Life Stories of devotees Blessed with the Grace of Sri Radhaji

Boy Rehaman


Through the amazing life of Rehman, a boy of 9 years who ceaselessly drank the nectar of Radha naam Sriji had revealed the world that she would accompany the devotee who immersed in Her incessant meditation. Like an endless flow of a stream, the boy used to recite the name 'Shyama' eversince he first heard the Name

A small continuity of devotion from the previous lives or a little performance of Her service will surely attract her protection irrespective of caste, creed, religion and age of the Devotee.

Like a cow which anxiously reaches out to meet its estranged calf, Radhaji attracted the boy Rehman in the Vrindavana Dham. How great would have been his spiritual 'Samskar' in his previous life we do not know. The readers would invariably acquaint themselves how this tiny boy sacrificed his home and left for Vrindavan in the darkness of a bone-chilling wintry night.

Near Vrindavan, the city Mathura is located. Once this city was the capital of Kamsa - a king with demonic tendency. Mirja Saheb - A Musalman leader was used to live there in Mathura. He had a only son of eight years. This boy was not at all aware of either Hindu religion of Hindu Traditions.

One evening Rehman was going back home leaving the school. Out of curiosity he went into a temple one his way. He peeped through the doors of the temple and saw a beautifully decorated marble idol of Radha Devi. Due to the Sankalpa (intention) of Sriji, the boy felt as if the idol was fondly questioning "My dear, come near to me". 'What is the name of this idol' Please tell me, the boy asked nearby people. "She is Shyama Devi (Another name for Radhaji) Great Goddess. We lovingly worship her as "Shyama', 'Shayma', "They replied affectionately. The boy kept on watching the Idol. "Here is Shyama's prasad, my boy. Take this" Rehman heard the gentle voice of the priest. Saying this the priest kept sweetmeats offered to Sri Shyamaji in the hands of Rehman. Partaking the prasad he went back to his home. His mind was completely turned towards 'Shyamaji'. No one can ever predict whom Radhaji would choose as Her devotee. The moment he partook the prasad of Radhaji, a new light entered into his body and mind. His mind was completely attracted to the Name and Form of Sriji. Without reason his eyes were shedding tears. He could not leave the 'Shyama' Name even for a moment. Remaining silent in a corner of his house the boy fondly recited the Nam (Name). His mother surprised at the strange ways her son and asked him "Why do you chant this new name, Rehman ? Did you forget Allah ? If your father knows about this, he won't remain silent like me. He won't leave you without giving a strong punishment", cautioned the mother. Meanwhile the father himself arrived and saw the strange behaviour of his boy, "Where from did yo acquire this Kafir's name Re, "saying so, the father started beating the boy. "Please leave him. He will stop it soon. Don't beat him any more" mother restrained the angry father. Without sleeping that night even a moment the boy continuously chanted the name 'shyama' 'shyama', and stayed outside of the house throughout night.

Very next day the father had taken the boy to the mullah (Muslim Teacher) He saw Rehman engrossed in recitation. Chanting ... Shyama.. Shyama "He is in the grip of a spirit with four whips everything will be set right. On hearing these words, the father himself started beating the boy. Mullah also beaten him. Rehman didn't even weep for a minute inspite of heavy beating, nor did he try to escape from that place. And never paused the chanting of 'Shyama' Nam "Don't give him food, any more" Mirja Saheb warned his wife and went away.

Mother had held the hand of the boy and took him inside. She felt aghast as she saw the wounds on his body. "You are my only child Rehman. At least for my satisfaction chant 'Allahoo" she said weeping. But the child gave this reply. 'I cannot leave this Name even for a minute, Mother. This is coming out from my inside. It is giving me great happiness, Amma? I cannot live without Shyama Nam. What can I do ? Even if I were beaten for long, even If I were not given food, I cannot leave Shyama's Name. Even if I were killed, I cannot leave this Name. I will remain a Kafir (low caste person). I get great pain when I leave this Sweet Name even for minute. Only due to this reason I cannot chant 'Allahoo' Amma. Even as I close my mouth the Name is heard from within. Though I didn't take food I am not stale or hungry mother. I am not getting sleep at night. I do not know what will happen next moment" saying so Rehman wept for sometime.
