Once Gondavalekar Mahaaraaj was passing through the forest of Aaboo (a place in Gujaraat, India). It was late in the evening and he was traveling alone. Suddenly, He some gangsters surrounded him. Since he was alone at such an odd hour, they thought that he was also a thief like them, so they took him to their place for the night. Gondavlekar went along with them without saying a word. Some of the robbers teased him, beat him and verbally abused him, but he did not react to any of it. One of the older robbers was surprised at Mahaaraaj’s behavior. He told the others, "It seems that this person possesses some supernatural powers (Siddhi), due to which he does not seem to be affected by all the suffering we put him through. Let’s test him further to see if this is true." The others agreed.
