As a mother amuses her little son with a sweet talk, you also enrapture your devotees. For those devotees who have sufferings, you endure their problems by taking them upon yourself thus removing their difficulties. For those who are dedicated to Lord, you quickly give them Darshan. You must be terribly troubled in your body (Baba suffered for His devotees, by taking upon himself their physical afflictions). Let us Hail, Hail… Refrain…..Kshmaa shayana sundara hee shobhaa – suman shej tyaavareen ho

Forgive us and lie down on that beautiful flower-decked bed. Please accept some of the services your devotees render in your worship.

Aataa Swaamee…

The swing-bed of Faith and devotion has been suspended from the rafters (Like the woodwn plank which Baba had hang up from the rafters of the Dwarkamai mosque, for His bed) in my heart. Baba, I have hung it from the rafters. With a pure and virtuous mind I have made your bed. Now…Dwaitaache kapaat laavuni ekatra kele – Baba ekatra kele
