Today, the 15th of Ramadan, marks the advent of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi. Every year, this auspicious day is celebrated with spiritual zeal and fervour by disciples all over the world. Happy Jashan-e-Shahi!
An excerpt from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi on the reasons why Jashan-e-Shahi is celebrated:
'On the 15th of Ramadan 1977, a series of unique secretive conversations (Ilhaamat or inspiration) with God also began. The promise of Radhiya Mardhiya ("Your will is my will, my will is your will") took place and rank was also granted. Since every rank (martaba) and ascension (meraaj) is related to the 15th of Ramadan, this is why, in order to express feelings of happiness and thanksgiving, Jashan-e-Shahi is celebrated every year.'
