Sages of the New Covenant
“I will stand my watch, And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected. The Just Live by Faith. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision, And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
- Habakkuk 2:1-4
It was a hot summer day in May 1994 at V.G.P. Murphy Nagar, Thirunelvelli. The impetus for Swami Sthevananda to leave his parents, at the time, his presence would mean a lot to them is a fifteen days Professional Development Program (PDP) of the Indian Society for Applied Behavioral Science (ISABS) that was scheduled for the 5th May 1994, for which, he had been nominated by his company – GEC Alsthom. Swamiji was the only son and his father had just come home after a second surgery in the intestine, as the first one had failed to join the intestines that were cut to remove the tumor that was blocking the food-passage. Their house too was in a remote place; hence, he felt convicted to leave him. But PDP by ISABS was a dream of every HRD professional and swamiji was waiting for the chance ever since 1987, when he came know of thistraining. He was in a dilemma.
An idea struck swamiji’s mind on 30th May 1994: Why not try his Universal Life Energy that he had been initiated by Master Maheshwari, from Bombay on 5th December 1993? Definitely, it would be an acid test whether he had harnessed his healing capability or not.
Swamiji asked his father: “Do you believe in healing?” He replied, “Yes. I do.”
Swamiji explained the process and made his father to lay on the floor at the living room and started the Universal Life Energy session after a short prayer.
The entire Universal Life Energy session is generally done with eye closed and swamiji too closed his eyes and energized all the major seven Energy Centers and minor Energy Centers from head to toe. Later he put both his hand on the place the surgery had been done to give additional healing energy.
What a surprise!!!
All of sudden the intestine, particularly the portion where stitches had been done became visible in his mental eye. This is known as the Spiritual X-Ray vision. Later swamiji was able to see the both the cut ends of his father’s intestine getting fused together well.
Swamiji told his father that cut ends of the intestine had joined together well and his father too believed what swamiji had said. This X-Vision that he had seen, gave him the confidence to leave his father at the care of his mother on 31st May 1994 and left for Madras to report for duty.
At this juncture, it is imperative that one should get to know more about the Natural Healing Process:
God has created human beings with Natural Healing process to cure us, whenever our physical body succumbed to illness. This natural healing could be activated by prayerfully focusing our mind on the affected area. Here we need to understand that a living human being possesses two bodies – one physical body and another Outer Body (Aura), which wraps the physical body.
The physical body is controlled by the heart; which is why, the brain-dead are not declared dead. The doctors declare a person is death only when the heart stops to function. Similarly, the Outer Body is controlled by the Soul. Till the person is alive, the Soul tries to preserve the physical body in good condition. Whenever a person is drained physically, emotionally and spiritually, the Soul sends healing energy to the physical body to make the her / him energetic.
When an individual is alive, from the Biblical and from other scriptures, (“Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well.” - Ecclesiastes 12:6), we get to know that these two bodies are connected by a thin cord of silver. During the time of crisis, like accidents, the Soul leaves the physical body temporarily, while maintaining the connectivity to the physical body to alert other Souls, so that the physical body gets required attention immediately. When a person dies, the Soul leaves the physical body permanently along with the Outer Body.
There is myth among the people that this subject of Universal Life Energy belongs to the occult and ungodly. What is expressed in the Bible can’t be ungodly. The following are the verses that deal with the existence of two bodies:
“ …. There is natural body, and there is a spiritual body."
– 1 Corinthians 15:44”
In Mark 5: 21-43, we get to know the following:
While, Jesus was rushing to Jairus’ house to restore his daughter, a woman, who had bleeding problem for twelve years, was among the multitude. She touched the garment of Jesus from behind to get the cure. Her FAITH didn’t fail her. She got instant healing. But Jesus got alerted; and knowing that ‘power had gone out of Him’ Jesus asked the multitude: “Who touched My clothes?” (verse 30)
In the Bible, we read that God created human beings in the likeness of God (Genesis 5:1). Hence, the same power that gone out of Jesus is present in every human being. Universal Life Energy is nothing but the same power that gone out of Jesus, when the woman with the bleeding problem came in contact with the aura of Jesus Christ, by touching His garment.
After reaching Jaipur, swamiji was able to talk to his mother on 5th June 1994 and was happy to know that his father was recovering fast. After fifteen days of
, when he visited Thirunelvelli during the last week of June 1994, he was happy to see his father back to normal life.
Later swamiji had the advanced initiation in Universal Life Energy by the same Master on 22nd January 1995, few months before his Road Traffic Accident (RTA).
It is worth mentioning here that swamiji had earlier attended “Creativity and Dream Workshop” from 13th to 18th September, 1993 conducted by Dr Francis Menezes, Director of TATA Management Training Centre, Pune. This training exposed him to “Dream Incubation” and ‘Dream Interpretation’ to find out creative solution to the problems through dreams, in addition to getting trained on ‘Breath Therapy’, by Maa Dwari of Diamond Breath International Breath Energy School, Germany.
When scientists were struggling to draw the organic structure for Benzene, the dream of Friedrich August Kekule, a prominent German organic chemist inspired the breakthrough. August Kekulé insightfully dreamed of the structure of the Benzene molecule which, unlike other known organic compounds, had a circular structure rather than a linear one. He discovered the ring shape of the Benzene molecule after having a reverie of a snake seizing its own tail - a common ancient symbol known as the ouroboros.
In addition to God's intervention, the Self Healing that swamiji had given himself for 21 days at every stages of initiation of the Universal Life Energy and the exposure to Dream laboratory must have facilitated his mystical experiences during the hospitalization, immediately after by RTA.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible." - Hebrews 11:1-3
