The art of healing seems to be multi-dimensional. Apart from the story narrative, much wisdom is shared and the key to practice is given which is even more valuable. The author narrates the episodes in the third person (Saukumarya). In Sanskrit Saukumarya means “softness”. So, healing happens as soft as it is in tune with the character of the author. It is an impersonal act that happens through him. A magnet cannot but magnetize.
His ability to transmit subtle wisdom through teaching is well known. Whatever he teaches, he heals too. Healing is not only a science but also an art. The artistic way Saukumarya availed various agencies to heal deeply touches the heart. That healing is a happening in love.
Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar
It was in September 1984.
Saukumarya was giving wisdom teachings to a group in Geneva. Among them there was an Indian doctor who had unbearable headache. He came to Saukumarya’s apartment for medicine, when Saukumarya was engaged with a spiritual healer from Vienna, Austria.
As the Indian doctor stepped in, to see Saukumarya and informed him of his headache, the Austrian healer jumped in and proposed to heal the doctor. He formed a triangle between him, Saukumarya and the patient and did a healing meditation for 15 minutes. The doctor was relieved and thanked the healer.
The healer said, “More than from me, the energy of healing came in a gush from Saukumarya and healed you.” The healer was amazed at the energy of healing that emanated from Saukumarya. He witnessed that the energy was coming to him from Saukumarya and also to the patient (doctor), while even from him the energies were passing to the doctor. The Austrian healer kneeled down before Saukumarya and said, “I never knew that you are a healer. I knew you only as a teacher of Ancient Wisdom. That too only very recently.” Saukumarya said, “Teaching and Healing are but two dimensions of One Wisdom. They are inseparable, unless separated by choice. You too are a teacher and not just a healer. Don’t you keep teaching your students, though not many in number? Let teaching and healing move together, hand in hand.”
The Austrian healer was delighted and invited Saukumarya to Austria at once to teach Ancient Wisdom to a group of healers. Saukumarya taught for three years the significance of the sacred word OM. It happened for three consecutive years during 1988, 89 and 90. Later the Austrian groups joined the wisdom seminars conducted for European nations.
