The Religion before the religions
(Ad Dharm)

The term Ad Dharm is grossly misinterpreted  by the society for self interests of a group of people or it is out of  ignorance. This word Ad Dharm has two component words such as "Ad" means the origin or "Creation" and "Dharm" means the belief. "Ad" leads us to understand the process of Creation by the Almighty God. Read the process of Creation as under:

Day one: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Day two: And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

Day three: Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.
Day four: And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

Day five: And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

Day six: And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
    26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
 27 So God created mankind in his own image,
   in the image of God he created them;
   male and female he created them.

God's purpose: God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.

Man appointed as Deputy of God:  Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Surely this is the most original point of faith which we may name as "Ad Dharm".
The section of people that believe in the Almighty God and His process of Creation in six days, creation of man in His own image, appointing the man the "Ruler" over the entire creation may be called by the believers of "Ad Dharm" means the belief before the religions of the world that man has invented. The believers of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other faiths with the same belief may be designated as the followers of Ad Dharm. The total population of believers of Ad Dharm may be not less than 75% of the World population.

In India, a seeker of truth named Babu Mangu Ram Mughowalia who came up from Ravidasia caste of Punjab (India) was in search of the true God. It is obvious that while he was in fellowship with Christian Missionaries, he should have learned a lot about the process of creation, fall of man into sin and the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
While touring the world he came to California and joined the people fighting for the liberation of the country from the British yoke. They were called GADDRIES
During his stay in California, though he joined the liberation front called GADDRI BABAS fighting for the independence of the country but he carried the inner pain of the sufferings untouchable people of India in the hands of upper castes. They had no ray of  hope for liberation even if country gets independence. He shared the said pain with other members of liberation group. Ultimately he returned back to India to work for the liberation of his own people.

He was an educated man, a school master and had studied the writings of Sri Guru Ravidas ji. He found the that the untouchable Saints of India had similar belief. He read Guru Ravidas ji again and again and found that Sri Guru Ravidas wrote his first worship song  that God created man in His own image, man fell into sin and God sent the Redeemer for saving the falling man.

Read in Hindi :
Tohi Mohi, Mohi Tohi Anter Kaisa
Kanak Katak Jal Tarang Jaisa.

Means God I find no difference in Thee and me. It is like the relationship between ornament and Gold or water and wave. He expressed that he was (man) in the image of God. Bible says God made man in His own image.

Jao Pe Ham Na Pap Karanta, Ahe Annanta
Patit Pawan Nam Kaise Hunta.

Had I (man) not fallen into sin how Thou would have become Redeemer. This he spoke of coming of Jesus for redemption of fallen man into sin
He read that the total writings of Sri Guru Ravidas ji is the preaching of Christian faith.
Sri Guru Ravidas ji closed his worship songs with the Gospel message as:

Hari So Heera Chhdake Karenh Aan Ki Ass
Te Nar Dizakh Jainge Sat Bhakhe Ravidas.

Means whosoever keeps hopes in anyone other than Hari (Redeemer) will surely fall into hell.

Here the dictionary meaning of Hari is the person who steals away something. In this context it is for Jesus who stole away the sins, pains and infirmities of fallen human race.

Since Babu Mangu Ram was enlightened through the process of creation at the origin, he based new faith with title "Ad Dharm". During his life time he got it registered with the Government of India and also it came up as a recognized religion in the country.
Since Babu Mangu Ram and his followers had their roots in Ravidasia community (untouchable community) so it became the religion of untouchables.

The Brahminical forces ate it away and it finally vanished from Indian soil.

I just want to invite all the people of untouchable communities to revive it. It does not bring hate to you but an honor. You are in among 75% of the population of the world who believe in Ad Dharm (The Religion before religions)
