Kaka Saheb Dixit's vairagya..!!

Kaka Saheb Dixit's vairagya developed steadily along with his love of the Guru....  

His Guru both by example and precept showed him the absurdity of the worldly man's desire for much wealth and how little was necessary even to an ordinary sadhaka....  

Especially after Baba had assumed all his responsibilities, he noted how needless it was for him to spend attention and time or energy as before to acquire or preserve wealth..... 

On one occasion when he came to Shirdi, he came along with a trunkful of rupees (may be Rs. 1000), which he earned in a Native State....  

He came to Baba, placed the trunk before him, showed him the rupees, and said, 'Baba, all this is yours'. Baba at once said, 'Is that so?' and plunged both his hands in the box full of rupees and gave away heaps of rupees to the people that crowded round him like bees for honey...In a few moments, the trunk became empty.... 

This incident is narrated by Garde, 
a Sub Judge friend of H. S. Dixit,  
who was watching all the time the face of Dixit to study the reaction on his face to the rapid scattering of his hard earned money by Baba.....  

Though any other person in his position would have felt the loss of money very bitter. Kaka Saheb was unmoved.....  

That showed how he had hardened in his vairagya at the feet of Baba..... 
He learnt again that the silver so highly valued by the world was but mud to the Sadguru, who was a "Sama loshta asma Kaanchanah" i.e. one to whom a cloud, a stone and gold were equally indifferent....

Satguru Sri Sainaath Maharaaj ki Jai.
