Sai Sat Charitra, Chapter 36-Part I (Continued)

By Super Admin

Continued From The First Page

The story finished and Baba asked Shama to take the guests and arrange for their feeding. Then Shama took them home and fed them. At dinner, Shama told the guests that Baba's story was rather mysterious, as He had never gone to the sea-side, never had any money (Rs.30,000/-), never travelled, never lost any money and never recovered it, and enquired whether they understood it and caught its significance. The guests were deeply moved and were shedding tears. In a choking voice they said that Baba was omniscient, infinite, the One (Para Brahma) without a second. The story He gave out is exactly our story, What He spoke has already taken place in our case. How He knew this, is a wonder of wonders! We shall give all the details after the meals.

Sai Ram. Once the walls of the ego (sense of identification with body and mind) are broken, the individual becomes one with the Universe. These powers come naturally to realised souls like Sai. Sai Ram.

Then after the meals while they were chewing betel-leaves,the guests began to tell their stories. One of them said:-

"A hill-station on the ghats is my native place. I went to Goa to earn my living by securing a job. I took a vow to God Datta that if I got any service, I would offer Him my first month's salary. By His grace I got an appointment of Rs.15/- and then I got promotions as described by Baba. I did forget all about my vow. Baba has just reminded me of it in this way and recovered Rs. 15/- from me. It is not Dakshina as one may think it to be, but a repayment of an old debt and fulfillment of long forgotten vow".

Sai Ram. Sai thus indicated that He is One with Datta, just as He indicated His Oneness with other Gods like Rama and other Gurus (as we have seen in earlier chapters). Sai Ram.
