BABA RAMANAND JI
AVTAR BABA RAMANAND JI
Lord Vishnu took Avtaar as Ramanand in the
house of Baba Sai Das ji. It was due to the vardaan given to
Narottam Das (Baba ji in his previous birth) who worshipped Lord
Narayan for the entire life.
Avtaar Ramanand ji was a miraculous kid. He used to demonstrate
great knowledge about spirituality. Even big pandit also used to
be surprised on his knowledge. Very soon he became very famous
and loved one for the entire village just like Lord Krishna was
for his village.
Avtaar Ramanand ji used to take cows for feeding. One day, he
went through fields of one farmer and cows ate plants / fodder
of the field. Farmer got very upset and went to complaint to
Baba Saidas ji about Avtaar Ramanand ji. When Baba Saidas ji and
other villagers went to that field they all were surprised to
see that the field was intact infect in better condition.
One fine day, Avtaar Ramanand ji called his friends and took
them to a nearby place. He narrated them a story and told that
there used to be a divine pool called Brahmasar Sarovar which
vanished with time. All of them worked and dig the sarover.
Lord Vishnu had told to Shree Narottam Dass that he will take
birth in his house for 12 years and Narottam should not get him
marry. Accordingly, on attaining 12 years of age, Shree Ramanand
ji went to the Sarovar and immersed himself, leaving a (BERI)
stick in the ground. Mata Sushila ji was inconsolable to the
news of Shree Ramanad ji. One day Shree Ramamand ji came to her
dream and told her to come to the sarovar and meet him with a
condition of not disclosing this to anyone else. Next day she
went to sarovar and met Shree Ramanand ji, this continued for
few days. Somehow, she revealed this to villagers and then Shree
Ramanand ji immersed forever.
Avtaar Ramanand ji immersed in Narsingh chodash (14th day of
Indian calendar) and since then the monthly ritual of jyoti
prachand (Jyoti Enlightenment) started.
