    27 December, 1911, Wednesday-

    Shirdi

     

    I did not sleep well last night but got up early in the morning prayed, bathed and dressed earlier than usual. The detectives here appeared to be more active than usual today. One stationed himself near Sayin Maharaj. Another followed me. To test him I went to Tipnis’ house to see his wife. The detective of Kalyan followed me there and returned with me when I returned. The chief constable of Kopargaon came with a head constable & took his seat in my room. My son Balvant happened to be there but there was no conversation between them. Later on they with-drew without doing anything, but they had a long consultation in front of Dixit’s Wada. I wonder what the whole fuss was about. Mungi was much with them. After the midday Arti, I had my breakfast about 3 P.M. & then lay down & had a good sleep. In the afternoon many people attempted to go & see Sayin Maharaj but he was not inclined to speak and dismissed them soon. So I did not go & sat reading.

     

    We all saw him at dusk when he came out for his stroll & again at Shej-Arti. Bhishma’s Bhajan was very much prolonged today by many people singing at it. A young Mahomedan surprized me by his song. Then there was Ramayan by Dixit.

    28 December, 1911, Thursday-

    Shirdi-

     
    In the morning after I prayed Dr Hate & Mr R.D.Moregankar got permission to return. So they went away & immediately after came Nanasaheb Chandorkar, C.V.Vaidya and Mr Natekar “Hamsa ”. I sat long speaking with the last & then went & saw the former two who are staying in a tent close by. Hamsa has travelled long in Himalaya, is an initiate and an accepted disciple. His conversation is therefore very edyfying.

    C.V.Vaidya has some trouble in one of his eyes. It is very red. Mr Chandorkar is very jolly as usual. We attended the mid-day Arti. Trimbakrao known as Maruti is very angry. He did not attend the worship today and was very sulky. Madhavarao Deshpande is better today. He was on his legs nearly the whole day. Dixit is very assiduous in attending to all guests who are very numerous. Mr Chandorkar went to Kalyan today & said he would return on Sunday next.

    I sat talking with Hamsa in the afternoon, nearly up to the time of going to see Sayin Maharaj as he goes out for his stroll. He did not permit any body to sit there today but dismissed every one with “Udi ”. Hamsa went to Radha Krishna & spent the evening there. She sings well & does Bhajan very excellant. We had Bhishma’s Bhajan in which many joined and then there was Dixit ’s Ramayan. The Sub-Inspector of Kalyan went away today & in going saluted me very humbly which is rather strange. Mungi is still here wandering about among people. Dada Gole has come here from Morvi. One of my clients, Ramrao is also here. He wishes me to write an appeal. There is no time for it

    29 December, 1911, Friday

    Shirdi

     

    I was a little late in getting up & then sat talking with Mr Natekar whom we call “Hamsa” & also Swami. I could not finish my prayer etc in time to go and see Sayin Maharaj as he went out. I saw him when he returned to Masjid. Hamsa was with me. Sayin Maharaj was in very good mood & began a story which was very very instructive but unfortunately Trimbakrao whom we call Maruti interrupted most foolishly and Sayin Maharaj changed the subject.

     

    He said there was a young man very hungry and wanting in almost every respect. The young man after wandering about went to Sayin Saheb’s father’ house & was received very kindly & given every thing he required. The boy spent sometime there, felt fat, collected a few things, stole ornaments & making the whole into a bundle wished to return to where he had come from. He was really born in & belonged to Sayin Saheb’s fathers’ house but did not know it. The boy put the bundle into the corner of a street but was seen before he could actually start. So he had to delay. In the meantime thieves took away the ornaments from his bundle. He missed them when he was on the point of starting. So he kept at the house & collected more ornaments and actually started but people on the way arrested him on the suspicion of his having come by the things by theft. At this point the story got diverted, and ended abruptly.

     

    On my return from the mid-day Arti I requested “Hamsa ” to take his food with me & he kindly accepted my invitation. He is a very nice simple man & after meals he told us about his travels in the Himalayas, how he crested Manasa Sarowar, how he heard an Upanishad being sung there, how he followed foot prints, how he reached a cave, saw a Mahatma, and the latter spoke of the conviction of Tilak that day at Bombay, how the Mahatma introduced him to his brother (elder fellow student) how he finally met his Guru and became “Kritastha ”. Later on we went to Sayin Baba & saw him at the Masjid. He sent me a word this afternoon that I have to stay here another two months. He confirmed the message in the afternoon & then said that his “Udi ” had great spiritual properties. He told my wife that the Governor came with a lance, that Sayin Maharaj had a tusall with him & drove him out, & that he finally conciliated the Governor. The language is highly figurative & therefore difficult to interpret. In the evening we attended the Shejarti & then had the Bhajan of Bhishma & Ramayan of Dixit.

