Guru Poornima Celebrations-Day 4, Morning

Recapitulating Bhagawan’s teachings, recounting the wonderment of Sathya Sai’s Avataric presence, Prasanthi Nilayam celebrated Guru Poornima today with great devotional fervor.  “Guru Vandana” – a string of devotionals by the students in the morning was followed by two speeches, by Sarvashree Nimish Pandya and George Bebedelis representing Indian and International Sai Organizations.


Speaking first, Sri Nimish Pandya, Vice President, Sri Sathya Sai Organizations – India,  addressing the assembly,  emphasized on the absolute need of ‘Unconditional Love’, the crux of Bhagawan’s teachings. To be part of His Divine Mission, is the greatest opportunity and one should be ever ready to utilize the platform of Sri Sathya Sai Organizations, urged the captivating speaker, emphasizing on practice, the hallmark of spiritual sadhana.


George Bebedelis, an alumnus of Athens University, and an office bearer of Sri Sathya Sai International Organizations – Greece delivered another impressive speech, to the huge gathering,  with rare sparks of ‘practice’ from his own life. The westerner spoke, quoting Indian scriptures and teachings with élan, citing Bhagawan and Sanskrit slokas often, divulging on the essence of man’s ultimate goal, Atma Jnana. The earnest seeker from Greece entertained the assembly with his lucid recital of Telugu and Sanskrit hymns, spark of yearning for Ultimate Truth. He concluded singing, “Love Is My FormTruth Is My Breath…”


Bhagawan’s recorded Divine Discourse was aired through the PA system next.  HE was referring to Sadhana and Navavidha Bhakti, exhorted devotees to follow the path diligently, without giving up, ensuring success. Man is wasting time owing to ignorance. God Is time, Master of time and transcends time, reminded Bhagawan adding that the wisdom that comes out of suffering lasts forever as true bliss​,​ is present in difficulties and trouble alone. In this context Bhagawan also narrated Mother Kunthi’s story of seeking difficulties until her last breath. The Divine discourse came to an end with the Bhajan “Prema Muditha Manase Kaho Rama Rama Ram…”


Mangala Arathi at 1100 hrs has marked the end of morning’s proceedings.
