Dasara Celebrations-Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha, Day 1
Week-long Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha, ensemble of the learned, a tradition set by Bhagawan long ago on the sidelines of Devi Navarathri celebrations, commenced this evening at the Sai Kulwant Hall in Prasanthi Nilayam marked by a talk followed by a Musical offering by the Muddenahalli Campus.
The speaker for the evening was Dr Sai Sathish Ramamurthy from the Department of Chemistry, Prasanthi Nilayam Campus. Delivering a reflective and thought-provoking speech on the unique Bond of Love between The Lord and His devotees, across ages, Dr Sathish brought his scientific know-how as well as scriptural awareness deliberating affectively on the consummate Divine Plan that has resulted in the visible world today. In culmination, Dr Sathish, a scientist with excellent academic credentials, made an interesting attempt to prove the point that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience, with his analytical bend of scientific-spiritual mind.
Bhagawan's Divine discourse next, played on the public address system, followed by a musical offering by the students of SSSIHL from the Muddenahalli Campus. The youngest campus of SSSIHL pitched in with some interesting compositions, fast and exciting, singing paeans to the Supreme Mother Divine seated at The Ultimate Abode of Peace in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Bhajans continued and the session concluded with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
