Tribute to His Holiness - 24 April 2013

Apr 23 (3 days ago)

Loving Sairam to all of you on the eve of Mahasamadhi Day of His Holiness Revered Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba…!!!

On this occasion,I take this as an opportunity to forward herewith an article in the form of a letter addressed to all by Principal (Dr.) Shripad R Zarapkar, former Principal, Siddharth College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai, India.

Dr.Shripad Zarapkar recalls and recapitulates Divine Messages and Teachings so as to enable us to reconstruct our minds in letter and spirit, for enhancement in terms of human welfare and peace.

This article will make the reader realise that the Avatar of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has not only preached the same universal teachings but also went miles further in implementing the same in terms of Educare, Medicare, Agricare and Sociocare and also towards spiritual upliftment of genuine seekers all over the world. The unifying force of Universal Divine Love reflected in the article, if practiced, will take the reader from Untruth to Truth, from Ignorance to Illumination and from Mortality to Immortality.

Drawing attention to our role in His Divine Mission,in one of the discourses Swami instructed,

“……. Active workers engaged in service should realise that there is ​no​ thing greater than service and seek to promote Love of God, Fear of Sin and Righteousness in society as the highest values to be cherished by all. Indeed if there is Love of God, automatically there will be Fear of Sin and when these two are there, Morality follows as a natural sequence ………… There should be no pretense in manifesting love. It should be based on the conviction that the Divine is present in every one, Do not arrogate to yourself any authority or power and claim credit for any achievement. All your name and fame are due to your association with Sai Organisations and the use of the Sai label. …….. It is the Sai Name that has conferred on you distinction and recognition. Therefore, bear in mind the Name Sai and carry on your work.

All should work together and share in harmony, act together, move together, grow together and share the common knowledge and experience with all. We want people who will completely identity themselves with the organization.

The direct individual relationship between each of you and Myself will remain always. If our relationship can be strengthened through the Organisations I shall feel happier.”

I think it would be appropriate for all of us to contemplate on what Swami instructed us while carrying out His Mission from time to time.

Warm regards,

Indulal Shah

Second Mahasamadhi Day Comes to an End in Puttaparthi

 

Thu Apr 25, 2013 1:55 am

APRIL 24, 2013

Om Sairam dearest Sai Family,

The second Mahasamadhi day, the most auspicious day when Swami decided to reside in His COSMIC FORM in the heart of our hearts was celebrated in a grand way in Prasanthi Nilayam. This day in the year 2011 was full of agony, sadness, disappointment and hopelessness. Exactly two years later, even though there was still that sadness some where in the heart, but we all are very much experiencing Swami within, Life has been very beautiful as we can communicate with Him very easily, So many miracles are just re-assuring that He is very much here and gone no where..

As He has said many a times, "Do My work and I will do your work much better than you would have done by yourself". As Swami every word is SATHYA, we have experienced this many times in our lives and more so after Swami's Mahasamadhi.

Puttaparthi woke up with beautiful memories of the HOLY SON of this blessed soil. It is a hair raising experience just to imagine Swami taking birth in Puttaparthi and sharing all the divine love over the years..

As I entered the Ganesh Gate this morning, the same thought came across the mind. I was imagining, over the years, how many millions would have entered this gate, which is verily the GATES OF HEAVEN, it is every one's dream to enter the gates of this heaven on earth every day..Every sadness of yours, every agony of yours is just vanished as soon as you enter this gate.

I remember one time in darshan, there was this western devotee who had a chance to speak to Swami when Swami came walking. This devotee, like any of us, was putting forth all his problems, his problems seemed to be like a perennial river. Swami: My parents are giving me problem, my children don't listen to me, my work is a problem, my boss is a bigger problem, my neighbors are giving me more problem bla.. bla...


Mean while Swami was reaching out to collect letters from other devotees, while He seemed to be giving a patient hearing to this devotee. When the devotee paused to take a deep breath, Swami looked at him and with a very mischievous smile said, "Ask your mind to shut up" and walked away..

As i was seated very close by to this devotee, i was very sure that Swami actually said those words and to me it was bit funny. I thought, what did Swami say? Is this how God answers? Only after few years that i understood how true Swami was.. Every problem of ours starts with the mind. Swami always said, "Master the mind and be a Master Mind", Don't become slave to your mind rather make it your slave...

Puttaparthi is one such place where there is every opportunity to master this art of Mind management as it is the Holy Abode of Kaliyuga Avatar Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

 

Right from 3 am on wards people from neighbouring villages started to come in big numbers in auto rickshaws and mini vans to Puttaparthi. By 8 am the roads leading to Sri Sathya Sai Hill view stadium were full. Sathya Sai Central Trust authorities had made some excellent arrangements for the Maha Narayana Seva second time in a row marking Swami's Mahasamadhi day.
 


Considering the high temperature, huge tents were raised, with barricades all over. All the devotees were made to sit in the hill view stadium before the start of Mahanarayana Seva.
 


