With Swami's Grace, the Tamil Translation of Sai Thy Kingdom Come was dedicated at His Divine Lotus Feet on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chathurthi of 2013. It was expertly translated by Sri Muthaiah Chockalingam.
Sri Muthaiah Chockalingam who now serves as the Samithi Convenor at Pattukkottai, Tamilnadu, has had many wonderful experiences with our dear Lord. Since the day Bhagawan left His body, Sri Muthaiah had several intuitions of His Return in the Sathya Sai Form that He most gladly and selflessly undertook the task of translating STKC to Tamil.
A brief profile of Sri Muthaiah Chockalingam in his own words:
I have been blessed with divine experiences of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba since 1963 when I first sent a letter to Baba. I had the grace from Bhagawan for personal Interview in Nov 1976. Baba materialized a golden coin with his photo embedded on it. Again Baba blessed with an interview in 1978 and also gifted another coin in that interview. Later almost every month we were visiting Puttaparthi for almost four years during the years 1976 to 1982. My brother Sri C.Subramanian is an ardent devotee of Baba and he has translated the famous life history of Shirdi Sai Baba published by Shirdi Sai Sansthan and this Tamil book has been so far published in 17 editions since 1980.
I was married in December 1968 to Ms.Chandrakala. In an interview in 1978, Baba blessed and gave Padanamaskar to both of us simultaneously. He held our hands and feet allowing our heads to touch His Lotus feet. My wife had suffered various illnesses and was cured miraculously by Baba. She had injuries in spine and according to the medical professionals, surgery was impossible. However, she was miraculously cured to the level of walking and doing her own necessities.
I was blessed many times with interviews, padanamaskars, darshan, sparshan and sambashan with Sri Sathya Sai Baba for the past nearly four decades. I have been active Seva Dal and served at Puttaparthi for many years in summer and also worked as Samithi Convenor, Study Cricle Convenor and District President. Baba's continuous presence is always felt by me and many times He saved me from calamities, catastrophes, accidents etc. I used to have frequent darshan or visions or dreams. He has blessed me with interviews in 1976 and 1978.
One time in 1985, Swami visited my home in Physical form when I was away and went for a Samithi Service in a Hospital. The maid in the house had the opportunity of Swami's darshan and sambashan. My younger son was named by Baba at Kodaikanal in 1985 as Sai Giridhar. Baba saved him in many occasions from difficulties and dangers. In 1984, when Sai Giridhar was four years old, he was cured of polio in his leg and made to walk by the Divine Miracle of Baba. He is now 33 years old. My father was cured of Colon Cancer in 1975 and he lived for nearly 25 years after that. I have translated two books on Baba - 1978 Summer Showers in Brindavan on Srimad Bhagavatam and 1979 Summer Showers in Brindavan on Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
I humbly dedicate this work at the Divine Lotus Feet of our dear Lord Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
