Shri Mohanpriyacharyaji,
Kalimpong, India

 

mohanpriyacharyaShri Mohan Priyacharya ji was born in a Kaundiya brahmin family on 7th March, 1955. His father’s name was Shri Mankidas Sapkota and his mother’s name was Smt. Vishnumaya ji. They were both Pranami’s and were devotees of Guruji Mangaldas ji Maharaj. At the age of One, when children are learning to walk properly, ‘Mohan priya’ was bestowed the diksha mantra by Guruji Mangaldas. As he grew up into a boy, his interest in spirituality grew. The result was, at the age of 16, after passing his madhyamik board exams, he left his home forever to come to his Guruji, Shri Mangaldas ji, in Kalimpong. Guruji Mangaldas ji encouraged ‘Mohan’ to finish his graduation, which he did with flying colours. Staying with Guruji, he had an opportunity to know more about religion and he became conversant with Vani, Bitak, Gita and Shri Mad Bhagwad. In the year 1975, at the age of 20, he gave his first month long discourse on Bitak sahib in Kalimpong. Staying in Delhi, he had an opportunity to study Hindi. Smt. Vimla Mehta, who is the founder of Shri Prannath Mission, encouraged him to take up research on Vani and help in Pranami publications.

 

Staying with his Guruji, he had opportunities to travel across the length and breadth of India, Bhutan as well as Nepal on Spiritual journeys. This also enabled him to record the teachings and messages given by Guruji, which are now compiled in form of a book. ‘Mangal Sukti’, as the book is called, is a must read for the people who are looking to tread the path of spirituality, irrespective of the religion one follows.

 

In the year 1982, he became the secretary of Shri Krishna Pranami Dharma Sabha, Kalimpong and in 1984, he became the secretary of Guruji Pranami Mission Trust.

 

On 1st of May, 1985, when Guruji Mangaldasji, retreated back to his roots in Paramdham, Mohan Priyacharyaji took over the charge of the temple and the school established by Guruji. The unfinished task left by Guruji fell on his strong shoulders, which he carried on with jest and vigor and he saw through the completion of each of them. He devoted himself to the task of completing "Mangaldham" in the memory of Guruji Mangal Das ji.

 

The year of 1989 saw him touring the world. Lighting the torch of Shri Krishna Pranami Dharma across the globe and instilling the character of Hinduism in people far and wide across the globe, he traveled to countries like UK, USA, Canada, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Japan, Singapore, UAE and many more. As a result of his efforts, Shri Prannath Jayanti was celebrated in USA for the first time in a big way and has become a yearly event in other parts of the world too.

 

He is soft spoken, cheerful, simple minded and a good orator. His discourses on Mahamati Prannath Vani and Bhagwad Gita are full of pith and have attracted many followers where ever he’s visited. In Kalimpong, where, every year, in the months of July/august, he gives discourses on Bitak Sahib and Shri Tartam Vani, hundreds of people come to listen to the spiritual message imparted by him. His discourses depict the depth of his knowledge and experience that he has accumulated over the years as a saint.

 

He is a saint, who has lived up to the ideals imparted to him by his Guruji, and is an example to his followers. He is ever ready to show the way to anyone who lacks direction and instills in everyone, a sense of motivation, so that they can follow the path which builds character and enlightens the society as a whole. In short, he is also helping in building a better society which will show the path to the future generations.

 

Apart from Kalimpong, he is also attached to various other Pranami organizations across the world and is constantly serving the society through them in various forms. His aim is to spread the message of "Mahamati Prannath ji" across the globe and keep alive ideals imparted and the services rendered by his Guruji "Shri 108 Mangaldas ji Maharaj". In 1996, he traveled across the world once again to commemorate the birthday of his Guruji. In 1997, in collaboration with Maharaj Shri Sadanandji, a scholarship, under the name of ´Mangal Puruskar´ was set up. This scholarship is awarded to the people excelling in the field of education, social service and research. Motivated by his spiritual discourses, many young men and women have become spiritual aspirants and have dedicated their lives solely towards this cause. Currently, there are more than 50 preachers working under him spreading the message of Mahamati Prannath ji. Apart from being a good orator, he´s also an excellent author. His works have been printed as a part of many books. His articles find their way in publications like ´Jagani´ and ´Raj Vidya´. He is also the director of "Shri Prannath Mission, Delhi" which looks after the Pranami publications. He is also the vice-president of "Shri Krishna Pranam Vishwa Parishad" and the publisher of monthly publications, "Pranami Vishwa and Raj Vidya".

 

He’s also imparted discourses on Mahamati Prannath in the presence of ex-president of India, Shri Shankar Dayal Sharma, ex-prime minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee as well as the king of Nepal, King Gyanendra.

 

In short, he has led a life which his Guruji would have been proud of and has always led by example. His efforts have made the society a better place to live in. His spirituality and social service is an inspirer to many young minds and many aspirants have been motivated to follow a path, which leads to liberation.