    30 December, 1911, Saturday-

    Shirdi

     

    In the morning after prayer, I wrote two letters one to my son Baba & the other to Bhau Durrani telling them that I am not likely to return for another two months. Mr Natekar went to Rada Krishna lady. She, it would appear was away. He sat there & felt so calm & nice that he spent the whole day there. I read Ramayan in the morning, and heard Bhagavat in the afternoon, and went to Sayin Maharaj a little before dusk. He treated me very kindly, called me by name & told a small tale calculated to impress the virtue of patience.

     

    He said he went to Aurangabad on one of his wanderings & saw a Fakir sitting in a Masjid near which there was a very tall Tamarind tree. The Fakir would not let him enter the Masjid first but ultimately consented to his putting up in it. The Fakir  depended entirely on a piece of cake that an old woman used to supply him at midday. Sayin Maharaj volunteered to beg for him and kept him supplied amply with food for twelve years and then thought of leaving the place. The old Fakir shed tears at parting & had to be consoled with soft words. Sayin Maharaj visited him four years later & found him there doing well. The Fakir then came here a few years ago & lodged at the Chavadhi. Motha-Baba Fakir looked after him. From what was said I gathered that Sayin Baba stayed twelve years to instruct the Aurangabad Fakir and set him up fully in the spiritual world. At night there was Bhishmas ’ Bhajan &Dixit ’s Ramayan. Natekar who came then also read a chapter.

    31 December, 1911, Sunday-

    Shirdi

     

    I got up very early in the morning, prayed & was walking in the verandah when Hamsa came downstairs & said that he could not sleep well & so wandered out & went to Khandoba Temple then to the house occupied at present by RadhaKrishna Bai in the hope of hearing her pray but found that there were no signs of anybody staying in the house. So he wandered about the village gate. Later on he went again & met Radha Krishna Bai. She kindly helped him so he bathed, prayed and had breakfast out of the Prasad sent to her by Sayin Maharaj. I stood talking with him. He went to Radha Krishna Bai again to say goodbye and she gave him a dhoti & a shirt as Prasad.

     

    Then he returned to Bombay with the three young men that were with him. The name of one of them was Rege. All this made me late for everything & was further delayed by the Barber. I saw Sayin Baba go out but he did not permit any body to approach him & salute at close quarters. I went to the Masjid later on & sat there to attend the midday worship. During the Arti all the males had to stand today below the platform in the open, leaving the whole Masjid for the ladies. The arrangement was very good. On my return, I sat talking with the Mamledar of Kopargaon who happened to be here. Later on came Mr Deva Mamledar of Dahanu. Nanasaheb Chandorkar came before Arti. Our breakfast was as usual about 2 P.M. After it I sat reading the newspapers received today. The Conventionist Congress does not appear to have been an unqualified success. Towards evening I went to the Masjid but Sayin Maharaj gave “Udi ” soon.. So I sat on the plinth of the new building, talking with the Gujarathi Shastri who is with Govardhandas. We saluted Sayin Maharaj when he came out for his usual stroll & again at Sheja-Arti. Then we had the Bhajan of Bhishma & Dixit’ Ramayan.

    1 January, 1912, Sunday-

    Shirdi

    I got up early in the morning went to the Chavadhi for Kakad Arti. I saw Sayin Maharaja’s face as the first thing and it was full of sweet grace I was very much delighted. After we returned to the Wada, I saw Upasani ’s brother. He has come from Dhulia. I saw him at Poona & Amravati before. He went to see Sayin Maharaj & was told about people bringing ties with them from a former birth & meeting now in consequence of them. He told the story of a former birth in which he, Bapusaheb Jog, Dada Kelkar, Madhavarao Deshpande, myself & Dixit were associated and lived in a blind alley. There was his Murushad there. He has now brought us together again. I saw him go out & then sat reading Ramayan. I saw him again at mid-day Arti, & he was very kind to me. Dixit gave a “Naivedya ” today  & we had all our meals with him.


    I sat with Vaidya, Nanasaheb Chandorkhar, Mr Deva Mamledar of Dahanu, & others. I sat reading again & then went to see Sayin Saheb at the Masjid. He first dismissed me along with the rest but called me again saying that I was anxious to run away. In the evening we saw him opposite the chavadhi & had at night the Bhajan of Bhishma & Dixits Ramayana. Bala Shimpi came to the Bhajan.

