The staunch faith that Maharaj has in Sri Guru is to such a degree that is rarely seen. How one should follow the instruction of one's Gurudev is seen fully in Tirtha Maharaj.
Prabhuji told him that the prasad is over and he can come either in the night or the next day. But he demanded that he has to be served prasad right then and started abusing. Bhandari prabhu tried to make him understand, but he started debating.
Tirtha Maharaj, who was secretary of our math at that time, heard the loud shouts, came out of his room and asked the matter, and the man continued shouting and complaining.
“You come to our house for donation, now we have come and you are refusing to give prasad,” he demanded.
Maharajji also tried to make him understand, but the man said, “If you come to our house for donation, we shall not give from now on. I will see how you will take care of the math without donations.”
That time Maharaj exhibited his anger and said, “We have not come to math thinking that you will take care of us and our needs. You may stop giving the donations. We have come to math after seeing our Guruji. Krishna is our protector. We have come to the math to do Hari-bhajan. Bhagwan is the protector, He is the maintainer. If He protects us, we will be protected, and if He wants to finish us, we will be finished. Stop giving us donation and go away from here.”
He was very strong on them.That time our Gurudev (Sri Srimad Bhakti Dayita Madhav Goswami) came out of his bhajan kutir. He heard the entire conversation.
He said, "Whatever Maharaj has said is right. He gave an appropriate reply. We should have faith in Krishna. Our faith should not be on worldly persons. That is not the reason for our renouncing the material life. We have come to the math to do Krishna bhajan. Krishna is our protector and maintainer. He is the master of the universe. He is maintaining everyone, so will He not maintain us too? Definitely He will take care of us."
Guruji praised Tirtha Maharaj a lot. I saw that he is very much devoted to Supreme Lord Krishna and Gurudev.
