I, Mangalaram Sharma, had the great fortune of receiving the
Sanjeevani mantra initiation from respected Gurudev on 9 July 1992 in Bikaner. After that I
have had many divine experiences, which are impossible for me to describe in words. But I
would like to mention a few which have got imprinted on my mind.
One day after meditation, I fell asleep. In my sleep I felt
my body tighten and I heard a loud voice from within saying, “I am taking
you to Mahakal.” I have always been very scared of death. I used to get
goosebumps just by hearing the word ‘death’. After sometime a subtle body
came out of my body and started wandering in the dense darkness of the sky.
When I looked back in that fearful state, Gurudev was coming behind me. This
gave me courage.
Then ‘Mahakal’ appeared having matted hair and long beard.
That fiery form of Mahakal, changed into the form of Gurudev. By the
wonderful vision of Gururdev’s divine form full of ultimate opulence, my
fear of death disappeared forever.
A few days later, I
got a chance to read the Gita, in which Lord Krishna says that to destroy
the wicked, he appears on earth in every era. This confirmed my belief
that Gurudev is the incarnation of God who has appeared to
destroy the men with evil tendencies.
Another strange incident happened in my life. History
testifies that Meera was not affected by poison. When her husband gave the
cup of poison, Meera drank it with full trust in Lord Krishna, the poison
turned into nectar, Meera became more devoted than before. A similar
incident happened in my mother’s life.
My father's mental state was not well. He used to say to my
mother that he will kill her. One day he went to a shop that made iron
bangles at Balesar station. From there, he picked up iron filings and
secretly mixed it with some food items bought from the market. On coming
home, he gave it to my mother to eat.
When my mother tried to share it with children, my father
refused to share it. He said that it was brought only for her. My mother
became doubtful so she prayed before the picture of Gurudev, “O Gurudev, I
do not know anything. You please protect me.” And she ate it, but there was
no reaction in her body, rather there was more energy than before. Seeing
this situation, my father became more agitated.
After a few days, he grinded the glass pices finely and
mixed it with sugar and gave it to my mother to drink. But my mother
remained healthy even after drinking it. No symptoms of any disease. He was
shocked. He wondered at what had happened? Mother had complete confidence in
Gurudev's picture. One day my father told me that I gave iron and glass
sawdust to kill your mother but she is still alive. I said that this is due
to the blessings and
protection of my revered Gurudev Shri Ramlalji Siyag.
I said to my father, "If you meditate after taking
initiation from my Gurudev,
then you will be freed from addiction to opium." I told him the method of
meditation, he started meditating on Gurudev. On the seventh day my father
said, “Something has gone wrong with me. When I take opium, I vomit and if I
do not take it, then the mind remains calm. I said that by the grace of
Gurudev you have been freed from addiction to opium.
