Once, his highness was travelling in the eastern part of the desert Thal along with some Seekers and Dervishes. On their journey, the Seeker asked his highness that 'O highness Faqeer! What thing is called Akseer of Nazar (gaze)?' That time, a man was tying a bundle of jungle wood and was going to lift it up that his highness threw a gaze upon him and that person started looking at sky with eyes open wide. His highness told the Seekers that 'when we will return from our journey at the same place, this person will give you reply to your question by his own tongue'. Hence, when they were on their way back and the same place came, a Seeker humbly reminded him that 'O Hazrat! We have arrived back the same spot. Please! Give us answer of our question as we have arrived at the same place'. His highness said 'let us ask the woodcutter'. The Seekers were surprised to see that that woodcutter was still standing in same condition with his eyes looking at sky and the bundle of wood lying in front of him. His highness ordered the Seekers to go and ask the answer of their question from that person.
They went near him and addressed to him but that person stood still like a statue and gave no reply. When they called him again and again and he gave no feedback, they requested his highness to ask that woodcutter. His highness said that 'the day we passed by this place, in what condition you saw him?' They respectfully replied that 'he was collecting wood and was going to lift that bundle. However when yours highness gazed upon him, he started gazing upon the heavens'. He explained that 'he is standing in the same condition since that time'. He, then, gazed upon him again and he became conscious again and fell in his blessed feet rubbing his eye and started weeping and crying aloud with requests that he should be sent back to same condition for God's sake'. His highness asked him to tell that which he wanted so that by his words, his Seekers could get the reply of their question concerning the Akseer of Gaze. He humbly told that 'O highness! When you were passing by this place, I was just to lift the bundle of the wood that you gazed upon with your Inwardly Gaze and I Drowned into the Mushahida of Allah Almighty because of that one Gaze at the same spot and I remained drowned in the same joy and bliss till yours highness brought me back to the previous state. For God's sake send me back to same state as I cannot wait more'.
