The Story of the Uttis Tree


The entry to the ashram in Kainchi is at the boundary of the temple premises and just inside, about twenty-five meters away there is a big stone that Baba would often sit on, surrounded by devotees and other visitors. By the side of the stone, a big Uttis tree stood that had died. It was old and bent, and people feared that it would be uprooted in a storm, possibly injuring someone if it fell.

One day Baba was sitting on a rock with some devotees when someone expressed his fear about the tree and asked Baba if it could be chopped down. Baba simply said, “Pour some Ganga water at its roots. It will become green again.” Sri Ma brought the Ganges water in a can and gave it to Purnanand, who poured it on the roots around the tree. After some time the tree became as green as before. It still stands to tell its wonderful story even after so many years.

    Another wonderful display of his Grace. We know these stories because of the disciples and devotees who were there. We need to remember them as we remember him. In this way we keep the way he taught alive. Jai Gurudev.
