  Letter to Swami

Sai Ram Divine Ones reading this message:

This took place in the Verandah at Prasanthi Nilayam on Nov/26/99.

Our Lord had just emerged from the interview room. A small student sitting in the first line where the students sit (one step below the main verandah) clasped a letter in his two palms and offered it to Swami. Swami took the letter and the boy offered padnamaskar. Then Swami asked the boy if it was a big letter or a small letter, the boy did not reply but just kept on looking a Swami with palms calsped in Namaskar position. Swami opened the envelope and saw the letter and instantly there was so much joy all around, just looking at the expression on Swami's face.

Swami first read the letter for everyone seated in the front and then showed the letter to the students seated in the front as well as the adults seated in the front in the Verandah.

The letter went: "MY DEAR SWAMI, PLEASE DON'T WORK SO HARD, PLEASE TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, FOR YOUR BODY IS MY BODY".

Swami then asked the boy 'How old are you?', the boy replied 'Seven'

Swami also asked the boy 'From where are you?' the boy replied 'From Swami'

At this point Swami looked around to everyone with so much joy, as if to say, 'Look at this Boy!'

Immediately Swami turned to uncle G.B. (co-ordinator for Arabian Gulf countries) and asked him 'From where are you?', uncle G.B. replied 'From You Swami', and Swami said to him 'I Know, I know, I know, you are simply saying that because you just heard this little boy say the same thing, you are from Dubai'.

Then Swami materialised Vibhuti for the 7 year old boy, and no sooner did He finish materialising the Vibhuti, the boy pulled out a handherchief for Swami to wipe is hands!

My opinion is that perhaps we can learn a lesson of simplicity, honesty and purity from this act of Divinity which took place between the 7 year old boy and Our Lord!

Yours in Divine friendship,
S. D. B. D.
