In May 1934, Shastriji Maharaj built the third Akshar-Purushottam temple in Gondal around the Akshar Deri (memorial shrine of Gunatitanand Swami ) and appointed Yogi Bapa as the mahant (head). In 1933, during the construction work, when Yogi Bapa was bit by a poisonous cobra, Shastriji Maharaj used the power of the SwamiNarayan mahaamantra to cure him (as given in Swami Ni Vato 1/154). This was the first great display of divinity in Gondal. Later, Yogi Bapa would display similar divinity with Dadubhai.
