(May 1963) One man approached who was meeting Baba for the first time. He was gifted and intelligent, but suffered mentally and was diagnosed as a schizophrenic and forced to give up his medical studies. He had been given treatment with different drugs, as well as electric shock therapy. Baba asked him what trouble his mind suffered. He replied that he had not slept well for the last fourteen years, due to conflicting thoughts and rapid breathing, particularly at night. Baba prescribed some tablets for him for one month. After he came out of the hall, the man told Dr. Bharucha that he had taken the same tablets before, but to no effect. Bharucha explained that it was not of importance what medicine Baba prescribed. What was more important was that Baba – God Himself – was prescribing them. If Baba gave a pinch of dust it might work miracles! So the man obeyed Baba and took the tablets that night. Next morning when he came, he was asked by Baba if he had slept well. He replied, “Baba, in the last fourteen years, this is the first night that I slept soundly.”
