Thanks Tom. I was looking for someone's personal experience. I knew she had to have more than just waking state personality driving her.

Tom T:
I had the opportunity to visit Sai Ma in Chicago about 3 years ago.
When 6 different people invited me, I knew it was a cosmic invitation.
The facility we were in was also hosting a 1958 Class reunion right
next door with those thin partitions. The rock and roll music was very
loud so we ended up doing some chanting and dancing cause there was no
way you could hear anything she would have said with the rock and roll
going on in the next partition. When the DJ finally took a break she
began her discourse/sermon/teaching. After she had been talking about
2 minutes she laid out a Mahavakya and I laughed hysterically. Those
who live in FF know me by my laughter even when they don't know me
personally. Sai Ma turned to her right, as my wife and I were seated
in the front row far right corner, and stared very intensely and I of
course stared right back. After about a minute of staring she turned
back to the audience (maybe 100 or so) and announced "He Knows". The
rest of her talk went the same way. She would talk and about every
minute or two I would laugh and she would say "He Knows". This went on
for about 30 minutes and after a while the audience began to laugh at
the same Mahavakyas as I did. For me it was a very interesting
validation of my experience and understanding. She seemed to genuinely
enjoy the laughter and would smile every time I laughed. What that
meant for her I have no idea but I felt totally validated. The next
day the Chicago Times had a story about the gathering, her and the
weekend intensive. There were two pictures with the article. One was a
1 inch by 2 inch picture of Chalanda Sai Ma and the other was and 8 by
10 of Cindy and I plus two other attendees. Of course I was mostly in
the center. I thought that was also very funny. When I left the Friday
night gathering one of the devotees wanted to know if I was staying
for the intensive and I responded that I had gotten all I needed and I
had repaid her validation with my laughter. The devotee couldn't
understand why I wasn't staying. I have found out that I don't have to
follow anything other than my own laughter and the laughter seemed to
think she was very awake and very funny. I have also found that most
of the other teachers I run into tell me the same kind of jokes that
most of the audience doesn't get. Tom
