For a long time, I had been earnestly looking for a guru or spiritual guide to extricate me from my troubled life. Though my business was doing fine, my life seemed listless and aimless and I suffered from many emotional weaknesses.
One day a client talked to me about how Guruji's blessings had healed his mother of a very serious illness. From the moment he began narrating his experience, I knew I had got the call I was waiting for. I requested him to take me to Guruji's ashram at Chattarpur. It was the middle of year 2010.
As soon as I entered Guruji's Mandir, I was overcome by its clean, healing and healthy atmosphere. It began to change my feelings, thought processes and, consequently, way of life. The focus of my attention changed and I started to feel fulfillment in life. People around my life changed, too.
Another blessing came my way soon. Two of my children, a son and a daughter, were of marriageable age. I prayed at the Mandir for suitable matches for both. Quickly, with the blessings of our divine Guruji, I found a nice and sweet girl for my son. Her temperament, education, and family background were all that we could have wished for. My son got married to her and I found myself blessed with a jewel of a daughter-in-law. I wish to care, love and protect her as much as her real father. I am sure that Guruji's blessings will help me find an equally suitable match for my daughter as well.
I am sure that Guruji's divine blessings will keep lighting up the way of my life and following Him would help me take right decisions and make my life more beautiful. Thank you, Guruji, for all your blessings: for showing the right way in life and for empowering me to take those right decisions that have made my life more satisfying. Thanks a zillion, Guruji!
I would suggest that devotees first become good persons - as Guruji definitely wants them to. Next, they must surrender themselves totally to Guruji's bidding. They will then experience beneficial and happy course corrections in their life.

Faith bears healthy twins
Guruji's blessings have smoothened the journey of our lives and sustained the family through difficult times. One such trying phase occurred when my daughter-in-law was pregnant in year 2016.
A joyous feeling spread through the entire family when we got to know, but it was short lived. The day after she gave us the news, my daughter-in-law suffered acute pain in the right side of the stomach. At the hospital, the head of the department of gynaecology did multiple ultrasounds. An ectopic pregnancy*
was suspected, which is life threatening for the mother and the foetus. The doctors at the hospital advised us to terminate the pregnancy sooner rather than later. My son and daughter-in-law, a dentist herself, decided to consult a few eminent medical experts. The family was with her all the way. It meant many more rounds of tests and ultrasounds. None of the doctors was encouraging as an ectopic pregnancy rarely leads to birth. Meanwhile, through it all, my daughter-in-law suffered excruciating pain.
We wanted to stop that. I prayed and prayed to Guruji to bless my children and managed to bring my daughter-in-law to Guruji's ashram to pray herself and partake of the prasad
After that visit, a radiological exam showed a tiny foetal sac where a normal pregnancy could proceed. We regained hope. We learnt that our daughter-in-law was bearing identical twins, with the twins sharing a placenta but having separate amniotic sacs**
. This was a dangerous situation. In addition to the normal risks associated with a twin pregnancy, a shared placenta increases the odds, such as of the twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, which causes the blood supply of one twin to be diverted at the cost of the other.
The health of our daughter-in-law was also worrisome. She was not able to retain water leave alone eat solid food. She had severe nausea, vomiting and constant abdominal pain. Her gynaecologist monitored her closely from the first trimester and ordered frequent ultrasounds. Miraculously, each time the gynaecologist would say "so far so good" as the imaging began showing positive outcomes. Our faith in Guruji was paying dividends.
The greatest moment of happiness came when my daughter-in-law gave birth to two baby angels. The infants are in good health and so is my daughter-in-law who showed much courage and forbearance.
When I compare the early finding of an ectopic pregnancy with the later safe birth of the healthy twins, I am convinced that it was Guruji's blessings that did it all. Thank you, Guruji, for pulling us out of trouble and giving us two wonderful baby girls, who have brought tremendous vibrancy and happiness to the family.
