Children's Stories (Chapter 6 & 7)

Chapter 6
Samadhi in 1886
In the year 1886, on the occasion of 'Margsheersh Poornima ( full moon day)', Baba had an asthmatic attack because of which it became difficult for Him to breathe. He called Mhalsapati and said, "Oh! Disciple, I am going to meet Allah. Take care of my body for three days. If I return, I will look after my body myself otherwise you keep it near the Neem tree and keep a flag for sign”. Saying this, Baba breathed his last at 10 p.m. His pulse stopped. His body became pale and cold. In no time the news of His demise spread everywhere. People of Shirdi gathered in Dwarkamai. Senior police officials and the elders of the village came there and formed a committee. A report was made in which it was written that Baba had left his body out of his own wish to meet Allah.
Mhalsapati requested the police officers to stop and told them that Baba would return in three days but the police officers did not trust him. Mhalsapati stuck to his words and said, "Baba is not an ordinary yogi and He has many yogic powers. Therefore, it is possible for Him to be alive again. With Baba’s grace, the police officers decided to let Mhalsapati keep Baba's body for three days. Mhalsapati sat there for three days with Baba's body in his lap. On the third day suddenly, Baba's hands moved and he opened his eyes. At 3 a.m. Baba was alive again. His followers who were present there were overjoyed. All the devotees started praising Baba. Seeing the miraculous power of Baba – Mhalsapati, Bayaja Ma, Madhavrao Despande and the other people of Shirdi, started believing in Baba with great devotion and faith. This news spread even to the near by villages and as a result many people started coming from different places to see and meet Baba and take his blessings.
Bow to Sri Sai - Peace be to all
Chapter 7
Sai Baba ordered Dasganu to leave the job of a police constable. Dasganu left his job adhering to Sai Baba’s words became Baba's staunch devotee and disciple. After receiving Baba's blessings, he decided that he would lead his life singing Bhajans, hymns and praises of the Lord. Thousands of people used to gather just to hear his speech. Baba changed him from a man who used to recite baseless poems to someone who only sang the praise of the Lord. But with human beings, learning is an unending process till the last day of one's life. One's mind and brain is indecisive and never stable. We always suspect things. But on the other hand, God from time to time takes a human form and spends this life to teach us the facts and realities of life. But the vicious circle of suspicion, greed, caste and creed always surrounds us and it prevents us from being one with God.
On one occasion, Dasganu went to Shirdi to get Baba's blessing and he urged Baba to have bath at the holy river of Prayag. Baba said, "There is no need to go that far. Believe me that Prayag is here only. On Baba's uttering this, miraculously, the water from the Ganga-Yamuna started flowing from His feet. All the devotees present there observed this. Shri Dasganu bowed down in front of Baba and took some drops of the flowing holy water to sprinkle over his head. But while doing so he realized that Baba is a Muslim saint and doubted in his mind whether taking water from the feet of such a Muslim saint would be proper or not?
Children! God gives blessings to all, but it is for us to get rid of any suspicion and have immense faith in Him. Because of one's good deeds (karmas), such opportunities are obtained and therefore one should not miss such a valuable moment. Dasganu, too, always felt sorry for missing such an opportunity in life.
Bow to Sri Sai - Peace be to all
