It was a Sunday and after my usual game of tennis in the morning at Punjabi Bagh Club, I just thought of having ‘Darshan’ of Guruji before heading back home and so, went to Gurgaon. I was fortunate to find Guruji sitting on a charpoy and an old lady before him pleading, “I have come to you with great hope. Some one told me that you could cure me of this terrible pain in my arm, which I have been suffering for the past 6 years. I have been living on medicines all 365 days in a year…but nothing seems to work.”
Meanwhile, I approached Guruji and bowed down to touch his feet. He gave me ‘aashirwad’ and with a divine smile, turned towards that lady and said to her in Punjabi ,
“Leh, ai te mera shishya vee theek kar sakda hai” (even my shishya is capable of removing your pain right now.)
And Guruji commanded me,
“ Rajje, aedi dard theek kar dae”
I was non plussed. Utterly surprised, I looked at Guruji, came close to His ears & asked, ”Guruji, how can I do it ? I don’t know what is to be done.” Guruji whispered in my ear “ Touch her arm with your right hand and drag it down.” Hesitatingly, I touched her arm with my hand and dragged my hand down till her hand. The lady stopped crying rather started smiling.
I found her fumbling for words to express her gratitude. She said Guruji, “First time in six years, I am free of pain & that too, without medicine, Guruji, aap ka bhala ho.”
She further said, “Guruji, I can’t lift my arm, please do that too”. Again Guruji commanded me to lift her hand up. At this, I again turned to His ears and whispered, “Guruji, if I apply force, her shoulder might break because it appears to be frozen and perhaps has been like this for the last 6 years.”
At this, Guruji said in my ear, “Rajje, don’t worry, I have already opened her joint. You simply lift her arm up.” I did as asked, amazingly her arm went right up. She was overwhelmed and happiness showed on her face.
Guruji then said to her, “ maee , rotate your arm right & left, my shishya has removed your beemari (ailment)” she went away saying repeatedly, “Aap ka bhala ho, Guruji”. Though tears were rolling down her cheeks, but these were the tears of happiness & gratitude.
Days, months and years went by, seeing Guruji playing with the laws of nature, humans and even God himself, changed my whole life.
My wife Gulshan and four daughters joined me on this path and so a new phase of our life started sometime in the late seventies. My wife and children loved and adored Guruji much more than me and Guruji loved them too. So much so, that at times due to my harsh attitude, I was threatened by them with a complaint to Him.
What a life ! My family felt so secure that the fear of any kind had ceased to exist. Same was the love and affection from Pujya Mataji whom I called ‘Matarani’ and the children, Renu, Babba, Illa, Neetu & Chutki who also gave us a lot of respect & love . The world seemed entirely different now.
Whatever might be the problem in our lives, “Guruji was the answer” no scare , no fear or distress existed in our lives.
