Shirdi Diary Of GS Kharpade: Sai Saheb Sat In It And Became Converted Into A Big Cobra
We saw Sai Baba go out and I went to the Masjid on his return. He addressed me by name and said that his father was very rich, had money buried in all imaginable places. Once he had a little difference with his father when he was very young and went away to a place. It was a broad and thick cactus hedge and he found a large treasure under ground there.
Sai Saheb sat in it and became converted into a big cobra. He sat on for some time and then felt inclined to go away. So he moved away to a neighbouring village and on the way regained his human form. Then he went to a lane where they killed men. He wandered there but was left unhurt. Then he went about begging and brought all the treasure trove in.
The midday Aarti passed off as usual and when I was returning he said "Look here; be careful, some guests will come; do not admit them" all which meant that I shall have some disturbing influences and I shall with stand them.
After the midday meal I lay down for a while and then got a letter from Anna Sahib Mutalik saying that Uma has become a lady. There is the religious and the social ceremony to be per formed which means expense. Narayan Dhaman kar writes to me from Amraoti to say that they are all very hard pressed for money on all sides, so I understand the necessity of the warning given by Sai Saheb.
