“Now let us turn to the stories of this chapter.
Once it so happened that, a devotee by name Pant, a disciple of another Guru, had the good fortune of visiting Shirdi. He had no mind to go to Shirdi, but man proposes one way and God disposes the other. He was travelling in a B.B. & C.I. Rly. train, where he met many friends bound for Shirdi. They all asked him to accompany them and he could not say ‘no’. They alighted at Mumbai, while Pant got down at Virar. There, he took the permission of his Guru for the Shirdi trip and after arranging for the expenses, left with the party for Shirdi. They all reached there in the morning and went to the Masjid at about 11 a.m.
On seeing the concourse of the devotees assembled for Baba’s worship, they were all pleased but Pant suddenly got a fit and fell senseless. They were all frightened, still they tried their best to revive his senses. With Baba’s grace after sprinkling water over his head, he regained his consciousness and sat upright as if he was just awakened from sleep.
The Omniscient Baba, knowing that he was a disciple of another Guru, assured him and confirmed his faith in his own Guru, by addressing him as follows: “Come what may, leave not but stick to your own bolster (support, i.e. Guru) and ever remain steady with him.” Pant, at once, knew the significance of this remark, and thus he was reminded of his Guru. This kindness of Baba, he never forgot in his life.”
