Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Maharaj

Gobind Sadan pays a fond farewell to Atal Behari Vajpayee, who served as India’s Prime Minister from 1998 to 2004. He passed away at the age of 93 on 16 August. He came to Baba Virsa Singh for blessings several times in Gobind Sadan, and also lovingly insisted that Babaji visit him at his residence before Babaji left for Russia in 2004 (see photo). The Prime Minister was loved and respected by people from across the political spectrum. He was the only political leader whose home Babaji agreed to visit. In this unique case, Babaji accepted his invitation because of Vajpayee’s respect for all people and all religions.
