[stextbox id=”info” image=”null”]The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.[/stextbox]
My firm belief is that the Siddhas protect the world, if we see some of the incidents. As though the God Almighty has given the power of attorney to the Siddhas and has gone for vacation. Though we pray to God, many a times, He shows us the way through the Siddhas only.
I was reading the Nadi of Bhoga Siddha that day when a couple came and saluted. They appeared poor. I asked them about the reason for their visit. They said:
“O Sire, we have a 12 year old daughter. From birth, she is deaf and dumb and mentally unstable. We are a very poor family and we have nobody to help us. We tried all treatments that we could afford but of no use. The only thing resulted was the spending of money and we becoming indebted. We heard that you read the Nadi and suggest medicines and the grace of Siddhas. Can you please get a medicine from the Siddhas?” – they were in tears.
I was astonished to see the way they asked. When asking for help from someone, one has to know how to ask for help in the correct manner. Though appeared illeterate, I was inspired by the way they asked for help correctly. I felt that there will be an apt reply from the Siddha and I opened Bhoga’s Nadi after praying the way it is to be done.
The message that appeared was very fast and so was the way it ended. Yes, Bhoga Siddha is well versed in conveying any big thing in a short and sweet manner. This time too He said, “Take your daughter to Kolli Hills within three days. There she will get a new life.”
I asked them to carry out this task at once but began to think myself.
“They appear to be very poor. Where will they stay in Kolli Hills? Who will identify them and provide them medicine? Instead of making them roam around like this, it would have been great if Bhoga Siddha had mentioned them the name of the medicine.”
However, what miracle is the Siddha going to make? Who knows? One thing is for sure. It is a good omen that He Himself asked them to go to Kolli Hills and that they will be guided properly, I felt. Three months passed by and I did not hear anything from them. I got busy reading Nadi for others. On a day, I suddenly thought about them and wanted to ask Bhoga Siddha Himself. I opened the Nadi.
“As per Bhoga’s orders, the parents and daughter climbed the mountain. The treatment is in progress. They will return once it is complete. Have patience till then.” – I gave a sigh of relief.
Six months passed by.
The parents came with their daughter, all appeared happy. The male narrated:
“As per the Bhoga Siddha, we reached the basement of Kolli Hills and were thinking whom to ask what. Then there came a person who appeared like a beggar: “There is a pooja going on in Shiva temple. There is a Siddha. If He wishes, your problem will be cured. When He comes closer, ask your daughter to fall at His feet. There will be a cure to your daughter’s problem.”
We went to the temple he mentioned. Inside that temple, there were many of them who appeared like Siddhas. We did not know who ‘that’ Siddha was and were motionless. It was a full-moon day and so the pooja was very elaborate. We waited patiently till the pooja was over. When it got over, a person who appeared very tall came out of the crowd. He had such a light in his eyes! The moment we saw him, our daughter fell at his feet all by herself. We were surprised. A girl who cannot understand anything at all,
how did she do this? We fell at His feet too. We having said nothing, He said, “I shall give the medicine once the pooja is over.” We said, “Very well Swami. We shall wait.”
We were surprised, got goose pimps all over our body thinking that our daughter indeed will see the light, we thanked the Lord and that Swami and were watching the pooja they were doing, standing in a corner. Till the end, the way the pooja was done made us feel goose pimps all over. It was as if the Lord Almighty was present Himself, accepting the offering they were doing, we felt. We have visited many a temples, but never have we seen such a pooja.
Once it got over, He came with a herbal tonic and asked my daughter to drink. Then He said, “Come after fourty days. Till then, follow some regulations strictly and explained them in detail. We bid farewell with tears in our eyes and returned after fourty days. He was there, gave another tonic to our daughter to drink. Again fourty days of regulations, a revisit. This continued for about six months and once six months pass by, He said, “The medicine in-take is sufficient. Your daughter will become alright within one Mandala (48 days). Observe the regulations. No need to come here. To the ‘Vaidhyanatha Swamy’ (Lord Shiva) in your town,
arrange for an Abhisheka. That will be the respect you will show to the Lord. We do not want anything”. He said these and as we were looking at him awe-struck, he walked inside the sanctum sanctorum and disappeared!!!”
“Talk to my daughter yourself. She has become perfectly alright.” he said. I could not believe what has happened. That girl folded her hands paying Namaskar and prostrated before me. I got tears in my eyes. I lifted her off saying, “Amma, You are blessed by the Siddha. You should not prostrated before me.” – I lifted both my hands and blessed her.
Then I asked him, “Ok, whom do you think who had come there?”
“The one who installed the Nava Bhashana Muruga idol in Pazhani, The Bhoga Siddha, who else can that be?” – said that poor, illeterate person with so much of clarity. I met a person who is called illeterate but with that clarity for the first time in my life. I was immensely happy that I shook both his hands with both of mine.
The moral of this incident is: Even if a problem comes that seems like the very livelihood will disappear, if one remains absolutely clear and with steadfast faith….he or she will get the darshan of Siddha such as this person. They will get the blessing of such a pooja being conducted, to remain right there and witness it. Above all, a permanent solution to the problem will appear.
If we have got the Grace of Siddha, there won’t be anything for us that is not achievable.
