15. Indifferent to Insult and Beating

Yogiji Maharaj suffered insults without retaliating. Once they were staying at the mandir in Keria village. A group of sadhus opposed to Shastriji Maharaj attacked them and broke their waterpots and threw away their jolis. They pushed the young Yogiji Maharaj out of the mandir and taunted him to call Gunatitanand Swami and see if he could help them. The hostile sadhus then crashed the blind Bhagwatswarupdas against the grills, locked up Vignandas and beat the other sadhus.
When the villagers came to know of this they rushed to the mandir with sticks and on scolding the hostile sadhus they stopped their act of violence. Tolerance is a virtue of the holy great.
