Sai Brother Shekar Ji from Mauritius says: It is just blissful, divine bliss, the sensation of an out of body experience, which I once had during my visit in India. Thanks Hetal Ji to allow this wonderful experience, given to me by Sai Baba, to be shared and I am ever thankful to my sweet Lord to grant me such a blissful experience, making realise that we are really enclave in this body and how real freedom is when we join with the divine.
That Morning at Whitefield, Bangalore, after the morning Darshan of Sai Baba, I retired to my room. Still I was dressed in white and lying on my bed (in sleeping posture, face up) reading a Sai book. The Topic, I was reading, relates to a great devotee, who was clinically dead and whom Baba revived. So he talked about his experience 'out of body', which was very fascinating.
I made a silent wish longing for an out of body experience too “Not being dead ... of course”. Almost instantly, I fell into a semi asleep and I sensed Baba's presence near me and taking hold of my hands. I moved up from the bed and saw myself flying upwards “standing position” with Baba holding my hands. I could see my physical self lying, asleep, on the bed with the book against my chest. As we flew up and up, I was feeling so light, blissful and cannot really find words to describe that sensation. Baba asked me how I felt and don't think I gave an answer, as I was enjoying that blissful state. It was so marvelous that I did not want to come back. Somehow, we came down and I got back into my body and instantly woke up.
Wow! I realised what an experience and I knew I was not dreaming but that it happened actually. To be double sure and to enjoy that state again, I closed my eyes and requested to experience it one more time. And it happened within seconds. I was out of my body again with Baba holding my hands as I flew up into the sky with Him. This time we flew further up and I could hear the sound “Ooommmm, Oommmmm” all around. It was so pleasant and appealing, like things cannot be described. Then again I was brought back into my body.
Once I opened my eyes, still under this ecstasy, I craved for one more 'ride' and so responded my loving Lord as He again took me for another ride. This time we went much higher up again, passed the place of the “Oommmmm” sound and getting even more blissful.
Suddenly Baba asked me if I want to continue, but warns me it's going to be dangerous, or I want to get back. Somehow I requested to get back and so He did.
Once back, my eyes opened and this time I woke up and sat on the bed, recalling this experience and still under the ecstatic state. What an experience! Thank you my Lord to grant such favour and thank you to make me realise my true nature, which is not to be restricted to this Gross Body.
Thank, my Lord, to, prompt me to share this experience to the world over. Jai Sai Ram. You really are an unlimited Ocean of love and compassion!
