Normally an efficient person of respective village or zone are given responsibility to be a representative of that respective Padathara. This is a place mean the house (home) of that representative without any extra facility some social, cultural & religion occasions as like offering (presenting) a TULSIMALA (Kanthi) to a new born baby in the family of Uda Bhakts, simple celebration of occasion of our tradition in the gathering local resident (occasion like RAMNAVMI, JANAMASHTAMI SAMA PANCHAM etc.) every local family will bring prasad of "SUKHADI" (a sweet made of Wheat flour, Jaggery and Ghee). They sing some occasional spiritual poems. Finally the PRASAD of all Bhakta are mixed and distributed equally in all. The Padathara representative has to provide the place, carpet and water only. none else. There is no financial burden on him to perform the role of Padatharas Bhakta. But he is not called the Guru (Momentous) inspite of offering KANTHI and place for celebrating the event. He do all acts behalf of Sadguru Shri Kabirji.
