Sai Rapture ~ The Ecstatic Journey of a Modern Day Gopi highlights the spiritual journey of the author, Sonya Ki Tomlinson. A poet and artist by nature, Sonya Ki's poetic writing style and her great love for Sathya Sai Baba permeate every page of this book. Sonya Ki first found Sai Baba in 1990 and has traveled to India eleven times to pay homage to him as her Sat Guru and to bask in His Radiant Presence. Beginning with the birth of her daughter, she has had many breathtaking experiences, leelas, dreams, and divine contacts with Sathya Sai Baba. Her personal experiences are supplemented by well-selected, enlightening quotations from Sai Baba's discourses. Adding to the brilliance of her own experiences, Sonya Ki sought out a number of her Sai friends and a few stellar dignitaries and former students of Sai Baba whom she diligently interviewed for this book. These include Mr. R. Padmanaban, Sai Baba's past photographer, Father Charles Ogada of Nigeria, Dr. Gnana Bhaskar Tenali, a former student of Sathya Sai University, and Gloria Blake, a nurse at the General Hospital in Puttaparthi... to name just a few. The stories of these individuals are thrilling and spiritually uplifting. Ms. Tomlinson's 'God-intoxicated' ecstatic poems surely add to the sheer enjoyment of this book. With the hand of a true artist, Sonya Ki has masterfully woven all of these myriad parts into a beautiful tapestry of reading pleasure. Clearly, this book was written under the Grace and Inspiration of the Master Author Himself - Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba! Those who read this book will receive great spiritual inspiration and may even feel the blessings of her Swamiji.
