Aum Sri Sai Ram
Note to Devotees
August 16, 2011
When our beloved Bhagawan in His beautiful physical form was moving amidst us, He used to always lovingly accept our prayers, anxieties and joys submitted to Him through our letters. It is not as if the omnipresent and the omniscient lord was not aware of our pains and pleasures, He bestowed on us this opportunity so that we feel satisfied and fulfilled. Not only this, He also wanted to bless us with the priceless chance of a physical interaction – a glance, a touch, a smile – with Him.
For Sai devotees everywhere, it has been a joyous tradition to offer the first invitations of auspicious occasions like weddings, housewarming ceremonies and so on to Bhagawan. When Swami accepted these invitations and letters with a loving word, a caring glance or a precious padanamaskar – the moment was simply ecstatic. Reliving those moments today touches the core of our beings unimaginably.
Even now when devotees have His Darshan at the Maha Samadhi they pine for that precious privilege of offering their prayers and flowers at His lotus feet.
In response to this request, currently there are three distinct trays placed in front of Bhagawan’s Maha Samadhi one each for placing their letters, flowers and invitations. Those who wish to take them back after placing them on the Maha Samadhi will also be permitted to do so.
If you are offering an invitation and would like to receive Bhagavan's Prasadam, please enclose a self-addressed envelope.
Please offer only flowers, not garlands.
We hope this new service will gladden the hearts of the devotees.
