A warkari’s faith



Value- Devotion

Sub value- Faith

One journalist asked a warkari ( devotees who walk long distances from their place of residences to pilgrimage centres; may a times bare foot enduring all hardships on the way) devotee of Vittal who goes to Pandarpur , what’s your age?


Warkari: 80 years

Journalist: Since how long you are visiting this Pandarpur

Warkari: Since 70 years.

Journalist: Have you seen Vithoba once, At least once?.

Warkari: No beta, not yet.

Journalist: Then why do you come every  year, do you believe He is there?

Warkari: Can I ask you a question, from where you have come?

Journalist: From Pune.

Warkari: Do people keep pet dogs in Pune, have you seen any?

Journalist: Yes, each house has a dog

Warkari: In  the village also we keep dogs, that follows us to our farm to protect  us from thieves. At the dead of night,  when one dog sees the thief it starts barking, by hearing this dog another starts barking, likewise all of dogs in the neighbourhood starts barking;  but amongst all the barking dogs 99% have not seen the thief, yet  keeping faith in this 1st dog they start barking.

Likewise Tukaramji, Sant Jnaneshwar, Namdev,they have seen the Vithoba so I have faith in them. One day I may also have darshan of vitthal. If animals can keep their faith in another animal, being a human  being why can’t we have faith in another human  being?

Faith is ultimate! The entire world revolves around Faith! Hold on to the faith. It is said that ‘Faith can move mountains’
