The Founder’s first residence in Bombay [ Mumbai ] was that of P.M.R. in Santa Cruz सांता क्रुझ ; the second of P.D.D.in Malad मालाड , and the third of P.M.D. at Matunga माटुंगा . This P.M.D.had wonderful experiences of Mother’s Grace.He was suffering from an incurable disease.Someone told him,” When you are fully assured the disease can not be cured by doctor , tell me, I will bring a religious doctor who will surely cure you. “The Founder was taken to P.M.D. He could not pass his stools without a painful crying for an hour and a half. The host was a puccaa scientist and an atheist.He began thus,” I do not believe in God and Religion and all the humbugs going in the name of Religion.Please excuse me for being plain-spoken. In as much however as my wife and children have a claim over me , I do not object to follow your any instructions.” He wife and daughter begged the Founder’s pardon and entreated Founder not to ind the impudence. The Founder said,” You have no idea of Mother’s Mercy. I will be here next Friday.”
The next Friday, Founder prayed to the Mother that was installed and performed his mantras , etc. and gave him water. ” just have a drink and go to your lavatory.Wonder of of wonders !No pain at all !! Atheism which was there for over forty-nine years evaporated in two hours. P.M.D. asked,” What is the whole process working ?” Founder said,” MOTHER’S PURE AND SIMPLE GRACE.
Founder laughs in his sleeves when any one unthoughtful man is shouting with his bombast of” Where is God ? Bring him to me . I will put him in a test-tube and see what He is made up of .” Mother would change the wildest atheists to be weakest lambs , in no time. They must have that as their best fortune.
” A change can not be a complete one in a day ” – P.M.D. began to think in away, that there may be certain effects of previous treatments which accidentally synchronised with his drinking ” the sanctified water “. He very respectfully and apologetically expressed his doubt. Founder asked,” Do you think you are cured ?by after effects of your past medicines ? Well then , report to me the results of tomorrow. ” The same old crying !! P.M.D. was made to be convinced that the medicine lay latent in the magnetized Lotus feet Waters.
P.M.D. argued, there must be something like a phonetic effect. A certain sound may be attracting element from ether , which might have the curing property.Founder said,” What is the meaning of this obstinacy ? If you fins a wonderful drug administered to you by Doctor of Medicines , would you not believe in the story as to how and where it was being prepared ? What is the meaning of your fabricating some theory and some argument based on mere imagination and dismissing the theory explained by the successful experimenter and administer-er himself ? ”
P.M.D. decided to perform the very same things , which the Founder did. The water did give a partial effect.There were repetitions of experiences. Founder’s “water” had full effect. P’s “water” had a partial effect. No water sipping the same old crying !! Which doctor or a scientist can explain this paradox ?? P. had already after few days , turned to be a believer; but still even up till now , he believes there is something in the Founder himself and he does not go beyond the Founder . Although he now admits the existence of God in abstract conception. Just as we find in the case of Girish Chandra Ghosh regarding Blessed Shree Paramahamsa , he would insist on holding , ” You yourself are Mai; you can do what you will; I have no proof for believing there is some higher power outside you . and other than you , working through you; I simply accept it because you say so. ”
Combination of scientific brain and devotional heart an extreme rarity
Unfortunately the modern world , a combination of a scientific brain and a devotional heart is an extreme rarity.A scientific man has as his weapons an extremely keen intellect and mental penetration to work upon the outside practical actual, workable , visible world . A devotee has as his weapons, an emotional attitude of internal purity and humility . A noble character and a righteous living with morality, virtue, religiosity and law-abindingness is an indispensable requirement for a devotee.He has his own very scruples and is not an ever changing opportunist. He is on the whole for constant unchangeable varieties. He has his wonderful strength or overpowering nervousness according he has devotional flights God’s Grace and proximity to his God, or despondency on the saturation of the idea of his unworthiness and over consciousness of his being below the disciplinary standard. His substance to work upon is the ideal invisible universe ,as he sees.
A scientist has a torch of a few furlongs ‘ further light and is sure of the grounds he has covered. He has however no definite thing as a destination and a desideratum at the destination ; he can not say what he will be leading the world to. On the whole , he is experimenting withe unknown.
A devotee is dependent on the sky-lightning alone. He runs up his maximum under the God’s Grace fighting. He knows the destination and the desideratum and is cent per cent sure about it. During the halt periods between two flights under the lightning , he has an immense joy as the immediate fruit of his exertion , which gives him every confidence about the right direction and the never-failing of hid guide and God. He gains a potential energy for further flights and a vision of the nearer proximity to the destination. His path being one of entire dependence , the point of great helplessness is that, though wonderful and miraculous happenings may proceed from and through a devotee , he can’t promise and stand a guaranty for even a smallest surety.
Science and Religion, although seemingly diagonally opposite , are the right and left hands , for the horizontal and vertical wheels of a compact machinery, which serve humanity and are both subservient to the Mother’s Divine Will. The one deals with grossest element of matter and the other with the subtlest element of mind. But both are governed by the highest Almighty , whose Grace wise men should ever implore , be he a devotee or a scientist.
Founder had to stay at Malad and he could not go to P.M.D. as often as required. P.M.D. suggested ,” You depute your powers to my daughter. “. Founder deputed his powers to her for the period P.M.D. was ill. She was made to sit before Mother and the needful initiation and delegation ceremony was done . Since then, the daughter’s doing what Founder did , had the full effect, till P.M.D. was completely cured.
During the treatment period , once P.M.D. had an urgent work. He had to go out, leaving his swing.P.M.D. told his daughter to pray to Mother, to give him rest of three hours when the usual other pain should stop.Said he ,” Pray in the name of Mai Kaka ( The Founder ) “. P.M.D. was entirely painless. He went into the Fort फोर्ट and attended a lot of work. While he was returning in a taxi , the pain started, just between Dadar दादर and Matunga माटुंगा . He looked at the watch. Exactly three hours after , the pain reappeared !!
The Founder , at the undeniable request of all home members , stayed at their place requesting P.D.D. to allow him to stay there. The disease was entirely cured with in ” nine weeks “ – the usual time period which the Founder states to all.
