Let us pray to our Sadguru Sai Baba first :
First of all we humbly bow to Shri Sai Baba. We pray that His Presence, Grace and Love always be with us. His Protection and Guidance be always with us. We pray that He awakens His love within us. For He is the real love and He is the real life. Sai is Sat, Chit and Ananda.
M. G Pradhan was a clerk in Collector’s office. His interview was about his experiences with devotees was taken on 23rd September 1936.
We will read this devotee’s experiences with Shirdi Sai Baba in short story from for few days. Om Sai Ram.
He was fortunate to hear about Sai Baba. But before that he had a tragic experience. He had lost his 7 years old child named Dattatreya. His mind was greatly upset. Even in the midst of this tragic experience, he thought about visiting Shirdi and see Sai Baba.
And one day he had a dream. He saw five Sadhus seated. He went to one of them and asked, “Which one of you is Sai Baba?, and he pointed to one among them.
It did not take longer for his visit to Shirdi. He was soon on the way to Shirdi taking along with him some fruits like Sitaphal and Ramphal from his owned garden.
He reached Shirdi and to his amazement he realised that the person whom he saw in the dream was sitting right in front of him, the Generous Guru Sai Baba.
He was about to get some shocking treatment from Sai Baba for his own good. Baba got in rage and began to scold him, “Why does the fool go on with the grief of losing his son? It is merely going to the earth. The body must go back to the earth. Why continue lamenting for that?”
Again after sometime Baba said, ” Scatter the Ramphal far and wide.”
To the above statement M. G. Pradhan said that he understood it as, “Scatter the knowledge after you receive it”.
