Bhau Kalchuri

Later that night beneath the stars, Baba served an unusually delicious meal under the light of petromax lanterns. The mandali began talking about food, and the conversation turned to the gluttony of the Brahmins of Benares.

Baba reminisced about the time he had gone to Benares with Upasni Maharaj in 1919. He narrated that no one except a Brahmin was allowed inside the sacred temple there, and so before he could enter with Maharaj he had to change his clothes to disguise himself and wore a dhoti-shirt like a Brahmin.

Inside the temple, Maharaj commanded the gathering of Brahmins to bow to Merwan and declared, "Merwan is Jagat Narayan — the Lord of the universe! Touch his feet!" And the Brahmins did as Maharaj instructed.
