Monday, Nov 23,2009 - Sri Sathya Sai Baba Birthday

Om Sairam dearest Sai family,  The birthday of our beloved Lord was celebrated grandly at the Abode of our beloved Lord Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Puttaparthi, the holy abode which witnessed the birth of the Lord of this Kali age was blessed again to celebrate the 84th Birthday. Thousands thronged to this holy land and words are not enough to express the happiness among those people who were blessed to be born in the surroundings of this holy land..It is a matter of pride happiness and contentment for all of us here and thousands come to Puttaparthi to wish the Lord of the Lords, the Lord who has neither a beginning nor an end. that Swami who is eternal and immortal it is only His immense grace and love for us that He allows us to celebrate 23November every year as His birthday..

Puttaparthi and its surrounding were jam packed. .All the streets were full and there was hardly any place even to stand.. The gents line touched Hanuman temple and people were standing in the lines since 2am in the morning. Inside it was the same scene. Stringent security arrangements were made for the big day and the mandir was beautifully decorated.

Inside the Sai Kulwanth hall it was just beautiful.

There was a big arch like thing on which 84th birthday celebrations was written.. It was announced yesterday that the birthday programme would start at 9:30am. Every one were eagerly waiting for our beloved Lord on His (body's) birthday. It was 9am and the Prasanthi Campus boys, primary school children with their bag pipers and Anantapur campus sisters with their full fledged band and vedam chanting boys were eagerly waiting for the Lord by His residence..

Around 10am the long wait was worth while when our beloved Lord gave His most divine darshan which also commemorates 84 years of the Advent. The Band from all the campuses came in first, later the vedam boys and then Swami clad in a beautiful white robe seated on a golden colour car chair blessed those lucky souls who could make it to the Sai Kulwanth Hall.. As soon as Swami entered the hall, two little girls, bit shy, offered rose to our Swami and Swami moved forward to bless all the ladies' seated there. Then it was turn of sisters from Anantapur, who were watching Swami with tears in eyes, Swami very sweetly smiled back  ...continue reading with more photos


The 28th Annual Convocation of Sri Sathya Sai University
Posted at 18:55:12 Hrs. IST on 22 Nov 2009

On the auspicious 22nd November morning, at the end of an hour long inspiring
Divine Discourse, Bhagawan, praising His students, asked them to sing a song in unison! And they sang the famous song of Divine Romance, a student composition: “Hum Ko Thum Se Pyaar Kithna…” After the song Bhagawan said, His hunger was satiated.

Vidya Amritam - Convocation Drama - 21st Nov 2009
Posted at 22:10:00 Hrs. IST on 21 Nov 2009

Bhagawan defines education as Vidya - that which illumines the life of man with the light of Divine joy. And in His glorious mission of rejuvenating and revamping the present educational system, the Lord chooses His instruments – the instruments through whom the Divine wisdom flows to the younger generations.

The Convocation drama 2009, Vidya Amritham, is based on the story of one such instrument in the Hands of the Divine, Prof. Gururaj.

Thursday, Nov 19, 2009 - Ladies' Day

November 19th has been celebrated as Ladies' Day by Bhagavan and all activities are done by ladies on this day. Smt. P. Susheela began the day by chanting the Suprabhatam at half-past five and the Vedam chanting before the Nagarasankirtan was also by Swami's girl students as on earlier years. The programme in Sai Kulwant hall began ten minutes after nine with Swami being welcomed by a procession consisting of the Anantapur brass band and Vedam chanting students. After His darshan round Swami lit a lamp onstage just before 9.30.

There were two speakers, with an introductory speech by Mrs. Chetana Raju. Mrs. Sharon Sandwiess of the USA and Mrs. Harriet Tay-Agbozo of Ghana spoke of their experiences with Bhagavan. The speeches were followed by five-minute dances by children from the Sai schools of India, Indonesia, Mexico, Fiji, Thailand and South Africa. After their presentation, Swami went among the participants and gifted them with photo frames. It was 11.15 when He came back onstage and asked for bhajans by the ladies to begin. Ten minutes later, He accepted Arati and left for His residence after blessing the giant cake placed onstage.

Before retiring to Yajur Mandiram, Bhagawan graciously cut the Ladies’ Day special cake prepared by a special group from Italy

In the evening, Swami came for darshan at 4.45 pm, led by Vedam chanting students and the Primary school bagpipes band, flanked by small girls bearing welcoming plates with lamps. The programme commenced at five o'clock with choirs by devotees from Greece and Holland. The music was followed by a 70 minute Telugu drama 'Draupadi Charitra' by devotees from Hyderabad. After the drama, Swami blessed "Draupadi" with a chain and went down for group photographs. He then called them up one by one to the stage to receive photo frames. It was past seven o'clock when Swami left for His residence after Arati. Sri Ashok Singhal of the VHP and Malayalam film star Sri Mohanlal were also among the congregation.

After the traditional Rathotsavam in the morning, the packed Sai Kulwant Hall had to endure a long wait in the evening.

It was penance for the capacity crowd that waited for four long hours. The long wait finally found fulfillment when Bhagawan came out at 6:40 for a complete round, feasting the eyes, filling and fulfilling thousands of hearts, minds and souls with bliss unlimited.

Ratotsavam in Prasanthi Nilayam comes as a forerunner to the grand Birthday Celebrations of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. ..And ever since its inception many years ago, this festivity has been a fixed schedule for the

Gearing up for Divine Birthday

"Gearing up for Divine Birthday"  Posted at 03:30:00 Hrs. IST on 17 Nov 2009 Gearing up for Divine Birthday

"The week in the run up to the
birthday celebrations has been busy as Prasanthi is gearing to match herself with the tempo of the ensuing grand occasion. One could see scores of sevadal volunteers engaged in sprucing up the Poornachandra facing the Divine Abode, an action that would be replicated in every inch of Prasanthi in the run up to the festive occasion. As if showing up for a trial run, neon bulbs were already glittering atop the Divine Abode heralding the imminence of the birthday celebration. …And at the other end, the famous Italian group is seen in action shaping up the Birthday Cake...

The week had interesting developments apart from the best of all, the feast for the eyes, hearts, minds and souls…His Divine Darshan!

Auspicious Thursday, 12th November, resembled a Krishnashtami celebration as number of cows to be donated to the Mantralayam temple were brought into the Sai Kulwant Hall for Divine Blessings. Bhagawan, upon coming from His Divine Abode, blessed these quadrupeds attending to them while bhajans were on. The scene was enacted once again when Bhagawan chose to come out of His interview room for yet another bout of blessings. Bhagawan most lovingly fed these cows to the delight of thousands, including the tiny tots from the primary school, who were present for the morning darshan, being auspicious Thursday. The Mantralayam temple was badly hit,

losing hundreds of quadrupeds apart from human casualties, during the recent floods that created havoc in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. It is learnt that a total of eighty four cows would be donated to the temple, in His name, on the auspicious occasion of Bhagawan’s birthday.

Birthday comes the annual convocation of Sri Sathya Sai University. The convocation every year brings thematic drama presentation by the students of Sri Sathya Sai University. With the drama troupe gearing up to rise to the Divine benchmark, Bhagawan made a personal “Super-Vision” at the Institute Auditorium giving a fillip to the enthusiasm that was already building up....Continue reading with photos & picture slides
