1967, JANUARY, INDIA
HERE IS A INCIDENT AS TOLD BY Acarya Amitananda Avadhuta and Acarya Svarupananda Avadhuta in January 1967
We were sitting with Beloved Baba under the wood apple tree in Ananda Nagar, West Bengal, India. We used to sit in a circle around Him on His blanket, and HE would say ‘my four children at the four corners’.
It was a clear moonlit night. Beloved Baba sat for a long time staring at the stars.
HE was very serious, not speaking, thinking something very deeply. No-one dared to speak. Then Acarya Amitanandaji asked, ‘Baba what are you looking at?’
Beloved BABA replied ‘I am seeing the position of the stars “Are they telling you something?’ HE answered “Yes they are”. What are they saying? “They are saying that a very inauspicious time is coming soon” this was not very happy news and we all felt rather sorry.
Then Beloved Baba said ‘But if it is coming, I want that it should come quickly.’ We asked Him, Can’t it be avoided? ‘HE answered ‘No. If it must come, it is better if it comes early. When bad days come, then we realize the value of the good days.’
