The landlord was astonished. He agreed to hand over the land instantly. Thereafter the holy fire is burning continuously till then. Bivat (ash) of the firewood burnt by the holy fire is believed to cure different physical disorders like headache, stomach ache etc.

Before he left the physical body the guru gave some of his powers to a few disciples. On the day he departed his physical body by his own wish, a number of people gathered around him at the place where he habitually meditated. The Guru left his body after bidding goodbye to his disciples and other followers.
