Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


CHEWING UP THE TWO STONES!


In 1884, Tajuddin’s Regiment reached Saugor. One day in Saugor, Tajuddin was lured by a melodious voice, which led him to a lonely wasteland nearby where a famous ‘Chishti’ saint Hazrat Dawood Shah lived. He used to spend much of his time in meditation in the company of the saint every day after his Army duties. When his grandmother learnt at Kamptee that he was not staying in his tent at night, she rushed to Saugor suspecting that Tajuddin had fallen into some evil company.

She stealthily followed him at night but found that he was meditating with a Muslim saint. Next morning, when Tajuddin returned home, she served him with breakfast. But Tajuddin said he would eat his own laddu and peda and started chewing up the two stones he had in his hand. She was surprised at this phenomenon and realised that Tajuddin’s devotional life had given him some divine powers, and that her suspicions about his character were wrong. Even after Hazrat Dawood Chishti’s death, Tajuddin continued his meditations and mujahedas (spiritual practices) often near the deceased’s tomb.

No master is comparable to any other master. Each master is so unique that he is incomparable. If you look into them with no comparison in your mind you find the same reality-hence darshan. They are one in their innermost core. Each master is unique, and yet represents the universal.

Hazrat Tajuddin Baba of Nagpur

“DON’T TAKE WHAT IS NOT YOURS”


Once a certain Nawab came to seek Baba’s blessings in the success of his litigation concerning his Rs.18 lakhs worth of property. One day the Nawab was going out with Baba in his coach and they saw a man-eating a roti from an old cloth on his head. He advanced towards Baba to pay his homage. Baba Tajuddin got down from his coach, took the rotis from the man, sat down under a tamarind tree and started eating them. He divided one roti into two parts and gave one piece to the Nawab who was with Him, and said, “If you take too much, you will have motions.” He then asked for beedis and the Nawab offered the same. At the same time, the Nawab placed his legal document before the Baba for his blessing. The saint kept the burning beedi upon the papers and said, “THIS IS OUR SEAL.” The Nawab later learned that the property had to be divided like the Baba’s roti. The Baba warned, “Don’t take what is not yours.”

Hazrat Tajuddin Baba of Nagpur

A person by name, Hanumantha Rao came to Baba Tajuddin and devoted himself totally to the worship of the saint. He learnt that several Harijans were being benefited by rendering service to the Baba. He was an employee in the secretariat. So he hoped that if he too became a Muslim, Baba Tajuddin would grace him. No sooner these thoughts arose in his mind than the Baba turned to him and asked him to get some book. Hanumantha Rao had a copy of the Bhagavad-Gita with him, which he gave to the Baba.

The saint glanced through it, turning it from side to side and said:

What, we are in this!”

Hanumantha Rao understood what the saint implied and was thrilled.

The implication is that the spiritual truth of devotion to God leading to perfection which Baba symbolized is there in the Bhagavad-Gita also, a Hindu scripture. Baba made no distinction between religions. He even indicated that the followers of all religions should adhere to their own traditions and that there was no need for any one to become a Muslim for salvation or to earn His (Baba’s) grace.

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


Hazrat Tajuddin Baba of Nagpur* 1(1861-1925AD.)

“You buffalo, do you play tricks with me? Run away.” ” I will kill you if you don’t obey.”

Many were the people who flocked to Tajudddin Baba to cure them of deformities of body. A wealthy Marwari Seth came from Delhi to Sakardara. His legs were mere useless appendages and he had to crawl his way to Baba whom he found in a restless mood: At the approach of the Seth, he sprang to his feet in a rage and kicked him saying: “You buffalo, do you play tricks with me? Run away.” The Marwari was so frightened at this unwelcome gesture. But Baba Tajuddin did not calm down. He shouted: “Don’t you hear? I’ll kill you if you don’t obey. I say run or I will beat you.” The Seth immediately ran from the place to the wonder of the people who saw this amazing feat of the saint!

So many people need helping in this world. And God or Guru does help them, through those who are willing instruments (Medium) of His Love.

Nobody in the world is able to understand a Sathpurusha’s actions.


1* Nagpur is well connected by road, railways and air.
