Shri Baikunth Nath was a relative of Shri Babaji Bhagwan. He had a deep and abiding faith in Shri Babaji Bhagwan, as also a great love and affection for Shri Nathji. He spent a large part of his time serving Shri Babaji Bhagwan. And there was only one thing that he continually asked of Shri Babaji Bhagwan: “Please let me remain always with Shri Nathji!”
Although he was like an elder of the family to Shri Nathji, yet he served him with the same devotion with which he served Shri Babaji Bhagwan. When people would ask him: “Why do you serve someone who is so much younger than you?” He would reply: “He, whom I serve, you cannot see in him, and he, whom you see, is not the one I serve!”
He stayed with Shri Babaji Bhagwan for a very long time. The last moments of his life were spent in the service of Shri Babaji Bhagwan and he passed away blissfully at the feet of his Master. His death was the kind of death that all righteous men crave for. He firmly believed in the words of Shri Babaji Bhagwan that the time would come when the Avatar would appear on the earth, for whom the people of all faiths had been waiting. He knew that the Avatar was Shri Nathji, and he said so openly. When he passed away, Shri Nathji prayed that he be granted eternal life, and his soul mingled into that of Shri Nathji to remain with him forever.
Those were the days when almost all people had come to know that Shri Nathji was the Avatar but it had not been made manifest openly by Shri Babaji Bhagwan. Also, Shri Nathji had wished that all the faith and devotion be reserved for Shri Babaji Bhagwan during those early days, and diligently kept himself in the background, despite Shri Babaji’s exhortation to him to reveal himself.
