|My personal experience of SAI MIRACLE|
Koti Koti pranams at the lotus feet of the Divine Swami,
I'm a 40years old professional ,basically from Bengaluru but now working overseas in Bahrain since 2003. Thanks ,mainly to the pious association of my grandparents & their own experiences with our beloved Swami-I have been exposed to the bliss of Swami since birth.
This sharing of personal experience is just an humble offering to share the magnanimity of our lord.
Though born into a family of staunch SAI devotees & also having personally experienced many wonderful blessings of the lord through HIS magnanimous gestures & graces right through life-I have been a person who has lived life the pleasurable ways. Though strongly spiritual, am not a very religious person. I do indulge in all the pleasures of worldly life & hence not a perfect devotee of our beloved Sai in conventional terms.
Over the past few days, my work pressures & demands had been overwhelming .I was just about managing to do the basics & perform steady work. On 3July'12,I visited Saudi Arabia on work & completely forgot that it was the auspicious GuruPoornima day. At Saudi, met my brother-in-law & indulged in a good feast of mutton biryani ,joked about the senses that splurge on pleasures on weekends at Bahrain not realising for a moment also that it was a holy day. On returning back to office late in the evening ,realised the significance of Guru Poornima, read a few articles on twitter & Facebook on its importance. In my mind thanked & remembered all my teachers/gurus who have moulded me to be the person I'm today .Wrote emails to my mother whom I consider my 1st teacher, my uncle Prakash mama & Ramnath uncle as I have learnt so many thing just in their presence, their thoughts, words & actions. Amidst all these & on the drive back home, paid my humble mental homage to the SADGURU Swami-Sainath for all his mercy, benevolence & guidance through out my life.
The evening was just spent lazing in the company of my daughter ,watching TV & dinner with my inlaws. However,though We moved to the bed around 10pm-exhausted by the travel, work pressures I just could not sleep a wink all night. Hence at around 1am ,decided to watch some TV & after a while started watching Youtube for the SAI experiences shared by Prof Anil. As I viewed the www.saibabaofindia.com ,went through few of Sai experiences, felt sad that never had I experienced that I could share-went through all the old photographs of Swami.At around 4.30am,decided to just lie down for a while as my alarm is dialy set for 5am,so that I could gather my thoughts & start the day. Whilst I moved inot my bedroom, watched out of the window to see if there was day break. Surprisingly noticed the full moon on the West, above the sea view .What caught my attention was the full blissful face of our SWAMI on the moon. I could not believe what I saw. I thought to myself that maybe I am hallucinating since I was reading,seeing,feeling the experiences of Swami on internet & with no sleep, this could be the after effects. I rushed to the bathroom, cleaned up my face-splashed water, felt fresh & came out to see the moon again. SWAMI'S bright face was still visible. I took my Nikon SLR camera-adjusted the settings to macro & clicked a few photographs. But what I saw in the pictured were not very legible. So changed the setting of lens to landscape mode & clicked a few more. Yet the pictures were not too clear. But to the naked eye, I could seeing the bright smiling blissful face of our beloved Swami on the moon still. So I woke up my wife, Kavitha.She came to the window & I asked to tell me what she saw in the moon. She rubbed her eyes & looked deep in her sleepy eyes & said she could see something black like a face. Then I told her that I'm seeing Swami's face. She too tried to look deeply & then said -yes, it does appear like Baba's face. She asked me to click a few photographs & went back to Sleep.
I stood there on our 4th floor window looking hard & deep into the moon. All the hair on my body stood aroused as I realised I was witnessing one of the fabulous miracles that many spiritual devotees of our Swami might have experienced. I felt humbled that HE was showing me HIS omnipresence & discarding my envelope of ego about accepting the timeless, spaceless presence of HIS .I rushed to the prayer room & stood in reverence with hands clasped in front of the 3 different photographs of Swami & noticed a naughty smiling glint in the eyes of all the photographs. My defences were rushed & started weeping like a little boy singing His praises.
At 5.10am when I went to the window again -the moon was almost setting with clouds all around & the face was cleared.! I called my Prakash mama & informed him of what the experience I just had...& within moments now. keying this experience so that many more people from all walks of life can know that HE never lets down His disciples.
In our pursuit of daily/worldly pleasures we might move away from HIM & forget HIS mercy on us. But HE always is around us, within us-guarding us, guiding us & showcasing that HE is alone the real SATHYA in this world.
This is the 1st time, I'm contributing something on SWAMI though do write blogs to share personal experiences. I do not know the norms that people/disciples/devotees use to describe their experiences. All I have tried is be truthful & share what I felt/saw & experienced in those wonderful 30 off minutes of pure bliss .
Strongly believe that everything is HIS play & nothing ever happens without HIS wish. It was HE who made me experience & also making me key in this mail within a hour of the happening. Only He knows best the reason .
On that note ,would like to wind up this experience with prayers for peace & good for everybody.
Samastha loka Sukino bavanthu....
