Dadi Gulzar - Purity, Innocence...

Dadi Gulzar embodied the essence of purity and innocence, like a child untouched by the world’s stains. Her intellect was as clear as a crystal stream, and her conscience unburdened by the weight of wrongdoing. She possessed a rare talent for imparting profound spiritual wisdom in language so simple and accessible that it reached people of all backgrounds. This gift was born of her own profound experiences of the divine, which flowed through her like a sacred river.

Dadi Gulzar

Dadi (elder sister) Gulzar (meaning a garden blossoming with roses or flowers) was one of the key founding members of the institution. Dadi Gulzar was the Chief Administrative Head of Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Godly World Spiritual University from April 2020 to March 2021.

Early life

Dadi Gulzar was born in Sindh, Hyderabad (now in Pakistan) in the year 1929.  Her childhood name was Shobha. Dadi Gulzar’s biological mother lovingly called Dadi Allrounder had eight children including Dadi Gulzar who was the eldest. Dadi Allrounder was married into a very wealthy Sindhi family. Dadi Allrounder had deep love for God, she had read most of the scriptures; so when she met Brahma Baba (Dada Lekhraj), she had deep spiritual experiences. When Brahma Baba opened a boarding school for small children, Dadi Allrounder very willingly sent her eldest daughter Dadi Gulzar to the boarding school who was eight years of age at the time. Dadi Allrounder wanted at least one of her children to live a spiritual life. Thus began Dadi Gulzar’s journey on the spiritual path.

Despite having no knowledge of religious scriptures, Dadi Gulzar experienced deep love for God and spiritual joy while listening to the Godly divine versions called murli.  Dadi Gulzar frequently went into trance from an early age and had many spiritual visions.

Spiritual service

In 1950, when the organisation shifted from Karachi (now Pakistan) to Mount Abu (India), upon Baba’s direction, Dadi Gulzar started her spiritual service throughout India – mainly Delhi and Mumbai. Under her leadership many centres were opened in and around Delhi.

Throughout her spiritual journey, Dadi Gulzar visited upon invitation many countries around the world to connect people with spirituality, introduce them to RajYoga, teach the Art of Living and many other spiritual topics.

 Innocence and clear intellect

Dadi Gulzar had a sweet childlike innocence. Dadi was the epitome of purity. Dadi Gulzar had a very clean intellect and clear conscience. Dadi Gulzar had an art of explaining spiritual knowledge in a very simple and easy language which was easy to understand by the people from all the backgrounds; this was because of her own personal deep spiritual experiences. Despite being an introvert, Dadi Gulzar had a kind hearted sense of humour. Everything about her was very simple yet regal-like. Dadi Gulzar treated everyone equally, she never engaged in small talks.

Dadi Gulzar’s face was always fresh like a blooming flower.  Her mere presence used to spread the fragrance of spirituality and Godly love. No wonder, Baapdada (Almighty God Shiva through his corporeal medium Brahma Baba) lovingly gave Dadi the name of “Gulzar” (garden full of flowers) and “Hriday Mohini” (the one who attracts the heart through her divinity).

Dadi Gulzar followed Godly directions immaculately. Despite having physical ailments until the very end, she was a tireless spiritual social worker.

Dadi Gulzar attained her angelic stage and left her mortal coil on the 11th March, 2021 in Mumbai. Dadi was 92 years of old.

Brahma Baba was the corporeal medium of God Shiva. Through Brahma Baba (also known as Bhagirath in the scriptures), God Shiva revealed Himself and imparted the spiritual knowledge of the Soul and Karma philosophy.  After Brahma Baba reached his angelic and left his mortal coil in 1969, Dadi Gulzar became God Shiva’s corporeal medium. Hence, Dadi Gulzar will always be remembered by the spiritual family as master Bhagirathi (Chota Nandi or small calf) who was God Shiva’s instrument to impart spiritual knowledge for the betterment of human souls. Dadi Gulzar in her subtle form continues to be Shiv Baba’s right hand in the work of world transformation.

Adi Ratan - Instruments

The deeper the roots of a tree, the stronger and more durable it is. Similarly, how deep are the roots of renunciation and tapaya of the people who run any organization, that organization is equally powerful, long-lived and free of obstacles. Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya is a unique organization in this sense. Each and every founding member of this organization (Adi Ratna), are such ascetics who, keeping themselves, their sacrifices a secret, tirelessly, selflessly under the guidance of the Almighty, did spiritual service for humanity.
