First Meeting between Swami Jnanjivandas and Shastriji Maharaj
Out of their zeal and conviction
for the Akshar Purushottam philosophy, sadhus from Junagadh, namely,
Vignandasji, Jnanjivandasji (Yogiji Maharaj), Bhagwatswarupdasji
and Balmukunddasji left the fellowship and arrived at the home
of Krishnaji Ada in Rajkot. It was here that they first met and
joined the mission of Shastriji Maharaj.
The construction of the mandir in Sarangpur began. Swamishri travelled
intermittently to villages, spreading the creed of Akshar Purushottam,
and returned to motivate the construction work.
Shri Krishnaji Ada passed away. Swamishri visited Rajkot to mourn
his death and then travelled to Mahuva for darshan of Pragji Bhakta's
For the upkeep of the mandirs thousands of acres of land was purchased
in the Kheda district, Gujarat. Discourses and festivals were
celebrated by Swamishri at Bochasan, Gana, Nadiad and Sayajipura.
