|Subject: neem karoli baba|
|there are errors in this page and also wikipddia about neemkaroli baba.|
1.In the 1940s he lived in the outskirts of Nainital (hanumangarhi) in kumaon hills india. My grandfather was a regular visitor. He was known as Neem karoli baba - not maharaj jee to his disciples there.
2. ‘nan‘ and ‘thul‘ are words of kumaoni dialect and mean ‘small‘ and ‘big‘. It is NOT a dialect of bihar as stated.
3.He was a hindu and a mystic (sufi) like Ramkrishna Paramhansa and saint Kabir. He worshipped hindu God HANUMAN.
4. His ‘base‘ was himalayas (nainital) but he later on came to spend a lot of time in Lucknow, uttar pradesh india.
5.He was said be born in uttar pradesh india but chose, like most mystics, to settle in kumaon hills.
Thanks for allowing me to shed some light on baba. He met Ramdass almost three decades after my grandfather came to know him.
