Mr. Jitender Verma is an audiologist / speech pathologist at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh. He narrates, in his own words, his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan.

I got married on November 12, 2003. My wife Rashmi is a religious person. After marriage, we went to Ooty, Kodaicanal. As we had relatives in Bangalore, we stopped there on our return journey.

When our return to Chandigarh got delayed by 3-4 days, our relatives at Bangalore suggested to us to have Darshan of Baba at Puttaparthi (they are not devotees). We came to Prasanthi Nilayam on December 30, 2003. Enroute, we had uncomfortable journey. We got accommodation at Prasanthi Nilayam easily. We had Baba's Darshan the next morning. It had a miraculous effect on my wife and me. Both of us felt attracted to Him. We stayed on for a few days there and returned on January 6, 2004.

I was constantly thinking of Baba after we came back. One night, when I was dozing, someone called me 'hey son', only I heard the voice. I got up and came into the lobby and, lo, Baba was everywhere in our home wherever I could see. I had not heard Baba's voice before, but when I heard Him on Sanskaar TV, I was sure it was His voice, which had called me that night.

Second time, we were at our relatives' place for jagaran, when Baba came in physical form and encouraged me to play the role of Lord Shiva and my wife the role of Parvathi. As I was hesitant, Baba told me, 'I am Shiva and Shakthi, do play the part'.

Third time, it was in the afternoon, I was half asleep, when I heard our doorbell. I got up and peeped through window to see. There was a beautiful red car parked before our house; it was splendid with brass railings and the rear seat was like king's throne. I had never seen the car before. When I opened the main door, there was nothing on the road. I got to sleep again. Baba came in the same car in my dream and told me 'I have come to take you to Parthi, come with Me'. I was shocked to see the same car (golf-cart in which Baba comes nowadays) in photos of Shivarathri on the Internet with Baba sitting on rear seat majestically.

By this time, my wife and I decided to go to Parthi. We were going through a lean patch. But Baba arranged money and we came to Prasanthi Nilayam on November 18 and stayed till December 1, 2004. During our visit, we two decided to live at Prasanthi Nilayam for the rest of our lives. We both wrote separate letters to Baba saying our prayers. Baba did not take our letters. But I posted the same. To my surprise, when we reached home, I received an interview call from the General Hospital, Prasanthi Nilayam through mail from Dr. N M Alreja (In-charge of the General Hospital) on December 1. I was back in Prasanthi Nilayam on December 14.

On this visit, when I came for the interview, Baba sent word that I am young and should remain with my family and that He will call me at a later stage. I was disappointed. But I felt happy that He had given me a prompt reply to my letter, which I had posted at Prasanthi Nilayam earlier.

After returning to my place, Swami appeared in my dream and said, 'I will call you to Prasanthi in 2014' (I did not catch the year exactly mentioned by Swami. I presume He mentioned 2014).

Strange are the ways of Baba.'
