HAVE YOU HAD MY DARSHAN?

Bal Natu

 
During Baba's 1953 visit to Eluru, Ramamohan Rao once asked Baba to grant him such a darshan that he would only be aware of Baba and nothing else. Baba told him that he should not ask for such a thing, but then, some time later, when they happened to be together, Baba placed His hand on Ramamohan Rao's chest. Instantly the world vanished and all Ramamohan Rao saw, wherever he looked, was Baba.

In this dazed state, Baba led him to the dais where a very brief program had been arranged, but Ramamohan Rao did not see any of the people there, he only saw Baba. A little later, Baba touched him on the shoulder and the experience ended — he again became aware of the people, the hustle and bustle around him.

In 1954, as in 1953, Baba was staying in Katta Subba Rao's garden. As they walked in the garden Baba casually asked Ramamohan Rao, "Well, have you had My darshan?"

"Yes."

"What do you think about it now?"

Ramamohan Rao folded his hands to Baba and replied, "Please Baba, I do not want that darshan hereafter. How can I be your worker if I am in that state? Bless me so that I may work for You, Baba. I wish to work for You, live for You and die for You. That is my only request."

Baba looked immensely pleased.
