had great devotion for his guru Bhagatji Maharaj. He had now one
desire: Pragji Bhakta, who had been turned out of the temple of
Junagadh without any fault of his after being branded as vimukh
(non-conformist), should be accorded a most cordial reception
in the same temple. He thought that he could be considered a true
disciple of his guru, only if he was able to bring him back to
this temple with great fanfare and honour. He, therefore, requested
Acharya Maharaj to send for Pragji Bhakta on the festival of the
Janmashtami congregation. Acharya Maharaj acceded to his request
and wrote a letter directing Pragji Bhakta to come to Junagadh.
As soon as this letter was despatched, Yagnapurushdasji gave this
news to all the haribhaktas devoted to Bhagatji Maharaj.
Jeebhai Kothari of Junadh had been already told of the great eminence
of Pragji Bhakta by Yagnapurushdasji. He, therefore, made arrangements
by which Pragji Bhakta would be honoured along with Acharya Maharaj,
and Pragji Bhakta would be provided with the same facilities as
would be extended to Acharya Maharaj. The person behind these
arrangements was no doubt Yagnapurushdasji himself.
It was in Samvat year 1921 that Bhagatji Maharaj had to leave
the temple at the behest of Acharya Maharaj. And now, at the behest
of Acharya Maharaj himself he was to return. A decorated coach
driven by two horses was brought for Acharya Maharaj. A similar
coach was brought for Bhagatji Maharaj also. Besides a bedstead,
silk mattresses, etc., were also provided for Bhagatji Maharaj.
He, too, was given a rousing reception along with Acharya Maharaj.
Many devotees from Gujarat had come to Junagadh during the presence
of Bhagatji Maharaj. Bhagatji Maharaj gave at this congregation,
discourses surcharged with Gunatit-jnana (supreme knowledge instilled
by Gunatitanand Swami). Many discourses were given at the seat
of Jaga Bhakta also. Bhagatji Maharaj rendered experience of divine
bliss to all the devotees by his discourses.
