I wish to share with you all our Sunday, 04/25/04, Baba's Morning Darshan
Parents came from Visakhapatnam for a short visit to Bangalore (for 4
days). Mother is not well. She is not able to walk freely. She has fear
that she may fall down if she walks. Her Body is Shaking. No Strength in
her. They came Yesterday to Bangalore. Parents are eager to have Swamy's
It is a real pleasure to visit Swamy along with my Mother & Father, who
are my Teachers in Life. Swamy Granted me this boon to have his Darshan
with them today.
Last year on Sri Rama Navami day, with Parents, Wife, and children visited
Whitefield for Swamy's Darshan. During my last week Swamy's Darshan time,
I recollected that visit and thought I missed that opportunity this year
Sri Rama Navami, as Swamy was at Puttaparthi, and parents are at
Visakhapatnam. Perhaps Swamy heard my prayers, and send them to me today.
We started from Mathikere (Bangalore) around 5.30am, and reached Brindavan
Ashram around 6.20am. Mother cannot walk alone. I asked my wife to come
with us to accompany mother. But, my wife did not accompany me, as she has
to take care, to send children to coaching Centre around 8.30am.
I left it to Swamy to take care of my Mother.
Just before Kadugudi Railway Crossing, A lady devotee waved her hand
asking us to give Lift. I stopped the Car, and took her with us. I was
wondering at that time why she asked lift for this short Distance. But
later I realised, that Swamy through her took care of my mother. That lady
devotee helped my mother to enter Sai Ramesh Hall, and made my mother to
sit on the Platform chars. Thank you sairam for this help.
Today No Huge Crowds. People are entering Sai Ramesh Hall. Me and my
Father sat in right side Men's aisle, some where in the Middle. I prayed
Swamy for good darshan.
Music started at 7.45am, followed by three Omkars and bhajans. Swamy came
to Sai Ramesh Hall around 7.45am. Swamy came in HIS car, got down at the
ladies side of the entrance, where thoranam was tied. HE walked towards
the boys after talking to one or two people. Now HE reached boys, talking
to a few and continuing the straight path, having crossed the central
aisle. Talked to some former students and headed towards the stage. He
moved to the stage, and the Bhajans continued.
Swamy sat in Chair for 20 minutes listened to four or five bhajans, and
then he got up and HE is leaving. Time is 8.15 am only. Very Short Darshan
HE walked towards the ladies' side of the stage. The car came into SR
Hall. But Swamy preferred to walk through devotees. He got down from the
stage and walked towards the Devotees Sitting outside, or Kalyan Mandap?
The ladies side devotees stood up and were eager to grab a glance of Swamy.
We are cut off from what is going on the otherside.
After 10 minutes Swamy left to Trayee Brindavan in his CAR.
Lot of people got up as Swamy left for the day. We sat in Hall for some
more time, and tried to absorb Swamy's Vibrations closing eyes.
Suddenly heard some excitement and when open eyes, Bhagawan appeared on
the stage. Wondered, Surprised, and Shocked. Swamy is smiling. I felt that
as Bala Gopala, Swamy is mischievous, and enjoying seeing devotees
confusion (when they saw him unexpectedly). It is real gift he gave again
There are gaps in my front created by devotees going out. I lost no time
to go to the front holding my fathers hand. Sat where we could see Swamy
closely. Swamy is enjoying bhajans and rhythmically tapping HIS hand. It
was a beautiful sight. Bhajans picked up momentum.
Swamy sat for 4/5 songs. Then HE spoke to some boys down the stage. There
were two boys to offer aarati and rose with folded hands. Swamy allowed
for aarati. Two people with aarati came to dias. Swamy got up. 'Om jai
Jagadeesh hare.... going on and Swamy left the Hall through the back door.
Bhajan singing continued after aarati.
This is a departure from usual Sunday morning Darshan, where usually there
is no aarati in the morning, and Bhajans conclude with aarati in the
Perhaps Swamy wanted to make us happy, and he knows that my parents and me
are leaving after the Darshan. Thus HIS love knows no bounds and HE makes
people happy breaking his norms.
Today Swamy appeared very energetic, and bright. He walked faster on his
own, without support.
Later came to know, that there was Narayan Seva today and Swamy gone near
the Kalyan Mandap and served food.
Swamy later helped my mother in ladies canteen, through other devotee, to
collect and serve Breakfast to my mother.
A happy and Lovely Darshan Today. Thank you Sai Ram.
Jai Sai Ram.

