Brindavan trips....


January 22nd, 2006

Swami has been playing ‘Hide and Seek’ with all devotees for the past few days. On Monday 16th of Jan, suddenly around 11.00 a.m. we got the news that Swami may be going to Brindavan. The rumours soon gained strength and finally turned out to be reality. It was around 11.50 a.m. Some of us were standing across the road outside the College. Most of the students were having their lunch in the Hostel. Swami’s Benz car came along the road. Bhagawan was seated on the back seat with brother Satyajit next to him. We could manage to have a glimpse of Him as He sped away to Brindavan.

At Brindavan, Bhagawan reached at around 3.00 p.m. and retired inside Trayee. However, around 6.00 p.m., He came out and all the students rushed inside Trayee to have a beautiful Bhajan session in the Trayee lawns. The next morning, Swami gave Darshan in the Sai Ramesh Krishan Hall at around 9.40 a.m. in the morning. He walked from the door leading to the dais till His chair with some help. Evening, there were Bhajans from 5.30 p.m. onwards, for an hour or so. A similar schedule went on the next day too.

On Thursday morning, which happened to be the 5th Anniversary Day of the Super Specialty Hospital at Whitefield, there were hopes that Bhagawan would Bless the Hospital with His visit. However, it did not happen so. Some senior doctors and Swami’s students working in the Hospital were standing behind the door leading to the stage in Sai Ramesh Hall, with a cake for Blessings. Bhagawan did Bless the cake and all of them too.

It was around 11.00 a.m. when He came onto the dais for Bhajans. After the Bhajans, Swami stood up to speak something. Thinking that Swami would give a Discourse, a mike was arranged immediately. But Swami just said that He would go to Parthi now and come back soon by the end of the month to give all of the devotees lots of Ananda. After this, Swami left for a senior devotee's house, spent some time there and had Lunch. At 2.15 p.m. He left Bangalore for Parthi.

Bhagawan's car entered the Mandir at exactly 5.00 p.m. when the Omkaram for the Bhajans began. Swami stopped the car near the interview room and got down. Then, sitting on His chair, He went out towards the Ladies side and proceeded to the Poornachandra on the chair itself, giving beautiful Darshan to all on the way. Bhajans were going on. After a while, He came out again, took a full round in the Kulwant Hall, took Aarti and went back again.

On Friday morning, Swami was out for Darshan by 7.30 a.m. itself. Later in the morning, Swami Blessed the General Hospital with a visit and spent a long time interacting with the doctors. In the evening, we waited expectantly to have His Darshan but He did not come out.

On Saturday morning, the 21st of Jan, He came for darshan just before eight o'clock in the morning. After the darshan round, the Porte stopped near the interview room and Bhagawan came out in His chair. He made a short round of the middle portico, taking letters from the gentlemen seated there. Then He got into His car and went on a long drive, upto the nearby town of Gorantla, returning around 9 am. In the evening, Swami came for Darshan at 3.45 p.m. The car took a cut after the Ladies section and went straight towards the interview room. However, not stopping near the interview room, the Porte proceeded further, took a full round along the Gents side and then turned towards the Gopuram. We thought Swami must be going out for another drive, but this time He did not return and went all the way to Brindavan.

Bhagawan reached Brindavan at 7.50 p.m. yesterday. This morning, Swami gave Darshan at 10.00 a.m. Bhajans were sung by the Seva Dal volunteers. It went on till 10.40 a.m. after which, Swami took Aarti and retired for the morning.
