In Frankfurt, Germany, a very distressing incident occurred. Shri Nathji, Mateshwari and Pran Nath booked a room in a hotel. Leaving Mateshwari in the room, Shri Nathji and Pran Nath went out to purchase vegetarian food. They drove to a restaurant, purchased the eatables, and sought to find their way back to the hotel.
Suddenly, Pran Nath recalled that they had not bothered to note down the name of the hotel. Nor could they recollect the street or the area in which the hotel was located! Their knowledge of German was nil, and the Germans they stopped on the road could not understand them.
Pran Nath drove the car frantically from street to street, searching for the hotel. Now and then they would meet a passer-by they could communicate with, but what could they ask him? They had booked themselves into a hotel. But they remembered neither the name of the hotel nor the area in which it was located. It seemed an impossible situation.
Hours passed. Mateshwari grew anxious in the hotel room. It was late in the night. There was no means of communicating with Shri Nathji. It was an awful moment for Mateshwari as well as Shri Nathji and Pran Nath.
And then Shri Nathji recalled seeing the railway station somewhere in the vicinity of the hotel. They asked for directions to the railway station, and finally arrived at the hotel.
Mateshwari had been greatly worried about them. For a moment it had appeared as if they had lost Mateshwari. Perhaps it was a forerunner of what was to come in the future when Shri Nathji would lose Mateshwari forever on this earth.
