Guruji blessed her and tenderly offered her to sit on the bed. She was shaken and immediately replied, “Nahin- nahin, meri jagah yeh hai” and she sat on the floor.
There is nothing normal in this area of life. Every thing what ever happens, appears to be happening for the first time; but it’s a reputation and some time its multi fold. So it is a continuity of the past and may be that the person whom we think we are meeting for the first time, is the one whom we have already met in the past. The relationship of our past and the present might have changed along with the change in body and the place, but the soul remains to be same. Almost none, memories; but some spiritually enlightened persons are privileged to recognize even though the body and place have changed. I think this is “Pahchaan”. This means a registration in mind and soul needing no confirmation, it looks to be sure. This is too rare and is exclusively confined to deservers of Guru kripa.. But how and from where it comes, is a subject in the jurisdiction of Guruji and Guruji only.
So– Guruji was in Bombay. People had been waiting down stairs, in the living room as well as out side in the drive way. Guruji was sitting on the bed of Sandeep Sethi in his room on the first floor while I was standing for getting his time to time commands when people were called in for His kripa.
Just then a message came that a big lady saint desires to have Guruji’s darshans. After about 10 minutes Guruji called her. In fact I knew that lady well. She was a saint having enough following in Bombay with many people coming to her ashram in the mornings & evenings for prayers and for her spiritual discourses. She was called.
She came in along with her two Shishyas and bowed down to the holiest feet of my universe.
Guruji blessed her and tenderly offered her to sit on the bed. She was shaken and immediately replied, “Nahin- nahin, meri jagah yeh hai” and she sat on the floor. (No – no, that is not my place and she sat flat on the floor).
Since I was acquainted with the life she lived, I realized some thing more than strange. I never expected her for such an attitude and behavior. So humble she was though she had hundreds of people bowing down to her in her life !
I forced myself to understand such a change in her.
Then I realized, she has recognized the real being of “Guruji”. Itni badi pehchaan ? (Such a calibre of recognizing )?
How — I wish to know but don’t know.
