Gunatitanand Swami was on one of his annual tours of Una district in Saurashtra. At that time, communal riots broke out between the Hindus and the Muslims in the town of Una. Outstanding businessmen of the Hindus like Vallabhjibhai, Karamchandbhai and others, had to run away to Junagadh. They submitted their charter of grievances to the Nawab of Junagadh, under whose jurisdiction Una came. However, he did not heed their complaint for two long months. At last, highly distressed, they left Una town for Haliyaad.
Kalyanjibhai, the brother of Vallabhjibhai, was then travelling with Gunatitanand Swami. On receiving a letter of their woes from Vallabhjibhai, Kalyanjibhai was highly depressed. He recounted their woes to Gunatitanand Swami saying, "The Nawab of Junagadh was indifferent to their grievances. Hence, the businessmen of Una have left and are now in Haliyaad. If they abandon Una permanently, then they would lose thousands of rupees by way of collections from the people. So they are all in a
Swamishri said with compassion,""Their trouble will be alleviated if they do as I say." Kalyanjibhai readily agreed, saying, "Swami! We will do as you say. If you wish we will give donations for making silver doors in front of Radha-Raman murtis in Junagadh mandir, or even make a silver "hindola" (swing) for the Lord. But please do relieve us of the misery." Swamishri said, "We do not want any donation from you. If you all vow to accept Sahajanand Swami as the Supreme Godhead, beyond Aksharbrahma that I am, and spread this message to others, then all your troubles will end immediately.
Kalyanjibhai gladly accepted the condition, saying, "Swami! It is a vow which will provide both succour to us and salvation for our souls. Henceforth, we resolve to imbibe in us, and among others, the truth that Shriji Maharaj is the Supreme Godhead. Kalyanjibhai took the oath and so did the others.
No sooner had they vowed thus, then the Nawab of Junagadh made a personal enquiry into their grievances. He could see reason in their demands, and restored them with honor in Una. Swamishri had transformed the Nawab"s attitude-from indifference to favor!
Thus the businessmen of Una were freed of their troubles as they developed an undaunted faith in Shriji Maharaj as the Supreme Godhead!
