Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Once, Pujya Swamiji was travelling in a passenger train from Akkalkot, towards Pune, after worshipping the Shrine of Sri. Akkalkot Maharaj, the embodiment of Sri. Dattatreya; contemporary of Shirdi Sai Baba. He had a group of Avadhoothas (Fakirs) for company. These Avadhoothas were simple peasants and were returning from a pilgrimage. All of a sudden, the train stopped on the way awaiting some signalling clearance; and there was no movement or any indication for an abnormally prolonged period.
After waiting for a while, these Avadhoothas quietly alighted from the train, chanting in chorus…………
GAN GAN GANATH!
GANATH BOTHE !!
THESE WORDS ARE THE QUOTATIONS FROM THE HIGHLY REVERED SAINT SRI. GAJANAN MAHARAJ OF SHEGAON.
No sooner than these words were uttered, the train sprang to a sudden motion and the rest of the journey was continued for the passengers. Our Pujya Swamiji delightfully observed:
“The Lord resides in every being – inanimate or living, and gives movement to and controls every activity.“
That is how, when the name of the Lord was called, He came to the rescue of people and took them away to their destination.
It is not in our duty or scheme of Life to interpret and reason out every incident and development; but to accept the Lord’s Will and pray to Him for ferrying us across this chasm of existence to a meaningful destination.
