We tried for special darshan and what not and nothing seemed to be working. Finally, my BIL took a decision to do a special puja costing Rs. 2000 and we got four passes to have the darshan of Lord Balaji too. The puja went off very well and then we had to get into the queue when we saw a board saying that mobiles were not allowed inside.
My BIL had a mobile phone. We were not too keen to leave it at the counter outside as we were very sure that collecting it after the darshan would probably take away precious time and delay our return to Chennai further.
When we were wondering how to avoid it, my sister suddenly told me to pray and we decided to go inside with the mobile switched off. We did not foresee the x-ray machine at the security window. All this was quite new at Tirupati in those days.
I told Amma Bhagavan that we were going in with the cell phone and no one should catch or stop us. We were anyway not planning to use the phone inside. On my sister’s instructions, I took the mobile instrument and put it inside my hand-bag where I usually carry at least one Srimurti.
Lo and behold! The x-ray machine did not show the mobile instrument in my bag. Sounds incredible? But that is the truth.
We had a super darshan and came out. My BIL could not believe that it could have been a miracle. He thought that maybe the security guards just missed seeing the phone. I asked Bhagavan how it could be proved to him. I pulled the mobile out to give it to my BIL and he was amazed to find that it had been switched on. By the way, in those days, I had absolutely no knowledge of mobiles and could not have switched it on to safe my life.
Bhagavan laughingly told me that He had switched it on to make my BIL believe in the miracle.
I was truly amazed at Bhagavan’s love and humorous nature! Yeah, He can be quite mischievous and I just love that quality of Bhagavan's.
THANK YOU BHAGAVAN!
