      Mr. P.V. Rajeswara Rao (61), who retired as Assistant Accounts Officer, AP Transco, Hyderabad, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'Though I have been hearing about Sri Sathya Sai Baba since the sixties, I had no belief in Him. One day my wife, Mrs. Sarala Devi saw a photograph of Swami in Ameerpet, Hyderabad and bought it. As she was not sure of my approval, she did not put it in the pooja but kept it on the fridge. This was in 1998. One of our relatives suggested to her to keep it in pooja. So she shifted if to pooja in June 2000. In about July or August 2000, we noticed some liquid coming down on the photograph. I thought that my wife sprinkled some water in the course of pooja. Then, she asked me one day 'what is that mark on the photograph?' We began closely observing it. Some viscous liquid was coming down. I tasted a little. It was very sweet. We began to collect it and give as theertham to devotees coming to see the miracle. It went on for about a month and a half. Then it ceased. Soon after the amrit started emanating, we got the good news that my eldest daughter who was in the USA was in the family way. We went to the USA for her delivery and she was blessed with a son.

After sometime we returned from the USA. Then amrit started emanating again. After a few days an alliance came for my second daughter. The bridegroom and his mother came to my house to see the bride. When they noticed the Bhagavan's photograph in the pooja, 'are you devotees of Baba/' the mother of the bridegroom asked. 'Yes, of course!' my wife replied. They readily agreed to our alliance and the marriage was consummated in 2001. Thus the appearance of amrit in our house synchronized with some auspicious turn each time.

In 2002, we went to call on Dr. K.V. Krishna Kumari, the author of Bhadra Kalyanam. She gave my wife a coconut. It was one with cover in tact. We received it on Thursday. She wanted to use it on Saturday. But on Saturday, we found that vibhuti was emanating from it. So we did not use it. Vibhuti emanated like that from the coconut for about two months.

One of our relatives, Dr. K.V. Sampath Kumar of Karimnagar presented me a photograph when we went there for a marriage. It was a photograph he took at Rajahmundry or Vizag - I don't remember what he said. When he saw that, it had Lord Venkateswara as the main idol in the middle and other deities such as Ganesh, Lakshmi, Saraswati, etc all around the main figure. But when the film was developed, Lord Venkateswara was there in the centre with all His jewellery and crown but the face changed to that of Bhagavan! On each of the deities around the main idol, Swami's picture in a small size appeared in the middle of the picture of each of the deities. I brought that photograph happily and kept it in our pooja. Soon someone presented us a picture of Ashtalakshmi.

This was in 2001 before we left for the USA. Then one day we noticed vibhuti on all photographs in pooja including these two as if someone had sprinkled vibhuti literally on them.

In 2005, we visited Vijaya Sathya Sai mandir in Anandbagh, Malkajgiri, Hyderabad. They gave us all a laddu each as prasadam. In the laddu given to my wife, a panchamukha rudraksha was found.'
