O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

1)  Curing my illness at once: After touching Atma Lingam that appeared on the chest of Swami in the midnight of Shiva Raatri festival, I was often becoming ill. Once I was admitted in the hospital in unconscious stage and I was put on saline. My mother was bringing Swami to the hospital in an auto. She told Swami “I know You as Lord Venkateshwara in human form. My son is also a very strong devotee of Lord Venkateshwara from childhood. Hence, You must give me back my son relieving him from the present danger”. Swami replied, “If you really believe Me as human form of Lord Venkateshwara, certainly, your son will come home at once. But, you must donate your son to Me for My service”. My mother agreed to that and I was cured of my illness suddenly and returned to my home in very short period.

My mother told my father all about her conversation with Swami. My father became angry telling “How can you alone donate our son without consent from me since both of us have equal right on the issue?” Then, I interfered telling “do you remember about a dream that came to my mother when I was a six month-child? Lord Venkateshwara appeared in the dream and asked her to donate me to Him”. Both my parents recollected and agreed to this fact. Then, I continued “do you also remember that my mother replied the Lord saying that how she can donate me to Lord since I was a very small child, just born.” Both agreed to this also because my mother told my father then itself about her reply also to the Lord in the dream. Then, I continued “do you also remember that the same Lord appeared to my mother in dream again when I was 17 years old, asking her to donate me to Him. My mother replied in dream that how can she donate me to a statue since the Lord is not in human form”. Both recollected that also since my mother was informing my father every time about her dream. Then, I continued “do you also agree that Lord Venkateshwara is in the human form of Swami from recent incident of interview for my job at Chennai (this incident is already mentioned in Brahma Lahari in which Swami gave proof that He is the same Lord Venkateshwara)”. Both my parents agreed to this point also since both experienced this directly in this recent incident. I further continued “Now add all these three points to get the answer: 1) Lord Venkateshwara asked my mother to donate me to Him in a dream when I was a tiny child and also when I was a boy of 17 years. 2) My mother replied in the first dream that how can she donate me as a small child and again replied in the second dream that how can she donate a boy to a statue unless the Lord is in human form. 3) Swami gave proof that He is the human form of Lord Venkateshwara and then only asked my mother to donate me to Him since Swami proved Himself as human form of the same Lord. The Lord in human form asked only my mother since my mother only got dreams and she only expressed that how the donation of son can be done to a statue unless the Lord is in human form. All these three points put together give the final solution of this issue. Let me be donated to Swami for His service. Otherwise, the sin to tell a lie to the Lord will arise in your case”. Both my parents were satisfied with my analysis and agreed to donate me to the Lord in human form as per the promise given to Him by my mother in dream as well as in auto in awaken state also.

Swami’s comment: Your parents must be appreciated since they didn’t go back from the word given as assurance in a very long back dream. They were bound to their promise given to God in a long back dream. Being the issue of such good parents, you were also very strictly devoted to offer yourself to the service of God in order to protect the promise of your mother to God. God asked you for His service based on your such good personal nature and also based on the same good nature of your parents, who were bound to their promise given in a long back dream. Your life history resembles the life history of the devotee, Markandeya, who was blessed with very short longevity. Lord Yama came twice to take away Markandeya and the parents were giving excuse like birth function and function of thread marriage. Lord Yama came for the third time like Me to take away the boy.

2)  Curing illness of student: In Machilipatnam Shri Subba Rao, Retd., Income Tax officer, is having a son, studying B.Tech., and is suffering with a peculiar illness, which is that he gets the bad smell of his own sweat that results in vomiting. Several doctors were consulted, several medicines were used, several astrologers were consulted and their remedial suggestions were implemented and several saints were worshipped, but, there is no trace of any use. Finally the father came to Swami and prayed Swami to give cure to this burning problem. Swami refused saying “When so many saints couldn’t do anything, I, a petty devotee can’t do anything. When so many doctors, who were experts in applied chemistry to the human body couldn’t do anything, I, a Professor of pure chemistry can’t do anything”. Then, the father fell on the feet of Swami weeping that he will not leave the feet of Swami since he came to the human form of Lord Datta. Then, Swami gave a little Vibhuti (sacred ash) to him. The father went to his home and applied that sacred ash on the forehead of his son. That peculiar decease disappeared at once and the student continued his studies with perfect health.

Swami’s comment: That soul insulted and mocked others for their bad odour of sweat in the past birth. This is the punishment of that sin. This is the reason why Swami tries to escape from the cure since the normal regular cycle of deeds and punishments should not be interfered even by God, being the Law maker! However, the miracle is to be exhibited in the context of initial pickup from devotees for the sake of programme of human incarnation. The adjustment by postponement of punishment is a routine matter of the divine administration about which proper steps are always taken by the deity of justice, co-operating with the miracle required for the divine programme. All this is the secret background of any miracle, unknown to the devotees. Of course, if God in human form suffers for the sake of devotee, there is no need of any adjustment. Such transfer of punishment is judged by God examining the deservingness of the devotee to get transformation.

