The Sixth Sense of Sensei

Sreejith Narayan

Incredible near-prophetic revelations on the Sri Sathya Sai Avatar 

David Steadman Davies who was known to many as Sensei (meaning Teacher in Japanese) was an exceptional teacher of the arts of Judo, Aikido and Yoga and reached unprecedented spiritual heights to be revered as a Great Master. Sensei was born in Wales in the year 1925. He had realized his purpose in life at the age of twelve and as a young man of eighteen, travelled to India and Korea while serving in the army. His deep understanding of spiritual concepts came as the result of meeting with some Spiritual giants and Great Masters along the way.

His personal quest for a Spiritual Teacher ended when he met Sri Sathya Sai Baba. When he heard that Sai Baba was an Avatar or God in human form, he knew that this was the Truth, there was no doubt within him. He did not have to look back since; God was walking this earth!

Sensei left his body on August 9, 2010 by a Yogic practice called Jal-Samadhi (leaving the body in water). A series of interviews that he gave between the years 2007 and 2008 have been published as a book "Afternoon Tea with Sensei" by Kathy Haler. In those interviews Sensei made some incredible near-prophetic revelations on the Sri Sathya Sai Avatar.

It is worthwhile to note that the below statements by Sensei were made almost four years before the unanticipated twist came in the Divine Drama. May be for Sensei it was not so "unanticipated" after all?

Sensei - David Steadman Davies 

In STKC, certain assumptions were made based on Swami's own words that He was taking on the world's karma and that Swami's reappearance after leaving His body could be the "revelation of the true power of God" that He was referring to in some of His words. Here I provide a vis-a-vis disposition of Sensei's words and the comparative excerpts from STKC.

Baba taking on world karma

"Baba is taking on world karma, taking on the negative vibrations that have built over centuries, that is why His body is as it is now. One day Baba will do something about this world's karma... He will blast it to smithereens”- Sensei, 2008

“[...]How can we even attempt to comprehend the amount of karma that the Loving Lord took upon Himself for those twenty-eight days that He was in the hospital? And this is not counting the many days, weeks and months before that when He was said to be silently enduring!”- STKC

Near-prophetic words!

"I feel that in the year 2012 or there about, Baba will do something so magnificent in its grandeur and beneficence that people will stop and turn around[…]I feel that when Baba wills that the heart chakra of humanity to open, 95% of the people will accept His will”. - Sensei, 2008

"In this age of rampant evil and disharmony, in my opinion, only a miracle of such magnanimous proportion (as His Return) can uproot the evil and turn the attention of people towards God". - STKC

Sathya Sai is the most powerful of the Sai Trinity

"After Sathya Sai Baba, Prema Sai Baba will come. Prema Sai will not come as a Full Blown Avatar for He will not need all (the power) that He needs now in this (Sathya Sai) Incarnation. He would have already taken on the heaviest load of Karma (in Sathya Sai Avatar) and the human race would be back on the path, the path of right-living, compassion, truth and non-violence. The last Full-blown Avatar was Krishna. Avatars bring only what is needed. Shirdi Sai did not need all (powers) that Sathya Sai brought with Him this time around. Sathya Sai Baba is the sum total of everything!"  - Sensei, 2007

"Swami has indicated directly and sometimes indirectly that the world would already be peaceful when Prema Sai arrives". - STKC

Now we wait for that magnificent moment mentioned in Sensei's words....which in its grandeur  and beneficence  will make the whole world stop and turn around!

I am amazed that with no "RSS feed" or something like that, after several weeks I return to your blog eager for a new post just one hour after you have posted this new article!

I feel happy by understanding this fact as a "signal" that I may be well tuned and "connected"...

During the last months, I have gradually increased the feeling that the so-called "magnificent moment", whathever it is, is closer and closer, very very near.

It is also curious that I feel that it does not matter at all what will happen or not happen in the world and with the world, as long as ME, the single "MYSELF", will indeed LIVE what can be described as "seeing Swami on everything and everyone, everywhere, at all times" - and as we are creators of our realities, this MAY be His reappearance to ME.

Anyway... the more we FEEL THE PRESENCE, the more fullfilled with this pure bliss we are.

