Pandit Mutsaddilal was a resident of Amritsar. When news reached his ears that a Sage of repute had graced the city, he came immediately for the darshan and blessings of Shri Babaji Bhagwan. The moment he came before Shri Babaji Bhagwan he felt himself drowned in an ocean of Divine Love. All his worries vanished. He was a very learned man, a Gaur Brahmin of a very high caste. He would not ordinarily partake of food anywhere outside his own home. But whenever he came to Shri Babaji Bhagwan he would eat whatever was offered there. He would think of it as prasaad- a divine offering- which he could not refuse and which was a token of the blessings of Shri Babaji Bhagwan. He would say to people who wondered how he had consented to eat outside his home: “How can I refuse what is offered here? It comes directly from Him. Yet I must confess that I cannot retain this feeling when I go downstairs, away from this divine atmosphere.”
Shri Babaji Bhagwan lived on the first floor of the house.
One day when Pandit Mutsaddilal was returning home after attending the darbaar of Shri Babaji Bhagwan, he slipped and fell off the horse carriage that was taking him. He hurt himself severely, but was saved miraculously from any grievous injury.
He said: “O Bhagwan! To turn away from Thee is to endure the pain of the world! Would that Thou had given me a pain in the heart for the Love of Thee instead!”
However these words only depicted his humility. For, as Shri Nathji was to comment: “How could such a devotional thought have come to you unless you had been given the pain of His Love in the first place?”
