– Baba’s Gadi will be placed under the tin shed with a railing around it.
Sitting around the Gadi is permitted. Touching the Gadi is not allowed.
– Use of mobile phones around the Samadhi is endemic. The
atmosphere is marred by the casualness of people constantly using
their mobiles around the Samadhi. The Trust has received many
complaints. All must constantly remain mindful where one is – in the
presence of God. The use of mobile phones will not be allowed in the
vicinity of the Samadhi to maintain the sanctity and tranquillity in this
sacred area. The Samadhi attendants will politely request all not to use
their phones and keep Beloved Baba as their sole focus in this area.
Pilgrims would be able to take photos/ videos from outside the
Samadhi between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
– A ‘Silent Zone’ around the Samadhi is most vital to maintain the
quietude and peacefulness of the area. The chatter of the world and
the mind is to be left behind when one visits their Beloved. A placard
would be prepared with Baba’s picture of a finger on His lips, and the
word ‘Silence’ in different languages. The Samadhi Volunteers, in
silence, will go around the Samadhi area holding the placard, aloft and
visibly, if required at regular intervals of 15 minutes or more from 6 to 8
a.m. and p.m.
– Pilgrims and Volunteers to be appropriately attired when they go to the
– All dog lovers are requested not to bring their dogs near the Samadhi.

the sanctified grounds.

earlier during pre-Covid.
– At 8 p.m., the Samadhi volunteer on duty will ring a bell and request
all pilgrims to leave the Hill. If any pilgrim refuses to leave, the
volunteer should report the name to the Hill Manager for further action.
