A DISCIPLE: [to one of his mates] Do you see his luck?
ANOTHER DISCIPLE: If this sort of thing continues, we all have to quit and retire to the forest!
Inside the hut, the conversation between the Guru and his favourite disciple continues.
GURU: Baba, you are talking of service. Is there any reason for doing service?
SAI: The tree gives us wood, the lake gives us water, the flower gives us fragrance, and fruit offers itself as food; in so giving, none of these entities have any expectations whatsoever. Similarly, service does not require a reason. Service rendered without a reason need not be called service. One derives an inexplicable joy from such work, and also deep satisfaction. Master, are you not my mother, father, and God, all rolled into one?
