Baba Testing the Strength of Vairagya

Baba Testing the Strength of Vairagya 

H S Dixit once came with a trunk full of silver rupees, which he had earned by working for a Native State, and placed it before Baba. 

H S Dixit: All this is yours. 

Baba: Is that so? 

Then Baba opened the lid and with both hands drew out all the contents and poured the same to all and sundry. In a few minutes, the trunk was empty. Mr. Garde, Sub-Judge of Nagpur and a friend of H S Dixit, watched the latter's face. H S Dixit had not the slightest regret or sorrow or concern at the disappearance of his hard earned fees. It was evidently to test and strengthen his vairagya that Baba scattered his money thus.
