The Lord Never Fails
It was a bright sunny day. Mulji Brahmachari prepared the Lord's breakfast. As Maharaj ate, he suddenly announced, "Today we have to go to Dangra." "But Maharaj, I thought we were going to..." returned the Brahmachari. "No, we go to Dangra today," said Maharaj firmly. The Brahmachari gave a surprised look at the Lord. He didn't say anything. He knew there was a hidden purpose behind the Lord's every action.
Far away from the hustle and bustle of life in Gadhada, Khima Patel in the village Dangra had just decorated a beautiful swing he had made between two trees. He knew it to be impossible, but he wished Maharaj would grace the swing. Under the hot sun, along the dusty tracks, Maharaj left with a puzzled group following obediently.
Mulji Brahmachari could see the enthusiasm glowing on Maharaj's face. No one looks his best when being baked in the sun but Maharaj certainly looked attractive. Each step, filled with expectation, led the group to the house of Khima Patel. Khima's surprise was beyond belief. His joy was unbounded. Surely his Lord has come to fulfill his heart's desire! Maharaj smiled, as His eyes came to rest on the swing. "This is a beautiful swing," He said. With that He stepped forward and sat down on it. Then softly pushing with his toe, He started to gently swing Himself.
With tears in his eyes, Khimabhai fell at the Lord's feet. His only wish had been fulfilled. Laughing indulgently, Maharaj said, "We have only descended on this earth to satisfy the spiritual desires of Our devotees." #bapsekparivar #pramukhswamimaharaj #mahantswamimaharaj #divine #soul #joy #peace #love #care #happiness #jayswaminarayan
