While the construction of Sanatan’s Ramnathi Ashram was going on, most construction material was lying on the road side and on the ground floor of the Ashram. The construction seva was going on on the 3rd floor. The bricklayers had difficulty working because they had all material (stones, sand, cement, tiles, etc.) on the ground floor. Our goal was to complete the construction at the earliest possible, and everyone ignored the above aspect. Once we decided to perform seva all night and take the material from the ground to the 3rd floor.
Seekers in the construction section started this seva at 7 p.m.
After some time, seekers from other sections also joined the seva. At such times, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale would come and give us something to eat or talk to us. Our enthusiasm grew, and we were inspired to perform seva. In this way, He used to visit us from time to time leaving aside His sleep and enhance our enthusiasm. We stopped this seva the following day at 7 a.m. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale told us to rest. Due to the organised seva, a lot of material was brought to the 3rd floor. We were able to do all this because of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s love.
