Even as all the devotees left Savitri Nivas after the 7th of October 2004, there was Shrirang, the son of Raju Urhekar who resolutely refused to go. He wept so much at the thought of leaving Savitri Nivas that Ujwala Devi and Priya Nath had no alternative except to give him permission to stay.
It was in November 2004 that Dilip Sardeshmukh arrived with his wife and children from Bhusawal. The entire family, and especially the children, Srinath and Adinath, were restless for the “You are the wealthiest people in the world because you have with youselves Him, who is the Giver of wealth to the world!”Later Priya Nath took Dilip and his family to Lal Tibba at Mussoorie which was a famous tourist spot at a great height. He pointed out the residence of Shri S.K. Nagpal, an advocate who used to live there in the 1980’s. He reminded Dilip of the days of 1980 when the forces of evil were attacking Shri Nathji at Mussoorie and how the battle had to be fought in the courts. “Sab aap hee na karvaa liyaa! Ham logon men kahaan himmat thhee! “It was all due to your divine grace. We possessed no strength at all!”Shri Nathji had often said: “Time “Time passes away, but what you have done in that time, remains with you!”Later, after Dilip and his family had returned to Bhusawal a letter came from Dilip’s wife in which she said:“The blessings that we received at Mussoorie have sustained us. Dilip was hit by a rickshaw on the road and could have sustained serious injuries or even collapsed, but Thy Blessings were with us. Miraculous Help came and he was saved. Many thanks for thy kindness and benevolence.”Indeed, Shri Nathji had often narrated how Justice Rangilal saw a total stranger come and help him when he had fallen seriously ill in Europe. The total stranger was none other than Shri Nathji. He had to appear in numerous guises and numerous faces to save His devotees all the time wherever they were.
On the 12th of December 2004 there was the sight of Priya Nath sitting in the verandah of Savitri Nivas, in the midst of the Shorey Family, celebrating the birthday of Schweta, their daughter, whom they had brought for his blessings to Mussoorie. “Phir bahaar aayi chaman men Iqbal ghazal-khwaan ho“Spring has come again into the garden, O Iqbal, it is time now to sing,Indeed, it was after many years that Priya Nath was composing music. It was a verse that Priya Nath had taken from Shri Nathji’s historic book: “
Shri Shorey who had always been very selective about bringing people to the Nath “Prabhuji, the colour of devotion that you have placed upon me will never fade away. Shoreyji and I have become one on the path of devotion – and shall always remain one!” It was a moment of great happiness for Shri Shorey who saw in this sudden transformation of his friend a great victory of Shri Nathji’s Divine Power – which was drawing all genuine souls to itself.
It was in December 2004 that the weather had cleared up sufficiently for Priya Nath to go out of the house for long walks. He would be accompanied by Ujwala Devi as well as Manoj Narsikar and Shrirang. These were historic and eventful walks around Camel’s Back Road, the Mall Road, and Spring Road as well as the road leading down to Hampton Court School, – during which Priya Nath recounted the events of the past, and spoke non-stop for hours.“When you speak to us at home and laugh and joke, you are completely different, but when you speak to the devotees who come to you, your face and voice change and you become surcharged with divine power!‘When a warrior is at home, his children jump all over him, his wife quarrels with him, but when he is on the battlefield, all at once his countenance changes and his actions are surcharged with power!Later Shrirang began recording these historical events of Mussoorie in a diary of his own–in much the same way as Priya Nath had recorded diaries during the days of Shri Nathji.“I remember how, in the Mahagranth, it is written that Bhutt Sahib wrote to his son, Jagdish, who was living with Shri Nathji at the time in 1943: ‘If you are living there to serve Shri Nathji, then go on staying there, but if you are living there only to enjoy Mussoorie, then come back at once!’”Raju had never read a book in English in his entire life. When he was faced with the task of reading the Mahagranth in English, for a while he was afraid. But then a sudden strength surged into him and he found himself reading more and more of the Mahagranth until he could no longer leave it.
On June 23, 1997, it was Shri Nathji’s 95th Birth Anniversary. Priya Nath thought with some sadness that had Shri Nathji been present in the world He would have been 95 years old and living with Priya Nath in Gurgaon. But then, perhaps He would have put more of the world’s sufferings upon Himself. No, no, HIS WILL was paramount, and what he had willed was the best.“Ye mat samjhiye ke Shri Nathji khaamosh hain! Ye mat samajhiye ke ye tasveeren khaamosh hain!“Do not think Shri Nathji is silent. Do not think that these portraits are silent.AT THAT VERY MOMENT A SUDDEN SMILE APPEARED ON THE PORTRAITS OF SHRI NATHJI IN THE AUDITORIUM.Priya Nath suddenly found himself reciting a verse of Shri Nathji he had never recited before or even memorized:“Mere arfaan kaa takaazaa hai ke main aazaad hoon,“It is the Knowledge of my Realisation that I am free–Shri Nathji, as the Universal Soul, was ever free from the bondage of life and death. But He had always said:“I cannot be content in my own Freedom for as long as even one human soul is in bondage.”The entire audience was taken to an hitherto unexperienced plane beyond space and time, where only Divine Bliss reigned Supreme, and Shri Nathji was the only Reality.“It is difficult for man to understand an Invisible God. And it is even more difficult for him to understand God when He assumes a Visible Human Form.
On the 30th of November 1997 an event occurred which had been prophesied by Shri Nathji in April 1990 itself–the marriage of Priya Nath to Ujwala.“You are being given the status of Raja Janak, the father of Sita Devi, who gave her away in Although Shri M.V. Tanksale of Nagpur was willing to be the father of the bride, but Priya Nath felt that he was too far away at Nagpur to be able to arrange the necessary ceremonies at Gurgaon–and so he had chosen Shri Talwar.“In men naa to koyi chhal hai, na koyi kapat–sirf pyaar hee pyaar hai, issee liye to inkaa naam Priya Nath hai!“He has neither cunningness nor deceipt in him, he has LOVE and only LOVE within him–which is why his name is Priya Nath!”
Immediately after the marriage, the forces of evil struck with force. Priya Nath fell ill with a viral fever and cough, which was wrongly treated by a local dotor, and which worsened and became untractable. It was as if some evil eye, ‘
Sardar Charanjit Singh, who had brought Dr. Jain, was in great financial difficulties at the time. He had great faith in Shri Nathji and Priya Nath, and kept a large portrait of Shri Nathji in his room. “Charanjit Singhji, how fortunate you are that the eyes of the Lord follow you!Once Charanjit Singh took
Pran Nath stayed on at Gurgaon because Priya Nath wanted him to have his eye operation done in India for the advancing cataract in his right eye. The operation was arranged at the Escorts Hospital at Faridabad, where Dr. Manoj Mehta was an eye surgeon.
