Wresting Bout with Mohiddin Tamboli and Change in Life
“There was a wrestler in Shirdi, by name Mohiddin Tamboli. Baba and he did not agree on some points, and both had a fight. In this Baba was defeated. Thenceforth, Baba changed His dress and mode of living. He donned Kafni, wore a Langot (waist band) and covered His head with a piece of cloth. He took a piece of sack-cloth for His bed, and was content with wearing torn and worn out rags.
He always said that, “Poverty is better than kingship, far better than Lordship. The Lord is always brother (befriender) of the poor.” Gangagir was also very fond of wrestling. Once while he was wrestling, a similar feeling of dispassion descended over him, and at the proper time he heard the voice of an adept saying that he should wear out his body, playing with God. So he too gave up Sansara and turned towards God-realization. He established a Math on the banks of the river, near Puntambe, and lived there with his disciples.”
