A Portrait of Shri Nathji, taken when he was at Dilaram Estate in 1943, depicting him in such a dress, reveals the most beautiful, most benevolent Being in existence. The calmness and serenity of the Face in the midst of such intense physical suffering was unmatched and divine.
All who saw the portrait were astonished at the absolute godliness of the face. It radiated love and peace to the whole world. This was something that only Shri Nathji could do –give peace to the people of the world while being in such great physical suffering himself.
His attendants and visitors would always find Shri Nathji smiling, no matter how severe his illness, and Shri Nathji would go on showering his love and peace upon them as if nothing were wrong with him.
Shri Nathji’s Turban
The manner in which Shri Nathji wrapped his turban around his head was nothing short of a miracle. He could hardly move his right arm without excruciating pain, and the tying of the turban required an effort with both hands, more so the right hand. It was only Shri Nathji who could tie the seven-yard long turban with such perfection with only his left hand.
There was hardly a person who could rival the perfection of Shri Nathji’s turbans. It looked like a Crown upon his head. Indeed, those who met him for the first time scarcely had time to think of the turban on his head. It was like the head-dress of an emperor and part of Shri Nathji’s personality.
The portrait of 1943, when Shri Nathji was at Dilaram Estate, reveals such a perfect turban that one is apt to forget the impossible conditions under which it had been tied, and the unendurable pain that Shri Nathji must have gone through just to wrap the turban on his head.
Shri Nathji never met visitors without his turban and he never left the house without it. Hence it had become necessary for him to wind the turban around his head almost every day. The portrait of Dilaram Estate will remain as a guiding light for humanity to show how much a delicate human body could endure even in the severest possible pain and perform its worldly duties to perfection.
