Amazing Story Of the Locket.

Share Author: Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on 9:22 PM
Dear Sai Readers ,How Baba knows everything in advance we all Sai children know, when we read Sai Satcharitra there are so many leelas full of such stories. So many devotees feel every minute- every day Baba taking care and knowing their problem or their mind, their emotion everything in advance .I am sure there wont be any such single sai devotee who do not believe that Baba knew everything in advance whether it was past, present, future, previous birth or rebirth....HE Is The Almighty calling HIMSELF "Servant of the Lord”. Here is story which clearly shows the omnipotent Baba and His lovely ways of carrying out things.

To show how much Sai Baba loved Tatyasaheb, his grandson Shri Raghunath Vishwanath Noolkar, told a incident along with a copy of a letter dated 20/12/1912 in Shri Shama's own handwriting as a proof.

Here is the grand-son's own words :
"Our grandfather died at Shirdi in 1911 at the age of 48 years. Afterwards my father Vishwanath(Tatyasaheb's younger son ) to satisfy the wishes of our grand-mother Smt Janakibai got a locket prepared, in which on one side there was Baba's photo and on the other side was my grandfather Tatyasaheb.

The locket was sent to Shirdi by registered post, the idea was to get it back after Baba touching it and blessing it. When the parcel reached Shirdi, what actually happened at the Masjid, was conveyed to father by Shama in a letter in Marathi language, a photostat copy of which is given below:

Shirdi Date 20-12-1912
Humble Salutations,
Yesterday on Thursday the 19th instant, at the time of Arati, the postman delivered to Sai Maharaj the locket parcel sent by you. Sai Maharaj took it and moving the box round His face, kissed it. He then said to me,
"There are two persons in this"
and handed over the parcel to me. On opening the box I found in it the locket with photos and the letter from your mother. I read out the letter to Sai Maharaj and handed over the locket to Him. He held the photo in His hand for about 15 to 20 minutes and showed it to almost every person come for Arati, saying,
"This person took Me away with him."
These exact words said by Sai Maharaj have been written down and sent to you by me. The locket has been handed over to me for safe custody.
My respects to your mother.

From the above letter, we can imagine how much Baba loved Tatyasaheb Noolkar. By saying "There are two persons in the locket", Baba has, as if, equated Tatyasaheb with Himself and certified the advanced spiritual status of Tatyasaheb and looking at Tatyasaheb's photo in the locket, Baba said, ‘This person took Me away with him", it seems as if Baba has confirmed that, after death, Tatyasaheb's soul has been merged with that of Baba.
No wonder at the end of this story in Ch.31 of Shri Sai Satcharita, Hemadpant sings :
"Blessed is Noolkar, who in the end, left his body at Shirdi, absorbed in repeating God's name."
"Whatever form one meditates on,at the time of death, the same form he is born with. If one is absorbed at the feet of Lord, one is not reborn again."
