Anantapur Campus.

Ms. S.V. Karuna Priya, a student of the third year B.Sc. (Hons) of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Anantapur Campus narrates her experience of the Divinity of Bhagavan in her own words.

'My father runs general stores which he manages completely on his own. For many months, my father had an injury in his left foot because of which he was unable to do his daily chores. Because of his hectic schedule, he had neglected it. It became more and more painful day by day. It became difficult for him to walk. Even then he did not approach any doctor. One day when the pain became excruciating, he smeared vibhuti on the wound; for he believed that it was the panacea for all diseases. But, instead of getting healed, the wound became even more painful and blood started oozing out. Till then he could at least manage to walk on his toes. Now, he was unable to put his foot on the floor. Even with that great pain my father continued all his work.

One Sunday evening, my father's friend Sri Krishna came to our house on his scooter, and asked my father if he wished to accompany him for bhajans. Despite his pain, my father got ready, and both of them went to attend the bhajans in the M.V.P Bhajan Mandal in Visakhapatnam. There they had to stop the vehicle outside the mandir, and walk that little distance without sandals. Slowly, my father went and sat inside the bhajan hall. Throughout the bhajans he was deeply engrossed in thoughts of Bhagavan, and nothing else occurred to him. He had even forgotten his pain. After the bhajans were over, as usual, he got up and, along with others, walked out of the bhajan hall. He even walked the little distance from the bhajan hall to the gate of the mandir with his feet resting on the ground fully. He reached home and started walking as usual without even a trace of pain in his foot. After two days, that evening, he sat in the portico of our house and happened to touch his left foot. To his astonishment there was not even a scar of the wound present!'
