In V.S 1515 Bhadrapad Sudi Thursday 11th, Bhagwan Ramdevji Maharaj took Samadhi. This is when he delivered his last message and the 24 Farmaan (24 divine commands), to his devotees.
Bhagwan Ramdevji Maharaj said "Gatganga (Participants of this Communion are believed to be as pure as the Mother Ganges) listen to the following Twenty Four Divine Commands.
Always keep away from sin and pay particular attention to the way of your life: Be kind to all living creatures and feed the hungry ones.
Confess your sins to your Satguru and always be ready to help others. Remember that life is too short and you must think of what is right and wrong.
It does not suit a member of the Communion to get involved in gossip, jealousy or grudge. Accept the invitation to attend the Paat/Pooja with enthusiasm and attend to meditate in search of your soul.
You must submit to your Sadguru first to achieve knowledge and accomplish your goal. Have faith in the Almighty God, who will create goodness in you.
A person may look clean and wears saffron clothes, but if his mind is malicious or corrupt and there is no sparkle in his eyes and face, consider him to be a Nagura - a person without guidance of a Sadguru.
Service to humanity is service to God, make that to be your duty that is the teaching of Sanatan Dharma. Relinquish lust and attachment to the material world and follow the principles of Sanatan Dharma.
My followers are those who are polite, are kind, are honest of principle, and are living a moral life of high integrity.
Maat-pita guru seva karvi karvo atithi satkar Sva-dharmno pahelan vichaar karvo pachhi adarvo aachar.
Wake up early, wash and clean yourself and then do your prayers to the Lord with full concentration before tackling your daily tasks.
Sit on one comfortable position; chant the name of the Lord with clean heart. You will only recognise your soul when you have control over the ten senses of your body (five senses and five functional parts of your body).
Have no doubt in your heart and mind about your faith in the Almighty God, and avoid lust for the pleasures of life, pride and arrogance. To accept the death as the only truth (reality) is the true knowledge and the rest is superfluous attractions and/or attachments.
Cut your cloth according to your coat, avoid the greed of fame. Have no greed for the chairmanship and your miseries will come to an end.
Be pure in your thoughts with high moral values and act accordingly. Live a independent life with full faith in the Almighty God.
Be sympathetic towards the poor and always be ready to help the needy. I will always remember such devotees and they will remain close to my heart.
My true devotees are unselfish, impartial, honourable and believing in my words.
Those who spend their life for the cause of humanity and those who do not discriminate between colour, caste, creed or religion are worthy of my worship.
Those devotees who have complete faith in me are the ones who will recognise me in visible and invisible forms and are worthy of my trust.
Those who perform good deeds and are sincerely devoted to me are worthy of these Farmaans and entitled to my blessings.
Listen to all as an audience but follow my teachings. This will lead you to salvation. (Nirvana - a state where a soul is not reincarnated).
There are nine forms of Bhakti (devotion). Salute all the nine forms of Bhakti and the sincere devotees are those who accomplish and live up to these forms of devotion. They are the ones who would achieve Moksha or Nirvana.
Those persons who are anonymous donors without any hope or wish for return of a favour and are happy at all times would always remain dear and close to my heart.
I am the one who lives in the hearts of my devotees and I am the one who will take care of my devotees. I reincarnate in this universe in various different forms for the protection of Dharma (duty).
Ramdas has said, "Sant Jan (All Saints). Listen",
When Baba Ramdev was about to take Samadhi he had a Green Flag in one hand and held a Bhamar Bhalo (a spear named "Bhamar" because of the distinctive sound made when the spear was launched) in the other hand. He conveyed the Twenty Four Divine Commands to all his relations, friends, foes, well-wishers, followers and devotees. This was followed by his last words stated earlier in Samadhi of Ramapir. Baba Ramdev blessed all with the knowledge of devotion, through which one can achieve the status of Param-pad, Moksha or Nirvana.
