Bayajabai’s Brilliant Service
“Tatya Kote’s mother, Bayajabai, used to go to the woods every noon with a basket on her head containing bread and vegetables. She roamed in the jungles kos (about 3 miles) after kos, trampling over bushes and shrubs in search of the mad Fakir, and after finding Him, fell at His Feet. The Fakir sat calm and motionless in meditation, while she placed a leaf before Him, spread the things – eatables, bread, vegetables etc. thereon, and fed Him. Wonderful was her faith and service.
Every day she roamed at noon in the jungles and insisted on Baba to the partake of the lunch. Her service, Upasana or penance, by whatever name we call it, was never forgotten by Baba till His Maha Samadhi. Remembering fully what service she rendered, Baba benefited her son significantly. Both the son and the mother, had great faith in the Fakir, Who was their God. Baba often said to them that, “Fakiri (mendicacy) is real, Lordship (riches) is transient.” After some years, Baba stopped going into the woods and began to live in the village, and take His food in the Masjid thus, Bayajabai’s troubles of roaming in the jungles ended.”
