ANOTHER GIFT OF LIFE TO TATYA

ANOTHER GIFT OF LIFE TO TATYA

An epidemic spread all over Shirdi in 1918. Consequently, many people passed away. Tatya too became a victim to that incurable disease. His body began to grow lean and thin. His eyes were sunken and he became bed-ridden. Sai Baba became miserably upset at the deteriorating health of Tatya Kote.

The devotees of Sai Baba failed to understand as to why Sai Baba had kept quiet, in spite of seeing Tatya's worse condition. As Sai Baba had been blessed with the divine powers, he could give Tatya another lease of life. Anyhow, one day Mhalsapathi found Sai Baba all alone. So, he informed Sai Baba that Tatya's condition was growing from bad to worse and he feared that Tatya might lose his life any time. He further appealed to Sai Baba to do something to make Tatya survive the epidemic.

Sai replied in a low voice, "Mhalsapathi, it is true that Tatya is going to breathe his last. I assured Bayaja that I would do my best to fulfil my promise to Mother Bayaja. I will not let Tatya suffer at all Mhalsapathi, believe it that Tatya will start recovering from tomorrow." Saying so, Sai Baba raised his finger and Mhalsapathi left the place.

On September 28, 1918, Sai Baba had high fever since morning. At Sai Baba's sudden indisposition, all his followers became anxious. They offered their prompt services to Sai Baba. But Sai's fever began to rise. After three days, he gave up meals. Gradually, his body grew weaker and thinner.

 

On the other side, a miracle occurred. As Sai Baba's health was growing from bad to worse, Tatya's fever was decreasing continuously. After a few days, Tatya recovered fully whereas Sai Baba's condition became very serious. Now, Sai Baba's followers realised that Sai Baba had invoked his own death to save Tatya's life, as he had given his word of honour to 'Mother Bayaja' to save her son's life at all costs. Sai Baba's greatness and mercy astounded not only his own followers, but also his rivals and their hearts were filled with great reverence for Sai Baba.
