|Sri Sathya Sai at the entrance of Trayee Brindavan|
Swami came at 4.22 pm. Swami came straight to the Jhoola. Noticing the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Swami blessed him.
Swami called Sri Ajit Popat, a senior devotee from London, in the front.
Swami : Come on. How much time will you speak?
Sri Popat : 20 to 25 minutes Swami.
Swami : Tell important, necessary things. (After his speech, Swami blessed him.) Very nice, very nice.
Sri Popat : It is all Your love, Swami.
Swami : Very nice. Sit down. When are you going?
Sri Popat : Tonight, Swami.
Sri Popat : By flight?
Sri Popat : Yes, Swami.
Swami : How many times have you come here?
Sri Popat : Several times, Swami.
Swami : How many times in groups? (Sri Ajit Popat would always get large groups of devotees from London along with him for Swami’s Darshan.)
Sri Popat : More than 40 times. If Swami looks after, then everything will be fine.
Swami : Don’t get much luggage. Less luggage, more comfort, make travel a pleasure. Convey Swami’s blessings to your wife.
Sri Popat : She loves You, Swami.
Swami : She is much better than you. Very good devotee. How is your business?
Sri Popat : Everything is OK. The business is Yours.
Swami : Kya Kam Hai? (What is lacking?)
Sri Popat : Nothing, Swami.
Swami : Everything is full. Does Swami give Darshan there (in London)?
Sri Popat : We don’t have the purity. Swami comes, but we don’t see. Please give us Jnana Chakshu (eyes of wisdom).
Swami : I will give at the correct time. If I give Jnana Chakshu now, you will lose body consciousness. Wait, at the correct time, I will give. First experience, then I will give Jnana Chakshu.
Sri Popat : If Swami gives a promise, He will keep it.
Swami : I know, if I give a promise, I will keep it. How is Prem Kutir (Sai Center in London)?
Sri Popat : Fine Swami.
Swami : This Kutir (body) or that Kutir (residence)? Both are reflection, reaction, resound. The reflection, reaction, resound of this is that. But sound is one. (To the students) Boys! How was his speech?
|Sri Ajit Popat speaking in the Divine Presence in Trayee Brindavan|
Students : Very nice, Swami.
Swami : All boys are happy.
Sri Popat : He pulled the strings and I spoke.
Swami : For boys, if I pull the strings, it gets cut.
Sri Popat : Don’t pull it so hard.
Swami : For boys, the string is very weak. If I pull even little, it cuts. It divides. Yours is not like that. It is strong. Make it even stronger. Very happy.
Sri Popat : If Swami is happy, the world is happy.
Swami : Yes, I am always happy. World is also always happy. But we don’t see the happiness. That is the defect of the glasses we wear. If we wear a red glass, we see all as red. If we wear a blue glas, we see all as blue. We have to change our glasses. If we wear the glasses of purity and peace, then we can see happiness. (To Sri Ajit Popat) Very, very, very, very happy. What time is the plane?
Sri Popat : 2.30 in the morning, Swami.
Swami : Early morning? Aaj Khush Hai? (Are you happy today?) You spoke in front of Swami. You came and got the chance.
Sri Popat : Yes, Swami.
Swami : Good speech, words were good, feeling was good.
Sri Popat : It was all Your selection.
B. Warden : Very nice speech. Words and feelings were very good.
Swami : See, Warden is telling it was good. (To the students) Sing any Bhajan.
Swami stopped the student in the middle and asked everybody to accompany him.
All sang the Bhajan, “Satyam Jnanam Anantam Brahma…” together. Swami got up and Aarti was offered at 5.17 pm. Swami gave Prasadam trays to students and blessed all from the balcony before retiring for the day.
