"Babaji ne apne kar kamlon se Pardeshwar maha dev mandir ka sthapna Jallandhar me kiya hua hai. Babaji says that jo bhi vyakti is shiv link ka darshan karthe hai unka kahi janmon ka karm kat jathe hai. aur agar koi is shiv link ka thirtham grahan karther hai (drink the thirtham) then unka asadhya se asadhya rog bhi door hojatha hai. aur complete health regain hotha hai. " Thanks Vijayanji for this message.
