Sakhubai, an ardent devotee of Lord Panduranga, went to saint Namadeva and submitted, “Master, I make so many cow dung cakes, but people are stealing them. I need to earn a livelihood by selling these, but very little is left for me to sell. What do I do?” Namadeva smilingly asked her, “How do you know that those stolen are your cow dung cakes?” Sakhubai promptly answered, “Master, I make them thinking and reciting Lord Panduranga’s name all the time; my feelings are reflected in them and they give amazing results!” She then asked Namadeva to break and listen to one cake. Everyone around Namadeva were greatly astonished to hear the inanimate cowdung cake reverberating with Panduranga’s name with the correct pitch, tune and rhythm. Mother Sakhubai said, “Not only in these cakes, but if we think of the Lord while performing every action, it will reflect and resound in the work we do!” (My Dear Students, Vol 3, Ch 13, Mar 16, 1998)
