Ben Prabhu visits Dubai

January 2017

Ben Prabhu, the spiritual head of Shrimad Rajchandra Mission, Delhi visited Dubai for the first time, with her followers.  She graced the home of Birenbhai Jasani and gave a discourse to Raj Saubhag Ashram mumukshus in Dubai.

She elaborated on Letter number 40 from the Vachnamrut, specifically explaining the 4 qualities that a mumukshu must possess as mentioned by Shrimadji.

  • વિશાલ બુદ્ધિ 
  • સરળતા (straighforward)
  • મધ્યસ્થતા (equanimity)
  • જિતેંદ્રિયતા (unshackle from slavery of the senses)

Giving perspective Ben Prabhu said:  before reacting, we should activate our buddhi with the question - will my reaction and action bring in new karmas? Pause and reflect before reacting.  This is વિશાલ બુદ્ધિ.

સરળતા means lack of duplicity. When there is no difference between speech and conduct, it brings in the quality of straightforwardness. This precious human birth should not be wasted in being deceitful.  These two qualities are for internal transformation.  While maintaining your equanimity towards people who are unappreciative of your help and support is મધ્યસ્થતા .  And trying to overcome our slavery to our senses is જિતેંદ્રિયતા by recognising the omniscience and power of our Atma. These are the qualities that are required to be inculcated by every mumukshu desirous to attaining નિજ શુદ્ધતા  or moksh, as Shrimadji said in Atma Siddhi : 'મોક્ષ કહ્યો નિજ શુદ્ધતા'.

Ben Prabhu was also given an overview of the humanitarian activities undertaken by Raj Saubhag Ashram, Sayla and expressed satisfaction when informed that Sayla Ashram mumukshus have been organizing 3 swadhyays every week in Dubai.
