Heart to Heart
A Patient Welfare Officer at the Beas Hospital relates his experience with a patient:
An old man came hobbling into the hospital using two sticks for support. I asked him, “What is the problem?”
He said, “Eye problems.”
I said, “Why didn’t you bring your son to help you?”
He said, “I have heard that in Maharaj Ji’s house there is no need of a son or helper. The sevadars in Maharaj Ji’s house will help me.”
He was admitted and the eye specialists operated on him. When he recovered, he bowed to the Guru with whose grace he recovered the use of his eyes, without the help of his sons.
Labour of Love
During a question-and-answer session, Hazur Maharaj Ji spoke about the Great Master’s sense of humour:
I am yet to see anybody with such a sense of humour. Not only was he full of humour in his private life, but in public also. You see, for a speaker – being a speaker myself, I know – it is very difficult to be humorous with an audience, and especially with Sant Mat, which is such a serious subject, because you always talk of hell and heaven and karmas and sins and all those things. But when you see movies and photos of him, he is often roaring with laughter. He could not conceal his happiness or smiles even in the open satsang. The Mehtas and so many other people have taken pictures of him when he was laughing like anything – in an open satsang. It is difficult even in a small group to laugh and chat and express yourself, but he was able to express himself with laughter and happiness in the open satsang.
When you are happy within, you cannot help sharing happiness.
If you go to a miserable person, he will make you miserable; if you go to a happy person, he will make you happy. And saints cannot help radiating happiness.
