The highest dharma of man is to attain God. Only actions that are performed with this goal can be said to be dharmic. All else is adharma, unrighteousness.

BLESSINGS OF GREAT SEERS

 

Veda Vyasa’s Darshan

2nd April, 1996


An effulgent light appears before me, a saint emerges out of it. My intuition tells me that it is Sage Vyasa. I prostrate before him and offer a lotus flower at his feet. I say, “Vyasa Maharishi! Please bless me to win the great love of Krishna.” Placing his hand on my head, the sage says, “You have pure love for Kanha, you will experience His love more and more.”
I could not forget the vision.

I wanted some proof. I prayed Swami, “Give me a proof for this vision,” and opened the ‘ Bhagavad Gita. There Lord Krishna declares, “...Iam Vyasa among sages...

 

Narada’s Darshan

6th May, 1996 Morning meditation.


I see sage Narada descending from the celestial world. I prostrate at his feet with tears in my eyes; my hair stands on end. I cry, “Maharishi! Give me deep devotion towards Bhagavan. The name of Lord Narayan and you are inseparable. Like this, the Lord’s name should not leave my tongue. Will I devote my life like Radha whom you have seen at Gokulam?”

The sage replies, “You are that Radha born again on this earth.” He asks me to show my tongue and writes the mantra,‘Om Namo Narayanaya Namaha’. He writes the words as above from the back of the tongue to the tip and disappears.

I was stunned and dazed. Wanting proof for this, I randomly opened the Summer Showers 1995 on Srimad Bhagavatham. The glory of the Lord’s name was explained in a unique way:
‘Faith in God alone should be our very breath. You may undergo any sort of suffering but never forget to chant His name’.

What a wonderful proof for Sage Narada writing the mantra on my tongue! One more quotation from the same book would be suitable in this context: ‘The name Krishna is much sweeter than names like Huri, Narayana and Vishnu. Similarly, the name Radha is sweeter than Lakshmi, Durga, Saraswathi, Rukmini and Sathyabama. What two words are easiest to say and sweetest as well? Radha and Krishna.’

How wonderful it is that Swami Himself has written these words in the Bhagavatham.

Still my mind was not clear regarding Narada’s  darshan,so I wrote two chits with the word ‘True’ on one and ‘False’ on another. I picked one and the answer was ‘True.’ After all, it  is a human mind! Doubting mind! It is asking for proofs again and again.

One day I prayed to Swami, “Narada Maharishi wrote on my tongue, shouldn’t You also write?” Swami asked me to show my tongue and wrote the Mahamantra, ‘Om Sai Ram’. Still doubting, I prayed saying, “If it is true, please give some vibhuthi Swami.” At once some vibhuthi appeared on the padukas.


Viswamitra’s Darshan

20th August, 1996

 

I see Viswamitra, the one who gave the Gayatri mantra to the world. I fall at his feet reciting the sloka, ‘Bootha Bhavya Bhavat Prabhu Sri Prasanthi Sai’. He blesses me saying, “You have surrendered fully to Sai, I bless you.” Oh Lord! What unique grace is this! How fortunate I am! surrendering to this great Lord Sai, how many unimaginable darshans have I had! Oh Lord! I get your grace every moment, even without asking. Am I worthy of Your compassion! Who can understand Your great mercy?

When Sanathana Sarathi came, I saw that Swami had spoken extensively about Sage Viswamitra. He also had narrated story of King Parikshit; the King says, “I am very much blessed. As I was reading this line, three sugar candies fell from lord Rama’s picture along with the very fragrant smell of vibhuthi. I was in great bliss.

 

Uddhava’s Darshan

11th September, 1996

 

I see a blue aura and a figure clad in yellow silk appears, but it is not Krishna. My intuition tells me that it is Uddhava. He is in an ochre robe, with hair flowing down to his shoulders. I worship him with blissful tears, praying, “I want Prema bhakthi like Radha’s Prema bhakthi.” He blesses and says “Oh Stree ratna, gem  amongst women, your wish will be fulfilled!”
I cannot imagine these unbelievable scenes even in my dreams. How did I experience all these things? It is because of the infinite grace of Bhagavan. Is it not?

 

Ramakrishna and Vivekananda’s Darshan

5th June, 1996

 

In meditation, I see Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Swami Vivekananda, standing before me. It gives me great bliss to see them. The Paramahamsa touches my head slightly and goes into samadhi. I fall down and cry, “Kanha!” I pray with folded hands. A few moments pass.... Sri Ramakrishna speaks two words, “Rare soul, Mumukshu” and then disappears. Wanting a proof for this, I opened Swami’s book Chinnakatha. There I found the words, “You live only to seek and go on seeking.” I shed joyful tears, saying, “Swami! Swami!”

I wanted proof for the vision, I opened Srimad Bhagavatham of Ramakrishna ashram. Paramahamsa gives an explanation for the word Mumukshu,

When one surrenders everything to Krishna, he is not affected by any sin. This is the transcendental state, he is a Mumukshu. The state of Yogis and Siddhas is lower to Mumukshus and in no way equal to them. Gopis were Mumukshus. When Prema has gone to the extent of destroying the body itself, why talk about the body?

