Shri Nathji often used to narrate how Indra, the king of the gods, and Virochan, the king of the asuras, evil-doers, went to the Ruler of the Heavens, Prajapati and sought to learn the ways of God – Brahmvidya –from him. Prajapati agreed to tell them of its mysteries provided that they served him with their own hands. And he asked both of them to dig in his fields. Virochan left after 25 years in a state of discontent, but Indra continued to dig the fields for 125 years, after which Prajapati was pleased to give him just a little bit of the knowledge he sought. Even 125 years of hard labour was not enough to entitle him to the fulness of God’s knowledge.
The longer that Narsinghh Das remained with Shri Babaji Bhagwan the greater was the Divine Grace that he received from him. It was like an iron staying close to a magnet so that some of the qualities of the magnet became transferred to the iron itself.
There was a time when Narsinghh Das went to his village for a short time. His friends and relatives were surprised to see him. A divine glow existed on his face and miracles followed him. People began to revere him and to bow before him. But he would not take any of the glory for himself and said it was all the Divine Grace of Shri Babaji Bhagwan that had given him this divine colour.
He returned to live with Shri Babaji Bhagwan and continued to serve him for a long time afterwards. He ultimately passed away at the feet of his Lord and Master. In the words of Shri Nathji who had written this verse:
Nikal jaaye dam tere kadmon ke neeche
Yehi dil ki hasrat yehi aarzoo hai
May I breathe my last at Thy Feet
This is my heart’s desire, my only wish.
How fortunate was the man who died serving a personality in whom he saw the Light of God. Serving him was just like serving the Invisible, Unseen God. If a person could not serve the Invisible Electric Current he could at least find fulfilment in serving the electric bulb, which contained the light of the electric current. Safeguarding the bulb would then be like serving the electric current from the powerhouse.
