Land line telephone was the only service available in those days when Guruji went to Nagpur on his official tour. So this episode relates to Nagpur where a unique and unprecedented miracle took place.
In the arranged premises where Guruji and His other staff members stayed, one room was additional and was utilized as office, for their records and equipment. The telephone was installed in that room only. The design of that room was that of an old time construction where windows would have iron bars meant for security purposes. The wooden shutters were generally left open and the inside of the room was accessible from out side through the iron bars. One staff member would lock the office door in the night and then reopen it in the morning to resume their office work. This was a routine.
Guruji had scheduled His mornings for receiving calls from Delhi or elsewhere from His Shishyas and after that He would go in the fields for soil survey etc. One day, the staff memberwho had locked the room in the night, returned from his morning walk and was surprised to see through the window that Guruji was busy in talking to some one on telephone. He just looked at the door which was locked and found the keys also in his pocket.
he screamed from out side and asked— “Guruji, Aap ander kaise gaye, chaabi to mere pass hai ?” (How did your get in when the door is locked from out side and the keys are still with me ?)
Guruji looked at him through the window and said, “Beta, telephone ki ghanti baj rahi thi to maine telephone uthaya aur baat karne laga. (My child, the phone bell was ringing so I took up the receiver and started talking).
The staff member said, “But Guruji, the door is still locked from outside, how could you go in ?) With a child like expression on face, Guruji said, “I don’t know, I heard the phone bell ringing and came to the telephone through the door which was open, not closed.”
The staff further said, “But Guruji, the door is still locked and here are the keys in my hands”. Without giving any answer to him, Guruji changed the topic and said, “Ok ! Ok! Open the door now, I have to go to bathroom”. All standing there got stunned and could not believe their eyes. Guruji was inside the room while the door was locked from out side.
The miracle turned to be a mystery and remains a mystery till date. When ever some one asked to reveal the secret of his entering the closed room, Guruji smiled and changed the topic. I assume that His smile has an important message, “You idiots, you still are unaware as to who I am ? And that you are putting the kindergarten questions?” If I take Him as a human being, my question is valid. But if I conceive that He is God then the question is invalid, because God has no barriers. Seek your extreme help Guruji—
Please hold me tight, Guruji. I can know thee, exclusively to thy will Sahib ji.
Shower… shower your blessings and allow me to bathe in the divine shower of your grace every moment of my life.
