The GOS 104 – Clarity & faith can move mountains

The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.

My firm belief is that the Siddhas protect the world, if we see some of the incidents. As though the God Almighty has given the power of attorney to the Siddhas and has gone for vacation. Though we pray to God, many a times, He shows us the way through the Siddhas only.

I was reading the Nadi of Bhoga Siddha that day when a couple came and saluted. They appeared poor. I asked them about the reason for their visit. They said:

“O Sire, we have a 12 year old daughter. From birth, she is deaf and dumb and mentally unstable. We are a very poor family and we have nobody to help us. We tried all treatments that we could afford but of no use. The only thing resulted was the spending of money and we becoming indebted. We heard that you read the Nadi and suggest medicines and the grace of Siddhas. Can you please get a medicine from the Siddhas?” – they were in tears.

I was astonished to see the way they asked. When asking for help from someone, one has to know how to ask for help in the correct manner. Though appeared illeterate, I was inspired by the way they asked for help correctly. I felt that there will be an apt reply from the Siddha and I opened Bhoga’s Nadi after praying the way it is to be done.

The message that appeared was very fast and so was the way it ended. Yes, Bhoga Siddha is well versed in conveying any big thing in a short and sweet manner. This time too He said, “Take your daughter to Kolli Hills within three days. There she will get a new life.”

I asked them to carry out this task at once but began to think myself.

“They appear to be very poor. Where will they stay in Kolli Hills? Who will identify them and provide them medicine? Instead of making them roam around like this, it would have been great if Bhoga Siddha had mentioned them the name of the medicine.”

However, what miracle is the Siddha going to make? Who knows? One thing is for sure. It is a good omen that He Himself asked them to go to Kolli Hills and that they will be guided properly, I felt. Three months passed by and I did not hear anything from them. I got busy reading Nadi for others. On a day, I suddenly thought about them and wanted to ask Bhoga Siddha Himself. I opened the Nadi.

“As per Bhoga’s orders, the parents and daughter climbed the mountain. The treatment is in progress. They will return once it is complete. Have patience till then.” – I gave a sigh of relief.

Six months passed by.

The parents came with their daughter, all appeared happy. The male narrated:

“As per the Bhoga Siddha, we reached the basement of Kolli Hills and were thinking whom to ask what. Then there came a person who appeared like a beggar: “There is a pooja going on in Shiva temple. There is a Siddha. If He wishes, your problem will be cured. When He comes closer, ask your daughter to fall at His feet. There will be a cure to your daughter’s problem.”

We went to the temple he mentioned. Inside that temple, there were many of them who appeared like Siddhas. We did not know who ‘that’ Siddha was and were motionless. It was a full-moon day and so the pooja was very elaborate. We waited patiently till the pooja was over. When it got over, a person who appeared very tall came out of the crowd. He had such a light in his eyes! The moment we saw him, our daughter fell at his feet all by herself. We were surprised. A girl who cannot understand anything at all,
how did she do this? We fell at His feet too. We having said nothing, He said, “I shall give the medicine once the pooja is over.” We said, “Very well Swami. We shall wait.”

We were surprised, got goose pimps all over our body thinking that our daughter indeed will see the light, we thanked the Lord and that Swami and were watching the pooja they were doing, standing in a corner. Till the end, the way the pooja was done made us feel goose pimps all over. It was as if the Lord Almighty was present Himself, accepting the offering they were doing, we felt. We have visited many a temples, but never have we seen such a pooja.

Once it got over, He came with a herbal tonic and asked my daughter to drink. Then He said, “Come after fourty days. Till then, follow some regulations strictly and explained them in detail. We bid farewell with tears in our eyes and returned after fourty days. He was there, gave another tonic to our daughter to drink. Again fourty days of regulations, a revisit. This continued for about six months and once six months pass by, He said, “The medicine in-take is sufficient. Your daughter will become alright within one Mandala (48 days). Observe the regulations. No need to come here. To the ‘Vaidhyanatha Swamy’ (Lord Shiva) in your town,
arrange for an Abhisheka. That will be the respect you will show to the Lord. We do not want anything”. He said these and as we were looking at him awe-struck, he walked inside the sanctum sanctorum and disappeared!!!”

“Talk to my daughter yourself. She has become perfectly alright.” he said. I could not believe what has happened. That girl folded her hands paying Namaskar and prostrated before me. I got tears in my eyes. I lifted her off saying, “Amma, You are blessed by the Siddha. You should not prostrated before me.” – I lifted both my hands and blessed her.

Then I asked him, “Ok, whom do you think who had come there?”

“The one who installed the Nava Bhashana Muruga idol in Pazhani, The Bhoga Siddha, who else can that be?” – said that poor, illeterate person with so much of clarity. I met a person who is called illeterate but with that clarity for the first time in my life. I was immensely happy that I shook both his hands with both of mine.

