On the day of Aso Sud 7th saints brought images of God to Bapasri at Vrspur. Seeing the them, Bapasri showed his pleasure and gave the images to the saints.
Purani Kesavpriyadasji said, “The books read that we should go into Murti whereas you preach to come into Murti. How to understand it?” Bapasri said, “Either you quote me or the book, everywhere it is said to come in Murti, just rivers come into the sea.” Then Bapasri said, “My teeth have fallen but I will not allow any jiva to fall from Murti. The nature of a jiva is zestful so it goes astray. But I will not allow any jiva to go astray. I want to keep all in Murti.” Then the saints applied sandalwood paste to Bapasri. At that time, Bapasri said, “This chandlo is the cause and so its dignity should not be spoiled. ‘Saune vas karun re sauno karan hun Bhagwan.’ (I control all and I am the God who is the cause of all). The chandlo is the symbol of that causal Murti. Therefore, we should keep causal Murti.” Then looking at the devotees, Bapasri said, “Come and perform puja of these saints. Nobody shall remain without performing puja.” Saying so, Bapasri himself performed puja of all saints and devotees with sandalwood paste. At that time showing his favour he said, “This divine sandalwood paste is applied in Aksardham. This paste is applied by anadi mukta who dwells in Sriji Maharaj who is the master of Aksardham. Present time and this opportunity are the best.” Then he got the piece of cloth on which he was sitting folded short, and said, “We should become short, i.e. should draw inward. A jiva may be black, white, or long, but when it dwells in Murti it is said to have become short. Therefore, to become short is the best.” Then Jadavjibhai of Kera had brought sandalwood paste, which saints applied to Bapasri, Bapasri also performed puja of the saints and devotees. At that time, he said, “The devotees from Narayanapur and Kera bring sandalwood paste with them, but the satsangis of this village do not bring. What may they be thinking of themselves?” Then the katha began. In it, it is said that in samadhi, akasa dissolves for one who goes into samadhi. Then Bapasri said, “As akasa is produced from tamoguna, it dissolves for one who is in samadhi. But, for one who is sent into samadhi by Sriji Maharaj, by His grace, the akasa which is produced from tamoguna is not seen; and hence it is said to have dissolved. And in such state of samadhi he views chidakasa; and hence it is said to have been produced. When one is brought back into body by Sriji Maharaj, for him, the akasa which is the product of tamoguna is said to have produced; and as he does not see chidakasa now, it is said to have dissolved for him. But, in fact akasa and chidakasa are as they are- without change.” While giving this talk, Bapasri made Swami Vrndavandasji realise this process internally. Then Karsanbhai of Sukhpur who had migrated to village Dhamadka came for darsan from Dhamadka. He presented a coin worth five paisa to Bapasri and said, “Two months ago you and Sriji Maharaj had come to Dhamadka in a golden chariot drawn by horses of golden colour to fetch Viraji, the son of Khima Kumbhar, to Aksardham. At that time, the boy said, ‘Maharaj and Bapa are seated in the chariot and they said, ‘Come on, we have come to fetch you to Aksardham. You will have to graze donkeys, if you live in the body any longer. Therefore, come to Aksardham where there is abundant happiness.’ They are saying so. Therefore, I will go with them.’ Then his father asked him where Maharaj and Bapa were. The son replied, ‘Here are they, see them.’ Then the father had darsan of Maharaj and Bapasri as described by his son. Then he dropped one coin in the chariot. Instead of falling in the chariot, the coin fell on the ground. After you and Maharaj fetched the boy to Aksardham, his father wanted that he should present that coin to you. So he had preserved that coin. As he knew that I was coming for your darsan, he gave me that coin to present to you. So I have brought it.” Bapasri said, “Tell Khima Kumbhar that I have made his son Vira happy in the bliss of Murti and have elevated him to the cadre of anadi mukta.” || 24 ||
