SECOND DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR

The programme for the evening commenced at 1650 hrs. with the Malaysian Choir taking the honours presenting a Spirited Choir programme. Singing tunes of religious universal harmony the youth, comprising both men and women, signed off in style melodiously singing "Akhanda Jyothi Jalaao Sai Mana Mandir Mein...", fervently praying to Baba.

Dr V K Ravindran, Chairman, Zone 4, SSSSO - Overseas then addressed the assembly introducing the ensuing session. Wishing one and all a Happy Holy Chinese New Year, Dr Ravindran introduced the speaker for the session, Brother Yong K W from Malaysia, who deliberated on the theme "Chinese Culture and Traditions".

Brother K W Yong whose maiden pilgrimage to Prasanthi was in the year 1994 spoke of Sai as the Mastermind. Extensively quoting Baba, Yong said: Bhagawan is the Mastermind of our lives; transformation happens when we align our lives with His laws. 

Sai Youth, Youth Vikas from Indonesia, then presented a drama entitled "The Confucius - The Righteous" on the life of legendary Chinese philospher, teacher and Spiritual Master Confucius who lived over 2500 years ago. The presentation was set in a homely background having a grand father and grand daughter engaged in discussions leading unto Sai, Nine Point Code Of Conduct. Caught off guard by the grandfather, for knowing Sai as Everything, but not practising His 9-Point Code Of Conduct, when the girl was perplexed, a consoling and caring grand father, pacified the girl narrating the story of Confucius.

Showing some of the noted incidents from his illustrious life, highlighting his golden rule: "What we do not expect others do to us then do not do it to others", the presentation illustrated how Confucius brought about radical changes in Chinese civilisation, helping the society from the clutches of despicable inhuman rules. Even as he later earned the warth of jealous men in the palace, resulting in him being exiled from the Kingdom, Confucius travelled across the country preaching his philosophy to the eager and anxious ones only to return much wiser helping humanity at large, leaving his footprints in the sands of time.
