1. Importance of the holy region of Jamb
Holy place of Jamb is Shri Samarth Ramdas swami’s birthplace situated in Ghansavangi taluka, district Jalna. The Deity Hanuman’s temple, in which Samarth received vision of God and which also preserves the Rampanchayatan belonging to Samarth’s lineage, is located in this village. At the very start of His marriage ceremony, Shri Samarth had fled from the marriage venue. This venue is located 5 kilometres away in the village named Asangaon. Free of cost facility for devotees to stay and partake holy sacrament is provisioned in Jamb.
2. Preparation of food on large scale as a religious
offering to Shriram – an example of miracle of Shri Samarth
On the 8th day of the bright fortnight of the Hindu calendar month of Chaitra, i.e. one day before Ram Navami, bhandara (holy sacrament) is arranged for Shriram in the holy place of Jamb. On that day, 5 to 6 lakh devotees gather in the village. They purify themselves by paying obeisance to Shriram and Shri Samarth. Villagers too are promptly ready to serve these devotees. Villagers arrange for excellent lodging and boarding of the devotees and that too free of cost. There is no shortcoming in any of the arrangements. This is indeed a miracle of Shri Samarth.
3. Amazing pot of ghee which never
becomes empty, in which ghee is obtained even today
One can get to see the pot of ghee, which has a mention in the biography of Samarth Ramdasswami, in the temple of Shriram in the holy place of Jamb. Ghee can be obtained from it even today. This pot never becomes empty. Following true story is narrated regarding the pot.
Once Samarth Ramdasswami had organized bhandara on the occasion of Shri Ram Navami. By His grace everything was in abundance. All of a sudden, pure ghee needed to be served on rice and lentil was over.
Since Ramdasswami was a great yogi and spiritual master, He could accomplish any task through his spiritual power. He tied rope to a pot and dropped it in a nearby well and drew up the pot filled with water. He gave the pot to a servitor and asked him to serve ghee from the pot to the people partaking food from the bhandara. Servitors were puzzled and wondered how they could serve water instead of ghee. Samarth clarified their doubt and remarked, “My Shriram will take care. Go ahead and serve the ghee”. Servitors started serving water to the people sitting in rows to have food. The water from the pot transformed into ghee while serving and lasted even after all devotees had finished having meals. Once all the devotees had finished having food, Samarth emptied the pot into the well, i.e. returned the water drawn from the well to it.
Even today the bhandara is celebrated on the day prior to Ram Navami in the temple of Shriram at Jamb. On the occasion, every devotee is given 100 grams of ghee from this same pot free of cost by the Trust and surprisingly the pot never becomes empty. One can experience this miracle by attending the bhandara on the 8th day of the bright fortnight of the Hindu calendar month of Chaitra. The entire celebration is exemplary and spectacular.
