Peter Kostadinov About Baba Vanga
I just retired in April, 1988 when I became one of the guards of Baba Vanga. I was taking care of my wife, who was disabled. We were visiting the mineral springs that are in the Rupite, so my wife can have regular baths. One morning, one of Baba Vanga’s guards came to me to ask me if I am interested to work as a guard for the prophetess. Her second guard was drunk driving while taking Baba Vanga home, and they almost got in a car accident. Since this incident, Baba Vanga started to look for a replace.
I did accept, even though my wife needed me very much. I can’t say “no” to Baba Vanga. She did respect me and trust me, so I couldn’t let her down.
I served Baba Vanga for whole 7 years, and was very loyal to her. I had many private conversations with her, where she shared a lot from her life. Often when she finished accepting people for the day, she and I would sit at the bench in front of the house and she would say: “Peter, if you could know how much I’ve been through… When I was 3 I lost my mother, when I was 12 I lost my sight…how much pain, misery, and suffering I had…”
Baba Vanga loved when people were giving her scarves and slippers as gifts. One of her favourite scarves was given to her by Indira Ghandi – it was hand-knitted. Also she had another one that she also liked a lot – given to her by Luydmila Kim who was a famous Russian healer. Sometimes Baba Vanga would publicly share her opinion on aesthetics.
