Bhagoji was a helper to Baba, and served him for a long time. He used to get up early in the morning and gently message the body of Saibaba. He used to follow him, whenever baba goes somewhere.
He has suffered from severe leprosy, but even then, he has continuously done his sincere service to baba with utmost faith and dedication on him. He even didn’t ask Baba to cure his leprosy, but instead of that, he asked him, to be with him throughout in his life. He was such a noble and good natured person, which we cannot imagine in this today’s selfish world.
Whenever baba suffers from fire burns, he used to clean the wounds, and apply ointment and put a bandage in the infected portion of the body. He was tirelessly doing his service till the time of Baba’s mahasamadhi in the year 1918. He was a great man, who never thought about himself, but thought only about the wellness of Sai and would remain in the hearts of several millions of Sai devotees forever.
Let us worship the great Sai devotee and be blessed.
