One with Sai @ Brindavan _ October 2013 edition

Uyyala loguma... Sri Sathya Sai.... Ananda Daayi... that was fitting finale to a truly bliSSful evening. 
The song remained with me well into the evening. I got home & googled the song to get few beautiful renditions by others..... *

As I stepped out of Sai Ramesh Hall, I picked up the prasad 'package' - laddu and Swami's Photo. 
- Laddus always most welcome... :)
- Photo... felt blessed, Swami's both Hands raised in 'abhaya-hasta'. 
  • I presumed (how often we jump to conclusions) it was 2014 calendar, on the other side. But I was more than pleasantly surprised to find Sai Gayatri and Gayatri Mantra printed on the reverse. It was a gentle reminder from Swami to keep focus on Gayatri-chanting, I have been trying these days. He is guiding..
  • Then the quote under the photo really hit me... 'IMMORTALITY IS THE FRUIT OF SACRIFICE' ( all in bold, caps!) That was a response to a query I was carrying during the day, on my professional front. He is guiding... 

Two students of Bhagwan, from Anantpur campus, helped us spent the evening, '(One) with Sai'!

The evening got off to a divine start with veda recitation. Then the group took the stage. 
- They started off with a Ganesh sthuthi and then, a Guru song. 
- Maa by Jagjit Singh was then the next one. A beautiful devotional-song by the ghazal maestro was brilliantly sung by the duo.
- Janani maa is one of the popular bhajans at PSN campus, thanks to some great student-singers. Sri Hariharan, also a ghazal maestro, sang it in front of Bhagwan and the DVD is very popular. 
- The next song's alaap was brilliant, and the song too...
- Madhava Murali and Vittala bhajans got the entire audience to sing along, with wonderful support from the audience
- Mujh ko tera sahara chahiye was a prayer from every one of us. 
- The English song, You are the Lord of my heart and soul was delivered with great finesse. 
- Then, the masterpiece... Uyyala loguma Sri Sathya Sai...

The sisters sang in multiple languages (hindi, bengali or oriya, tamil, telugu, english, etc). It was pure devotional singling. No introduction (or gyaan!), except two sentences during the entire program. ('God is nearest of near, dearest of dear'... Wow!)

The singers, Vidya and Satya, and the group gave the program of highest quality. They were fortunate to be blessed with the opportunity to sing for Bhagwan. We were doubly blessed to listen to a beautiful musical offering... 

At the cost of repetetion, Music is God

Avtar Declaration Day at Prashanthi Nilayam on 20 Oct 2014

Check out the video recording of Avtar Declaration Day at Prashanthi Nilayam, 20 Oct 2013. 

Must Watch...

A beautiful bouquet of offering, compilation of Swami's video, talks and music. Bhagwan's chosen students taking turns to share stories. 

Even at a young age, Swami displayed 'Ceiling on Desires', brought out in the golden-pin He was gifted. His message... His Life.

Purpose of life? 'To go back to the origin', Says Swami. With a beautiful 'Chinna Katha'

Sai Trinity

Tripura Rahasyam

Dassera at Puttaparthi 1

Greetings from Puttaparthi. Delighted to be here for Dassera. With Divine Mother. 

I have always enjoyed the festivals in Prashanthi Nilayam. The core of all celebration is simplicity and spirituality. 

The drive to Parthi was great, last evening. Glad to spot buses, public and private, trucks/trailers and other vehicles, along the way. This part of AP limping back to normalcy?! 

Weather is beautiful. 

Prayers are with people and birds/animals in Coastal AP & Orissa. Prayers can move mountains, minimise impact of cyclone.
