Mr. M.L.Narasimhulu,
Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital,
Prasanthi Nilayam.

      Mr. M.L.Narasimhulu, an ardent devotee of Bhagavan, has come to stay at Puttaparthi and work in Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital. He records a few of his experiences in an article published in Arogyapradayini, the Golden Jubilee publication of Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital, Prasanthi Nilayam released in August 2006.

'In December 2002, an Australian gentleman, Mr. Ian Smith, aged 43 years and a devotee of Bhagavan Baba, came to our surgical outpatient for consultation. His right elbow had been frozen for 23 years. As such, he was unable to extend and flex his right elbow fully. He had consulted several orthopaedic surgeons, but he did not find any improvement.

Mr. Smith was going home after consultation. It was ten in the morning. He happened to meet Sri Vidyasagar, an assistant in our surgical outpatient section. Vidyasagar offered him a pinch of Swami's vibhuti, given by Bhagavan, from a packet that he carried. Mr. Smith stretched his left hand to collect the vibhuti, as his right elbow was frozen. Vidyasagar was reluctant to put the vibhuti in his left hand, because it is considered inauspicious. Hence, he asked Mr. Smith to stretch his right hand. Mr. Smith explained that his right elbow was frozen and expressed his inability to stretch his right hand. Vidyasagar insisted that he stretch his right hand only to the extent possible, and collect the sacred ash. Mr. Smith did as told. With much difficulty he put it in his mouth. Half of it fell in his mouth and the rest spilt on his body.

Mr. Smith went back to his room for rest. At about 1 p.m., he got up to ready himself for afternoon darshan. He went to the washbasin to wash his face. As usual, he splashed a handful of water on his face, with his right hand. Surprisingly, he found his right palm touching his face. He also could touch his head, neck, etc. with his right hand. He tried time and again and found his frozen right elbow was released, and now he was well after 23 years of suffering. His joy knew no bounds. He came back to the surgical outpatient and with joy, thanked every staff member there; especially Vidyasagar, who had offered him the miraculous vibhuti that morning. Vidyasagar then said that the vibhuti was from Bhagavan's hands and, therefore, we must thank and express our gratitude to Bhagavan alone. Everyone, including Mr. Smith, expressed their pranams and gratitude to Bhagavan for his miraculous vibhuti and its instant cure.

Mrs. Saraswathi, aged 53 years, was suffering from osteoarthritis of both knees. Her pain was so bad that she was in bed for two months. She was even admitted to the General Hospital. Though she had the best available treatment, her progress was minimal. She could not go independently to the bathroom.

One day, Dr. Kamala gave her a packet of vibhuti and advised her to take a little of it everyday, along with her regular medicines. Mrs. Saraswathi was discharged the next day. For the next 20 days, she scrupulously took both medicines and vibhuti, but her improvement was minimal. One day, Bhagavan appeared in her dream and advised her to stop all medicines but continue to take vibhuti only. She implicitly obeyed Bhagavan's advice, regularly taking it by mouth as well externally applying it on both knees. For about a month, the progress was minimal. Then day by day, she started improving. By October 2001, she became completely well and could even walk independently up to a kilometre. Her only medicine was vibhuti! She not only recovered fully, but also prayed to Bhagavan to permit her to do seva in the Hospital. With His blessings, she was permitted to do the same. Swami's vibhuti is the best medicine, and faith in Bhagavan the best protector.'
