Sairam friends,

Sai Baba asks for Badam Halwa

I went to Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Coimbatore last evening and felt good. I was coming around holy Dhuni for few minutes. Then, I thought Sai Baba showed me a dream as if a Man living in Shirdi is giving me lots of sweet boxes and asks for 1230 Rs. I am asking him to give me the box with Badam sweets alone and he agrees to it.

I remembered the dream and wanted to offer Badam sweet to devotees in Sai Baba temple. I went to Krishna sweets and asked for any sweet with Badam. The man said that they only have Badam Halwa. It costs 800 Rs for a Kg. I asked the sales women to pack the remaining Badam halwa kept in the plate. While packing she said “There’s more than 1/4 Kg and that she has packed the entire quantity”. I agreed to it and asked for price.

It was 230 Rs. I understood that the dream Sai blessed me with is truly matching the reality. Probably, I have to give sweets for 1000 more Rupees when ever I wish to the devotees. I bought spoon and also scissors because the scissors used to cut flowers was broken.

After the Aarti, I distributed Badam Halwa to devotees and came home.

Planning to travel to Shivamogga popularly known as Shimoga

My Father will be undergoing a small procedure in the Hospital on April 11th 2016. I am thankful to Sai for always living in me as antaryami and guiding me in what ever I do. As of now, I have not done any plans but if Sai guides me further, I will be traveling to Shimoga, Karnataka. It’s my long time wish to go to Bangalore and attend some Tech events there. Somehow, I never left Coimbatore for years. I shall try to meet some friends based on time available in Bangalore and Shimoga too.

I will be taking train to Bangalore and from there to Shimoga officially renamed as Shivamogga, Karnataka.

Write to me so that I might be able to meet you. Atleast in the Railway station.

Samadhi of Sridhara swamy at Varadahalli ( Born -1908)

I usually write about other saints only if I believe whole heartedly they are pure and really have served people. I have read about Sridhara Swamyji in Sree Padha Srivallabha charitramrutam.

His samadhi and ashram is situated in Varadahalli
