Deeply humbled and grateful, I write these words.
Meeting this Ayurvedic Healer in Udaipur, Rajasthan, was one of the very precious moments, one of the jewels of my journey. ✨
Even now, I see so much love in his eyes.
As I strolled through the streets, as always, with a curious eye and my camera, I saw a very interesting man standing on the opposite side of the street. I felt a strong and alive sense of Presence coming from him, this was what attracted me to take the picture. I asked him, with gestures, if it was okay; he nodded.
I thanked him.
He waved me to come closer, and said „Come again tomorrow morning, many people coming, many people coming.“ So next morning, as I arrived there (as usually, a little late), I saw a big crowd of people gathered around his small little stall.
I was shy to approach them, and even more shy to disturb them just to take my pictures, so I stood by the side, until someone waved me to come. I approached the people, slowly, smilingly and curious.
A man talked to me, and said: „This man, healing many people! No-one healing them, but you go to him, he heals you! He is doing it for free, no charge, for anyone.“ „No charge?“ I asked, an amazement. „No charge“, the man confirmed.
I observed the process… He seemingly put together the most random things, which seemed like a very strange vegetable smoothie. He had a few different kitchen utensils, among which there were boxes, spoons, a smoothie maker… He was pouring all different liquids, seeds, etc. into it, seeming perfectly at ease, perfectly aligned with what he was doing. He seemed to have a clear vision and a clear plan, and handed everybody exactly what they needed.
Slowly, the people wandered off in all different directions, going their ways again. After the procedure ended, I talked to him.
When I asked him, how he learnt it, he said, „God gave me the powers.“ and pointed to the sky above.
His father had also been an Ayurvedic doctor, and he had taught him from when he was a small child. They were a poor family, he himself was poor. Still, he never demanded money.
Who could give, gave as much as they could, the others would get the medicine for free.
