    Shirdi

     
    I got up as usual, prayed & in the morning held the Panchadasi class.  Besides our usual members, a lady from Nasik by name Mrs Sundarabai was present.  We saw Sayin Baba go out & again at the Masjid after he returned to the Masjid.  He told me a story, how when he was young, he went out one morning &suddenly became a girl & continued to be so, for sometime.  He did not give many details.

    The midday Arti passed off as usual. Many people came to worship today.  After the midday meal I lay down for a while & then continued our Panchadasi class.  Madharao asked Sayin Baba today about my return and got a reply to the effect that times being very unfavourable to me, I would have to remain her a few months more.  In the evening we went to see Sayin Baba at the evening stroll & then after the Wada Arti. There was Sheja Arti and later on Bhishma read Bhagavat & Das Bodh.

    Shirdi

    I attended the Kakad Arti & then held our Panchadasi class.  We saw Sayin Maharaj go out & later on attended the Masjid for the midday Arti.  Everything went off very much as usual, & after the midday meal I lay down for a while.  Mr Sané Mamledar of Kopargaon and Mr Nanasaheb Revenue Inspector came with Balasaheb Bhate & sat talking for sometime.  After they went away we continued our Panchadasi class but the progress was very slow.  We saw Sayin Baba at his evening stroll and in the evening the Nasik ladies assisted in the Bhajan after the Wada Arti.  They have good voices but they appear to be very weak &can make no sustained effort.

    Shirdi

    I got up early, prayed, & saw Mr Madhavarao Deshpande leave Shirdi for Nagpur.  From there he will go to Gwalior for the wedding of Nanasaheb Chandorkar ’s son & will return by stages, seeing Benares, Allahabad, Gaya Mathura & other holy places on the way. 

    We held our Panchadasi class but Upasani was feeling unwell, so our progress was slow.  We attended the midday Arti, and after the midday meal, resumed our Panchadasi class & made some progress.  In the evening, after the Wada Arti, we attended the Sheja Arti, and after it Bhishma read Dasabodh.

    Shirdi

    I attended the Kakad Arti.  Sayin Baba went to the Masjid without saying much.  The Nasik ladies went away this morning.  Then we held our class & saw Sayin Baba go out, & again after he returned to the Masjid.  He told a story about his brother having misbehaved once & being out casted in consequence.  Sayin Baba looked after him & eventually had him readmitted to the caste. 

    The midday Arti passed off as usual & after the midday meal I lay down for a while & then We continued our Panchadasi class.  One Mr Datar has come from Poona with his son who appears to be a pleader.  They are staying in the hall.  We attended the Masjid to see Sayin Saheb at the stroll. After the Wada Arti, there was Bhagavat & Dasbodh & Bhajan in which Mrs Kaulgi and Sonubai assisted.

    The midday Arti passed off as usual &after meal, I lay down for a while and then resumed our Panchadasi class till nearly nightfall when we went to see Sayin Maharaj at his evening stroll.  At night there was the Wada Arti &then the Sheja-Arti.  Bhishma read Bhagavat and Dasbodh.

    Shirdi

    I attended the Kakad Arti & was on my return praying when Dhonde Baba arrived from Poona.  He returned recently from Burmah and I sat talking with him about the health of my friend Tilak and the state of his mind.  It is as good as it can be under the circumstances.  He wishes me to return to my practice at the bar but that depends upon what Sayin Saheb orders.  We held our Panchadasi class and Mr Balasaheb Bhate attended it.

    We saw Sayin Saheb go out & later on I went to the Masjid after he returned.  He asked me if Jivamuni would pay. I could not make out what Jivamuni meant but replied that Jivamuni would if ordered.  He said Jivamuni would not. 

    He gave me a lot of fruits & sweets.  The midday Arti passed off as usual.  Today was Ekadasi & nobody except myself & Raghunath had a breakfast or the midday meal.  Dhonde Baba also fasted.  He returned to Poona about 4 P.M. with Bhau son of Dada Kelkar.  We then continued our Panchadasi class & in the evening went to see Sayin Maharaj at his stroll.  He was in a very pleased mood walked light, made jokes & so on.  After the Wada Arti Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasbodh.

    Shirdi

    I prayed in the morning and held our usual Panchadasi class.  While we were at it Sayin Baba passed through and we saw him near the Sathé Wada.  He appeared very much tired.  I saw him again after he returned and he appeared to be in a very placid mood.  He said that Balasaheb Bhate was a Khatu, that his wife was a “Saliu ” i..e. weaver & that his son Babu was also a Sali.  Sayin Saheb said further that Wassudeo Kaka, was a Rajput in his former birth and bore the name of Jaising, that he was fond of meat & that Sayin Saheb & others used to make him very angry by asking him if he wanted the head of a goat, that this Jaising had three sons who served in the army and a daughter who turned out bad, became the keep of a Barwar, bore children by him and died thus.

