In this universe, through the view and vision as a human being there is the self, ‘I am this body and mind complex’. This is the common view. The view of the enlightened Ones, the awakened Ones of this world of ours, is, 'I am the Knower’ of this ’self’ that is in front of me.’ Hence, the Knower is the ’Self’ and the known, the body mind complex is the ’self’. Prakruti is the word derived from sanskrit which simply means nature. However Gnani Purush Dadashri uses the word prakruti for that which is, in front of the eternal Knower—the Purush. Here he goes into unprecedented depth by opening up layer after layer the nature of one’s own prakruti (non-Self complex); its genesis, existence and dissolution.
Gnani or Jnani is the One who has known, is in the experience of, the eternal Self. Purush means the Self. Everything except the Self- the Atman or Atma is prakruti or the non-Self. Akram Vignan is that which is attained without doing anything, and the science behind this. A gentleman by the name of Ambalal M. Patel became a Gnani Purush in June 1958. This happened spontaneously within. The absolute light of the Self prevailed through Him from that time. In that state of the absolute Self, he became the instrument for the salvation of the world. The words that came out through his medium have become words that are now liberating hundreds of thousands of human beings who were seeking meaningful solutions for their pains. These satsang sessions of the Gnani Purush happened in Gujarati and were carefully preserved and are presented as they are, in many different languages. They are all in the form of questions and answers from Gnani Purush Dadashri.
This book, ‘Prakruti’, is the English translation of compilation of many satsangs that happened with Gnani Purush Dadashri. Some of these satsangs were presented in Akram Vignan Magazine, Aptavanis, Dadavani Magazine, and small books of Akram Vignan of Dadashri in Gujarati. The compilation that is under the heading of ‘Prakruti’, in Volume 1, of Aptavani 13 is now being presented here in this book. Aptavani 13 was published in Gujarati, in July 2002 by Atmagnani Dr. Niruben Amin.
In the quest for meaningful initial and final liberation, all that is needed is the right understanding. This understanding exists potentially as the energy of the Soul within everyone. The Gnani Purush facilitates the entry into that untapped infinite energy. The first barrier to this is the misunderstanding of the prakruti. So here, in this book Dadashri provides the exact way and vision to realize the nature of the prakruti and thus become free from it.
