IT MUST BE SO!
Baba was standing under a tree while Kumar, alert to his duty, stood nearby with an umbrella in his hand. Baba asked him, "Why should such a thing happen?"
Kumar promptly replied, "Because you wanted it that way." This was another way of saying that nothing happens unless Baba wills it.
Baba appeared pleased with Kumar's ready reply and, with a serious air about Him, gestured, "It must be so!"
Then, turning to others and pointing at Kumar, Baba added, "This man does not want to understand who is God or what is a Perfect Master, but he loves Me, knows how to obey Me well, and also to say the right thing at the right time." Kumar shyly looked at Baba, a little embarrassed at the fulsomeness of Baba's praise; the rest of the mandali smiled in appreciation of Kumar's qualities, as well as his being put on the spot!
