Kakasaheb Dixit, a close associate of Shirdi Sai Baba, was sitting in meditation and he saw Vittala in a vision. In the noon, when he went for his dear Baba’s darshan, Sai Baba asked him point blank, “Did Vittal Patil come? Did you see him? He is a very truant fellow. Hold on to him firmly, if you are a little inattentive he will escape.” After this episode, there was another Vittal darshan the same day. A hawker came selling pictures of Vithoba. The picture tallied with the one that appeared in Kakasaheb’s vision. Remembering Baba’s words, Kakasaheb Dixit was much surprised and delighted. He bought a picture of Vithoba and placed it in his shrine for worship.
