Swami and Students
One student told Bhagawan that his mother was not well and that he
would be leaving the next day. Bhagawan told him not to worry and
that He would give the boy prasadam when he left. Next morning, at
Dharshan time, Bhagawan didn't give the boy any Prasadam.So, he
was confused as to what to do. He went back to his room after
Dharshan, packed his luggage and got ready to leave. Bhagawan had
finished the interview and sent word for the boy. The boy sprinted
amidst the wonderstruck crowd into the Trayee building, where
Bhagawan gave Him vibhuthi. Later, Bhagawan took him inside and
talked to him. He gave him an air ticket and sent him to the
airport in His own car per arrangements already made for his
In October 1999, one day Bhagawan sent an instruction that there
would be no more discourses. This sent a wave of sorrow amongst
all. Bhagawan told that since no one was practicing His words, His
talking was of no use. The next day, the INTERNET brought this out
criticising the students as the cause for all this. That day
Bhagawan, in His Divine Discourse, mentioned all this. He told, "My
students are good. Who are they to criticise all my students?"
What a shower of Love that was!
This incident occured around 6-7 years back. It so happened that
Bhagawan was not talking to the boys. So, they felt sad and some
of them even decided that they wouldn't take food. It continued
for 3 days. On the 4th day, a teacher reported this to Bhagawan.
Bhagawan replied, "Tell the boys that such practices won't make
Bhagawan happy. Tell them that even Bhagawan has not taken food
for these three days." If we sincerely concentrate, we'll find
that every moment on this earth is a miracle enacted by our Sai.
He is there within us every moment. When we cry, He cries with us.
When we are happy, He is also happy. Such is the love of our Lord.
What can explain Your Love? Please bless us that we remain
forever in You, with You and for You. The bond, which exists
between us, is the bond of Love, and Love alone. Mother, You are
ours and we are Yours. Utilise and treat us and shape us as You
will. We are for You and You are for us.
