THE BIOGRAPHY OF SWAMI AJAY

   
MR AJAY WHEN HE WAS 24 YRS
 
SWAMI AJAY IN THE YEAR 1994
 
SWAMI AJAY IN THE YEAR 1997
 
After my father’s demise which occurred when I was still a child, the landlord expelled my mother and her three children. Then we moved houses several times and we had numerous problems with people. Finally, we found a house in the north but my mother started having mental problems. In the meantime my elder sister who was married lodged me at her place and the three siblings were separated. My younger brother lived at my mother’s and I stayed with my sister in the North of the Island. After 18 years, I leave the house of my sister and went to live at my aunty’s. So, I came here, to Riviere du Rempart, in August 1989, when aunty (the wife of father’s brother) received me. I started working with my brother as an Attorney Clerk, but my health problems started from 1991- pain in the back, in the belly and I had many other symptoms. Then I consulted several doctors who thought that I was having an ulcer in the stomach. Each time I had a problem, Aunty accompanied me to a doctor or to a clinic. For three or four months, I was hospitalized during the week and came back home during the week-end. When I came out, it seemed that I was better but the sufferings started again and on Monday, I had to go back to the clinic. The illness continued to get from bad to worse. Although x-rays did not reveal anything, the doctor said that I had all the symptoms of an ulcer and he decided to operate on me. However, after the operation, the doctor told aunty that he found nothing. All the organs were healthy and showed no sign of an ulcer or infection. Two or three days later, I came back home for my convalescence but the pain started once again.
 
Moreover, I underwent two ruptures, that is, the stitches burst out and I had to be rushed back to hospital for the stitches to be redone. The doctors ended up admitting that they did not know what to do. From that moment, aunty and I consulted priests or exorcists. I told them that something was wearing me out and making me feel sick and I asked them whether they could remedy my problem. I was given prayers but my condition did not improve; only my money went down the drains! The pain disappeared for one or two hours at most and then came back. I tried to shorten my life, for everybody, the doctors and the family, were telling me that it was difficult to heal me. At that moment, I was in such a frame of mind that I had no hope of being healed. I knew that something was wearing me out but I persuaded that I was not ill. Before coming to settle down in Riviere du Rempart( my Aunty place), I worked very hard till the age of twenty-cutting sugarcane, loading it, etc, and I was never ill. On the contrary, the work as Attorney Clerk was less tiring – leaving in the morning, performing a sedentary job, eating on time, returning home in the evening……. Therefore I used to say that there was no cause for falling sick and that something was triggering that state of fatigue. Moreover, the doctor who had done the x-rays certified that I had absolutely nothing wrong in any part of the body. No one succeeded in relieving my pains. Aunty told me: “You must watch religious films, for that will do you a lot of good.” In despair, I went to a video cassette rental shop in Riviere- du Rempart. I asked the owner if he had any religious film and he proposed to me a cassette on the life of Shirdi Baba. While watching it, I was shaken up. I felt something happening in my body and I started weeping. Quite perturbed, I asked aunty to explain to me who was Shirdi Baba. Being a devotee of shirdi for a long time, herself, she spoke to me about Him. She told me that a temple was dedicated to Baba at Curepipe. I asked her to accompany me there immediately. On arrival, we met the pandit. I told him all my health problems, the failure of medicine and my present despair. I told that I had no more hopes of getting healed and that I am awaiting my death. If I had come, it was because I felt something in me when I was watching that film. The priest said: “Baba will help you. He will heal you.” So, he gave me some vibhuti and said some prayers. Then he gave me a small statue of Shirdi Baba, saying, “Start praying this small statue, it will help you a lot.” When the priest told me that, I again felt something in me. I took the statue in my hands and we left for home. In the bus, I started talking to the small statue: “And now, Baba, it is You who are going to heal me.” People were looking at me and were laughing at me.
 
