As we moved closer to April 24th, lot of SSpiritual action!
A brief trip to karma (bhoomi) region.
The beauty of being under Swami's Grace, to be able to part of such events and to be in satsang with so many great folks... great experience!
Of course, it is just divine grace to participate... To have been blessed with the awareness, faith and love for Sai.
Got to travel with son, on his summer vacations, was extra fun too ( desert safari included!)
The sessions had a very powerful effect on me... felt spirutally dazed, I must add. But as I checked for morning update on news, got to watch the program on Asianet (malayalam) channel !! That was totally unexpected & had a calming effect on me, surely
The trip back home was so very comfortable ( I am pleasantly surprised all my recent trips have been totally smooth & hassle free ! Too good to believe, compared to my past experiences :) No complaints, just gratitude!)
It was blissful one & half day of spiritual retreat - brilliant arrangements, wonderful collage of videos and very inspiring sessions
Most importantly, few inspiring take aways...

Simplicity - best city
Chinna Katha - simple, beautiful stories
"GO BACK", Swami = go back to your Source
Divinity has to be 'experiened'
Spirituality = to live at spirit level
Start today the sadhana you wanted to start tomorrow - start NOW !
