you mentioned jesus giving sight to the blind that was impossible for medicine to do. Things like raising people from the dead, making crippled people walk, as well as growing an extra arm or leg that was cut off..as well as living without aging/immortality, they are all possible, the science to do these things exist. You just have to have the knowledge. The Rig Veda writings says "Soma is king, Soma is the food of the Gods, the Gods eat Soma. Dr. S. Kalyanaraman in his book "Soma in the Veda" talks about the science of turning things into gold. The Vedic hymns spell out the use of the Soma as a sacred elixir to be ingested for health, longevity and immortality. In one Rig Veda hymn the seers proclaim " i have tasted as one who knows its secret, the honeyed Soma drink that grants freedom, the drink that all, both Gods mortals seek to obtain, calling it nectar. We have drunk the Soma, we have become immortal, we have gone to the light..we have found the gods. The glorious soma drops are my health and salvation. They strengthen my joints as thongs do a cart. May these droplets guard my foot lest it stumble and chase from my body all manner if ills. Far famed soma, stretch out our life spans so that we may live. With hearts inspired may we relish the soma juice like treasure inherited from our fathers. Lengthen our days, king soma..as the sun causes the shining days to grow longer..it is you Soma who guard our bodies. Our weariness and pains are now removed. Soma has surged within us..we have reached our goal, life is prolonged! The drop that we have drunk has entered our hearts, an immortal inside mortals."Whenever a disease attacks you due to the previous sin or some other natural factor, you should go immediately for the medical treatment (tatshaanti raushadhai...). Hence, medical treatment is the first step. One should not think that medical treatment is against the spiritual path. Often, some foolish devotees think like this and feel highly spiritual by saying “yesterday I got fever. I didn’t take any medicine. I was simply praying Lord Rama for the cure”. Such foolish devotee must know that Lord Vishnu Himself created the medicines and gave medical knowledge to the humanity (Vijnaanam etat sarvam janaaardanaat). The Veda says that medicines are created by God (Pruthivyaa oshadhayah).
The reason is that you don’t know whether this illness is the result of your carelessness towards natural laws or due to the punishment of a sin done by you as per the cycle of deeds. You might have got cold. It might have been due to your exposure to cold wind or rains or due to taking lemon juice, tender tamarind fruits etc. In such case, you can take the usual ‘COLDACT’ tablet. You will get immediate cure since this incident comes under the category of ‘Atyutkata karma’, which means actions giving immediate results. When you are drenched in the rain, you will get cold immediately. It is not a sin, the fruit of which is to be enjoyed in the hell or the next birth. You should not say that if one is drenched in rain in this birth, cold and cough will attack him in the hell or heaven after his death or in the next life. When the medicine is given for a long time and the disease become incurable, then only, you must bring this problem to the normal category of sins and fruits. Then only, you must understand that the illness is given to you by the divine administration as a fruit of your previous sin. Such diseases only come under this category in which case the medical treatment fails. The cure of such disease takes place only when the fruit of sin gets exhausted or God cures it by His grace. The miracles are connected to such incurable diseases only.
Jesus gave sight to a blind person, which was impossible in the medical treatment. The filtration of these two types of diseases is done by medical treatment only. If the treatment applies, the illness is not due to any sin, but, due to carelessness to follow the natural laws, which are also created by God only. The remedies for such disease (medicine and medical science) were also given by the same God. If the disease is not cured by medical treatment, you have to treat the disease as the fruit of your past sin. This second type of diseases also comes under the divine administration of God only (because the punishments of sins are also given by God only as per the constitution). The cure of such disease is again by the grace of God only as seen in the miracles (otherwise the soul should undergo the punishment till the whole quantum is exhausted). Show Me a cubic millimetre of space, where God is not involved!
A great devotee also feels shy to take medicines for the disease because he feels that the spectators will feel his devotion as lower because higher devotion to God will cure the disease without medicines. Even the human incarnation, who is capable of curing the disease without the medicine, will not use the special divine power to cure the disease or even to prevent the disease. Disease is the inherent characteristic of external gross body of human incarnation, which is as good as any other human body. To cure the disease, the knowledge of medicines is given by God to humanity as medical science. When such a general provision is existing, what is the need of a special provision to cure the curable disease by spiritual power? When a general provision of pacification of hunger by food and thirst by water is established by God, what is the necessity of invoking special power to cure these natural symptoms? If a devotee is deserving and such a deserving devotee is effected by incurable disease, the human incarnation cures such disease by using the special divine power in order to help the devotee in the spiritual path by granting peace and health. A normal disease of any human being including Himself (His human body) can be cured by medicines blessed by God (Himself) only. Similarly, other symptoms can be cured in general way. The human incarnation also can cure these symptoms using the general provision established by God for all human beings including the human being-component of human incarnation. If special divine power is used for the sake of such symptom that can be cured by general provision, it only shows the specialty of self or ego. Similarly, devotees with hypocrisy do not like to use medicines for their illness before public! They take medicines secretly and say to public that their illness disappeared due to the special grace of God on them! All this is hypocrisy only.
The human incarnation never exhibits such hypocrisy and begs for food to satisfy the hunger, asks for water to pacify the thirst and purchases medicines to cure illness following the general provision, which is also divine being blessed by God. Once, this Datta Swami was taking food in the house of a devotee. This Swami took some tablets while eating the food as usual. A highly spiritual saint was also dining along with this Swami. He felt in his mind like this – “This Swami cured the incurable disease like coma of the wife of the deserving devotee, Ajay. But, why is He taking these tablets meant for normal illness like sugar etc?” Then, this Datta Swami (God Datta spoke actually) said all the above points through the throat of this Swami. Swami represents human being component and Datta Swami represents human incarnation. The spiritual saint (a doctor turned to be a saint) immediately fell on the feet of this Swami for giving a correct answer to the question that was not expressed by him orally! This Swami replied that God Datta is omniscient!
A house holder invited all his friends to hear the preaching of a saint in his house. All the friends came and washed their feet outside with water provided by the house holder in a small tank. The chief guest (saint) also arrived and he can wash his feet by the water from the same tank. If the saint says that he is a special invitee and hence, can’t wash his feet by the water from the same tank, which was a general provision and asks for separate water to be brought by the householder, the saint is egoistic and foolish. The water provided in the tank or brought by him specially are one and the same since both are provided by the same house holder only!
