Was it a Helicopter crash or a miracle!
Helicopter crashes do take place and a number of such accidents took place in the past. But never before has it happened that the pilot loses control at a considerable height and the helicopter’s nose hit the ground after the crash landing; yet nobody gets injured. But this was what happened at Godhara (Gujarat) on 29th August and thousands witnessed the scene.
Pujya Bapuji was coming to Godhara for Purnima darshan and satsang programme from Morbi by a helicopter. Before landing, the helicopter lost balance, landed with a bang on its nose and crashed. It was broken into pieces but Bapuji who was sitting on the front seat, the pilot and other passengers remained unscathed. The people who witnessed the scene were surprised. The helicopter had been badly damaged; its strong iron body had been broken into pieces but all organs of Bapuji’s soft body were intact! If this isn’t a miracle of God what else can it be called?
Scientists know that white petrol that fuels copters is highly inflammable. A little spark touching it is sufficient to produce a devastating fire. Even the trees and plants are burnt down. After the accident, the white petrol flowed like water flows from a tap but no blast took place. The hind part of the helicopter had even caught fire but the fire was extinguished miraculously.
The crash produced such a bang that people from surrounding areas came running to the spot. But everybody saw Bapuji come out safe and sound. There was no need to measure his pulse or blood pressure. Soon Bapuji arrived at the satsang site and he was his usual blissful Self. Such a big thing had happened; yet Bapuji was dispensing joy in his natural style – the same humour, the same joyful dancing, and the same blissfulness. What else can this event be called if not a miracle? It is a tangible proof of the greatness of Self-Realized and Self –Reposed Brahmajnani saint.
Somebody says it is a miracle performed by a Brahmanishtha saint equal to an avatar; another says it is God’s divine lila. Some attribute it to yogic powers or greatness of Indian culture. All these different views point towards but one fact. The God-realized saint Bapuji has proved true his quote, “As China is known for the great wall; Kuwait for petroleum; America for dollar; India is known for saints of the Vedic culture having great divine powers.”
Today, people not only in India but all over the world are wonderstruck watching the images and video clips of this accident on Internet and TV Channels. Former President of India Shrimati Pratibha Patil while enquiring about Bapuji’s wellbeing on phone said that a number of high ranking Air Force Officers on being asked as to what could have been the reason of Bapuji coming safe and sound out of this terrible accident had replied unanimously that it must have been a miracle performed by Bapuji otherwise there was no question of people coming unscathed from such a horrible accident.
Immediately after the accident, different TV Channels described all passengers coming unscathed out of the accident as a miracle of Bapuji. Different newspapers described the accident as providential, unprecedented and miraculous.

This accident has made all celebrities,intellectuals, religious leaders of other faiths and sects and even atheists acknowledge the calibre of Pujya Bapuji. This accident is powerful enough to open the eyes of Bapuji’s detractors also. Pujya Bapuji says this is the miraculous power of the science of mantras, “So powerful are the Vedic mantras that one doing japa of them can ward off not only his own untimely death but also that of others with him. A regular reciting of the Guru-Gita saves one from untimely death and other dangers.
Describing the glory of Guru-Gita, Lord Shiva says: अकालमृत्युहंत्री य सर्वसंकटनाशिनी। ‘It wards off untimely death and all calamities.’”Many a time in the course of his satsang discourses, Bapuji has told that with japa of mantra so many times so and so house of one’s horoscope gets purified. With 80 million japa of the mantra, the house of death is purified. Such a person will not meet an untimely death.Today this accident is being discussednot only in India but all over the world and whoever comes to know of it becomes wonder-struck to see Sant Sri Asharamji Bapu’s yogic powers and greatness.
It is only due to Asharamji Bapu’s miraculous powers that we are safe and sound.- The pilot of the crashed helicopter
“What was the reason behind the crash landing of the helicopter will be known ter the probe is completed. It is only because
of Asharamji Bapu’s miraculous powers that we are safe and sound even after meeting such a terrible accident. With Bapuji’s blessings, nobody received even a bruise.”
We came out of the jaws of death hale and hearty due to the protective divine aura of Bapuji- Ashwin Yadav, a passenger of the helicopter, Rajkot
“In the past I met with motor-bike accidents two-three times. But at that time I was not as fearless as I was with Bapuji at this time meeting with a copter crash. It was such a terrible accident yet thanks to Bapuji’s divine aura, we came out of thejaws of death hale and hearty. I was not the least afraid. Earlier, I worshipped Bapuji’s physical form as my Guru but now I know that he is the Protector, and Preserver. He is the omnipresent Lord about whom Lord Krishna says in the Gita:
वासुदेवः सर्वमिति स महात्मा सुदुर्लभः।
‘Realizing that all this is Vasudeva (the innermost Self); such a great soul (Mahatma) is very hard to find.’
For me, it was coming face to face with God. - Naresh Manganaani, an eye witness “For me, everybody coming out unscathed from such a terrible accident is not less than seeing God in person.”
Now what other miracle do you want? - Shri Ashok Singhal Patron and Former International President of VHP
“Param Pujya Bapuji! Nonbelievers are carrying out a huge conspiracy against our saints. I can see that the allegations that are being levelled against saints are part of a conspiracy. The conspiracy has worked successfully in Gujarat and Tamilnadu, and other states are also meeting the same fate. Even otherwise, we easily fall prey to the conspiracy of foreign powers. Our people don’t see through their devious designs.Lack of firm belief in our religion makes them an easy prey. The kind of influence Pujya Bapuji has on the people is clearly visible here. Millions are mbibing the nectar of your satsang and thereby attaining peace and happiness.
