Jalaram Jayanti - Birth Anniversary of Sri Jalram Bapa

Jalaram Jayanti is the birth anniversary of Shri Jalaram Bapa (1799-1881 AD) one of the greatest saints of modern era. Jalaram Jayanti 2018 date is November 15. Shri Jlaram Bapa used to feed people and this was his main spiritual and devotional Sadhana. Echoing the great teaching of the Vedas, Shri Jalaram used to say that by feeding hungry people I am feeding Narayana – the great teaching of Sanatana Dharma which says that all animate and inanimate rise and merge in the Supreme Being.

Shri Jalaram was born on the seventh day of the waxing phase of moon (Shukla Paksha) in Kartik Month (October – November) in Virpur in Saurashtra in 1799 AD.

The mass feeding that Shri Jalaram started is known as Sada Vrat and is still continued by his disciples.

Today, Shri Jalaram Bapa has devotees around the world and they practice the Sada Vrat.

Quotes on water from Rig Veda

Waters which come from heaven, or those that wander dug from the earth, or flowing free by nature, bright, purifying, speeding to the ocean, here let those waters, goddesses protect me. Rig Veda 7.49.2
I will declare the manly deeds of Indra, the first that he achieved, the Thunder-wielder. He slew the Dragon, then disclosed the waters and cleft the channels of the mountain torrents. Rig Veda 1.32.1
Then even nothingness was not, nor existence, There was no air then, nor the heavens beyond it. What covered it? Where was it? In whose keeping was there then cosmic water, in depths unfathomed? At first there was only darkness wrapped in darkness. All this was only un-illumined water. That one which came to be, enclosed in nothing,
Arose at last, born of the power of heat. Rig Veda 10.129.1, 3
