Important Extracts from ” Tuchi Baap Dhani “
“I Have Given You Everthing, There Is Nothing To Give Now”
My first meeting with Shree Maharaj took place some where in the month of Bhadrapad (September – October) of 1957. At that time, there was a vacancy of a priest in the Pune Math (temple shrine) of Shree Baba Maharaj. My brother-in-law Ved Murty (learned Priest) Bhaskar Dattatreya Karambalekar, priest took me to Shree Maharaj .
After 2-3 days of the above meeting, I started coming to the Math (temple-shrine) for performing pooja (religious service) in the Math (temple-shrine). Form that day onwards till today, I continue to come to the Math for religious service.
After the Panshet inundation (flood) at Pune, I was saved by Shree Maharaj only from the extreme circumstances. He used to say “I will show you the mirror”. Further, he told me to discontinue the relations with brothers and sisters temporarily. By doing so I could understand their inner motive. After fifteen days he told me to restore the relations, if desired by me. But during those fifteen days whatever experience I got was certainly a lesson Shree Maharaj wanted to teach me.
At present, whatever excellent state we are having was entirely due to Shree Maharaj only. While worshipping one’s preceptor on the full moon day (Poornima) of Ashadha month (month of July-August) he used to say “I have given you everything. Now there is nothing worthy to give” But till now I have not understood the meaning of above.
