Mr. P. Sarathi (20), a student of B.Tech in Hyderabad, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'I was in the X class in 2000. I had to take the public examination that year. My cousin sister Pravalika was also there with me. She has beautiful handwriting while mine is not at all good. Perhaps, because of the good impression created by her hand, she used to score more marks than me in unit tests.

'She is younger than you' my mother told me one day. 'Board examinations are coming. If you cannot score more marks than your younger sister, everyone will put you to shame!'

'Swami, my handwriting is poor, but my answers in the exam are correct' I prayed to Swami, 'but my younger sister is scoring higher marks than me because of her good handwriting. Kindly see that I score marks according to the answers I write, without loss of marks on the ground of poor handwriting.'

Owing to Swami's grace, I scored 15 marks more than my cousin in the aggregate in the public exam.

In the same year, my aunt, Mrs. Sujatha contracted a skin disease. It showed no sign of healing though she went to doctors and spent lot of money.

One of the devotees of Bhagavan advised her to apply vibhuti praying to Swami. She did so faithfully praying to Swami. Her skin problem disappeared very soon. It has never recurred.

In 2003, I was going back to my hostel after spending some time in the bazaar. Our bus was coming. Then there was some drizzle. I ran after the running bus with a view to get in even before it halted. In the process, I slipped and fell down. Usually in such cases, there is the danger of one coming under the wheel. As I fell down, I cried 'Sairam'. The bus stopped and I was helped by my friends on to my legs. Owing to Swami's grace, I escaped coming under the tyre of the bus only within an inch.

My uncle's son, Mr. Rajesh applied for admission to the MBBS course. At that time, if one was to have a seat in a private college, one had to pay Rs.25 lakhs. If one got a free seat based on merit, one had to pay only 2 lakhs. My uncle, a Sai devotee prayed to Swami 'why should you make me spend on the admission Rs. 25 lakhs? If my son gets a free seat in the MBBS, I will spend that amount on your seva'. There was only one general seat in the MBBS course and one in Dental course, yet to be filled. Before Rajesh was a girl with higher merit. So the chances of Rajesh getting the MBBS seat were nonexistent. But the girl who was till then insisting on the MBBS seat asked surprisingly for the seat in the Dental course. So, Rajesh got admission to the free seat saving Rs. 23 lakhs to my uncle. My uncle spent that amount on Bhagavan's Water Supply Project in Mahabubnagar district.'
