Anantapur Campus.

Ms. Meera Binny, a student of the third year B.A. 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.

'In my dream, I saw myself standing on the edge of a cliff. The ocean below was beautiful. I saw a staircase leading down, and followed it. I realized that it was going into the ocean. I stopped at the step just over the water. Then I saw Swami. He told me to walk further without any fear, and to hold on to the railings. Though I doubted if I would be able to breathe under water, I obeyed Him. The scenery was so beautiful that my hand left the railing and I was thrown off. Swami scolded me for leaving the railings. I felt very guilty, but I made sure that I followed His command the next time. I walked through the pathway holding the railings tightly.

Then, suddenly, it became pitch dark. I could hear the voices of my friends calling me. I stopped. As I was about to turn back, I heard Swami's stern voice saying, 'why are you turning back?' I replied that the voices were those of my friends. Then Swami said angrily 'friends come and friends go, don't turn back. Keep walking.' I silently kept walking. Then, I heard my mother's voice. I was very happy to hear it as I was walking all alone in the dark. I was about to turn when I heard Swami's voice asking me why I was turning back again. Totally puzzled, I said 'Swami, that is my mother calling me'. To this statement of mine, I got a very stern but sweet reply. Swami told me 'but why are you turning behind? Look in front of you, as mothers are always one step ahead of their children.' I looked ahead and found that there was a light at end of the tunnel.'
