Sunder Nagar, a hill station in Himachal Pradesh, where Guruji had gone on an official tour for soil survey. I asked my wife to get prepared for a short trip to Sunder Nagar to be with Guruji since there won’t be too many people urrounding him as in Gurgaon. So, I drove to Sunder Nagar along with my family.
On reaching Guruji’s camp, Guruji got very happy to see us all there. He gave us tea as his ‘Prasad’ and sent someone with us to put us up in a Govt. Rest house for a comfortable stay.
He said, beta, “You may go there & relax today and come to me tomorrow at 8.00 am here at the camp, leaving Gulshan & children behind to enjoy themselves”. He further said,”Beta, I have to go to the fields for survey and meanwhile you can attend the people in my absence and do Seva till I return from my duty in the evening.”
Next morning, I reached the camp and on finding Guruji there, I asked, “Guruji, you were to go to the fields?” He said, ”Beta, it has been raining since morning and the rains in the hills make our job a little difficult, so I shall go tomorrow.”
The next morning, I reached the camp and was surprised to again find Guruji there. He said,” Beta, today also there was rain and so, I will be going tomorrow.”
The third day when I reached Guruji, he was again sitting there and the moment I happened to inquire, he loudly exclaimed as if accusing “ Indra Dev” (the God of Rain) and said, “ I shall see him now.”, And challengingly said “he is deliberately obstructing my programme, and now I will see tomorrow how he makes it rain again”
I was astonished to hear this and thought that Guruji was talking as if Indra Dev were a human being and was listening to him.
The following day, I came to the camp and found that Guruji had left for the fields and there was no rain for next 6-7 days that I stayed in Sunder Nagar.
People continued to visit him with various problems,Pains or ailments and Guruji would give them Jal, Laung, Elaichi etc And as I knew, they would become all right.I was instructed to sit in a room on a lower part of the house to perform Seva. Guruji would send the people to me and I would do the Seva as per his command
Once, a retired army man came to me and said, “Guruji has sent me to you. I am suffering from a wound in my leg for the last 8 to 9 years.” He said, “I had a bullet shot in my leg for which I under went treatment at the Military Hospital. The wound hasn’t healed until now and a liquid continues to ooze out from it. No medication has been of any use so far. I have to keep it bandaged all the time and have to change it a couple of times everyday. He further said, “Somebody guided me saying that some Guruji from Gurgaon has come to Sunder Nagar, and he can cure it, and also said to have faith, so I have come. And Guruji sitting in the upper level room placed his hand on my head and instructed me to come to you.”
After listening to him, I went to Guruji and asked,” Guruji, what should I do.” Guruji said to me, “unwrap the bandage, look at the wound and place your hand on it. “Guruji further commanded me to be careful and not be disturbed and carried away at the sight and ugliness of the wound. When I unwrapped the bandage, it was really difficult for me to keep looking at it. The wound was about 3 to 4 sq. inches and had a hole of about 3 mm from which the fluid was oozing out. The skin around had decayed and had turned white. As per Guruji’s command, I placed my hand on the wound.
The next day when the man visited again, the fluid had stopped coming out and the color of the wound had changed to brown, showing signs of healing. “Aha! Guruji, how had this happened? How did you do this Guruji?” Guruji smiled to my astonishment and said , “MAZA AAYA?” And then Guruji said,
“Rajje, this is the real worship of GOD.
“He said,“Beta you have pleased the ‘GOD’ in him”. The pain is felt by the soul, living inside the body.
The body without the soul does not have any feeling (since it is only a lifeless body) so the pain is felt by the soul and soul is part of the super soul ‘The Paramaatma’.
By serving that man, you have served ‘Parmatma’ through a part of him (stationed in him).”
Guruji made such a complex issue sound so simple and understandable to a man like me who is not learned.
