His followers maintain that Haidakhan Babaji is a Mahavatar – “a human manifestation of God, not born from woman.” It is reported that starting in late September 1970 Haidakhan Babaji (हैडाखान बाबाजी) spent forty-five days meditating in a small temple on the top of the Kumaon Mount Kailash “without leaving his seat.” In September 1971, Haidakhan Babaji, in a sworn testimony, convinced the judge of the court in Haldwani that he was the “Old Hairakhan Baba,” thought to be active in that region in the years 1860–1922, and that he had the right to use the ashrams in Kathgaria and Haidakhan. In 1971 Haidakhan Babaji started travelling across India, proclaiming his Message, performing sacred ceremonies, such as yagna, and attracting more devotees. This included celebrities, such as Shammi Kapoor, and gradually more Westerners.
