Don’t judge love from outward behavior

Once during the summer of 1959, when Deshmukh’s entire family came for Baba’s darshan, his daughter Sanjeevani complained to Baba, “Father is in your contact for years, but why is it that his behavior is a constant source of embarrassment to us? Compared to him we are much more sensible.”

Baba said, “I will show you the fruit of my contact.” He ordered Sanjeevani, “Strip yourself in front of everyone here!”

Astounded, she asked, “Before all these people, Baba? How could I do that?”

Baba then asked Deshmukh to strip and he began taking off his clothes. Stopping him, Baba turned to Sanjeevani, “Now, see with your own eyes what is the result of my contact. Your father does everything for me; you don’t! Don’t judge his love from his outward behavior.”, p4530
