When Baba appeared in Bangkok… During World War II...

Bangkok, the capital of Thailand

Tuesday, April 10, 1945

During the World War II (1945), Baba apparitioned in front of a house in Bangkok. He gave some Vibhuti to the lady of the house and told her in her native tongue, to sprinkle it all over the house and disappeared. She noticed that the powder given to her looked like white sand. She sprinkled it all over her house. Within a few minutes all houses in the neighbourhood except hers, were destroyed in an air raid!

Dr. Jumsai with Sri Sathya Sai
Her son, Mr. Art-Ong-Jumsai, became a distinguished scientist and in time won many a prestigious awards. Following great success in his career, he abandoned the pursuit of science and busied himself in the pursuit of God. He and his mother arrived in Whitefield guided by his friends in New Delhi. Baba gave them an interview during which He reminded the lady about the Vibhuti episode during World War II. Baba explained to Jumsai how He had been developing, through successive births, persons who were destined to play a role in His Avataric mission. Finally, Baba asked Jumsai, “When you were about to commit suicide at the top of a mountain in America, who gave you the formula needed for constructing the engine of the rocket?” From the sound of Baba’s voice Jumsai realised that it was indeed Baba who had given him that vital formula. Jumsai realised Baba’s Divinity. Baba asked him to work in the Sri Sathya Sai Organisations helping to spread the Education in Human Values programme in twelve western countries. “You look after My work and I will take care of your business”, He assured him.
