• I’m A True Representative Of God On Earth
Dan Akanji Ibrahim Akinbami is a prince of Ibadanland, capital of Oyo State. Born into a
Muslim family, in 1980, he was christened Sat Guru Maharaj Ji in England after receiving Divine knowledge by an English lady.
AJIBOLA ABAYOMI engaged the leader of One Love Family at his Spiritual Village, Ibadan, where he spoke on several issues concerning his faith and the Nigerian nation. Excerpts…
You have been in this mission for 30 years, can you recall your achievements?
My achievements are many. The unique one that has cut across all divides is the revelation of the true name of the creator which is Maharaj Ji. It is a surprise to everyone because it is new.
If the name Maharaj Ji is new, how do you come about it?
It’s new because you cannot find it in any encyclopedia. For devotees of Maharaj Ji that are honest, unique and special, it is a victory because the name was concealed in Sanskrit, the first language spoken by man on earth. There is power in that name. People call God and they still maltreat fellow being. But with Maharaj Ji, you cannot escape.
You claimed the name of the creator was recorded in the Sanskrit as against holy names like God, Allah and others people pray with, how do you defend that?
People are surprised about that because despite their prayers, fasting and sacrifices, Satan still has upper hand above them. Was God English? Ask yourself too? When did the English system and language evolve, ditto for Allah in Saudi language. Tell me, when those systems get started. The truth is that before all these systems, human beings have been existing. People should try the name Maharaj Ji and see may be it won’t work. All they need to do is to call it into a glass of water and the manifestation will come, instead of dying on the road, air and water, while seeking help at the hospital or elsewhere.
You were born into Muslim family, at what point did you switch your belief in Allah to MaharaJ ji?
I even went to a Christian school and I was christened Theophilus.
Both Christianity and Islam exist in theory, but Maharaj Ji is practical, because you can experience it from your heart either you an illiterate, blind, deaf or dump. Those books they called holy books are incitement of the intellects. You need to study and study beforeyou understand.
Some people said you call yourself god, how are you god?
I am not the type of god that people pray to yet they steal, kill, maim and fornicate. But when you talk of the god of love, harmony and instant effect, here I am. I am not god, but I am the god of peace, love and unity to be seen, touched and felt. I am not talking about an abstract God.
In other words, the unseen God and I are one, because definitely someone must represent His interest here on earth physically, dramatically, consciously and carefully.
One can describe and refer to the tenets of Christianity and Islam, how will you describe yours?
Foreign religions say God is up there, whereas I say Maharaj Ji is in everyone’s heart. Call on Maharaj Ji anywhere and it will answer you if your heart is pure. Religion, to tell you the truth, is like a political party. I have told you that the two prominent scriptures talk about when great masters like me came in the body of human. You don’t need books to know your father; the god-man is walking on the planet. Here he is now.
As a Master in this era, you live in a country where there is recession and you have been saying people need divine knowledge to be liberated from economic bondage, what is the way out, people are suffering?
First, as Living Perfect Master, I have proclaimed Ibadan, Nigeria as the new holy land. No need to go elsewhere for pilgrimage anymore.
Recession is self-induced out of ignorance of the power of the Almighty within us. If we know about that, people will not be feeble minded and greedy. It is because our leaders have exited from the founding policies of the nation. Many Nigerians lack divine knowledge. They are slaves of foreign currencies like the Dollar and Euro. What is it that the Oyonbo men are producing that we cannot?
How divine is the knowledge you are talking about and how can those who desire it get it?
Government goes and government comes. Master controls both the mind and the body. Nigerians should carry my photo and call Maharaj Ji anywhere and I will answer them. Talking about the divine knowledge, I am the Sat Guru, meaning the revealer of the light and king of kings.
The moment people experience me, I will reveal the inner light within their fore head that will continue to guide them to do everything. The creator has never left man. Until the people meet the true representative of the creator; they will never experience the divine knowledge.
The word Sat Guru originated from where?
It is also in the Sanskrit. The whites are selfish. They keep the book to themselves alone. That is where they get inspiration for all the inventions. I began this mission at the age of 33. The master before me was 23 when he told the whites in America at the University of Pennsylvania in 1976 that Dan Ibrahim will succeed him from Africa; from among the populous black nations. The whites don’t like that but the creator has decreed that the power must return to the base.
Where is the base? So if you go now, who succeeds you?
(Laughs) Go where? I am still here. A time will come a person among those who have received knowledge will be announced by me as the one to take over.
At 69, you are still a bachelor, vegetarian and detest alcohol, so those things are the secrets of your power, does it mean if you do any of them you will die?
(Laughs) My assignment in this era includes auditing of the human race to guarantee life. The drums of war are getting louder across the globe because of ignorance of divine knowledge by world leaders. I am to monitor the human race and lead them back to their creator through knowledge. Eating of either meat or fish reduces the strength of man. Holiness is godliness. People should be committed in knowledge and embrace red, the colour of love which is the colour of the human blood.
Before you go round auditing the globe, you are in Nigeria and our political system is being challenged in many areas, what is the way out?
I have told people severally that we missed it from the outset because the true name of God is Maharaj Ji. The political economy will not work if we miss our path. The best way to God is to embrace our traditional faiths where God dwells, rather than being slaves of the foreign religions. China doesn’t follow English ways. Today, the country is great.
I challenge the Federal Government to give me 20 engineers. I will give them divine knowledge and they will invent and produce wonderful things that will turn around the economy.
You were once arrested and detained for murder, ritual practice and other offences, how did you survive the allegations?
You should know that the whites and other religious leaders were threatened because I revealed the true name of God. The conspirators orchestrated those allegations. I was taking to the court. I was discharged and acquitted. My accusers jumped bail. They told the judge that some people told them I did those things. It was funny. The judge was angry that all the allegations were hearsays. Sophistical machines were brought to scan my spiritual village and nothing incriminating was found. At the end my accusers were disgraced. That is the end of the story.
Notable Nigerians do come to you under cover, what do you tell them about their attitude, particularly those in government?
I don’t force people to be what they are not. I used to give spiritual shoes, necklaces and rings to former President Ibrahim Babangida and late Sani Abacha when they were in power, apart from other people. But when they turned around to oppress the people, I backed out.
