Mahatma Shanti Swaroop was a mahatma who had become greatly devoted to Shri Babaji Bhagwan at Amritsar. But it had been his brain more than his heart that had come close to Shri Babaji Bhagwan. This was so because the words of Shri Babaji Bhagwan carried an unsurpassed logic that baffled even the best of philosophers and intellectuals of his time. Mahatma Sita Ram loved to engage in debate with Shri Babaji Bhagwan on spiritual topics and was fascinated at Shri Babaji’s incontrovertible logic in spiritual matters.
He had renounced the world at an early age in search of truth and had become a Fakeer. He had searched for a spiritual master who would divulge the truth to him in a manner that he could accept. Though he met many a person who showed him various paths, he was not satisfied with any of them. At last he found his goal in Shri Babaji Bhagwan. He became like a moth that had found its beloved, the flame. He would often say: “I have found Him who I was seeking!”
He would be seen frequently standing by the side of Shri Babaji Bhagwan fanning him with a hand fan in the hot weather. He had forgotten all the cares and worries of the world and had merged himself completely in Shri Babaji Bhagwan.
One day he said to Shri Babaji: “Bhagwan! Even if the kings and emperors of the world come before me and offer me their entire wealth, and in return ask me to give them this service of fanning thee, I shall refuse to give it to them! The happiness that I find at your feet cannot be found anywhere in the world.”
He would often say to Shri Babaji Bhagwan: “Bhagwan! If ever I should go astray, please bring me back by force if necessary!”
He became a prisoner of Shri Babaji’s bond of love. It was a bond that no one ever wished to break.
