I first met Maharajji in Bhowali many years ago. Maharajji frequently visited a certain Ma's home there.
I told her that I had heard about him but had never met him, and I asked her to tell me the next time he came.
After a week or so Maharajji came at night. In the morning a message came for me and I went at once.
I found him lying on a cot. He looked at me, then closed his eyes for a moment. He knew at once who I was, who I had been before, and what I was going to do in this world.
In a few seconds, he said, "I am very pleased to see you," which he repeated many times. Maharajji had walked from Nainital to Bhowali during the night.
