Pujya Deepakbhai Desai was born on 9th May, 1953 in Mumbai, Maharashtra but currently in Gujarat.
His elder brother brought Him to meet Param Pujya Dadashri at the age of 17, intending this meeting to support Pujya Deepakbhai in His studies.
Soon afterwards, Pujya Deepakbhai attained Self Realization from Param Pujya Dadashri in the Gnan Vidhi ceremony.
Pujya Deepakbhai credits meeting Param Pujya Dadashri and attending Gnan Vidhi as the two great turning points of His life.
Where He had previously been burdened by a shy and introverted nature, Param Pujya Dadashri’s influence empowered Pujya Deepakbhai to successfully complete His engineering studies and, over the coming decades, build three successful engineering businesses.
Simultaneously, Pujya Deepakbhai was nurtured for further spiritual development by Param Pujya Dadashri and Pujya Niruma.
With all His available free time, Pujya Deepakbhai attended satsangs (spiritual discourse), performed seva (selfless service), and engaged in continuous Self-introspection – sincerely seeking to understand the full dimension of Param Pujya Dadashri’s spiritual science.
In 1987, before Param Pujya Dadashri’s passing, Pujya Niruma and Pujya Deepakbhai were given the spiritual abilities to conduct satsangs and Gnan Vidhi ceremonies on His behalf.
Together, they carried on Param Pujya Dadashri’s mission with a harmonious spirit of oneness until Pujya Dr. Niruma’s sudden passing in 2006.
Since then, Pujya Deepakbhai has officiated over the burgeoning spiritual community (Adalaj, Gujarat), celibate male and female groups, teen and children’s programs, and ongoing worldwide satsangs and Gnan Vidhi programs for the seekers of Self Realization.
Pujya Deepakbhai, the current representative of Akram Vignan, is beloved by all who meet Him, and is especially renowned for His extraordinary level of awareness and extreme humility.
