Important Extracts from "Tuchi Baap Dhani"
At Tardeo, Mumbai, Shri G. R. Nayak is in possession of the sacred Padukas of Shree
Swami Samath in his house. These Padukas were given to his (Nayak's) grand father by Shree
Swami Samarth himself. Whenever Shree Maharaj used to be in Mumbai, he used to visit the
house of Shri Nayak on thursdays to pay obeisance to the 'Padukas' of Shree Swami Samarth.
On a particualr thursday, when Shree Maharaj visited the house of Shri Nayak, the Arati
(song sung at the time of waving a lamp before a deity) was in progress. Shree
Maharaj entered the house, dancing all the way and when he stood in the room before the
padukas of Shree Swami Samarth the foot prints of Shree Maharaj were automatically got
printed on the floor of the room. Shree Shankar Maharaj also used to visit the
same place to pay obeisance to the 'Padukas' of Shree Swami Samarth. On that particular
occassion, when the foot prints of Shree Maharaj got automatically printed on the floor,
Shree Shankar Maharaj was also present in the room. He saw the foot prints on the floor,
and brought it to the notice of Shri Nayak. Shri Nayak took this incident as a blessing
from Shree Maharaj."
