The Sadguru’s beneficence can work Miracles inscrutable to Human Logic, Knowledge, and Capacity
Shri. Nanacharya, the caretaker of Rama's temple at Jalna, fell ill. He began to suffer from persistent low fever. ShriMaharaj, when he learnt of this, called him over. A well - known physician was brought to examine him. The physician declared that the second stage of tuberculosis was about to begin, but with timely medication and rest, he would recover. ShriMaharaj said to Nanacharya, "People say that you are ill. So, to improve your health, go to Karhad and stay in our temple of Rama. Live on food begged as a madhukari* and observe upasana** the rest of the day. Keep me posted every month with the change in your health." Nanacharya went to Karhad and began spending his days as instructed. His health began to improve, and after eight months it was fully restored to normalcy. Nanacharya returned. The physician was invited to partake of Prasad, and Nanacharya's seat was placed next to his. The physician did not, at first, even recognize him. After the meal, he was asked thoroughly to examine him, and finding his health faultless, the physician said, 'If he recovered it is only because of the grace of God. Medical science has no answer here.' About how he recovered, Nanacharya said, "I used to obtain food by seeking alms in Karhad. I used to divide the food thus obtained into three portions : one for God, one for the cow, and the remainder for myself. I used to sustain my-self by eating only that. The food I used to eat tasted like nectar. As I continued, I began to get better and better. I almost wish I should fall ill again, so that I might again have the food of that nectar-like taste. There is no doubt that I owe that taste, as well as my recovery from the disease, to ShriMaharaja's beneficence."
