Dr Amita Singh

'Nothing will happen to your child'
Then in year 2000, Daksh developed loss of appetite accompanied with fever, weight loss and enlarged lymph nodes. The doctor treated him with antibiotics, but nothing worked. It was a Monday when we took him to Sir Ganga Ram hospital to get him examined by a senior specialist there. In my heart of hearts, I feared the worst. Daksh's symptoms were pointing towards a cancer process. I clutched at Guruji's picture while walking into the doctor's cabin. I was praying for my son's good health and repeatedly asking Guruji for His blessing. I knew that it was in His power to correct the ailment in a split second. The cabin filled with His fragrance. I had heard in the past that if you remember Guruji truly, He always comes to your rescue. The rosy scent signified His presence.

The doctor examined Daksh and was very upset and looked disappointingly at me. He had found both the spleen and liver enlarged, clearly pointing towards malignancy.

The doctor made me feel the enlarged organs and asked for an ultrasound of the abdomen immediately to assess the extent of involvement. I was near to tears fervently praying to Guruji to take care of this problem. I had heard of so many miracles and so I was convinced that He could cure my son. Throughout the 40-minute drive to the radiologist, Guruji's fragrance reached out to us reassuringly.

While the ultrasound was being conducted, my son and I could feel His presence as His fragrance lingered around us. With Guruji's blessings, the ultrasound was normal. The entire diagnosis changed, even the liver and spleen were found to be normal in size. Guruji had listened to our prayers and given a new lease of life to our child.

In the evening we reached Guruji's place, hoping to talk to Him about the day's events. We were pleasantly surprised as we entered the hall, for He called out with a mischievous smile on His lips: "So? What was the diagnosis?" I was overwhelmed: He already knew what had happened during the day and yet had given us an opportunity to satisfy our curiosity.

I told Him that the doctors were suspecting cancer. He kept quiet. I was near to tears when He said, "Don't worry; nothing will happen to your child." I inquired if I needed to conduct the various tests which were due. He answered that as I was a doctor I would not understand and I could go ahead as I wished to. Somewhere my logical mind would not let things rest with Him, and so I got a gamut of investigations conducted on my son. Believe it or not, each one came out normal.

Finally, a biopsy was conducted on the lymph nodes which, by now, had started joining (or matting). The lymph node which was removed showed changes to the naked eye. I was confused. How could this be? Guruji had said that all would be fine, but then why this? All kinds of thoughts came to my mind. I was desperate.

That evening I was asked to come to His sangat once a week only. I wondered why He had done this. Next week, the biopsy results came and they were reported to be normal. The surgeon could not believe it; he said it was a miracle. We, of course, knew who had performed it. Guruji had blessed my son, so this had to be.

A few weeks later, Guruji one day just said: "Jaa tere munde nu theek kar ditta (I have cured your son)." From that day, the fever disappeared, his appetite became better, the lymph node started reducing in size and the matting disappeared. Thanks to Guruji, Daksh became all right. No medication whatsoever was given to him, as no conclusive diagnosis about his condition could ever be made.

With Guruji every moment is a miracle and worth living for. He holds your hand and guides you gently. He carries your burden on Himself without letting you know. He clears the path ahead and makes it soft and pleasant. He shields you from all evil, all wrong and holds you close to His bosom like a mother would, to protect her child. And when you go wrong He gently prods you back to the right path. He listens to you, every breath that you take, and gives you the faith to believe in the goodness of God - and that is Him. Unassumingly, He watches over you and all other lives that even fleetingly touch you, blessing each one all the way. He has no airs, no ego, He makes no demands. He is forever giving. He is unfathomable. Amongst the thousands that throng for His darshan, not a single one goes unblessed. Each one of us feels that He is with him only. He shows the correct way of conducting one's duties in this world. He suffers silently when we go astray and also when He takes the burden of our pain on Himself. Believe me: There is no one like Him, never has been and never ever will be.

My mother was hospitalized some years ago, and the doctors felt that her haemoglobin was very low and she would need a transfusion. We rushed to Guruji and shared our worries with Him. He smiled and blessed her. The very next day, she was back home with all her tests normal.
