VF of Syracuse, NY, Weed
California, Fayetteville Ark and Bangalore, India
VF lived in Syracuse with her 6
children. After doing a press release about federal antipoverty
money not going to the poor but to the rich, those affected by her
expose ran her out of town.
She moved to California where
someone handed her the Sam Sandweiss book "The Holy Man And the
Psychiatrist". She leaned her elbow on it as she sipped her drink
and received a shock which went up her arm. She decided to
investigate this person who could shock her long distance.
She went to India and decided
to take the highest path which is to surrender each action,
including when to leave the ashram, to Swami. However one day she
lapsed from this discipline, and left for town not having received
That day she was gored by a
bull and ended up in the hospital for 6 months. An astrologer
visiting her in the hospital told her that the day she was gored
was her death day.. and that Baba had saved her life. One day her
orders were from Baba that she should move to Arkansas.
She had no desire to do this.
Everyone she knew was in California, NY, or India. But she
obeyed.. and she bought a home near Fayetteville. After the deed
was signed, the realtor and the owner both broke into tears. The
house had been on the market for over a year and the following day
was foreclosure day.
She stayed for many months.
When she put down many roots of love, Baba gave her guidance she
could move back to India. She is presently living in Bangalore.
Her house in Arkansas she gave to another Sai devotee.
When EKB was studying for a
law exam at the Case Western Law Library, she smelled vibhuti. She
was not at that time a devotee... but recognized the smell having
been exposed to vibhuti before.
Marshall H of Baltimore had
suffered a great heartbreak before going to the ashram...the
breakup of a relationship with a devotee. Baba materialized for
him a pure crystal japamala.. and told him to wear it around his
neck.. that it would gradually take the pain out of his heart. He
said that the pain had gone.