The moral of this incident is: Even if a problem comes that seems like the very livelihood will disappear, if one remains absolutely clear and with steadfast faith….he or she will get the darshan of Siddha such as this person. They will get the blessing of such a pooja being conducted, to remain right there and witness it. Above all, a permanent solution to the problem will appear.

If we have got the Grace of Siddha, there won’t be anything for us that is not achievable.

The GOS 103 – The Siddha of Siddhas, Lord Shiva!

The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.

I firmly believe that the Siddhas know everything. Generally, those who come for Nadi reading to remediate their issues, listen to what comes out of Nadi and get scared most of the times and don’t do what is prescribed in it. Then when the problem goes severe, they come back again and get some more remedial measures, only tougher. I have heard some people murmuring “the earlier method suggested itself was simpler”.

I have seen the most of them have a wrong impression about Lord Shiva Himself! He owns and carries out the 5 major tasks where the task of destruction or better said in Sanskrit, Samhara, is done by Him, Himself. He is not for the worldly and material wealth, so why ask for such things to Him? But a few others, they don’t think all these: “The Siddha has said. Who are we to ask and counter? Let us just do it with our heart and soul put in and let Him take care of the rest” – and they do what is suggested. I have seen their problems getting away much faster.

Just like the Agastya Jeeva Nadi, through His grace, I had another Nadi of Bhoga Siddha. It generally gives information on Bhoga Siddha’s medicinal methods, certain herbs for certain diseases etc., just that the letters appear in the same golden color as that of Agastya Muni’s Jeeva Nadi. I have read that Nadi as well and have helped people get medicinal remedies.

There came a young couple one day.

“We got a child after a few years of getting married. It is of two years old and has born with health issues.”

“What sort of health issue?”

“After it turned one and a half, all of a sudden its body becomes bluish in color. We used to rush to the hospital and after some treatment, the color goes off. But neither us nor the doctors are able to estimate when the disease will come back. We have tried various different ailments. Earlier it used to come once in a month but now, the frequency has turned weekly. Only during our last visit, a doctor was able to diagnose how this disease comes. He says that our kid has a hole in its heart, right from its birth. When the pumping of blood does not happen properly, the lack of oxygen turns the body bluish. He says there are only two ways of cure to it. One is to do a surgery but the kid does not have the strength to endure the surgery where the result of such treatment could be anything.”

“Ok. What’s the second method he said?”

“That doctor believes in the medicinal marvels of Bhoga Siddha. So he believes that if Bhoga Siddha’s grace is there, He could save this child and he asked us to check with you on what Bhoga Siddha says in His Nadi. Only you can read this Nadi and show is the way out of this problem.”

I took the Nadi of Bhoga and prayed earnestly, “O Siddha Lord! Please provide a good judgement to this couple’s child.”

The Siddha came in the Nadi:

Only the Three Eyed Lord can save this child. If the kid is to be saved, it has to be dipped in Alak Nanda river, thrice, on a Thursday that too. When it is being bathed thus, Shiva-Nama must be chanted continuously. For sure, Lord Shiva will come and save this child!” – said these and disappeared at once.

Normally, Bhoga Siddha answers short and crisp. As he did not say about any medicine and that the child has to be dipped in Alak Nanda river thrice, the parents were really shocked. The river, known for its cold water where people freeze even to bathe once. This kid, who has a weak heart, how can this be dipped thrice in that ice-cold water?!! I thought.

“Apart from these, he didn’t say anything?” – the parents asked.

“I have mentioned what Bhoga has said. He didn’t say anything else. Please do as He said. You will come back with a good news.”

The couple left, mentally tired. I didn’t hear anything from them for two months. After two months, they came, with a exhausted face and informed me that the kid is becoming weaker day by day and they could not carry out the Bhoga Siddha had suggested them.

“Can you please read that Nadi once more and see if He says anything more?” – they asked. I did so and they got the same exact reply as before. I looked at their tired face and said, “Lord Shiva had destroyed the very karma which was the cause of a disease. He will definitely save your child. Just think that this child is hereafter Lord Shiva’s and do what Bhoga Siddha said, at once. Good will happen.” – I said.

I don’t know what they felt.

“We’re taking your words as a divine clairvoyance and think that from this minute, we shall think that this child is Lord Shiva’s and will carry out what is said.”

They came after two weeks. The child was playing in their arms, appearing happy and healthy. They appeared very happy too and carried a number of experiences which gives goose pimps to me to this day. They narrated what happened:

“Just as Bhoga Siddha said, we took our kid to the AlakNanda river in the Himalayas. We were shocked at the fierce and chillness of the water. How can we dip this kid in this water? – this thought occurred to us twice. Just before the same question hit us the third time, just as the Siddha said, we utterred the name “Namah Shivaya” and dipped it slowly, once. We didn’t know what happened. Normally, such chillness will make any kid scream. But our kid liked that chillness and it smiled. At that time, a Sadhu came to our side and said, “Give me the child. I shall bathe it and return it to you. Don’t have to worry.” – and he got our child.

