The Mysore Maharaja story


Once,  the Maharaja of Mysore visited the Ashram. He asked for a private interview.  Of course Bhagavan never allowed such a thing.

For ten minutes the Maharaja just stood looking and then prostrated before Bhagavan.

For the sin of being born a king, I lost the chance of sitting at your feet and serving in your glorious presence. I do not hope to come again. Only these few minutes are mine. I pray for your grace”.
