“This chapter also continues the subject of the importance and effectiveness of the Udi; it also gives two cases in which Baba was tested and not found wanting. These cases will be taken up first.
Chapter XXXV – Preliminary
In spiritual matters or endeavours, sectarianism is the greatest bar to our progress. Those, who believe the God is without form, are heard saying that to believe the God is with the form is an illusion; and that the Saints are only human beings. Then why should they bow down their heads before them and offer Dakshina? Persons belonging to other sects will also raise objections and say, “Why should they bow and offer allegiance to other Saints, leaving their own Gurus?” Similar objections regarding Sai Baba were heard before and even now. Some said that when they went to Shirdi, Baba asked for Dakshina from them; is it good that Saints should collect money in this fashion? If they do so, where is their Sainthood?”
