Recipient Worthy of Akshar Gnan
Once, as he was unable to reach Vartal for a festival, Pragji Bhakta came to Sarangpur in search of Gunatitanand Swami. At that time Swami was at the nearby village of Khambhda. With great difficulty Pragji reached Khambhda late at night. Swami was very happy to see Pragji Bhakta, because at that very moment he was thinking of him. Under the pretext that he felt hungry, Swami asked one of his attendants to bring a rotlo. He took a piece and then gave the rest to Pragji Bhakta.
Early next morning, Swami set off for Sarangpur. At Narayankund, on the outskirts of Sarangpur, Swami got down from his cart to answer a call of nature and perform ablutions. Pragji Bhakta was pouring water to help Swami wash his hands when Swami told him his inner thought, “Pragji, I am overflowing with gnan but I have yet to find a worthy person to receive it.”
Seeing the mood and love of Swami, Pragji Bhakta showed his readiness, saying, “Swami, will you give that gnan to me?”
Swami replied with a smile, “It can only be given to a valiant soul who has total control over all his senses and body and is prepared to surrender himself completely to me.”
Pragji Bhakta took Swami's words seriously and resolved to be worthy of the Swami’s blessings. Swami also saw in him a worthy disciple and blessed him.
