Experience by Devotees of Sri Sathya Sai Baba

  My experience with Swami

Last year I went to India for a trip.  First we went to Madras and then to Bangalore by train.  The train station was dirty and much more crowded than the train stations in Canada.  When we got on the train it was kind of clean.  The one part that I did not like about the train was the washrooms, because they were very dirty.  When we went to Bangalore we stayed overnight at the Taj and set out early the next morning by car to Puttaparthi.  It was a long drive, when we got there we were so tired that we went straight to our hotel, called the Sai Renaissance.  We checked in and went to our room. Our hotel was very clean and there was no TV. As we got dressed I was so excited because I was going to see Swami Sai Baba.

After we got dressed we got directions to the Ashram from the hotel front desk.  They told us that it was walking distance to the Ashram.  So we walked to the Ashram and got in the long line for the afternoon dharshan.  The dharshan hall was very pretty, it had colourful streamers all around it and the ceiling was gold.  We were too late to sit inside the hall but we still got to see Swami from an angle.  When Swami Sai Baba entered, my mother started crying.  I felt very happy and excited to see Swami in person.

After the dharshan was over I was kind of sad because I did not get the opportunity to give my letter to Swami.  But I felt better because my mother told me that there was a special mail box for all the letters to Swami, so we went to this mailbox and I dropped my letter off.  That night I had a dream of Swami who was in my house in Canada, it was a very cool dream, I woke up feeling very happy and peaceful.

The next morning we all woke up at 3 AM to go to the morning dharshan.  We thought we were early but there already was a long line up.  But we were able to sit inside the dharshan hall this time.  I got to see Swami again and it was more exciting than the last time.  My mother felt very happy this time and so did I.  When Swami entered we were all singing bhajans.  I felt very happy to participate.   After the dharshan was over my family and I went around Puttaparthi and saw some of the important places including the house that Baba used to live when he was young.

Finally, on the way back to Bangalore we saw the hospital built by Swami.  The hospital was shaped like the word OM in Sanskrit.  We looked around the hospital.  It was very clean and the people who worked there were very nice.  I found out that some doctors in Canada , USA and England come during their holidays and volunteer at the hospital.  When I grow up I want to become a doctor and during my holidays I would like to volunteer at Swami’s hospital too.  In conclusion, I would like to thank Swami for giving me this opportunity to visit him in Puttaparthi, also for allowing me to write this article about my experiences. I would like to go again and visit Swami in his ashram in Puttaparthi.
