Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade: Baba Blessed Everyone Sitting In Dwarkamai
I got up as usual, prayed, and sat talking with Durvesh Saheb. He said he had a vision in which he saw three girls and a blind woman knock at his door. He asked them who they were and they replied that they had come to amuse themselves.
Thereupon he ordered them out on pain of being kicked and began a prayer. The girls and the old woman ran away on hearing the words of the prayer. He then blessed all in the room and in the house and the whole village. He asked me to ask Sai Saheb.
When I went to see the latter on his return to the Masjid and before I was fairly seated. Sai Saheb commenced a story. He said he was beaten last night by something on his private parts and hands, that he applied oil, wandered about, had a stool, and then felt better near the fire. I shampooed his legs and on my return told the story to Durvesh Saheb.
The answer was clear. After the Midday Aarti I sat reading Bhavartha Ramayan and then, later on, saw Sai Saheb near the Chawadi, and later on again at Shej Aarti at Chawadi. Then we had Bhishma's Bhajan and Ram Maruti's gesticulations. Later still, Mr. Dixit read Ramayana.
