Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Sri Sai Baba of Shirdi
“Give a black dog, some…in front of the Lakshmi temple.”
Bala Ganpat Shimpi suffered much from a malignant type of malaria. He tried all sorts of medicines, but in vain. The fever did not abate a jot and so, he ran to Shirdi and fell at Baba’s feet. Baba gave him a strange recipe.
“Give a black dog some morsels of rice mixed with curd in front of the Lakshmi temple!”
Bala did not know how to execute this recipe but no sooner he went home, then, he found rice and curd. After mixing them together, he brought the mixture near the Lakshmi temple, when he found a black dog waving its tail. He placed the curd and rice before the dog. The dog ate it and, wondrously, Bala got rid of his malaria!
