Avataarhood Declaration Day - 20th Oct - Thursday - and
Swami's unexpected physical presence at Brindavan!!
Yesterday morning, who knows who was pining so intensely for
Bhagawan at Brindavan - all we know was that at 11.00 a.m.
we see Swami on the main road in His car, driven by brother
Satyajit. It was not the normal Porte car and so we were a
little suspicious whether it was a normal ride towards
Hospital or something more than that.
Later we got the news that Bhagawan had reached Brindavan at
around 3.00 p.m. Love His Uncertainty!
Over to Brindavan. Yesterday there was no formal Darshan.
This morning, on the auspicious occasion of the Avataar
Declaration Day - 20th October 1940 - 65 years back, Swami
had declared His Avaatarhood - Swami blessed all the
devotees with His Divine Darshan at 9:30 a.m. Bhajans were
sung by the Brindavan Bhajan Group. They had already started
at 9 a.m. and were on in full swing. Swami was there until
The joy and bliss in the hearts of all who had assembled at
Brindavan, Whitefield cannot be described in words. What a
Darshan! Swami after coming on to the stage and sitting
there for some time, expressed His desire to come down. The
sofa was wheeled onto the small lift on the Ladies side and
Bhagawan came down into the Sai Ramesh Hall first block.
Swami came twice along the center path and then turned left
towards the student alumni section. Bonus Darshan! Swami
even smiled and spoke to some of them.
The action-packed morning did not stop there... After Swami
went back to the stage, He asked two persons to come up. He
materialised one ring and showed it to the devotees before
slipping it on to the finger of that person. He was
probabaly the security personnel.
Then Swami signalled for Aarthi and Blessed the prasadam
that the boys had set out to distribute.
As silently as Bhagawan had arrived at Brindavan, He also
left the Brindavan premises in the same way, this afternoon
at 3.00 p.m. Bhagawan arrived here at 5.45 p.m. He zoomed
into the Kulwant Hall and then near the entrance to the
Bhajan Hall. Bhajans were going on from 5.00 p.m. Aarti was
given and Swami retired to His abode. We managed to just
catch a glimpse of His hair through the reflecting window
panes of the car!
