As much as I find the article interesting and the person likeable, I don't think sentences like “In spite of extreme physical discomfort, he always remained in a blissful state. Despite comprehensive treatment by doctors and meticulous care by devotees and relatives, all efforts to save his body failed. On 9 April, 1901 (Chaitra Vad Pancham V.S. 1957), at Rajkot, he died in a state of complete awareness.” are neutral enough to be in an encyclopedia. What is a state of complete awareness? It sounds more like a religious conception than a neutral description of a person's state of mind. Same thing for “efforts to save his body”, it sounds loaded and partial to the idea that the body is nothing but a shell for a “soul” or such. “all efforts to save him” would be more neutral IMHO.
A neutral point of view or a western point of view? Problem is it is difficult to explain the "state of awareness" and yes it is a "religious concept" (not conception). Given that since this is about a religious figure, religious concept need to be expressed.
In the quest for making it a NPOV, the article has lost meaning (it has actually become meaningless).
I will have to dig through lot of non-english material and update the article.

Ideas for improvements.
- There had been very interesting events in his life time. there are many sources but most of them are unreliable. still like he was Shatavdhani, relation with gandhi and other spiritual leaders (eg. Dada Bhagwan) can be explored. works section expand. and ofcourse Reliable sources needed.. :) (AK jain added by me proved unreliable as you suggested earlier to me somewhere else) I am busy and on wikipedia:wikibreak so would not participate much.. regards..--Nizil (talk) 20:19, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
