Swami Miraculously Opens a Lock
- A Sai Devotee, New York
In 1995, while still a student (in India), I was just beginning to
know Swami. During my final exams, I was once studying outdoors.
The adjacent house was a commercial studio. Since it
was a Sunday, the studio was locked. As I passed by the studio,
I heard a kitten meowing. It was trapped inside and was
frantically crying for help. Hearing the persistent crying, my
heart melted. I was worried that the kitten would die if left in
that state for too long. The next day was a federal holiday,
leaving no hope for the rescue of the little soul for the next
48 hours. I was completely torn apart at the thought of letting
an innocent life suffer in agony. There was a big lock on the
studio’s door; I tried pulling it but the lock was too strong.
Not knowing of any other means, I started repeating Baba’s name
with intense fervor. Something inside, told me to touch the lock
while chanting Baba’s name. I gently touched the lock and, BOOM!
The lock opened. Sai’s grace had not only shown his benevolence
on a helpless creature, but had also played a great role in
strengthening my faith.
