It was sometime in the 70’s, when Guruji adopted me as His shishya. Earlier, in a rented house in Shivpuri, the Bada Veervar Seva would usually start at about 7.30-8.00am. R.P.Sharmaji, S.K.Jain Saheb, Suraj Prakash Sharma and a few others would be present to perform Seva. A queue consisting of about 20-30 people, would be there and we used to manage the gradually growing rush of people to move ahead in the queue and get blessings from Guruji and eventually offer ‘Phuliyan’ in the form of ‘Prasad’ at the Sthan.
In those days Guruji would be through (finish Seva) by afternoon and would sit with us, and Mataji would serve us the food. This continued for some time and one day the Landlord complained about the people waiting on the terrace of the house, saying that the weight of the people might result in bringing it down.
On hearing this, Guruji decided to have His own house. Guruji then applied for a piece of land, which He purchased from His savings and built the house at Sector-7, Gurgaon. For this He had withdrawn his provident fund.
The seva continued at the new Sthan in Sector -7 and Tea was served as Prasad to whosoever came to the Sthan.
In my early days at the Sthan, I used to wash the tea cups, left by the people & sweep the verandah, where people used to sit.
The scene in the beginning was that of Guruji blessing people and sending them to R.P. Sharmaji and S.K. Jain Saheb. These two were doing Seva (attending on people’s problems) and not an iota of strain or pressure was ever seen on both of them. The shishyas were so competent and looked confident while curing people’s ailments that it appeared to be a very simple task for them. The results were witnessed by me and others instantly. The immediate relief to the people was so touching at times that it looked as if we were transported to another world.
Guruji blessed every one who came in the queue, enquired their problems and then sent them to His shishyas. Those who repeated their visits, were astonished to find that Guruji knew every little detail regarding their problems. The smile on Guruji’s face was so charming & attractive that none would want to leave. His body language was not at all of an ordinary human being. There seemed something different and a very special aura around Him.
Since the time I was in my teens I had deep love & adulation for Lord Shiva. For the sake of Gyan, I had met a number of saints till I was finally adopted by ‘Guruji’, but no way, none of the saints or Gurus I had previously met, could be compared with Guruji. His personality was different from all angles and was beyond all comparisons. The attraction was such that people got attached to Him and felt a strong bonding with Him -physically , emotionally and spiritually…
After shifting to the new house at Sector -7, we witnessed the rush of people increase day by day. A few hundreds grew to a few thousands and then a time came somewhere in the 80’s that Guruji started blessing people as early as 3.30am in the morning and the Seva would go on till 11.00 – 12.00 P.M in the night.
This went on consistently for some years. Guruji would command us all to go out and look at the people standing in the queue. We would then go out & start walking from the Sthan towards the end of the que. We would keep walking with our eyes on the people standing in the queue as per Guruji’s instructions. Seeing us the crowds would greet us with Pranaams & smiles and we would waive in the air and tell them to patiently wait for Guruji. On reaching the end of the queue, we would find the queue almost touching the end of the road which was more than 2 kms. From Sthan. It was no more surprising..
Looking at the size of crowd growing day by day, Guruji’ started coming out and moving with the people, talking to them, blessing them- one and all. He would put his hand on every head, whether man, woman or an infant and instruct them to offer “Phullian” and to speak out their problems to His shishyas.
People would sit before His shishyas who would then ‘Make’ Jal along with Laung, Elaichi or Kali Mirchi brought by them. ‘Make’ means, (touching the Jal Laung/ Elaichi’s or Kali Mirchi brought by the people on their forehead and transferring or infusing their spiritual powers in them). Specific instruction were given to the people, as to how they were supposed to consume .
Since people started recovering, became hale & hearty after taking Laung, Elaichi & Jal, all I can say is,
“Only faith alone is needed to understand the miracles of the Almighty. Not with the application of brain or intellect. Guruji is complete, and the seeker of knowledge about Guruji carries wisdom of a certain level. Therefore, I suggest, one must watch, wait & think and continue doing so till such time when Guruji blesses the seeker with that level of under standing”
A LADY STANDING IN QUEUE ON BADA VEERVAR WITH A BABY, TELLING GURUJI ABOUT THE BABY’S KIDNEY FAILIURE.
This incident relates to the late 1980’s. A couple with an infant was waiting in queue, when Guruji reached them. The lady held the child in her hands and said, “Guruji , the kidneys of my son are not working”
Guruji held the boy in His hands and said,
“Nahin beta, iski kidney theek hain”
(“no, his kidneys are all right”)
& returned the child to her and moved on further to bless the next one.
Guruji moved very fast in the queue and knew the problems of all whom he blessed. Many times he would ask some, “ab tu theek hai na beta?”
IN 2008 AT PUNJABI BAGH STHAAN
In 2008 a family came at Punjabi Bagh Sthan. The lady referred to some educational problem of her son. I just asked her, whether they had come for the first time. She said, “No Guruji, we are very old disciples and have taken blessings from bade Guruji too, while He was in physical form (Body).”
She further said, “This grown up son was diagnosed with kidney failure by doctors at the time of birth. We were in a mental trauma, when somebody told us to go to Gurgaon and meet Guruji. I went and stood in queue waiting for my turn to have His Darshan. When He put His hand on my head, I said , “Guruji, the kidneys of my newly born son have failed “ Guruji took the child in his hands and all He said was, “no, his kidneys are all right”.
“And this is the same boy !”
