Shirdi Diary by Shri G.S.Khaparde - Part 1

1910 December 6 Tuesday

Shirdi

In the morning, the poor woman Tai was much discussed & they blamed her. I feel pity for her insanity. I had a walk, & after bath we all saw Sayin Maharaj going out with an embroidered big umbrella held over his head. Later on we went to Masjid. Sayin Maharaj was talking. He said speaking to himself there is no use being threatened. It does no good. Why should we threaten?

There are very high officers of God. They are very powerful. The same thing was repeated very often. He appeared somewhat excited. Then he got up, distributed the food accumulated there, and after giving udi-ashes requested us to withdraw. We did so. The midday meal was not served nearly half-past two in the afternoon. After it we sat talking, saw Sayin Maharaj in the evening when he came out for a walk. Later on we went to the Chavadi where Sayin Maharaj sleeps tonight. He was accompanied by the Umbrella of State, silver stick, chavaris & fans etc. The place was tastefully lighted. The lady who is known as Radha Krishna came out with lights. She is related to Babasaheb Deshpande of Ahmednagar. I saw her from a distance. Madhavrao Deshpande said he would be away tomorrow & return the day after. He asked for & obtained Sayin Maharaja ’s permission to go.

told him that he should rest assured that the story would be told before he left. I asked him why he was angry yesterday & he replied that it was because the Teli said something. Then I asked why he cried out “Do not beat. Do not beat ” today at the time of the distribution of food & he replied that he cried out because the Patil family was quarrelling & divided among themselves. Sayin Saheb spoke with such wonderful sweetness and he smiled so often & with such extraordinary grace, that the conversation will always remain engraved in my memory. Unfortunately other

1910, 7 December Wednesday
Shirdi.
In the morning after my prayer Balasaheb Bhate who is a retired Mamlatdar came to the Wada & sat talking with us. He has been staying here for sometime, & has a peculiar kind of calm on his face.

We saw Sayin Maharaj as he was going out & went to him in the Masjid in the afternoon. I, Babasaheb Sahasrabuddhe, my son Baba, Bapusaheb Jog, & children went together & sat there. Sayin Maharaj appeared to be in good humour. He asked Babasaheb Sahasrabuddhe whether he came from Bombay. Babasaheb replied in the affirmative. Babasaheb was then asked whether he would return to Bombay. He again replied in the affirmative, but added that he could not be certain of remaining there, as it would depend upon circumstances. Sayin Maharaj remarked “Yes. It is true, you have many things on hand & have to undertake more. You should remain here some four or five days. You will be here, you should see for yourself. The experiences gone through are real. They are not fanciful. I was here thousands years ago. ”Then Sayin Maharaj turned to me & started on apparently a new track. He said “This world is funny. All are my subjects. I look upon all equally, but some have become thieves and what can I do for them? People who are themselves very near death, desire & make preparations for the death of others. They offended me a great deal. They hurt me a good deal but I said nothing. I kept quiet. God is very great & has his officers every where. They are all powerful. One must be content with the state in which God keeps him. But I am very powerful. I was here eight or ten thousand years ago.” My son asked him to tell a story as he told him before.

Sayin Maharaj asked what story it was. My son replied that it was a story about three brothers who went to a Masjid. One of them wished to go out and beg. The others did not want him to do that on the ground that the food obtained by begging would be impure and would pollute their chowka. The third brother replied that if the food spoiled the chowka, his legs should be cut off & so on. Sayin Maharaj said it was a very good story. He would tell another when he was in the humour. My son said he did not know when the thing would happen, & if the humour recurred after he let, there would not be much use. Thereupon-Sayin Saheb told

told him that he should rest assured that the story would be told before he left. I asked him why he was angry yesterday & he replied that it was because the Teli said something. Then I asked why he cried out “Do not beat.

other people came & the conversation was interrupted. We were so sorry for it but it could not be helped. We returned talking about it. Tatyasaheb Nulkar was not present during the first part of the conversation but came later on. Balasaheb Bhate came in the evening & we sat again talking about the conversation.
