Man loses his vision when he is 'insight' of name, fame and glory, where ego pops up, pushing the 'God' within into hiding. To such a one, only life with experiences brings the best of the lessons, opening him to the true truth. Continuing with the Annual Sports & Cultural Meet from yesterday, as the cultural festival continues, students from the Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School presented a thematic drama titled 'Tuuhi Karam...Tuuhi Kartha' this evening, at the Sanctum Sanctorum in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Keshav, the protagonist in the drama was a sculptor par excellence with rare talent. Despite being blind, he would always do the most stupendous sculpting, a task the God and Guide within would always do through him. As his name and form spread far and wide, with his mastery bringing him accolades, Keshav got helping hand from the local temple authorities to get his eye operated to proper vision.
Back with his normal vision, life turned a full round for Keshav. Now, blinded by ego, Keshav turned to lose his vision to see and understand the Doer behind. His work got rejected one after one and his mastery seemed to be waning. He was assigned with the task of sculpting his masterpiece for the King Of Chandrapur, a Krishna idol, as per God's own guidance. He could not, as the stones on which he was sculpting gave away, breaking into pieces.
Left in the lurch, Keshav had no option than to ponder over, deep in, over and over again. Understanding his folly, that with his physical vision he turned blind by his usurping ego, Keshav turned to Him, His Real One Within...confessing within and without, for his master follies. He wailed to Him...Oh Lord! I am blinded now...these eyes have taken You away from me...and in repentance he was to chisel out his eyes...
His Master appeared in the nick of time, granting the final touch of sculpting...sculpting the real Keshav. He declared: 'You were a mere instrument in My hands Oh child, as I Was The Divine Dramatist."
A beautiful piece of Bhagawan's Divine discourse echoed in the hall, appropriate to the climactic end. A song of Bond Of Love...Oh Sai Tuu Ho Sahaara...Paar Karaado Moh Ki Nayya... followed that brought the curtain down for the beautiful drama presentation.
Bhajans next ended with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
