The Spring of Divine Sakthis
( Twelve Concomitant Proofs of Divine Majesty )
(ARJAN D. BHARWANI)
Dr K M. Munshi, a great follower of Gandhiji, one of the architects of free India, a famous Gujarati writer and the founder of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, on his first meeting with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, which took place on 15th May, 1968, involuntary uttered “I came, I saw and I was conquered.”
Exactly after two months on 15th July 1968, while addressing a mammoth gathering at Dharmakshetra, Bombay, Dr Munshi broke down with heart felt emotions and he spoke these soul stirring words “I was pained to see around me the quick decline of faith in God and earnestness in religion and I was on the brink of despair when I contemplated the future of this ancient land. But as I look upo Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and witness the transformation He is affecting in the heart of millions, I am heartened and and happy.”
Dr. Samuel Sandweiss, M.D. the author of a popular book entitled "SAI BABA THE HOLY MAN AND THE PSYCHIATRIST," has written about his personal and unique experiences with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Prior to writing this book he came specially from the U.S.A. with the intention of researching and investigating. Ultimately he came to realize that Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is Divine Incarnation of God. This is what be expressed in a letter to his wife. “There is no doubt in my mind that Sai Baba is Divine. I astound myseIf to say such a thing ! I believe, I cannot even communicate the experience. I know alI this isn't hypnosis, mass delusion, hallucination, hysteria and effect of cultural shock or drug intoxication. It is too simple to say I saw a materialisation and then all of a sudden changed. I marvel at the experience, unable to relate it fully, joyful that I am able to share it with so many who are witnessing it. I believe, Baba to be an Incarnation of God".
Shri R. K. Karanjia, the Editor of a popular English Weekly 'BLITZ', on his return from Puttaparthi after his first meeting with Baba, wrote in his paper dated 11th September 1976 in bold capital letters, ';GOD IS AN INDIAN." He went on to write that during the darshans at Puttaparthi, "The impact or compact between the devotees and their Bhagavan was immediate, electric, powerful. I saw the poor devotees come first, the rich last. In the middle was I - a sceptic, a critic, a Marxist who had in the past openly questioned and criticised Sathya Sai Baba." He further adds in Blitz dated 25th September 1976, "As I have already admitted the encounter was fantastic, almost shattering one, that does not mean, that I have been bribed, bought, hypnotised, converted or otherwise influenced by Baba."
In another article Mr. Karanjia writes, "He went on to amaze me with knowledge of the most intimate developments affecting my life and work. He appeared also to know beforehand the questions I had planned to ask. As soon as I began asking one He would stop me with a gentle tap on the knee to begin answering it. I never completed a question, still I got all the answers.
