Mr. M. V. Naidu(52), a resident of Visakapatinam, narrates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'I came to Prasanthi Nilayam for the first time in 1981-82 in a tourist bus. Swami was not there at that time.

My daughter, Ms.Sujata appeared for EAMCET, but could not get through. She attempted again. I went to Chennai where I ran into an acquaintance Mr. Bose. His daughter got a seat in medicine. 'I am going to Prasanthi Nilayam' he told me, 'why not join us? We go to Visakhapatnam via Puttaparthi.' I was not a devotee. Besides, I did not have a good opinion of Bhagavan at that time. My wife, Mrs. Appala Narasamma was a devotee even then. I don't know how I agreed, and I came to Prasanthi Nilayam again with Mr. Bose in 1992. We sat in the darshan line in the morning; Swami was moving along darshan lines. I felt a fine fragrance enveloping the place. We returned. My daughter got a seat in medicine. Later she was married to a bridegroom working in the USA. She is now abroad pursuing her higher studies in medicine there owing to Swami's grace.

In Aug 2005, my daughter and son-in-law invited my wife and me to the USA. My son-in-law's mother also was to come. She applied for VISA, but it was rejected. I could not go as I had work here; so I wanted to send my wife. She went alone to Chennai for VISA interview. She was not educated. She took a book of Swami's stotras and namas with her and a copy of Sanathana Sarathi. She could not understand what they asked her. She did not know if they understood what she told them. It was a brief interview. So every one said she had no chance. But owing to Swami's grace, she got the VISA, travelled to the USA alone and returned safely.'
