It was late evening, when I got a divine and a pleasant shock. Guruji came to Punjabi Bagh. There is no greater pleasure in the universe than to be blessed like this when Guruji Himself chose to give you Darshan at your home and that too, without any intimation. My wife and daughters were all ecstatic, off balanced to see Guruji walk in. They all started shouting and running here & there — Guruji! — Guruji aa Gaye!! And the scene plus the happiness was such that it is impossible for any body to describe it in words or to understand our level of excitement.
“Guruji Ka Aana, Aur Wo Bhi Bina Bataye, —
Bataana Ya Samjha Paana Bahut Mushkil Hai”
Months after months had passed in the wait of Guruji; and today………..!! The wait has become eternal R.P. Sharmaji, F.C. Sharmaji and some more people also came with Him. I and my children ran to fetch chairs for Guruji and others to sit. He stood in the entrance hall where 50-60 people could sit. Guruji sat and we all prostrated to His holy feet.
His face gleamed, a different glow was eminent ………and his divine smile…….
Oh……!! What an evening……!
My house was suddenly brimming with a certain kind of energy… ! I don’t know what to say, to explain those moments is impossible. I felt eternal bliss!! Vidur, a Mahabharat character received Bhagwan Krishna in his house and he served bananas to him. He was so enamored by the lord’s presence that he peeled the bananas, threw away the fruit and served the peels to Bhagwan. He completely lost track of what he was doing. He realized about his act only, when somebody jolted him saying, “Vidurji, what are you doing?” I too experienced a similar over joy where all consciousness is lost. It seemed as if all senses had stopped working.
My brother’s wife, Usha bhabhi’s mother was spiritually inclined and had her own following. Many people visited her house in Bombay and enjoyed her spiritual discourses and Bhajans. She happened to be in Punjabi Bagh visiting her daughter for a few days.
On hearing about Guruji’s arrival she came down to meet Him and sat on a chair next to ‘Him’. She then put a question to Guruji, asking the reason of her daughter’s car accident a couple of months back. It seemed as if she were trying to gauge Guruji.
Guruji looked at her and said, “While Usha was driving along with Rashmi (her niece), she crossed a spot where some spirit was resting. Since Usha was in her periods, the spirit got attracted towards her and entered her body. Usha being un-aware of such spiritual acts, lost control over the driving wheel. The car hit the electricity pole and the accident occurred.”
Guruji further told her, “This was informed to my Shishya Rajje and he rushed at the spot with their driver Bahadur. He then put her & Rashmi in the other car and took them to the hospital” “Had Rajje not reached there in time, she would have died” (It was amazing…!! How Guruji knew every little detail about the incident).
She then started speaking about her spiritual attainments, Guruji touched the centre of his forehead and she went on to explain that she also did ‘Dhyan’ as he was doing. Suddenly, some strange thing happened. She repeated the word “Dhyan” a couple of times, without completing the sentence. Losing track of what she was saying, she then started to sing a Bhajan but forgot the next line. Then she started another Bhajan .. .. Again she forgot the second line. Actually I had never seen her in such a state of forgetful mind, therefore I was astonished. Guruji looked at me and said “Ok, Beta”, I am leaving for Gurgaon now, and he got up and walked out. To my surprise, she also got up and followed Guruji to see Him off to His car. She was a recognized person in her society and hundreds bowed down to her and call her “Maa ji”.
Her getting up so respectfully for Guruji left me astonished. This was some thing new to me as I had never seen her with such sense of humility in the past.
Referring to the accident, I recollect the scene below:
On hearing about the accident, I took the driver and carried both the wounded (in the other car) and headed towards the Hospital. On the way, I noticed that Bhabhi though semi-conscious, held my arm so tight that it wasn’t easy to release myself from her tight grip. I could not understand her act at that time.
When I entered the Emergency ward, a few doctors immediately attended upon the wounded and started with a series of checkups. I overheard a senior doctor saying to another,” she is almost gone; you attend to the other patient.” For a moment I felt scared. Just then I remembered Guruji’s words, He had told me, “At times if you are to save someone’s life, you can shift your own “Kada” in the dying person’s hand.” And I did it immediately. I took a beaker (I needed a tumbler) from some where, filled water, sipped it and poured into her mouth and prayed to Guruji for her life.
ON THE THIRD DAY,
when I visited her in the room, she was narrating her near death experience to others, “I was flying upwards when somebody held me by my feet and pulled me down”. She recovered after a few days.
