Turning to Brindavan Warden, Sri B. N. Narasimhamurthy…
Swami : Tell the good news. (Swami told the news softly to Warden.)
Warden : I have good news to share with you all. We have a student who has completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. at our Institute, and Swami has now blessed him to work on the Heart-Lung machine in the Super Speciality Hospital at Whitefield. His mother had a tumour in the stomach for the last 30 years. No doctor wanted to operate it. She was admitted in our General Hospital last night.
Swami : Not yesterday, this morning. The tumour was removed this morning. There was no pain at all. (Swami asked the student to get up. To all the boys) This boy’s mother. (To the student) What did you pass?
Student : Swami, M.Sc.
Swami : What work you do in the Hospital?
Student : Swami, I am incharge of the Heart-Lung machine.
Swami : Even he didn’t know about the operation. At 1.30 pm, they rang up from the Super Speciality Hospital for blood. He came to know then and took the blood. (To the student) Have you seen your mother?
Student : Yes, Swami.
Swami : Be happy. (Swami then sat on the Jhoola.) Where is Dilshad Khan?
(To Brindavan Warden) You didn’t call him?
B. Warden : Shall I call him?
Swami : (Indicating Sri V. Srinivasan) All India Organisation Chairman.
(Sri V. Srinivasan came forward. To the Brindavan Warden) Introduce him. Great business man, world-renowned, and has been with Swami for over 30 years. (Brindavan Warden introduced Sri Srinivasan. When he mentioned that even Sri Srinivasan’s father was a devotee of Swami)
His father built South Prasanthi. Not with bricks or stone.
Warden then shared that South Prasanthi was built out of precast blocks. Sri Srinivasan took Namaskar and started to speak. In the middle of his speech, Swami asked him to tell about (Prince) Charles. Sri Srinivasan then spoke about how Price Charles, during his visit to India, had specially enquired about Swami from him (when he was the President of the Confederation of Indian Industry). Swami blessed Sri Srinivasan after his speech. Swami then called a teacher.
Swami : Speak about the summer vacations when you went to your place.
(Before the teacher started, to a student) Going to London?
Student : No, Swami.
When the teacher started his speech addressing, “Dear Brothers”, Swami interjected telling, “No sisters?” He told the Sanskrit Shloka starting, “Tyaja Durjana Samsargam, Bhaja Sadhu Samagamam”, Swami completed it, “Kuru Punyamahoratram…” Swami blessed the teacher after his speech. Swami got up from the Jhoola saying, “Hmm… Get up.”
Aarti was offered at 5.30 pm. Swami spoke to a Hospital Boy while going back. While handing over Prasadam trays to the students, Swami picked and showed the day’s Prasadam – mango. He picked a mango, cut across the students and gave it to Sri Ashok Singhal, President of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) who was standing there.
