At Anoop Shahar a Brahman presented to Swamiji a betal. Maharishi accepted and ate it. There was poison in the betal and Swamiji remedied poison by yogic process of Basti and nyoli.
Syed Mohammand a muslim Tehsildar (Sub-Divisional Officer) of Anoop Shahar was a devotee of Swamiji. He arrested the culprit and brought him to Maharishi. Syed Mohammad was surprised when Maharishi directed him to set the culprit free and said "I have come to liberate people from Bondage and not to put them in bondage. If evil persons do not leave their evil habits, why should we leave our good habits."
