Features | Experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan by Devotees | Group VII | Mr. T.V.Subba Rao

Mr. T.V.Subba Rao,
Retired Headmaster,
6-262 Sairam Margamu,
Behind RTC BUS Station,

         Mr. T.V.Subba Rao B.Sc.,B.A.,M.Ed was formerly Headmaster of the Eswaramma High School, Puttaparthi. After retirement from that school, he has settled at Puttaparthi. An ardent devotee of Bhagavan, he has had several experiences of the Divinity of Bhagavan, of which he narrates one in his own words.

'I joined as Headmaster, Smt. Eswaramma High School on 29-1- 1983. Soon after, we, the teachers, thought of seeding the pond below the statue of the revered Amma with lotus plants. The correspondent agreed to it, and we filled the pond with tank soil and sand, and planted the lotus plants. The first lotus flower we thought of presenting to Sri Swamivaru. The first lotus bud appeared and the following day it was to be presented to the Lord.

The next morning, I was asked to contact the D.E.O. and find out some information by the Chairman of the High School Committee Sri Ranganayakulu. I was, therefore, away from the school. So I instructed the then senior-most teacher Sri Anjaneyulu (the present Headmaster) to do the job, and the watchman Sri Kaimal to be ready to pluck the flower the moment when Sri Swamivaru entered the school gate and hand it over to the teacher. Thus far the arrangement was good.

At about 10 O'clock, Sri Swamivaru passed from Mandir directly towards Gokulam and returned the same way bypassing the school gate. Our teachers and staff were disappointed. But the benevolent Swami, after reaching the Institute's tower clock point, took a U turn and returned to enter the school gate when the teacher and the watchman alerted themselves. By the time the car reached the portico, they could receive Him and present the flower. All the teachers and staff could experience the ever present benevolent grace of Bhagavan.'