    2 January, 1912, Tuesday-

    Shirdi

     
    I got up very early in the morning. Upasani’s brother who came yesterday went away before day break. After I finished my prayer Kaka Mahajani, Atré & others went. More went later on. C.V. Vaidya went after midday Arti, with three other gentlemen Nanasaheb Chandorkar held a Dhanurmas, and all were invited. After meals it was that C.V.Vaidya went. Mankar, Mamledar of Kopargaon & Deva, Mamledar of Dahanu, also went then. Later on after sunset Nanasaheb Chandorkhar went with all his family. So the wada, which during these few days used to look full & very pleasant is comparatively empty now &  we miss company. 

    We saw Sayin Maharaj when he came out for a stroll, & again at Sheja-Arti. My son Baba & Gopalrao Dole came this morning to take me to Amravati. I said my departure depended on the permission of Sayin Maharaj. They saw Sayin Maharaj  & said there was no difficulty about the permission. Bhishma is not well today  So there was no Bhajan. Ram Maruti wished to go away today but Sayin Baba detained him. There was Ramayan & Bhagavat read at night

    3 January, 1912, Wednesday-

    Shirdi

     

    In the morning I got up early, attended the Kakad Arti and finished my prayer. My son Baba & Gopalrao Dole went to Sayin Maharaj & asked for permission to return to Amravati. Sayin Maharaj replied that all my return. So my son Baba & Gopalrao Dole returned in great joy. They told me  So I went with Madhavarao Deshpande & Sayin Maharaj confirmed the permission but as we were returning he overtook us near the Khind  & said that we may start tomorrow. I saw him when he was going out & again after he returned to the Masjid. Madhavarao started the subject about my departure & Sayin Maharaj replied that I had my houses both here & at Amravati & I may stay where I like and I may never return to Amravati. That settled the matter, so it appeared to me & I told my son Baba & Gopalrao Dole to return to Amravati. So they made ready & went to say “goodbye ” & receive the blessing of Sayin Maharaj when the latter told them to go tomorrow. In the afternoon he said he would give all of my family, permission to return tomorrow.

     Megha fed some Brahmans today in completion of his Anushtana of Gayatri Purashchamena. We had our meals with him. The meal was served in Sathe’s Wada. In the afternoon I saw Sayin Maharaj, both at the Masjid & when he came out for his usual stroll. He was in a very pleased mood and laughed & abused in one & the same breath. At night there was the Bhajan of Bhishma & Dixit ’s Ramayan of which two chapters were read .Tatya Patel ’s father died in the evening.

    4 January, 1912, Thursday-

    Shirdi

     

    I got up early in the morning, prayed, and wished my son Baba & Gopalrao Dole to go to Sayin Maharaj and obtain permission to return to Amravati but my wife intervened saying it was Pausha Paurnima & therefore a day sacred to our family deity. So no endeavour was made to obtain the permission required. I saw him go out as usual, & went to the Masjid after he returned, spending the interval in read Ramayana. We returned after the mid-day Arti, and after meals I sat talking with Bapusaheb Jog & then resumed Ramayan.

    After 5 P.M. I went to Sayin Maharaj in the Masjid and found him walking about in the compound. My wife also came there. After a time he took his usual seat� & we sat near him. Dixit and his wife also came. Sayin Maharaj then told a story. He said there was a Princess living in a palace. A Mang  sought shelter with her. Her sister-in-law who was there also, refused it to the Mang. So the Mang with his wife was returning disconsolate to his village when he met Alla-mirya on the way and told his story, how, stricken with poverty he sought shelter & was refused. Alla-mirya advised him to return with his wife & seek shelter once more with the same princess. He did so & was admitted & treated like a member of the family. The Mang stayed enjoying all the comforts for over six months and then coveting gold, murdered the princess with an axe. The people round about assembled in large numbers & held a panchayat. The Mang admitted the offence. When the matter went to the King in due course, Alla mirya advised him to let the Mang go. The King obeyed. The princess murdered by the Mang came to be born of him as his daughter, & he came once more to the palace and was permitted to stay there in affluence & ease for twelve years. Then Alla-minya inclined the King to avenge the murdered princess and the Mang was killed in the same way in which he had killed the princess. The Mang's widow returned to her village, accepting the Mang 's fate as just. The princess who was born as daughter to the Mang, came to the place, took possession of what belonged to her in the former reincarnation and lived happily afterwards. Thus was the work of God done and His justice vindicated.

