Have Faith

(True Story)

At the time of Indira Gandhi's assassination...

My story begins here about one Sikh gentleman, a friend of a friend, who

was

captured at night by a gang of angry ruffians determined to do some serious

damage. They abused him sufficiently, beat him up, made him nice and soft

and

then took him to a deserted lumber mill. There, they tied him up and lifted

him

onto a chopping block where an immense electric saw would, if used

correctly,

cut logs into long even planks of wood, or in this case, cleave this poor

Sikh

in two.

The inflamed men started up the machinery and the saw began to whirl away.

The

Sikh realised his time had almost come. He gave up his struggling and began

to

sing the 'MOOL MANTR', "EK OANKAR, SAT NAM, KARTA PURAKH, NIR BHO..." His

courage welled up within him and he began to shout the sacred chant at the

top

of his lungs. Suddenly, which is not uncommon in India, the power failed.

All

the electricity shut down and the men were surrounded in immediate

darkness.

Being sensitive to superstition, these men were spooked. This Sikh had

started

chanting and obviously something answered his call. They were freaked out.

They

grabbed for one another and with frightened voices. It took them a moment

to

gather their senses whereupon they turned and high tailed it out of there.

They

left like lightening and dared not even look behind them as they ran away.

The Sikh claims he need never doubt again. So, Have A Little Faith !!
