"I am Yogi and Yogi is Me"

At 86 years of age, Shastriji Maharaj's health began deteriorating. When Yogiji Maharaj was in Ahmedabad and asked for Swamishri's permission to go to Gondal, Shastriji Maharaj replied, "Now Maharaj will shortly take me. Therefore, I am placing Narandas (Pramukh Swami) under your care. I am also entrusting all these mandirs to you. Please look after them all."
The next day Shastriji Maharaj remembered Yogiji Maharaj, "Oh Yogi is indeed Yogi, a real Gunatit soul. It is impossible to find an equal to Yogi…"
Shastriji Maharaj had also declared that, 'There is not an iota of difference between myself and Yogi. All of you should obey Yogiji Maharaj… I am Yogi and Yogi is me."
Shastriji Maharaj left his mortal frame in Sarangpur
in 1951 (Samvat 2007, Vaishakh Sud 4).
Yogiji Maharaj continued the spiritual work of Shastriji Maharaj.
