Van Vicharan of Neelkanthvarni
neelkanth-varniAfter giving Moksha to Gopal Yogi, Nilkantth Varni entered Sirpur town where lived a king by the name of Sidhvallabh. The people of Sirpur were very pious. King Sidhvallabh ordered one Gopal Das to serve Nilkantth Varni, while he stayed in Sirpur. There were also thousands of other renunciates, celibates and yogis. Each with a different background. A few were Bhairav devotees, while others were Yogini worshippers, and some were KaalKaa devotees. All the ascetics lived in an open-top building. Nilkantth Varni also lived with them.

The sun had set and the moon had crept up, when suddenly the roar of thunder and lightening occurred. Hearing the thunder and lightening the other ascetics ran for cover in whichever house they could find. The rain bucketed down upon the earth. The ascetics yelled, “ Run for cover, there is too much rain. Run, run, run!”

When King Sidhvallabh came into the courtyard from his palace to do darshan of the ascetics, the only person he saw was Nilkantth Varni sitting there peacefully in deep meditation. After the rain had calmed down and all the ascetics came back to the courtyard, King Sidhvallabh pronounced, “When the rain fell, I finally saw who was the true ascetic among you. Who was truly here for the divine grace of the Lord! You should all take notice of how devout Nilkantth Varni is.” This inflamed many of the other ascetics, who raged with jealousy.

The jealous ascetics threw tainted grains onto Gopal Das, who fell immediately in to unconsciousness. All the ascetics looked on in awe. Then one asked another, “Hey can you help GopalDas? He is in dyer need of you.”

With a sly look on his face and total disregard for what King Sidhvallabh had just said, and because of his great ego, the ascetic responded, “O why don’t you go to Nilkantth Varni? He’s the great one, he’s the greatest of us all. Why don’t you go to him and see if he can help out GopalDas? He is the greatest of the ascetics, right?”

Nilkantth Varni took some water in his palm and sprayed it over Gopal Das. Nilkantth Varni whispered a holy mantra in GopalDas’ ear and he awoke from his unconscious state. He sat up and thanked Nilkantth Varni for what he had done for him.

After hearing this in Sirpur the people of Sirpur began promoting the greatness of Nilkantth Varni. There was great joy throughout the town. Everyone began to see the divinity in Nilkantth Varni’s every step.
