AUGUST 10, 1946 – BABA’S CONTACT WITH KRISHNA MAST.
The other remarkable contact made in Sadhaura was a mental conscious adept called Krishna. The man had worked as a guard at the railway station but was so absorbed in Lord Krishna, he would write “Radha Krishna” on walls wherever he went and constantly uttered these two names aloud. Once, Krishna was so engrossed and enraptured in offering devotional bhajans, he failed to show up for work on time, and the train left without him. However, some people actually saw him on the train, while others claimed he had been singing bhajans the whole day. To corroborate the facts, they went to his supervisor, who brought out the duty book and found that the guard’s signature had been signed at every station. When asked about this strange occurrence, the guard offered this explanation: “Lord Krishna looked after my worldly duties while I was busy praying to Him.” Thus the guard was called “Krishna,” and he subsequently retired and spent his whole time contemplating his beloved Lord Krishna.
Baba had been hunting Krishna for two days. Early in the morning of August 10th, (1946) Baba heard the mast chanting “Krishna, Krishna,” and hurried out into the road. When Krishna saw Baba hurrying toward him, instantly he began running toward Baba. When they met, they embraced with such intensity that they fell down and rolled together on the road, locked in a tight embrace. Krishna wept when he held Baba, and Baba appeared very happy to have contacted him.
