God saved Bro.B.Satyanarayana, coming from a Caste Brahmin, Hindu family, loved and served many Hindu Gods, learned Vedas, and even worked as a priest in the Hindu temples. He became blind gradually during his 14th year and for regaining his eye sight he had constructed many small Hindu temples in search of peace and healing, but His deeply religious activity never brought peace of mind or victory over personal sin. Disgusted With his blind and peace less life he attempted suicide by an over dose of 125 sleeping pills. After Lying unconscious for three days he had a pleasant surprise when the Lord Jesus Christ appeared to him in a vision, reveled Himself unto him, saved him and then placed a call on his life. He got baptized in the waters and obeyed the voice after a long physical and spiritual struggle. This commitment for the Lord made him an alien to his family, he is necked out of his house, rejected for his faith and was banned of relationships with any of his family members, not even pitying for this blindness.
