While being in total control over His desires, emotions and His Super Self, Guruji would love to groom up His Shishyas too in the same manner. The process of His practice was not ordinary, it was a unique one. He noticed the weak points of His Shishyas in their prevailing day to day habits and then planned his programme to eliminate the same. His method was to pick one of the Shishyas for some specific purpose and then hit the target which was always successful to the pin point accuracy.
Like that, one incident, took place in the year 1980, never heard before. Guruji picked up His prime Shishyas, R. C. Malhotra ji and noticed his weakness and extreme love for money.
Guruji called him in His chamber and commanded him to purchase one lottery ticket which should bear the particular two digits in the last. So Malhotra ji went to the Kerala Lottery office and asked for a ticket with the desired last two digits. The dealer gave him a fresh book authorizing him to take out the one he wanted. Malhotra ji found and purchased the ticket worth Re.1/- With intimation to Guruji.
After a few days Guruji called Malhotra ji and asked to show the ticket as this was the day of announcement of the result. Guruji took the news paper in hand and asked Malhotra ji to hold the ticket and tally the number. Malhotra ji jumped with joy and said, Guruji we have won the second prize of rupees 50,000/-. Guruji also expressed His happiness and took the ticket from him to see.
After taking the ticket in hands, Guruji tore it into two and gave one part to Malhotra ji saying, “Lo beta, 50% of the ticket is yours and the other 50% is mine because we both shared 50 paise each for it’s purchase”.
Malhotra ji never expected such an act at the hand of Guruji & he screamed, “Guruji ! What have you done ?” He seemed quite upset & further said, “You have ruined 50,000/ rupees Guruji, see to the value of such a big amount & you have made it garbage !”
Now was the turn of Guruji. He was calm and composed. He looked into the eyes of his Shishya and started, “Maine tumhein insaan se bhagwaan banaa diya aur tum wahien sansaari ichhaon se ghire hooe ho? ” ( I have escalated you so high above the worldly affairs and desires that people come and pray and you fulfill their demands which include monetary problems as well and you are still trapped in the effect of gains & losses ?) Malhotra ji realized and understood what Guruji wanted to. This untold method of Guruji belonged to Guruji only. There is no such practical evidence where a big amount was scratched & converted to zero for the up liftment of the Shishyas. I assume, Rs.50,000-/ in the year 1980, i.e. 30 years back must have been multi fold and in many lacs of today’s value.
Such is the roop of the world’s highest, “My Guruji” countless prostrations,
Hey Mahaguru Dev.