After satisfying myself with the above explanation, I wanted proof regarding Paramahamsa’s comment on Mumukshu; I opened a Bal Vikas text book. The title of the book is divine path,, page 18 ...’Sadanachadushtayam’ means four kinds of sadhanas

They are:

1. Wisdom
2. Dispassion
3. Shutsampathi
4. Mumukshatvam

Paramahamsa would fall on the ground and cry unbearably at the end of every day saying it was wasted without  darshan of his Divine Mother. In the same way, I too cry every night  “I did not get the darshan of Krishna, the day is wasted. Next day I would wake up with renewed hope, “Atleast  today I will get the darshan of Krishna.”

I composed a song lamenting like this...

Faith in the morning, tears end the evening
What life is this?
Seeking Him, searching Him
I cry every moment...
What life is this?

 

Vishwaroopam

6th April, 1998

 

After chanting Gayatri, I started chanting ‘Om Namo Narayana’. Then I saw the Krishna idol growing slowly and ultimately taking the Vishwaroopa of bhagawan. Wherevere I looked, I saw His hands, feet and heads. I offered my salutations with folded hands. It expanded to the extent that I could not see it fully. Then Swami arrived.

Swami said: 

My eyes watch everyone everywhere. Without leaving a minutest gap, I exist everywhere. I am all pervading. I especially reside in your heart. Your heart is My favourite place. Being so, why do you allow your mind to wander to whitefield and Kodiakanal? When I reside in every place why do you crave to see Me in particular places?

 

In that vision, His feet were taller than my height! All worlds and creations rushed in to His open mouth! I felt that His form was that of Kaala Purusha, the God of Time.

 

Swami's Parents blessing

30th July, 1996

 

Swami’s mother, Easwaramma and his father, Venkappa Raju appear before me, I bow down at their feet. I say, “Mother! You gave birth to the master of the world. Mother Devki gave birth to Krishna, but He did not live with her. Yashoda was not the mother of Krishna, but she was fortunate to be near Kanha and enjoy His leelas. Oh Mother Easwaramma, you are blessed to play the roles of both Devki and Yashoda!”

“O Father! Like You, the whole world aspires to have an avatar as their child You enjoy the bliss of both Vasudeva and Nanda gopa.”

I praise them like this.

Mother Easwaramma tells,” You are also a fortunate woman because the same avatar is pouring so much love on you.”

While talking, Swami comes. Father Venkappa Raju blesses me and says, ‘Deerga Sumangali Bhava.” These words of Swami’s father make me laugh.

Swami     :         Why do you laugh?

Vasantha :         Father’s blessings seem funny to me. So I laughed. Swami you have said that I am butter, You have swallowed the butter and it has dissolved in Your blood. In that case am I not the one who is in the blood of the  eternal soul, also eternal?

Swami is embarrassed and stunned by my answer.

 

Swami in Heaven

21 January, 1996

 

I had a wonderful vision.

Swami takes me to cosmic space and shows many scenes. The earth is rotating and many planets are there. Swami takes me to a luminescent place and says, “ Sathya Loka”. I see Lord Brahma in shining light seated on a golden lotus. Saraswati Devi in her white dress is near him playing Veena. I am stunned and even forget to pay my obeisance to them.

Next, there is a beautiful garden. Lord Shiva is sitting on an altar. Parvati Devi, the embodiment of beauty walks towards Him and stands near Him. In front of them, there is a big shiva lingam. Swami says, “ This is Kailash.”

Then Swami takes me to another place and says, “This is Vaikuntha.” Lord Narayana is lying on adishesha, goddess Mahalakshmi is doing padaseva at the holy feet. I run towards them and fall at their divine feet. I cry, “Mother! Mother!” The call bursts from the core of my heart. Mahalakshmi blesses me. Suddenly, the face of Lord narayana changes to that of Swami. Then I turn to look if Swami is there but he is not there. I again fall at the Lord’s feet and cry. Then Swami appears and with a smiling face blesses me.

 

Sai In Every Drop of Blood

21 September, 1995

 

I had a doubt. Can I attain God without doing penance? Look at the people in Nara Narayana Guha Ashram. When compared o their tapas, what of my devotion? Have I surrendered myself fully? I cried that Bhagawan should tell in His own words if I am worthy of His grace. Many thoughts like this whirled in my mind and tormented me. At the peak of agony, I had a vision.

I see my body in front of me. I see my blood vessels just as a doctor would see through a microscope. The blood cells have numerous small forms of Bhagawan circulating throughout the body. Swami says, “See! Your entire body is pervaded by My form.”

SACRED NADI READINGS

Released on 1st Jan 2014

In this book, we have seen God's great mysterious unfolding drama. Just as each person has their own point of view, the saints, sages and siddhas have written according to their viewpoint, angle and the extent of Truth revealed to them. Though each nadi is different, all describe the same events, but with the individual emphasis of the sage or siddha. Four main themes run throughout the nadis:

1.      Swami returns in the Sathya Sai form.
2.      Amma is Swami's Shakthi.
3.      Amma's body merges as a jyothi with Swami.
4.      The coming of the Sathya Yuga, the Golden Age and Prema Sai happens.
