One journalist asked a varkari devotee of vitthal who goes to pandharpur , what's your age,
Varkari: 80 years
Journalist: since how long you are visiting this pandharpur
Varkari: since 70 years.
Journalist: have you seen vithoba once, At Least once.
Varkari: no beta, not yet.
Journalist: then why do you come every year, do you believe He is there?
Varkari: can I ask you a question, from where you have come
Reporter: from Pune.
Varkari: do people keep pet dogs in Pune, have you seen any?
Reporter: ya, each house has a dog
Varkari: in village also we keep dogs, that follows us to our farm to protect from thieves. At the dead of night one dog sees the thief it starts barking, by hearing this dog another starts barking, like ways all around surrounding 100s of dogs started barking but among the hundred dogs 99 have not seen the thief but keeping the faith in this 1st dog they start barking.
Likewise Thukaram ji, Sant Jnaneshwar, Namdev,they have seen the vithoba so I have faith in them.one day I can also have darshan of vitthal. If animals can keep their faith in another animal, being a human being why can't we have faith in another human being?
