Due to strong affection between the Lord and Ebhel, Lord insists that Ebhel makes a last request. Ebhel asks Lord to look after Dada as his own. Ebhel passes away on vs Kartik vad 5th 1870. Dada is only 12 years old. Lord wants to test Dada’s love for him. On the day of the funeral He calls Dada, Jivuba & Laduba. He announces that He is leaving since Ebhel has passed away. Dada pleads for the Lord to stay. Lord says He will only stay if Dada signs over the whole estate to Him !!! Dada’s test 2:  Dada’s test 2 Dada without hesitation calls for paper and signs over the whole kingdom. Lord says ‘now that Gadhada is mine, I request your family to leave before sunrise tomorrow and go to a place where Swaminarayan is not known’. Dada replies ‘as you please Maharaj’. Next day, before sunrise Lord shows His impatience and taunts Dada. ‘What are you waiting for? Why don’t you say you want to stay here and that it was a mistake to sign over the deeds !!’ ‘No Maharaj’, replies Dada, ‘we are leaving’. Dada’s test 3:  Dada’s test 3 At the outskirts of Gadhada, they rested and bathed at Radha vav (well). By now (day after funeral) news of Ebhel’s death reached surrounding towns and villages.

Lord asks ‘why?’ Sura replies ‘it is not because Ebhel has died but I am very concerned after young Dada’s welfare, and where will all the ladies take shelter?’ Dada’s test 4:  Dada’s test 4 Sura Khachar adds ‘I am not asking you to give back the kingdom, but at least keep them as servants’. Lord promptly asks Ladha Thakkar to fetch Dada… Lord tells Dada ‘I have not asked you to return to give back your kingdom, but to say that if you want your kingdom ask for it, or make out a permanent deed on copper plate since paper is easily torn’. Dada replies ‘how can you doubt that that I will not do as you ask, Maharaj?’ ……….
