Humorous Maharaj


Humorous Maharaj


Among the many great qualities of Maharaj, his divine humour was one of the characteristics that all the devotees and paramhansas enjoyed. Many devotees imagined Maharaj to be serious but often He would play pranks on them. At times, He would reveal a message or His divinity through games and jokes.

Once, Maharaj, along with Naja Jogiya, was staying at the house of Alaiya Khachar. He called Naja Jogiya into the room and invited him to wrestle. Maharaj and Naja Jogiya began circling each other. As Naja Jogiya pounced for the first strike, Maharaj raised him up to the ceiling. After a pause, He released Naja who came crashing to the ground. Naja quickly got up and charged towards Maharaj a second time. Again Maharaj picked him up and dropped him to
the ground. This sequence continued for another two rounds but Naja was not hurt at all. Naja Jogiya asked, "Even though you lifted me to the ceiling and dropped me hard on the ground four times, how is it that I am not hurt?"

Maharaj replied, "If you had been hurt, then who would wrestle with me next time? I protected you and made sure that you did not get hurt." In this way Maharaj revealed His divinity while having some fun.

Similarly, there are other occasions of Maharaj's wit. Once, during the Holi festival in Gadhada, as everyone was getting ready to throw colour on each other, Raghuvirji Maharaj decided to play a trick on Maharaj. He quietly crept up with a pot full of colour and approached Maharaj, ready to pour it on top of Him. Maharaj tried to resist by holding his hand, but Raghuvirji Maharaj overcame the resistance and poured it all over Maharaj. Maharaj smiled and said, "After all you are Hindustani and there is a tradition to play with colours."

Through the human quality of laughter, the divinity of Shriji Maharaj was revealed. Even though these incidents may seem simple, Shriji Maharaj used humour to leave lasting memories in the hearts of His devotees.