3)  Protecting a devotee from death: Smt. Satyakumari is a devotee of Lord Datta in Hyderabad. She came to the house of Shri C B K Murthy to see Swami. She saw Swami emitting very strong radiations of light energy and this was revealed by her. She started shaking terribly. Following conversation took place between her and Swami. Swami: who are you? She: I am Lord Dattatreya. Swami: If you are Datta, then, who am I? She: You are Myself. You are Myself. You are Myself. After this, she became normal. After her leaving, Swami told C B K Murthy “she is going to die by heart attack today in the midnight. If she prays Me, I shall protect her”. Then, C B K Murthy hurried to phone her to inform about this. Swami warned not to inform this to her since this information itself may bring heart attack! She was not informed. That day in the midnight she phoned Swami to protect her life as she was suffering with lot of heart pain. Swami assured her protection and she was revived with good health immediately.

Swami’s comment: This devotee, who got heart attack, was a Govt., Lady Officer in the past birth doing lot of financial corruption due to which one lady devotee got heart attack, who was unable to bribe her. This is the punishment for that sin.

4)  Protecting the life of a boy: Shri Prabhakar was a good devotee of Swami. He was having a son, who is a boy of 5 years. Once, that boy was seriously attacked by illness becoming unconscious and Prabhakar wept before Swami. “Swami! Please protect my son from danger”. Swami told “no fear. I will drive away the soldiers of Yama (deity of death)”. That boy was also a very good devotee of Swami. Whenever he sees Swami, he falls on the feet of Swami at once! Both the parents didn’t take the boy to the hospital keeping full faith in Swami. Both did not sleep at all throughout the night sitting before the boy. Swami was also sitting near the boy (since Prabhakar stayed in a portion of my house only and Swami was also staying in our house on that day). In the midnight Swami looked in to space with anger and shouted at some invisible (but visible to Swami) people saying them to go back. After some time, Swami became peaceful. The boy also recovered immediately! Swami told that He drove away the soldiers of the deity of death.

Swami’s comment: The illness of this boy was due to adulteration of food grains in his past birth in which he was a business man.

5)  Curing back-pain and stomach pain:

a) Back pain: The third son of C B K Murthy, Ramana, in Hyderabad got severe back pain in one night. His wife was trying to phone to doctors. Ramana phoned to Swami in Vijayawada to protect him. Swami took that pain and Ramana was immediately cured. Swami suffered with mild back pain for several years after this.

b) Stomach pain: Ms. Jyoti in Guntur was an excellent devotee of Swami. She invited Swami to her house and introduced her grandfather, who was suffering with severe stomach pain for the past six years. She showed a full rack of bottles of medicines used for that illness and said that no trace of cure was found till then. Even if he takes very little food, the terrible stomach pain appears immediately. Her grandfather gave a dozen banana fruits to Swami as offering to God. Swami took one fruit and ate it saying “I have taken your stomach pain through this fruit. Now itself, you eat the remaining 11 fruits if you have faith in Me”. Her grandfather ate all the 11 fruits keeping full faith in Swami and no trace of pain appeared. From that night onwards he was taking full meals and never experienced any pain in stomach. But, in the same night, Swami suffered with such intensive pain in stomach jumping in lying condition on the bed so that the plastic strings of the cot were cut due to those jumps! Next day, she came and fell on the feet of Swami with total surrender.

Swami’s comment: Ramana was a lady in the past birth having a cow and she hit its back with a strong stick and this is result of that sin. The grandfather of Jyoti was a greedy person in the past birth, who was not giving food to any hungry beggar and this is the result of that sin. I took the first pain in small quantities for a long period and I took the second pain totally in very short period of one night. Both are one and the same depending on time and intensity.

6)  Curing devotee from brain hemorrhage and paralysis: Once Swami told “I worshipped Lord Shiva to get severe problems and difficulties so that My mind will run to God and also since I was bored with continuous happiness like eating sweets continuously. God Shiva looked at Me with highest amazement! From next day onwards, severe problems attacked Me and I could develop perfect devotion to God. Happiness is your enemy and difficulties are your friends in spiritual path. The anger of God gives you materialistic happiness and grace of God gives you difficulties”. After satsang on that day, devotees were given some sweet preparation after offering to God. While eating the sweet Ajay thought that he was also bored with continuous sweets like Swami. Swami looked at him and smiled. That day evening, Swami was going by train and Ajay went to Railway station to drop Swami. While the train was moving, Ajay was running on the platform by the side of Swami sitting in the train. Swami suddenly told “be prepared. The chariot will come today to take away your wife”. There was no time for Ajay to ask for the clarification as the train already picked up speed. That night, Lakshmi, wife of Ajay, was attacked by brain-hemorrhage and paralysis and was suddenly rushed to hospital. Scanning was taken by doctors in which the nerves in the brain were cut and their fluid formed a mat, which will certainly lead to coma. Doctors said that the case is very critical and Ajay told them “Swami is there for me”. Doctors did not relish that saying of Ajay.

