The man with a saintly appearance was having a rotti and a little ghee for his lunch.A dog came by, snatched the rotti from his hand and ran away. he at once jumped at his feet,and taking the bowl of ghee in his hand, he ran behind the dog."oh, my friend, why do you eat that dry rotti? have some ghee also" - shouting like this, he persued the dog. at longlast he was able to catch it.he smeared the rotti with ghee and fed the dog.many were marvelled at this sight. some called him mad, some laughed at him, some praised his goodness. neither their derisive laughter nor their praise caught his attention. all that he was interested in was feeding the dog.This compassionate man was Namadeva, one of the greatest devotee of pandharinath.What he saw even in a dog was the element of divinity in every living being.This is the greatness of the Lord Pandharinath's devotees.jay jay vittala!jaya hari vittala!
