A true event – reported by Dr. Harbhajan Singh
At the foot of the hills, close to Kiratpur in Punjab, there is a lonely, small village where only a few people live. Among them was a poor, old couple who lived all alone. They were both initiated by the Master. The woman became very receptive to Master. When she went inside, she realized that she should do something for the Master. Although she was very old, almost too old to walk, she said: “I have to do something”. So she always walked very slowly picking up little branches from the trees. She sold them and kept the money for the Master. She said to her husband: “No, we will not touch this money. It is for Master.
They had a cow. The woman was quite sure that one day Master would come to her house, even if people said, “How will He come here? He cannot come to such a village. Not even a car can drive here! But she didn’t listen to their objections. She was sure that Master would come. He had promised her.
So every day she collected a little butter for the Master and kept it safe. She wrapped the butter in rags to protect it from mice and rats; for they were very poor and had no vessel to hold the butter in.
One day Master came to this area and asked His driver to take the road (to this village). The driver replied: “Master, you can’t go there with the car the road is much too bad, all bumpy and full of potholes. People always go there on foot. Master replied: “You don’t have to drive, the car is driving. Don’t worry!”
When Master arrived, He immediately pulled a knife out of His pocket and said, “Mother, where is the butter? She wrapped it out of the dirty rags and Master ate some of it full of joy. Then she gave Him the money: “Master, this is Your money! It was twenty rupees, a very small amount, but it took her a month or more to get it together. Every day she had saved a few coins. Master gave her a lot of love. He said to her: “Now you don’t have to work anymore”. He gave her some money. “This sum will be sent to you every month from now on. That will be enough for you. Now all you have to do is meditate. You are accepted, what more do you want? When Master says that you are accepted – what more do you need? These are wonderful things from His life.
