On the day of Vaishakh Vad 13th, Bapashri showing his favour, talked. He said, “The renouncer according to the dharma should not touch a woman but if she is drowning he can pull her out. Similarly, if anyone’s wisdom becomes devilish and find fault in us, even then, he should be brought in satsang by hook or crook and see that he is benefited but should not be discarded- it is our duty (dharma). Therefore, we should wish good of him.

Then the 38th Vachanamrut of first chapter got read. In it, it is said to avoid thoughts. Bapashri asked saints, “Do you get thoughts?” Aksharjivandasji requested Bapashri to get the thoughts stopped by his grace. Bapashri said, “You do not want to do any thing and telling me to do this and that is not proper. Some means of gaiety effort should be done. Then Bapashri said if any one separates from me, I wonder that for the last three to four years I trained him and proved to be useless. Then after many efforts, he may or may not come back. No more efforts should be done but wish good of him. If he asks for illusive thing instead of Murti, he should be given but we should see that he imbibes our virtues. We should keep such nature but should not become like him, should keep mercy. We should try that during this birth or in the next birth he is benefited- such is the tradition. Then he said, “Listen, this talk is not false. Now do not betray us.”

Then on the very day in the evening Bapashri along with saints and devotees went to the farm to bathe. After bath performed mental worship and all set under a jambun tree. The 27th Vachanamrut of the first chapter was being read in the assembly. In it, it is said that God dwells in every form.

Saint asked, “Was God not dwelling before we understood thus?” Bapashri said, “Just as the milk of lioness can be put only in golden vessel but cannot be put in earthenware, etc. Similarly one becomes worthy, Shriji Maharaj dwells but not before that-therefore worthiness of the vessel (here human beings) is needed.

Then Purani Dharmakishordasji asked, “What is the state of that Mukta in whose heart God dwells?” Bapashri replied, “It is called the state of Ekantik because so long his body is of illusion (maya), he is called Ekantik. When he gets detached from body, he is called Param Ekantik. || 226 ||
