We used to go to Haridwar with Guruji regualrly. Once when we were with Him, I was given some mantras before “Har Ki Paudi”, standing in the river Ganges. Thereafter, I had the privilege to sleep in Guruji’s room. He was sleeping on a reclining chair and I was sleeping near His Feet.
At around 1:30 A.M. , I saw Guruji going out of the room. When I turned back my face, to my utter surprise and panic, Guruji was still sleeping in the same chair. Since those were my early days with Guruji, I was terribly panicked and afraid. I just could’nt figure out as to – who went outside and who is this sleeping. My position in literal terms was “Kato to Khoon nahin”. (I was frozen in fear and surprise).
I wanted to go to the bathroom but could not move. After a mental torture of about Two hours, I saw Guruji entering the room. I pulled the sheet till over my face and saw from a corner as to what would happen next.
Then what I saw, was the most memorable, enjoyable and enigmatic experience of my entire life. I saw the figure of Guruji, who entered the room, MERGING into the figure of Guruji, sleeping on the chair in the room. Thereafter I heard the loud snores of Guruji. Then only, I could get up to go to the bathroom and heaved a sigh of relief still shaking from my experience.
After some time I got the courage to ask Him about this incident. He said “You are a fool, you should have followed me. Why did you keep on sleeping”. I simply did’nt have any answer to this as before this incident, Guruji had instructed me as : “Kabhi Guru ki chori mat karna” (Never spy on the activities of your Guru.)
