SHIRDI SAI BABA
Baba knew what his devotees
Were doing in their houses,
Or elsewhere, where they stayed,
Thru’ his divine telescopic mind.
By the end of 1915, Balkram Mankar
Asked his friend, Tarkhad, whether
He had any message to inform
Sai Baba as he was going to meet him.
Mrs. Tarkhad gave him peda sweet
Which was offered to Baba’s picture,
As there was nothing fresh at home,
Late in the evening, to offer him.
Balakram Mankar carried the sweet,
But to deliver it to Baba, he forgot,
Until Baba repeatedly asked him,
For the sweet sent by her thru’ him.
He went back again and brought,
With due regret, the peda sweet,
Which Baba eagerly took and ate,
As, with her devotion, it was sent.
This incident was proof to say,
That every past event of the day,
Small or big, Baba kept in his mind,
To recall it when there was a demand.
A small gift or a token amount,
It may be, but he considered it,
More valuable, as it carried within,
The giver’s love and affection.
It was due to Baba’s greatness,
The devotees in large numbers,
Were rushing around him always,
To receive his valuable blessings.
It’s a wonder, how he remembers,
All that had happened, that happens,
And also can foresee future events,
Like this, is it possible by all saints?
God only knows, a few of His choice,
Born in this world, to carry on His tasks,
As guiding messengers sent by Him
On His behalf, from time to time.
