THE TOUCH OF THE MASTER

 

Wonderful is the power of the touch of Guru’s hand” – Sri Sai Satcharitra, Ch. VI.

 

John Ruskin, the distinguished writer-philosopher, was entertaining a few visitors. Among them was a little girl who had accompanied by her father. She was ecstatic to receive a gift from Ruskin, a delicate lace-edged handkerchief.

The little girl’s joy was short lived. Accidentally, she upset an inkpot, causing a stain on her precious handkerchief.

She was disconsolate with grief! When Ruskin returned home that evening, he found his youngest visitor with tears.

Apart from being a literary genius, Ruskin was also a gifted painter. He took the handkerchief from the little girl, and with the stroke of brush, turned the ugly stain into a beautiful flower.

“Is this my handkerchief?” asked the little girl, in wonder.

“Yes,” replied Ruskin. “The blot has bloomed into a flower!”

We can do the same with our life only if we can get a touch of the Master.
