Sanctuary Seeker to Sanctuary Giver

Khilchipur was just a night-stop for Prabhudasji some 25 years ago. When he rested here, on his way back to the Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary, villagers thronged the tree under which he slept, asking him to stay on. They already knew him as the baba who had lived in the sanctuary for decades, among wild animals. The seer complied, and a plot of land was allotted to him. Later, devotees helped build temples and other structures. The seer is still allowed to freely enter the sanctuary, while his devotees can visit twice a year, for religious rites.
