On the morning of Aso Vad 13th, the Vachanamrt was being read in the temple of Vrnpur. Vithhaljibhai of Bhuj asked a question to Bapasri, “Bapa! Who keeps us engrossed in Murti?” Bapasri replied, “It’s Murti which keeps us engrossed.” Then he asked, “Who is the donor and who is the donee?” Bapasri said, “Murti is the donor of all and muktas are donees.” Then Swami Vrndavandasji asked, “Does Maharaj give bliss to all donees?” Bapasri said, “Yes, He gives -we should understand thus. Just it is the real satsang within satsang. For all donees there is only one donor.” Saying so, Bapasri came home.
After sometime, he came to the temple and said, “Harji is suffering from fever. He wept today and requested me to cure him of the fever. Then I assured him that he would be cured.” Then Swami Isvarchara?adasji said, “When in Sa?vat year 1975, you had adopted illness, infinite jivas became victim of illness. Moreover, because of your illness all were worried as to what would happen.” Bapasri said, “Dhanjibhai and his son from Naraya?apur came here to me to consult me if they could buy a factory. I advised them not to buy a factory because epidemic was to spread that year. You may verify this by asking them.” Swami Isvarchara?adasji said, “Bapa! There is no need to ask them. When you invited illness on you, it must have spread everywhere” Bapasri said, “It happens as Sriji Maharaj wishes.”
Then Bapasri asked Swami Ghansyamjivandasji how he was and whether he wanted to stay or go to Amdavad.” Then he replied, “I have to do as Isvarchara?adasji Swami instructs me.” Swami Isvarchara?adasji said that he did not want to go anywhere leaving Bapasri. On hearing this Bapasri became very much pleased, and he kept his one hand on the beard of Swami and the other on his head; and shaking the beard, Bapasri praised, “Where can we find such saints? Though these saints are worth offering sumptuous meals, here they live upon manh only.” Similarly showing much love for three saints viz. Swami Vrndavandasji, Ghansyamjivandasji, etc., Bapasri said, “Nowhere upto Aksarkoti there are such saints. These saints serve me while living upon manh only. When such saints live upon manh, I must live upon millet only.” Thus, Bapasri praised the saints much and delighted them.
Then Bapasri showing his favour said, “In this assembly there are all viz., Maharaj, Anadi muktas, param ekantik muktas and eka?tiks; but as jiva does not understand thus, it craves for other things. For us whatever we want is here. It is therefore that Maharaj has said swearing on the name of paramhansas, “You see us here, but you do not understand thoroughly.” Then Swami Vrndavandasji asked, “Will Muktana?d Swami be here today?” Bapasri said, “Yes! He is here.” Then again, Swami asked where he would be. Bapasri said, “The name cannot be given. If we know all, they will also be here automatically. How great Swami Harinaraya?dasji was! Even then many did not know him. Then looking at the saints, Bapasri said with much mercy, “Even if we go round contless cosmoses to search for such saints, nowhere from Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, Mahakal, Vasudev and up to Aksar can we find such saints. These saints are from a stage beyond the abovementioned divine stages. Therefore, be happy with this understanding.”
“Though all the objects of this world are the cause of misery, and the objects of the five sense organs are perishable; even then, all are striving for material objects which is as good as trading of dust. All activities without the worship of God are like trading of dust. All the material objects are as worthy as dust. Just see! A lot of grain is produced in Bhuj and a lot of it comes from surrounding villages also. So much grain is there that the whole fortress can be filled with grain. But at the outskirts of Bhuj, that grain is found converted into dust, i.e., excreta. Has it any value? When a war takes place, nobody thinks; but if one thinks he will realise that he needs only a half kg. of grain. And that much is available; even then how much trouble he takes! Just see! Some sadhus strive to become kothari, bhandari or mahant. Maya is full of miseries.”
At that time Lalji was sleeping in a standing position. Bapasri asked him to sit down lest he should fall and injure himself. Then Swami Vrndavandasji asked, “Can you see from such a distance?” Bapasri said,” I can see everywhere.” Then Swami Isvarchara?adasji requested, “Bapa! Please let your body be as healthy as it was before.” Bapasri said, “I have let my body to be ill so that you can have a chance of serving me. You might have served many bodies, but service of this body is rare to get. This service is much precious. This is as rare as the meeting between an ant and an elephant.” Then he said to the saints, “Go to Bhuj to have darsan of annaku? and then after giving darsan to devotees in other villages, come to Bharasar where I will also come.”|| 5 ||
