|Baba Lokenath Brahmachari||Mother Kamaladevi Ghosha & child Lokenath|
Baba Lokenath was an incarnation of Lord Shiva. In Bhavagad Gita, Lord Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead said to Arjuna, “When the Dharma is in jeopardy, I will come as an avatar and protect my devotees and The Dharma.” As being the devotee of Lord Shiva, Baba Lokenath Brahmachari came to this heavenly world to save The Dharma. After decades of meditation in Himalayas, Baba Lokenath has able to see God Himself. Baba Lokenath was alive for 160 years, almost all of his life meditating at the foothills of the cold Himalayas.
Currently, at West Bengal, District 24 Pargan’S’ , in a small town village, called Chaurasi Chakla (in present-day West Bengal) , at a Brahmin family, Maha Yogi Baba Lokenath was born as the fourth son of Sri Ramnarayn Ghoshal and Kamaladevi. Father Ramnarayan wanted from four sons that one of his sons will become a service of the Almighty. Then he chose from four of his sons, Baba Lokenath, the youngest of all four, to become a Brahmagaini. Because, Father Ramnarayan knew that if someone in the generation becomes a Maha Rishi, everyone who was born in that generation always go to Heaven. So, the child Baba Lokenath was the chosen one to become a Maha Rishi Brahmagani. As the father’s wish, Ramnaryan also wanted that Baba Lokenath becomes a Maha Rishi, after he gets his Brahmato, he becomes a service of the Almighty, with his childhood best friend, Bendimadhav and with his spiritual master, Bhagavan Ganguly. After leaving everything behind, Child Lokenath and Bendimadhav with spiritual master, Bhagavan Ganguly, went on many pilgrimages in India, then went to the Main Hindu Temple, called Kalighat, the temple of Goddess Maha Kali. When traveling at the Hindu Temples in India, Child Lokenath and Bendimadhav were very curious of Rishi, and were playing and joking about them. After listening and tolerating of this kind of curiousity, the Rishis were complaining to the Spirtual Master of Baba Lokenath and Bendimadhv, Bhagavan Ganguly about this tolerance. Then Bhagavan Ganguly told the Rishis that “What goes around comes around. When someone makes fun of someone, the person who made fun of that person will also be made fun of. And also if you make someone happy, you will be also happy too. My spiritual students will also become like us, Rishis, and become great devotees of God Himself.”
After visiting all of the Hindu Temples in India, The Spiritual Master Bhagavan Ganguly, and students Baba Lokenath and Bendimadhav went on meditating at the coldest area on Earth, The Himalayas. Bhagavan Ganguly treated Baba Lokenath and Bendimadhav as a mother will treat to her son. Bhagavan Ganguly asked for alms in the nearby villages of the foothills of the Himalayas. Then he would cook for them, and fed Baba Lokenath and Bendimadhav. Then one day, Baba Lokenath asked Bhagavan Ganguly that to learn about the Vedic wisdom. The answer from Bhagavan Ganugly was “Day by day, the wisdom I have will go inside in both of you students, and both of you will know what the Vedic Wisdoms is.” Then both of students went on long hard Brahmagani. Then Bhagavan Ganguly gave them their food, and slowly both of them get their food once a month, once a year, and so on. And this was the way that Bhagavan Ganguly taught them to meditate. Bhagavan Ganguly told them not to move their body, or else they will feel hungrier. Baba Lokenath was okay with this, but Bendimadhav couldn’t. Baba Lokenath made rice-milk with using his hip as the stove, and offered it to Bhagavan Ganguly, when Lokenath was doing his Brahmagani Exam.
Then Bhagavan Ganguly taught both of the students about meditating in a humid area. The Hot “Jog” was the Moon and the Sun together. When Baba Lokenath went on meditating, he did not know if it is summer or winter. Bhagavan Ganguly was also shocked by how Lokenath meditated. Then Lokenath was crying and holding the feet of Bhagavan Ganguly, and saying that “O Spiritual Master, I have become a Brahmagani, but you didn’t, and you are my Guru.”
Long time later, Baba Lokenath finished his meditations, and went to eastern part of India, and settled at a small town village called Barodi, lived at Dangu Kormokar’s house. Dangu Kormokar was a poor family, and then after Baba Lokenath lived with them, the family changed and become rich. When Baba Lokenath was new to the village, he was taunted by the villagers. When the villagers found out Baba Lokenath’s superiority, they become Baba Lokenath’s devotees. From this on, Baba Lokenath’s name went all over India. At the 19th day of Jyestha, 1297(June 3, 1890) at 11:45AM, at age 160, Baba Lokenath died. Before he died, he said “I am eternal, I am deathless. After this body falls, do not think that everything will come to an end. I will live in the hearts of all living beings in my subtle astral form. Whoever will seek my refuge, will always receive my grace.”
Baba Lokenath said to his devotees “Whenever your are in danger, whether in war, forest, ocean or jungle, remember Me. I shall save you.”
In the modern days, more than millions of Bengalis of both sides are great devotees of this Maha Yogi Baba Lokenath.
JOY BABA LOKENATH!
