Very early the next morning, February 9th, (1954) Baba left for Mahoba. En route he gave darshan in Panwari where Pukar’s in-laws lived. Kishan Singh recalled: “The display of their songs by the kirtan singers with finger cymbals in their hands, backed by the heat of the burning love and devotion with which the display was given, can hardly be forgotten. Every part of their bodies seemed jumping in ecstasy as they played the instruments and danced with joy at finding Baba among them.”
From Panwari, Baba proceeded to Mahoba, where darshan arrangements had been made by Gaya Prasad’s brother, Ramsevak Khare. On this occasion, Babu Ramprasad expressed a wish to erect a Baba-temple in Nauranga, and Baba advised him to remember, “My temple is in your heart alone.”
Babu Ramprasad replied, “The temple will be built solely to keep you there. It will be a symbol of your visit, on the basis of which we will be able to keep you always in our hearts. We wish for a medium of your remembrance, Baba.” Baba accepted his prayer, and touched a stone which Babu had brought for the foundation. Thus, the temple Meher Dham was established in Nauranga, where the opposition had been the greatest. In fact, Meher Dham came into being from the heart-blood of the Avatar’s closest lovers there, who left nothing undone in serving his cause. Babu’s brother, Narsingdas Ramprasad, had dedicated his very life to Baba’s cause. And due to the hard labor he had done, Narsingdas fell ill and passed away soon after Baba’s visit. But he was blessed, dying with Baba’s name on his lips.
Pukar placed his printing press in Mahoba at Baba’s service. He wanted to begin publishing a magazine dedicated to Baba, and Baba appointed a committee consisting of Keshav, Pukar, Shripat Sahai, Bhavani Prasad, Gaya Prasad and Laxmichand Paliwal, who was made chairman. Thus, after a few months the Hindi magazine Meher Pukar (Meher’s Call) came into being. (1)
