Breaking of the Brick

“Some days before Baba’s departure, there occurred an ominous sign foreboding the event. There was, in the Masjid, an old brick on which Baba rested His hand and sat. At night time, He leaned against it and had His Asan. This went on for many years. One day, during Baba’s absence, a boy who was sweeping the floor, took it up in his hand, and unfortunately it slipped and fell down and got broken into two pieces. When Baba came to know about this, He bemoaned its loss, saying: “It is not the brick, but My fate, that has been broken into pieces. It was My life-long companion, with it I always meditated on the Self, it was as dear to Me as My life, it has left Me today.”

Some may raise here a question, “Why should Baba express this sorrow for such an inanimate thing as a brick?” To this, Hemadpant replies that saints incarnate in this world with the express mission of saving the poor helpless people, and when they embody themselves and act with the people, they act like them, i.e., outwardly they laugh, play and cry like all other people, but inwardly they are wide awake to their duties and mission.”
