Amongst the people who came to Shri Babaji Maharaj at Lahore, there was Savitri Devi, the daughter of Lala Hargopal Khanna. From the very day she entered into the presence of Shri Babaji Maharaj, a feeling took possession of her that she had reached her real home. 
The entire family of Lala Hargopal Khanna became greatly devoted to Shri Babaji Maharaj. Savitri Devi, who has been mentioned above, was the youngest of Lala Hargopal’s daughters. She and her two sisters would come to Shri Babaji Maharaj and Jagatmataji with great devotion, and Shri Babaji Maharaj would greatly enjoy the food she cooked for them. Jagatmataji began to love her as her own daughter, and would frequently go for long walks with Savitri Devi.
It appeared as if Shri Babaji Maharaj and Jagatmata were bringing this Devi to the place where she belonged, and that a great mission lay ahead of her, to which she was to bring fulfil­ment. She was destined to be the living force—the Shakti, the Divine Power of Shri Nathji.
Even as a child, she had been different from her sisters. Material possessions had no significance for her. Though her father loved her most, since she was the young­est child in his family, she would always show the utmost of concern for her elder sisters. She would retain the cheapest sarees for herself while giving to her elder sisters the expen­sive ones she had bought.
Her father doted upon her and intended to send her to England for higher studies. He had the only Cit­roen car in Lahore at the time, and would be seen riding in it frequently with his loving daughter.
She was a graduate in Economics, English and Sanskrit. She was also an author in her own right and her writings would cover a wide range of subjects from Economics and Politics to spiritual themes. The latter held her interest greatly and she would frequently read these aloud to Shri Babaji Maharaj. She had resolved never to marry, for she had seen the unhappiness that attended the home of many a married woman. For her, the thought of spending her life with a husband engaged in material pursuits was anathema. She had envisioned herself marrying only Lord Krishna. It was a dream that was to come true.
