Baba has said even when He was twenty years old (Physically speaking) that He considers it His task to come to the rescue of His Bhaktas who worship Him (in any form and under any name) with Niyama and Nishtha that is 'living a regulated disciplined life, with systematic Sadhana of Japam and Dhyanam'. He wrote in Telugu 'Neme nishtalthoti, nannu golchuvarini, rakshinchu chundute ghanatha naaku!' So, he is Bhaktha Paraadheena, i.e. bound, to save the devotee. We have to remember that Baba has also said that He is not Bhakthaparaadheena (bound to the devotee) but Bhakthiparaadheena (bound to the 'devotion' in him). So we must foster the spirit of devotion in us and see that it does not waver or wane. That alone can bind Him to us. He has declared that Bhaktha Rakshana is one of the tasks for which He has incarnated in Human form. When the Bhaktha calls out for help, He rushes to save him. He is so affectionately bound to the devotee that He takes upon Himself the illness that the devotee suffers from and saves him, so that he may continue his spiritual pilgrimage.
