The immortal Lord Hanuman in the web of Time

When Baba Mathang, Urva and other two Mathangs men were gathering honey, six Mathang women were gathering firewood at another place as that was their work assigned for that day. Among them was a girl named Urmi. Urmi is in her early twenties. From childhood itself she was getting seizures regularly. That day also, when she was collecting firewood along with other 5 women, she got seizers. Her jaws got clenched, her body started shaking and jerking. She lost her memory for a while and started behaving abnormally. As usual, she had sensed in advance that she was about to get a seizure. She alerted other women and situated herself at a safe place so that she does not get hurt. After the seizure was over, she lied down under a tree out of tiredness. Other five Mathang women resumed their work of collecting firewood.

The twin Gods of health, the Ashwins were there even before Lord Hanuman came.  They bowed to Lord Hanuman and said, “O the almighty Hanuman, we know that Mathangs are very dear to you and you can’t see them in pain. But in case of Urmi, we are helpless.  Despite applying our entire knowledge, we could not cure her seizures.”

 

It was a bright sunny day. The sunlight was falling on the face of Urmi after funneling through leaves of the tree under which she was lying. Lord Hanuman looked towards her and told to the Ashwins, “O the twin Gods, yes Mathangs are dear to me. I want Urmi to be cured immediately but to cure her you must know her history. You must know about her past birth. Close your eyes. Let me take you through journey of her soul from past birth.”

 

The Ashwins closed their eyes. This is what they saw:
