Anantapur Campus.

Ms. C.R.Krupa, a student of the third year B.Com (Hons) of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Anantapur Campus narrates a few of her experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in her own words.

'As a third standard school girl, I attended the Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas classes in our neighbourhood. Impressed by the Sai principles, we took to the Sai path. However when I reached my ninth standard, we heard of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Now we also made trips to the Aurobindo ashram at Pondicherry. Some friends advised us not to waver but to stick to one God. This observation disturbed the equipoise of my mind. I wished to receive a clarification from Bhagavan, but didn't know how it would come. Later, I was reading the book 'Shri Sathya Sai Divya Kripashraya'. There, in Chapter 18, Shri Narasimha Murthy mentions Shri V. K. Gokak's experience. He says, 'within a year, Gokak had a number of experiences including a few dreams, which made him realize that Swami has in Him Shri Aurobindo and the Mother also.'

On March 31, 2004, we boarded a bus at Anantapur to travel to Chennai, our home town, for summer vacation. As the bus started, I habitually prayed to Swami. Immediately a voice within me said, 'you and your luggage are safe.' I was very happy; but was quite puzzled about the stress on the word 'luggage.' Around 7 a.m. the next morning we reached Chennai. As we alighted and started unloading our luggage from the top of the bus, to our astonishment, we noticed that the rope was cut. The entire luggage was unloaded one by one, and I found my suitcase safe. However, we soon discovered that around fifteen suitcases were missing. I was immediately reminded of the voice that had said, 'you and your luggage are safe.'
