Now Jinabhai passed his days and nights in the mandir. He worshipped Maharaj with single-minded devotion. Jina would also serve visiting sadhus during their short stays in Dhari. All of them were pleased with his service and would bless him. At school, Jinabhai passed the Standard VII exams. At that time, Krishnacharandas Swami, along with his group of sadhus visited Dhari from Junagadh. On seeing the sadhus, Jinabhai was extremely pleased. He was in their service from early morning till late night. He would get up early in the morning and have his bath. After completing his morning prayers he would attend to the needs of the sadhus. He helped them by drawing water from the well for their bath. He would sweep the mandir floor, and neatly arrange the mats for the sadhus to sit and meditate upon. He lovingly served them all throughout the day.
Sadguru Krishnacharandas Swami was a blessed disciple of Gunatitanand Swami, the incarnation of Aksharbrahma. He saw that Jinabhai, though often very tired, still completed his daily duties and services at the mandir. He was pleased to see the devotion of Jinabhai, and appreciated the zeal with which he served.
One morning, while giving prasad to Jinabhai Swami asked, “Jina, would you like to become a sadhu?” Jinabhai was filled with joy at Swami’s question. He replied eagerly, “Yes Swamiji, I would be happy if you would make me a sadhu. It is my only wish. For many days I have been hoping to talk to you about it. But today, you yourself have read my mind. Swamiji, please initiate me as a sadhu. I want to become a sadhu and serve you and Maharaj.”
Swami Krishnacharandasji blessed him and said, “Your wish will be fulfilled.”
