Everything moves by the grace of god

Shri Venkat Rao, a retired structural engineer, was supervising a building of his friend and invited Pujya Shri Nimishananda Guruji to bless the site and the construction as he was experiencing impediments in construction at this particular site. He shared, “The roofing system here is a little complicated and everyone who was asked to quote was asking for a really high price. The architect was also was very upset and perturbed. But Pujya Guruji was completely unruffled and very calm. He said, ‘Don’t worry Shri Venkat Rao. Mother will take care of it.’ But I continued to be anxious. Three days ago, I came to the site to meet two of the contractors who had already quoted. Shri Nimishananda Guruji very kindly accompanied me. It so happened that we were a little early and nobody had arrived yet. As we were checking the progress of the work, a truck with centring materials drove up and stopped at the site. A man jumped down from the truck and walked up to us.

‘‘He said, ‘I was driving past and saw that this basement had reached the roof level. I have just now dismantled all this material from a building site nearby. Can I offer you my services?’ When I enquired about his rates, I was amazed to find that they were very reasonable. The material in his truck was of good quality. A deal was agreed upon and was sealed the very same day. Now the centring has already been put up. He has done an excellent job. It was as simple as that! Mother’s Grace really works miracles.”

“What a remarkable coincidence!” exclaimed one of the engineers.

Shri Nimishananda Guruji laughed and said, “There are no coincidences in life. Everything happens through divine providence.”
