Mr. Ravinder Sharma, narrates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagvan in his own words.

'I came to Prasanthi Nilayam in 1984 for the first time with family as sevadal. During darshan, Bhagavan appeared to me like growing morning sun. I had padanamaskar when I felt that the inner part of my body was energised and enlightened.

In 1990, while I was sleeping in my house, at about 4 a.m., someone patted me on my shoulder and awakened me. 'Get up', a male voice told me, 'it is time for suprabhatham'. I got up and opened my eyes. I was stunned. Right before me was Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in flesh and blood. As I was getting up in consternation, He disappeared.

Since then I have felt His presence many times. Every time, it is indicated by sweet fragrance that suddenly pervades the vicinity. I felt it while going in a bus once; in my house, another time; like that it happened several times.

When I sit with closed eyes and try to meditate, I see Bhagavan's image sometimes.

My son applied for admission to the Fine Arts College in Chandigarh. He had not secured enough marks to get admission. The competition was tough. So, I was very much worried. I went to bhajan and prayed to Bhagavan to come to his help. When I closed my eyes and was praying to Bhagavan, I saw His lovely Lotus Feet in front of me, indicating that my son would get the seat. Next morning, a notice was put in the college with my son's name in the list of selected candidates. My son joined the college and topped in the University in his professional degree course.

I was looking for a suitable alliance for my daughter. We saw boys in many families, but none of them came up to our satisfaction. So I was very much worried and left the matter to Bhagavan's grace. One day, on receiving a telephonic call, we went to see one boy and his family. We found the boy and his family very good and beyond our expectation. On returning to my house, I touched Bhagavan's Lotus Feet, in one life-size portrait in my house, for seeking his grace and help. To our surprise, when the boy and his family came to see my daughter, they agreed to the matrimonial proposal which was not possible without the divine motivation of Bhagavan. The marriage has been fixed for December 10, 2005. Now I have come as a sevadal this month for seva as well as to seek His benediction for successful conduct of the marriage.'
