Mr. V. Mohan Babu (35), an agriculturist, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'Around 1995, I shifted from my native village Narayanapeta to Kosigi where I first heard about Bhagavan.

Some devotees from Kosigi were going to Prasanthi Nilayam for darshan of Bhagavan. It was in 1994. They took me with them. We went there during Sivarathri festival.

As I saw the arrangements made for thousands of devotees, I was amazed. I had not seen the like earlier. At that time, Sai Kulwanth Hall was in finishing stages. I felt that my life would be wasted if I did not get the opportunity to touch the Divine feet of Bhagavan. That prompted me to join bhajans and also seva. I came for seva for the 70th Birthday in 1995.

Swami used to give padanamaskar after the seva period. We sat for padanamaskar in the lines. Swami was coming. I was surcharged with emotion. When Swami came and stood in front of me, I forgot myself. Tears were rolling down my cheeks. The ever compassionate and loving Sai stood in front of me and placed His hand on my head by way of blessing. He went on caressing my head - I don't know, how long! Time stood still for me. He materialised akshatas and sprinkled on my head. I took padanamaskar. Since then, I have been coming for seva every year.

I happened to see my wife-to-be on a Thursday. By Swami's grace, I married her the following Thursday!

In 2003, I was given seva at the birthplace of Bhagavan where a temple for Siva has been built. Mr. Bhatt, the priest, asked me one day, 'how many children do you have?'

'Newly married' I replied.

'You are doing seva to Bhagavan' he remarked, 'He will surely bless you with children. Come next year with your son'.

I thought Swami was blessing me, in the guise of the priest. True to his word, I was blessed with a son. We came to Prasanthi Nilayam with the newborn for Gurupurnima the next year.

Once I thought about the good fortune of talking to Bhagavan, and wondered if I would ever have such luck in my life.

After a few days, I had a dream in which Bhagavan had called me for interview. The dream was so realistic that I enjoyed the bliss of going through the interview as if it had taken place in real life.'
