After Muktinath, Neelkanth met Mohandas who was attached to Neelkanth's water-pot. Neelkanth shattered the attachment and told him to meet him in Gujarat (where he was later initiated as Shree Sahjanand Swami).
Neelkanth then went to Butolnagar, where King Mahadutt and his sister, Queen Maya insisted that Neelkanth stay with them. When Neelkanth left the first time, the king's soldiers brought Neelkanth back to the kingdom. Neelkanth stayed for several months, leaving after celebrating Janmasthami on August 18, 1794.
In October 1794, in the forests of Nepal, Neelkanth met Gopal Yogi, whom He stayed with for about a year. Neelkanth mastered ashtaanga (eight-fold) yoga, and left after performing Gopal Yogi's cremation rites.
In Kathmandu (capital of Nepal), Neelkanth cured King Ranbahadur of his stomach ailment, thus freeing the saints that the king had imprisoned. After 1 month, Neelkanth continued his journey, crossing into Tibet, and then back through Nepal.
