Kumar had brought the colt, Sheba, to Baba, and on June 27th, (1953) Baba told him to bring a deer. The deer was also kept as a pet for a while. At one point, Baba explained to Kumar:
You should know that lately I feel much disgust. It will go on increasing. I do all this for a purpose. But there is one thing: I feel that July will prove most critical, crucial, for me. Everything else is a play. Gird your loins, and be fully prepared by the 10th of July. You have carried out one hundred percent the work of buying Sheba. It does not matter to me now whether the horse lives or dies. I am happy you fulfilled my wish as instructed.
My method is to create and to abolish. If I tell you tomorrow to sell the horse, you should do it willingly. If I tell you to give it away to someone, that too you should carry out joyfully. You should never have a thought that all your labors spent on buying it were in vain. Had you not bought it, I would have been thinking about it all the time.
My methods and ways are unique. Once a thing is done, I never care what happens thereafter. And so, if you want to please me, then do as I say. You should not think why Baba does this and why he wishes so. If ever the thought of why creeps into your mind, the whole thing is spoiled.
