Jambu Dvip is our dvip and it is the smallest of the seven dvips. Paramguru was pragat as a child in a jungle in the village of Kasor.
LOST CHILD, SAD MOTHER
A woman named Hetba was going to her parents home with her baby and she was passing through a jungle in the village of Kasor. While passing through, she became thirsty and started looking for a place to drink water. When she found a pond, she put her baby down on one side and went to go drink some water. However, as she was drinking water a wolf came and took her baby. When Hetba went to get her baby, he was missing. She became frantic and started screaming. She looked everywhere but she could not find her baby. She was going out of her mind and all of a sudden she saw a bright light coming from under a tree. When she went to look, she saw a young boy sitting under the tree in a padmasan (a yoga position for sitting). The young boy was Paramguru; he materialized under the tree and helped Hetba Mata. He calmed her and explained to her who he was, where he came from, and what he came with. He reminded her, when they were in Palki Dvip (the 6th dvip), Paramguru had made a promise to Hetba he would come as her son in the next dvip (Jambu Dvip). He told Hetba he would turn himself into a baby and she could take him home. No one would know except for them. Paramguru turned himself into a baby and Hetba took him home. When Paramguru was a child, his name was Kuver. Paramguru was pragat on Maha Sudee Bij in Vikram Sanvat 1829.
When Kuver turned 7 years old he decided to renounce the world and his family to begin his work of spreading Karta’s message. He decided to leave his home and find an appropriate Guru who he could get diksha from so he could begin his life of teaching others. He went to Krishnaswami Maharaj’s ashram and received diksha from him. Of course when Kuver decided to leave home, all his relatives, his parents, and his siblings were very upset. Kuver’s adoptive parents were Raghuvir and Hetba.
DIKSHA IN ONE DAY
Kuver selected Krishnaswami Maharaj as his Guru. Krishnaswami Maharaj’s ashram was in the village of Ode. Paramguru selected him because he was a virtuous and knowledgeable guru. Because of his Yog Sadhana, Krishnaswamin Maharaj was 750 years old. As soon as he met Kuver, Krishnaswami used his divine vision and right away knew Kuver was no ordinary child.
He asked, “Son, why are you here trying to make me your guru? You have more knowledge than anyone in the world. You should be my guru!”
Kuver replied, “I understand this. However, if I just make myself a Sant without getting diksha, then tomorrow, some ordinary person can do the same thing. Everyone needs a guru and every Sant needs to receive diksha before he can begin to lead others. Please accept me as your student. I want to set an example for others.”
Krishnaswami Maharaj accepted Kuver as a student and gave him a task to fill a portion of the farm land with water. He told Kuver not to put the bucket and rope down until he finished filling the land with water. Kuver stayed up all night, but the water would not fill. The next morning, Krishnaswami woke up and saw Kuver still working.
He asked, “What are you still doing.”
Kuver explained how the water wasn’t filling because a beaver had dug a hole underground and all the water was going out from the land through the hole.
Krishnaswami asked Kuver, “Why didn’t you just fill the hole?”
Kuver replied, “You told me not to put the bucket and rope down until the portion was filled with water. If I had filled the hole, I would have had to put the bucket and rope down and that would be against your orders.”
Krishnaswami Maharaj was very pleased and gave Kuver diksha right then and there.
After Kuver received diksha, he came to the village of Sarsa to establish Kaival Gyan Peeth. He stayed with the family of Dwarkadas Patel for 1 month and then with the help of a few village people, he set up Kaival Gyan Peeth on a piece of land under a bitter nimb tree. Paramguru did satsang under this tree. During his time, Parmguru did everything on this piece of land, as there was no mandir. The mandir came into existance 12 years after Paramguru went to Kaival Dhaam. Paramguru first started by writing the 10 Prabhata Pads and 9 Mangala Pads. He then began to write each one of his 15 granths. He would narrate and 4 Brahmins would write them. Paramguru also went from village to village doing Kaival Prachar and giving people Gyan (knowledge about Karta). He also gave so many people parchas (miracles) and helped people with all sorts of problems. He had hundreds of shishyas (students) and he guided so many people on the path to Karta. Paramguru went to Kaival Dhaam on Bhadarvad Sudee Purnima (full moon) in Vikram Sanvat 1934. When he went to Kaival Dhaam, his body turned into a bed of roses.
