Swami Dayanand's firmness in preaching truth instigated several people to attempt for his death. At Mirzapur a seth hired a tantric to ensure death of swamiji in 21 days. just 3-4 days after the Tantric began his tantra, the seth had an abscess in his throat and his condition became bad to worse day by day. At last the seth could not resist the pain and stopped the tantrik. But all this had no impact on swamiji's propogation of truth.
