This is a story of an amazing transformation of a patient from West Bengal, India for whom God was a nonentity before he stepped into Baba's Hospital in Whitefield and now he says “I had heard of heaven…..(but I) did not think it would be in Whitefield.”

It is not uncommon for patients who have been recipients of Bhagavan's unconditional love through the superior medical care, coupled with the love and affection of the staff, to write to Swami’s Hospitals expressing their gratitude to Baba and the hospital personnel.

Once in a while, though, there comes along a patient for whom the Hospital and the treatment made available here are nothing short of a miracle. They strike a deep and deadly blow at one's narrow ways of thinking, fuelled by ego, self-centeredness and materialism.

Mr. Jagdish Chandra Ghosh is one such individual who underwent a bypass surgery in January 2006. He came to the Hospital referred by his son, a doctor, who told him that, “If you cannot find a cure for your illness at this hospital there is no other place in the world where you can be cured.”

The Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield, Bangalore.

During his pre-discharge counseling session, Jagdish opened up and revealed that during his stay at the hospital he underwent a sea change in his perceptions and went from being an atheist to feeling deep gratitude to Him for having opened his eyes to reality. This change, he candidly admits, is due to Divine grace. For the first time, he has become aware of something beyond the body and mind and has now embarked on a journey of self-exploration and understanding.

The following is an English translation of the letter written by Jagdish, containing the outpourings of a sincere heart profoundly touched by the love of a Divine Being.

Letter By Jagadish Chandra Ghosh To SSSIHMS, WF

I had heard of Heaven, but not in my wildest dreams did I think that it would be in Whitefield, a place in Bangalore in the state of Karnataka.

As a member of the CPI (M) party, I was an atheist. I used to think of everything as deception, magic. But standing in front of the hospital, nay a temple, I was shaken to the core of my beliefs.

I saw people irrespective of caste and religion being received with the hope of better treatment, the hope to live.

In a country where even government hospitals do not provide free medicine for mere fever, in that very country there is a service organization providing the best quality treatment for heart and nervous system disorders absolutely free of cost. Is it possible?

I felt disgusted at my own distorted beliefs that I had harbored all these years. Here I saw the fulfillment of those golden words of Swami Vivekananda,

“Who serves others, serves God.”

It is true that service to mankind is service to God, but where such service is rendered by God Himself, it becomes impeccable – perfect. Divinity pervades every activity here.

SSSIHMS – I am thankful not just because of my free treatment (CAB) but more so since my long held wrong beliefs were given the correct direction. I know now that God exists. I realized the value of service, duties and responsibilities.

In life, if I get any opportunity to come and serve at Baba’s lotus feet, doing service of any kind, I will find fulfillment in my life. This alone is my prayer.

Jagadish Chandra Ghosh

West Bengal, India.
