In 1814 CE (Samvat 1870) Dada Khachar’s father, Abhel Khachar, passed away. So sweets, such as, sata, jalebis, were prepared in the darbar everyday as part of the post-funeral rites. Maharaj himself served all the sadhus. Swami also would sit in the line to dine with the others. He would enjoy the bliss of Maharaj’s murti and eat whatever was served in his bowl. Along with other sadhus, Maharaj fed Swami so much that Swami became ill after some time due to an excess intake of sugar. His digestive system became weak. He could digest only milk; so Maharaj instructed him to take milk only.
Thereafter, when Swami was travelling in the Nagher region (near Una) in Krupanand Swami’s group, he used to consume coconut with milk. This made him all the more weak; but he never cared for his body. Once Maharaj gave him darshan in the form of a Jogi by a well on the outskirts of Kovaiya village and said, “Sadhuram! Why is your belly bloated? It seems you have drunk excess milk. I am concerned about your body...” And so saying he disappeared. Swami stopped taking milk, realizing the wish of Maharaj, and observed this rule for the rest of his life.
Thereafter, Krupanand Swami arrived at Gadhada. Swami was also with the group. Here, Maharaj gave rotlo and adad dal for Swami to eat. Then he added a lot of chilli powder to the adad dal. In addition, he gave chilli sauce. Swami was not used to such spicy, hot food. But he ate everything that was served, regarding it as prasad from Maharaj. As a result of this, he suffered a bout of diarrhoea. So he went to a place on the bank of river Ghela. He would sleep there, go to empty his bowels and take a bath. This continued for three days, after which he recovered from the ailment. Then Swami came for Maharaj’s darshan. Maharaj was very happy to see him in good health.
