He was a redeemer, a savior, the infinite – His Divine power knew no bounds. There are many detailed accounts of the benevolence he bestowed upon the deprived and those who sought repentance for their misdeeds. Sinners would come seeking forgiveness of their immorality and he would bless them in reward for their acts of contrition. He possessed the power to bless infertile mothers with child. He would give sight to the blind. He had control of his senses. At one point in his life, he chose to live without food and sustained himself with only water. The aura of his Divinity was known far and wide. As the saying goes:

“Thou canst hold the Sun behind thy palm!

Nor canst thou confine the perfume of royal Roses.

The day must dawn tearing the curtains of darkness. And, the torrent must flow blasting the heart of rocks.”

In 1925 he prophesied that a Ficus tree in Sihri, Dhola would one day save many lives in India, and it came to pass in 1947 when hundreds of people in the town were spared from the unrest and sought shelter under the tree during the time India was being partitioned. The Holy Saint was full of compassion for mankind and the look of eternal serenity was reflected on His visage. He used his Sacred Powers to bless and assist those in need. Although he chose a minimalistic life, he would often bless others with good fortune. His spiritual transcendence could never be articulated in words. He was known to revive the dead with His Holy command. The Holy Saint loved everyone equally regardless of their religion, status, color, or creed. People of all walks of life and various faiths have followed The Saint and received the blessings of his benevolence.

The Saint wrote many scriptures in Persian and Urdu.

He advocated and encouraged everyone to free one’s soul from all evils – falsehood, greed, and deceit. He sermonized his followers to renounce the ego, narcissistic desires, anger, greed, and lust in order to find solace and be at peace with oneself. He emphasized that life must be lived with truthfulness, fidelity, and self-control of one’s own desires to embrace the eternal bliss.

“Man is blessed with happiness when he has dedicated himself with heart and soul at the Holy Lotus feet of his Spiritual Master and serves HIM with selfless devotion”

HIS incantatory words reverberated in the ears of all His followers in pursuit to feel the afflatus with the DIVINE.

The Holy Saint departed from earthly life and returned to heavenly abode in the year 1940. He handed the reigns of his Divine energy to his successor – His Holiness Kundan Lal Ji who traversed from Gujranwale to the city of Hathras, India. In 1961, the Holy Shrine was constructed in honor of the Holy Saint as a place where His devotees could meditate and follow Him in word and deed. Each day, the shrine of The Saint is adorned with a floral dedication – an incredibly beautiful and elaborate display of faith.  The belief and faith in the Divinity of the Holy Saint has descended from one generation to the next and will continue for generations to come. His illumined radiant soul is observed and adored by millions of His followers around the world.
