(4) Waman Narvekar
“Now let the readers hear a different story. A gentleman, named Waman Narvekar loved Baba very much. He once brought a rupee. On one said (obverse) of it were engraved the figures of Rama, Laxman and Sita and on the other (reverse) side was engraved the figure of Maruti, with folded hands. He offered it to Baba with a hope that He should consecrate it with His touch and return it to him with Udi. But Baba immediately pocketed it. Then Shama spoke to Baba, regarding Womanrao’s intention and requested Him to return it.
Then Baba spoke in the presence of Wamanrao, “Why should it be returned to him? We should keep it ourselves. If he gives Rs.25/- for it, it will be returned.” Then, for the sake of that rupee, Wamanrao collected Rs.25/- and placed them before Baba. Then Baba said, “The value of that rupee far exceeds 25 Rupees. Shama, take this rupee, let us have it in our store, keep this in your shrine and worship it.”
No one had the courage to ask Baba why He followed this peculiar action. He only knows what is best and most suitable to each and all.”
