Sri Lalaji grew up into a perfect specimen of graceful manhood with perfect build and average height. His outward gracefulness is just an expression of the inner harmony he enjoyed. He had a wheatish complexion. His broad and high forehead was indicative of the vast store of intellect which he used not as one used a lamp for his own seeing but like a light house to guide those on the sea. Most remarkable were his eyes which were like two bright stars which appeared to see through everyone and every thing. Sleep and wakefulness seemed to lie intermingled and in repose in those eyes which caused an awakening in a human being with a single movement of their lids. They were homes of silent prayer or sweet, silent rhetoric of persuading eyes. He was of amiable feelings and his countenance a beauty of the highest order. His hair was silken to the touch. One front tooth was comparatively larger. His ears were of medium size. He sported a small beautiful beard and a mustache. Sri Lalaji did not like luxury of any kind. The clothes he wore were simple and clean. Kurtas, shirts, pyjamas and dhotis were his usual wear. Sometimes he wore a waistcoat over his kurta and a buttoned up coat reaching down to his knees. He wore colored cap and wrapped a shawl around his shoulders in the winter. He wore no ornaments. Lalaji saheb kept his eyes mostly down. He did not laugh aloud but simply smiled. His smile announced goodness and sweetness, and brightened others with its spiritual vivacity. He was a great lover of humanity and often used things given to him with love inspite of his own dislike for those things. He hated flattery and though he loved his followers with their faults he never failed to enforce stern discipline with love.
Frugal in his food habits he lived an unostentatious life. He did not take break fast. Bread, pulses, and chatni was his morning meal, while in the evening he took bread, vegetables and pickles. He did not take meat, ice or tea. Kachauri and arvi were his favourite dishes.
He always had a tight program. He never slept after the sun-rise. After attending to natural calls he put on clean clothes and devoted himself to spiritual sadhana imparting training to others. After that he went to office. On return from office he again imparted spiritual training. He took early dinner and went for walk around 8 P M. After that he busied himself with training the aspirants and went to bed by 10 P M. But without going to sleep he used to attend to the aspirants till 2 a.m. in the morning. He always slept in a separate room but also shared the same with satsanghis. Sometimes he took his guests for walk along the banks of Ganga and also to fairs for a change.
By nature he was always calm but was easily moved by the pains and pleasures of others. Possessed of a melodious voice, he was an adept at employing sweet language for communicating his thoughts and captivating the hearts of his audience. Rarely could he be angered. Not given to superfluous talk, he spoke as little as possible. However in answering questions put to him he dealt with them exhaustively and seldom was the inquirer left with doubt on any matter. In case there was some one who could not understand him, he brought about the desired state in that person who acquired an experience and knowledge of the subject under discussion.
With a view to train his fellow brothers and disciples he performed the duties of a householder exceedingly well. He respected his elders and saluted them, exercised humility with those of his own age without resorting to humiliation, and loved those who were younger than himself. He did not smoke. He did not like playing cards or chausar. Sometimes he sang and played on the harmonium.
Sri Lalaji was very much against rituals and favoured widow marriage as well as female education. One of his wishes was that the children of satsanghis marry amongst themselves; but early or late marriages did not find favour with him. His servants were like members of his own family, and were paid on due dates. According to him, servants were helpers and should be engaged to do work which their masters could not generally do themselves. Breaking of promises, spending more money on ceremonial occasions than one could afford to, were strongly disliked by him. Backbiters got no sympathy from him. On the contrary, they were strongly reprimanded - "You have not been appointed spies," he would say, and bring them to the right path at once. Sri Lalaji was transferred from Kaimganj to Fatehgarh in the year 1908. He began, for most of the time, to live in seclusion and to remain lost in God. There was an old servant who did all the house work. Lalaji's personality, mode of living and general behaviour impressed his neighbours greatly and they loved him dearly and respected greatly. In the beginning, some teachers came to him and were transformed in no time. Finding a great change in themselves, those teachers told some students about the change wrought in their personalities without their own effort and this brought some students to Lalaji, and they also got transformed likewise. Learning of this amazing and novel method other people began to come, but Lalaji did not start mass or, regular satsangh at that time. He used to transmit, cleanse and transform them saying that his work was that of a sweeper or washer man, Who ever came to him would be cleansed through and through. After his manas was cleaned he would get a guide according to his samskaras. His motto was, no undesirable should be initiated but if one had come, he must not go back. He greatly hated to be called a guru. About imparting training, he used to say that he was only a peon to his officer. He had simply to carry out the orders of Divinity without thinking about the success or failure of his efforts.
