A Remedy for Headache
Whenever you are tired, just protrude your tongue a bit through your lips, press the index fingers with the respective thumbs in such a way as they make a zero each and rest awhile in this position. This practice helps nourish the neurons and alleviates fatigue. Similarly, one suffering from a severe headache should protrude his tongue out through the teeth and make the form of a zero with the index fingers and thumbs of each hand in the above manner. This should be practised for two minutes at a time and thrice a day. It has helped cure numerous types of headaches so far. Once there was a Shastriji Maharaj. He narrated stories from the „Bhagavata Purana‟. But he would suffer from headache just after a few minutes of starting the discourse. He tried all types of therapies but without success. Once he happened to tell Ghatwale Baba, “Babaji! Despite all medical treatments I have failed to find relief from this headache.” Then Ghatwale Baba advised him to practise the above technique for a few days regularly, which he did and got cured. „As numerous leaves remain hidden within every sprouting leaf of banana; The words of saints carry within them so many hidden messages benign.‟ Ghatwale Baba had told just a simple thing, but that went on to relieve Shastriji of his headache forever.
A mere passing reference from a saint did prove to be a veritable boon for Shastriji.