After two days, Swami returned to Vijayawada and Ajay fell on the feet of Swami praying pitiably for the protection of Lakshmi. Swami replied “O Ajay! You were bored with sweets and wanted chillies. Within two days, you are praying again for sweets!” Ajay realised and submitted apology for his wish against sweets. Lakshmi was brought to home since doctors expressed their inability to save her. Swami went to the house of Ajay on that Thursday and asked Ajay to attend his office from that day onwards. Ajay expressed His inability to go to office in such serious condition of Lakshmi. Swami told that Lakshmi will raise from bed and prepare food so that he can go to his office. Lakshmi arose from bed, walking fast in to kitchen and talked fast (she was dumb till then). Swami insisted to take the scanning of her brain once again. It was taken and doctors were astonished to see the nerves joined together and absence of the mat! Doctors said “This is impossible in medical history! You have certainly that Swami with you about whom you were referring to us”. Ajay did lot of practical sacrifice of money and also work for the sake of Swami. Swami always gives first place to Ajay in the devotees. Once, Smt. Bhavani, wife of CBK Murthy asked Swami “whom you are taking to Brahma Loka (abode of God). Swami replied “the ticket of Ajay is confirmed. The ticket of Phani is in R.A.C., but, it will be also confirmed in future since he has to do lot of My service.” This question was put to Swami since on that day Swami sang the following small song spontaneously: “For Our sake and in Our services only, those alone who suffered pain and loss, shall follow us up to our Brahma Loka, other gas-masters are cut from the list”. You can just imagine the level of devotion of Ajay to Swami!

Swami’s comment: She was a priest in temple of Lord Shiva in the past birth, in which he often hit the head of his assisting boy with his folded hand for small mistakes and this is the result of that sin.

7)  Curing from heart attack: On one day, Lakshmi, wife of Ajay, prayed Swami to save her mother (Smt. Kaameshwaramma) from the heart surgery that is going to be done next day for her heart attack. Swami told “death is inevitable for anybody, who is born here. Leave this blind passion to your mother and divert it to God”. She insisted Swami. Swami told “all right. I will respond to your prayer since this is your first desire presented to Me”. Next day, when doctors tested before operation on the request of Lakshmi, they were astonished to find no problem in her heart. Her mother lived for a long time after that.

Swami’s comment: This soul was a land revenue officer in the past birth and was collecting huge bribe from innocent public and the result of that sin is this punishment through heart attack.

8)  Protecting Shrilakshmi from several dangers: The first daughter-in-law of C B K Murthy (Shrilakshmi), who was blessed with the vision of radiation of God Brahma, was saved from several dangers: a) She was suffering with severe headache, which disappeared when Swami pressed her head with His hand b) She suffered with severe throat pain, which disappeared when Swami touched her throat. c) Once she was seriously ill and was thought almost in the last stage. Swami took a stick in His hand moving around the house throughout the night shaking that stick to drive away the soldiers of Yama (deity of death). By next day-morning, she was perfectly cured.

Swami’s comment: This soul was a lady in the family of farmers in North India. She was often beating her innocent cousin sister and these problems are the punishments of those sins in this birth.

9)  Curing headache of my mother: Once, my mother suffered with sudden and serious headache. Swami was there and told “I am taking that headache on to my foot, which was already hit by the hunter in my past birth.” The headache of my mother immediately disappeared and she saw a flash of fire coming out from her head and entering the foot of Swami. Swami suffered with foot-ache throughout that night.

Swami’s comment: She was also a Govt. officer in the past birth collecting bribe from innocent public and this is the punishment of that sin in this birth.

10)        Curing cheek pain: The first daughter C B K Murthy, called as Shrutakerti served Swami always by offering meals with lot of care and affection. Swami appreciates her devotion. She started suffering with severe pain on cheek. She fixed appointment with a doctor in Bangalore. That day, Swami came to her house. Swami told “I will do that operation. Don’t worry”. She thought that Swami will enter the doctor in Bangalore in future during the time of operation. That night, she got a dream in which Swami appeared and performed the operation of her cheek. Next day, the cheek was seen normal without any pain forever.

Swami’s comment: This soul was a king in the previous birth, who slapped his minister for giving an advice not liked by him. This is the punishment of that sin.
