Features | Experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan by Devotees | Group VII | Mr. Ramakishen Sarma

Mr. Ramakishen Sarma,
Kishen Ki Kheri,
Bilwara - 311 001,

      Mr. Ramakishen Sarma (40), a worker in a business establishment, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'In 1999, my daughter Anuradha used to go to Balvikas classes. She brought a photograph of Bhagavan, and kept it in her bookshelf. I used to chide her for wasting her time on all such activities.

One day she could not tolerate my criticising Baba like that.

'You keep your faith in Him' she told me, 'you will yourself experience His miracles.'

'Ok' I retorted, 'let me see how your God will justify your faith.'

I prayed to Bhagavan sincerely.

'If you are God' I prayed to Him in my mind, 'show me some proof.'

I was a chain-smoker then. I used to smoke as many as 30 cigarettes, if not more, everyday. I was also in financial troubles.

That very night, Bhagavan came in my dream. I had not seen Him earlier. Even the photograph my daughter had in her bookshelf was too small to make out His features. He had bushy hair on His head in my dream and a blissful smile on His face. He placed His hand on my head and softly moved it as if He was caressing me with love. I could experience the bliss of His compassion and love by His mere touch even in my dream.

'You are smoking too many cigarettes' Swami told me, 'why don't you give it up. It will help you if you give it up. I will take care of you.'

The dream ended. But I was still in the hangover of His blissful touch. I was experiencing inexplicable ananda. I felt that the whole thing was real, not a dream. Since that moment, I have not touched the cigarette again. I did not care about my financial troubles. But miraculously, my finances improved. There has been no looking back for me from that day. Whenever I think of that dream, I relive those blissful moments feeling His Divine touch on my head even now.'
