Ordinary Problems

One day I was irritated by an itch on my head. Although I did not have lice in my hair, I suspected them to be the cause.

I asked Dwarkanath, who was standing nearby to look, but he did not find any.

At that very moment Maharaj sent for me.

I bowed before him and sat on the floor by his takhat. Without saying anything, he patted me on the head and rubbed it for a while.

I got much relief from it.

Both of us were silent, no one uttered a single  word.

I take it to be one of his many ways of showing that he was aware of even insignificant problems.
