On 20th February (2016) early morning, I had back-to-back dreams.
In the first, I was at the temple town of Tirupati/Tirumala and the clouds were dark and pieces of cloth which I thought were belonging to Swami, were falling down from sky. I could know that Swami has returned as predicted and, lo and behold, an edifice similar to the Sathya Sai University Administrative building illuminated atop a hill afar with Swami standing in the open veranda.
The crowd was there nevertheless and some started scrambling and occupied places on the ledges of the hill looking eagerly at Swami. I said God has returned and is at Parthi and somebody in the crowd exclaimed the Sanskrit verse "Poorna madah Poorna midam". As much as there is God in Puttaparthi, so much He is at Tirupati too. And the dream ended, though I wanted it to continue.
In the next dream, I was at Parthi and saw young Swami with strong legs, walking up a ramp to reach a place. A few Sai Organisation members were also seen with Him along with a couple of policemen. I passed by Swami from near, saw His chubby face, felt, must be of 45 years old. I went straight into a Mandir and was desperately seeking out the contact number of Brother Sreejith in my mobile to tell him that Swami returned and public declaration is yet to be made. A few volunteers were also asking me to help them out in distributing packets of turmeric and vermillion. The Mandir for some strange reason was called MATA, and the dream ended.
The dreams were so vivid and impacting that after waking up I really thought for a while "Swami truly returned".
