Sai Darshan during Convalescence Period of Illness

Sai Darshan during Convalescence Period of Illness

I had Sai Darshan in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on September 27, 2015 evening after an interval of more than 4 months and that too during convalescence period of Illness. Prior to this visit, I had Darshan of Shri Sai in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on May 8, 2015 prior to my surgery for cancer of Right Upper Gum.

I got operated for removal of malignant tumour with reconstructive surgery on May 13, 2015. I was hospitalized up to May 20, 2015 and being discharged from hospital same day evening I am in post-operative convalescence at our Bangalore home with periodical check-up at OPD of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore. I started receiving post-operative radiotherapy treatment from June 22, 2015 for destruction of microscopic cancer cells so as to prevent spread of cancer in adjoining part of Right Upper Gum scheduled for 5 days in a week as OPD procedure in Department of Radiation Oncology Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore. On August 14, 2015 my post-operative radiotherapy treatment course was completed and convalescence period of illness commenced. Now time has come how the side effects of radiation subside and how much my physical shape, size and function of face return to lead normal life.

I have been engaging my time mostly using the social media networking website Facebook and my blog website of Yoga and Spirituality during convalescence period of Illness. As a Yoga Practitioner and Shirdi Sai devotee, on May 21, 2015 through Social Networking in Facebook, I posted about my swelling of right upper gum diagnosed as cancer and that I had radical excision surgery to that effect on May 13, 2015 for information to all my Facebook friends, relatives and family members at large with the message that “Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life”. I got quite a good number of likes and comments for the way I am fighting against cancer with much mental and emotional strength. Since that day, I am regularly posting my posts in Facebook on morning quotes, health magazine, photos of my remarkable events etc. on day to day basis. I am reciting morning prayer, listening spiritual bhajans of Shirdi Sai Baba and reading Shri Sai Teeka in Odia daily in morning, noon and night. Subsequent to publication of my article Power of Faith in Spiritual Life in Yoga and Spirituality on May 1, 2015 before my surgery for cancer, in post-surgery recovery period on June 6, 2015 I have published my article Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life in my blog website of Yoga and Spirituality, on July 1, 2015 the article The Significance and Purpose of Prayer was published followed by my last articles Overcoming Misery due to Illness and Managing Convalescence Period of Illness published on August 1, 2015 and September 1, 2015 respectively in the blog website of Yoga and Spirituality.

On September 24, 2015 Thursday during check-up at OPD of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore, the surgeon opined that the wound of Left Thigh created for reconstructive surgery had healed up and I can take up tap water head to toe open bath followed by medium distance journey inside city. Thereafter accompanied by my son, I had Sai Darshan in Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on September 27, 2015 Sunday evening.

I pray to Sai Baba for my early recovery and rehabilitation in convalescence period of Illness during post-operative cancer surgery and post-surgery radiotherapy so that I can have his Darshan in Ashram again at short interval.

  1. The article ‘Sai Darshan during Convalescence Period of Illness’ is the 150th article of the blog Yoga and Spirituality; the 1st article of the blog Yoga and Spirituality being ‘How I became Sai Baba devotee’ published on creation of the blog on May 2, 2010. I could accomplish one and half century publication of the blog website Yoga and Spirituality due to grace and blessings of Sadguru Sai Baba.

  2. Great achievement. Congratulations for fight well performed and being at peace with devotion and prayers. Interaction with friends on net provides support and suggestions if any readily at desk and helps educating others. Faith in Almighty is biggest tonic as it weeds out ill effects of anxiety on body, helps us in enjoying every challenge, better planning, better cooperation from family and nourishes seeds of devotion in others by live examples. Reading holy scriptures reinforce strength of holy thoughts, which keeps our brain cool and constructive. Environment of temples, music of bells and mere thought of being in vicinity of God gives positive suggestions to mind. Well done and keep it up. Snigdha is growing up as a cute girl and is a nice company at our age.

  4. Purnima Panda says:

    Pranam kaka,

    Glad to know that you had a darshan of Sai Baba after a big fight against the disease, it is a great achievement. Devotion to the Guru should be like that of the child towards its mother. Whether the mother is nearby or not, the child is ever confident that the mother will listen when it is in distress. If such confidence and faith is there, then God’s grace will ever be with us to guide us and tide us over the difficult times.

    I hope that your spirit will rise you up as a winner above all odds.

  5. Prakash Padhan says:

    I pray to God for your quick recovery. It’s grace of Sai Baba that you visited his temple after successful operation.Most inspiring thing is your activeness with articles & posting in Yoga and Spirituality & Facebook. You are balanced in distress or difficult circumstances as if you follow Gita shlok- “dukheswanudbignamana Sukheshu bigataspruha…”

  6. Dr.Binod Bihari Naik says:

    Respected Sir,

    The volcanic attack of cancer under current with you remained stagnated and weakened to lengthen its boundary, is good sign in your horizon of life. No doubt due to much advance in medical fraternity cancer is sawed as on your case and possibly as per reconstructive surgery gross body is visibly retained and again you are able to accomplish day to day life; is not a great task done by doctor but it is divine grace of God. Definitely, yes. But how is it possible. Just imagine the reality. You yourself are the doer. Your mental faculty surfaces on gross body with positive intellect because of so long you’re banking in spirituality. The cancer could not be able to spread to mental body; is not the tonic streaming from soulic body that works you by Almighty. Here the dictum of Almighty that “One who steps one towards God then He never forgets to rebate ten”. Sir, maintain the spirit and tempo of life at least that will dawn a good learning to human society. Hope and trust God never neglects you in your accomplishment.

    More we will interact soon at Bengaluru during my ensuing visit.
    With Regards,
    Your Divine Brother