I continued to suffer but I did not know what to do. I simply had the desire to talk to the statue, for I knew that it was going to heal me. During the whole journey, I continued to talk to it. I was holding it in my hands as if it was a child. On reaching home, I realized that I was feeling better and I was convinced to have found the correct path. I made a small altar on which I placed the small statue and aunty bought a photo of Swami’s feet. We placed Swami’s feet under the small statue, as if Shirdi was seated. I also used the vibhuti given to me by the priest and I found that the amount was not diminishing in the pot. After some time, I pointed out to aunty and she replied to me that it could happen. I continued to take vibhuti very often, without any visible depletion of the stock. I stopped taking it when I was healed. Aunty gave me a lot of prayers which I recited seriously in the morning and one year later, in December 1992, the healing was complete. I returned to work in 1993 with my brother. I was an Attorney Clerk and I was handling papers for the clients. I did all the administrative work on the files which were to be presented to the Court. That work needed experience and I was surprised not to have lost my knowledge in the least in spite of one year’s absence. I had resumed work for three months when I bought a lottery ticket. I prayed to Baba saying to myself : “ If Baba wants it, I am going to win the lottery.” At that time, I still did not know Satya Sai Baba; I knew only Shirdi. Returning after working in the fields, situated behind the house, I noticed that the newspaper with the results of the lottery was on my bed. After verification, I discovered that I possessed the winning ticket and that brought 20,000 rupees. Thanks to that money, I built the house and I performed some religious ceremonies.
 
 
MIRACLES AT SCHOENFELD ROAD RIVIERE DU
REMPART ON STATUE (MURTHI) OF SHIRDI SAI BABA
A Brief Review
It all started on the 23rd of November 1993, when the Murthi (statue) of Shirdi Sai Baba the first incarnation of Shiva showed light around Its head and manifested itself. Honey was coming out of the Murthi(statue).After this phenomenon many prayers were conducted and people visiting the place increased day by day. Many were curious to see what was going on and others came to get the blessings from the Almighty.
 
 
FULL OF HONEY(AMRITA)IN THE PLATE(THALI)
It all started on the 23rd of November 1993, when the Murthi (statue) of Shirdi Sai Baba the first incarnation of Shiva showed light around Its head and manifested itself. Honey was coming out of the Murthi(statue).After this phenomenon many prayers were conducted and people visiting the place increased day by day. Many were curious to see what was going on and others came to get the blessings from the Almighty.
 
On 22nd November 1993 in the afternoon, a friend who was a Shri Krishna devotee told me : “ We do not believe in Baba ; we believe only in Krishna, Shirdi Baba is not an Avatar but just a yogi.”I replied to him : “No, Shirdi Baba is not a yogi ! He is God because he has healed many people and it is thanks to Him that I was healed. His vibhuti gave me a lot of strength. At Shirdi, in India, fire is still burning and many miracles take place there !” But he maintained his point. I was quite sad when I returned home and I pondered over that discussion the whole night. The following morning, I did my prayer and I asked Shirdi: “Baba, why do people think thus of You ? I know that You healed me. I know that You did everything for me. If I am alive today, it is thanks to You, but I want to know that You are here, in the house.” That was 23rd November and I went to work. I still did not know Satya Sai Baba. I knew that my elder brother Oudaye was singing bhajans in a group but I thought that it was Shirdi, not for Satya Sai Baba, for he had never spoken to me about Him. In the office, I was thinking : “ What are You going to do for me ? I will wait for you in the evening. I will wait for a reply from you.” I did not know that the statue was going to manifest anything or not. I was not expecting it. I simply wanted a reply without knowing what form it was it was to take. At work, I was constantly thinking : “On my return at home Baba will give me something, Baba will give me something.” After work, I met my friend and then I returned home in the afternoon. At about 4 p.m., I spoke to the statue of Shirdi Baba : “ I want You to show me that You are here !” and I went to have some food. That day, my aunty was alone with her mother who had come to see her ; her children had gone out. I switched off all the lights in my room, closed the door and went to eat with them. At about 7 p.m., I proposed to them to watch a film on the Ramayana. They accepted and I went back to my room to look for the necessary video cassette. When I entered to take the film, I had not yet switched on the light when I saw the statue shinning in the dark. A light came out of the statue. I stood still for two minutes and I asked myself : “What is this ?” I did not go immediately towards the statue, for I thought : “If I go near the statue, the light may disappear.” I watched for some more time, then went near it slowly and saw that Amrita(Honey) has started flowing. The liquid was coming out and falling on the carpet and I remained seated for five minutes looking at that phenomenon. I said : “ Baba, now, I know that you are really here. I never had any doubt, but I am happy because my prayer has been answered. All that I asked You in my prayer is here. I know that now I have a path to go towards You. There are many people who take many paths. That is why I asked You for a sign, to know whether I was on the right tract. At present, I have the confirmation that all my prayers are heard and answered and that they are bound to take me to you.” I decided to tell aunty that Amrita(Honey) had started flowing from the statue of Shirdi Baba. She pointed out to me that the day 23rd November 1993, was the birthday of Sathya Sai Baba but I did not pay much heed to that. I only knew that I had received a response to my prayer.
 
