My Trip to Puttaparthy, 21-29
To My Dear Sai Brothers & Sisters,
Om Sai Ram to all of you,
I was in Puttaparthy from 21-29 July, 2004, and spent 8 blissful
days in the Divine Presence of our most Beloved Bhagawan. As usual
it was most overwhelming for me to be almost face to face with the
Lord. There was a big group from the United Kingdom in
Puttaparthy, and they stayed till 5th July.
On 22nd July Bhagawan materialized a chain for a devotee and even
put it around his neck. How wonderful it was for us to witness
this!! The group from the UK was performing musical
programmes/bhajans every evening, and on 24th July on the eve of
their departure Swami gave each of the ladies a sari, and each of
the gentlemen a dhoti/kurta. He materialised a chain for a boy
from this group who spoke about his experiences with Swami. He
also materialized a chain for a lady along with Vibhuti, after she
related how Swami cured her of Cancer, and her other experiences
with Swami. On 24th July Swami materialized a Ring for this same
lady. It was so so wonderful to see Swami performing these
On 25th July, in the morning the whole group was granted an
Interview in the Mandir, where some more Leelas were performed, as
we all heard them clap several times. I was happy to see Swami
ranting Interviews almost every day. HE still cannot walk without
help, and that pains us all so much, to see him in discomfort.
After the group left, Swami's students performed a play one
evening, and on other evenings related moving experiences with
Swami. One student was cured of blindness TWICE, when his eyes got
burnt with acid while he was performing experiments in the
laboratory. The second time there were no eyes left at all, when
he visited the Doctor. However when he went for Darshan Swami gave
him Vibhuti and asked him to remove the bandage the next morning.
Of course the Doctor could not believe what she saw when she
removed his bandages, as his eyes had reappeared and he could see
On 26th July, I was sitting in the second row, and when Swami
passed me, and looked at me, I smiled at HIM, and HE SMILED back.
That indeed made me immensely happy. It is just so elevating to be
in HIS DIVINE PRESENCE.
I left Puttaparthy with a heavy heart on 29th July.
With Sai Love and Best Wishes
