A cousin of Mahamateshwari, Sandhooro by name, who lived in Jabalpur, had intense faith in Shri Nathji. She had years ago narrated an incident in which Shri Nathji had saved their family from a great calamity.
Her daughter was to be married in Calcutta. Preparations had been made for the marriage, invitation cards had been sent out by both the parties. The date for the baaraat had been fixed.
One day before they were to leave for Calcutta, the younger daughter of Sandhooro had a sudden attack of paralysis. The family were stricken with horror. They could not take the girl with them in that state, nor could they leave her behind.
The marriage of the elder girl stood in danger of being disrupted. That night Sandhooro placed the paralysed girl beneath a portrait of Shri Nathji, and prayed and prayed to Shri Nathji to cure her.
To the astonishment of the entire family, the girl was walking freely in the morning. The paralysis had disappeared. Truly, Shri Nathji was bhakt-vatsal. He looked after his devotees.
Perhaps a prayer to an invisible God would have yielded the same result. But faith in an invisible God would not have carried the same conviction as faith in a living God. Shri Nathji was very real, and in human form, and what was more, he heard his devotees’ prayers. The relatives of Shri Nathji rejoiced in the double relationship that they had with him.
