      Mr. K. Suryam (62), a businessman, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'My wife Mrs. Andalu has been a devotee of Bhagavan since 1970. I did not show much interest in those days.

In 1989 many people from our place were going as a group to do seva at Prasanthi Nilayam for the Birthday celebrations of Bhagavan. They requested me also to join, but I told them I would not come. After all of them left in a bus, I felt a sudden urge to go to Prasanthi Nilayam. I could not resist. I started without reservation. I had no idea how to go to Puttaparthi. In the train, I met a few persons going to Puttaparthi. So I joined them. We had to change at two or three places. Finally we arrived. By that time, free meals started already. For three days I was having darshan, and sleeping in the shed. Later, I met my village group and enlisted for seva.

In those days, Bhagavan used to go around and personally inspect all arrangements. So we had good darshan many times and padanamaskar in the end.

In 1992, I was made convenor of our Samithi. Once I came for seva. I was working at the old museum. Some construction work was going on. They were removing the centring. I was among those working there. Then Bhagavan came there. We all had His darshan. Soon after He had left, a beam suddenly loosened and fell down. I was under it. But it missed me by less than an inch. All thought that I was hurt badly on my head. But, miraculously I escaped. May be Bhagavan came there only to avert that accident and save me.

In 1994, we all joined to construct Sri Sathya Sai mandir at our place. For that we got a Ganesh idol made. We brought it to Prasanthi Nilayam to get it blessed by Bhagavan. To my good fortune our people asked me to carry it. I sat keeping the idol in my lap. Bhagavan came along during darshan. He stopped before me. Smiling at us, He blessed the idol by touching it.

In 2005, we did pooja in Sai mandir at our place for Navarathri (Dasara) festival. Milk like fluid began to ooze out from the photograph of Bhagavan. The lady who was sitting nearby had no idea that it was amrit. She thought some drops fell on it, and wiped it off in haste. It stopped. Later, vibhuti came on the photograph.

Once I came to Prasanthi Nilayam for seva. At the end of the seva period, Bhagavan gave us padanamaskar. 'Swami, I propose to perform my daughter's marriage' I said. 'Sure' Bhagavan replied, 'do perform!' In less than a year, she got a good match and the wedding was performed well owing to His grace.

Once, Bhagavan came in my dream. The scene in the dream was Prasanthi Nilayam. 'Swami' I prayed to Him in the dream, 'I want to be here.' 'Why not?' Bhagavan replied, 'remain here.' I am eagerly waiting for the good day when I can move to Prasanthi Nilayam for good, and settle down at His Lotus Feet doing seva here.'
