Mr. K.Baleeswarayya (60), a businessman, had miraculous experiences during a week in a row, which he relates in his own words.

'I invited my brother-in-law, Mr. Yelisetti Simhaiah Gupta, a Sai devotee now residing at Puttaparthi to my house at Vanaparthi. He brought with him a grape coloured Shivalingam, which was found in a coconut, which he had broken on Shivaratri day at Puttaparthi.

On May 17, 2004, we wanted to perform abhishekam to it. Even before we performed abhishekam, we found vibhuti on the lingam. Panavattam also was full of vibhuti. After abhishekam and Pooja, we offered chitrannam (a sort of fried rice) as naivedyam to Swami. We found later in chitrannam five-finger marks as if Swami had taken chitrannam delving his five fingers into it. On the same day, a garland placed on the Photograph of Shirdi Sai Baba in our Pooja Mandir gave way on its own accord, and became two parts.

On May 18, 2004, we found vibhuti from the right foot of Shirdi Sai in the Photograph. Vibhuti emanated was of two tablespoons full.

On May 19, 2004, we performed abhishekam, and after that offered halva in two plates as naivedyam. The halva was placed in well-cut square type pieces. Afterwards, we found a small piece was taken away from one side of from each of the two pieces in both the plates indicating that Swami partook it.

On May 20, 2004, we performed Sai Vratam. Before that we performed abhishekam to the lingam. We offered one neredu fruit and a plate of halva as naivedyam. As the plate was being handed over for the offering, amritam (honey-like sweet viscus liquid) came at the bottom of the halva in the plate. The neredu fruit had a small piece removed, as if Swami had bitten a slight piece from it and eaten it. Simultaneously, amritam came also in another halva plate placed as naivedyam before devatarchana in the kitchen.

On May 21, 2004, we performed abhishekam to lingam and did Pooja. At the end of the Pooja, 27 laddus were offered in 3 plates - each containing 9 laddus. The plates were placed in 3 different places of worship in the house. A ghee casket was also placed in each plate. There was vibhuti on all the 3 plates as well as the caskets of ghee as a token of Swami's acceptance of offering. Vibhuti also appeared before Swami's Photograph.

On May 22, 2004, we all came to Puttaparthi and performed abhishekam to the lingam in the house of my brother-in-law, Mr. Simhaiah Gupta. We also participated in the Bhajan at Prasanthi Nilayam.

My brother-in-law came home after Bhajan, and wanted to put lingam in the casket in his pocket, which he would be carrying always. When the empty casket was opened to place the lingam in it, there was kumkum filled to the half! And on the plate of pongali offered to Swami was His palm mark signifying His acceptance of the offering!'
