Posted on: 05 Oct 2016
O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

11)  Curing Sitamma from long time headache: Sitamma visited the house of C B K Murthy to see Swami for the first time. She saw several bright rings of gold coloured light entering the head of Swami. She was suffering from severe headache from a very long time. Swami looked at her and smiled. The headache disappeared forever, but, Swami suffered with severe headache for 3 days.

Swami’s comment: She was a lady devoted to Mahalakshmi in the past birth. This punishment in this birth is the result of her hit on the head of a cow that came to her house and disturbed her prayer by crying.

12)  Curing my mother from the pains of surgery: My mother underwent surgery in hospital and was suffering with severe pains. My father returned home and bowed to Swami thinking about the extreme pains of my mother. Swami smiled and gave a sweet to my father to be given to my mother as offering of God. Then, the time was exactly 9 pm. At the same time, my mother experienced a severe shock of electricity and her pains disappeared from that moment.

Swami’s comment: This soul sold her old cow to a butcher in the past birth and this is the result of that sin.

13)  Curing a cobbler from burnings: One day, large burns appeared on the body of Swami suddenly and all the devotees were shocked. Swami told that He has taken the burns of a cobbler (Ramaswamy) living in His native village, who loved Swami very much from childhood. Swami suffered a lot for three days and refused to take any medical treatment. On the fourth day, the burns disappeared by themselves.

Swami’s comment: This cobbler was a Brahmin lady in the past birth, who tortured her daughter-in-law by pouring hot oil on her and its result is this.

14)  Curing B.P. of a good devotee: Shri Satyanarayana was a good devotee of God always following the path of justice. He was not the devotee of Swami, but, very much respects Swami. He was suffering with high B.P. when Swami went to his house and sat by his side asking him to test his B.P. with the instrument present with him. The B.P. was normal. Swami returned to our house and suffered with high B.P. throughout the night, which was indicated by the instrument.

Swami’s comment: This soul was a Brahmin lady, who was torturing her husband through harsh words raising his B.P. often and this is result of that. He may not be My devotee, which means not the devotee of this dress (human form) but he is My devotee.

15)  Curing undetectable disease: Ramaa is the second daughter of CBK Murthy suffering with an undetectable disease for doctors, who examined and tell that she has no disease! The suffering of disease is that every day by 3 pm, she gets severe depression and shakes with severe pain as if she is in the last minutes of life! C B K Murthy and his wife were in Hyderabad with her since the seriousness of illness was in climax. They phoned to their eldest son in office to find out Swami and inform this to Him. They were surprised to hear from their daughter-in-law that Swami arrived already to their house by 1 pm itself on that day, saying that one of their family members is to expire. Swami started singing songs on Lord Shiva to stop the death. Bhaskar, the eldest son of C B K Murthy informed Swami that his father wants to talk with Swami on phone. Swami replied “no need. Tell your father that I am on the same work”. Ramaa was saved from the danger. Next day, Swami came to her house at Hyderabad. The disease appeared again at 3 pm. Swami was taking rest lying on the cot. Ramaa went and caught the feet of Swami shedding tears continuously while suffering with that severe illness. C B K Murthy told “Swami! Either save her or kill her”. Swami told “Are you also talking like this being My real devotee?” Swami stood and placed His hand on her head singing song on Lord Shiva. She was relieved from that illness from that moment onwards forever in her life.

Swami’s comment: This soul was a Govt. doctor in the past birth taking lot of bribe from patients, who were depressed by that and this is the result of that past sin.

16)  Curing diarrhea and severe throbbing abdominal pain:

a) Shri CBK Murthy suffered with severe diarrhea and was admitted in the hospital on saline treatment. Swami was in the house of Ajay when the news came. Swami told “CBK Murthy is my fundamental pillar of this spiritual programme. How can I let him suffer like this?” Immediately CBK Murthy recovered in the hospital and the same diarrhea attacked Swami at once. Ajay was pained very much seeing the tedious suffering of Swami and told “I read in the books of incarnations of Datta that Datta transfers the disease of devotees to His body and suffers. But, I am seeing this for the first time with my eyes!”

