Letter #33 : Shri Baliram Rajeshirke, Sawarde

Extract from the letter written by Shree Maharaj to Shri Baliram Rajeshirke, Sawarde ., published in Third edition of ‘Tuchi Baap Dhani’

Chi. Shri Baliram, Best of the Blessings of Shree Swamikrupa.- Special reason to write a letter to you is that while returning (from Dervan) I had firmly told you that if you want to work at the place of Shree Seetarambuwa (TRUST) and if you are in the need of the job then you will have to observe the rules as I have already told you.

Three times in a month after every ten days you can go to your home in the evening and (you must) return in the morning next day at 7.30 Am.; and that also if there is no urgent requirement / work at the place. (You) have to carefully supervise all agricultural and other activities as if it is your own. Without getting involved with any one, if anybody is engaged in any theft or (any activity) prejudicial to the interests of the institution or is engaged in any misconduct then you must report it immediately to Manager Shri Natekar Mama and Shri Bhide kaka. While doing this you should be firm and should not have any complex. You may suggest politely regarding timely completion of different work at the place to Shri Natekar Mama. But you should not engage in any fight or in any enmity. Or you should not argue or use offensive language with anybody. You or other servants should not do the work as you deem fit. You and servants may suggest (politely) to Shri Mama (and) do the work with his concurrence.

Do not disobey Shri Mama and Shri Bhau under any circumstances (and) never do anything that is contrary to what they say. (Because) that leads to quarrel and enmity. All of you and other servants those who stay there should remain with unity. All others must perceive your Unity. Timeliness, integrity, honesty, truthfulness, good behavior and good inter personal relations keeps one satisfied.

I feel you are not behaving as stated above. That is why I give you ultimatum. If you behave as stated above only then you can stay there. Otherwise you will have to leave the place. I do not have any anger or hatred about you. But I have to state facts out of love. May god give you wisdom. Blessings to all at your place.

With Blessings,

V. G. Joshi