He went further down to where we stood, a deeper portion of the river and dipped the kid many a times, came near us, (thadavi tharudhal – word search), took the Holy Bhasm from his wet garment, applied it in the kids’ forehead, chest and put a little in it’s mouth, he murmured something in it’s right ear and handed it over to us. We got busy wiping out the water in its body as soon as we received the child where we forgot even to say our thanks to the Sadhu. For a minute’s gap when we looked up, the Sadhu
was not to be found!

The body of the kid was warmer than before and so we thought everything should have been alright. We took it back to the doctors who checked it and they were flabbergasted! They said that the hole in its heart is completely filled and the pumping is happening properly now. We do not know who that Sadhu was and how he cured it. But good has happened just as you said. Please convey our sincere thanks and gratefulness to Bhoga Siddha.

I asked Bhoga Siddha in His Nadi and He mentioned…

This divine play has been orchestrated by Lord Shiva Himself! When He, the foremost of all Siddhas, the Siddha of all Siddhas, wants to run this play, what role do we have there? Our job got over after we said what has to be done. Hence, there wasn’t any medicine given out. There won’t be an understanding on some divine plays, one should not try to understand the meaning either!” – the Siddha concluded with this short and sweet advice.

I was taken aback for a while knowing that the Lord Shiva Himself is roaming amidst us as a Siddha!

The Grace of Siddha–12 – Total transformation

The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.

I was preparing for the arrangements to go do Badrachalam as the Sage had mentioned “Go to Badrachalam. You will get the darshan of Sri Rama!” However, whether the duo got their
medicines in Kolli Hills just how Somasundaram’s legs got cured through the grace of Siddha Agastya, these two must have benefited too, but why haven’t I got any updates so far?” – I wondered.

Just as I thought, I heard the voice “ayya (O sir!)” from the entrance. I opened the door.

There stood no one else than Madasamy, his chief and behind them stood an entire family of children, women etc. I felt something good has indeed happened. I invited them in.

They came in and at once fell at my feet, one by one. They had a huge bunch of banana, beetle leaves, beetle nuts, from a sweet shop called Lala’s sweet shop that’s famous at their place, they had bought Jilebi etc as though they were carrying the items commonly presented to the girl on her wedding!

They showed the child to me. Some herbal juice was oozing from its eyes. Madasamy came and introduced his wife to me.

“Please tell me in detail on what happened in Kolli Hills” – I asked him. He began narrating.

“Sir, we both alone went to Kolli Hills. At first, we could not find who could be that Kolli Hills Siddha. Upon inquiring with so many, somebody said that there will be a person on hill top, a further mile
distance upwards from where we were”.

We searched in two different directions and could not find any Siddha Vaidhya. Our hearts broke. But we felt “As Agastya Muni has said, it must be correct” and slept off spreading our towel in the bare ground, tired as we were roaming really well.

“You see, at that time, an old man woke me up tapping and asked “aren’t you Madasamy?”

“Yes I am sir, may I know who you are?” – I asked.

That I shall tell later. The two of you came along right?

“Yes sir”

Very well. Come with me. I shall give the medicine to your wife! I shall give it to this man’s son also. Do the treatment just as I say once you get it. Your wife will be alright and so will be his son – he said this all by himself sir!”

“I felt that this is indeed the person that Agastya Muni mentioned. But I wondered how he knew my name?!!” I bowed to him and woke up our brother (the chief). Then we followed him”

“He made us sit at the entrance of a hut and went inside, came after a little while. “Pour this herbal juice in the child’s eyes three times a day, daily. He will begin to see the 30th day. Then to get the complete eyesight back, come here and get some more herbal juice. This child will surely get his eyesight back, saying this, he gave a huge bottle full of herbal juice to brother”.

Bottle with herbs
Bottle with herbs

“For me..?” I asked. “What’s the hurry? Have a little patience, would you? yelled at me and he gave me a parcel full of some powder saying ‘here, grab hold’. I received it with utmost care and asked ‘how should we consume this?”

Mix Sendhuram and honey and take it three times a day. Do not add salt in food. You could have butter milk. Say no to coffee or tea. Two days after started consuming this, a slight fever will be there. If it does, grind this medicine with small gall-nut and take. Right on the 27th day, her heart disease will relieve her. Then she can consume anything, nothing would happen to her life” – he said“.

We prostrated before him and offered him money for which he said “this money is sinful, to kill somebody, this has been procured. I wouldn’t accept this. You may go now“, saying this, he went inside the hut only not to come out at all.

We peeped into the hut to see nobody inside! We stood there for long and then we came back to our place” – finished Madasamy.

