SATGATI TO A CHILD
M B Rege's wife (who was enceinte) and M B Rege visited Baba about 1914. Baba then told them "you have one of my gifts with you".
After the child was born, they took it to Baba.
Baba to M B Rege: Is he mine or yours.
M B Rege: Yours Baba.
Baba: Keep him with you as a charge from me.
18 months later, the child was dying. Rege prayed to Baba to take the child and give its soul rest at his feet and that its remaining karma would be undertaken by himself. The child then died like a yogi, with a smile on its face when life left it, by the crown of the head being drawn in with a hiss (i.e., Brahmarandhara gati - Brahma Randhra is the soft spot that can be experienced on the head of a newborn baby and this is the hole through which the liberated soul escapes to reach God. Swami Vivekananda reached God through such path as witnessed by the disciples).
When he next visited Shirdi,
Baba: "The child was mine and this man agreed to keep it. One day he said, you keep him with you and I shall take the karma. I took him and kept him here (pointing to Baba's heart) and he shall be here eternally.
