Laalaaji Nilayam Charitable Trust

In a website created on 26 February 2009, the grandson of Lalaji, Dinesh Kumar Saxena tells us that he created a charitable organization, the Laalaaji Nilayam Charitable Trust (LNCT) at: Its goal is to raise funds to rehabilitate the "holy places" that have marked the life of Lalaji and organize tourist pilgrimages. It is planned to renovate the house of Lalaji (Laalaaji Nilayam) and to increase its capacity, to erect a life-size statue of Lalaji and to acquire many other places of worship.

The oldest male of the Holy Family represents Lalaji, he is also at the head of NaqshMuMRa (Naqshbandiya Mujaddidiya Mazhariya Ramchandriya). So today the role goes to Dinesh Kumar, retired from the railways since 2002 and soon 65 years old, since the death of his elder brother in 1974. Previously, this function was performed by Akilesh Kumar (28/06/41-15/05/74) who was not 3 years old at the death of his father and who died before he was 33 years old, but who still had the time to create a periodical entitled "adhyaatma dhaara. Their father, Narayan or Jagmohan Narain (2/11/01-28/08/44), preceded them from 1931 to 1944.
In fact, it should be a little more complex than that: when you look at their Sufi "golden chain", (see here also for a different "golden chain") we see other intermediaries characters, but Dinesh does not mention them ...

Clearly, Dinesh says that Lalaji was not only the "aadiguru" of Sahaj Marg, but especially the one and only great spiritual master of the non-Islamic Naqshbandi Sufi lineage, following the teaching of the great Sufi saint Hazarat Maulana Fazal Ahmad Khan Sahib Raipur who he followed from 1911, for 16 full years. However, Dinesh does not say a word about the teachings of Sant Mat that he would have followed ...

According to Dinesh, his grandfather "Laalaaji is eternally waiting for those who have yet to come." He would have said in effect: "the task which could not be achieved during my life time, it would be the prime duty and the best charity of my forthcoming generations, to complete it."

So it is what NaqshMuMRa and LNCT through Dinesh are doing today, but not only them because Dinesh also cites the SRCM, the Sahaj Marg and Chari, but without adding a word about the descendants of Babuji or Kasturi or Narayana's (ISRC) ... This is also true (there is mention... (see here) ) of Ramashram satsang led by the successors of some great disciples of Lalaji, the Akhil Bhartiya Santmat Satsang (ABSS), which follows the teaching of Brij Mohan Lal (nephew Lalaji) or even the Golden Sufi Center initiated by Radha Mohan Lal (another nephew of Lalaji). An interesting eclecticism ... especially after the harsh words of Babuji in 1963 about the Sufi teachings in India.

Who will be at the head of NaqshMuMRa and the LNCT tomorrow? Apparently, the descendants of Raghubal Dayal, brother Lalaji, are now excluded. Women also! So will it be the son of Akilesh, Vinay Kumar born in 1965 or Samir Kumar in 1970? Or will it the responsibility of the son of Dinesh, Himanshu Vikram born in 1980?
