In London, George Korab De Moers, who was ever intent on telling people about Shri Nathji, went to the Sikh Gurudwara in South Hall, London, one day, and informed the Sikhs there that Shri Nathji was in London. A learned Sant-a holy man-amongst them, stood up with reverence at the mention of Shri Nathji’s name.
Bhola Nathji! Is he in London? We have a great respect for him! Many regard him as an avatar! Please request him to speak to us!
A few days later, Shri Nathji was seen speaking at the Sikh Gurudwara to a large congregation, which included doctors, lawyers and professors amongst others. The sermon was so inspiring and Shri Nathji’s divine radiance so powerful that day that many amongst the Sikhs wept with emotion. After he had finished, the President of the Gurudwara got up and said:
It was a heart-rending lecture! We have been blessed by your presence here, today!
When Shri Nathji came out of the Gurudwara he discovered that his shoes were missing. They had been taken by someone by mistake. The shoes had been purchased for Shri Nathji by Priya Nath in America, at the Harvard Coop, and were very expensive. The Sikhs very generously sought to pay for them, but Shri Nathji would not hear of it, and returned home barefooted.
George Korab De Moers had such a great affection for Shri Nathji that he brought an extra pair of his shoes for Shri Nathji that very evening. Both, Shri Nathji and Mateshwari were greatly touched by the gesture, though they did not accept his shoes, as the man was in need of them himself.
Shri Nathji would frequently mention the shoes Priya Nath had purchased for him at Harvard and say again and again: He bought shoes worth forty dollars for me and shoes worth only ten dollars for himself.”
The shoes had had such a shine to them that whenever Shri Nathji would walk with them in London, people would stare at his feet. The loss of the shoes at the Sikh Gurudwara deprived the people of London of the chance of looking upon Shri Nathji’s feet.