Mean while in Sai Kulwanth Hall, the concluding day of Viswa Shanthi Loka Kalyana Homam started at 6 am. As scheduled at 8 am "Guruvandana" a musical offering by Swami's students started. It was an emotional moment when they sang some very beautiful and memorable songs like Sai Rama Smaranam, Tu Pyar ka sagar hain etc.

After the songs a video recording of Swami's divine discourse was played on the big screens. Swami in that discourse spoke in length on I am I principle and how you should love even your enemies as the I in him and you are one and the same.

Swami concluded that particular discourse with Bhaja Govindam bhajan and the part where He sang Moodha Mathey (Foolish mind) He points out to the head which was very sweet of Him to that.

Later Prema Mudita bhajan was played and the Yagna continued, where in the pandits completed the 3 days yagna with Mahapoornahuthi.
 


The priests later sprinkled the holy water on all the devotees assembled in Sai Kulwanth Hall.

In the Hill view stadium as announced the Maha Narayana seva started at 10am. A minimum of 35000 people would have attended this programme which really gave a festive look to Puttaparthi. All these are poorest of the poor villagers, mostly daily wage labourers. All of them skipped what ever work they were doing and came to Puttaparthi to show their respect and gratitude to Swami and partake His prasadam which is like a multivitamin tablet to face all the challenges of day to day lives.

Puttaparthi temperature which is averaging 40 degrees or so was very serene this morning. There were no one who suffered from dehydration as the temperature was manageable.

Every one were very happy with the arrangements and facilities provided in spite of the huge turn out.

Mr.ADIKESAVULU NAIDU NO MORE:

 



Mean while on a sadder note, long time devotee of Bhagawan, Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu merged with Bhagawan on the same day of Swami's Mahasamadhi day which i guess is a recognition to all that he did for Swami and His mission.

Born in Chittoor in the year 1940, near the temple town Tirupathi, Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu was a very prosperous business man and a politician. Before starting any auspicious work, business etc he used to come to Bhagawan for His blessings. Swami also showered so much love on him on various occasions. Inspired by Swami's medical care, Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu opened his Vydehi hospital right next to Swami's super speciality hospital in Bangalore. He was also instrumental in providing free nursing courses to poor girls from Puttaparthi and surrounding villages who are now serving in Swami's hospitals. He is also providing free medical education to few of Swami's students in his medical college adjoining his hospital.

 

 


In November 2008, he was instrumental for successfully organising the Sahasra Chandra Poorna Darshanam a grand ocassion marking 1000 full moons of Swami's soujourn on this earth. Marking this ocassion, Swami blessed him and his wife along with Mrs Mr.Rathnakar to participate in the puja. It was Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu who co-ordinated with all the religious heads to come to Prasanthi which we all remember as one the most memorable days of Puttaparthi history.
 

 

After the demise of Sai Geetha, it was Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu who gifted little Sathya Gita to Swami so that He doesn't miss Sai Geetha. Very rarely some one is blessed with such rare boons in one life time and it is definitely His Divine Plan to take Sri.Adikesavulu Naidu away from us on Swami's Mahasamadhi day.

In the recent past, when ever ardent devotees like him pass away, I always think, probably Swami is preparing his next team and not to forget, those of us who are still here are very much part of His team and only need to perform much more better than what we are at the moment.

Let us all pray for the already blessed soul to rest in peace...

Praying Swami to guide us and protect us and offering most humble pranams at the divine lotus feet,

R.Satish Naik

SRI RAMA NAVAMI CELEBRATIONS AT PRASANTINILAYAM (19th April 2013)

 



Om Sairam dearest Sai Family

Greetings to one and all on the holy occasion of Sri Rama Navami, the day when Lord Rama descended on this earth in Treta Yuga. It is our great fortune to have experienced the love and blessings of Sai Rama in Kaliyuga.

Marking this holy ocassion, Sai Rama's Abode, Prasanthi Nilayam, was beautifully decorated and as it is also end of academic year in India, many students on a 45 days summer vacation are still here in Prasanthi to take part in the 2nd Mahasamadhi day celebrations and then head to home.

In India one would hardly find a village or a town without a Rama Temple. That is how much people love Rama in this country. If not Rama's temple you would at least find Hanuman's temple.

Many villagers also show keen interest in learning Rama Bhajans which are unique in its rendition. Those were the days when our Lord Sai Rama, used to narrate His own story in a very different style, giving the inner spiritual significance of Rama's story if not just narrating the story of Rama like the priestly class.

Marking this holy occasion Prof.Anil Kumar, whom many devotees call as Lord Sai Rama's Hanuman was given the opportunity to address the gathering.

Speaking mostly in Telugu, the blessed Translator for more than 20 years narrated the beautiful story of Ramayana from Swami's discourses and enthralled the audience.

Just few months ago, i was watching a spiritual TV Channel where one scholar who is also very well versed in Hindu and Christian literature was giving a talk. As i had seen him talk before and being a good speaker, i was listening to him. Suddenly he started narrating the incident of Sita asking for the golden deer and Rama and Lakshmana running after it and the subsequent kidnap of Mother Sita happens.

