Baba’s All-pervasiveness and Mercy
“In the year 1910, Baba was sitting near the Dhuni on Diwali holiday and warming Himself. He was putting fire-wood into the Dhuni, which was burning brightly. A little later, instead of pushing logs of woods, Baba pushed His arm into the Dhuni, His arm was scorched and burnt. This was noticed by the errand boy Madhava and also by Madhavrao Deshpande (Shama). They, at once, ran to Baba and Madhavarao clasped Baba, by His waist from behind and dragged Him forcibly backward and asked, “Deva, why You done this?” .
Then Baba came to His senses and replied, “The wife of a blacksmith at some distant place, was working the bellows of a furnace; her husband called her, forgetting that her child was on her lap, she got up hastily and the child slipped into the furnace. I immediately thrust My hand into the furnace and saved the child. I do not mind My arm being burnt but, I am glad that the life of the child is saved.”
