Saint who came in the night
« on: March 31, 2010, 10:43:19 AM »
One night, a dog was barking loudly in the rear of the ashram. Bhagavan, who was sleeping in the hall, got up and told his attendants , "I think a saint has come to the Ashram in the form of a dog. He must be hungry. Please go to the kitchen and see if any food is there. Bring water and food." The attendants went to the kitchen and got some food and water. Bhagavan took the food and water to the place where the dog was, placed the food and water in front of him and came back to the hall. This saint who had come in the dog's form ate the food and happily went away. Nobody saw him again.

Bhagavan, later exclaimed, "It was some 'Siddha' (saint) who had taken the form of a dog and had come and they do not wish to make themselves known. That is why they come like this."
