I was charged under section 364 / 364 A of IPC. I am a born fighter. My fight has been through wrong means for acquiring wealth that ultimately led me to Jail. Now I fight for Truth and to establish social harmony in my village and villages around. If spiritual values are taught to an individual from childhood, such teachings are likely to guide one during critical times. They will be spared of the agony which Karamveer underwent at the formative stage of his life. I admit I was fascinated to amass wealth by taking the shortcut of criminal ways. On that dreadful day, I was falsely implicated in a kidnapping case and pushed behind the bars of Tihar Jail.
To be in the Jail is a dreadful experience. For an ambitious, sensitive youngster, it is the ultimate disaster. When a new prisoner arrives, old timers and hardened criminals try to subjugate him. I was often involved in frequent quarrels of the rival gangs of the prisoners. When two members of the rival gangs were killed in which I was not involved, I was transferred to High Security Ward. In that Ward a fellow prisoner introduced me to Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan . I began to attend the spiritual discourses regularly in their Ashram within the Jail Complex.
Soon I was blessed with Brahmgyan with the grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji and my experiences during Gyan were extraordinary. A new Karamveer was born that day. The Jail authorities were astonished about my transformation and entrusted me with the responsibility of conducting physical exercise courses for about 1500 Jail inmates. I used to meditation (Sadhana) regularly and enjoyed great divine experiences. Upon my release from Jail, I actively involved myself in socio-spiritual activities in my villages and helped them to resolve their differences advising them that one should avoid legal battles and all issues can be sorted out peacefully .
I am in Tihar Jail charged under Section 302, 452, 120 B of IPC. I had entered the Jail as an unrepentant, hardened, proud criminal and have come out of it as the humble and noble human being. My former fellow-criminals approach and put pressure on me to renew the old business of crimes. In return, I give them a dose of spiritual sermon.
I am a graduate in Arts and a registered medical practitioner. I was doing good practice and earned well. But a family property dispute took a serious turn and two members of each group were murdered. One bad act led to the other and soon I was into the world of crimes and illicit supply of arms. Some famous gangsters became my friends. When my family members came to know about my connections, they cut off all relations with me and inserted an advertisement in newspapers disinheriting me from all family properties. I joined politics and was elected as a Municipal Councilor.
In Jail I became desperate as my freedom was totally curtailed and suffered from depression. One of the jail inmates suggested to me a remedy. He asked me, "Why don't you attend the spiritual discourses of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan ?" I was not willing to accept his advice. Earlier also I had surrendered to a Guru and he had given me a Name with the assurance that it will solve all my problems. But nothing of that sort happened and I lost faith in Gurus. But the spiritual discourse of this Sansthan impacted my inner world deeply and I continued to attend them regularly. Soon with the grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji I was blessed with Branmgyan. My practical experiences during Gyan Deeksha, observance of several sunrises simultaneously, took me to the path of divinity.
With regular Sadhana, I am a changed individual now. My tendency to lose temper abruptly has subsided. I have developed a burning desire to serve humanity. "What has happened to you?"-- my former friends from the world of crimes ask me. I wish the same thing: What has happened with me should happen with them also! Get blessed with Brahmgyan!
Out of 150 candidates, I was selected and topped the list. I was not an engineer, not even a qualified welder. I had studied up to ninth standard. Some US companies have their own way of judging the merits of a candidate, not by certificates but by the worth of an individual and his expertise. I, along with my father Gopal Singh were awarded the welding contact job for manufacture of 165 dumpers My M/s. Unit Ring Mining, a US Company. We earned well. My father fell sick and series of unfortunate events engulfed our family. I was on job-hunting.
"We have to recover the installments on behalf of a finance company and the use of this weapon cannot be ruled out," the gentleman said and he handed over to me a fairly large-sized dagger and said "The installments must be recovered!" The next day the entire operation was over in 10 minutes and we made a dash to the pre-determined destination to share the booty. I got Rs.1500/ plus a gold ring. I had earned quite a sum, within minutes. After some days, when I went to meet the same friend, I was promptly arrested by the police under Section 398 of IPC and sent to Jail. Nobody from our family, as far as the roots I remember, had ever entered the Jail. With Jail stamp on my forehead I decided, once out of the Jail, I must participate in bigger crime actions. Endless court errands followed. What is the fate of the case? The fate is date!
