About the Author

Ms. Khurshid Dabdi, is the founder of Sunbeam, an NGO that works 1500+ underprivileged children, in the field of education, in the city of Mumbai.
Apart from her professional life, she believes she is blessed by the consistent guidance from her guru, Sri Sathya Sai Baba who has helped her develop into a better human being. into someone who believes that all of humanity and she herself are sparks of the divine. Via His innumerable spiritual messages to her during her lifetime, He has taught her that by adopting the path of karma each of us can be an instrument in bringing about a positive change in the lives of the less fortunate.
In submission to His will, she has penned her life experiences that have taken the form of the series of 'A Glimpse of Joy (Journey with the Divine). These volumes speak of her guru's tireless efforts towards her personal development and growth, and also how He has assisted her in living out His teachings.


My autobiography (Volumes I to III) is a simple manual on my own personal development. To begin with, let me share with you in brief, the growth of my relationship with the Divine as it progressed. And my dear guru, Sri Sathya Sai Baba's tireless effort at improving my spiritual vision - giving me a larger perspective and opportunities to experience God as the indweller of every human being.
Since my childhood, in the saintly company of dear old Maiji (my) parents' guru), I had felt the presence of something mysterious but acceptable. What that something was, I couldn't fathom, and somehow, I hadn't ever felt the need to know. Soon I saw reality as it truly was. It was the unconditional love and guidance of an unseen power above us all.
A gentle subtle awakening had begun changing my life forever. One day divinity took the form of Baba who entered my life. There were times when the world seemed transformed, as if I had stepped into the presence of an almost unfathomable mystery which seemed to be drawing me to itself.
In my life I attempted to demonstrate my convictions by giving expressions to my faith in the form of complete surrender to the Divine Will. This I was able to do regardless of the consequences because of my convictions. My progress that finally began from mid 1986 onwards was not smooth, but stumbling. Gradually, I moved towards the understanding of self and at times even realized it for brief periods.
Friends, I hope not to be judged too harshly by the first half of this Volume for demonstrating my utter immaturity of taking the Divine messages in the literal sense, thereby misinterpreting them and causing myself and others untold misery.
