Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade: As Usual Baba Treated Us With Positive Kindness
In the morning I got up as usual, prayed, and commenced the daily routine with Paramamrit. It is a very celebrated Marathi work on Vedanta. Upasani reads; I, Bapu Sahib Jog, Bhishma listen. It is exceedingly nice and I give explanations whenever necessary. I was able to see Sai Maharaj go out but was late in going to see him after he returned to masjid.
He not only showed no displeasure but treated me with positive kindness and I sat serving. The midday aarti was late as Megha is ill and was not ordered to come soon. He did so at last and by the time we returned and had our meals it was nearly 4p.m. Dixit read a little of Ramayana and then we went to see Sai Sahib at the masjid.
He did not permit us to sit long and came out himself and finished his usual stroll in a hurry and ordered us to return to the wada. We could not understand it, but on returning to the Wada learnt that Hari, a servant of Dixit, who felt indisposed the other day, died.
We sent for Upasani who understands medicine but he could not be found. That the man was dead, there could be no doubt. We did the usual Aarti in the Wada and attended the Shej Aarti. Sai Maharaj was particularly gracious at the latter and sent out wonderful cements of joy and instruction. He favoured Rama Maruti similarly.
