A Painful Miracle

By Acharya Sachidananda on 03-01-2018

Tukaram was a saintly person who lived in India. He was married to a rich lady, who had no consideration for his deep faith in God. One day he was sent to collect sugarcane for his children. That day the children of the lane were overjoyed. From the field till reaching the house, sugarcanes were distributed by him, one
to each child and he arrived home, with just one sugarcane. His children danced in excitement. Hearing this noise, his wife came out and looking at the sugarcane, asked, “Having gone so far to the field, did you bring only one cane?”
“No.
The landlord had given a bundle of sugarcanes. I gave one to each child in the lane. The remaining one cane is here.”
“Nobody has ever given even a single sugarcane to our children. But you have given away everything. You have
no care for the children.” So saying, in a fit of anger, she hit her husband on the back with the sugarcane, he brought.
“Oh! Protector of devotees, Kindness Incarnate! There is no limit to your love for your devotees. Although I brought only one sugar cane to the house, you have converted it into four pieces!” Tukaram said joyfully. He gave a piece each to his two children, put one in is his wife’s hand and holding the remaining one piece in his hand, began to dance clapping his hands.
