20. Exceptional Devotion

Yogiji Maharaj and Nirgundas Swami were travelling by bullock cart from Sarangpur to Gadhada. It was 4.00 p.m. and time to offer water to the murti of Harikrishna Maharaj. But there was no sight of water anywhere. Two hours later on seeing a river, Yogiji Maharaj told the driver to halt. He got down and bathed the murti and offered water. Then Yogiji Maharaj started prostrating before the murti asking for forgiveness, "Oh! Maharaj, please forgive me. Today, I have failed to offer you water in time."
On hearing this Nirgundas Swami said, "It wasn't your fault because there was no water on the way."
But Yogiji Maharaj repeated his pleas for forgiveness before the Lord. Words fail to describe the profound devotion of Yogiji Maharaj for Thakorji.
