The economic condition of Mavji Mistry, a mason of Rajkot, was very poor. He came to Junagadh and prayed to Swami. Swami, out of grace, asked him to purchase some grams and parched rice. Outside the mandir he met his Muslim friend, Musabhai, who gave him one more ana and told him to give him some of the prasad that Swami would give to him. Mavjibhai went to the market, bought the grams and parched rice for two anas and offered them to Swami. Swami offered it to Thakorji and then took just two grains from it. The all-knowing Swami distributed some prasad among the sadhus and gave the rest to Mavji, telling him to share it with Musabhai. Besides this, Swami gave him blessings to go to Karachi and start a contract business.
Mavji was puzzled and informed, “I don’t know anybody there.”
Swami replied, “You know me!”
Mavjibhai felt encouraged, but he had no fare to reach Karachi. Swami was omniscient and told him, “Your mother has buried Rs. 100 in an earthen pot under the grinding wheel. Ask for it.”
Swami then instructed Mavji to make Musabhai his partner in the business. Swami was pleased even with the little service by Musabhai.
Mavabhai reached Rajkot and asked for some money from his mother. At first she flatly refused, “I do not have any money.” But when Mavabhai told her about the order of Swami and pointed out the exact place, she gave him the money.
When Mavabhai disembarked on the port at Karachi, by chance he met an Englishman who gave him a big contract without any recommendation from anyone. Mavabhai earned a handsome amount from this contract and gradually the company of Mava-Musa achieved great success. In this way, as a result of Swami’s blessings, Mavjibhai’s poverty vanished and he earned a fortune and rendered a lot of services in Satsang.
