Yogeshwar Sri Devpuriji is revered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The place where he had his Ashram, Kailash in Rajasthan, carries the same name as Mount Kailash in the Himalayas (Tibet) which is dedicated to Lord Shiva.
Sri Devpuriji’s powers are immeasurable. He embodies all characteristics of Lord Shiva - Shiva is the saviour, the destroyer of bad and evil. Shiva is consciousness, purity, fire. He protects his devotees. It was Lord Shiva who brought the wisdom of yoga to humanity.
The record of Sri Devpuriji’s life is only fragmentary. One of his characteristics was to appear suddenly, out of nowhere, and to disappear in a similarly unexpected way. Wherever he went, wonderous things happened. It is said that within a circle of five metres no rain would fall around him and that his feet would leave no footprints.
In his Ashram at Kailash he held captivating Satsangs that attracted people from all over India. Sri Devpuriji’s words were like heavenly ambrosia to all his devotees. Great was Sri Devpuriji’s love for animals. He was constantly followed by a menagerie of cows, goats, birds, dogs and snakes, which obeyed his every command.
Sri Devpuriji is the Guru of Sri Deep Narayan Mahaprabhuji. Their relationship was one of great unity and love. They were "two in body, but one in Atma". Sri Mahaprabhuji expressed his devotion towards his master in poetic spiritual songs (bhajans). They describe the highest aim of yoga, the union with the omnipresent, eternal and divine Self.