HOW GOD HAS TRANSFORMED AJAY INTO SWAMI AJAY
 
   
 
On the eighth day, that is the first Sunday of December, the whole Sathya Sai Organisation of Mauritius as well as my family decided to do the first Suprabhatam and the first Nagarsankirtan in Riviere du Rempart. As for me, I knew that Baba had already accomplished all that had to be done. He had shown me His presence. That was enough for me. On the previous day, on Saturday, I had gone on a picnic organised by friends. Usually, when I am in a group, I sing, dance, and entertain people but this time, I was different ; I was feeling lonely. Something strange was about to happen to me. On that day, of course I did not eat flesh, but I tried to drink beer but somehow, could not. My friends had gone to visit the gardens and as for me, I stayed alone in the bus with a small bottle of beer but I was unable to drink it ; I did not know what was happening to me. When I returned home at about 8.30 p.m., the bhajans were already over. Before going to the picnic, I had placed on my bed, in my room, three photos of Swami which the President of the Organisation of Mauritius Brother Shiva Somanah had given to me and a portrait of Shirdi, offered by a friend. I did not into my room directly. I took a bath and changed my clothes. When I entered my room, I saw that Aunty and my brother had already placed the photos in the prayer room with flowers. A few minutes later, my brother asked me if I wanted to offer my prayer to the photos. I replied : “No, if I bless the photos, I feel that Honey(Amrita) will flow and if Amrita flows, it will destroy the pictures and everything will be spoilt.” “But if that happens, they said, it is good, it is a message.” Then I obeyed them and I performed my prayers. Hardly four or five seconds after the prayer had started then honey came out of the photos. My brother told me then that the tray of the statue of Shirdi was too small. He therefore advised me to remove it to place a bigger one on its place. Although it did not please me, I fulfilled my brother’s wish but I knew that if the statue with its tray was displaced, everything was going to stop. In fact, as soon as the change was effected, Amrita(Honey) stopped flowing. All that happened on Saturday. The Suprabhatam and the Nagarsankirtan were planned for the following day. What would people say ? I did not know anything about that. It was already eleven O’clock at night. I Changed myself and lay on bed to sleep. I felt something hot coming out of my ears and from my head, actually from the whole body. I asked myself what that was. That produced a lot of heat. When I looked up in the mirror, I saw honey flowing from my body and I started weeping. I ran to my aunt’s in that state and asked her : “What is this ? What is happening to me ?” I was feeling a lot of heat, not pain, but only heat. That irritated me a lot as it was flowing from my ears, my nose and from all over the body. I bathed twice but the phenomenon continued.
 
At the time when miracles happened on the statue, I was advised to do the japa : “ Om Sai Ram” .so I went back to my room, with the family which followed me and I recited : “ Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram….”,very fast, so that Amrita would stop flowing. I started saying that loudly. After some twenty minutes, for the first time, I saw Swami in front of me, in His physical form, in his white robe smiling. I had never seen sathya sai baba but I said: “Swami !” That word came out spontaneously from my mouth. I tried to touch his robe and I started calling : ”Aunty, look at Swami; Baba is here!” but no one could see him. Baba was standing and on the floor there was honey coming out at that place where he was and that was proof of His Presence. He took a finger of my right hand and made me walk over a distance of two metres, then he directed me towards the statue of Shirdi and as for me, I was walking like a toddler. He left at each of His steps the imprint of Amrita on the floor which others could see. When Swami neared the statue, He diminished in size to become very small and He penetrated the statue of Shirdi. At about one O’clock in the morning, I removed the big tray putting back everything as before and Amrita started to flow again. Then, I took a bath for the third time and went to bed again. I do not know what took place. In the morning, aunty narrated everything to my elder brother and when he entered the prayer room, he saw that vibhuti and Amrita had appeared on all the photos which were blessed. Then, my brother Oudaye came to wake me up. When I got up, I did not feel that I was the same person and during five or six seconds, I did not recognize my brother. I asked : “Who is that?” I had strange sensation. When I wanted to walk, I had the sensation of not touching the floor but of being a little above and I wanted to weep at each step. People started pouring to get more informed about me. Through all these Divine Manifestations, I felt that I was not the same person, Ajay and my life even changed completely.
