One day, a devotee asked Baba to show him God. Then Baba sent a boy to Bagchand Marwadi for a loan of Rs.100/- but the boy returned and reported that the Marwadi had no money and that he wanted his namaskaras to be conveyed to Baba instead. Then Baba sent the boy to another money lender but the reponse was the same. Then Baba sent for Nana Chandorkar and asked him for Rs.100/-, Nana sent a chit to Bagchand Marwadi who at once sent the amount. Baba said to the visiter who wanted to be shown God, ” Everythings is just like this in this world.”
When Baba sent for the money it was not forth coming; for Baba was a fakir and the money-lender was afraid that the amount may not repaid. When Nana, a big officer, wanted, it was promptly sent. One must deserve before one can ask for anything.
And that was Baba’s lesson.
Bow to Sri Sai – Peace be to all !
