A devotee: Baba, do spirits really exist?


Baba: Yes. We have nothing to do with them.


R.A.T.: One night went out. He saw a specter under a tree, got frightened and then thinking of Baba, got courage and went back to his lodging at Shirdi. Next morning Baba himself when meeting him referred to the topic.


Baba: What did you see last night?


R.A.T: I saw a spirit.


Baba: That was I.


R.A.T: No, Baba. It was a spirit.


Baba again: That was I. Go and ask your Ayi.


R.A.T: Went and asked his mother, who said that all spirits were under Baba's control.


Baba: And Am I not inside all of them. Hello! Bhutas etc., will do nothing (no harm) to us. Have I not told you this last year.
