Pujya Jalaram Bapa, the renowned saint of Virpur, Gujarat, is the source of
inspiration to millions of devotees all around the world. For past several
years, devotees who held Jalaram Satsangs and Bhajans at their residences felt

Shree Jalaram Bapa was born in the year 1800 AD in the village Virpur, Gujarat.
His mother, Rajbai was very fond of serving sadhus and saints. No sadhu and
saint could go from Virpur without receiving the hospitality of Rajbai. Shree
Jalaram Bapa's father's name was Pradhan Thakkar, who was engaged in business.
At the tender age of 16, Jalaram Bapa married Virbai, daughter of Thakkar Pragji
Somaiya. Jalaram Bapa was however not inclined to live household life and to
continue to do business with his father. He is mostly engaged in serving sadhus
and saints. He separated himself from his father's business and stayed with his
uncle, Valjibhai, who was very fond of Jalaram.
It was obvious that Jalaram Bapa was inclined to completely withdraw from
marital life. Fortunately his wife, Virbaimaa decided to follow the path of
Jalaram. So, when Jalaram decided to go for a pilgrimage for holy places,
Virbaima followed him. At the age of 18, Jalaram Bapa accepted Shree Bhojalram
from Fatehpur as guru and was given a "Guru Malaa and Mantra" in the name of
