During the year 2008, Baba suddenly started coming into my dreams, almost everyday. Though my in-laws are into the fold of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, I was not much connected with His form. I was always a devotee of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba. Then I gradually started accepting Him also as another God Man. But later through many of my dreams, Baba Himself confirmed that He and Shirdi Sai Baba are one and the same. It had given me complete trust in Him. Gradually Sathya Sai Baba’s form had taken over my heart and trust.
Since then, I have received many dreams. Even before Baba had come into dreams, I always had seen Shirdi Sai Baba with a lady in my dreams. Similarly, often I saw Baba in my dreams in His interview room along with the same lady. They both used to have their meals together. That lady always gave me apples and sweets (is there any spiritual significance for apple?). Though I surely recognized her in the dreams, literally to my knowledge, I do not know who she was. Later in many of my dreams, Baba had always shown me changing Himself into Her form and Herself into His form, repetitively saying that She and Him are one. After listening to my dreams, everybody confirmed that since I chant Lalitha Sahasra Namam every Friday, Baba is showing Sri Lalitambiga with Him. During 2009, in one of my dreams Baba told me that I will meet my real mother. Now, after speaking to some of the Sai devotees, who have been following STKC, have given me different opinions on my dreams, mentioning that the lady could be Gayatri Maa. But she never dressed up like typical Goddess, but looked simple, serene and like a Saint.
Before Maha Samadhi, Baba came into my dream and said, that He is going for 'Chaturmasa Deeksha'. I tried to find out the meaning of this term and found that usually great Saints go for hibernation for rejuvenating physically it seems. But I don’t know how these kind of sadhanas match with Baba (Yogeshwara). During the time when Baba was hospitalized, I too had to under go a heart surgery. Since my family knew that I was very much attached to Him, they did not reveal the news of Baba’s Maha Samadhi to me. While I was in the hospital, I got a dream in which Baba said that He will be alright soon and that He will return soon. I understood this dream only after knowing about Baba’s Maha Samadhi. Since then I have been longing to see His return.
As I am a Balvikas guru, I had been to Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Mandir along with children on 31st December, 2014, evening. After the bhajans, as usual, I sat near the huge, much bigger than the life size photograph of Baba and was praying for His return, staring at Him. Suddenly, I saw His hand stretching out from the photograph, towards me. He kept His hand on my head and said, "Tonight, I am coming back." I got stunned and got frightened for this sudden miracle and blessings of Baba.
But no such message of Baba’s reappearance had come on 1st January, 2015. I got very much upset and had become very vulnerable. Yesterday night, Baba appeared in my vision and asked smilingly, "Were you not informed, that I have already arrived?"
After receiving this dream, I could not understand His words and when shared with other Sai devotee friends, they have narrated similar experiences of others to me, which they found in STKC. And also suggested me to share my experiences with you all.
Jai Sai Ram!
