Once, when Sai Maharaj was having His food, a dog put his mouth in a mug of buttermilk. Fakir Baba, who happened to be nearby noticed this and asked a boy to throw the buttermilk away. As he was about to do so, Sai asked, “What is it?” When Fakir Baba narrated, what had happened, Sai said, “Bapu, the buttermilk is good. Take it home and make ‘Kadhi’. We shall eat it.” Of course, Fakir Baba followed His instructions and later Sai ate the Kadhi.
