Baba

== BABA’S HUMOUR AT DMC ==

Namaskar,
In His divine manner, Baba made everyone laugh at this DMC with His
humourous comment.

HERE IS THE SCENE

It was May 1983 in Ananda Nagar and and general darshan was going on.

The Prabhat Samgiita was sung. It was PS #58, Dujane jakhan miliche
takhan, which is a song about marriage. As per the custom, after the
song was sung, then in Baba’s presence, selected Dadas read their purports.

The basic idea of the song is:

O human beings, when two people are being united in marriage, then you
all shower them with your good wishes. Amidst their burning sorrows,
amidst their garlands of joy, in their pains and pleasures, be with them
always.

Our human society is indivisible, neglecting not a single family. Let us
all sing and dance together. Accept everyone as your own.

With the sweet music of the earth, give this newly married couple your
affectionate words and wishes. Give them sweet messages of love. Fill
their lives with colour and shower them with your well wishing…

HERE COMES BABA’S HUMOROUS COMMENT

As everyone may recall, it was quite normal for Baba to add and correct
the purports read by various Dadas. This day was no different.

When the Dada finished reading His Hindi purport, Baba started reciting
this Sanskrit shloka about marriage.

Kanya’ varayate ru’pam, ma’ta’ vittam, pita’ shruti,
Ba’ndhavaha hitam icchanti, mis’t’a’nnam itare jana’h

While smiling, Baba then gave the following explanation:

At the time of marriage, the bride longs for a handsome groom; the
mother longs for a wealthy son-in-law; the father longs a well education
man for his daughter; the friends desire that in spite of all of life’s
difficulties the newlyweds should be happy; and others in attendance
hope that whatever may be, there should be the distribution of sweets.

With His wide smile, and looking across the pandal from left to right,
then He said: “We fall in this last group!”

Hearing this, everyone started laughing.

BABA’S SPECIAL MANNER

Being a Parama Purusa, Taraka Brahma and Sadguru, Baba used to be very
humorous and loving. Irrespective of anyone’s economic or social
standing, all margiis felt close to Him. By this way they came close
devotionally as well. Between God and His devotees there should not be
any distance or complex. Every margii felt Baba to be their own, by His
grace.

During His each and every discourse, Baba used to create certain
situations wherein everyone would laugh.

Baba says, “Laughter gives happiness.” (YP)

Namaskar,
Surya
