Shri Babaji Maharaj had been very fond of the Persian poet, Maghrabi, and often read
his verses in the poet’s book: “Kalaame Maghrabi”–“The voice of Maghrabi”. However the book was never found after the passing away of Shri Babaji Maharaj, and was in all probability lost in Lahore.
Shri Babaji Maharaj never wrote a spiritual book himself. There are libraries enough, already, he would say. Shri Babaji Maharaj had laid stress on realisation derived through personal experience. Do not read too many books, he would say, in Punjabi, or else they might create doubts in your mind. Bauti kitaabaan brham paidaa kar dengi! 
“Zahoore Haqueeqat” was in Urdu and Persian and had been described by many as one of the finest pieces of spiritual writ­ing. In it was history mingled with spirituality. The reader found himself taken into a new world altogether and emerged, enlightened. In later years, the book was given by Mrs. Bhutt to a group of Maul­vis who came from Pakistan, who studied it and said that it appeared to have been written by the hand of some great Paigambar-Prophet.
As already narrated, a very poor devotee of Shri Nathji in Maharashtra, Godbole by name, heard the voice of Shri Babaji Maharaj speaking to him. The voice was dictating the text of “Zahoore Haqueeqat”. Godbole began taking down the dictation. He wrote the book in the Hindi script. Ever since that time, he made it his mission in life to make as many copies of the book as he possibly could in the Hindi script and give them out to people. It would take him several months to finish one book, and immediately after he had finished writing it, he would hear the voice of Shri Babaji Maharaj telling him the name of the person to whom it was to be given. The next morning that very same person would appear at his door. It was a unique spiritual ex­perience. Godbole, who had been addicted to drink, gave up his drinking and drowned himself in the nectar divine that flowed in the pages of this book. It was one of his major sources of happi­ness in a life of poverty and illness. He would frequently write but one sentence to Shri Nathji: Thy Will be Done.
Mahamateshwari once said of Godbole, that, in keeping with his name, it was surely the voice of God that spoke to him: God-bole”, which meant: “God has spoken!”
