Das Dharam – Das means the servant of humanity and Dharam means the path of God.
16th February 1980 was the day when a total solar eclipse occurred, and according to Indian tradition people believed in all sorts of negative effects of an eclipse, everything from bad omens to blindness. People would not come out of their homes during a solar eclipse. However, Mahraz Ji gathered all his followers in the sweltering heat on that afternoon, during the middle of the eclipse out in the open he gave his blessing that no harm would come to anyone who was present. This is how Mahraz Ji announced the founding of a new faith ‘Das Dharam’ (Service to Humanity). From there on Mahraz Ji established the rules and practices of Das Dharam.
