Key to the Mind

Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiOne day when I was sitting by the tucket waiting for him to come out and give darshan, the thought occurred to me that would like to have my heart beat exactly the same rate as Maharajji's.

Just as soon as I thought that, there was a great commotion from within the building, a slamming of doors, and suddenly Maharajji burst through the outer doors onto the porch.

He briskly took his seat on the tucket and sat directly in front of me, his chest only some six inches away. I could feel my heartbeat and remained in constant consciousness of my heart beating in tune with his for some time.

Although Maharajji was lively and talked with many people, he kept his body turned in this position close to me. Then my mind began to wander - and immediately Maharajji flipped around so that he was sitting on the far side of the tucket, facing away from me. Stunned, the thought flashed through my mind, "Maharajji, if that really happened, look at me."

Quick as a flash he glanced directly at me and then away once more. He didn't look at me again for the rest of the darshan.
