Without taking the refuge of a Tatvdarshi Sant true worship cannot be obtained. Today in 2022, Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj is the only Tatvdarshi Sant in the entire universe. Everyone should take Initiation (Naam Diksha) from Sant Rampal Ji and should safeguard themselves from the evils and deadly diseases. Because Sat-Bhakti is the only Vaccine that guarantees safety.
