In 1882, in the month of Magshar, Dungar Bhakta was permitted
to renounce home. With the blessings and good wishes from Dhoribhai
and his relatives, Dungar Bhakta left for Vadtal.
On arriving at Surat he prostrated before Vignananand Swami and
received his blessings. By the wish of Vignananand Swami, Dungar
Bhakta was enjoined in the services of the mandir. He also began
the study of scriptures from his guru.
