Sadguru Shri Hambir Baba (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Unicode data' not found.) (born Ganpat Nanaji Hambir, 1879, Patethan village, Daund taluk, Pune district - died 14 October 1970, Patethan) was an Indian spiritual guide. He was a proponent of the Vedanta scriptures. He taught that the teachings of the saints can be practiced in one's personal life, in one's social life and for self-realization and social harmony.

Spiritual heritage[edit | edit source]

Baba spoke from the teachings of Richas, Shlokas, Ovees and Abhangas and was a follower of Lord Ram, Shri Krishna, other gods, their incarnations and other saints.

Early life and education[edit | edit source]

Baba was born in 1879 in Patethan village. In his spiritual education, he walked through India (for 12 years), practiced yoga-sadhana and acknowledged his vocation through callings from a religious man, "You will realize God in your own house" and from Saint Tukaram in one of his Abhangas, "God appears in your body which is His abode." Baba's teacher was Sadguru Shri Dhondinath Baba. Given Baba's origin in the village, Patetahan is known as a Dnyaneshwari, a holy centre for Sadhakas and an informal school for swadharma.

Teaching and practise of swadharma[edit | edit source]

Baba's life long spiritual mission (avatar-karya), was to teach swadharma. He used the Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavata Purana texts in his uplifting sermons and discussions and in 1958, the Vishwavyapi Manavdharma ashram was founded.[2]

Conferences[edit | edit source]

Baba spoke at the World Religions Conferences in New Delhi in 1958, 1965 and 1967 about swadharma and peace.

Jeevankalechee sadhana[edit | edit source]

Baba wrote a book in Marathi entitled Jeevankalechee sadhana.[2] It has eight editions, has sold 20,000 copies and has been translated into Hindi and English as Swadharma: the art of life.

Sanmarga darshana[edit | edit source]

Baba taught about siddhi (spiritual power) and riddhi (prosperity).

Namamrit[edit | edit source]

Some report healings by Baba through the elixer of the name of the god (Nectar of Nam) from diseases such as tuberculosis, diabetes and leprosy. Baba indicated the Abhanga couplet,

"Happy shall I make the whole life of mine, The three worlds, with bliss, shall I fill in."

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Baba expressed his wish to be close to his god: "I yearn to go to my home!". He died in Patethan on a full moon day called kojagiri pournima.

Successor[edit | edit source]

Baba's successor was his son, Parampujya Sadguru Samartha Shri Sumantrao Hambir, (Hambirbapu) who became principal of the school in Patethan.[2] The ashram has a meditation hall, a meeting hall and a shrine to Baba. Hambirbapu teaches twenty to twenty-five days of the month in other locations in Maharashtra state.
