Baba devoted that day, (Feb.24, 1954) from 8:30 to 11:30 A.M., and again from 3:30 to 6 P.M., to house visits. At least sixty homes were visited, as well as a few schools, another Sai Baba temple, the Theosophical High School and various business establishments that were owned or managed by Baba lovers, such as the Venkatarah Printing Press. Baba visited many of the houses without prior notification. The residents were taken by surprise at Baba’s abrupt appearance, and while some ran to fetch a chair for their illustrious guest, others would hurriedly send for flowers and garlands. Baba apparently enjoyed all the commotion and chaos.
Sai Baba of Shirdi is famous throughout all of India. Sai Baba’s photograph was hanging in a room at Mr. K. N. Choudary’s house. Pointing to it, Baba remarked, “His eyes were matchless. No one in the world has such eyes.”
Later at eleven o’clock at the Sai Baba temple, Baba pointed to Sai Baba’s portrait and stated, “In a way, the five Perfect Masters made me what I am, the Ancient One. He is my Grandfather.”
Baba entered another Sai Baba temple twenty minutes later, folded his hands to Sai Baba’s picture and stated, “If there is real love, it is here. He is everywhere, and I am everywhere.”
Baba then went and visited different families’ homes. After giving prasad to Venkata Rao and his family, Baba remarked, “When I give anything unasked, it is really given.”
