Swami, the manifest form of Brahma, travelled to reveal the true identity of Purushottam Narayan to numerous jivas and to help them overcome maya. In every event of his life it is easy to discern his singular devotion towards Shriji Maharaj.
Once, on his way from Gadhada to Vartal, Maharaj arrived at Barwala with a group of sadhus and devotees. Here, devotees offered ladoos to Maharaj and his group. Swami also got one ladoo as his share, but he was not interested in it. He was totally engrossed in the murti of Maharaj and craved for his darshan every minute. Compared to his enjoyment of the murti of Maharaj, the joys of other worldly pleasures did not interest him. When Maharaj travelled from one village to another he often went on horseback. So to have his darshan Swami would have to run. Moreover, according to the rules, a sadhu could not go alone. Therefore, he would have to have the company of another sadhu who would be prepared to run with him.
So Swami requested one sadhu, “I wish to run with the horse in order to have the darshan of Maharaj. If you’ll give me company in running I’ll give you my ladoo.” The sadhu was tempted by the offer and consented. In this way, Swami ran backwards through hedges, fields, thorns, etc. without caring for his body, remaining constantly engaged in Maharaj’s darshan. Such was the yearning of Swami for Maharaj’s darshan!
