Sri Sathya Sai Baba Miracles
Creation, protection and
dissolution in His hand
Once Swami was conversing with
devotees in His interview room. He showed then, His palm and asked
what was there in it. Somebody answered that there was nothing there.
But Baba said in all serenity, "This empty hands holds everything".
When He closed it and opened it a moment later, there was a
locust there. Wonder of wonders, there was also a tiny leaf to serve
as the insect's feed. The locust was actually feeding on it.
In a little while Swami closed His
fist and opened it to reveal that nothing was there. The devotees
present in the could not believe their eyes. Through this incident
Swami revealed to everyone of us, ignorant as we are, that Creation,
Maintenance and dissolution lie in His control.
Bhagawan explains His divinity in a few pregnant words. He declared "Bha"
denotes Creation, "Ga" denotes Protection and "Va" denotes ultimate
dissolution. He who embodies these three supreme powers is Bhagawan.
