Encouraged by his promise, I went to choose a suitable one. Having done so, there was now the problem of paying. I consulted two banks for a loan, but they needed my husband’s payslip as well as mine and so I was not able to get one. Fortunately the concessionaire had his own bank, so I applied there for a loan. While discussing the terms, I kept on hoping not to be told to bring in my husband’s pay slip along with mine for the loan, but fortunately only mine was asked for. I was offered 10,000€, the sum I needed to buy the car. I was relieved, and felt deep gratitude towards Maharajji for what he had done.
Although I was surprised to get such a big loan with only my salary, this surprise wore off very quickly, for I knew that with Maharajji’s help anything is easy. However, about six months later, I needed a small loan of 2,000€. When I applied to a bank for it, I was told that I would need both my husband’s pay slip and mine. Not being able to give my husband’s, I tried other banks, but was given the same answer, and so I had to give up.
I fully realized then that it was indeed a miracle to have been able to borrow 10,000€ alone since I was systematically refused 2,000€ everywhere with just my salary. Maharajji had been so simple about it, no fuss, no problem. I must say that I had had such deep faith in Maharajji, that I had not doubted his words and everything had seemed so natural. With him, even miracles come so naturally.
