"Swami prasadam isthara?" [Swami, will you give me prasadam (vibhuti).] As I asked this point, there was a sudden reaction from Swami - a reaction that I least expected.
He looked at me and shook His head vehemently to say, 'No'! I was taken aback. It was not because of His refusal to give me a vibhuti packet but because of the vehemence of His refusal! He once again looked at me and shook His head to say 'No'. I was sure that I wasn't getting any vibhuti packet that morning! How did Sai Krishna's prescription fail me? And here, when I say Sai Krishna, I am referring not to my colleague but my Swami who is as mischievous as the playful Krishna in these matters. Wasn't He the one who had said that He would give only when He was asked?
