Shree Punaji had made unlimited devotion to krushnaji maharaj praising him and hence Krushnaji had blessed punaji up with sidaeevacha….

Punaji maharaj has done the job of accurately recording what krushnaji maharaj had preached or said for forty-five years.

Krushnaji maharaj while sitting for meditation in his cottage or hut, in the forest his body has become water.
