I was sitting at Sitaram ji’s house at Janak Puri and was striking a deal with someone for selling my old car.
Just then Guruji called over the phone and asked me, “What are you doing here?” I said, “Guruji, I am selling my car” Guruji asked me “For How Much”, and I replied, “The buyer has offered 40 thousand and I am demanding 45 thousand.” To this Guruji said, “Sell it for 39 thousand.”
When I asked the buyer for 39 thousand, he felt as if I was annoyed and got prepared to pay more than 40 thousand. I politely said, “Nothing doing, I can’t sell it for more than 39 thousand.” He could not understand and enquired the reason for my attitude.
I said, since I was given a command over the phone I had to abide by that. He was astonished and wanted to know whose command it was. I said, “This was from the controller of my mind and action, my body and soul. He is my Guruji.”
The buyer was shocked at my behaviour, but was extremely happy to have my car at a lower price than his budget. With this command Guruji had granted a double boon to his Shishya, firstly, He made the buyer give endless duayen (good wishes) and secondly, the Shishya became dearer to His Guru with an act, as this.
What he gained is for one to understand.