    There was Sheja- Arti at night, then Bhishmas Bhajan & Dixits Ramayan. Ram Maruti today embraced Sayin Maharaj when the latter was going in procession to the Chavadhi for the Sheja-Arti.

    5 January, 1912, Friday-
    Shirdi
     

    In the morning I got up early though I did not sleep well at night.  I attended the Kakad Arti. Sayin Maharaj was in a pleased mood.  My son Baba & Gopalrao Dole went to him. On seeing them he said "go". Taking this as permission to return they hired Baba Bhau's Tonga and went away.  I prayed and saw Sayin Maharaj go out, & again after he returned.  He was in very good mood.  Many people came.

    After the mid-day arti, & after the usual meal, I lay down for a while and then sat listening to Ramayan read by Dixit. Upasani Bhishma & Madhavarao were also present.  Then about 5 P.M.,  I went to see Sayin Maharaj with Bhishma & my son Balvant.  He told how he was not well and humorously discribed his ailments.  Balabhau Joshi brought parched gram. Sayin Maharaj ate a few and distributed the rest.  Then we stood near the Chavadhi when he came out for his stroll, & then we had the usual arti in the wada Bhishma's Bhajan & Dixit's Ramayan of which two chapters were read. Today some people from Dhulia came &went.

    6 January, 1912, Saturday-

    Shirdi

     
    I got up in the morning a little before day break and finished my prayer as usual, & saw Sayin Maharaj go out.  After he passed on I went to Balasaheb Bhate and borrowed from him his copy of Ranganath Swami ’s Yogavashishta in Marathi, returned to my lodging, but resumed the reading of Ramayan. 

    We all then attended the midday arti and had our meals as usual.  I did not wish to lie down, but somehow sleep overcame me  & I slept for hours nearly.  Then Dixit read Ramayan & later on I went to the Masjid & saw Sayin Maharaj.  He was in a pleased mood  & there was talk.  In the evening there was the usual Wada Arti & later on we attended the Sheja-Arti at the Chavadhi.  Sayin Maharaj was in an exceptionally pleased mood made mystic signs to Megha and did what are known as “Drishtipata ” in yog.  An astrologer has come from Dhulia and is a guest of Upasani & is staying in the Wada.  At night there Bhishmas Bhajan & the Ramayan of Dixit.

    7 January, 1912, Sunday-

    Shirdi

     

    In the morning I got up early and attended the Kakad Arti. Sayin Maharaj looked exceedingly pleased and gave yogic glances.  I passed the whole day in a sort of ecstasy.  After morning, I, Bapusaheb Jog & Upasani commenced Ranganath Yogavashishta.  Then we saw Sayin Maharaj go out & in the interval sat talking with the young Mohamedans that come to the Masjid.  One of them recited some verses. The mid-day Arti was late.  Sayin Baba commenced a very good tale. 

    He said he had a very good well.  The water in it was sky blue and its supply was inexhaustible.  Four mothas would not empty it, and the fruit grown with the water was inordinately pure and tasteful.  He did not continue the story beyond the point. 

    In the afternoon Dixit read two chapters of Ramayana. Upasani, myself, Ram Maruti and Dixit were present.  Then we went to Sayin Baba & attended his stroll.  As it was getting dark, he got or rather showed as if, he got angry with the wood-cutter women.  At night there was Bhishma's Bhajan & Dixits Ramayan.

    8 January, 1912, Monday-

    Shirdi

     

    I got up early in the morning and feeling it too early, went again to sleep and then overslept my usual moment of leaving bed. So things got set forward and in that way affected the routine of the whole day. After prayer I sat reading Yogavashishta of Ranganath with Bapusaheb Jog, Upasani, Rama Maruti & Madhavarao Deshpande.

    We saw Sayin Maharaj go out &again saw him after he returned. During the mid-day service, after the arti Sayin Maharaj exhibited sudden & great anger and abused violently. It appears, as if, Plague is likely to reappear here & Sayin Maharaj is endeavouring to prevent its reappearance. After meals, we sat talking. I read a little of Ramayana & then arrived Mr Sané Mamaledar of Kopargaon with Mr Joshi who is a Deputy Collector of Dhulia.

     
    Later on we went to Sayin Maharaj after reading a chapter of Ramayana. We waited there long enough to see him at & after his usual stroll, & then attended the Sheja Arti. At night there was the usual Bhajan & Ramayan.
