Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
GAVE HIS OWN COT TO UDDHAVA, AS A REPLACEMENT FOR THE KITCHEN FUEL.
On a stormy night, the people of the town, directed an old Brahmin to Saint Eknath’s house. He was an unknown traveler caught up in heavy rains and Sant Eknath at once ordered a fire to be lit to cook food and dry his clothes. But Girijabai’s store of wood was soaking wet in the rain and she could not start a fire though she tried very hard.
Saint, Eknath without any hesitation, gave His own cot to Uddhava, as replacement for kitchen fuel. Saint Eknath again showed that the needs of a guest come first, no matter what. He was fully gratified to see the Brahmin fed, clothed and rested.
Freed from any selfish motive, Saint Eknath’s compassion and kind heart worked wonders with others.
