Samadhi to Shitaldas
Brahmin, was a spiritual aspirant who was desperate to find God. Having
heard the glory of Ramanand Swami, he arrived in Faneni. However, there,
he learnt that Ramanand Swami had passed away only a few days before.
Disappointed, he was preparing to return when Shriji Maharaj called him. Instantly, by the grace of Maharaj, Shitaldas entered into samadhi. He saw that all the avatars and Ramanand Swami were paying homage to Shriji Maharaj. During the samadhi, Shitaldas had a wish to perform pujan of Shriji Maharaj and the countless akshar muktas.
Maharaj realised his thoughts and said, “To create countless forms of yourself take the name of each avatar in turn and wish that if they are the supreme God that you multiply into countless forms so that you may offer pujan to all simultaneously.” Shitaldas did as Shriji Maharaj suggested, but nothing happened.
Then Shriji Maharaj said, “Wish that if Ramanand Swami is the supreme God then you multiply into countless forms.” Again, nothing happened.
Finally, Maharaj said, “Wish that if Shriji Maharaj is the supreme God then you multiply into countless forms.” He did as advised, and instantly, he multiplied into innumerable forms and offered pujan to the akshar muktas.
Maharaj convinced many that He was the supreme God by blessing them with samadhi. Shitaldas, too, was convinced that Shriji Maharaj is the supreme God. So, he accepted the bhagvati diksha from Maharaj and was named Vyapkanand Swami.
