15 October 1918: the passing of Shirdi Sai Baba (1)

The last days (from: Zeven dagen Shirdi Sai)


Shirdi Sai Baba and devotees2…Shirdi Sai Baba's health deteriorated increasingly, and the news that he would be leaving his body spread rapidly into the far periphery. The devotees read scriptures, shared food to the poor, and carried out all kinds of prayers and rituals for Baba's healing. Just before Vijayadashami it seemed that Baba's health was slightly improving, so the disciples had the idea that Baba would be better soon.

Therefore Nana Nimonkar got ready to leave for his hometown, because his daughter was about to give birth, and his family expected that he would be with them. He went to Baba to ask his permission, but Baba said: 'Ah, Nana! Don't you go away now, Bury me and then leave. "Because Shyama knew Nimonkars circumstances, he said to Baba: 'Baba, he is expected elsewhere urgently, Please let him go. "But Baba became furious and said,: ‘Shyama! Are you planning to kill my son? Did he molest your fathers property? What is against him staying here?"And while he turned to Nimonkar he said: ‘Nana, chill out, Allah will surely protect. Go only after I'm buried. "

The disciples who heard this, burst into tears at the thought that they would be separated from Baba. Then Baba said to all his devotees: "I'm not going to die. Really, For me there is no birth or death. I only wear body and let it go again. Eight years after I've given up this body, I will incarnate again to serve what is prepared now. '
