Guruji had set some important disciplines which all of us are supposed to follow for the benefit of spiritual attainments as well as for and pleasureful & comfortable living. Not to shave on Thursdays is one of the disciplines.
It was a Thursday and I was taking my bath. By mistake, I shaved and realized it immediately. The public had come to sthan and i was to do seva. Before going in the Sthan room, I rushed straight to Gurgaon and reached Guruji’s bedroom.
Guruji and Mataji were still in bed. I dashed my head under his comforter and held his feet. A few minutes passed and Guruji noticed that i was stuck under his comforter. Guru ji loudly said, ”chal, baahar aajaa ab”
I spoke, “pahle muaff karo phir baahar aoonga” (first pardon me, then I will come out).
Guruji asked me what wrong had I done ? But, I said, “ muaff karo ge to bataoonga.”
In the meantime Mataji started laughing and requested Guruji, “chalo kar do na muaff, baccha hi to hai” –( ok ! Forgive him, he is a child after all)
But Guruji said to Mata ji, “par bataaye to sahi, ki, kar ke kya aaya hai, ma da khasam ?” (but he should tell me atleast what he has done ?) But some how Mata ji made him agree and Guru ji said, ”achha, ja, muaff kiya, ab baahar nikal. Par bataa to de“
I said, from under the cover, “Guruji I shaved today by mistake and it is Thursday. Par aap ne muaff to kar hi diya hai na Guru ji ?” (But Guruji you have already pardoned me no?)
A strict disciplinarian, as Guruji is and what a liberal and broad minded heart he posesses.
