A sweet baby-girl was born on December 2nd in 1944 to the
wealthy Amin family in Aurangabad. Her parents named her
'Niranjana'. Niranjana, was showered with a lot of care,
love, affection and special attention by all, as she was the only
girl amongst all her five brothers. They all lovingly called her
'Niru'. Niru was a very sharp and intelligent girl, who
also had a mischievous side to her.
From a very young age, Niru knew she wanted to become a doctor,
not to make money, but to help those in need. Niru studied in
Mumbai and graduated with a medical degree from Aurangabad Medical
College. Whilst she was in her final year at college, her elder
brother, told her about Pujya Dada Bhagwan. What
appealed to young Niru were the words "……after attaining this Akram
Vignan no worldly happiness or sorrow can affect your inner peace
and happiness…." Hearing these words made a strong impact on young
Niru and she began to seriously think about attending Pujya
Dadashri's gnan-vidhi and attaining self realization.
On June 29, 1968, Niru met Param Pujya Dadashri for the very
first time, in Vadodara. Instantly upon seeing him, a strong desire
arose within her,"How wonderful would it be if I could serve Param
Pujya Dadashri until my final breath!"At this first meeting, Niru,
in her heart, had completely surrendered herself to the Gnani. On
8th July 1968 she took 'Gnan' from Dadashri.
Niru finished her medical education and became a MBBS doctor.
She also successfully completed her M.D. in gynaecology in
Aurangabad. Everyone in the family expected young Niru to set up a
practice, however, Niru had different plans of her own. She
thought, "If I practice as a good and honest doctor, may be, I
would heal people's physical diseases, however, if I serve and look
after the Gnani then many people's mental, emotional and
intellectual problems will be healed by the 'Enlightened
Atma-Gnani' and His unique 'Akram Vignan'.
So, Niru at the tender age of 23, left her home and all its
comforts to serve Dadashri and assist him in achieving his goal of
liberating the world. She served Dadashri with the utmost devotion,
day and night for over 20 years. Niru would not only look after
Dadashri's every personal need but would ensure that everything
needed for satsang was also taken care of. She served Dadashri like
a nurse, a mother and a daughter and travelled around the world by
his side. Niru became a silent instrument in aiding his mission to
impart this knowledge to the world.
Param Pujya Dadashri clearly understood Pujya Niruma's strong
desire for the salvation of the world. He began to mould her and
prepare her to take on this mission after his demise. In 1987,
during Param Pujya Dadashri's final days, satisfied with her
progress, he said to her,"I am very pleased with you Niruben.
This Niruben is a great instrument for the world's salvation. She
will have to become a mother to the whole world. Whenever Niruben
wants, Dadashri will speak from within."Thus, he blessed her
with his special spiritual powers so that she too could grace
others with Self-realization and continue the work he had started.
She in turn, promised to fulfill his vision of the world's
salvation, until her last breath.
Pujya Niruma departed for Mahavideha Kshetra on 19th March 2006.
In her final moments she asked us to give her a promise, to 'Live
in love & harmony with all'. Her subtle presence can be felt,
providing us with the inner strength to live up to the promise she
had asked of us. An elegant memorial of white marble stands at her
final resting grounds within Simandhar city.
Today Param Pujya Dadashri's mission continues with the same
principles of purity under the guidance of Pujyashree
Niruma had a lot of love for kids and youth.
Taking into consideration the speciality of the children of this
generation, Niruma used to organize "Sanskar Sinchan Shibirs" for
children. It had come in her vision that by focussing on the
children, Param Pujya Dadashri's Science would spread rapidly
because the children themselves would pull their parents along.
She once commented, "One shibir done for children brings about
changes which are much faster and stronger, than the change
observed in mahatmas after 3-4 shibirs. The children tell us
everything in the shibir; wherever they are stuck and they take
home solutions." Although a lot of change was observed in the
children through the camps, the children wanted to meet every week
so that they could get right guidance and understanding to help
them develop as individuals, hence the start of the MHT centres."
