In chapter 15 of Hemadpant's Shri Sai Satcharitra, the author narrates a tale of Das Ganu being chided by Baba as "Dulhe Raja" (bridegroom) for dressing vibrantly for making kirtan, and being asked to take of his turban etc. While depending on one's attitude one can make several good interpretations out of this story, I also have one. What Baba meant to say was that in the path to spiritual progress, getting rid of ego is the most important and difficult part. And as one endeavors to do so, he risks adopting an ego of religion or delighting in such act. Though Das Ganu was doing a fine job of singing Baba's glory and spreading His name, but somewhere in his donning the colorful clothes a unique ego or that of making pomp and show of his doing so was apparent. While reading Isha Upandishad, I came across a verse that says that in pursuing worldly objects one heads into blind darkness, and into even more blind darkness is the one who delights in Brahman or sambhuti. Sai Baba is the Best Teacher or Guru of Upanishad, and this tale is reminded to be read daily (see the closing statement of chapter 15 of Hemadpant's Shri Sai Satcharitra).
