This little hut with tiled roof as Baba's Temple solemnly proclaims the message that the Lord after practising countless ascetic austerities and performing endless meditations in the seclusion of the Himalayas has ultimately come down to the humdrum and obscure land of the poor human as the most sacred and kind shelter of their life just out of His own divinity and unparalleled kindness! In a short span of time, Baba's devotees built a Temple with the shrine and altar for the daily worships in His glory and sanctification! (...above right).

Baba Lokenath Thakur is an idol for the poor, humble and obscure at one end, and an invincible giver of wealth and prosperity to the blessed at the other! Upon the towering waves of the oceans, seas and rivers and in the rays of the sun and the moonlight, His devotees feel his omnipresence!

[Baba Lokenath was born on Janmasthami, the birthday of Lord Krishna, in 1730 (18th Bhadra, 1137) to a Brahmin family in the village of Chakla, also claimed by many devotees as the nearby village of Kochua, a village in North 24 Parganas District and is about 3 km from Berachampa.

On the 19th day of Jyestha, 1297 (June 3, 1890), at 11:45 am, the Baba was seated in his usual Gomukh yoga asana in his own Baradi Ashram worship room, Narayanganj, Dhaka, now in Bangladesh. He went into a trance with his eyes open, and while still in meditation, Baba left his physical body forever to go to the land of eternity - heaven!]

In His life-span of 160 years (1730-1890), He travelled to the holy cities of the world including Jerusalem, Medina & Mecca, Vrindavan, Haridwar, Benares, Allahabad, Sagardwip, Kalighat, to name only a few and the Himalayas ceaselessly on foot with and without shoes for over 100 years till age 124 years. Baba spent the last 36 years of His life at Baradi - Narayanganj in the district of Dhaka now in Bangladesh where He revealed His pervasive godliness amidst His Lilas divine. His devotees gratifyingly sings that Baba's shoes travel around the world with His bhaktas (devotees) in the midst of Kirtans accompanied by cymbals, drums, conchs and flowers and prasadam. Baba's devotees also gratifyingly call Him 'Fakir' (pennyless) and Lunatic. They see Lord Krishna, Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Lord Narayana & Mother Kali in Him. They also reveal that one can get to Baba by turning oneself a fakir and lunatic. The significance of this revealation is that Baba does not need wealth or honor from humankind - his genuinity and divinity lie in His simplest life style as that of a fakir or an insane person who does not crave for earthly pleasure and amenities!

At the age of 160 years, Baba Lokenath Thakur passed on lotus-seated, keeping tall and erect and left this mortal world of his own will showing that the mortal life in the human form has to be given away once for all! But Baba left an indelible mark of divinity that spanned over a century and would continue to span forever amongst His believers and followers. Indeed, after more than a century, one can find a statue (bigraha) of Baba Lokenath being sold in the high class urban markets to the remotest and most obscure village fairs in any season of the year. Isn't it true that Baba is omnipresent in the truest sense of the term?

His famous message to the humankind still pervasively reverberates in the heart of millions -

"Whenever you are in danger, whether in ocean or in war or in the wild, remember Me. I shall save you. You may not know Me. You may not realize who I am. Just pray to Me with a little touch of your heart and I shall free you from gripping sorrows and miseries."
