  • Blessings of H.H. Narasimha Swamiji on the Auspicious Day of

    Makara Sankaranthi on 15-1-1988   "

    By Baba's grace I had the privilege of associating myself with poojya Narasimha Swamiji during 1942 or so, when he came to Hubli and delivered a lecture on the life and teachings of Sri Sai Baba of Shiridi.

    After the meeting was over, we devotees prostrated at His lotus feet. He blessed and gave,us Baba's colour photo, small books about Baba and Baba's udhi. Since then I have been regularly visiting
    All India Sai Samaj, Mylapore, Madras receiving His blessings.

    In 1951 when H.H. Narasimha Swamiji and Radhakrishna Swamiji conducted the All India Sai Devotees' Convention at Dharwar, I worked as a volunteer and came more close to Him. Swamiji was most attached to my late father along with whom I used to distribute Sai Sudha every month till His Nirvana in November 1956 and other Sai magazines free of cost. I had many experiences with Swamiji but due to want of time I narrate one incident which happened in 1988.

    By Baba's grace I participated in the Guru Poornima celebrations at All India Sai Samaj Madras, The late Sri Gopala Krishna Bhagavathar of Pududkottai with his disciples conducted the pooja and Bhajan in the morning on that day. After the Arati, I prostrated before Swamiji and he blessed me, gave me the booklet 'Sai pooja vidhi' (specially written by Swamiji) to be releaed on that auspicious day for the benefit of the devotees, and advised me to do Sai pooja daily as per instructions contained in that book. Since then I have been doing Guru pooja and on 15-1-88 Makara Sankaranthi day I did pooja to Guru and after that I had a nap. All of a sudden the fragrance of dhuni shrouded around me and in the dream I opened my eyes. Swamiji was before me. I immediately prostrated before him. (The dream was so realistic. It was actually a vision). He told me that Sai is very much pleased with my sincere devotion and asked me to continue my pooja and meditation. Both Shri Sai Baba and H.H. Narasimha Swamiji are the same in spirit, though they have different forms. They are Apantaratmas, ever living with us and guiding us in our day-to-day life, and helping us ultimately to attain self-realisation.

    I leave to the  readers to imagine  what  infinite joy one may have when he gets sakshatkara of Baba and our Gurudev H.H. Narasimha Swamiji.




    Let us pray at the feet of Sai Baba who is the incarnation of all gods and protector of all, to show mercy on us, and increase our devotion towards him.
    A Person, who has controlled his mind, can achieve any success in his life. How far you are trying to control your mind?
    The mind that judges not others ever remains tension-free.
