Vinayak Rawool (Anna):
The administration of Mutt today is looked after by his utmost devotee vinayakanna Dattaram Rawool. He is responsible for giving Pinguli a status of Rawool Nagri, where between 1986 to 2002, Gaurishankar Temple, Audumbar Mauli Temple, Sabha Mandap, Maruti Mandir, Deepmali and Gurukrupa Temple were erected. Anna says that devotees who never had an opportunity to see the glimpse of Maharaj, but has actual feeling and willingness to carry out duties, obligations and moral values set by Maharaj, has helped him to look after all this.
