As we sit in the temples and the halls, again we will see our Baba slowly walking and smiling at everyone.
Initially when I first met swami I wanted to capture Him in my heart and tried very hard to do it. Finally through His grace I got the blessing.
Swami had a very strong magnetic personality which could easily draw us and still of our minds. Though it may seem that He is absent we can still see Him with a little faith, love and patience. He now lives in our hearts forever.
Om Sai Ram
The expirience must be amazing.My mother always tells me about the charismatic personality of Sai Baba,how magnetic he was
Yes there would be singer and dancers performing but the devotees would be turning their face and staring a Baba instead. It was only natural like metal attracted to the magnet, we were quite helpless. Often prasadam and laddus etc would be distributed to all, and swami too would personally serve with the volunteers. sometimes food etc would be distributed.
His love was only for the devotees and nothing for himself for he ate only once a day and even that he hardly tasted. Mentally he would communicate with many and sometimes even overseas. Distance was no barrier to Him.
He spoke volumes in his quiet silence.
Baba's physical frame was was only for the sake of His devotees, and Himself was far beyond all barriers. I still feel the same presense eventhough He is not physically on earth. His watchful eyes does not blink. they had a beautiful bright glow.
Of course some of the devotees behaved in strange ways, but then such is the world. One day okay and the next day crazy.
Swami never cared about quantity he only cared for quality of deveotees.
He discussed with each person according to their own mental or spiritual capacity.
