WHILE TALKING TO A SAINT ONE SHOULD NOT KEEP ANYTHING UP ONE'S SLEEVE
One person had taken a leave of absence from his work for ten days. ShriMaharaj asked him, " With how many days of leisure have you come here ?" He said," Six days ." In the remaining four days he intended to perform some household tasks. ShriMaharaj quickly said, " Tell me the total number including those that you have kept up your sleeve." Embarrassed, he said, " Actually I have taken leave for ten days." Upon this ShriMaharaj only said, " If he, to whom one comes with the intention of obtaining love for God, is not able to know even this much, then how can he bestow love for God on the disciples ?"
