Blessed indeed are we who have been favoured with the vision of the Glory of God in this holy infant. Blessed are the parents who have given birth to this holy child, blessed is the village, the town, the city nay the whole world where this Glory of God will physically stay and stride upon.

F
rom his very birth, this holy child was never seen weeping or laughing. He had never cried for milk, had never demanded or asked for anything to eat because he was far above the human instinct of hunger and thirst. He was completely indifferent to heat and cold. He was totally free from delight and anger. He had no desire and was totally free from all worldly attachments. He was always established in some deep meditation and his face glowed like a sun. He was always in the highest state of bliss. His holy face radiated with a unique flood of light. Once a dark room was aglow with that dazzling light (parkash) of his divine face, where he was sitting in meditation for a few days in his youth.

Unaffected by hunger or thirst, pain or pleasure, heat or cold, he was totally free of any want or desire even as a child. He never felt agitated and remained totally unruffled under all conditions. His glowing face emitted the light and fragrance of Bliss-Eternal in which he himself was permanently established.

Two incidents deserve special mention which depict the majestic glory of God in the Divine infant. A sage, who noticed the infant sitting on a cot from the door of the house was wonderstruck by the majestic glory of God on Babaji's face and he came in and sat on the floor towards the holy feet of the infant divinity.

A second saint, who was of the udasi cult, and had set up a camp on the outskirts of the village with a large number of his followers. The whole village used to attend the congregation in the evening and used to benefit from the Mahatma's holy discourses. Once the lucky father of the holy infant carried the child in his lap to attend the Satsang of the holy sage and was sitting quite near him. As soon as the Mahatma set eyes on the child, he was bewildered and wonderstruck, and could not take his eyes off him. Both the holy men, in these two incidents had their eyes riveted at the radiant face of the holy child and with awe and veneration thus spoke of the rare divine glow which they had seen first time in their long lives.

"Blessed indeed are we who have been favoured with the vision of the Glory of God in this holy infant. Blessed are the parents who have given birth to this holy child, blessed is the village, the town, the city nay the whole world where this Glory of God will physically stay and stride upon".

Both the saints had seen the grandeur and glory of God on the child's face. Having beheld it and having perceived radiance and the power and glory of God, they both offered their homage to the eternal glory, shining like a rising sun on the face and congratulated the parents from the depth of their hearts.
