21. Snake Bite

While the Gondal mandir was being built Yogiji Maharaj and the sadhus lived in a hut built of mud and brick. One night a venomous black cobra bit the index finger of Yogiji Maharaj's left hand. As a result of the poison the pain quickly spread throughout his body. Shastriji Maharaj requested that Yogiji Maharaj be brought to the Akshar Deri immediately. Then at the instructions of Shastriji Maharaj everyone started chanting the holy name of Swaminarayan. After 12 hours the effect of the poison subsided and Yogiji Maharaj opened his eyes. Everyone was convinced about the power of the Swaminarayan Mahamantra and holy Akshar Deri.
