Chapter 28- Banaganapalle Villagers Become Followers of Swami

Brahmananda Reddy after worshipping Swami’s feet said, “Swami! By your grace I am able to see now. If you permit, I would like to go out and visit my childhood friends and other known villagers”.

To his ask, Veerapayya Charya replied, “Son! You may very well go out. But remember that you may come across many people on the way. People who knew you as blind man would look at you with utmost curiosity. The combined force of sight (Drishti) is potent of blasting even a rock; you are just a human being. But no worries! You are under my protection so you wouldn’t be harmed but i suggest you to smear this Vibhooti (Sacred Ash) whenever you happen to go out. Don’t forget this”.

(My comments:-This fact is true what Swami said. Eye sight when focused generates a particular kind of waves which may act on distant objects potently. The art of psycho-kinesis /Telekinesis is a concept of ‘Mind over matter’. Many people who exhibit this can bend metal objects mere by their sight. Levitation, psi-balls, etc are all a part of these psychic strengths. That’s why in India it has been a tradition to smear Vibhooti or Tilak on the forehead. Vibhooti is such a sacred ash that it absorbs the waves of sight and protects the humans from Ku-Drishti (bad sighted people).

Brahmanada Reddy saluted swami and moved out to the village to meet his friends. On the way some servants of Nawab of Banaganapalle village who knew him saw him and felt very much surprised. They flocked around Brahmananda Reddy and asked, “Hey! You were a blind man. How did you get your sight? Which doctor cured you?”

To their questions he replied, “I have not consulted any doctor. It was all my past life’s good deads that a Swami visited our place and stays in the Mutt built by my mother. My mother approached him and shared her pain about my blindness and he being a divine incarnation of that Parameshwara, he simply put his hand on my head and I started seeing the world. I couldn’t control my happiness and fell on his feet with devotion. He gave me a divine Mantropadesam and due to which now I’m able to see very clearly. My blindness is no more”.

Having heard this story from Brahmananda reddy, those kinsmen felt very happy about him and went back to their Nawab and narrated the incident in the same way. To this the Nawab became happy and said, “Do we have such divine saints in our own village? That’s an honor for all of us. If that is true, then you go and bring that Swami to my place. I want to meet him”.

Servants of Nawab went to Swami Veerappaya Charya’s Mutt, saluted him and said, “Swami! Nawab of this village, for some reason, wants to meet you. He asked us to bring you to his palace. We would feel great, if you could come with us”.

Swami replied, “Tell your Nawab that I would visit his place tomorrow morning at eight”.
Servants returned to Nawab and spoke like this, “Swami listened to your invitation and said he would come tomorrow morning at eight”.

Nawab said, “Alright! Tomorrow go with a Palanquin (palaki) and bring him with all respects. Carry him in Palanquin and do not let him come on foot. By the way, what was the facial reaction of that swami when you asked him to come right away on foot?”

Servants replied, “There was no reaction of any kind. He was calm and composed. He just put his fingers at the tip of his nose and breathed air and smelt something by closing his eyes, and simply replied with all serene attitudes that he would visit tomorrow at eight in the morning. There were no signs of anger or distress”.

To that reply, Nawab became happy and went inside his room.
