When Shri Babaji Bhagwan turned his radiant gaze at the city of Amritsar, his inner light appeared to spread everywhere, lighting up the hearts of innumerable persons who had been stumbling in the darkness. People were drawn to Shri Babaji Bhagwan spontaneously as if brought there by an Unseen Power.  And all who came to him found their desires in life being fulfilled. They were made rich materially as well as spiritually. No matter what a person desired, he obtained it at once from Shri Babaji Bhagwan. The faith of the populace in Shri Babaji Bhagwan began to soar.
As Shri Babaji’s fame began travelling far and wide, multitudes thronged to him, and people began coming to him from places as far off as Kabul and Nepal.
Shri Babaji Bhagwan stayed first with Lala Gokul Chand Kapoor, Cloth Merchant, in the bazaar. Later he stayed at a house at Ramtalaayi, and then shifted to Namak Mandi, from where he went to live with Lala Kaahan Chand Saheb Maheshwari who lived near the Jaure Peepal area.
Lala Kaahan Chand was in great worldly difficulties at the time, and it was only the sustaining spiritual power of Shri Babaji Bhagwan that kept him at peace while these difficulties lasted, and then took him out of this difficult phase of life with ease. The flame of faith was kindled in the heart of Kaahan Chand. While the troubles had lasted, it was as if he had been walking in the hot sun, but Shri Babaji Bhagwan had placed a protecting umbrella over his head.
