Dadi Sandeshi Ji
From Princess to Servant : The Humble and Kindhearted Journey
Her Name was Lakshmi. She sang well and danced well too; that is why Brahma Baba named her ‘Ramneek Mohini’. She would entertain Brahma Baba and hence he also named her ‘Bindrabala’.
She was kind hearted, affectionate, humble, simple and had a very strong faith in the Almighty. Her whole family committed themselves towards the services of the then ‘Om Mandali’. For her, meditation was the foundation for her faith in God and Godly knowledge. She had plenty of visions of the divine form of the soul and the supreme soul, the deities in Heaven, their dress, decoration, golden palaces, royal court and gardens. Hence she was also called ‘Sandeshi’.
She was educated in the boarding administered by the Om Mandali and experienced the royal treatment that Brahma Baba gave the little girls. He treated them like princesses. Brahma Baba had taught her to neither hurt anyone with your behavior nor words; hence she always kept her behavior thus and made sure her speech was soft and words encouraging. She learnt from Brahma Baba how one can follow a meditative lifestyle and mix meditation with other regular tasks successfully and efficiently. Any task of service she’d perform with full concentration, calmness and alertness as she believed that it was the service for the Almighty. She always made the best use of any waste item and put it to use. This was something she learnt from Brahma Baba
Unwavering determination, infinite love –There was a time when there was not enough for the sustenance of the members of the organization, but her love for the Almighty and respect and trust in Brahma Baba and the Supreme was unshaken. She had stayed with Brahma Baba for the longest whilst all the others had moved to other places to serve and spread the word that God had arrived. She followed exactly what Brahma Baba asked her to do; to move ahead and do service. Thereafter, she served in Kolkata, Patna, Nepal and later served in Muzaffarpur and Bhubaneswar. She strived to make a powerful state and delivered the Godly knowledge in an interesting way and with divinity.
