Divine Experiences of Shri Phani Kumar

[By Shri Phani Kumar]

First Miracle:

Padanamaskaram Swami!

Swami has recently given me a miraculous experience. I would like to share that experience with you all. I hope everyone remembers the miraculous experience that I shared during last Satsang. In that miracle, Swami miraculously appeared before me and did operation to cure my knee injury caused due to a bike accident. Few months back I was in Hyderabad with Swami, He asked me a question, “Are you associated with your soul or are you associated with your body?” I replied to Swami that I am associated with my soul and not my body. Listening to my reply, He smiled and said, “Okay”. I couldn’t understand why Swami asked this question. Later on, Swami came to Vijayawada during the Sankranti festival. I was there with Him and had a very close spiritual discussion with Swami. As we discussed, Swami said, “You have to cross your ‘I’. Even the experience of crucifixion is less painful than maintaining that ‘I’”. I surrendered to Swami saying that I didn’t know how to cross ‘I’ and that He must only help me in doing that.

During the first week of March, on Tuesday, Swami did a miraculous operation on my Knee and it was completely cured. After 4 days from that day, on Saturday, I happened to go to a temple along with Kum. Purnima and Shri Hrushikesh. They both came to Vijayawada on a personal work. We just thought of going for a walk and as we walked, we were discussing Spiritual Knowledge. We were so much absorbed in the Satsanga that we reached the banks of ‘Krishna’ river. On the opposite side of the bank, we saw a new temple of Lord Venkateshwara being constructed. It is known as Vijayakeeladri. Goddess Kanakadurgamma temple was also present on the same side of the river where we were but since it was a ‘Poornima’ day, there would be a lot of rush in that temple. We thought we will just go to Lord Venkateshwara’s temple.

Since our plan was to go for a walk only, I was wearing shorts. We reached the temple but I didn’t want to go inside the temple because I was wearing shorts. I asked both of them to go inside and have darshan and told them that I will have my darshan from here itself. Shri Hrushikesh was insisting me to come inside saying that they would allow me. There was a custom there to wear proper dress(dhoti) while going into the temple and I didn’t want to violate it. I asked Shri Hrushikesh to go and get a dhoti if it is available nearby so that I can wear it and go inside. He went around and searched thoroughly. Since it was a newly constructed temple, no one was selling dhotis. Then, he found a Saint sitting there and asked him if he could help get a dhoti. The Saint enquired Shri Hrushikesh for whom he wants the dhoti. Shri Hrushikesh told him that the dhoti is for his brother so that he can wear it and go inside the temple. Then the saint ordered the temple priest to give the ‘Shesha Vastram’ to Shri Hrushikesh. The priest went inside the temple and was searching for the ‘Shesha Vastra’ which is the cloth used for covering the statue of Lord Venkateshwara.

The priest searched for it in the “Garbha Gudi” and came out of the temple shrine with empty hands. Immediately, he ordered someone to go all the way to the city and get some dhotis. Shri Hrushikesh came to me and narrated whatever happened inside. He also told me that the dhoti would be brought to us soon. As Shri Hrushikesh was searching for dhoti, I was sitting outside the temple and was thinking about Swami. Following were my thoughts, “Swami did everything for me and I don’t have desires anymore. I just want to merge into Swami.” Thinking like that, I have got so emotional that I reached the state of madness. Such amount of excitement came to me and I told both Kum. Purnima and Shri Hrushikesh that I don’t want anything else except Swami. They were unable to understand what I was telling them. My Soul just wanted to merge into Swami. That moment, the person who went to bring some dhotis, had brought a bundle of new dhotis and gave one of them to us. I was a little disappointed looking at that new dhoti. As a servant of God, getting Swami’s Shesha Vastram is getting Swami’s Prasadam.

Wearing that new dhoti, I went inside the temple and got Lord Venkateshwara’s Darshan and then I was sitting at some corner of the bench. I was thinking that the kindest Swami even arranged this new dhoti for me. Suddenly my entire past flashed in my mind and I remembered all those moments where Swami took care of all my needs no matter how small they were. With all of those beautiful thoughts running in my mind, I was so excited and took out my soul from my body and touched the heart of the Lord.

That exact moment a boy (who had a tuft of hair at the back of his head and was wearing a namam on his forehead, T- shirt and a Jeans pant) came running to me. He came very near to me and threw a rose garland at my chest and asked me, “Do you want this garland? It is God’s garland, the one which He wore.” Looking at that garland I was in shock; I was unable to even respond or even offer my namaskaram to him. While I was in that shock, that boy came running with another big garland and put it on my neck. I was already in shock and when that boy put that second garland around my neck, I experienced a bigger shock. After all that happened, my mind again slipped into the thoughts of merging into Swami. I just wanted to be with Him forever. I assumed that the boy had put those garlands on me in order to bring me back to the normal state. I sat in that state for about 30 minutes and then we started walking towards our home.

After reaching our home, we started analysing the entire scene that happened at the temple. I was sitting in one corner of the temple where no one can see me. None of us know who that boy is and we never saw him. How did he directly come and put those garlands on me? When Shri Hrushikesh was searching for dhotis, He didn’t notice anyone selling any fresh Rose garlands there. When that boy left me after putting those garlands on me, Shri Hrushikesh wanted to find that boy again but he couldn’t find him anywhere.

