One day at Shirdi, Nanasaheb Dengale, a great astrologer , told Bapusaheb Booty, “Today is an inauspicious day for you. There is a danger to your life”. Hearing this bapusaheb Booty was greatly disturbed and become restless.
When both of them came to the Masjid, Baba asked Bapusaheb, “What does this Nana say? He foretells death for you. Well, you need not be afraid. Tell him boldly let us see how death kills when I am here”.
However, in the evening, When Bapusaheb, along with the servant , went out into the fields to ease himself, he saw a snake hear him. Though he was very frightened, he returned calm.
When the servant saw the snake, he immediately picked up a stone to kill it. Bapusaheb advised him to go and get a big stick
Before the servant came with the stick, the snake quickly moved away and disappeared into the field. Bapusaheb remembered, with joy and gratitude, Baba’s words of fearlessness.
Baba’s foresight and protective blessings saved Bapusaheb, averting the danger predicted by the astrologer.
The benevolent Baba thus protects his devotees from harm.