One day I heard a soul-stirring spiritual discourse from a Preacher of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan in the Jail Ashram. Soon I was blessed with Brahm Gyan with the benign grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji . My divine experiences of the inner world stunned me! Am I this? Yes! God is there; God was there; and God will be there. Forever it is He, Him and His. He alone was, is and will be! All else is myth, illusive and transitory! Intense sadhana followed. As on date, all my family members and about twenty of my friends and relatives are blessed with Brahm Gyan.
I was born in a small family, nurtured in absence of traditional and moral values by my mother. Entering into a love marriage also could not help me to change the mindset and thirst for running after money. I was continuously rising on the ladder of bad company as I had a formula of short cut way to earn money. Discord with the husband urged her to take divorce and separate from him. Husband denied of breaking the marriage particularly to secure future of 3 children. Thus, i plotted murder of my husband along with my mother. Although I was successful in achieving this with the help of her few friends but landed myself into Central Jail No.6 of Tihar. Earlier I did not accept the blunder committed but later on as I was involved with the activities of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan , the truth came out of my mouth.
I got initiated to Brahm Gyan soon after getting lodged in Prison and after a year or so was proved convict and rewarded punishment for 14 years. This was the most difficult time when Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan volunteers gave me full support and counseling. I was undergoing a transformation phase in prison while sitting in meditation for certain hours when my children were living alone with this tragedy without parents. The positive change started propping up within myself which were transparent, clear and visible to all. Simultaneously, I took on earning through Livelihood Unit Set for needy prisoners by Antakranti. I can proudly say now that Roopa has emerged as a respectful women who has control over foul language, a responsible prisoner who finishes her punishment duty very sincerely, a mother who works at Night Lungar in Prison to save money that can be sent to home for supporting my children education and other necessities, and a live example of Personality transformation for other prisoners.
I never imagined even in dreams that my friends would drag me into the prison walls some day. I was charged with the case of robbery despite of committing any crime. Initially it was a shocking and dangerous experience to survive here but I soon got in touch with Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan working for prisoners inside and started attending various counseling sessions, side by side was engaged into painting workshop known as 'Yathart'h where I learnt painting and delivered beautiful paintings on canvases. Of course Yatharth served as medication for diminishing his nervous breakdown but how could that end completely as I was the only sole earning member of family having mother, wife and a child, all left outside alone.
I came out of the Prison after a year but then by the time was indebted with huge amount of money. So I started working at some company but then was not satisfied. At the same time Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan was offering me support and extended help to place me at work under Antarkranti . I was now employed at warehouse and was given task of billing and creating challans. Though, was very new to these tasks but Antarkranti showed full confidence & trust in me and acted as guide at every step. Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan arranged for my education sponsorship and was admitted to Bachelor of Social Work Course from IGNOU. With hard work and strong desire to study compelled me to balance both study and work well. Gradually I overtook additional bigger tasks and responsibilities. Now I am a man who has freed himself from debt. An encouraging environment and exposure helped me to groom and proud to say that am currently working as Warehouse assistant at Sahara Pvt Limited, Indore.
"Antarkranti is a life changing Program which has made me to live a dignified, deserving and respectful life in this world of competitive markets".
"No sooner I received Brahm Gyan from Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji , my Third Eye opened and I saw light. Flashes, beams and rays of light! What a great practical experience it was! I was reborn, but retaining the same mortal frame..." This was the experience of Govind Pal who was lodged in Tihar Jail charged under Sections 460, 380, 411, 434 of IPC. My son was six months old when I was put behind the bars. I could not enjoy his loving childhood company, the best period for the parents in their life! Now he has reservations in recognizing me. His mother rarely brought him to Jail during the weekly meetings and rightly so. I was very aggressive by nature. Bitter over my fate, my disposition towards others turned from bad to worse. I picked up quarrels and bet my fellow prisoners on the slightest pretext, resulting in prison wardens punishing me mercilessly. I was hospitalized in the Jail for over two months, with my left leg fractured.
My friend in the prison, Mukund told me about Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan . I had observed him doing Sadhana for hours together. I was wondering why he was torturing himself sitting in a corner in that still pose! "What is this God subject he is talking about? If God is there why many innocents should suffer and get humiliated like me in Jail?" But after listening to some spiritual discourses, many things became clear. With the abundant and eternal grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji , I was blessed with Brahm Gyan . No doubt I was behind the bar and yet I experienced a sense of freedom! Freedom forever! When I was released on bail I had decided one thing for certain. Notwithstanding my economic necessities, I will not do anything which is against the philosophy of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan . I will not forsake the path of truth under any circumstances and will do meditation regularly.
