H. K. Kaul
my memory back to my early years of childhood
(early forties), I remember to have come across
this great saint living in Srinagar near my house
in those days. For me the actions he exhibited in
public were naturally incomprehensible. As the
years rolled by, I had the opportunity to see and
hear more and more of this great man. As a
consequence I developed admiration and respect for
this great man. I was neither a regular visitor
nor a devotee. But things happened and shaped in
such a manner that I was bestowed with a huge
tally of his blessings and prophesies, which
without an exception turned out to be true. It is
neither possible nor wise to narrate all of them.
I shall mention briefly only a few of these to
express my reverence to Swami Ji.
late fifties, I was working as a junior doctor in
a dispensary in Srinagar. Through the window I
could see Swami Ji coming in to the area with his
"sewaks" and paraphernalia. It was
unusual to think of him coming to a crowded
dispensary. There was another senior doctor also
working in the dispensary and working on the same
table. But Swami Ji negotiated the way and came
straight to the place where I was working. He
gazed at my face for a while and a cascade of
tears started rolling down from his eyes. This
continued almost for an hour, with other things in
between. He would ask me to kiss the "Rachhi"
(locket) he wore across his neck. He hugged me
several times, and all the time floodgates of
tears were opened. This turned out to be a miracle
for me. In the same week I became a victim of a
lethal mob attack. With the grace of God and
blessing of Swami Ji I came out of it with no
residual disease or deformity.
day at dawn, I along with my wife went to Swami Ji
in Karan Nagar. He was alone in his room
with a resplendent face, reciting some "slokas"
loudly. He was in a very fine mood. I had to seek
his advice on an issue where I was a victim of
indecision. I never asked Swami Ji anything, but
he would pour out the replies promptly on his own.
In his sweet monologue, he told me that, I should
not leave my home for foreign lands and all my
genuine demands have already been sanctioned. He
gave a me a clear and lucid picture of the country
where I wanted to go on a foreign assignment. He
had such a clear vision which could convince even
a dull person.
narrating these brief anecdotes just a bird's
eyeview of the command he had in making prophecies
with more than computerised accuracy is presented
respectable homage to Swami Ji, for I owe him a
