To prepare one for any future stories, unusual tales if you
will, of Baba Sripadji this one event shared with me very
recently by Swami Jnananandaji must be kept in mind.
Swamiji said, ' Once when Sripadji was a very young Sadhu
we were in Banaras sitting with Alice Boner, (Alice Boner,1889-1981,
was a Swiss artist and scholar of Indian art who had made Varanasi her home
from 1936 to 1978.) She asked Sripadji, 'What kind of Sadhu are you?"
He casually pointed down the street and said, "See that dog there
walking with his master, he is a 'regular dog'. Now see that one
over there, the street-dog, moving here and there, wherever and
whenever he likes. He is an irregular dog!
I am an irregular sadhu!!"
And this is what actually made Baba Sripadji so specially
unique, heartfelt, inspiring and intense! No matter which
form of God one adored he could connect with that individual
in a miraculous way touching the Soul!
