Maharshi Mehi Das
« on: October 17, 2010, 03:54:06 PM »
 Dear Devotees,

 Modern districts of Munger, Bhagalpur and adjoining districts constituted the ancient Kingdom of the Aung
 Pradesha of the King Karna of the Mahabharata.His capital was situated where there is today located
 the modern city of Munger on the Bank of the sacred river , the Ganges. Vestige and remains of his castle and
 attached buildings have been excavated and are protected by the Archeological Dept.

 There was approximately a 50 K.M.  long, deep and secret tunnel, much below the bed of the sacred river, connecting the cities of
 Munger and Bhagalpur in Bihar. To our wonder, this tunnel still exists, though in dilapidated and ruined condition.
 King Karna utilised this secret tunnel to rule over his kingdom.

 Maharshi Mehi Das attained Self-realisation meditating in this dark tunnel for several years. His Ashram is
 located where the tunnel emerges out or exits on the left bank of the Ganges in the city of Bhagalpur in Bihar.
 Maharshi lived in the late twentieth century and attained Maha nirvana  in eighties of the last century.He was 
 a famous sage of the eastern India. He has a very popular following in the eastern Bihar in particular and in the
 states of Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Orrisa etc. in general.

 I am not much aware about His Teaching but on the main gate of His Ashram are inscribed following 
 Sentences in Hindi :

 " That which jivas witness or experience ( Hindi word is darshan in verb form ), having severred identification
    with the 'jada tattva' and turned away from it, is called 'Ish Darshan'.
                                       ( Translation is my own. Please bear with it if there is any inaccuracy. )

 Dear Devotees,

 I am sorry. Actually, the tunnel of the King Karna emerges on the right bank of the sacred
 river, the Ganges. The cities of Patna, Munger as well as Bhagalpur, are located on the
 right bank of the sacred river, the Ganges. The cities of Munger and Bhagalpur are located
 about 175 K.M. and 225 K.M. respectively from the city of Patna, the capital of Bihar.

                                                             Thank you.
