The old lady in a wheel chair
Let me write down a miracle which
has happened in front of us at Puttaparthi when we were studying there.
One day Swami came out to give His Darshan (His Appearance). We were
observing an old lady who was a foriegner, unable to stand or sit on
her egs, since many days.She was brought for darshan daily in a wheel
chair and was placed behind the devotees.On that particular day, Swami
pointed out at her and called her,during darshan.She was brought in
the same wheel chair nearer to Swami. Swami bent a bit forward towards
her and patted on her knees and said, today is the last day to bear
the fruits of your past deeds.You have been suffering for all these
days as a result of your karma(deeds).Now I am relieving you of all
that.While saying so, He lifted her hands up and helped her to stand
up. She was thrilled at that gesture. Slowly Swami helped her to walk
towards interview room. Swami gave her a brief interview along with
others and after that she came out walking slowly on her own in a
blissful mood. On seeing this incident devotees were awstruck and
shouted in joy. That old lady was walking as if she was in a dream.
Swami was saying jovially from behind that she can even run like any
other youngster. This shows how Swami reacts to the griefs of His
devotees. He is a loving God.
