A Pre World Conference (PWC) for Zone 9A of the Sathya Sai International Organisation was held in Durban, South Africa during 4-6 September, 2015.
The Hon. Dr. Geeta Reddy, an ardent devotee of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and also a respected member of the Legislative Assembly of Andhra Pradesh, from the state of Telangana in South India , was invited as a guest speaker for all three days of the Pre World Conference.
At the conference Dr. Geeta Reddy narrated many experiences and service activities with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and she also shared a personal miracle relating to her husband. Her talks left an indelible impression on the minds of many devotees at the conference. Unbeknown to her when she left India for the conference she carried 3 packets of sacred vibuthi given to her personally by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and this vibuthi was to manifest in the unfolding of a divine miracle in Durban South Africa. Also attending the conference was one troubled grandfather devotee, whose 9 month old grandchild was suffering with meningitis. This grandfather repeatedly called upon a devotee who was interacting with Dr Reddy in the hope that she could arrange for Dr.Geeta to visit his grandchild in hospital for a blessing. The request unfortunately could not be met due to the hectic and tight schedule of the PWC. Towards the end of the conference this little baby was given very little hope of survival by the doctor in attendance at the Ballito Hospital in Durban. The doctor advised the family that the child was considered brain dead and will be held in intensive care for a few more days and nothing more can be done for the child.
By sheer pure coincidence on the next day the grandfather had to take his sister- in- law to the airport who was travelling to Puttaparthi. At the airport he spotted Dr Geeta Reddy and her Husband who were departing for India.
He immediately went over and narrated his grand child’s problem, and how much he had wanted her to come to see the child in the hospital. She was so touched by his plight that she took out a plastic pouch which had the 3 vibhuthi packets in it from her purse. She told him that she had received an inner command to carry these packets just before her departure to the International airport at Hyderabad, India. She reassured the grandfather that she now knows, that this vibhuthi was meant for his grandchild alone and sent by our Lord Sai! Sathya Sai Baba who hears every one’s sincere prayers. Dr Reddy prayed for the baby and left to board the flight with her husband.
The vibhuthi was safely given to the baby’s mother by the grandfather. She immediately applied the vibhuthi onto the little baby still lying very ill in the ICUward at the hospital. There was total disbelief by the medical team in the ICU ward when they suddenly heard this little baby start to cry as all had considered the child brain dead. What a Miracle!
Swami’s Miracle vibhuthi had done its work. The brain infection quickly subsided after that first application of vibuthi. A loving devotee, a few days later, also provided Swami’s Robe to be kept next to the baby.
Following this timely intervention doctors declared that the brain infection had subsided and she would recover soon.
Now the blessed baby is out of hospital and playing like any normal child of her age.Such is the great compassion of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, though not physically present; HE sent "The Miracle Vibhuthi" from thousands of miles across the globe for this little baby as HE had heard the sincere prayers of the mother and family. This “Vibhuthi Miracle “undoubtedly strengthens our faith in our Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, because HE is very much with us all the time and hears all sincere our prayers. HE is the ever present HRIDAYAVASI (In dweller of our heart).
