O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

A) Giving Divine Visions –

1) Giving Vision as Lord Dattatreya:

a) Swami visited the house of a devotee called as Seetamma, who is the neighbor of Shri C.B.K. Murthy. The devotee Seetamma was shocked to see Swami as Lord Dattatreya with three faces and six hands having dazzling golden color as stated by the devotee afterwards. The devotee became unconscious for three days. The interpretation of Swami for the golden color is given like this: “Gold indicates Goddess Lakshmi, who is said to have golden color (Hiranyavarnaam…). Goddess Lakshmi is said to be the divine nature that acts as the medium of God. Gold is said to be the most precious metal indicating the most precious unimaginable God. If you mean gold as unimaginable God, the incarnation becomes Hiranyagarbhaa, which means that gold or unimaginable God is hidden in the medium. If you take gold as the external medium of the unimaginable God, the absolute truth, such concept is also referred in the Veda (Hiranmayena patrena). This devotee is having serious financial problems and the golden color indicates the grace of God to remove her economic difficulties so that she can concentrate more and more on God.”

b) Swami visited the house of Shri G. Shivarama Murthy, Retd. Secretary of Khadi Board in Tirupati for three days and conducted spiritual debates. On the third day, there was a large gathering of devotees. Swami asked the first daughter-in-law (Smt. Valli) of Shri G. Shivarama Murthy, “Look at Me and announce in what form I am appearing to you?” She told that she is viewing Lord Dattatreya with three faces and six hands. Swami told again, “Look at Me more carefully. Wash your face and eyes thoroughly. Then see Me and tell all this gathering in what way I am looking.” She washed her face and rubbed her eyes again and again and finally saw at Swami declaring the same vision of Lord Dattatreya by looking Swami any number of times. The interpretation of Swami on this miracle was like this: “She alone deserves the divine vision in that gathering and she was made to become the witness of the divine vision as said by Jesus (give witness of My miracle). The Veda also says that you should give witness for the divine miracle (Etaavaanasya mahimaa). Such witness brings devotion even in the hearts of the other undeserving devotees of such divine visions and gradually make them deserving.”

c) Shri Subrahmanyam is a strong devotee of Shri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, a human incarnation of Lord Dattatreya. He was such ardent devotee of Swamiji that his last rituals were got conducted by Swamiji Himself. Shri Subrahmanyam came to Swami in Vijayawada and expressed his desire to go to Gangapur and stay there for the rest of his life. Swami told him, “Postpone your journey to Gangapur for a few days to have another journey decided by Lord Datta.” Shri Subrahmanyam thought that he has to visit some other pious place and postponed his journey. Within few days, he became seriously ill and died in the hospital at Mysore. He got the divine vision of Lord Dattatreya in the last hour, which was described by him to his wife as his last words, which were “I am seeing Lord Dattatreya standing before me with brilliant radiation. Each of His three faces is only the face of Shri Datta Swami present in Vijayawada. One sage is sitting at His feet throwing flowers on Him. You please go to Vijayawada and worship Him by which you will certainly get the salvation.” His wife came to Vijayawada and explained this vision and worshiped Swami.
