Sages of the New Covenant
“He said, "Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, shall make Myself known to him in a vision. I shall speak with him in a dream.”
– Numbers 12:6
Swami Sthevananda’s name was in the top of the Critical patients list for three days. During the day time, Mr Joe J Kenneth, his former colleague was in MIOT, Vijaya Hospital to run around with the prescription to get medicines from the pharmacy and Lt. Col. Kadir Batcha, then Chief Manager Administration andSecurity of GEC Alsthom had arranged a security guard to do the same job at night. Everyday Swamiji’s cousin Mr K Karunakran was sending his son Mr Solomon to assist Swamiji in the hospital.
At the Accident Emergency Service (AES) ward, no one was allowed to enter and interact with Swamiji. … it was a total isolation. What he could hear at the most was the groaning of some fellow patients in pain and if a temporary screen was placed besides his bed, it was an indication that the patient next to him had died.
During initial days in the hospital, physicians administered painkillers, which must have made others to assume that swamiji was sleeping. But what he felt was that he wasn’t having restful sleep. Thanks to Dr P V A Mohandas the Managing Director of MIOT, he had trained all the medical and para-medical staff to be very courteous to the patients.
On 19th May 1995 a young hospital nurse, Ms Shirley wished swamiji “Good NIGHT” while leaving for home at the end of her shift. This made swamiji jubilant.
Swamiji immediately gestured to her to come closer and said: “Sister, I have not been able to sleep for nearly two days. Today you have said Good Night. If I sleep tonight, do you mind saying good night every day till I am in this AES ward?”
“But, Sir, I saw you sleeping”: replied the nurse.
“I see lot of graphics (like the computer screen savers like ‘Mystify’ and ‘Beziers’) running in my mind and therefore I am not able to sleep. So I am not relaxed. Yesterday you didn’t say Good Night, but today you have said Good Night. So if I get a restful sleep, please assure me to say Good Night everyday till I am in this ICU.” was swamiji’s response.
She said: “Sir, I will” and left for home. Her assurance gave Swamiji immense hope to believe that he would have good restful sleep that night.
As swamiji closed his eyes …
Oh gosh! … Again .. The similar … The graphics started rolling in swamiji’s mind. All through the two days the graphics would go blank and he found this weird.
But this time,
It did not go blank .... instead it turned into a window of a house. It appeared that swamiji was inside a room and outside was faintly dark. But he could see through the window.
As swamiji looked out of the window …
Swamiji saw Sadguru Sat-cid-ananda's (Lord Jesus Christ) face with the thorn crown around His head, looking at hims.
For a moment,
No talk .. Only silence prevailed.
Swamiji touched his forehead. He could feel the bandage around his head. Jesus Christ did not speak anything. But within swamiji, he experienced a feeling of Jesus Christ telling him: “Sonny, see My forehead. I shall heal you too”.
With that vision of Sanatan Guru Satcidananda (Jesus Christ) swamiji could peacefully close his eyes and had a relaxing sleep after four days. After this experience, his recovery was faster; and on 25th May, 1995, he was shifted from the AES ward to a Special room. The physicians stopped administering antibiotic to him and he was on antibacterial medicines for another three days. Later, he required only vitamins and nutritional drinks for his recovery.
In the Bible we read of Sadguru Saccidananda healing several people. One such event is the following one:
“Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.”
– Matthew 8: 14 & 15
Sanatan Guru Saccidananda (Jesus Christ) healed swamiji in the similar manner He had healed many people during His life time on Earth. The same Sad Guru Saccidananda could heal you as well, while you seek proper medical advice.
Neither the Vision of God Experience Is Restricted to Me Alone, Nor the Divine Mercy is Restricted to St Faustina Kowalska. YOU TOO CAN ....
