The evolution of the soul is obstructed by ‘Mohniya Karma’.
Mohniya Karma obstructs the Samyaktava as well as “Samyak Charitra” (right conduct). Attachments and aversions invariably accompany ‘Charitra Moha’ the infatuating conduct. Freedom from worldly desires can’t be attained in the presence of ‘charitra moha’, and the soul is not capable of attaining sanctity without being free from worldly desires.
Even a little knowledge without moha is capable of attaining omniscience, but the “Moksha” (salvation) can not be attained without being free from worldly desires despite being well-versed in all the religious texts. The Moksha means complete erosion of the moha.
With the erosion of imoha’, the soul is separated from the deformations of attachments and aversions. Such a soul being pious and pure begins to sail in the world of enlightenment.
Having achieved this kind of purity by his soul, Achharya Mahamunivar Shanti Sagar Ji could foresee many mysteries hidden in the womb of future.
His speech had attained supernatural power, perfection and authenticity.
The incident is of 1947 when the chaturmas of Achharya Shri was going on in Solapur. One day the following words uttered out of his mouth involuntarily- “These Razakar people are committing great sins and crimes in the state of Hyderabad. Their atrocities are crossing the limit. This will now end in less than three days.”
These words of Achharya Shri proved true just after three ership of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Pátel (the then Home Minister) attacked the state of Hyderabad by initiating police action and the Hyderabad state bowed down in submission before the Government of India within three days.
Achharya Shri had uttered these words, referred above, in presence of Pandit Summer Chand Ji Diwakar. So, after this victory campaign, Pt. Diwakar Ji told Achharya Shri “Bhagwan! Your utterances regarding Hyderabad proved to be true.
Well, you remain aloof from political events then how could you guess that its existence was merely for few days?” Maharaj Shri said in a very simple way, “I spoke as my heart invoked me”. Words of the saint never fail.
In the same way, in January 1948, Achharya Shri, all of sudden mentioned to his disciples about an impulse in his heart that some terrible event would take place in the country in near future. And just after three to four days, Nathu Ram Godse committed the gruesome murder of Mahatma Gandhi.
Several similar incidents that were to occur in future used to reflect automati- I cally in the mind of Achharya Shri. ‘Shrut Gyan’ (the knowledge j of revelation) is very vast. It experiences the future on the screen ; of the present through knowledge of “Nimitta-Gyan ” (Ominous Science).
Such is the unimaginable power of penance that one attains the “Vachan-Siddhi” and “Bhav-Siddhi” (supernatural power of making correct statements and sentiments) from it.
