I remember, when Guruji once told me that instead of reaching immediately, it takes Him three minutes to reach Bombay.
It was 1991 when Guruji called Sunny (Punchu’s husband ) in his room at Punjabi Bagh. After giving him spiritual powers, He commanded him to start Seva at his newly purchased house in Bombay.
So people started coming to the new Sthaan where a young faquir started afresh. Sunny was too young for such a big task and that too with a little experience of the past. With great enthusiasm he started Seva and as per grace of Guruji, the people started coming to bow down at Sthaan and then to take blessings from him. The Sthaan as well as his house were at a location controlled by a christian society as well as it was just opposite the church. A warning letter was delivered to stop such an act which appeared to be religious, but not concerning to christianity. They further threatened that they will never allow to perform Seva and make langar or “Khichdi prasad ” and feed the people here as this was exclusively a christian colony.
Before Sunny went to sleep, he was acutely disturbed. He prayed to Guruji that he was acting as per His command and further pleaded for help to handle the situation. As he switched off the awakening state, he saw a vision:–
Sai Baba of Shidri was sitting on his bed with his conventional dhoti kurta and the small beard; but the hair of his beard was shorter than what we see in his pictures. He started saying, “Bus ! Itne mein hi ghabra gaya? Mujhe to logon ne patthar tak maare thei ”. (Is that all what has disturbed your mind ? To me, people even threw stones at me ). But Sunny could not be comfortable, so, baba further said, “Achha, toa aaj ke baad tumhein koi pareshaan nahin karega, yeh mera vaada hai”. (All right! No body shall disturb you hence forth, this is my promise). Since then no letter or any complaint was ever received there. Till today, the Seva is continued without any interruption, even after lapse of about 20 years.
I remember, when Guruji once told me that instead of reaching immediately, it takes him three minutes to reach Bombay. The reason being that He has to stop on the way at two places, one–a muslim faqir at ajmer and the other— Sai Baba at shidri. Guruji said, “Yeh meri intezar karte hein, kyeon ki in dono ko mere programmes ka pata hota hai.”
(These two wait for me because they are aware of my programmes) so its clear that Guruji sent sai baba to handle the situation, which he did accomplish in a wonderful spiritual way.
