|Instant response to yearning prayer|
|from the chapter - Repository of Infinite Divine Powers|
As he narrated all this, he bitterly cried like a child in the holy memory of the supreme saviour, the true Lord of life and death. Many persons had meanwhile collected there and father consoled Balwant Singh with the warmth and affection of a father.
Draupadi had made a distress call to Lord Krishna in her miserable plight in the court of Duryodhan and was saved. Makhan Shah Lubana made a similar distress call on Sri Guru Nanak Sahib when his ship loaded with valuables was in danger of imminent disaster on the vast seas. Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib rescued the ship and saved Makhan Shah Lubana.
Such a distress call for rescue emanated from the core of Balwant Singh 's heart. How wonderful, unique and mysterious are the ways in which the Lord reaches out to His devotees at their hour of dire need.
This direct experience of Balwant Singh reveals how wonderful and miraculous is mere remembrance of Holy Baba Nand Singh Ji Maharaj.
Just a mere thought of His Holy name saves a drowning man, liberates a dying person, rescues and elevates a sinking soul. Mere remembrance of His Holy name is so purifying, so uplifting and so liberating in its effect. Such is the powerful impact of the purity of His name and incarnation.
Any prayer made to Him from the heart was instantly heard by Him thousands of miles away. Any prayer directed to Him even after His physical disappearance was and is instantly responded.
How wonderful and reassuring is the evidence of His Eternal Existence and Eternal presence, derived from such soul-stirring experiences. Mysterious and subtle are the ways in which Mahan Babaji reaches out to His devotees all over the globe even now. i.e. forty eight years after His seeming physical disappearance from the world scene. This more than anything else highlights HIS ETERNAL GLORY.
This incident also proves beyond doubt that His spiritual force permeates the whole universe.
