Vlado Dairedzhiev Story With Baba Vanga – poet, singer, and geography teacher in Petrich
Vlado has been close friend of Baba Vanga for a long time. He is also a close friend to Dimitar Valchev – Baba Vanga’s adopted son. In 2000, Vlado had published book of poetry dedicated to Baba Vanga that contained 12 poems. Some of those poems, are also made into songs. In 2015, Vlado will be publishing a book named “This is What I Saw and Heard From Baba Vanga”, where he will describe in details some of the most remarkable stories that he witnessed during his meetings with Baba Vanga.
Baba Vanga was a very strong character. She loved live very much, yet she was living it very simple, very modestly, naturally. She wasn’t hypocritical at all, even though she had amazing diplomacy skills. She didn’t allow people around her to have fights, and she had the ability to unite people. She was completely indifferent if people were Bulgarians, foreigners, gipsies, communists, etc., – what did matter to her was whether someone was a good man, and if he was not, how she can help him open his mind to become a better person. There was a lot of hidden philosophy behind Baba Vanga’s words, and many times I had to spent a long time, to understand what did she really meant.
Baba Vanga was a suffering soul. She was typically carrying her own pain and suffering silently, without trying to transfer some of this unbearable burden onto someone else.
