17. Begging Alms

For the purpose of propagating Satsang the sadhus travelled extensively from village to village. They lived by begging alms. Yogiji Maharaj took the blind, aged Bhagwatswarupdasji with him. He took great care of him, making sure he did not stumble and carried the alm-bag of provisions (Joli) himself. One day Karsang Bapu remarked, "Why don't you bring a young sadhu as your companion? It would save you a lot of hassle." Yogiji Maharaj replied, "It is a privilege to have an aged sadhu. How else can one serve an old sadhu? Having him with me I get the opportunity of listening to his spiritual knowledge and the service of carrying the alm-bag."
