“During Baba’s physical presence on this planet I experienced Baba’s Omnipresence many a time, which I have shared with Sai devotees in different articles in the past. But the purpose of sharing my experience this time is: How Swami established contact with my whole family and me after the Mahasamadhi.
A few months after He shed His mortal body; I received a phone call from Smt. Shalini-ji (wife of Sri C. Sreenivas from Bangalore) that a student of Sri Sathya Sai Institute, Sri Madhusudan, was receiving messages from directly Swami. Initially, they could not believe that it was possible, but when they met him due to certain messages that were given to them, which were known only to them and Swami, they were convinced that there was a person who had been chosen as a ‘communicator’ by Swami to carry on the work for serving humanity.
Last year, in the month of November 2013, Baba came to my home. During our conversation, He asked me, “What are you doing on 23rd November?” I said, “Swami, I am free.” He said, “Both you and your wife go to Puttaparthi to have samadhi darshan and on the 24th morning, come to Muddenahalli. You can leave for Mumbai in the evening.” I immediately booked our tickets. We went to Puttaparthi. We had a wonderful experience sitting at the samadhi on the Birthday of Swami. After darshan, we left for Muddenahalli. The moment I entered that place, I could feel a Divine Energy all over. Then, we were taken to Baba’s residence for an Interview. I felt as if we were back to earlier times, when following Baba’s birthday we would to have an Interview on 24th November. Madhusudhan-ji took us inside the room. Baba started communicating to us through Madhu-ji and blessed us. “Whenever you came on My Birthday, I used to give you an Interview the next day. Now I am here, so I called you for an Interview, this time in Muddenahalli.” As usual, many personal things were discussed, which only Swami would know about, and we were overjoyed with this unbelievable experience. We returned to Mumbai totally energised with the feeling that Swami was with us!
I feel that Baba is proclaiming to the world that His work to serve humanity will not stop, even though He is not in the physical body. Whether it is opening new hospitals and new schools or helping needy people, everything is going on as before. I think that He is maintaining a continuous link with us all over world, until He comes back again as Prema Sai!”
