A group of
six devotees had come to have darshan of Baba from Australia .
Baba called them for a private interview.
During the normal
course of the talk, Baba looked at one of the devotees and asked -- “Why
did you come now. Your mother is not well. She needs you there back in
He replied saying--
“Yes Baba, I called home yesterday night and
this news was conveyed to me. I pray for her early recovery.”
Baba replied --
home soon. She is asking for you. In fact go home now.”
So saying, Baba
created a map of the world with the wave of the hand. He spread it on
the wall and the following conversation took place : --
“Where is Australia in this map ?”
Devotee : “Here,
Baba .” (Pointing to the map).
Baba touched it and
the world map changed into an Australian map.
“Where in Australia do you say ?”
Devotee : “New
South Wales, Baba .” (pointing to the map).
Baba touched it and
the Australian map changed into the map of New South Wales.
“Where in New South Wales do you say ?”
When the devotee
mentioned the place, Baba touched it and the chart changed to show all
the apartments in the area.
Then Baba touched
the house in which the man was staying and lo! the wall of
the interview room became the door of the devotee’s home.
Baba opened the door and showed the man his mother sleeping on the
sofa. Baba called the man and asked him to go in and closed the door.
He rubbed his hands on the door and the door became the wall of the
interview room again!
Later when the
Australians came out of the interview room, only five came out instead
of the six who went in. The students of Prashanthi Nilayam campus saw
this. Later they called back the man who was sent to Australia only an
hour later, who confirmed his ‘safe arrival’.
Baba said that ---
“Time and space
exist only in the worldly plane. In the divine plane there is no time
and space. I can easily cross time and space as and when I want to.
That experience of the Australian crossing space to reach Australia
from the interview room was my leela to show you that it is possible
for me to do that if necessary. Time and
space hold no barrier for GOD.”
