      Mr. G. Narasimha Rao, a devotee of Bhagavan, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'In 1997, I was given a cheque for Rs. 20,000 by someone, but it bounced. I went to the court. Then that person came for compromise agreeing to pay Rs. 5,000 more. With that unexpected extra income I went to Tirupati. After darshan there, I was told by a stranger 'there is God walking on earth at Puttaparthi. Go there.' I came to Prasanthi Nilayam. I stayed in the shed. I wanted to return the same day as I had darshan. 'All buses are cancelled' they told me at the bus stand, 'cyclone is there, you know.' I had to stay for three days. Other devotees told me 'Swami wants to bless you with darshan for two more days. Besides, had you left, you would have faced inconvenience on the way.'

In 1998, I went to Brindavan, Bangalore and sat in the darshan line. As Bhagavan came near, I cried 'Swami'. Bhagavan turned back and said 'yemi (what)?' I could not answer. Though I wanted to ask Him many things, I don't know what made me dumb that moment. Swami came to me, materialized vibhuti and gave me. Since then, there has been no looking back for me. My daughter passed M.Tech and my two sons passed MCA.

In 2004, I came for darshan at Prasanthi Nilayam. On return, an alliance came for my daughter. I had no money with me. But the alliance was settled. Marriage took place on November 18, 2004. I spent Rs. 7 lakhs in all! I don't know how the money poured in though, of course, as loans.

Earlier in 2003, I came to Prasanthi Nilayam and gave a letter to Bhagavan for a house. On return I could construct a house with Rs. 6 lakhs, without raising loans.

In 2002, I gave a letter to Bhagavan about not getting good price for the crop. That year, the entire crop had been offered by buyers only Rs. 45,000. After giving letter to Bhagavan, I returned to my place. Unexpectedly the prices rose and I could get as much as over Rs. one lakh for the same crop to the wonder of all!

In 1996, I wanted to dig a bore well in my field where I had a farm house. Everyone advised me to give it up as water was not found even after digging deep. I prayed to Bhagavan and started. We struck excellent water - sweet and profuse, to the amazement of all.

In 2001, the crops withered owing to drought. I prayed to Bhagavan regularly. That year, a field on which I had no hopes gave a very high yield of 50 bags. Mine was the only field to yield a good harvest in the entire area!

In 2006, I came to Prasanthi Nilayam for seva in January. Then I saw an interesting spectacle of exchanging danda (a long stick) by sevadal at the time of change of guard at the Ganesh gate. This chance is generally there only for those posted at the Ganesh gate. 'How I wish I was leading the ceremony of exchange of danda' I thought wistfully then. I came for seva again in March 2006. Unexpectedly I was posted at the Ganesh gate, and could fulfil my desire so soon!'
