Babosa Lease New Life


Click Here

I am in Plastic business.

This incident occurred in Patna. I had got a plastic making machine and was trying to off load it along with some more labourers. It was so heavy that it did not budge.

So to give it support from bottom before pushing it, I started keeping some bricks around it. Suddenly I was thrown away. Then I saw that the machine rolled over and came down heavily on the ground. If I had been near it, I would have been crushed to death.

That evening when I went home , my wife related a dream of hers. Manju Baisa had came in her dream and given her a pair of red bangles(considered a symbol of long life of husband) and told her to wear it as Lord Babosa has sent it for her.

It was then I understood that it was non other than Babosa who had saved my life.

List of Hindu Miracles

Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh has translated into English a poem by  Tamil saint Thayumanavar, who lived in southern India two hundred years ago. This gives an idea of the miracles done by Hindu saints, particularly Siddhars.

You can control a mad elephant

You can shut the mouth of bear or tiger

You can ride a lion

You can play with the cobra

You can make a living by alchemy

You can wander through the world incognito

You can make vassals of the gods

You can be ever youthful

You can walk on water

You can live in fire

You can achieve all Siddhis at home

But to control the mind is rare and difficult.

(*Tamil original is given at the end)

Controlling mind is harder than doing miracles. When a person starts doing severe penance he gets lots of temptations from the angels. (Kanchi Paramacharya says in one of his lectures that the angels hover around you and beg you to use them). Anyone who falls a prey to such temptation is trapped with women or gold or some strange desires such as building a new temple or starting a new movement or creating a Utopia. Those who ignore and go beyond that temptation will reach God.

But there are some saints, who come back from that stage to awaken the mankind. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa said that knowing that there is a big ocean of ever bliss, they rush back to the world to announce: Please Believe me, Please come with me, Please Join me to merge with the Nithya Ananda=Bliss forever.


Some examples for each category:

You can control a mad elephant

Appar did it. Uthayanan did it. Kanchi Pramacharya did it when the Mutt elephant was in ruts.

When a raging mad bull came running through a narrow lane, everyone else ran helter-skelter. Swami Vivekananda stood still and it went back the way it came.

You can shut the mouth of bear or tiger

Ramana Maharishi did it. He lived with tigers. Sastha/Ayappan did it.

Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahamsa Yogananda gives details about a Tiger Swami.

You can ride a lion

Goddess Durga did it. King Bharata (India is named after him) did it.

You can play with the cobra

All the Hindu Gods have cobra on their bodies. Hindu saints tamed cobras. They meditated in forest and anthills formed over them over the years. Cobras use ant hills as their home. A cobra entered saint Ramana’s ashram and went back when he stared at it.

You can make a living by alchemy

Adi Shankara brought rain of gold coins.

Vidyaranya got bars of gold established Hindu Empire through Harihara and Bukka.

Appar and Sambandhar got gold coins from nowhere.

You can wander through the world incognito

Krishna multiplied himself hundreds time to be with all the Gopikas at the same time. Narada travels to three different worlds incognito and suddenly appear before devotees.

You can be ever youthful

Markandeya was ever 16 years old (Is that why we call sweet sixteen?)

You can walk on water

Padma padacharya ( Lotus Footed) did it when Adi Shankara called him.

When he rushed to serve his Guru he walked on the river and lotus flowers came out to hold his feet.

You can live in fire

Adi Shankara did drink boiling iron to teach his disciples a lesson, who were blindly imitating everything he did.