Date: Sunday, 04/11/04 Baba’s Morning Darshan At
Though set alarm at 4.45am. I woke up at 6.15 am. Slept deeply, and did
not notice the Alarm ringing. Got ready by 6.30am and started by scooter
to Whitefield. Did not take car, as I am alone, and finding Parking slot
Started from Home in Mathikere-Bangalore at 6.30am, and Reached Whitefield
around 7.30am. For Sunday Darshan better to be at Brindavan by 6.30am to
get into token Que. As I came late, and today being Sunday, If I get
Swamy’s Darshan it is his Grace only. Deposited my Bag in cloak room while
the line I moving towards the Ashram Entrance gate. Now shoes and chappals
to be left outside the Ashram only. Two Shoe Stands are placed. Left the
Shoes near the Wall. The Line is not moving and stopped outside Brindavan
gate. Waited for some time in Line. Then came to the Gate to find the
reason. Surprise. No Place to devotees in Brindawan Darshan Hall, and
hence Queue stalled.
Today our Bangalore Vedic Group's common monthly practice is scheduled in
Sai Kalyana Mantapam after morning darshan. After that our Indira Nagar
Sai-Darshan Veda team arranged a program to go to Kolar 70 km away from
Bangalore, for Vedic Chant in one of its member Radha’s new-house,
followed by some visits to famous Vinayaka Temple, Anjaneya Temple, and
KotiLinga Temples in that Place.
Requested sevadal at Gate and entered Sai Ramesh Hall. The entire place is
full with devotees. Stood in Queue. Surprisingly we are asked to move to
right side aisle of S R Hall. Entered Sai Ramesh Hall, and Sat at end of
Sai Ramesh Hall (S R Hall) in extreme right side aisle. But, the view to
Swamy's Dias in Sai Ramesh Hall is completely blocked with the old people
sitting in raised platform extreme right side of the S R Hall. Hence,
moved to front, where there is a opening for people to enter S R Hall, and
no blockage for view. Men's central aisle is full of Sai Youth in Saffron
Scarf. I came to know that there are 3000 youth came from Kerala today,
and all are given preference to sit in Sai Ramesh Hall. Brindavan campus
wore a festive look today and the campus was full of Kerala devotees.
There was no place for the usual devotees to sit inside Sai Ramesh Hall
Central aisle. Even the VIPs were shifted to far right side beyond the
Swamy Came at 8.15am, and got down from the Car near Ladies side Entrance.
Swamy walked straight to Stage. Looking at the Devotees, slowly Sat in
chair. The Kerala State President then took Swami's permission and spoke
to the audience. This was followed by one of the student's address to the
audience. It was wonderful to listen the student, and his experiences with
Swamy. He mentioned about a dream which he had in which Swami gave him the
"meaning" of "Hold on to me".
Then came the beautiful surprise to all devotees. Swami gave a discourse
to all devotees. The theme was "Protect Satya, and live for Sathya". Swamy
says when you live in Satya, Then you don't have to do anything for Dharma
because Sathya looks after everything. Swamy talked on what God is and
where you can see him? and how to adherence to Sathya, and attain God
realization. Swamy talked from 8.30am to 9.30am. They announced that
Sadhana Camp of the Kerala Youth is scheduled in SaiKalyana Mantapam at
After Darshan while standing at the Entrance of Hall, I could see the
ocean of people moving out. I never saw such a Huge Crowd in Brindavan.
What is happening? Is it an indication that the Crowds will increase
exponentially here after as told by Swamy earlier.
After Darshan I met my Veda Group members. The scheduled Veda Chanting
program in Sai-Kalyana Mantapam, Brindavan is cancelled, due to the
sadhana Camp of the Kerala Youth scheduled in SaiKalyana Mantapam at
10.00am. Our Veda Chanting practice in Sai-Kalyana Mantapam, is cancelled
for today, and our Indira Nagar Sai-Darshan Veda team proceeded to Kolar
in the KSRTC Bus hired for the Koti Lingeswara swamy temples visit.
It is a blessing to see Shanmukha Sai (Chennai) with us in the bus, as our
Veda Guru Kumar’s Guest. Shanmukha Sai (Chennai) is Swamy's Close circle
devotee, and I was told that Our Swamy accepted the yellow dress given by
Shanmukha Sai and wore it on Sivaratri Day. After our Koti Lingeswara
Temple Visit we reached Whitefield at 7.30 pm. Lot of Busses stalled
outside Ashram, and picking up Kerala Devotees.
After attending the Vibration Healing Class at 9.00pm, I reached back
Home at 10.30 hrs.
Thank you Swamy for blessed me with a nice Sunday, and is able to hear
Swamy's Discourse, after Darshanam, and a Nice Satsanga at Kolar.
Pardon me if any mistakes in this due to my poor editing, or due to my mis
