Don't you observe there people standing close to that giant sized boulder and
muttering some thing? Well! here is a queer belief in action. Among the people
there, majority of them ate peddlers dealing in a wide variety of merchandise,
extremely useful for the devotees on the hill, such as fruits, flowers, milk
products, grocery etc. They are mostly illiterate
hawkers, who carry in bags and baskets on their heads many items regularly. Both
in their upward and downward trips, they invariably halt here and standing very
close to the irregularly shaped boulder, put their knees into the cup shaped
hollow spaces for some minutes and mutter God's name. If questioned, they say
that this boulder gives sure relief to the joint pains and their fatigue too
disappears in seconds. Besides, it infuses mysteriously abundant strength and
hope. Some of them with beaming faces vociferously exclaim that this boulder is
more reliable than Balaji, the Kaliyuga Bhagwan; for its curing is instant and a
hundred percent surity. None ever complained, if he believed and implemented
this queer practice. Though it is an inanimate and grotesquely shaped boulder
with many circular hollows in the fore, it is affording comfort and preparing
them for further walk. They say, it is gaining strength and credence even in
this mod times. Belief gives sure relief even to the test tube scientists.
the ways of God mysterious? Would not with such similar that Mightiest
Providence is enacting Jagannataka? By permeating in everything created He makes
His presence felt."
