Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0913078522, Paperback)As Baba began to walk, His sandals got stuck in the mud, so He simply left them and continued to walk briskly, barefooted, towards the Meeting pandal. Some of His lovers eyed his footprints intently. Through this simple act, Baba was participating in the inconveniences that the pilgrims were going through.
This seemingly insignificant incident had a profound effect on a young Baba lover from Dehra Dun, the youngest of the pilgrims; he was only sixteen. On his arrival on the previous evening, he abhorred the muddy pathways. At one point his feet had gotten stuck, and he had thought, "Does Baba even know the discomfort that walking in this mud causes us? He will come in His car wearing comfortable sandals!"
This boy happened to be near the kitchen when Baba visited the dining hall. As he looked at Baba, his thought from the previous evening came back to him. At that moment, he saw Baba’s sandals get stuck in the mud, and observed how Baba left them immediately and continued on His way with bare feet. He immediately felt sorry for his thoughts, and later confessed his mistake tearfully to Baba. Those who come into the love orbit of the Avatar receive timely and significant responses to their doubts and worries through His external actions or His casual remarks. There are many such instances, but it isn’t possible to recount them all here.
