Sant Satramdas Saheb visited the city of Mithi On the invitation of the people and the Panchayat of the city.After blessing everyone with his divine satsang, Saijan went to take rest. Some devotees were given the duty to remain present outside the room, where Sant Satramdas Saheb was taking rest so that, no one can disturb him.
while the devotees were discussing about the divine Satsang of Sant Satramdas Sahib, and were enjoying the divine bliss during the conversation, about the teachings of Sant Satramdas Sahib, they saw, a poisonous snake, entering the room of Sant Satramdas Sahib, through the window. The devotees got scared, and before they could take any action the snake had already entered the room. Allthe devotees, who saw the snake entering Shehensha Sai Satramdas’s sahib’s room got panicked, and they felt helpless and did not know what to do.
They all knew that that Sant Satramdas Sahib was all alone inside the room, and since they had no other option, they peeped through the window and were astonished to see that Sant Satramdas Sahib was not taking rest, but he was in deep meditation, and the snake after taking rounds around sant Satramdas Sahib’s bed, quietly sat near his bed.
when Sant Satramdas Sahib opened his eyes, he looked at the snake and smiled. All the devotees who were sitting outside of the room, went inside the room, and tried to pick up the snake, but the snake did not move, and remained where it was.
Shehenshah Satguru Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib told the devotees, not to catch the poor creature. The devotees said, that, since it was a poisonous snake they cannot leave him free.
Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib said ” Now this snake has became a realised soul, and has become quiet and peaceful, through the eternal joy and the divine bliss he has got, deep within him, by sitting before me while I was meditating. Now this snake, has become calm and peaceful, and it is no more violent, so let it stay there.”
The people, of the city of Mithi, were surprised to listen to what Shehensha Satguru Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib told them, and requested him to explain, the power of inner peace and calmness.
Shehenshah Satguru Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib narrated an inspiring story to the people of Mithhi. Sai Satramdas Sahib Said, that once, some sadhus went for a pilgrimage, and one day, while travelling in the afternoon, they halted in a village. It was very hot, and no one from that village knew them, they decided to take rest under a tree till evening. while the sadhus were taking rest, a lady, who was passing from there, saw them and asked them, that why they were sitting there? The sadhus told her, that they were going for a pilgrimage, and were taking rest under that tree, as it was very hot. The lady very kindly invited them to her house to take proper rest.
The Sadhus happily accepted her invitation, and went to her house. After serving them food, the lady served them lassi. Sadhus after drinking lassi and taking rest for sometime left from her house.
After the sadhus left, the lady picked up the container of lassi, and was shocked to see a dead poisonous lizard lying inside. She got very upset and did not know what to do, as the Sadhus had already left.
After that incident, everyday the lady prayed to God for the good health of the sadhus.
On the return journey the sadhus once again went to that lady’s house and the lady was surprised to see them in good health.
She repeatedly asked them, if they were feeling good during their journey. the sadhus told her that they were in good health, but since the lady kept on asking them again and again, about their health, one of the sadhus asked her, that why, repeatedly she was asking this question to them.
The lady told them, that when they left from her house she found a dead poisonous lizard in the jar of lassi, she had served them. On hearing about the dead lizard in the jar of lassi, all of them started feeling dizzy, started vomiting and also started complaining of stomach ache.
Sant Sai Satramdas sahib said, that till the sadhus were in the divine inner peace, and traveled peacefully with inner joy, they were in good health, but the moment their inner peace got disturbed, worry and anxiousness over powered their inner peace, the fear and worry started spreading within their nerves, and they started feeling uneasy and suffered in pain.
Sant satramdas Sahib Said, that peace and calmness, are so effective and powerful, that they can eradicate the harmful effect of poison also, and no sorrow can attack a person, who is calm and peaceful at heart.
Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib said, that the snake came inside his room, while he was meditating, so the divine bliss and peace of that auspicious moment, brought a change in the behavior of snake, and very soon with the grace of the Lord the snake will attain moksha.
After listening to such an inspiring story the people of Mithi requested Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib to bless them, with Naam daan, so that they also can attain peace and true happiness.
when Shehenshah Satguru Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib started leaving from Mithi, the snake also accompanied him to Raharki Sahib and lived there.
Whenever Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib blessed people with his beautiful Satsang, the snake would come and sit with the other devotees, and after the satsang, it would go back to the place Saijan, had given it to live.
The devotees at Raharki Saheb would take care of the snake and the snake spent its remaining life in peace and calmness and attained Moksha.
