1. Birth and Prophecy

Jinabhai, or Jina, the future Yogiji Maharaj, was born at Dhari, Amreli district, on the twelveth day of the dark half of Vaishakh, Vikram Samvat 1948 (21 May, 1892) to Devchandbhai and Puribai.
His mother would take him to the cotton fields where she worked as a picker. He would play quietly, sucking his toe, unlike other children who used to cry often. The farm owner remarked, "Jina is a miracle child. Look, he always sucks his toe, just as Shri Krishna did. Puribai, one day everybody will fall at his feet and worship him."