    The midday Arti passed off as usual except that Waman Tatya who came after it & wished to worship got a good harvest of hard words.  After the midday meal I lay down for a while & then we continued our Panchadasi class till evening when we went to see Sayin Saheb at his stroll.   

    After the wada Arti I went to the Masjid to attend the procession to Chavadhi & the Sheja Arti there.  Sayin Saheb exhibited an angry mood, abused those that had got on to the roof of the Masjid for lighting lamps, and at the time when the procession started he threw his stick at Mrs Tai Jog the wife of Bapusaheb.  At the Chavadhi I thought he would beat Bapusaheb Jog for he approached the latter, held his hands and demanded why arti was done,  but after a while he beat Bala Simpi with his stick and later on TrimbakRao whom he calls Maruti.  Bala Simpi ran away but TrimbakRao receiv ed the blow standing and prostrated himself before Sayin Saheb. I think he received a full measure of favour and got ahead by atleast a stage. Sayin Saheb was talking loudly when we returned.  I sat talking with Balasaheb Bhate. Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasbodh.

    Shirdi

    I attended the Kakad Arti &then after prayer held our Panchadasi class but both Bapusaheb Jog & Upasani delayed as they got themselves shaved & we could not actually begin until Sayin Baba went out & we saw him near the Sathe Wada.  When we did actually begin we made progress.  I went to Masjid about 11 A.m. and Sayin Baba seemed to be in a very good mood but looked very much tired.  Trimbak Rao came very much near to abusing Fakir Baba for what appeared to me to be a very trifling matter.

    The midday arti passed off as usual. Sayin Baba remembered Mr Dixit, Nanasaheb Chandorkar & Sathe. After meals we continued our Panchadasi class & made good progress. We saw Sayin Baba at his evening stroll & at night there was Bhagavat & Dasabodha read by Bhishma. He also did the Bhajan and Bala Saheb Bhaté attended. A Teli living opposite to us died in the evening. His wife Sattrabai & daughter Gopi used to work as our domestic servants.

    Shirdi

    I prayed & held our Panchadasi class in the morning.  During it we saw Sayin Maharaj go out. When I went to the Masjid about 11 A.m. he said he was ill & complained of pain in the abdomen. There was a band which played today before the Masjid. It was engaged by a Marwadi for a wedding in his house  The midday Arti passed off as usual. Today was Holi. So I invited Bhai, Keshava & Devaji to the midday meal. We had it in a sumptuous style. After it I lay down for a while & then continuing our Panchadasi class we finished  'Tripti Deep' and commenced 'Kutastha deep'.

    We saw Sayin Maharaj at the evening stroll & after the Wada Arti, again at the Sheja Arti which passed off with great ease, Sayin Baba being in very good humour.  Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasabodh at night.  Balasaheb Bhate came for Dasbodh.

    Shirdi


    I attended the Kakad Arti & Sayin Baba looked pleased and passed into the Masjid without any hard words. Abdulla in trying to remove a hanging lamp by accident, left it so as to drop to the ground & get shattered.  I thought this might anger Sayin Baba but it did not.  He took no notice of it.

    We held our Panchadasi class & sat in my room as it was very windy in the verandah.  We saw Sayin Baba go out & again after he returned.  He said that in a former birth I was with him for two or three years, and went into royal service though there was enough at home to live in comfort.  I wished to learn further particulars but Sayin Saheb would not communicate them. The midday Arti passed off as usual and after the midday meal I lay down for sometime & then continued our Panchadasi class. 

    In the evening we saw Sayin Saheb go out for his stroll and at night Bhishma had his Bhajan after the Wada Arti. Today one Dr.Ranadé practising at Dhulia has come. He says he is related to the Ranade who used to live opposite to Baba Maharaj. He adds that he met me at Sinhagad. There is also a Bombay gentleman Palsé by caste who says he visited me at Amravati, some years ago.

    Shirdi


    I got up early in the morning, prayed and held our Panchadasi class.  We saw Sayin Baba go out and about 11 A.m. I went to the Masjid as usual.  Sayin Baba was in a very good mood & sat talking, but he told no story worth recording.


    The midday Arti passed off as usual.  My wife was late in going to worship Sayin Saheb, but he very kindly desisted from his meal & let her worship him.  In the afternoon we continued our Panchadasi class till dark when we went to see Sayin Baba at his stroll.  After the Wada Arti there was the Sheja Arti.  There was more music than usual & Sayin Baba was very quiet all through.  At night Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasabodh.  Mr Balasaheb Bhaté was present during the reading of the latter.

