The Gita-Prakashan was not established based on the inspiration, desire, or efforts of any special person. At its very core are [the blessings of] the infinitely Compassionate Lord and the resolve of the Lord’s devotees. In the beginning, on the auspicious occasion of the Gita Jayanti 2010 (VikramSamvat 2067) was published ‘Sanjivanii-Sudha’ based on Paramsraddheya Swamiji Shree Ramsukhdasji Mahārāj’s commentary on the Gita,‘Sadhaka-Sanjivani.’ Thereafter, according to God’s will, other books also started getting published; and, in this manner, the ‘Gita-Prakashan’ came into being.
The sole purpose of the ‘Gita-Prakashan’ is to disseminate and publicize the celestial teachings of Paramsraddheya Swamiji Shree Ramsukhdasji Maharaj. Benefitting from his experience-based teachings, any seeker from any country of the world, any race, religion, sect etc., can easily attain the supreme joy.
A Brief Introduction
A Liberated, Self-Realized, and God-loving great Seer, Paramsraddheya Swamiji Shree Ramsukhdasji Maharaj was born during the month of Falguna (Februrary /March) in 1904 (Vikram Samvat 1960) in a small village ‘Madhpur’ of district Nagor located in the state of Rajasthan. He was made sadhu by his mother at the tender age of four. Ever-steadfast honoring the duty of a sadhu, he stayed for a period of approximately one hundred and two years on earth, living a life of complete renunciation.For his entire life,he kept showering the nectar of satsang, going from village to village and from city to city. Rarely indeed any saint travelled so far and wide within India as did Swamiji.
Staying away from self-promotion and only for the sake of spiritual welfare of the humankind, his main purpose in life was to proclaim the Divine message occurring in the Bhagavad Gita. Therefore, he always refrained from such things as getting his picture taken, having his feet touched reverentially, forming disciples, accepting gifts, amassing things like money etc., building an ashram, having a mob of followers, etc. In this manner, neither did he associate himself with any person, organization, tradition, ashram, etc., nor did he make anyone his disciple, promoter, or successor. Living solely on the alms for all his life, by thought, word, and deed, he selflessly remained steadfast in the spiritual welfare of the humankind.
How to obtain the highest spiritual welfare through the easiest most method—this alone was his goal and he devoted all his life in its discovery. On this subject, he discovered many novel and unique methods and brought those to person to person through his discourses and writings.
Not insisting on any particular viewpoint, ism, sect etc, he verily proclaimed what he experienced himself. He explained the most subtle, the most intricate, and the most profound topics of the spiritual path in a simple manner so that even an ordinarily educated person could easily understand them and enshrine them in his or her life.
The very living embodiment of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Paramsraddheya Shree Swamiji Maharaj also wrote an unparalleled commentary on the Gita entitled ‘Sadhaka-Sanjivani,’ which is his unique gift to the spiritual world. In addition, he has also composed several other wonderful sacred texts such as Gita-Darpaṇ, Gita Prabodhani, Sadhan-Sudha-Sindhu, etc. These sacred texts are written on the strength of personal experience, and not on the basis of scholarship.
This great glory of the spiritual world reverted back to Godhead (tirobhava) on July 3, 2005 (Ashada Krishna 12, Vikram Samvat 2062) on the bank of the holy river Ganges, Gita Bhavan, Svaragashram (Rishikesh).
It was the special instruction of the utterly detached, embodiment of renunciation, Paramsraddheya Shree Swamiji Maharaj, that no one should write his biography. This brief introduction is written by way of “shakha-chandra-nyaya,” (analogically pointing out the moon through the branch of a tree), so that maximum number of people, by becoming familiar with this great saint, may benefit from his teachings.
