Miracles of Devaraha Baba

Devaraha Baba was a Hindu saint of modern times who performed numerous miracles. There is no idea regarding the birth date of Devraha Baba or is his age. All that is known is that he attained Samadhi (died) on June 19, 1990. Some people believe that he lived for more than 200 years and he had maintained his body intact by severe yogic practices.

Devaraha Baba lived on the banks of Sarayu River in Deoria District, Uttar Pradesh. He was an omniscient saint, and nothing seemed impossible for him.

Nobody had seen him reading Hindu scriptures or Shastras, but his knowledge stunned even the most eminent of scholars.

Once when some farmers of Deoria complained of continuous erosion of fertile land by the Sarayu River, Baba took up residence at that place and the erosion ended.

The babul trees near the Ashram of Devaraha Baba had no thorns. The Babul trees are famous for its sharp long thorns.

During a Kumbh Mela at Haridwar, an elephant ran amok and the police had orders to shoot it. Baba managed to calm the animal with two fruits.

Once in Kashi, he saved devotees in a boat on Ganga from drowning.

Baba always asked his devotees to meditate upon any form that they adorned, because every form was divine and the thought of Bhagavan destroyed sin.

During his last years he shifted to Vrinadavan and lived atop a machan on the banks of Yamuna River.

Villagers, common man, powerful politicians, writers, film personalities all used to arrive to meet and have darshan of the Baba.
