Baba Balak Nath Ji & Guru Gorakh Nath who forcefully
wanted to make
baba ji his discipline.
Guru Gorakh Nath wanted Baba Ji to join His sect and tried
for that. Baba Ji was not willing for that. One day Guru
Gorakh Nath along with his 300 disciples and asked Baba Ji
for providing them seating. Baba Ji spread His towel and
surprisingly a portion of that remained unoccupied even
after accommodating Guru Gorakh Nath alongwith his all
disciples. Then Gorakh Nath asked Baba Ji to bring some
water in a bowl from a nearby hill-bauli. Baba Ji found some
magic in the bowl when He filled it with water. Thus He
understood the intention of Guru Gorakh Nath. Baba Ji made
that bauli disappear by His Sidhi and told Gorakh Nath about
the non-existence of the bauli.
Nath asked his disciple Bhartrihari to accompany Baba Ji to
verify the fact. Bhartrihari was taken aback by the
non-existence of the bauli. Baba Ji told Bhartrihari the
factual position and further emphasized the imprudence of
Gorakh Nath for shunning the worship of ‘Lord Shiva’ and in
its place recommending his own adoration.
Bhartrihari understood the whole game and got lost in
devotion to Lord Shiva. This time also, Baba Ji returned
without water. Then Gorakh Nath sent Bhairon Nath to bring
Bhartrihari back along with water. Bhairon Nath couldn’t
spot the water and came empty handed without water and
Bhartrihari. Thereafter Gorakh Nath asked Baba Ji to serve
them milk. Baba Ji called a non-milking barren cow and
patted her. The cow started milking and everybody took milk.
Amazingly there was still lot of milk in the bowl.
Gorakh Nath threw his worshipping skin to sky and asked Baba
Ji to bring back to the earth. Baba Ji aimed the skin with
His ‘Chimata’ and pieces of skin fell on earth. At this,
Baba Ji tempted Gorakh Nath to bring Baba Ji’s ‘Chimata’
back to the earth. Gorakh Nath asked Bhairon to do the same,
which Bhairon couldn’t.
Reaching to Deoth Sidh and Cave Dwelling: After getting
defeat in every feat, Gorakh Nath directed his disciples to
forcibly put rings in the ears of Baba Ji. Every disciple
became faint before doing so. During that struggle Baba Ji
made a loud cry and reached a place where ‘Charan Paduka’
temple is situated. From ‘Charan Paduka’, Baba ji went to a
Cave on the Hill. A demon came out of the Cave and warned
Baba Ji to go away. Baba Ji, by His ‘sidh-shakti’ forced the
demon to vacate the Cave for Baba Ji’s meditation.
The demon understood the state of affairs and went away.
Then Baba Ji settled there for meditation. Bhartrihari also
settled for meditation near that Cave. One day, a Brahamin
named as ‘Banarasi’ from the nearby village Chakmoh came to
that area for grazing his cows. Baba Ji appeared before him
and interacted. Brahamin told Baba Ji about his barren cows.
Baba Ji asked where his cows were. Brahamin took Baba Ji to
the place where his cows were grazing. Surprisingly only
loins and tigers were there.
After seeing the stunning posture of Brahamin, Baba Ji asked
him to call his cows. Astonishingly, as the Brahamin called,
his cows reached him. Seeing the miracle, Brahamin became
the devotee of Baba Ji. Brahamin continued to see Baba Ji.
One day Baba Ji told him that He would disappear one day and
asked the Brahamin to continue the tradition of ‘Dhuna’ and
worshipping. Brahamin followed the point and maintained the
A lamp remained lighted near Baba Ji whose light spread far
away in the nearby villages. Thus people had started calling
Baba Ji as ‘Baba Deoth Sidh’ and later on the place became
famous as ‘Baba Deoth Sidh’.
