It is a fabricated story of those belonging to Damakheda that salvation is only possible in Kalyug through the native seat of the lineage, and every mahant of the native seat stays on the seat for 25 years 20 days.
The redactor of the present Kabir Sagar Shri Yuglanand Bihari (publisher and printer – Khemraj Shri Krishan Das, Shri Venkateshwar Press, Mumbai) is also a follower of Dhamakheda. In Kabir Sagar in Kabir Charitr Bodh (Bodh Sagar), the writer has written that it is a rule of the forty-two vanshs (descendents) of Dharmdas ji that every descendent may sit on the native seat for twenty-five years and twenty days and relinquish his body at will. Nobody should remain on the seat for any time more or less than this. This is also written that at present this very practice is going on.
There is description in book
“Dharmdas Jeevan Darshan Evam Vansh Parichay” on Page no. 32 to 49: -
1 First Churamani ji stayed on native seat of Kudurmal named place from 1570 to 1630 for 60 years.
2 Second Sudarshan ji stayed on native seat of Ratanpur named place from 1630 to 1690 for 60 years.
3 Third Kulpat Naam ji stayed on native seat of Kudurmal named place from 1690 to 1750 for 60 years.
4 Fourth Pramod Guru Bala Peer ji stayed on native seat of Mandla named place from 1750 to 1804 for 54 years.
5 Fifth Keval Naam ji stayed on native seat of Dhamdha from 1804 to 1824 for 20 years.
6 Sixth Amol Naam ji stayed on native seat of Mandla named place from 1824 to 1846 for 22 years.
7 Seventh Surat Sanehi ji stayed on native seat of Singhari named place from 1846 to 1871 for 25 years.
8 Eighth stayed on native seat of Kavardha named place from 1872 to 1890 for 18 years.

10 Tenth stayed on native seat of Kavardha named place from 1912 to 1939 for 27 years.
11 Eleventh did not sit on a native seat because he died at the age of two.
12 Twelfth Ugr Naam Saheb ji sat on the native seat in Samvat 1953 and died in Samvat 1971. Abandoning Kavardha place for 18 years lived in Damakheda by himself forming a native seat and for 14 years from Samvat 1939 to 1953 stayed the panth vansh (successor of a panth) of a place named Damakheda without a panth.
13 The thirteenth vansh Dayanam Saheb stayed on the native seat of Damakheda named place from Samvat 1971 to 1984 for 13 years.
Important It is evident from the above-mentioned description that it is a fabricated story of those belonging to Damakheda that salvation is only possible in Kalyug through the native seat of the lineage, and every mahant of the native seat stays on the seat for 25 years 20 days. And then by making another the heir, relinquishes his body. Neither less time nor more, but only stays for 25 years 20 days; this has been proved wrong because in the above-mentioned description, nobody on the native seat kept the time of 25 years 20 days. Someone stayed on the native seat for 60 years, some 54, 22, 27, or total 25 or 18 years.
