The Face of Faith

Lokenath Brahmachari (31 August 1730 – 2 June 1890) also known as Baba Lokenath was a Hindu yogi and mystic who lived during the 18th and 19th century Bengal and resided for 26 years at the village Baradi, Dist: Narayanganj, Bangladesh. His annual festival is held every year by millions of devotees and followers, in many monasteries, especially in Barodi as he spent most of his time here and in millions of households through worship, keertan, yajna, food offerings and in many other religious ways on the 19th day of the Hindu month of Jyaishtha. On the 19th day of Jaistha, 1297 (1st June, 1890), Sunday, Baba Lokenath was meditating when he went into a trance with his eyes open, and while still in meditation, left his physical body forever. He was aged 160. He had made a promise before his death: “I am eternal, I am deathless. After this body falls, do not think that everything will come to an end. I will live in the hearts of all living beings in my subtle astral form. Whoever will seek my refugee, will always receive my Grace.”
