History would decide for itself. If Truth had to triumph, Shri Nathji’s divinity would be made known to the whole world one day.
As Shri Nathji often said:
A seed must perish in the ground before it blossoms forth as a tree.
“Truth crushed into the earth shall rise again.
“It always takes a long time for Truth to spread. One genuine seed sown into the earth is better than hundreds of roasted seeds, which will never grow. I never place emphasis on numbers. Even one genuine believer is enough.
Very few people could understand the divinity of Rama and Krishna when they walked on the earth. It is possible that there were others in that era who also called themselves avatars. But only the real avatars survived the pages of history. The real avatar of this age had to be accepted by the world sooner or later.
Shri Nathji had frequently said in Persian:
Pas az man shere man khaanando mi goyando daryaa band
Jahaane raa digar ghun kard yak marde khud aagaahe.
After I am gone, they shall read my Verse and remember me amongst them,
As the being who knew of himself, and who changed the world and left
The time would, indeed, come when the world would remember the being who came into their midst carrying salvation within himself, and who changed the world and left.
At Meerut, in 1957, Shri Nathji had enjoyed the anonymity of living in the club, but his name was known so far and wide that the moment anyone heard of it, he was instantly drawn to him. Shri Nathji would meet all and sundry in the club. He would speak to the army officers there, as well as the management and the waiters, all of whom developed a great respect for him.
And it was thus that Shri Nathji, Mateshwari and the boys passed a very pleasant winter holiday at the Wheler Club Meerut.
Shri Nathji paid the bill and embraced the manager in a gesture of love. He bade farewell to the club. He knew he would never be returning to it again. It was March 1957, and Shri Nathji made his way back to Mussoorie in the large and unwieldy Ford.
Once again there was the sight of Shri Nathji travelling on the Grand Trunk Road from Meerut to Dehra Dun till the time it joined the hill road, which led to the mountains of Mussoorie.
