Shri Datta Swami

Swami stopped the thunderstorm for the welfare of devotee

[By Shri Sai Krishna Chaitanya]

Paadanamaskaram Swami,

With your permission, I would like to share a divine experience that You granted me out of Your infinite kindness and love.

We recently started constructing the first floor and second floor on the top of our house. Shri Veerabhadra anna informed us that, as per my father's horoscope, 27th March was an auspicious day to start the concrete floor slab construction work on the first floor. We wanted to start the work on the 27th as per Bhadra Anna's suggestion, but my father told me that the weather forecast was not in our favor. As per the forecast, a cyclone was to occur in our area that day. However, since the weather was very sunny in the morning of 27th March, we thought that the forecast might not have been accurate and we started the work. By Shri Datta Swami's grace, the work was going smoothly.

At around 1.30 PM, the workers had finished nearly 70% of the work and took a lunch break. Post lunch, they resumed work at 2:30 PM. At that time, the weather slowly started to change. Dark clouds started appearing at 3 PM and it began to drizzle. This was a huge worry for us because the freshly laid concrete was still wet and if it were to rain, all of that would go to waste and we would have to suffer a huge loss. The estimated cost of laying the slab was around Rs. 4 lakh! My uncle then called us from nearby Mangalagiri and informed us that it was raining heavily in his area. He asked us to cover the entire slab with tarpaulin sheets if it began to rain in our locality. 

I prayed to Shri Datta Swamiji, "Swami, please help us! If the rain stops for just around an hour, we can complete our slab work easily." As I continuously prayed to Shri Datta Swami, the intensity of the rain began increasing little by little. I panicked! However, I kept on praying to Swami, hoping that He would help. My mother was also praying to Lord Ganapathi to stop the rain so that the slab work could progress smoothly without any hurdles.

Within 10 minutes, the sun started shining again! It became as hot as it was in the morning. I fully believe that this sudden change of weather was Shri Datta Swami's doing. It is His miracle that saved us from a huge loss. I am a 100% confident about it.

Finally, with Swami's grace, our work was completed by around 4 PM. Post completion of work, there was no rain throughout the day. In fact, there was no rain in our area even on the next day, and our slab set in properly. 

Thank you so much for saving us, Swami!

You gave us a warning about the cyclone in the form of a weather forecast but we ignored it. Even then, You protected us out of infinite kindness. I narrated this sequence of events to my mother as well and told her that it was Shri Datta Swami who saved us by changing the weather. In fact, Shri Datta Swami is Lord Ganapath Himself! My mother and I prayed to the same God. Shri Datta Swami proved that He is the Lord Ganapathi Himself by listening and responding to our prayers.

Thanks a lot to our omniscient and omnipotent Swamiji. I cannot repay the kindness that You continue to show me. I can simply express my heartfelt thanks by sharing this experience.

Pranams to the lotus feet of Shri Datta swami.


Your forever indebted servant,

Sri Sai Krishna Chaitanya.
