Memoirs about Nandbabh
devotee of Swami Nandlal Ji, Sri Pratt Nath Razdan
of Batyar Ali Kadal (presently at 27-New Plots,
Jammu) writes lapis experiences and memoirs about
Swami Nand Lal Ji - authors)
Razdan Ji says that he had an ardent desire to see
and meet spiritual people and saints. He used to
accompany his father, a great devotee of Mata
sharika Bhagwati, to Hariparbat. This practice
continued with Shri Razdan Sahib till he left
Srinagar in 1990. Stating that during
his life he has come across a number of spiritual
persons who have blessed him and one among was
Swami Nandlal Ji also.
Razdan sahib writes that for the first time he was
attracted to watch Swami Ji was when he saw him
moving about in the streets if Srinagar in his
usual dress (already described at several places).
He found in his a tall man of robust health with
ruddy cheeks and dazzling demeanor and
he would bee before him in reverence whenever he
would meet him.
passed and Sri Razdan joined service. He had the
fortune of having the Darshan of Swami ji in 1968,
when he was staying with one Dhar family at Karan
nagar, Srinagar. Shri Razdan was himself putting
up nearby at Balgarden, Srinagar. This enabled
Shri Razdan to have Swami Ji's Daershan almost
daily in the morning and in the evening and seek
his blessings. Swami Ji could rightly read the
vibrations of the minds of people and come out
with his reactions without being asked. All this
was by intuition. He could anticipate the coming
occurances well in advance and his predictions
would invariably come true. He was really a
Quallandar with sharp vision
Ji's 'parvanas' and predictions were also recorded
in a register which Shri Razdan Sahib feels must
have been preserved by Shri K.N. Kaul or wherever
he stayed. Shri Razdan cites a few of episodes he
has encountered as:
Miraculous Doctor and Messiah episode: In
his normal mood one day he muttered aloud to
himself, "Be alert and active. Pack up your
baggage and leave for Achabal." It was a
general utterance addressed to none in particular.
day, I attended my office duty. I was surprised to
receive an order of transfer to Achabal. He
recollected what Swami Ji had muttered in the
congregation the previous day. A couple of days
later, I decided to pack up and join my new place
of posting. Before doing so, I went to Swami Ji to
seek his blessings.
his blessings and permission I went to 'Achabal'
and joined my duty there.
a week or so, unfortunately my wife developed
serious female trouble. The top most medical men
of the town examined her and prescribed medicines
and injections etc. But all in vain. My wife's
condition deteriorated day by day. Swami Ji's name
and personality revolved in my mind all the time.
I felt exhausted and lost all hopes of my wife's
this depressed, helpless condition, on day to my
surprise an unknown messenger came and knocked at
my door. I came out to see as to who was knocking
at the door.
messenger promptly informed me that some body in a
taxi was waiting for me on the roadside. I went to
see who it was. Surprisingly I spotted Swami
Ji sitting on the front seat of the car with
one of his disciples named Prabhawati seated on
the rear seat. I knew her. On reaching near
the car I bowed before Swami Ji.
Ji was prompt and good enough to encourage me
saying " Do not worry. She will be alright
before the evening and serve you tasty meals just
in the evening."
this was spontaneous on his part without asking
for it. Swami Ji asked Prabhawati to hand over a
bread that they had brought for my wife from
Ji tasted a bit of the bread and then handed it
over to me. He asked me to feed my wife on it just
then and left without saying anything more.
fed her as directed and lo! and behold! the
hopeless condition and seriousness of the disease
of my wife dried and evaporated unnoticed.
She was alright in no time to the wonder and
surprise of the medical people who had treated
her. She prepared our meals and served it to us as
usual in the evening.
is how a spiritual wonder of the cross vibrations
of the master and the disciple worked.
to point out that in his morning congregations
Prabhawati said to me at Achhabal " Swami Ji
had addressed the audience saying that
somebody was dying at Achabal, I must go to attend
to her and see that she is alright. He ordered for
a taxi, purchased a bread and that is how we came
a clairvoyant and telepathic vision !
The second episode reported by Shri P.N. Razdan
Sahib relates to Shrawan Purnamashi (Full moon
night on Sawan (July/Aug) Month incident at
Pahalgam. It is also the Rakhshya Bandan day on
which people go to Amarnath Yatra in Kashmir. Once
on this night Mr. Razdan saw Swami Ji making lines
on the road. He would mark it only up a particular
spot and turn back immediately. Next morning there
was a cloud burst and the Amarnath yatris had to
face great troubles. They were weeping and mousing.
The cloud burst had swept a crowd in the current
of gushing waters. Perhaps Swami Ji's lines
indicated a halt and warning to passengers not to
proceed further beyond a point. What a prediction.
Razdan says that recollection of such symbolic and
direct predictions addressed to the congregations
can in a general manner prove soul purifying and