“Very glad to know. How is your wife’s heart disease?” – I asked.

“Oh she is very fine sir. It looks like the disease is gone indeed, take a look yourself” – said Madasamy happily.

I glanced at the wife of Madasamy. The village girl’s eyes showed no sign of deceit and appeared to be recovering well also.

“How are you Amma?” – Here, this revered person denotes this lady as we do to our Mothers. This is the best part in the Indian culture, to refer the womanhood as Mothers, irrespective of their ages. The English language cannot translate it exactly. So we may say “How are you ma?” – even this appear only a distant closer.

“Sire, for eight long years, I had pain in the chest. There isn’t a doctor whom I have not checked with and there isn’t a treatment I have not undergone. My Father and brother even sold their land for my treatment but nothing worked…”

“How are you now, tell that to Sire first” – intervened Madasamy. “I took the medicine got from Kolli Hills, now I don’t have the pain, I am able to breathe really well, I am very happy O sire!” – her happiness was evident.

“Oh is it?! Very well, I am really glad to know” – I said. Then I turned towards Madasamy and said “its great that your wife is cured, and your brother’s child has got his eyesight back, well, did you visit the Kolli Hills Siddha again?”

“I went once sir, and see the surprise is, where I met him exactly, there isn’t any hut or any Siddha Vaidhya! I inquired here and there and everyone confirmed that there wasn’t any hut or a therapist who lived there!”

“Is it?!”

“Somehow, whose good-karma we don’t know, my brother’s kid got his eyesight back and my wife got cured also. So many thanks to you. We came with the family only to convey our thanks” – said
Madasamy.

“So what are you going to do for a living henceforth? Are you going back to the old route of robbery, rowdyism and kidnap-murder etc?” – I asked sarcastically.

“O No sir! Neither me nor my brother will ever turn towards that side” said Madasamy “as you said, my brother has decided to do service in an Ashram, it is me who don’t know what to do, will you request this to the Sage Agastya?” – he asked.

I prayed to the Maha Muni for them and opened the Jeeva Nãdi. The Sage gave a few advice:

Do the Sun Prayer every Sunday. On the sixth Sunday, you both will get a good job with a very good salary, from a good place. A condition however, take a small portion from the salary you get, and give it for orphaned children’s food” – ordered the Sage.

They accepted it happily and heartily.

Just as the Muni said, both of them got a job from a very big company, that too on the sixth Sunday right after they finished their prayers. They both are sending money to orphaned children every month, owing to their gratitude towards Agastya Muni.

Through the grace of Siddha Agastya, Madasamy studied Siddha Medicine and is helping many a people heal with a smiling face till this day, is indeed a surprise. The brother of Madasamy, as his child got his eyesight back, is helping however he could for anyone who cannot afford to buy medicine for eye-related diseases. A don, involved in murder and kidnapping got transformed totally through the grace of Agastya’s divine words – I felt so proud thinking of this.

I did ask the Sage on who indeed was that Siddha Vaidhya who gave these duo the medicines another day. What the sage replied was…!

He is my beloved Shishya* Bhogan!! As per my request, He Himself went directly to provide them the medicine. This indeed is a good karma of them!” – * Shishya-disciple.

“O! So in that case, will anyone get this bhagyam (blessing)?”

Sure will. Bhoga is still roaming in Kolli Hills. Those who sincerely pray to Bhoganath, he will come in the form of some Vaidhya and treat and save their lives

“In that case, how do identify Sage Bhogar? Any therapist will appear like Bhoga Himself. How will one identify?”

There will appear a bright light in his eyes, if you smell Thulasi or the smell of Bhasm (Vibuthi / holy ash) mixed with Javvadhu (a sort of natural perfume, as said to be the secretion from civet-cat) comes, know that He is Siddha Bhoga!!!

“Oh! then the other therapist whom we might see?”

Those who are the disciples of Bhoga, well versed in Siddha Vaidhya right from their tender ages. They pray only to Bhoga and do their treatments, and so their treatment will also be fruitful” -said the Sage.

I felt a sort of peace on hearing this. Someday I should go to Kolli Hills, and have the darshan of Bhoga Muni, I desired.

The darshan of Bhogar, and the book He wrote on Palm leaves about medicine, both you will get! Having read that, you are going to write a wonderful book in the future, which will be beneficial for others” – the Sage blessed me the other day.

Go to Badrachalam. There you will witness many a surprises. You will get the darshan of Sri Rama indirectly. Do not miss this chance” – since the Sage kept on reminding me about this, I began to set forth. But just before I started, I should have asked the permission from Sage Agastya which I did not. As a result, I got stuck really.

Yes.

When I went inside the temple of Badrachalam, it started raining, heavily. Due to the heavy rainfall, Godavari river flood surrounded the temple base, up to hip-level. There were water everywhere around the temple. I was stuck in the middle.
