Shri Sai Kriti
Hansraj Vaani had asthma:it was very severe andtormented him day andnight. He was advised byNarsinga Baba Maharaj ofNasik to seek refuge atBaba's feet. Hence he andhis wife came to Shirdi andmade it their home.Baba cautioned Hansraj,and told him not to eat curd,or acidic and pungent fooditems. But Hansraj lovedcurds and felt that the mealswas incomplete without it. Infact he felt he could give uphis life rather than give upeating curd. He forced hiswife to prepare curd daily sohe could have it for lunch.They had lunch after thenoon aarti, and while theyattended it a cat wouldsneak in and eat the curd.This bothered Hansraj a lot,as he had to have the mealwithout it. So he devised aplan, he asked his wife tokeep the vessel in a slingand hang it from thereafter.Nonetheless, the catsomehow managed to eatit. One day he decided tocatch the cat in the act andgive it a good thrashing. Hewaited with a stick in hishand for the cat to committhe act. Indeed the cat cameinto the house andsomehow managed toclimb up and eat the curd.As soon as the cat hadfinished eating, shedescended and Hansrajgave her a good thrashing.In the evening Hansrajwent to the Dwaraka Mai,where Baba was sittingalong with his devotees.Baba looking at Hansrajsaid, There is an Uptiya(one who does the reverseof what he is asked to do)who wants to die by eatingsour and pungent things, butI will not allow him to do so.I went to his home in theform of a cat to eat the curdand he gave me a goodthrashing." Then Babaexposed his back and therewere red welts from thebeating.Many a time Babaappeared before hisbhaktas to assure andsatisfy them. But he did soin unique and differentroopas (forms)."Sometimes I am a dog.sometimg a pig, a cow, acat, a fly and an aquaticcreature. In various formsdo I move about in theuniverse. Know that I likeonly him who sees me in allliving beings. so give up thissense of differentiation, thisis the way to worship me"said Baba to Mrs Tarkhadwhen she fed a hungry dog,and then a mud splatteredpig.