On the day of Sankranti, Swami told me to cross the ‘I’ and I told Him that I didn’t know how to do that and Swami Himself has to help me to do it. Exactly after a month from that day, Swami did help me to cross the ‘I’. On that day, my soul literally came out of my body and I was able to experience it. I thank Shri Datta Swami from the bottom of my heart for giving me that experience. I am His servant as well as His slave. I want to be at His Lotus Feet forever.  I beg Swami to give me His service for all the lives to come. If there is any mistake, please forgive me Swami. As I tell you all about this, I am experiencing such intense emotion again. Again, I am getting the desire to merge in Swami but I am His servant, so, I will only do whatever Swami wants me to do. Please accept me as Your servant Swami, that’s my small request.

Shri Datta Swami’s Comments: Ok, Ok… You were always with me, You are with me and You will also be with Me always.

Second Miracle:

This happened very long back. Those were the days when Swami used to go to college and come back and stay with me in Vijayawada. This miracle is regarding a black magic done against us i.e., me and Ajay garu. Everybody knows that Ajay garu and me work for UTI Mutual funds. With blessings of Datta Swami, we used to get lot of business. So, people were more jealous of us. One of the persons is of even higher jealous. He did black magic against us. Before this incident, I used to sit in UTI as a financial adviser, Ajay garu is the Manager. I used to give applications to the investors. That person came and thrown me out of the chair on to the ground in front of many people. Then I was little bit disappointed because it happened in front of all the people. After coming back, I narrated the incident happened in the office to Swami. Swami asked me whether you want to take revenge or leave it to Swami to take revenge. If you forget about revenge, Swami will take revenge. Give it to me. Never think about it. You be happy and peaceful. Then I have given up the thought of the insult. The same person has still got lot of anger on me and Ajay garu both. He did the black magic. 40 days he did something. I used to experience what he is doing i.e., black magic. I am able to see and know the magical things happening there. Then I can able to understand everything happening there. They pierced a nail in my chest and body parts. I am able to sense it. One day, I asked Swami what these fellows are doing like this. I am able to experience it. I asked Swami whether these are right. It will never touch you. One small black insect is coming and keep on scratching on my body. It happened like that for all the 40 days. I informed Swami about the scratches on the body and showed them also. Swami showed lot of similar scratches on His body also. Swami told we should enjoy these scratches. It is not going affect on us. These scratches relax us. We will enjoy these scratches. Then I also started enjoying them and ignoring whatever happened so far.

That time my sister-in-law and my brother used stay in Hyderabad and used to come here now and then. During that time my grandmother died and so, they wanted to visit Vijayawada. They started by train and already was in the train. I informed to Swami that Kanth and Aruna are coming to Vijayawada. Then Swami asked why are they coming now to Vijayawada. He also told me to inform them not to come now, to Vijayawada. Then I conveyed that they are already in the train and message cannot be informed to them due to lack of mobiles during that time. They had already started. Now, I cannot stop them. Then Swami said, don’t worry Phani. It is okay. Let them come. My sister-in-law was pregnant. It is almost 7-month pregnancy. Then they came here and spent two days and went back to Hyderabad. The black magician could not harm me and Swami. That power of black magic captured my sister-in-law. But she was very fine as long as she was here in Vijayawada. There were no symptoms. But, after reaching Hyderabad, she had high fever, behaving erratically like jumping from the bed. She was taken to the hospital. All the tests are done and all are found to be normal. Doctors did not understand why is she behaving like that when all the tests are normal. The temperature is not coming down. It is around 104 deg. C temperature. Immediately, my brother called Swami and informed the situation. Swami told him not to worry about it and you believe Me as God Datta and do whatever I say to you. Swami told that you put some rice, some red turmeric, 3 nails and some other items, which were explained by Him, and make 3 rounds and throw it in the drainage or sewage or flowing river. It is called as ‘drishti’ (process of doing some ritualistic action) in telugu. He did the same. Myself and Swami were in Vijayawada. Swami asked me to see what is happening there and tell me. I told I cannot see because I am scared of these things. I don’t want to see any such things. Swami scolded me and told that ‘these are very petty things to Me and I cannot do it’. You do it. See what is happening there and inform Me. In fact, Swami forcibly asked me to see what is happening there. Swami chanted some mantras, which I have not heard before. Then I was able to see what is happening in the hospital in Hyderabad. While doing drishti, one layer of electric/energetic element surrounded the bed of my sister-in-law. Then from her body, a black thing came out and gone out attracted to that ‘drishti’. I narrated the same to Swami. Swami told it is fine. My brother took bath and went to the hospital. The black negative force wanted to enter my sister-in-law again but because of the energy layer surrounded by her but, that black magic power could not enter and when it touched the surrounding energy, the force got blasted. I could see that. Not even ash is seen. Afterwards, I don’t know what happened to it. Swami told everything is over. Now we can sleep. The next day morning after getting up, I asked Swami what happened in the last night? Swami told that the black magician wanted to kill you, but since it could not affect you, it attacked your sister-in-law. I have withdrawn all the power from him once for all. It will never work anymore because the powers were completely removed by Swamiji. In future, if anybody tries to do black magic, it (that particular power) will not affect because the powers are removed permanently. It is a very petty thing for Swami.

From whatever I know, if some does a black magic against us, we can reverse it. We cannot blast it. Only Lord Datta can blast it. Swami proved that He Himself is Lord Datta. I asked Swami why have You not reversed it. But, Swami due to His highest kindness, gave warning, but not killed them. The black magician informed to that jealous person that they are very kind to us and saved our lives. Otherwise, we would have been no more. If you happen to meet them, turn around and go away from their sight. If you see them, you will not live. So, even today, whenever that person happens to meet us, he will go away in a different route. The black magician told to that person that I am thankful to Swami for giving new life. In that way, Swami saved my sister-in-law and also her son, Shankara Datta. My father used to ask Swami to grant a grandson. Swami told that Lord Datta will grant it. Now, it is fulfilled.
