The spirit of dishonour entertained by a MURIA SADHU (ordained ascetic) or a member of SHREE SARVESHWARI SAMOOH towards any of the three, namely, the GURU, the DHARMA and the SAMOOH, will embrace all the three within its sweep. There is no scope for doubt about it. A man of this attitude is like one who eats left-over food. There is absolutely no possibility that he will nourish a sense of honour for us, the entire SARVESHWARI family. We should not even expect it. "
"The AGHORI fears none. Take it from me that, though flags of many kinds, symbol of the majority, are right now in evidence in the world, the possibility is that there will be only one flag, that of SREE SARVESHWARI SAMOOH, in the near future."
Shri Sarveshwari Samooh is the resort of my yogic sport. It is my firm conviction that all the existing institutions or religions have been evolved in different countries and nations by my own "atman" (soul) which is pervading the world in various forms.
Aghori does not stop in the way, they have got speed in their feet. They reach the desired destination. They are not bound under the Bondage of caste and creed. They have got momentum in the feet, they do not stop.

Sri Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram Ji

Early life

Parampujya Baba Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram Ji was born in a small village named Gundi in Bhojpur district of Bihar state. According to the Hindi calendar Parampujya was born on the Shukla Saptami (seventh day of the bright fortnight) of Bhadrapad (sixth month of Hindu calendar) in Samvat 1994 (A.D.1937). Parampujya Aghoreshwar was the only child of His parents- father Sri Baijnath Singh and mother Shrimati Lakhraji Devi. His father was a well to do landlord, widely known all around the area. Before His birth, the mother had a dream that the child she was going to give birth to would not be an ordinary mortal, but a ‘Bhagwan’ (God). Therefore, when the child was born his father named Him Bhagwan.

Unfortunately, when Bhagwan had barely reached the age of five, His father Sri Baijnath Singh passed away. After his death, the child was looked after by His grandfather Sri Hridai Prasad Singh. His grandmother took great interest in His upbringing and Bhagwan too was very attached to her. She also arranged for His early education. Bhagwan, however, seemed little interested in education and was more inclined to go to the temple to worship God and meditate. Bhagwan had with Him religious books containing stories of different devotees like Bhakta Prahlaad, Bhakta Dhruva etc. He loved His fellow companions very much, and often organized collective games and taught other boys to be fearless and courageous.

Noticing Bhagwan’s spiritual inclination, His family members built a small temple in the village and Bhagwan himself installed a Shivalinga in it and ever since He devoted more and more time to prayers, chanting and meditation. The child, Bhagwan remained with His family only up to the age of seven years. After that He did not stay at any one place, never ate in His house but was fed by people in their homes or in the temples. Keenly interested in the worship of the Almighty, He even forgot to eat and remained without food and water for many days. He never cared for his clothes, comforts or protection of his body from heat and cold and thus automatically started a life of penance. When interrogated by His family members, He felt uneasy and therefore, left the village and went to visit the sacred spots in holy places like Gaya and Puri. He stayed in these places for sometime and then came back to His village for a brief period.

He stayed in these places for sometime and then came back to His village for a brief period.

Initiation: Aghor Diksha

Bhagwan finally left the surroundings of Gundi village at the age of nine years and came to the holy city of Kashi (1946-49). He had a longing to have a darshan of Lord Vishwanath. He reached the Dashashwamedh ghat but from there He did not know where to go. Meanwhile, an old woman in a silk sari approached Him and asked if He wanted to go to the Vishwanath temple. He replied ‘yes indeed’. He was asked to take a bath in the Ganges after which the old woman accompanied Him to the temple. He was overjoyed by the darshan of Lord Kashi Vishwanath and wished to remain there for the rest of His life. But soon after He and the old woman moved on towards the Annapurna temple, where to His great surprise, the old woman disappeared. He was puzzled as He did not know who She was.

Nevertheless, He started towards the Harishchandra ghat where there is also the place of Maharaj Sri Baba Kina Ram. Here, He happened to meet the then Mahant of the place, Baba Rajeshwar Ram Ji (the 11th successor of Maharaj Sri Baba Kina Ram Ji). It was decided that He should join the order of Aghories and go through the ceremony of diksha (initiation). Although prior to this, He had been initiated by a Vaishnav Saint, He took Aghor Diksha from Baba Rajeshwar Ram Ji and was named Bhagwan Ram.

Self-Realisation

However, Bhagwan Ram could not remain in Baba Kina Ram’s Ashram for long; He left the place in 1949-50 (age of twelve-thirteen). He wandered on the banks of the Ganga and Sonbhadra and carried on penance and worship of His own. He attained self-realisation in His early teens (age of fourteen-fifteen) after undergoing severe penance of three days and three nights sitting on the banks of Ganges, in the cremation grounds of Mehraura (near Sakaldiha in Uttar Pradesh).

People of the area started respecting and paying reverence to Parampujya Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram. The poor and the suffering came to Him for His blessings. Many were relieved of their suffering just by being in His presence. The devotees never had to express their feelings to Parampujya Aghoreshwar. Words were not necessary in His presence and even without a word being spoken the people realized that they had benefited. A mere glimpse of Parampujya was enough to initiate peace and pious feelings in the hearts of people. After coming in His proximity, one used to feel the presence of Almighty within. He would take no credit for the miracles; His love for the fellow humans was all encompassing.

Early Ashrams

Parampujya Aghoreshwar stayed for sometime in a hut made beside a pond in the Manihara village. Staying in Manihara, He established an Ashram known as the ‘Adi Ashram’ at Hariharpur (1953-54) near Tajpur village of Sakaldiha.

