#Neem Karoli Baba#

Baba is a word found in Hindi literature, that means “father,” “grandfather” or “wise old man.” It is used to show respect for an older man. There is another name for baba called a monk.

A monk is a man who has dedicated his life to religion, partly by giving up some aspects of regular, worldly life. Many monks live together in a religious community or Ashram.

But Neem Karoli Baba is such a Baba of India, whom you can be called an incarnation of God and can also be called a Sant. He is famous not only in India but more popular among foreign devotees as well.

  • Among several foreign devotees, Steve Jobs, along with his friend Dan Kottke, traveled to India in April 1974 to study Hinduism and Indian spirituality. They planned also to meet Neem Karoli Baba but came to know that the guru had died the previous year.
  • Hollywood actress Julia Roberts was also influenced by Neem Karoli Baba. A picture of him drew Roberts to Hinduism.
  • Influenced by Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg visited Neem Karoli Baba’s ashram in Kainchi. Larry Brilliant took Google’s Larry Page and Jeffrey Skoll, co-founder of eBay, on the pilgrimage.

Although Baba in India is identified with his big ashrams, but he was such a Baba who was against the ashrams, and also against the disciple system.

Perhaps you have heard about the Neem Karoli Baba. today, I would like to share some miracle stories of Baba.

His childhood name was Lakshmi Narayan Sharma, and he was born around 1900 in a wealthy Brahmin family in Akbarpur village of Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Wandering Sadhu

 After being married by his parents at the age of 11, he left home to become a wandering sadhu.

He spent about 10-15 yrs wandering in Gujrat and the adjoining area. His father was told by someone that he saw a monk in Neem Karoli village (which was renamed as Neem Karoli Baba) in the Farukhabad district of Uttar Pradesh, whose face resembles that of his son.

He later returned home, after the repeated request of his father, to live a settled married life. He fathered two sons and a daughter. But his mind was not adjusted in the family and again they left the house.

This time he built his Taposthal on Almora Nainital Road, about 17 km from Nainital in Uttarakhand, which later became famous as Kainchi Dham. A fair (Mela) is held every year on 15th June in Kainchi Dham to commemorate the same.

Very few people know that he (Neem Karoli Baba) attained enlightenment at the age of 17. Baba was also known as Tallaiya Baba.

There are so many astonishing and interesting stories related to Baba.

Miracles of Neem Karoli Baba

 Once Ram Dass came to India from America, he was such a big drug addict and he used to swallow two-three LSD (the most intense drug of intoxication) in a day.

One day he went to Karoli Baba, who was a wonderful teacher with extraordinary abilities, he was divine, a very capable Tantrik, an extraordinary person, and a devotee of Hanuman ji.

Ram Dass came to Baba and said that I have a real material which gives the joy of heaven. If you eat it, then all the doors of knowledge are opened.

 Do you know anything about it ?  Ram Dass said.

 Neem Karoli Baba asked,— Tell me, what is this ?

He had 300 pills and gave Baba 300 pills to test Baba. Karoli Baba put all 300 pills in his mouth and swallowed. Then he sat down and continued to do his work.  

Ramdas sat there with the hope that this man was about to die.

But Neem Karoli Baba did not show any effect of drugs. He kept working. His purpose was just to tell Ramdas that you are wasting his life on a useless thing.  This thing will not be of any use to you.

Ramdas was astonished to see this miracle. He was so impressed that he became a disciple of Neem Karoli Baba. He also wrote a book on Baba, named “Being Ram Dass” in which he mentioned this miracle.

Baba continued to travel all over India and he became famous by many names, some people called him as Talaiya Wala Baba, Handi Wala Baba, Miracle Baba, etc.

During his visit to all over India, Baba kept giving messages to his devotees, and during that time he performed many such miracles that his fame spread not only in India but the whole world.

There are so many such interesting miracle stories and I would like to share one such incident.

Traveling By Train

Once Baba was traveling by train and he did not have a train ticket. When TT came to check the ticket and asked Baba to show the ticket.

Baba smiled and said — I do not have a ticket.

TT then drops Baba off the train. Baba gets off the train and sits by the side of a pillar on the platform.

After that, the train is flagged to run, but the train does not proceed. Then many retries are made.

And some repairs are also done to its engine, but even then the train did not move forward.  This process had been going on for a long time.

After that, the TT remembered that the train is not moving since he has dropped this Baba off the train.

Then TT goes to Baba who was sitting on the platform and apologizes to Baba and asks Baba to sit on the train.

Baba told the TT that he can accept his request on a condition. And that condition is that from now onwards no one else such Sadhu or Baba, who is without a ticket, will not be dropped off the train.

The TT accepted this condition, and then Baba boarded on the train.

As soon as Baba received their seat on the train, the train starts moving. Since then that station has been named “Neem Karoli station” which is in Farukhabad district, UP.
