His grace showered upon all fortunate souls who came in touch with him, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, country. The vast mission he established has hundreds of branches in many states of India and nations of the world. His charitable activities include establishment of numerous free hospitals, schools, colleges, and service projecs for the poor and needy.
His mortal remains will be placed at Bhakti Bhawan, Shree Bhakti Dham, Mangarh for the antim darshan by devotees and spiritual sadhaks from 8 am to 7 pm.
