|"Ghat Ramayan " — a holy book and the most famous
book in the literature of Santmat has been authored by Sant Tulsi Sahab of Hathras
(a place in Uttar Pradesh, India). Sant Tulsi Sahab keeps an eminent position in the
Santmat Dynasty (of the recent era). Though there are many myths about the creation of
this holy book " Ghat Ramayan " and its author Sant Tulsi Sahab. Somebody
says, Sant Tulsi Das (author of Ramcharit Manas) was Tulsi Sahab in the previous
birth. At that time he had to hide the book " Ghat Ramayan " under the
social pressure of then priests, religious leaders and the public. And then Sant
Tulsi Sahab came in the form of Goswami Tulsi Das and he wrote a book Ramcharit
Manas to please the people, etc.
In order to the search of perfect Master by Maharshi Mehi during His ascetic life,
He met with many sages of that time and also came in the contact of His Master Sant
Baba Devi Sahab. He managed the copies of three books of Ghat Ramayan (published at
different times by different sources) — one published from Belvedere Press,
Allahabad, second the commentary work by Baba Devi Sahab on Ghat Ramayan
(Baba Devi Sahab selected some important hymns from then available book of Ghat
Ramayan and interpreted its meaning) and the third is the book available in the
Satsang Mandir of Hathras where Sant Tulsi Sahab was cremated. He (Maharshi Mehi)
deeply studied those books including Ramcharit Manas (creation of Goswami Tulsi Das)
, writings of many sants like Kabir Sahab, Guru Nanak Sahab, Sant Dariya Sahab
whoever has been described in those books of Ghat Ramayan. In the light of inner
wisdom, meditation practices and vast self study, Maharshi Mehi arrived at the
1. Sant Tulsi Sahab was Goswami Tulsi Das in the next birth can not be accepted.
In fact, both were not the same person.
2. Sant Tulsi Sahab was a perfect Sant (Sadguru) without any doubts.
A complete Sant or Sadguru hides his/her true realized knowledge merely under the
protest of religious leaders, priests – it can not be accepted anyway.
3. The so-called book " Ghat Ramayan " has been altered by some persons
for some unwanted advantages in the course of time. There are many such poems present
in " Ghat Ramayan " which can not be accepted as the creation of such great
Sant Tulsi Sahab.
So, it was utmost need to bring forward the real knowledge of the sayings of Sant Tulsi
Sahab. Since Santmat literature seems to be incomplete if we exclude Sant Tulsi Sahab
as almost most spiritual branches of Santmat in modern era have emerged from the one
trunk of Sant Tulsi Sahab.
In this effort, Sadguru Maharshi Mehi collected some most important, valuable and
reliable hymns of Sant Tulsi Sahab’s Ghat Ramayan and explained those poems
with meanings in His spiritual knowledge that He achieved. This great prestigious
work of Maharshi Mehi has been beautifully decorated in a very small book named
" Bhawarth Sahit Ghat Ramayan Ke Mukhya Aur Paramopayogi Vishay Ki Padaawali "
(Collection of the most important and useful poems of Ghat Ramayan with real meaning).
This book is in Bharati (so called Hindi, mother languge of India) language. In the
beginning of this holy book, Maharshi Mehi has presented proofs and references of
other books to prove His findings and conclusions. He has excellently analyzed the
facts and extracted the essence eliminating the multiple propagated myths in the very
similar way like bees sit many flowers, collects the juices and produce pure honey.
The complete preface (facts and analysis done by Maharshi Mehi to prove the truth about
Ghat Ramayan and Sant Tulsi Sahab) will be uploaded as soon as the translation work
reaches towards completion. Currently, I am presenting english translation of the hymns
from this book.
