Shama’s Sister-in-law

“Shama’s younger brother, Bapaji, was staying near Sawli well. Once his wife was attacked with bubonic plague. She had high fever and two bubos in her groins. Bapaji rushed to Shama at Shirdi and asked him to come and help. Shama was frightened, but according to his wont (custom), he went to Baba, prostrated himself before Him, invoked His aid, by requesting Him to cure the case. He also asked His permission to go to his brother’s house. Then Baba said, “Don’t go there at this late hour, send her the Udi. Why care for the fever and bubos? God is our father; she will be alright easily. Do not go now, but go there in the morning and return immediately.”

Shama had full faith in Baba’s Udi. It was sent with Bapaji. It was applied on the bubos and some of it was mixed with water given to the patient to drink. No sooner was it taken in, perspiration set in profusely, the fever abated and the patient had a sound sleep. Next morning, Bapaji was surprised to see his wife alright, with no fever and bubos. When Shama went there next morning with Baba’s permission, he was also surprised to see her in the kitchen preparing tea. On questioning his brother he learnt that, Baba’s Udi cured her completely in one night. Then Shama realized the significance of Baba’s words. “Go there in the morning and return immediately.

After taking tea, Shama returned and after saluting Baba said, “Deva, what is this play of Yours? You first raise a storm and make us restless and then calm it down and comfort us.” Baba replied “You see mysterious is the path of action. Though I do nothing, they hold Me responsible for the actions which take place on account of Prarabdh (destiny). I am only their witness. The Lord is the Sole Doer and Inspirer. He is most merciful. Neither I am God, nor Master. I am His obedient servant and remember Him constantly. He, who casts aside his egoism, thanks Him and he, who trusts Him entirely, will have his shackles removed and will obtain liberation.”
