Due to the blessings of Shri Nathji Maharaj, I was born in a family of his ardent devotees. That is why I have been blessed by Shri Nathji Maharaj. Shri Nathji Maharaj filled my soul ever since I was a child. I owe my existence to the blessings and teachings of the great Shri Shri 1008 Kripasindhu Hanumannathji Maharaj.
When my daughter was born 3 years after my marriage, I started having fever after a month of the delivery. It continued for 6 months and I remained senseless for 6 hours every day. Nobody used to take care of me. I had weakened down a lot. I could barely breathe. Then I sought blessings from Shri Nathji Maharaj. Then my kind guru hanumannathji Maharaj saw my condition and could not help weeping. “What has happened to my flower-like child? I have to do something now.” And he started caressing my head with his palm. And then due to the blessings of my Guru, a new strength was generated in my life by miracle. It was like a flame strengthening up after pouring ghee in the lamp. My guru not only gave me a new life, but changed my fate altogether. That is why the saying goes like only the guru can change one’s fate.
One day my guru told me, “Now I’ll make something of my child.” And exactly after one year of his saying this, I got through in the nursing training course. It was due to his blessings that I finished the nursing course with good marks. My guru always called me “Doctorni” (lady doctor). That is why I am respected like doctors. This way, the sorrows that filled my life, my guru Shri Shri 1008 Kripasindhu Hanumannathji Maharaj removed all of them and filled my life with happiness. This way my life changed after going through the ashram. Whatever I have got in my life, I have got due to the blessings of Shri Nathji Maharaj.
I have been given everything by Shri Nathji Maharaj. So, if I can serve the ashram, that too will be due to the blessings of Shri Shri Nathji Maharaj. So I always pray for Shri Nathji Maharaj’s blessings.
My guru Shri Shri 1008 Kripasindhu Hanumannathji Maharaj was very kind and loving. He could not bare any of his devotees’ sorrow. Perhaps he left the earth prematurely due to this only. The unfortunate me did not get much opportunity to sit at my guru’s feet and serve him. I can see my guru’s reflections in the present Friar Shri Narharinathji Maharaj, and I satisfy myself by serving him. I feel like sitting at my guru’s feet when I sit at his feet. This way my wish of sitting at my guru’s feet is fulfilled. Oh guru, always be kind to me.
Once I became sad and thought that I will not be able to do anything in life. I am ignorant. That very night I saw my guru Shri hanumannathji Maharaj in my dream at night, and I said this to him. “Gurudev, I am ignorant. I cannot even go for a pilgrimage. You are all the 4 holy places for me.” Then my guru said in my dream, “What is knowledge? Knowledge says, serve. If you can’t serve, practice religion. If you can’t practice religion, pray. Otherwise, follow whatever your guru says.” This way my guru taught me bout knowledge. The present Guru Narharinathji is a great mind reader. He understood my wish for pilgrimage and due to his blessings only I had the sight of Gorakshnathji in my dream. I could not understand the significance of this sight. After a few months, Shri Narharinathji assigned me with the responsibility of establishing Gorakshnathji’s image in a place like Kolayat and thus made me suitable to serve. Thus by the blessings of my guru, by the blessings of Friar Narharinathji Maharaj and by the blessings of Baba Shri Amritnathji Maharaj, I have visited all the 4 holy places. It is really true that serving Shri Nathji Maharaj is equal to visiting all the 4 holy places. So I always pray to Shri Nathji Maharaj to make me suitable to serve.
