In 1967 when Bhagavan Shri Sathya Sai Baba visited Kerala, He traveled through Muthalamada, in Palakkad District, to the Palace of the Royal family of Kollangode. At that time he declared “There will be a temple of Mine in this place and many people will find solace to their woes here.”(Shirdi Sai Baba and Parthy Sai Baba are one and the same and Parthi Sai Baba has only been installing idols of his previous avatar.)
In 2005, Sunilji had a vision in which Baba told him to make His mandir at an open space near Sunilji’s residence. Thus the idea for the mandir was conceived. The initial idea was to install a “life size” idol of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba. While contemplating on this, a message was given by Baba to Sunilji that a smaller idol will do and with its vibration He himself will make it bigger.
Later, in June 2006 Sunilji visited Shirdi and many miracles took place. The small Baba moorthy which was gifted to Sunilji by the priests of Samadhi mandir started producing sacred ash as soon as it reached Sunilji’s house in Muthalamada. Thus Baba confirmed His will and blessing for the Mandir.He also confirmed His presence in Muthalamada. As Baba says, “Miracles are my signatures”.
Just as the discussion of the building of Shirdi Baba Mandir was on at Sunilji’s residence, Mr.Shevilampi Shekhar, the engineer who worked on the projects of Puttaparthy arrived there and told Sunilji that he would like to help, if there are any construction activities. He was not informed or was aware of the temple project at Muthalamada. He has also been involved in some projects at Shirdi.
Baba’s leelas are unfathomable. It was Baba’s will that brought the same engineer to Muthalamada. Apart from the vibhoothi thats flowing from Shirdi Baba statue, similiar miracles are happening at every point.
I have created a small collage of pictures of Sunilji, his interaction with spiritual personalities and some vibhuti manifestations in his presence. Jai Sai Ram!
