There was once a poor farmer who was heavily in debt. The moneylender had given him only a few days till he could pay his dues. The farmer tried many ways to come up with money to clear his debt, but the debt was a great sum for him to clear in a short period of time.He was extremely worried and sad and was constantly haunted by visions of moneylender coming to him asking for money.A day before the date when money was due, the moneylender did visit the man. “I have just come to inform you that I shall come to collect the money that you owe me tomorrow morning. I hope you’ll have it ready by then. Otherwise, I’ll have you arrested”, threatened the moneylender.The farmer was terrified. He could not eat or sleep. All of a sudden, he remembered Sai Baba and prayed for his help.The next morning, the son of an old friend visited him. “I have come to ask for your help. I have some money here and I want to invest it in some business,” said the young man. “Will you please help me? Since my father is no more, you are the only person I can trust,” he added.“My son, I am the last person you should be asking for help. I myself am heavily in debt and I cannot repay the money. By this afternoon, I shall be in prison,” said the man.“Then you should use this money to pay your debts. You were a friend of my father. How can I not help you?” offered the young man.The farmer refused at first but on young man’s persistent insistence, he accepted the money and was able to pay off the debt.As he left, the young man said, “Baba has sent me here for a reason, and I am glad to have fulfilled it.”After this miracle, the farmer knew the greatness of Sai, for he had seen it with his own eyes!Sai Baba’s greatness spread to different parts of the country rapidly, especially with the popularity of the splendid and inimitable Kirtans sung by his devotees.Baba’s fame reached a helpless man who had a sick child. He had sought medicine from everywhere but could not find the right cure. Now, he could only rely on religion. When he heard about Sai Baba, he turned to his ailing child who frequently broke into fits and his mother who was struggling to control the disease. He decided that he must visit Shirdi with his family and try to get a cure for his son.A few days later, along with his wife and ailing son, he headed to Shirdi. When they reached, they directly went to the Dwarkamai mosque. There, as soon as the man brought the child before Baba, the child immediately fainted. His mouth started foaming and his whole body started shaking and he was covered in sweat. Although this happened to the boy frequently, the attack which he had this time was none like he ever had. This terrified his parents and mother started wailing.Seeing this, Sai Baba comforted the mother and said to her, “There is no need to fear. This attack is worse than before, I know, but you must have faith in me and I assure you that this is the last time he would be like this.”Just as he said that, the boy started to calm down. Both the parents were relieved and thankful towards Baba for his miracle. The boy’s sickness disappeared. These and similar such instances show Baba’s greatness.Rabinder Nath Kakarya
