Sai Spiritual Showers Volume 2 Issue 87 Thursday, March 17, 2011
You wear coloured glasses and see everything through those glasses. Correct your vision; the world will get corrected. Reform youselves; the world will get reformed. You create the world of your choice. You see many, because you seek the many, not the One. Try to subsume the many in the One; the physical bodies of yourselves and others, the family, the village, the community, the state, the nation, the world. Thus progressively march on towards more and more inclusive loyalties and reach the stage of Unity, in thought, word and deed. This is the Sadhana of Love for, Love is expansion, inclusion, mutualisation. The individual has to be Universalised, expanded into Vishwaswaroopa. - Sri Sathya Sai
"He Called Me...": How Bhagawan uses the media of the dreams that His devotees see, to give them Darshan, to help them with  timely suggestions and advice, to cure them of physical and mental illnesses, to apply Vibhuti or other curative materials, to teach them hymns and songs which they have to sing later at Prasanthi Nilayam, and how Baba Himself remembers these dreams that His devotees ‘see’, and reminds the ‘dreamer’ later about the ‘dreams’ He has granted and enacted! This is something beyond the ken of psychologists and is possible only in the case of an Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent Avatar. In this article, we have a letter Kasturi ji had received, wherein is revealed another facet of the Lord's leela, mysterious, divine, inexplicable from our plane. Bhagawan has His own miraculous methods of communication with those whom He wants to call towards Him. Read on an article by Prof. Kasturi as published in Sanathana Sarathi, Feb 1959.

'I have been waiting long' says Sri P. S. Menon, "to write this letter; an opportunity has now presented itself! Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba took me under His care, in very mysterious circumstances. On Thursday, 27th Feb., I went to a friend of mine and I found he was engaged in Bhajan. I sat through the bhajan, and when later, he explained to me that the photograph on the wall was of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and related to me some examples illustrating His Glory, I expressed a desire to have a darsan of Baba. On Friday, 7th March, scarce nine days later, just as I entered " my office, at 9 A.M. the telephone bell rang. It appeared as if someone had been awaiting to get an inkling of my stepping into the room to speak to me. My entry and the call synchronised to that extent!

An unfamiliar Voice asked me whether I was P. S. Menon. I said. "Yes" and asked for the name of the caller. The Voice said, "Puttaparthi" and directed me to come to Osborne House, Thousand Lights before 5 P. M., or if it is later than 7 P. M., to an address, which It dictated, at Pithapurnagar! I was so puzzled and nervous, at the word, Puttaparthi, and at the commanding but gracious style of the message that I forgot to ask the date on which I was to go to those places! I had, however, sufficient courage to ask the Voice again, "Please tell me your name. You say "Puttaparthi, only." But, for this, the reply I got was this : "Are you not P. S. Menon? Did you not express a desire to see me?"........ Then the fact dawned on me that the Voice was of Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba Himself! ! Imagine my joy and exhilaration! Imagine, also, my sorrow, when the telephone was put down at the other end and I was left alone, in my room, with that Voice resounding in my heart.

He Called me! He commanded me to come. But on what day?.... ..... I ran up to Thousand Lights, to Osborne House; but, I found that Bhagawan was actually at Bangalore. He was not in Madras! I had no doubt He had spoken to me. We had talked to each other in Tamil and His speech sounded slightly non-Tamilian.

Inquiries at the Telephone Exchange revealed which were still more puzzling! The operator at the Exchange was adamant that she had not connected my phone to anyone, since dawn that day, not at all for a Trunk Call from Bangalore or anywhere! At 5 P. M., the same day, a telephone call was made from Osborne House, at my instance to the Kumara Raja who was attending some function which Baba was inaugurating at Bangalore. The reply was that Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba had not used a telephone at all that day, much less a trunk call! Besides, no one at Bangalore, with the exception of the All-knowing Bhagawan had any idea of my existence, not to speak of my telephone and its number! To every one in the Sai Bhakta Circle, I was unknown.

Baba had, evidently, used my telephone as a vehicle for His Asareeri Message! Mysterious indeed are His ways."

Indeed, we whose categories of thought are limited by Maya and the consequent confusion and conceit cannot grasp the miracle of His Grace, and the many-sidedness of His Glory.
