Once when Satguru Sai Satramdas Sahib was taking bath in a river , a beggar came and asked him for Rs. 5/- Sai Satram das Sahib said “Badhshah (king) what are you going to do with Rs. 5/- why don’t you ask for food or any thing else”. Beggar replied, “you have called me Badhshah, (king) and money only makes you king, but food is what everyone easily gets to eat”.Saijan Smiled and asked his devotee Bhai Raman to go and lift one corner of the mattress which was placed near them, and take Rs 5/- from there.
Bhai Raman who himself had placed the mattress knew, that there was no money under the mattress, but since he had to obey Saijan, he went and lifted the entire mattress and did not find any money under it, he came back to Saijan and told him about it.
Saijan asked Bhai Raman that how did he lift the mattress.
Bhai Raman said that he lifted the entire mattress but could not find any money under it.
Saijan Smiled, and asked Bhai Raman to go back, and lift only one corner of the mattress, and beloved God will shower his blessings.
Bhai Raman went back and this time he lifted only one corner of the mattress, and he was astonished to see brand new coins of Rs. 5/- under the mattress. He was so happy to see Saijan’s miracle that he started singing and praising the pious name of Saijan.
The beggar who was noticing Bhai Raman Said,
“Bhai Raman, always believe Shehenshah Satguru’s true words, then only you will get true Mukti. Only a Shehenshah can turn a beggar into a king, you lifted the entire mattress, and said that nothing was under it, whereas Saijan asked you to lift, just one corner of the mattress. The whole galaxy is tied with his divine rope. He can do what ever he wants, what do you think, am I going to become a king after getting Rs. 5/-? I was just taking his blessings and discarding my misfortunes , now when I go to the court of the lord Almighty, I can hold my head up like a king, because I have had the Divine Darshan of a True Satguru and I have got Mukti from all the sins of this materialistic world.”
Such was the greatness of Shehensha Satguru Sai Satramdas Sahib.
