A Cheerful Patient

[Listen to Asha read this story]

When he moved to India in November 2003, the transition was hard on Swamiji’s body. He took several bad falls, had a near-fatal case of pneumonia, persistent dehydration, and several episodes of congestive heart failure. His friends were deeply concerned, but Swamiji accepted it all cheerfully.

Once, when he was recovering in the hospital, a swami from Rishikesh visited. “I am so sorry to find you unwell,” the swami said sympathetically.

“Don’t worry about me,” Swamiji replied with a smile, “this is just tapasya to help get my Guru’s work going in India.”
