Mrs. Shilpi (25), a housewife from New Delhi, relates her experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan in her own words.

'I fell in love with Mr. Manohar Rao who was a south Indian. My parents who were North Indians did not object to the marriage. So was the case with the bridegroom's Mother. In fact, Mr. Manohar Rao, I understand, had not been inclined to marry. His mother was very much worried, as she could not bring him round to marry. She went to Shirdi and prayed. She is a devotee of Shirdi Sai and Sri Sathya Sai. She has always felt that both are one and the same. After her return from Shirdi, she was happy to find that her son had not only agreed to marry, but also selected a girl as his bride.

Though Mr. Rao agreed to marry me and though our parents consented, he could not decide on the date as he was then in financial difficulties. He offered a flat they had owned in New Delhi for sale as a solution to his problems, but none was coming forward to buy at a reasonable price. Our marriage was getting postponed on account of these things.

So as I knew that Mr. Rao has been a devotee of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai, I too prayed to Bhagavan on a Thursday, intensely, to bless us with early wedlock. This was at the end of April 2004. I prayed in the morning and Mr. Rao telephoned me from Delhi the same day in the evening to say that the flat was sold at a good price. Thanks to the grace of Bhagavan, we got married on May 11, 2004. After our marriage, we both came to Brindavan, Whitefields on the 19th and had Darshan of Bhagavan.

To be frank, I was not a Sai devotee before my marriage. But I have become one after Bhagavan answered my prayer for early wedlock so promptly.'
