House of Dr. Harry Zeltzer, which Shri Nathji visited.

These are actual photographs of the house 9, Rumford Road, in Lexington, Massachusetts, which was the residence of Shri Nathji’s devotee Dr. Harry Zeltzer in Cambridge, USA.

In America, Shri Nathji’s mission found ultimate fulfilment in Dr. Harry Zeltzer, and his wife, Lois Zeltzer. The husband was of Jewish faith, and the wife was a Catholic. It was an ideal combination for Shri Nathji, because no one had accepted him more readily than the Jews and the Catholics in the West.
Priya Nath had met him at a dinner party, and had told him about Shri Nathji. "Is he here, in America?" Dr. Zeltzer asked. When Priya Nath told him that Shri Nathji was in America, a spark of happiness lit up within him. It was as if he was nearing his goal. He invited Shri Nathji to his house. When the invitation reached Shri Nathji, he said:
"This is the man I was waiting for! My work in America has now ended. I travelled thousands of miles from the East at the calling of thirsty souls, and until I have satiated the thirst of the last of them, I cannot leave. They come to me when the time is ripe for them, and I must wait till that time."
 At Harry Zeltzer’s house, Shri Nathji said: "Harry, you do not know me, but I know
Similar words had been used by Lord Krishna for Arjuna when he said: "Arjuna, you and I have been born many times. I remember the births while you do not."
Shri Nathji used to say: "A mother can recognise her child, even if the child fails to recognise his mother. The stage of atheism is akin to the ignorance of a child. As time passes, and the child becomes aware of his surroundings, understanding begins to develop and he can call his mother: ‘Mother’!"
Harry Zeltzer and his wife gave a tastefully prepared dinner to Shri Nathji and Priya Nath. After the dinner they asked Shri Nathji to sit in one of the finest chairs they had in their drawing room, which was of Japanese make.
 He thought the chair, which looked like a throne, had been made for Shri Nathji. Shri Nathji looked grand and exotic sitting on the chair, as if he was an Emperor who had come into his own.
 That night Harry and Lois had a strange experience. They could swear they heard Shri Nathji calling out to them. It was his voice and his accent. "Harry!" went the voice, "Lois!" Shri Nathji was miles away in his home at Lowell Street, Cambridge, while the Zeltzers were at 9, Rumford Road, in Lexington, Massachusetts.
 Nawab Istafa Khan had had this unusual experience in Mussoorie in the early 1930's, when he had heard Shri Nathji calling out to him in the middle of the night: "Istafa! Istafa!"
The voice was not from the ordinary plane. It was the voice of the Universal Soul calling out to the individual soul. It was the voice of the Ocean calling out to the drop of water. The next day, Dr. Zeltzer came to see Shri Nathji at Lowell Street in Cambridge. Shri Nathji spoke for five hours at a stretch–the longest he had ever spoken to anyone in America.
He was pouring his divine self into the innermost depths of Zeltzer’s being; he was filling a vacuum in Zeltzer’s life–a vacuum that had existed only for God.
Actual Photographs of the house are taken from the street. Close up aerial photos and Small scale satellite photos are also taken from different angles. As we can see that this areas has thick vegetation and greenery, Also I have superimposed the map of Lexington, in one satellite photo so that its exact location can be ascertained. The house is marked as A in some photos, for the purpose of identification.
