He engrossed and attract the large number of communities of all the caste and creed in most of India by his divine preaching’s. He also established number of Temples in Gujarat, India.
For purpose of administration of these temples and entire sect, He divided India in two parts namely Shree NarNarayan Dev Gadi-Northern dioceses having head seat at Ahmedabad and Shree LaxmiNarayan Dev Gadi-southern Dioceses with Head seat at Vadtal, by stretching an Imaginary line between Kolkata [East] to Dwarka [West]. For the administration purpose of religious and administrative affairs, He executed ‘Desh Vibhag Lekh’ and ‘Shikshapatri’ as governing scripture.
He adopted and installed his two nephews namely H. H. Acharya Shree Ayodhyaprasadji Maharaj and H. H.
