Jhulelal : Life Saga
Sindhi Deity Jhulelal - Miracles of Jhulelal
King Mirak Shah called the Hindus and asked about the decision. As the Hindus, with fulfillment of first part of aakashwani were with confidence and faith about their rescue so they asked for more time. Mirik Shah was aware about the birth of boy but was interested in knowing how a child can rescue Hindus from his trap so he not only granted the time but also asked his minister Ahirio to go to Nasarpur for enquiry and if possible to kill the child.
Here in Nasarpur, Ratamchand has performed all the regular customs like "Munan" [Making the child's head hairless or removing birth hairs from the head] and in due course of time took Udaychand to Guru Gorakhnath for the Diksha [formal start of education]. Looking at the boy Guru Gorakhnath smiled and said "what can I give to whom from we are getting knowledge" , but for name sack he gave "Alakh Nirajan" as guru mantra to child.
The boy was growing in age and step mother was opinion that Udero must do something for adding to family earning so one day she gave him boiled beans "Chana" for selling in the market. Jhulelal took the Mataki [earthen pot] and came to bank of river Sindhu, where he distributed one half among the gathering and other to river Sindhu. As the evening came people who were doing spiritual talks with Amarlal whole day saw the mataki coming back to bank and was filled with fine quality of rice. Uderolal took the mataki to home and handed over to mother.
The miracle stories spreading about the boy have created a kind of fear in the mind of Mirik Shah, he called his minister Ahirio [who after the visit to Nasarpur was devotee of Jhulelal] and ask for arranging a private meeting with Jhulelal. On persisting force from Moulavis and other advisors, Mirik shah ordered for arrest of Jhulelal during this meeting. A miracle happening started as not only the place got encircled with fire but water also started to flood in the palace. sensing no place for escape Mirik shah prayed Amarlal with words I agree that Hindu & Muslim both are children of one God and nobody should force other for following his religion, I promise to keep my this word for rest of my life but please rescue us. Jhulelal rescued all of them and told
FIRE IS THE FIRST PRINCIPLE OF THE UNIVERSE & WATER IS THE FIRST PRINCIPLE OF LIFE.
Since that time the tradition of Jot [fire] and Daut [water] is in continuation at Jhulelal temples. Boiled beans Chana and sweet rice Tanhiree become the Prasad and offering to Lal Sain Uderolal.
