From Note Book 4 of ‘In Woods of God-Realization’
The hand and the whole body.
1. A sick man had perfect faith in a certain doctor. The doctor put his thermometer in the mouth of the invalid. The man felt as if he had come round. For five or six days the application of the thermometer cured the disease. No medicine whatever was made use of.
2. A culprit who was sentenced to capital punishment was experimented upon by two Doctors. Blind folded, he was made to lie down on the ground. A slight scratch by a needle was made. By means of a tube, water of the same temperature with blood was made to flow as if from the body bleeding. The man was continually spoken to as to what quantity of blood had issued out from his veins. In two or three hours the man died after fainting for a while.