These may sound as egoistic claims, but is is not.

The lack of faith I'm seeing in others may be making my own faith stronger - as a "self-defense" response mechanism. While the "outer world" may seem "worse" each day... maybe this is just "the truth being revealed" due to the power of justice and our communications' technology... at the same time, more and more people is awakening... and I feel more and more "God's Joy" - this bliss which has no reason, no interest, no beginning, no end, no purpose... it just IS.

I do little meditation. But the few minutes I do, it is deep, sincere and blissfull. This is one decision I've made... instead of struggling with my monkey mind, wasting time which could be spent in more useful "service" activities... instead of forcing myself to "meditate" 10 or 15 minutes... no, I just "jump deep", quickly dive in the depths of known past experiences, and stay there while I can... 10 seconds? 1 minute? 3 minutes? does not matter it is quick... once I'm out I happilly embrace that quick but joyful genuine experience, and consider the "meditation" finished. So, it may have been quick, but it was profound. (Also, we learn from Swami that true meditation is remembering God. And this can be done in any occasion, not only in the "meditation" moment of the sadhana.)

So... thanks for the new post. As your words are true blessings for me, I hope I could also share a bit of something good with this comment.

Om Sai Ram

Sairam dear J, Yes, I too believe that the feeling is gathering momentum for the approaching "magnificent moment". It is also about how we can prepare ourselves by turning inwards, following Swami's teachings and be indulged in constant Namasmarana. Thank you for this beautiful and insightful comment.

as per what baba told my (late) father none of the previous avatars were "full blown" Only He was, although the "full blown" part is yet to be seen, assuming their is a second coming. prem sai as an avatar will be no different than shirdi sai or krishna. but as u have said in so many places, their can be no Prem Sai till Baba's mission is done, as predicted by HIM.

I have had dreams of Swami coming back and giving darshan in a form which is bigger, darker, stern, like Kalki , wreathful like rudra yet compassionate and reassuring to the true followers of His teachings....

Sairam Sri Yogi Kumar, Very interesting. Some other devotees have also mentioned about the "roudra" bhava. I was pondering on putting together an article on this aspect based on devotees' experiences. Thank you for sharing.

It is interesting to hear about Swami coming back with a blissful and a stern side.

This make sense to me, especially considering a dream I had in 2005.

I think if He does come back in physical form for another 7 or 8 years, these will be tumultuous years on earth....great change....people will be confronted with a more distinct turn strongly to the Light....or go more strongly into denial.

I think the vast majority of us humans will turn to the light. But, even so, this will be a "concentrated" effort, and a painful one for the unripe ego in each of us.

This is just my idea. I do not pretend to know if it is true or not.

I base this idea, partly on the most complex, profound lucid dream that I have ever had in my life. It happened on May 18, 2005.

I would like to share this dream now:

On that day, I received a powerful blessing from the messenger of a great sage. Because of that blessing, I had decided, to put on a "World Peace Vigil," the very next month, on June 24th, 2005.

That night, as I was "sleeping" beside my wife in our bedroom, suddenly I found myself fully awake and aware, in a lucid dream.....

I was meditating in a gentle lotus posture in a room. Within the meditation, my subtle body stood up and walk out of the room and into a car. I drove the car onto a bridge (overlooking a wide panoramic view), when the earth started shaking and my car, along with other cars, started sliding into each other.

This was a lucid dream.....I was intuitively aware that God was sharing something important with me.

My heart broke open with compassion, for I knew the earth shaking was symbolic of concentrated hard times coming to many people on earth.

With that understanding, I, once again, found my awareness back in the same room as before. My body was still in the cross-legged, meditative position (I was still "asleep" beside my wife in our bedroom).

Now, I actually got up out of the cross-legged position and, just as my subtle body had done before, I walked out of the room and into a car. Again, just like before, I drove the car onto the same bridge, and again, the earth began to shake and my car, along with others, began to crash into each other.

This time, the scene unfolded further. I, once again, was filled with the certainty that God was sharing something very important. Again, my heart seemed to grow big enough to experience a massive sense of pain that humanity was experiencing.

