|Sai Geeta's relationship with Bhagawan was beyond that of the love|
between a pet and the master.
“I want to go Geetha, come on, come on, move,” said Swami, reaching up to stroke her cheek. And suddenly a diamond glistened, a dew drop that was the coalescence of her love for Him, a silent expression of her feelings: a tear found its way down the very cheek upon which His hand rested.
Immediately the ears moved a whisker. She had not stirred an inch. Perhaps she did not want to break the contact.
She stepped back a fraction – but only a fraction - her trunk still lay on the bonnet.
“Okay, okay, I will not go, I am going back to the ashram. Are you happy?” He asked her.
She visibly trembled with joy and replied in her own language in the affirmative. He, of course, understood.
“Good girl, good girl,” said Swami. Then turning to all the students gathered there, He announced,
|Swami saw the inherent Divinity in all living beings.|
|One day, when Swami came out of His Brindavan residence, He remarked pointing to the boys on one side and the|
deer on the other, "These are four-legged deer and these are two-legged dear!"
|Geeta came to Swami as a calf.|
|Sai Geeta never 'mixed' with the world. Thus, she became|
Sai's Gita - His Message.