b) Once, CBK Murthy developed serious abdominal pain, which attacks him even if a grain of food is taken. He became very weak within few days. One day Swami came to his house and was taking meals served by Smt. Bhavani (wife of CBK Murthy). CBK Murthy sat near Swami praying Him while shedding tears “Swami! You cured this same disease of a devotee while you were Shri Narasimha Saraswati. Please cure me now also from the same illness”. The items served to Swami in food were very hard like curry of potatoes, daal of mango etc., Swami told “If you have such real faith in Me, come on, eat this food”. Swami gave the food to him also while eating. Smt. Bhavani warned her husband not to eat any such harsh food since even very soft food is not digested by him. CBK Murthy neglected her words and started eating the hard food with high tamarind and chillies given by Swami. CBK Murthy ate lot of food given by Swami. He did not get the pain, which disappeared forever from that time onwards and CBK Murthy used to take normal food every day.

c) One day, while taking bath, CBK Murthy suffered with terrible waist pain. Swami came at 3 pm and asked him “shall I take your pain?” By that day, CBK Murthy digested the philosophy of Swami, which is: “a real devotee should suffer the fruits of his own sins and should not ask favour from Swami. If Swami cancels the fruits of sins, Swami becomes the breaker of His own law. Hence, Swami suffers for the sake of devotee to satisfy the deity of justice. Is this real love of devotee to Swami?” CBK Murthy replied “let me enjoy my own sins. Swami should not suffer for my sake”. Swami was pleased and sang devotional songs for three hours. Swami said “On your behalf, I prayed God. You will suffer with this pain for some more time in mild quantities. I have increased the span of time of suffering and decreased the size of each quantum of pain”. CBK Murthy suffered with mild pain for some more days.

 Swami’s comment: This soul is a great devotee and priest in the temple of Lord Shiva in the past birth. His old teacher visited his home twice. First time, this soul gave spoiled food and second time refused to give any food. This is the result of those two sins in the form of diarrhea and severe abdominal pain respectively. The waist pain was due to beating the waist of a dog by the same priest.

17)  Curing the baby from serious illness: Shri Ramnath was a very great devotee of Shri Akkalkot Maharaj, incarnation of Datta. Hence, Swami treats him as His very dear devotee since Swami is also the incarnation of same Lord Datta. By the grace of Datta expressed through Swami, Shri Ramnath flourished very much in the materialistic line also. Whenever Swami goes to Mumbai, it is a rule that Swami stays in their house for 2 to 3 days before departure. The devoted couple serves Swami with full affection. Once, the baby of this couple was hospitalised with serious illness. Swami in Vijayawada sang a song from a long Sanskrit-song- prayer on God Brahma (present in Bhakti Ganga) for the recovery of that baby and the baby recovered. That song means “I pray God Brahma Datta, who alone can modify the old judgement written by Him on the forehead (Lalaata rekhaam karmabaddhaam, parimaarshtum yah kevalohi, sarvasamartho lekhakoyam, Dhaataaram tam mulamulam). On another occasion a close relative of Shri Ramanath fell ill seriously and he phoned to Swami about that. Swami told him “tell the name of Rama in her ear”. Next day she expired.

 Swami’s comment: This baby was a merchant in the past birth and now punished through this illness for taking more profits in the past birth. The second case doesn’t deserve extension of life and hence Swami didn’t interfere.

