A thief entered the kutia of Pavahari Baba, a great saint and devotee of Lord Ramachandra, who lived in the 19th century. As he made a bundle, Pavahari Baba woke up. The thief began running leaving stolen bundle behind but Pavahari Baba was faster. He caught up with the thief and offered him the bundle, and said, 'My God, please keep what you have taken.' The thief was too shocked for words and fell at the feet of the saint.
With the blessings of Pavahari, the thief became a sadhu and gradually gave up the ways of the world and became a sanyasi. Swami Vivekananda, was a great devotee of Pavahari and even considered accepting as a guru.
Babaji taught that one should lay like a dog at the feet of the guru if one wishes to progress in spiritual life.
May the example of Pavahari Baba inspire the love of God within us! Pavahari Baba ki jai!
