O. P. Ahuja, an officer working in the Income Tax Department came and said, “Guruji, there is an officer called I. D. Sharma, who troubles me a lot. I wish he comes under my control so that the atmosphere in the office becomes sober”.
Guruji said, “You close your eyes and remember his face”. As Ahuja did so, Guruji said, “I have been looking for this person for the last five years, you may bring him here”. Ahuja said that he will never agree to come to you Maharaj. But Guruji said, “He will come” and the time passed.
Once when I. D. Sharma was holding his small son in lap, a good quantity of very hot tea fell on the child and his lower front was badly burnt. The medical aid was rendered immediately but after many days’ treatment, the doctors became hopeless and declared a total damage of his organ.
By chance, a lady, named Saroj Bala, close to the family happened to visit them and suggested for a visit and to pray to her Guruji in Gurgaon. She expressed her confidence as she was a six years old devotee of Guruji and said that Guruji will certainly recover the child. She was sure. But I. D. Sharma refuted the lady and refused to take the child any where since the doctors are supposed to be the authority on diseases and treatments, he asserted.
The lady went away but was not comfortable with the attitude of Sharmaji. She tried once again and insisted to take the innocent child for the sake of his life. Just then I. D. Sharma gave a second thought and agreed to visit Gurgaon and to meet Guruji any way. Just as Sharma ji entered the Sthan, he had an experience which was understandable. He saw ‘OM’ on the front of the gate. This ‘OM’ started rotating circular. He got confused and non plus. Then as he regained his senses, he saw many ‘OM’s’ on all walls and on the ceiling and in many colors. Considering himself in Dilemma, he asked the child whether he too was seeing the ‘OM’. The child confirmed to the Papa and said, “Yes, I am seeing the rotating ‘OM’s’ all around”.
When the child also witnessed the rotating ‘OM’s’. Sharmaji had nothing like a confusion or any doubt on what he was seeing. Now he heard a sound that that Mataji is coming and will give ashirwad to all people at Sthan. Sharmaji and the child stood at Sthan and did what the sound said to. Sharma ji never knew who is Mataji and who is Guruji.
Before meeting Guruji Sharma had never touched feet of any saint or any Guru. He had confined such a respect to his father and his elder brother so far.
Sharmaji took the child to Guruji and the meeting starts —
Guruji said, “Kya baat hai putt?” (What is the problem son ?)
Sharmaji said the whole story and the expected loss of the child’s organ Guruji said, “No ! There is no loss of the organ and the wound shall vanish within 24 hours”.
Sharmaji could not digest this dialogue but could not sleep the whole night in the wait of 4 o’clock of the next day and to see the wounds vanished.
The doctor was called who undressed the bandages and it was a big surprise for all especially the doctor— the wound had dried up. The doctor couldn’t believe his eyes. The yesterday’s wound was not to be seen at all. How did this happen and who is the one who cured it ? No one can imagine the mental condition of Sharmaji who had zero faith in the Lord at one time and now- ??
— now Sharma ji ran to meet Guruji and reached Sthan. But couldn’t meet Guruji.
Ok ! I will come tomorrow, he said to the Sevadaar who said that Guruji was not there.
Tomorrow and then, again tomorrow, but I. D. Sharma couldn’t get the priviledge of having Guruji’s darshan.
More than 5, 6 days passed and, at last, the best happened. He had Guruji’s darshan after all. Guruji said, “Main tera intezar 5 saal se kar raha hoon aur kyon ki tu zidd mein thaa is liye meine hi garam chaaye giraee thi, tujhe bulane ke liye”. (I had been waiting for you for 5, 6 years but you happened to be adamant always. Therefore, it was I who spilt the hot tea on the child. Now that you have come, nothing shall happen to the child and his organ also shall be fit to lead the married life).
I. D. Sharma was bewildered. He asked what is next for him to do ? Guruji said, “Seva karo, yehi tumhari bhakti hai”. (Serve the people, this is your path of sadhana & spiritualism. Rest all I will do).
A few pleasant summers and winters passed. The so called child grew up to become a handsome young man, got educated and then married. He is today, settled in Canada and is living a successful life along with his good wife and two sons.
“Toh ! Yeh hai Guru Dev ki Mahima” .
“Mahima” is a divine word exclusively interpreted for God. I think it befits with Guruji as well.
Aafreen, Hey ! Guru Dev.
Millions prostrations at your holy feet.
