Nirmal Darbar[edit]

Nirmal Darbar used to be the name of the Samagam corresponding to each public meeting of Baba. This show was broadcast by approximately 40 different channels including AXN, TV Asia, Star News, SAB TV and more.[5] During these Darbars, he makes public appearances and converses with aggrieved devotees who usually narrate their personal, social or financial worries to him. He then, asks questions to diagnose what has stopped "kirpa" (God's kindness) from flowing in the devotees' lives. He advises them on those issues publicly and suggests "solutions" to make "kirpa" (God's kindness) flow in the devotees' lives again thereby solving their problems. The solutions that Nirmal baba suggests are usually related to the daily lives of people. Nirmal Baba also claims to save his devotees from negative effects of black magic and evil spirits. The tagline of the show was "Yantra chale na tantra mantra, na rahe dukhon ka ghera, Bhagya uday ho jayega jab ho, Nirmal Baba aashirwad tera," meaning "Even when objects representing aspects of divine and mystical hymns and sounds having special meanings fail, good luck can be awakened in a person's life by blessings of Nirmal Baba." [6]

Principles[edit]

Nirmal baba's suggestions are usually related to minor activities in daily life of devotees. But, as a whole he tells his devotees to have faith upon the God they worship. What matters is the belief and love that you put while you worship. He tells his devotees to stay away from all the quick fix solutions of Tantriks and instead have real faith upon their deity. He always emphasizes to help poor and hungry people. He also tells his devotees to take care and offer food to cow. He tells his devotees not to act selfish upon themselves. If they want to have any common foods like pani-puri or samosas or anything, or purchase any items like lipstick or even the smallest things, then, they should have it."[7]"
