      Mr. T. Prabhakar Reddy (41), a businessman, relates a few of his experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan in his own words.

'One of my customers told me about Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. At that time they were constructing a mandir for Bhagavan. The customer was taking material for the mandir from me on credit. At the end, the payment made to me was short by Rs. one lakh. I could not say anything and had to put up with the loss all by myself. Within a year, my business picked up unimaginably and the loss was made good by increased profits. Since then, there has been no looking back for me owing to Swami's grace.

I have since then started to take part in service activities. Every year, during summer, I open and maintain chalivendra - a centre to offer drinking water to the needy.

In March this year, I had good profits. So, to thank Bhagavan, I came to Prasanthi Nilayam. In fact, I had no intention either to do seva or to stay on for a few days. But at the Ganesh gate, one person stopped me and asked 'have you come for seva?' I don't know what made me say 'yes. I do not have a scarf or an identity card' I told him. He said, 'go and get a passport size photograph from the studio'. I got the photograph and gave it to him. He phoned to our Samithi Convener and asked about my credentials. He must have had satisfactory answer. I became a sevadal as if some force had pushed me into seva.

It is only the grace of Swami that has made me stay on here for 15 days, that too, in seva.'