    Shirdi


    I got up so early that I was able to finish my prayer attend to my morning calls & lie down for about an hour before it was time for Kakad Arti.  I attended it & then held our Panchadasi class but I felt unwell & we could make no progress. My stomach would appear to be out of order & I had two motions.

    We saw Sayin Saheb go out & then went to the Masjid when he returned. He did not talk much & the Midday Arti passed off without any incident.  After meal I lay down & slept long. Mr Bapusaheb Jog went with Balasaheb Bhaté to Kopargaon to get their pensions & there was therefore no class in the afternoon.  I was also not well & had motions. I went to see Sayin Maharaj at his evening stroll & on my return felt so sleepy that I lay down, while yet Bhishma was reading Dasbodh.

    Shirdi


    I slept very sound last night & felt correspondingly better in the morning.  After finishing my prayer, we held our Panchadasi class & during it saw Sayin Saheb go out.  We finished the Kutashtha deep & began the Dhyanasdipa. After the class I went to the Masjid as usual and Sayin Baba happened to be in a very good mood.  So I sat serving him.  He said he felt as if tied at the waist, chest & near the neck, that he thought Nagavely leaves were put on his eyes, and  on opening them to find out what the matter was, he was surprised to see something which he could not understand.  He caught a leg of it & then it lay down.  He tried to light his fire but the fuel being not quite dry would not ignite.  He thought he saw four dead bodies removed and could not understand whose they were.  Sayin Saheb kept on speaking in the same strain saying that his left upper & lower jaws were very painful and that he could not even drink water.

    The midday Arti passed off as usual & after the meal I lay down for a while and then sat reading Vakyavritti.  Later on we continued our Panchadasi class, till dark & then Saw Sayin Saheb at his stroll.  After the Wada Arti there was the Sheja Arti. The circle of lamp-jets could not be carried in the procession as usual & as placed in the little room where Sayin Saheb sleeps. It caused considerable inconvenience & I do not think Sayin Saheb liked it.  At night Bhishma read Bhagavat & Dasabodha. Balasaheb Bhaté attended the reading of the latter.

    Shirdi

    I attended the Kakad Arti.  Sayin Maharaj was in a very pleased mood & danced as he left the Chavadhi & went towards the Masjid.  We held our Panchadasi class & saw Sayin Baba going our during it.  I went to the Masjid after the class. There was a large crowd.  It gradually thinned.

    The midday Arti passed off as usual & after the meal  I lay down for a while. Bandoa want to Rahata for the weekly Bazar. In the afternoon we continued our Panchadasi class.  I did the reading and finished the Dhyanadeepa. Then I went to see the Sayin Saheb at his stroll. He was in a pleased mood.  I returned at Sunset.  At night there was the Wada Arti, & Bhishma read Bhagavat, Dasbodh and then did Bhajan during which he sang some verses from Geeta & Panchadasi of Baba Garde.  Mr Balasaheb Bhate was present during the recital of the latter.

    Shirdi

    In the morning Bhishma & Bandu got up early & had a musical prayer.  It was very helpful.  I prayed & then we had our Panchadasi class.  We saw Sayin Maharaj go out and later on I went to the Masjid.  Sayin Maharaj very kindly called me by name and as soon as I sat down, he commenced a tale of his having had four brothers.  He said he was very young and very intelligent. He used to play at his house which was very big and also at the Ashid Khana which was close by.  Near it used to sit a very old man who would not go into either the Masjid or the Ashuskhana, saying that the place where he lay was his.  His people did not wish it but Sayin Baba used to go to the Asher Khana also & approved of the programme carried out there.  The old man turned out to be his mother’s father & Sayin Baba always carried to him a bread & something to eat it with.  The old man was a leper, lost his fingers & toes and daily grew worse, until at last he refused food & died.  Sayin Baba played near him, did not suspect that death was so near, & talked about it to his mother who went to see her father.  When Sayin Baba went, he found the old man gone & his body converted into rice.  Nobody would take charge of the clothes of the old man.  Later on the rice disappeared, & the old man was born again but associated with mangs.  Sayin Baba gave him food & then the old man was born a third time as the son of Kondaji.  The boy played with Sayin Baba & died a few months ago. 

    At the midday Arti Sayin Baba approached me & touched my left arm, and held his hand waist high, just as we do to indicate a young man.  With the other hand he made a sign as we do to indicate a man passing away. He made a sign with his eyes.  I did not understand the whole & puzzled over it all day.  In the afternoon we continued our Panchadasi class, finished Natyadeepa & began Brahmanand. We saw Sayin Baba at his stroll & after the Wada Arti, attended the Sheja Arti. Bhishma finished Bhagavat at night & read Dasbodh. Balasaheb Bhaté came to it.
