From 26–28 September 2014, the SSIO of the Dominican Republic organised an innovative National Sai Retreat on the theme, “Living Swami’s Spiritual Legacy.” About 115 SSIO members attended the retreat at a site called the “White House.” Inspiring talks about Bhagawan’s teachings were given, and many devotees shared about their experiences with Swami, bringing tears to the eyes of the audience. Mr. Medrano, a devotee from La Vega, had suffered from deafness for many years. During an exposition about control of senses, Mr. Medrano felt frustrated because he could not hear the talk, although he longed to hear it. Suddenly, he felt a “pop” in his head, and immediately afterwards, he could hear perfectly. He was happy to hear the speaker, and the audience was moved by this display of Bhagawan’s grace.