18)  Curing the illness through knowledge: A scholar was preaching Ashtaavakra Samhitaa in a temple. It is a book of spiritual knowledge which was preached to king Janaka by sage Ashtaavakra. The scholar stopped his preaching since he was stuck at a verse, the translated meaning of which was horrible. The scholar himself was unable to understand its sense since its meaning created almost very strong heart attack. The meaning of that verse is that the mother in this birth, who grew her son is born as the wife of her son in the next birth. The scholar thought that if he preaches this verse, the public will throw their chappels on him! The scholar consulted several other great scholars also for the interpretation of this verse. Some were also shocked and some suggested the scholar to skip off that verse and proceed further in that book. The scholar was not convinced, fell ill due to mental tension and anxiety for the correct meaning, unable to take food properly and was stuck to the cot like a skeleton for about six months. Some devotees took Swami to the residence of the scholar. The scholar told Swami “people are telling that you are the incarnation of Dattatreya. If so, you can certainly reveal the correct meaning of this verse. Then only, I will permanently recover from my illness. Even if you cure my illness by using your miraculous power, I will shortly fall ill again due to my tension about the verse”. Meanwhile, his family members brought plates of tiffin and coffee for Swami, devotees and for the scholar, who refused to take both. Swami told “please take the tiffin and coffee along with us and I am sure that Shri Dattatreya will reveal the correct meaning to you since you have given so much value for the knowledge! If you have faith in Me, first you take these both”. The scholar accepted and took both along with Swami. Then, Swami started giving the interpretation of that verse like this: “there is a cinema theatre and one new picture was shown recently after which an old picture was also shown now. In the first new picture, the hero acted as son and a old heroine acted as his mother. In the second old picture the same hero acted as husband and the same heroine acted as wife. This is because the hero-actor acts as hero for a long time whereas the heroine-actress becomes old shortly and acts in elder roles. If you see both these from the point of actor and actress only, neither both are husband and wife nor are both mother and son. The actor and actress are real and always remain as colleagues only in reality. The roles in cinemas were totally unreal and hence both these role-relationships are unreal only. Similarly, these worldly bonds are only unreal cinema-role bonds. In reality, any two actors (souls) are only colleagues in the profession. These unreal worldly relationships change from one birth (cinema) to other. In anyway, it is doesn’t matter since these role relationships (worldly bonds) are totally unreal. One should not say that the relationship between roles is real at least in the time of present shooting even though both actors were not having and will not have this role-relationship in past and future respectively. Such temporary relationship is unreal in all the three times as said by Shankara that whatever is temporary must be unreal in all the times (yadanityam tat krutakam hi loke). This is correct because even during the shooting time both were neither husband and wife nor mother and son in reality. Hence, whatever is temporary must be always unreal only. Ashtaavakraa is advising king Janaka not to fall in the clutch of such totally unreal worldly bonds, which are just role-relationships of cinemas. The Veda also says that even the love shown by such unreal worldly bonds is also unreal because these worldly bonds love you only for their happiness and not for your happiness since you are giving them happiness (Aatmanah...)! The only real bond for both the acting colleagues is the bond with producer of cinemas, who patronises them and that employer-employee bond alone is real and unchanged even if the cinemas change changing their roles. Similarly, the bond between God (producer of world) and acting soul (which is master-servant) is always permanent and real even though lives change changing the role like worldly relationships. The sage is finally concluding to warn the king to take care of the real and permanent bond with God to keep it above the unreal and temporary worldly bonds”. The scholar was almost shocked and got astonished to hear such excellent meaning of the verse, which was thought as worst by him! He touched the feet of Swami and embraced Swami shedding tears saying “You are really really really Datta” and from that time onwards got fully recovered. Swami told the devotees “Knowledge or Goddess Saraswati is also a miraculous power. Hence, this should be also considered as a miracle only like other miracles performed by Datta”. (Swami asked us to keep the name of that old scholar confidential since the scholar is very famous preacher of scriptures and this may distort his fame in the society. Swami told finally “all of you know that I don’t want any fame since this revelation of the meaning of this verse is done by Lord Dattatreya only through My voice”).

Swami’s comment: This soul was a great scholar with ego mocking at every scholar in the past birth and the present sickness was due to that past sin.

19)  Giving voice to devotee, who became dumb: Shri Anjaneya Sharma ji and his wife Smt. Kameswaramma visited Swami. Shri Sharma ji was a famous singer. He was attacked by paralysis and lost voice. Both fell on the feet of Swami. Swami told “I am giving you voice now to sing some devotional songs in my presence”. Sharma ji started singing songs of Tyagaraaja in wonderful tone and Swami also sang the same along with Sharma ji. Sharma ji told that he got a divine experience of sage Naarada singing along with Tyagaraaja while sage Naarada presented ‘svaraanava’ to him. Swami told “the loss of your voice is due to wounding the throat of pigeon residing in the temple of Krishna. You have already crossed 60 years age. Now voice is not very much essential for you. If you insist I shall certainly grant the voice, but, you have to become dumb throughout your next life since the interest is added to the punishment for delaying it”. Sharma ji thought a while and agreed to lose the voice in this remaining short period of life. It happened so as per the agreement.

Swami’s comment: The punishment of the sin is inevitable unless the soul is totally transformed. God has the power to postpone the punishment to the next birth and addition of interest is also inevitable. God will never hurt the deity of justice in her administration. Some adjustments may be done by God in view of the possibility of spiritual reformation in a soul, but, account is always maintained. Postponement is not cancellation of punishment of sin. People mistake God thinking that God cancelled their sins caught by their clutch of theoretical devotion of prayers and shedding crocodile tears! God is omniscient and can never be fooled by any soul. Cancelation of a particular sin can take place provided God is prepared to suffer it based on the deservingness of devotee. The cancelation all the sins can be only accomplished when the soul is totally transformed by knowledge, theoretical devotion and practical sacrifice.
