Swami: Where do you come from, boy?
Student: Swami, from Chennai.
Swami: Do you have any leg-problem?
Student: Yes, Swami.
Swami: After coming here?
Swami materialised Vibhuti for him, blessed him, and moved towards the others. Yet another student got up and informed Swami about His neck problem.
Student: Swami, I have neck pain.
Swami: (Mischievously, looking at him) Wear a necklace and the neck pain will go!
|Sri Sathya Sai with Students in Prasanthi Nilayam|
Swami created Vibhuti for him also and put little into his hands. When the student was about to sit, Swami asked him to wait and applied the rest of the Vibhuti on his neck. Another student suffering from fever and diarrhoea was praying to Swami for His attention. Responding to his prayers…
Swami: What is wrong with you?
Student: Swami, fever and loose motions.
Putting his hands on his cheeks and neck … in a mischievous tone…
Swami: 106 degree celsius!
All students laughed, including the sick student. Swami too smiled and said very lovingly…
Student: Swami, loose motions too.
Swami: Take rest it will be all right. (Turning to the other students) This boy came from London. (To the student)You like to go back to London? Or do you want to stay here?
Student: I want to stay here.
Student: Because Swami is here.
Swami: Good boy.
Swami patted his cheek and moved forward.