Parampujya Aghoreshwar carried on His penance in the valleys of the Vindhyas and stayed for sometime in a place called Kali-Koh in the Astha-Bhuji hills of the Vindhyan range. It was here that the erstwhile ruler of Jashpur, Rajarshi Vijay Bhusan Singhdeo Ji came for the darshan of Parampujya Aghoreshwar and invited Him to Jashpur. Rajarshi Vijay Bhusan Singhdeo Ji donated lands in Narainpur, Sogra and Gamharia villages in the Jashpur district of Madhya Pradesh (now Chattisgarh). Parampujya Aghoreshwar established the three Jashpur Ashrams; the ‘Janseva Abhed Ashram’ Narainpur (Jashpur) in 1957-58, the ‘Brahm-nishthalya Ashram’ Sogra (Jashpur) in 1960 and ‘Aghor Peeth Ashram’ Vamdeo Nagar, Gamharia (Jashpur) in 1962.

Service to the masses

Personal salvation is not the ultimate goal of true saints like Parampujya Aghoreshwar, they are eager to share and spread the attained knowledge for the welfare of all. In order to provide social dimension to spiritual devotion, Parampujya Aghoreshwar established the ‘Baba Bhagwan Ram Trust’ on January 30, 1961, which is registered under the Trust Act. In order to carry out the welfare activities of this Trust, Parampujya established the institution ‘Sri Sarveshwari Samooh’. Its first establishment day was celebrated on September 21, 1961 in the garden of Haji Suleiman in Maduadih, Varanasi and the institution was formally registered under the Society Registration Act on November 28, 1961. Initiating the welfare works of the ‘Samooh’, Parampujya Aghoreshwar, with the help of voluntary contributions from the non affluent populace, started the leprosy treatment centre – ‘Avadhoot Bhagwan Ram Kustha Seva Ashram’ (ABRKSA) in 1962 at Parao, Varanasi. Presently the Head Office of ‘Sri Sarveshwari Samooh’ is set up in this Ashram. Parampujya also established the ‘Aghor Parishad Trust’ on March 26, 1985, which is registered under the Trust Act. All the three institutions established by Parampujya Aghoreshwar i.e. – the ‘Baba Bhagwan Ram Trust’, ‘Sri Sarveshwari Samooh’ and the ‘Aghor Parishad Trust’ are dedicated to enrich public life by serving needy and helpless in society and developing mutual cooperation.

Travels & Reformation Activities

Parampujya Aghoreshwar travelled in every nook and corner of India and also undertook journeys to the Himalayas. He also visited Nepal, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, France, Italy, Britain, USA and Mexico. Parampujya directly contacted Aughar Sidhas (saints) and Sidha Peeths (holy places) and denounced various misgivings in the society regarding the Aghor tradition owing to the erratic behaviour of some sadhus. Like a true reformist, Parampujya brought changes in Aghori practices in tune with modern times. He simplified the tradition so that it appeals to the masses. Parampujya Aghoreshwar also founded the ‘Aghor Research Institute and Library’, at present running under the Aghor Parishad Trust. It is not only an institute of Aghor-Sadhna but also a guide to the curious researchers carrying on research in the Aghor tradition.

During the course of His travels, Parampujya had ample opportunities to see and study the life of people at large. Parampujya challenged the myths and pomp and show associated with current religious customs and social practices. “The Shastras (holy texts) have brainwashed you. Ignore them”. Parampujya Aghoreshwar would preach time and again and thus gave a new direction to the poor and oppressed people of modern times. As a true ‘Yugpurush’ (suited to the age), Parampujya harnessed both medical science and religion for the service of common man.

The Ashrams founded by Parampujya are not a burden on society. The devotees labour themselves, produce crops and vegetables that are not only sufficient for the inhabitants, devotees and visitors, but are also gifted to well wishers of the Ashram. Parampujya Aghoreshwar said, “Unlike the temples of today, we do not sow seeds of conflict. We inspire people irrespective of the religion to which they belong, towards common brotherhood and enlightenment”. Parampujya Aghoreshwar amalgamated Aghor sadhna with human service which is practiced in His Ashrams. On account of His reformation activities, Parampujya Aghoreshwar is known as ‘a reformer among saints’ (‘ek Aughar leek se hat kar’).

Maha-Nirvan

After rendering life long service to the depressed lepers, destitute and exploited people, Parampujya Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram Ji took Maha-Nirvan on November 29, 1992 in Manhattan, New York. The last words from Parampujya Aghoreshwar were:

“Ramta hai so kaun ghat-ghat mein virajat hai,
Ramta hai so kaun, bata de koi”

(I, Aghoreshwar, move freely everywhere, in all times. I, Aghoreshwar, am present in the rays of sun, in the rays of moon, in molecules of air and in every drop of water. I, Aghoreshwar, am present in all beings of the earth, in trees, in vines, in flowers and in vegetation. I, Aghoreshwar, am present in every speck and every atom of the space between the earth and the sky. I am in light and in darkness too. I have a form and I am formless too. I am in happiness and in sorrow too. I am in hope and in hopelessness too. I roam in past, present and future at the same time. I am knowable and unknowable too. I am free and fettered too. You will find Me in whichever form you search Me with devotion as your ally.” True True True)

His disciple, Pujya Gurupad Sambhava Ram Ji was beside Him when Parampujya Aghoreshwar left this mortal world. According to His wishes, His body was consigned to flames on the banks of Ganges in Varanasi. This place is known as ‘Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram Maha Vibhuti Sthal’, which is at a distance of one kilometre from Avadhoot Bhagwan Ram Kustha Seva Ashram, Sri Sarveshwari Samooh Samsthan Devasthanam.
