Shri Ramanand Swami moved from Jetpur to Faneni at which village he breathed his last, on the
13th day of bright half of Magshar of Samvat year 1858. Next day, after the post-death rituals of Shri Ramanand Swami were over i.e. on the 11th day of dark half of Magshar of Samvat year 1858, Shri Sahajanand Swami, held a large meeting of all the followers gathered to mourn the demise of Shri Ramanand Swami. A Bihari Pandit, named Shitaldas, was present in the meeting. He had left his home and was moving from place to place in search of a Guru, who would enable him in realization
of God Supreme. Having heard that Shri Ramanand Swami was such a Guru and could help him in achieving his object, he had come to Faneni to meet Shri Ramanand Swami. But when he came, the latter had already left this world. When he explained in the meeting his object in coming to the village Faneni, Shri Sahajanand Swami with serene calmness said that he would be able to realize his object, if he chanted with love and faith the name "SWAMINARAYAN".
