Swami materialized a
Shiva Lingam this morning at 8.20 a.m. ( 6.20 a.m.)
Today morning Bhagawan Shri sathya Sai Baba came out to give darshan
to the devotees singing Bhajans. As the bhajans were going on Swami
showed some sign of discomfort a sure sign that Swami is going to
materialize Lingam - The whole hall was in ecstasy by
just the the thought that Swami is going to materialize Siva Lingam.
Suddenly at around 8.20 a.m. The Lingam came out from Swami's mouth.
Apparently Lingam looked milky white in color from distance while it
was coming out of Swami's mouth. However it changed its hue
instantaneously to Gold.

Today morning Swami came at
6:20. a.m. Swami
gave instructions to place Prasadam vessels on both
the sides & in front also. Swami usually does not give these
instructions. At 6:50 leaves Prasadam was distributed. The
auspicious sign of lingodbhavam were in progress i.e. Swami drank
lot of water which is quite unusual from his habit of taking a small
sips. This time Swami suffered for more than 11/2 hour. i.e. from
7:00. – 8.25 Shiva lingam came out at 8:25, it is in golden colour
bit big size like an average size egg, apparently Swami suffered
quite a lot of discomfort due to that. After the lingobhavam Swami
looked very fine and completely at ease. At 8:30 Swami started His
“Lingam darshan” rounds – Swami went around holding the lingam
showing to all the devotees. Bhagavan took 2-3 rounds on all sides.
Until all were content with the darshan of Lingam.
Again Swami was in gift mood, swami gifted another car today this time to a couple Mr. & Mrs. Paramahamsa, in charge of Deenajanodharana - 60 children orphaned whom Swami adopted. Then Swami came down and called all the 60 children Swami spoke and spent some time with them. Swami became very emotional while talking about them. Swami wanted them to chant Vedas which they did befittingly; they sang devotional songs & bhajans too. These boys also thanked (in English language) Swami for taking care of them. Swami threw chocolates at them and pictures were taken. Swami was very blissful and in good mood aptly as one of the meaning of Shiva is the blissful One. Swami gave 1house & 1lakh Indian Rupees to every boy the money will be deposited as fixed amount in bank, so that it may become a permanent source of their income, with Swami's grace these boys are getting 80-90% marks (good grades – A - A+) in public exams.
Swami showered His blessings and praised Mr. & Mrs. Paramahamsa for doing such a good seva for theses children. Swami said that this service is their sadhana (spiritual effort). Swami told with quite a lot of emotions to everyone to be good human beings. This complete scene was so touching, really, words can’t spell out the emotions and spiritual vibrations surrounding our Sai Shiva. At 9:30 Aarti was offered, after Aarti Prasadam was distributed. At 9:50 Swami left for his residence. SBOI group Post -2 read more

boys dressed in traditional dhoti played music with instruments to the
delight of everyone. Live Vedam chanting continued purifying the spiritual
atmosphere of Shivaratri. Swami took complete round in the car as usual &
walked to dais and sat on His chair. We were seated in a corner where
nothing much could be seen. First four cars came into kulwant hall, then
followed an announcement that swami is going to facilitate
four elderly devotees for

steps to the cars blessed each car with garlands standing there & blessed
them on the spot. The above 4-chosen devotees came took blessings sat in
front seat and proceeded outside.The 4 cars gifted by Swami to these blessed
devotees really brought joy and amazement in Sai Kulwant hall. Afterwards they went up & sat on chair.

Devotional songs & different astakams -
lingaashtakam, bilvastakam etc.
the program went on for 1 hour.
Shivaratri prasadam was distributed, a box with sweet inside. It tasted so
delicious. Some calendars were also given but only to the students. After
this 2 bhajans were sung and Aarthi was offered to Bhagavan. At 10:50 Swami

Swami came at 4:00 p.m. everyone is in real festival mood today. Puttparthi
resident and devotees from all across the world are really lucky to see and
hear (and the lucky ones can even touch) Lord Shiva. Today evening White
clothes were distributed to boys & digital dairy for all the students’ boys
& girls. Also beautiful calendars were distributed to all devotees. Swami
was sitting and watching the distribution giving good darshan to all
present. A 4:45 Bhagawan went into the interview room & came out sat in His
car and went back to his residence. Swami came back again at 5:15. This time
Bhagawan walked on verandah with ease and without support, talking to lot of
devotees sitting on the verandah. Then slowly Swami walked towards the
railing. Holding the railings Swami stood there for sometime and blessed
everybody by abhayaasta (raised blessing hand – why fear when I’m here).
After that Swami walked towards his chair and sat on it. He called Mr. Rao -
he is a Telugu poet and has written appx 15600 poems on swami. Swami
instructed one boy to get Mr. Rao (Mr. Rao sits on wheel chair). His wheel
chair was placed beside Swami quite a blessing. At 5:50 Swami sent a word
for Mrs. Susheela – an old Sai devotee and a very famous singer ( telugu
lata mangehskar). She is here to sing for Swami. Bhajans commenced and 2nd &
3rd bhajans was sung by Mrs.Susheela - Eswaramma priya tanaya, manasa
bhajarey guru charanam. After the devotional songs Swami signaled Mr. Rao to
read out his poetry, the devotional poetry recital started at 6:10 & ended
