Referring to such persons as Freiny, Baba explained:
I have to bear the burden of many cases like hers. But, in dealing with such situations, I have to adopt peculiar methods which people do not understand. On the contrary, such persons as she place obstacles in my ways of working, create more suffering for themselves and add to my suffering. I care for them, save them and redeem them from suffering, by suffering myself!
Freiny has great love for me, but she does not obey me. I keep her at a distance for her own good, but she creates a row, and her row becomes my suffering! She fasted, and I ordered her from Jabalpur to break it, but she disobeyed.
I had to go to Nasik to pacify her [and get her to start eating again]. But all this I bear, and all this infinite suffering is not even a drop in my Ocean [of divinity]!
