The first and least danger which besets the possessor of occult healing power is the praise or fame it brings him from other people, who are led by it to think him greater than he really is. He feels flattered by the praise and elated by the fame, with the result that his ship runs aground on the reef of vanity. His further progress gets stopped. Few can withstand the temptation as Gandhi once withstood it. One day an old Bengali man prostrated before Mahatma Gandhi and expressed gratitude for his having cured him of chronic paralysis. The man had tried other remedies without success and finally resorted to the repeated utterance of Gandhi's name, and was completely cured. When replying, the great liberator of India showed the selfless humility of his character: "Will you oblige me by taking my photograph off your neck? It was not I but God who cured you."
