Great Photo of Sathya Sai delight & wonder at his own miraculous creation of Krishna idol

The above pic has what seems to be a Krishna idol manifested by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba on an evening/night on the Chitravathi sands. The Krishna idol seems to be placed on top of a lit electric torch (long one).

Swami's eyes and face, IMHO, reflect delight coupled with wonder at his own creation. And the faces & eyes of Shri Kasturi and two of the young men seated to Swami's left (right in the photo) all of whom have a clear view of the idol, reflect that wonder too!

What a great & blessed photo this is, as it has captured the wonder & delight of the Sathya Sai Avatar at his assumed human form's creation of an idol of a former human form (Krishna) of his! Thanks to both the photographer and the person who shared this photo on the Internet for all Sai devotees to enjoy (for FREE) :-).

Given below is a comment exchange with Shaun Brown who was OK with sharing his comment on this free blog.

Ravi, Howard Murphet used to tell us the same thing that you have said - that when Swami materialised something, it was His face that would light up with surprise and delight even more than that of the devotees! He said that Swami would have the most childlike expression of wonder and delight on His face, and that delight is what we see shining on His face in this photo.

Great to hear that, Shaun Brown as they confirm the view from an eyewitness and famed chronicler of the early phase of Swami's mission. BTW Murphet's Man of Miracles was the first book on Swami that I read and I was blown away by it :-). I also had a chance to convey my gratitude in a few words in person, sometime in or after 2003, to an elderly Howard Murphet outside Sai Kulwant hall. May I share your words on my free spiritual blog ravisiyer.blogspot.com for the benefit of its readers?

Sai Ram Ravi, very happy for you to share these words. I used to spend a bit of time with Howard in the late 1990's and early 2000s and I'm glad to hear that you had a chance to meet him. The first book I read on Swami was also one of Howard's - Sai Baba Avatar. We both found that we felt our experiences with Swami had not been given to us simply for our own enjoyment or upliftment. They are a gift which has to be passed on to future generations so that they continue to give joy. I know Howard would be very happy with the work that your blog is doing in giving people the opportunity to remember God. Sai Ram and thank you for all that you are doing.

Thanks. Entirely agree that our experiences with Swami are a gift which has to be passed on to future generations to give joy and to give FAITH. Thank you for the kind words about my blog. They add to my inspiration to share Swami mahima (glory) and teachings on my blog.
