A devotee sharing his first experience of Kangra

Om Sri Sairam… brothers and sisters, my humble pranams to our beloved Swami and our guru Sri Swami Shivananda…

Today, I would like to share the experience I had when I first stepped towards Kangra Sai Mandir. It was on 17th July 2012, when I first went to Kangra Sai Mandir. I was told by some devotees from Punjab about Kangra Sai Mandir and Swami’s divine leelas there. I too wanted to visit the temple but didn’t know the exact location of temple. One day i.e. 17th of July 2017, I was all prepared to go to Puttaparthi but due to some reason I was unable to go and I was very upset and sad about the cancellation of my trip to Puttaparthi. A few hours later on the same day, I received a call from some devotees from Punjab about their plan to visit  to Kangra Sai Mandir, asking me to come and meet them there in Old Kangra.

Manifestation of ring for a devotee in Delhi

Sairam brothers and sisters.. today I am going to share an experience when Babaji visited my home in Delhi…

It was 21st February, when I invited Babaji for dinner to my house. Babaji came home along with loving Sai brothers Ashish and Vipul and Sai sisters Divya and Poshna. We offered pooja to Swami along with Babaji, followed by dinner. After dinner we chatted for a while and after that Babaji was about to leave and as he was moving towards the door, he suddenly held my hand, started waving his hand and created a beautiful ring given by Swami.. I was amazed to see this unexpected happening… the ring was so beautiful… more beautiful than I could have ever imagined…

Experience shared by a devotee from Australia

Om Sri Sairam. A Humble offering to our beloved master – “The Master we have never seen before”.

Our connection with Babaji at Kangra happened through a friend, a friend with whom we were not even in touch with for more than 9 years. We traveled with no expectations but with a few jitters which I left with the Lord to take care. The humble Babaji and family, elegant altar of Swami, heart warming bhajans, most beautiful Maa and Aarthi set us up feeling so comfortable. It was astounding to feel part of a family on the very first day and little did I expect for my little one to really feel this Love so instantaneously. Continue Reading
