Three previous births of Satprem
Satprem has described about his three previous births in a letter dated 29th June 1959 to The Mother, vide Mother’s Agenda , vol I.
In all the three births, he committed suicide, as his wife, too, committed suicide as he abandoned her. He was married to a very good woman, the same woman in all the births, but he was ‘wandering here and there in search of something.’ In all the three births, he came in contact with a monk who wanted to make Satprm his disciple, but he succeded in that only in the last previous birth! But still he committed suicide in that birth, too!
The Person, whom Satprem named X, who narrated him of these three births also told him that the present birth was his last birth.
Prior to his telling about these three previous births, Satprem had dreams which gave hints about the events in these births. But he did nor tell X about these dreams prior to his narration of these three births to him.
Saprem has described:
“I had said nothing to X about these various dreams before he told me the story of my last three existences: three times I committed suicide – the first by fire, the second by hanging, and the third by throwing myself into the void. During the first of these last three existences, I was married to a ‘very good’ woman, but for some reason I abandoned my wife ‘and I was wandering here and there in search of something.’ Then I met a sannyasi who wanted to make me his disciple, but I could not make up my mind, I was ‘neither this side nor that side,’ whereupon my wife came to me and pleaded with me to take her back. Apparently I rejected her – so she threw herself into the fire. Horror-stricken, I followed her, throwing myself into the fire in turn. That was when I created ‘a connection’ with certain beings [of the other worlds] and I fell under their power. For two other lives, under the influence of these beings, the same drama was repeated with a few variations.
“During the second of these last three existences, I was married to the same woman whom I again abandoned under the influence of the same monk, and I again remained between two worlds wandering here and there. Again my wife came to plead with me and again I pushed her away. She hung herself, and I hung myself in turn.
“During my last existence, the monk succeeded in making me a sannyasi, and when my wife came to plead with me, I told her, ‘Too late, now I am a sannyasi.’ So she threw herself into the void, and horror-stricken by the sudden revelation of all these dramas and of my wife’s goodness (for it seems she was a great soul), I threw myself in turn into the void.”
As we all know, Satprem and Sujata came in contact with The Mother who led them onwards spiritually and integrally!!
