NIRMAL ANAND SWAMI
In Omkareshwar, Baba met a Bengali pundit (a Brahmin scholar or priest) named Nirmal Ananda Swami. The local people called him Mahatma, taking him to be a holy man. While Baba talked with him (in English), Sadashiv was instructed to take a bath in the sacred Narmada River. With the swami's help, Baba found a number of other sadhus in the area to whom he could bow.
