Patients believe that if Mannu Baba provides them the medicine, they will definitely get cured. Mannu Baba devoted his whole life in the service of mankind; he was a great philanthropist. Still there is a saying famous among the people "Mannu baba ne nahi kaha hai ki aisa karna hai", they still remember him with great love, affection and gratitude.

He was unanimously elected president by Uttar Pradesh Ayurved council for 15 years. He was nominated as "Guru" by Rashtriya Ayurved Vidyapeeth, governing body of Ayurved, Govt. Of India. An American Biographical Institute, USA wanted to award him the "Best Doctor Award" but he refused them thrice. Vaidya Brij Behari ji was not only the physician but also a powerful orator, a great poet, writer and thinker too. His collection of poems is called "Brij Vani".
