Features | Experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan by Devotees | Group I | Mr. Sarma Garigipati

Mr. Sarma Garigipati.

Mr. Sriramalinga Sarma Garigipati, aged 44 years, has been working in an Oil Company in Abudhabi. He works offshore and onshore depending upon the place of posting. A devotee of Bhagavan, he narrates an experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

This incident happened in 1999-2000.I was working 'Offshore' in UAE for an Oil Company. Since I knew a little bit about Bhagavan & puttaparthi, I used to share my views & exchange ideas with one of my colleagues Mr. G.L.S.Rao who is an ardent devotee of Shirdi Sai.

One day as usual we were discussing. He asked me 'Is there any book to know about miracles or something more about Bhagavan?' I told him there are quite a number of books, but I am not sure of any titles. But one of the authors was 'Howard Murphet'. My father read this book suggested by some one, and he became the devotee of Bhagavan after reading & feeling some experiences. Then my friend asked me, 'do you have that book right now?' I told him, 'no. Usually I'll not carry any books during this period of work specially in a country like this'.

Our discussion was over and we both went for dinner and I went to my room. After a few hours, my friend called me and asked, 'please repeat the author's name of the book, which you are talking'. I repeated. He called me to his room again. Since it is very nearby, I went. To my surprise... 'the book is lying on his desk'. Both of us were spellbound and experienced joy & surprise. Then I really realized that Swami is Omnipresent and He hears what we talk and sees what we do.
