Miracle Story - Lord Shiva

Original is here
In 1879, when there was British Rule in India, Lt. Col. Martin of Agar Malva was leading the army in the war against Afghanistan.

Col. Martin used to regularly send messages of his well-being to his wife. The war continued for long & Lady Martin stopped getting messages. She was very upset.

Once riding on her horse, she passed by the temple of Baijnath Mahadev. She was attracted to the sound of Conch & Mantra. She went inside & came to know that the Brahmans were worshipping Lord Shiva. They saw her sad face & asked her problem. She explained everything to them. They told her that Lord Shiva listens to the prayers of devotees & takes them out of difficult situations in no time.

With the advice of the Brahmans, she started the "Laghu-rudri Anushtthan" of the Mantra: "Om Namah Shivaya" for 11 days. She prayed to Lord Shiva that if her husband reaches home safely, then she would get the temple renovated.

On the last of the "Laghu-rudri", a messenger came & gave a letter to her. Her husband had written: "I was regularly sending messages to you from the battle grounds, but suddenly the Pathans surrounded us from all sides. We were entrapped in a situation where there was no scope of escaping death. Suddenly, I saw a Yogi of India with long hair, carrying a weapon with three pointers (Trishul). His personality was amazing & he was maneuvering his weapon with a magnificent style. Seeing this great man, the Pathans started running back. With his grace, our bad times turned into moments of victory. This was possible only because of that man of India wearing a lion skin & carrying a three-pointer weapon (Trishul). That great Yogi told me that I should not worry & that he had come to rescue me because he was very pleased with my wife's prayers"

Tears of joy were falling down the eyes of Lady Martin's eyes while reading the letter. Her heart was overwhelmed. She fell into the feet of Lord Shiva's statue & burst in tears.

After a few weeks, Col. Martin returned. Lady Martin narrated the whole incident to him. Now both husband & wife became devotees of Lord Shiva. In 1883, they donated Rs. 15,000/- for renovating the temple. The information engraved slab for the same is still there in the Baijnath Mahadev Temple of Agar Malva. This is the only Hindu temple built by British.

When Lady Martin left for Europe, she said that they would make Shiva Temple at their home & pray to Him till the end of life. The same Supreme Power is present in Lord Shiva, Lord Krishna, Mother Durga & Self-Realized Sadguru. One only needs strong faith. Prahlad, Dhruva, Aaruni, Upmanyu & several others could attain that which appeared impossible to others. Even today, devotees are getting this kind of help from God & Self-Realized saints. It is strong faith alone that makes it possible.

    1. My Dear friend,
      U must know the reason for which you cried.That was your happiness, however do U know the fact that in this material world there is nothing permenent everything is temporary just becoz God has sent us not to look after our happiness.We all have to retire from this world one day so try to understand that our happiness lies in seeing others happy, SELFLESSLY giving food to the hungry, SELFLESSLY loving everyone equally like you love your Lord and his Family.First try to change yourself by trying to treat everyone like U treat urself.Then U would know that those are the true prayers which will help U in this world and when you go to the abode of Lord Kailash .....Then i am sure you would know the true power of everlasting Love.....

  30. Super incident. I have great faith in Lord Shiva and he seems like a father figure to me taking care of my life. His calmness makes me calm and I turn to him for his advice. Although he doesn't talk to me , he shows me the path in some way or the other.

Welcome to the spirituality blog






This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!

Your comments (encouragement/ otherwise) are certainly welcome.Thanks for visiting. If you like it, Subscribe to my blog (click here):Posts (Atom).
