Mule Shastri of Nashik:-

Mule Shastri was a conservative Brahmin from Nashik. In addition, he was a master of astrology and palms reading. Actually, he once came to Shirdi to meet Bapusaheb Buti for some other reason. He wanted to use one of the properties of Bapusaheb for his Vedic studies.

When Mule wanted to leave Shirdi, Bapusaheb told him to meet Sai Baba then leave. Thus, it is decided that next day morning Mule Shastri will leave with the permission from Sai Baba. Accompanying with Bapusaheb, Mule went to see Sai Baba.

As a consequence, Sai Baba was on His way towards Lendi Bagh. Incidentally, Mule requested Sai Baba to show His palm to read, but Baba refused. Thereafter Mule Shastri came back to his lodging.

That time preparations were on the way to Noon Aarti. Afterward, during Noon Aarti, Sai Baba asked Bapusaheb to bring a donation from Mule Shastri. Mule Shastri on hearing this bewildered and came back to Dwarkamai with Bapusaheb.

Mule Shastri was in the anticipation that Dwarkamai is an impious place. Thus he stood at a distance.

At the same time, he noticed Guru Gholap Swami in Sai Baba. Actually, Gholap Swami is the Spiritual Guru of Mule Shastri. Ultimately he falls down at Sai Baba`s feet. He started worshiping Sai Baba considering Him as Guru Gholap Swami. Everyone dumbfounded watching these miracles at Dwarkamai.

A story of A Doctor:-

Once one doctor came to Shirdi with one of the devotees of Sai Baba. At first, the doctor was not at all interested to visit Shirdi. He thought out Sai Baba as a Muslim.

For him, Lord Shri Ram is his Spiritual Guru. He will only bow to Lord Shri Ram, Who is his only God. For this reason, he was less excited about this Shirdi trip. Finally, Sai devotees persuaded him to accompany with them, telling no one will enforce him to bow down at Sai Baba.

Meanwhile, the devotees noticed the doctor seems to be in frontline while going for Sai Baba`s Darshan. Everyone got astonished to watch when Doctor started to bow down at Sai Baba at first. When asked about this to the Doctor. The doctor said he saw his Lord Shri Ram in Sai Baba.

The mind of the doctor is changed now. Finally, he had no doubt that Sai Baba is a Spiritual Guru. Next day also he saw the same vision in his dreams. This impression lasted 15 days in his mind. He returned his home with full satisfaction and memory of his Shirdi pilgrimage journey.