Again, I was certain that the "earthquake" was symbolic of humanity having to "squeeze through" a very concentrated period of great difficulty.

Now, My car made it almost to the end of the bridge. I found myself in a multi-car wreck, with multiple injuries to various people in various cars. I was able to get out of the car, with the intention of helping those that were hurt.

But I was confused......I didn't know exactly how to help with so much going on simultaneously...... My heart was hurting with an abundance of compassion spilling out......(A large part of me knew that this was all symbolic, yet I wanted to help)

In my mind and heart, there was a moment of spontaneous prayer....."what should I do?"

At that very moment, I felt compelled to look up and to the left.

About 20 feet away (roughly) there was a male angel, or more accurately, a messenger of God, in the form of a young man, about 25 years old, in a white robe with a rope or tie around his wait.

He was hovering above the ground, looking at me.

to be continued in next comment.......

continuing from last comment....

A silent request, for guidance as to how I could help in this difficult situation, arose from me to him.

He spoke two words in a gentle but commanding voice, "Go Back."

With an immediate desire to comply with his words, I felt myself withdrawing from the scene.....and in a moment, I was back in my bed, next to my wife.

Without a trace of drowsiness and with no "transition period" from sleeping to being fully awake, I sat up in my bed, with the most profound sense....with full recollection of the very Divine and complex nature of the "dream" that I had just experienced.

Every morsel, every detail, of the experience was with me, in the most intense way. I knew immediately that I had just had one the most profound spiritual experiences of my life.

There was an adamantine will power within me that knew that I would spend the rest of my life devoted to helping humanity through the difficult days ahead.

I don't know why, but I immediately got up out of my bed and stood there, facing East, to where my altar was, in my room.

I don't know why, but I stretched out my arms, and noticed that the cells of my body all seemed to be vibrating, as if they were made of a subtle light.

I stood there as another profound experience began. With arms still outstretched, I felt as if I were at the bottom of something like the Grand Canyon.

My adamantine conviction to give myself completely to the service of others during these times of trial, combined with the realization that God seemed to have just sent a bonafide Divine message and messenger to encourage me in this direction........seemed to culminate in a genuine "upliftment" experience.

Though I stood, perfectly silent and still, next to my bed, my consciousness seemed to "rush upwards" ...

.....up, up up....expanding into the sky and space above......

.....and all the while, a voice, not my own, resounding from all around me, was repeating....

"Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at Hand."
"Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at Hand."
"Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at Hand."
"Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at Hand."
"Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at Hand."........

Again and Again and Again.....this phrase was repeated, seemingly from the very aether surrounding me.

Now, I found myself standing there, next to my bed, pondering John the Baptist.

For it was with John the Baptist whom I had always connected this phrase.


The next morning, I called my mom, who is an ardent Catholic. I told her about the dream, and John the Baptist's phrase that rang out repeatedly. I also told here about the Peace Vigil that I was planning on June 24th.

It was at that moment that she informed my that June 24th was the feast day of John the Baptist.

A strong sequence of "miraculous" events unfolded over the next month and beyond......

Sreejith, this is one of many profound experiences that I have had. These experiences started happening to me at age 30. I am now 51. I know many, many other Sai Devotees, and Devotees of God in all forms, are having similar experiences.

Thank you so much for sharing this dream/experience you had. It has helped to ground my exuberant anticipation of Swami's Return and inspired me to be aware of the human pain that may also be out there during those 7-9 years when He is back among us, during what you describe as a bottleneck of acceleration into Sathya Sai's Golden Age. I, too, want to Help in any way I can. Thanks again for the profound sharing.

Wonderful stories and we all wait in anticipation. Reminded of the words of the beautiful hymn
God is working his purpose out
as year succeeds to year:
God is working his purpose out,
and the time is drawing near;
nearer and nearer draws the time,
the time that shall surely be,
when the earth shall be filled
with the glory of God
as the waters cover the sea.

From utmost east to utmost west,
wherever foot hath trod,
by the mouth of many messengers
goes forth the voice of God;
give ear to me, ye continents,
ye isles, give ear to me,
that earth may filled
with the glory of God
as the waters cover the sea.
