Hardly had Shri Nathji and Priya Nath begun to relax after the fatigue of the World Prayer Day, when illness struck Shri Nathji in a most dreadful manner. “Kaamal kar diyaa!”Shri Nathji also says: “Strike when the iron is hot! World Prayer Day “Wonderful! Strike when the iron is hot! The World Prayer Day must be institutionalized! Scores of branches can be opened if we wish to turn this into a movement!”However, Shri Nathji and Priya Nath never got the time to institutionalise the World Prayer Day. Shri Nathji was too big to be bound within the constraints of movements. For him, the World Prayer Day was ever to remain a day, which was meant for the whole world. It was a day when God was found praying to God, for peace upon Earth. Shri Nathji’s world prayer would ever remain as a historic document.“Tarah tarah ke log uss men ghuss jaate hain, apne matlab ke liye!”During the days of R.R. Khanna, Shri Nathji had founded the Divine Love Society with the principles of Love, Faith and Service. Though many had suggested giving it the shape of a formal organization, Shri Nathji had no desires in his mind. Shri Nathji would recall how Lala Hargopal Khanna, Mateshwari’s father had said that there was no need to form a formal society, as it would simply lead to internecine quarrels and rivalries in which the purity of the purpose would be lost. As an advocate, Lala Hargopal had been associated with many societies and knew of the strife that prevailed in them. He would say to Shri Nathji that his mission was not any the less great without being turned into an organization:“Bigaraa kyaa hai aapkaa?”
