A parents came with their only daughter. I invited them in and inquired their purpose of visit. The mother said, “She is my daughter and is 32 years old. She has not attained puberty. Will she? Will she get married? Does she have the blessing of bearing her offspring? Can you please ask Agastya Muni?”
For those who come with such ailments, I usually ask them a few questions.
“Did you ask the doctors about this?”
“We did. They said that there is no chance. Only Agastya Muni can guide us..” – they said humbly with tears. I opened the Nadi after praying. In it, He explained about a few effects due to the previous births, mentioned about a herb (Karuthondri, as called in Tamil) that grows either in Chathuragiri or Kolli Hills and explained about the pure juice out of those herb.
“These herbs grow only once in ten months. So have patience, get the juice from a siddha-vaidhya (a vaidhya aka physician who practices the Siddha way of treatment) and take it on an early morning of an Amavasya day, she will attain puberty after thirteen months.”
“Will she get to bear her offspring post marriage?” – asked the mother.
“That blessing will happen after four years.” – said the Maha Muni.
This should have made the parents happy. But they did not appear so! They were quiet, which made me suspect their motives. The girl kept quiet with her head down. I could see tears coming off her eyes. The father began to talk.
“Sir, you should not mistake us. I have taken her to all possible doctors.
They mentioned that there is no way that she can attain puberty as the uterus has shrunk so much and has become useless and that no medical treatment can help.”
I was shocked a bit indeed. When the uterus itself is not functioning, how come the eggs develop? How did then the Maharishi said all these? The father showed a few medical certificates. One said that she does not have uterus at all and the other one said that there is, but it is not functioning. Another certificate from a famous lady doctor said that the lady does not have a bone near her right hip and so there are chances that she will attain puberty and bear her child. But she must undergo a severe treatment for eight long years and even that does not guarantee a result.
I began to think, having said and shown all these, how come Agastya simply asked to take a herbal juice and all will be well? How can one believe it? I could tell them only this. “You asked the Maharishi. He has given a favourable reply too. That is all. I could not explain this more. It is up to you and Agastya Muni hereafter.”
“We have come here only as a last resort, having full faith in Agastya Muni. We will do as He has suggested. But…”
“How can we ensure that the herbs we may get in the hills is genuine? Only the Maha Muni can guide us here too. Please help us.” – said the father.
“Why not? Get me the herbs, I shall check.” – I sent them off.
Six months passed. The father came with three bottles filled with some essence. “I have brought three types of the herbal juice from Podhigai, Kolli and Chathuragiri hills. Are these the Karuthondri herbal essence? Will these solve the issue with the uterus, not sure. On these, what should my daughter take in? Please ask Agastya Muni.”
I opened the Nadi after praying to Agastya.
“None of these are the essence of Karuthondri. On top of the Podhigai hills, this herb can be obtained from the dense forest area where wild animals like tiger and lion roam about, near a small water falls, to the left of it can be seen a cave. This herb grows near that cave. Once got that, preserve it for six months and the essence is obtained. It is the only garbha-dosha-nivarana herb. All these are not the right ones.” – said the Siddha!
The father was desperate saying, “Had He mentioned these that day itself, we could have brought the same.”
“When you came that day, you had no faith in Agastya’s words. You only believed in what the current doctors said. Hence Agastya did not open His mouth.” – came the reply, instantly.
This is true indeed. Most of those who come to read the Nadi does not believe that the words are straight from Agastya Muni Himself. They approach it as if they seek an astrologer, not as that of a word of God, a word of Siddha. Agastya Muni obviously know these people and based on their temperament, gives His reply accordingly as they don’t follow the remedial measures
with utmost devotion and faith. Agastya does not bother about this either. If they then say nothing happened, He replies almost immediately “to go elsewhere and seek guidance”. Agastya Muni is not at loss here :).
The mother agreed to what the Maha Muni said. The father agreed to bring the right herb from Podhigai hills this time and bid farewell. A month weny by.
“Sir. It seems we cannot go to Podhigai Hills. The forest officials have strictly denied the entry saying they will allow only during the end of April or May. Only then you can go and do what you need to do, they said.” – the father was exhausted.
“Just have patience. We cannot do anything now.” – even I took a distance from this issue. But the father persisted and asked me to check the Nadi again.
“Within three months, a journey to Podhigai Hills will be scheduled. If used, the herb can be obtained.” – came the reply. Four months went by. The parents came back to me with a bottle that contained an essence.
Agastya Muni confirmed that it was the right herb as well. They had met a Siddha at Podhigai Hills who gave them the instruction on how to use that herb and made Agastya’s task simpler. They took the herb which was obtained after months’ struggle happily with them. I prayed as well for the girl. It will be a miracle if this girl attains puberty and bears her child, in this world which certified that she does not have an uterus or that it is not functioning and she cannot attain puberty. Some eight months has passed by after all these.
The doctors who examined the girl has found the growth of uterus in that girl, though it appeared very weak, the parents were extremely happy that she might attain puberty in a duration of three months. They updated me on this as well. However, they were worried that this girl should attain puberty, get married and bear her child. But they said this: “We totally believe in Agastya Muni. Let whatever may happen, happen.”
Six months passed by. The girl did attain puberty. The doctors certified that she can bear her child and that the uterus has grown stronger. The parents’ joy knew no bounds. The girl now has a twins and are going to school.
Agastya Muni proved His words, again. That is all I can say!
