Blessed Devotee who Experienced Baba’s Miracle before 1918
Baba safe guarding doctor’s son from the devil
In 1917, during Vaishak month a doctor, his wife and son came to Shirdi. He hoped that Baba would drive away the evil spirit that tormented his son.
In the Dwarkamai, the doctor thought that Baba’s grinding of wheat and throwing it at the outskirts was futile and just a superstition. Baba reading his thoughts asked him to come at 3.00 P.M. Exactly at 3.00 P.M.he and his family went to Dwarakamai. The doctor and his son sat and started massaging Baba’s legs upon Baba’s orders.
Just then, an ugly, devilish looking lady came and grabbed his son, wanting to take him away. Baba, undaunted, gave her a blow with His satka. She fled, crying loudly. Baba then said, “She came to eat your son. She was deprived of her ration. I did not throw the flour at the outskirts today, as you thought it was unwanted. But I drove her away with My satka. Now she will not torment your son”.
The father and the son were filled with awe at Baba’s Antarjnan and kindness. Then Baba gave them permission to go on the next day
