In a Flash of Lightning
|It was the monsoon
season. Shriji Maharaj, together with Gunatitanand Swami, Muktanand Swami,
other sadhus and devotees were in Gadhada. Daily, the sadhus listened
attentively to Maharaj’s discourses.
One day, after the discourses, Maharaj went to deliver a discourse to the women devotees.
It was a dark rainy night, with the occasional bolt of lightning illuminating and deafening the sky. In the middle of the night Muktanand Swami woke up and came out of the sadhus’ residence. As he looked into the night, he saw a lone dark figure standing under the roof. He called out, “Who’s standing there?”
“It’s me, Gunatitanand,” came the reply.
“Why are you standing here late at night in such weather?”
asked Muktanand Swami.
Muktanand Swami was surprised by the answer. He asked, “You have
Maharaj’s darshan all day. Isn’t that enough?”
Late that night, when Maharaj was returning to His room after the discourses it was still raining. Just at that time, a flash of lightning streaked across the sky and lit the dark night. In this flash of lightning, Gunatitanand Swami’s patience was rewarded by the darshan of Maharaj. Only then did Swami retire.
Gunatitanand Swami spent all his time engrossed in the darshan, company and worship of Maharaj. His devotion and love for Shriji Maharaj was supreme.
