Shri Swami Samarth manifested as a eight year old boy about 873 years ago at Chelikheda near Hastinapur (Uttar Pradesh, India).
He plunged into mahasamadhi in 1878, yet He has been granting His darshan to His devotees even today.
He is the uncreated Creator, the One without second. Words are powerless to describe His prowess.
He is revered as the teacher of all spiritual teachers (gurunam guruh). He is a direct incarnation of Supreme Consciousness or Para Brahman.
Shri Swami Samarth has adorned a human garment merely to grant benedictions and blessings on all who come in contact with Him. He is measureless compassion and limitless ananda (bliss). He radiates unalloyed love and His heart melts at the faintest trace of unconditional devotion for God. Shri Swami Samarth can instantly grant incessant supreme divine joy on whomever He chooses.
His assurance, "Fear not, I am always with you!!"
He says, "Surrender your ego and offer your unconditional love and I will fill you with immortal bliss".
His simple philosophy, "Harm no one, joy to every one. Inside every one, I am the only One!!"