But the tragic irony is that by declaring our country a secular state, we are labelled and recognized as atheists; that we have o religion. What a heinous effort to destroy our culture!” Condemning the miscreants who created obstacles in the planning of satsang programme and those who instead of curbing such miscreants harassed the organizers of the satsang programmes, Shri Ashok Singhal, the Patron and Former International President of VHP, the biggest and the most powerful Hindu rganisation said, “I am distressed mentally, extremely distressed! I want to ask if certain anti-social elements started creating disturbance in satsang, is it a problem in maintaining law and order? Is it appropriate to cancel permission given for Bapuji’s satsang at that place for that reason? Your Holiness! I am sad to see how much pain these people cause to you and to other saints misguided by the foreign conspirators!Nowhere, the life of our saints is safe. Hindus are not safe. There is nobody to protect them at present. In such circumstances, our hopes are centred on you Bapuji! Our saints alone have saved the country and the society. We have faith only in you. You alone will bring the change in the country.”
Pujya Bapuji said, “Considering what you have said and the oppression perpetrated against the society, we will have to chalk out a strategy with a spiritual orientation so that the might of our culture strengthens the ardent supporters of the cultural cause; and it makes the opponents of our culture aware of our saint-power. There are great many powers in our culture – yogic powers. We only need to get united, understand one another, and work unitedly in this direction. They want to destroy us. We should become equally stronger. The concern you have expressed today will perhaps make this day one of inspiration to work with the help of Divine Power to save the Hindu society from tyranny and from the conspiracy going on against it. No conspiracy can work against the Divine Power. Therefore, we should work in consonance with the Divine Power.” Inviting Bapuji to the Kumbha Festival to be held at Prayag (Allahabad) in January 2013 for playing a pivotal role in Hindu empowerment, Shri Ashok Singhal said: “Bapuji! The Maha Kumbha Mela is going to be held at Prayag. All spiritual and social organisations congregate on that occasion. We can make a plan of action with your grace. The miracle that took place in keeping you safe in that terrible helicopter crash has been witnessed by the whole world.” Warning the atheists, slanderers and anti-social elements, Shri Ashok Singhal asked, “What other miracle do you want to see? Now refrain from your dirty tricks.” Pujya Bapuji said, “Your intent is selfless; you want the good of people at large. Now it is not only your resolve; my resolve is joined to it and the resolve of millions of my devotees too is joined with your resolve today. Therefore, those auspicious days will come and most certainly come.
This is not less than a miracle - Shri Sushil Kumar Shinde Union Home Minister and Leader of the house in Lok Sabha
The helicopter Asharam Bapu and his followers were travelling in fell on the ground with a powerful impact after losing balance and crashed. It was broken into several pieces. Bapuji was sitting on the front seat. Yet Bapuji, pilot and all other co-passengers came out unscathed. I think it not less than a miracle. Bapuji’s dedication to the welfare of the masses is well known. I pray to God for Bapuji’s good health.
Pujya Bapuji is endowedwith Divine Power
- Senior BJP MP, Top BJP Leader and Former BJP President, Shri Rajnath Singh
“I bow my head and offer millions of salutations at the lotus feet of Param Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu. I know this truth that no party with all the resources at its command can organise even for a Chief Minister or a Prime Minister a gathering of the size I find here eager to get a glimpse of Pujya Bapuji. A gathering of this size can not be made to wait from 7 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. for any Chief Minister or Prime Minister. India is a Dharma oriented, spirituality oriented country. The all round development of man’s personality can not be brought about by material progress alone; spiritual development too is a must. The satsang discourses Pujya Bapuji is delivering throughout the country and abroad (through electronic means) usher man to that spiritual development. I bow my head at his feet once again and salute him from the core of my heart.
Pujya Bapuji met such a terrible accident yet he, his co-passengers and pilot were not hurt at all clearly indicates that the Supreme Lord is extremely kind to the believers of Indian culture. Our Pujya Bapuji has attained Divine Powers. It was the miraculous feat of the same power God has endowed him with. It was by virtue of that power that Bapuji and those accompanying him remained unscathed. I have never seen such an accident in my life. Whoever watched the news of this accident on TV was convinced that none of the passengers would have survived. But in a few moments everybody saw Param Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu, the centre of the faith of all of us, coming out with his co-passengers safe and sound. And today we see him before our eyes.”
This is the first miracle of this kind in the world
- Shri Maninderjeet Singh Bitta, President, All-India Anti-Terrorist Front
“Crores of people in this world have placed their faith in Asharamji Bapu. Ministers, Chief Ministers could not survive copter crashes. But Bapuji met such a terrible accident yet none sustained any injury. This is the first miracle of this kind in the world.
Those who created obstacles in Bapuji’s satsang and pained the heart of Bapuji and his devotees should now learn a lesson from this miracle of Bapuji. This is a Divine miracle, Bapuji’s miracle. My brothers, now refrain from hurting the feelings of a saint and his devotees. Now look to Bapuji who gives a new teaching, a new thought to the people, and you too march ahead in that direction.”
