Clad in spotless white Kameej-and-Pyjama, a waistcoat & a creamy shawl on shoulders, thin and lean in body, smart in gait, soft-yet-firm in speech, straight in walk and talk, Pujya Pitaji(Revered Father) is the cynosure of all eyes. People in general and devotees in particular, love him, adore him, nay spread their eyes at his holy feet. Men, women and children throng him wherever he goes. An agriculturist by profession, Pitaji has been leading a very simple life. He advocates that one should lead a life of simplicity, dignity and self-respect.

He further says , ‘It is the power of “RAM” Naam and “Guru-Kripa” (Glory of the Master) which attracts thousands of people to him .Whatever benefits they receive and whatever they see in him is the Glory of “RAM” Naam and of Swamiji Maharaj.’
