Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Hazrat Tajuddin Baba of Nagpur
HIS SYMPATHY AND KINDNESS
Baba always showed sympathy and kindness to the old, the poor, the downtrodden and the sick and oppressed. He could read the silent agony of the tormented souls at the very first glance. His solacing balm was spontaneous, direct, sweet, and pacifying. It needed no lengthy rationalization.
One day the Baba was walking along a street in a village 14 miles away from Nagpur, followed, as usual, by hundreds of devotees. There in Baba saw an old man and woman in front of a dilapidated house grinding grain with extreme difficulty, panting with exhaustion owing to old age. The softhearted saint at once went to their aid, removed them from the grinding stone and did the grinding Himself to the surprise of all onlookers. He then gathered up the flour for them and left the place without uttering a word. His followers could not help shedding tears at this divine love of the saint for the poor and feeble humanity.
