Shri Nathji continued to shower his divine grace upon the people of Nagpur despite the strains and turbulent atmosphere of 1979. The flow of his divine nectar continued to flow out as freely and as generously before. Any other person in his place would have been shattered from the ghastly experience that he had been through. But Shri Nathji showed not a trace of worry or perturbation despite the violent episode that had disrupted his peaceful life.
The divine light of Shri Nathji shone brighter than ever before even as he prepared to celebrate the birthday of Shri Babaji Bhagwan on January 21, 1979.
Shri Bhutt had observed: “Whenever Shri Nathji is attacked by any illness or foe or any adverse circumstances, his Light Divine shines out more brilliantly than ever before!”
There was Shri Nathji’s verse:

“Vaar to ochhaa parraa thhaa, gir parre ham aap se
Kaatil ke dil ko koyi ham se barrhaanaa seekh le

The blow went amiss, but I fell of my own,
Let people learn from me, how to please an assassin’s heart!”

Indeed, whatever had happened was in the final analysis a measure of the Divine Will. Shri Nathji could have vanquished his foes, or not let them attack him at all, but it had to be done in fulfilment of a divine drama.
Shri Nathji had often said:

“Ramji chaahate to Ravana ko ghar baithhe maar dete, magar phir Ramayana naa banti!

“Ramji could have destroyed Ravana while sitting at home, but then the Ramayana would not have been made.”

The Ramayana had been made so that a large number of persons, like Kewat, could be given the chance to serve Lord Rama, so that they could be granted salvation.
In a like manner, Shri Nathji allowed this calamity to hit his home so that many persons would be granted salvation when they came to serve him as part of the divine drama, the leela of Shri Nathji.
When some errant officers of the government came to visit him and sought his blessings he said to them:

“Blessings ke liye receptivity bhee honi chaaiye!

“In order to receive blessings there must be receptivity!”

Shri Nathji would also say to all those performing public duties:

“Honour and disgrace from no condition rise,
Act well your part, there all the honour lies!”

Shri Nathji had frequently said:
“The mind of a foe may go against me, but his heart can never go against me. I never wish ill upon anyone, but the spiritual law must do its work:

Az mafaakaate amal gaafil mashau
Gandam az gandam baroyad jau za jau

Be not ignorant of the fruits of Karma,
If thou sow wheat thou shall reap wheat, and if barley, then barley

And yet in another refrain Shri Nathji would say:

You must reap what you sow they say,
And every cause must bring its sure effect,
Good, good, and bad, bad,
And none escape the law!

And there was his Persian Verse that showed how the torment inflicted by any person would recoil upon that same person with time:

Dauraane bakaa choon baade saiharaa biguzasht
Talkheeyo khusheeyo zebo zisht biguzasht

The time of life passed away like the morning breeze,
The good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly all passed away

Pindaasht sitamgar ke jafaa bar maa kard
Bar gardane oo bamaand va bar maa biguzasht

Remember O Tormentor! that the pain thou didst inflict upon me,
Has fallen around thy own neck, and has passed over my head
