for its beneficent and public welfare Activities. It was founded
by a holy saint, Yogiraj Shri Bhagwan Ji, in the times of
Emperor Jahangir to serve the spiritual cause. His saint established
this seat in a humble, thatched cottage in a jungle.The spiritual
power of the saint so much impressed the Emperor Jahangir
that he bestowed upon this institution a rich pension and
a vast estate. From those times the charitable work of providing
succour to the orphans and destitutes has been continuing
even to these modern times. During this period all the saints
and disciples who have followed their spiritual mentor, Shri
Bhagwan Ji, have been giving special attention to this philanthropic
institution, initiated by their divine father. Their devotion
has inspired many rulers of the princely states to donate
property to this institution to augment its income.
