Maharaja Nabha came to Shri Babaji Maharaj and said to him: Babaji, there can be no doubt about the fact that you are destined to be the Imam Mehdi of our age – the Yugpurush – or the Messiah of our times who shall bring the Grace of God to the whole world.
However the words of Maharaja Nabha were anathema to Shri Babaji Maharaj. He went to his abode that night and prayed before God with tears in his eyes: “O Lord! Let me become the lowliest of the lowly upon earth. I have no desire to be known as great in the eyes of the world. I do not wish to be made the Imam Mehdi of this age. All I ask of Thee is to let me remain in my humble position as Thy servant. Do not thrust me away from Thyself by giving me a position and status in the world! If at all it is Thy wish to give me a title, then let it be that of Ghulam Rue Zameen, the slave of all of humanity.

And it was thus that Shri Babaji Maharaj took upon himself the title of the slave of all of humanity, Ghulam Rue Zameen, a title he ultimately transferred to his son, Shri Bhola Nathji, when he came of age.
