Below is a most wonderful Experience of a Student in Swami's Institute in Brindavan :
One of the students of Swami's College in Brindavan was suffering from severe case of Asthma. He had on numerous occassions written to Swami to cure him of the ailment. When Swami did not seem to reply he became increasingly frustrated. He tried to ask Baba about his ailment in Darshan lines but some way or the other he could not establish proper contact with Swami.
The following night he had a severe attack of asthma , he couldn't sleep, he couldn't breathe due to severe choking. He looked at Baba's photograph and asked him, "Do you see how I am suffering? Do you even know how I am feeling now? No, You don't. Because if you would have, You wouldn't remain a silent spectator to my suffering. I will show you how it feels."
So saying He, with great difficulty moved himself towards Baba's photograph and closed Baba's nose and mouth and said, "Do you now understand how it feels " with a sense of anger to Swami. A few moments later he felt a little dizzy fell unconscious.
His roommates woke him up the next morning asking , "Why did you leave your bed and sleep here near Swami's photograph? " The boy got up looking at Swami's photo but did not open his mouth expecting a thorough reprimand from his room mates in case he revealed what he had done during his asthma attack.
The Same day During evening Darshan, Swami having gone through the seating of devotees, came towards students, went straight to the boy and held his hand. In a moment the Boy understood what Swami was doing and he cried out "Swami, I wanted you to cure me, not take my disease on you? Please don't suffer for my sake."
So saying, he tried to free himself of Swami's grip. He suddenly found out that Swami's grip was like an iron rod but Swami's hand was very soft, Swami was looking at him and saying "ONCE YOU ARE IN SWAMI'S HOLD, CAN ANY POWER IN THE WORLD FREE YOU FROM THAT GRIP?
Swami held on for 2 minutes and then started breathing normally. Swami looked at the boy deeply and said -- "Do you think I need your letters to know what's happening with you? I knew about your asthma. Your karmic effect got transferred to me. 20 years of suffering for you is only 2 minutes of suffering for me."
Swami then turned to all the students and said wonderfully "
"Have Total Faith in Me. Give up everything to me. DO MY BIDDING. THE WHOLE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU. BE GOOD INSTRUMENTS OF CHANGE IN SOCIETY. I BLESS YOU ALL."

PS: Twenty hammer-strokes might not succeed in breaking a stone, the 21st stroke might break it. But does that mean that the 20 blows were of no avail? No, each of those 20 strokes contributed its share to the final success. The final result was the cumulative effect of all the 21. Infuse every moment of your life with Love for God. Then, evil tendencies will not hamper your path. The object of all spiritual practices is the destruction of the mind and some day, one good deed will succeed in destroying it. This triumph is the result of all the good deeds done in the past. So never give up, and no good deed will be a waste! - SATHYA SAI
