During his pilgrimage Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb reached Haridwar.
He felt divine peace within, by letting the sacred river Ganga touch his lotus feet.
(Ma Ganga is gifted with a divine boon, that when the people will take bath in the pious water of Ganga, and get mukti from their sins, by offering them to her, she will get those sins destroyed by touching the feet of Great saints and Mahatmas).
All the needy and poor people praised Sant Satramdas Saheb for helping them, and thanked him for his blessings. Every one ate prasad and nobody left, without eating prasad and empty handed. In the Evening Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb sat among his devotees , at a beautiful place, and graced it with the pious divine beauty of his presence.
He worshiped, chanted the name of beloved lord, and did meditation. In the night he went to worship at the bank of the sacred river Ganga, with some of his loving devotees.While Sant Satramdas was blessing the people around him, he heard some sorrowful voices of a child and his mother.
Sant Sai Satram das Saheb sent Bhai Seetal das and Ramdev to go and ask the mother and the child, the reason of their grief during the beautiful moments of Amrit vella , and if they required anything, their requirement could
be fulfilled, and he also asked his devotees, to go and bring the mother and child to him, so that he could help them. Bhai Seetal das and Ramdev knocked at the door of the house of that lady, and when the lady opened the door, they asked the reason that, why she and her son were crying, and also told her that, they were sent by Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb to her.
The lady on hearing this, got scared, and started shivering, and got very upset. She told Bhai Seetal and Ramdev to go back, and said, that she was sorry, that due to their moaning loudly, Sant Sai Satramdas got disturbed, and also said, that she will take care, that this should not happen again. She told them that the reason, of her sorrow was, that her family had committed a sin, by disturbing a sant while he was meditating . She said that she did not want to lose her only, dear son, who was small and hungry, by the curse of a great sant. But on hearing, that Sant Satram Das Saheb wanted to meet her and bless her, she went to Sant Satram Das Sahib, touched his feet and started crying and asked him to forgive her, for disturbing him while he was meditating. Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb blessed her and asked her to tell him her story.The lady told Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb, that she had a very nice happy family but one day, her husband, who was an egoistic man, abused a saint who was meditating, she told Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb, that her husband kept speaking, bad about that sant who was meditating, and even after some other sants tried to stop him, he did not stop, and kept abusing the sant.
After his meditation, when the Sant got up, he cursed her husband, that the way he had troubled him, he and his family also, will face troubles and difficulties in their life, and after cursing them, he left.
That was the day, their difficult times started, and then after that, they became so poor, that they had no food to eat, her husband could not face these difficulties, and left home, and then she started going to the
jungle to collect wood and cow dung, to sell, to earn, but that earning was not sufficient for them to get a day’s food properly.
She told Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb that, one day when she went to collect wood from jungle, her son also was with her, and he saw a rich man’s son, who was wearing a gold chain, and after seeing that child wearing a gold chain, her son started crying and demanded that, he even wanted to wear that chain,, she said that she tried to explain to him, that since they were very poor they could not afford such an expensive gold chain, but her son was not listening and stopped eating food and also got fever, and all the time he kept crying and demanding a gold chain. She requested Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib to forgive her and her son, as they disturbed him, while he was meditating.
Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb, very kindly blessed the lady by covering her head with a shawl as a blessing. Saijan told her, that her days of difficulties were over, and her days of happiness and prosperity had arrived. Saijan asked one of his devotees, Bhai Rano mal, to go to the market to a goldsmith, and get one gold chain for the child.
Bhai Karmon mal, who was also Sant Satramdas Saheb’s devotee, and had recently got his son married, was also present, at that time. He told Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb, that he already had bought a gold chain for Saijan, as an offering at his lotus feet, and was thinking of requesting Saijan to bless his newly married son with a child.
He requested Sant Sai Satram Das Saheb to give that gold chain to the little boy.
Sant Sai Satram Das Saheb blessed bhai Karmon mal, by saying that since, he was the reason, for bringing happiness, to the child, God will bring happiness to his family, and very soon his house will be filled with a child’s , innocent Squealing and giggling sounds, and his house will be filled with happiness.
At that time , the Sant who had cursed the mother and her family appeared, and did pranam to Sant Satram Das Saheb. He told Sai Satramdas Sahib, that while he was meditating, he had a vision that a highly revered Mahatma, having great spiritual powers had arrived, to change his curse into a blessing. He told Saijan that initially got upset and angry, but after he went into deep meditation, he realised that the one who had the power of changing a curse, given by him, into a blessing, must be a great Sant. Such a great Sant can eliminate the sins, committed through many years and give Moksha to the one who has been blessed by him. That was the reason he also came to be blessed by Sant Satramdas Sahib.
Sant Satramdas Saheb blessed him, and asked him not to hurt anyone ever again, and lovingly hugged him. He also assured him that he will get Moksha in this birth itself.
After giving toys to the child and prasad to the mother, Sant Sai Satramdas saheb blessed them, and said, that now they will prosper and even the child’s father will come back home, very soon.
At that very special moment when the child, started dancing happily, and the mother ate prasad, the waves of the Sacred Ganga started moving and from the pious waves mata Ganga in a human Devi form appeared, and after doing pranam to sant Sai Satram Das Saheb, she said, that people come there,to take a holy dip, to get their sins washed away, but she was so fortunate to have the divine darshan of such a great Sant who could relieve her from the sins of others , she was carrying. Ganga touched the lotus feet of Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib.
Sant Satram Das Saheb said, that he himself had come, to have her divine darshan. Mata Ganga replied, that it was his greatness that he came to bless her, and she was so fortunate, for having him at her place.
Sant Sai Satram das Saheb invited Mata Ganga to come to the holy place of Raharki Sahib and bless the people. Mata Ganga said, that she will be honored, to bless people of a place where such a great sant resides.
Sant Sai Satram das Sahib blessed Mata Ganga, and asked her, to appear at Sant Satram Dham after he leaves his Human form, to merge with the Lord Almighty. After Sant Sai Satramdas Saheb left his mortal body, Ganga jal was required to purify the place, where Saijan’s samadhi was going to be built. Sant Sai Kanwarram Sahib, a true disciple of Sant Satram Das saheb said, that Ganga always accompanied Sant Satramdas Saheb, and always flowed inside his heart. Sant Kanwarram Sahib Prayed for Sacred river Ganga’s divine appearance .
At Sai Kanwaram Sahib prayed for Maa Ganga’s appearance, a milky white wave of Ganga, miraculously, appeared at Sant Satram Dham to purify the Samadhi Sahib of Sant Satramdas Sahib, and thus, Maa Ganga kept her promise, she had made with Shehenshah Satguru Sai Satramdas Sahib.
Maa Ganga, by the name of keerti Ganga, or Satram sarovar, is blessing the people, who come to Satram Dham. Those who with honest intentions take a holy dip, into Satram Sarovar, gets their sins destroyed, and attain Moksha.