Taking this incident, this speaker was telling that, this episode is enough proof to show that Sita was a non-vegetarian. I was kind of shocked to hear this. Where is the comparision and relation to brand some one as non-vegetarian.

Quoting the same example from Ramayana, in today's talk, Prof.Anil Kumar repeated Swami's version saying, As long was Sita was with Rama (God) she was very safe. As soon as she started longing (desire) for the deer she was running away from God. The inner significance from this episode is that we shouldn't crave for worldly things when we have God who can give any thing that you can ask for under the sky, seated right next to you.

This small comparison, did reiterate the fact that we all are blessed to have our beloved Lord as our God, Guru and a friend. There is no use of running after any other Gurus who will only confuse us if they can't convince us.
 

In the short 30 minutes given to Prof. Anil Kumar he tried his best to bring some very important anecdotes from Ramayana which infact was very inspiring.

He ended his talk explaining the role played by the dear devotee of Lord Rama, Hanuman. When the meeting was going on as who should be assigned the duty of searching Mother Sita in Lanka, Lord Rama, turned to Hanuman and asked if he is willing to go to Lanka. the immediate answer was YES from Hanuman.

Quite astonished Lord Rama asks Hanuman if he ever had the experience of crossing the ocean because to reach Lanka one had to cross the Indian Ocean. Hanuman replied in negative. When Lord Rama asked him as how he volunteered to go to Lanka, he said when my God Himself has ordered, He will give me that courage, intelligence and strength to finish the mission. Prof.Anil Kumar narrating this episode, reminded all of us to do His work with much more vigour and courage as His blessings are always with us..

Later, an edited video of Swami's divine discourse was played on the big screen after which prasadam was distributed to every one in Sai Kulwanth Hall.

The villagers of Puttaparthi outside the ashram, a beautifully decorated bullock cart, carrying huge photos of Rama was taken in procession as the villagers offered coconuts and arathi to the diety and sang Prasanthi Rama bhajans.

SCHEDULE FOR 2ND MAHASAMADHI DAY

Time just flies and its already two years since Swami left us physically. On the occasion of 2nd Mahasamadhi Day which is termed as Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam, there will be a Yagna for World Peace called as VISWA SHANTHI LOKA KALYANA HOMAM which will be done by a group of priests mostly coming from Tirupathi.

This Yagna which will start on April 22nd 2013 at 6 AM will be done in two sessions on April 22nd and 23rd and on April 24th the Yagna will start at 5am and culminate with Poornahuthi at 8:45am.

At 10 am, a mass Narayana Seva will take place in Sri Sathya Sai Hill view stadium where in sumptuous food will be served to one and all including a saree for women and a dhothi for men.

In the evening programme on April 24th will have a Sarod recital by Pandit Narendra Nath Dhar at 5:20 PM for about one hour.

A similar seva is being planned by Bangalore Rural and Ramanagaram Districts together by performing Maha Narayana Seva (food Distribution) for about 45,000 people were the food will be prepared in a central place and will be taken by different Samithis for distribution

Many friends were asking if they can do a Yagna for Swami marking the second anniversary of Swami's Physical withdrawal. Swami is God and we cannot follow certain rituals that are followed for human beings. The VISWA SHANTHI LOKA KALYANA HOMAM, scheduled in Prasanthi Nilayam, is a prayer to Swami to safe guard Mother Earth and also an occasion to pray to Swami to bless us all.

With prayerful pranams at the Lotus Feet of our beloved Lord, to bless us all with His choicest blessings..

Sai Ram - Samadhi and its Spiritual Vibrations...

 


 

Posted By: Shivakumar Gopal

The Below Article has been forwaded by a Sai Brother many months ago..:

In India, according to Vedic tradition, Samadhi’s are often seen as MORE powerful spiritual portals than when the Mahatma/Avatar was alive.

The reason being is that when They are alive a lot of energy is always being dispersed…..

For example when Swami's Physical Body was alive and walking, eating and talking with people, the strength of His consciousness would fluctuate according to time place and circumstance….its only when He would be alone would He really go off into His own universal supreme consciousness without reserve…….ie His wattage would increase when He was in His own four walls……. if He would be like this while giving darshan, people would probably die at the jolt of lightening being emitted from His body……so many a times Swami would ‘tone Himself down’ according to how much the person in front could handle.

At the point of death, less energy is being dispersed by way of talking, interacting and organs functioning…..so all the energy can be harnessed and focused very sharply on Supreme Universal Consciousness….. therefore at the point of a Mahama’s/Avatar’s death….. their cellular structure gets an almighty blast of consciousness for the very last time with no holds barred…… which is then the very last imprint to remain on the cells of the body.

Science has proved that DNA within the billions and billions of cells within the human body act as receivers and transmitters for the consciousness and other etheric energies…..

The cells in Swami’s body have been exposed to incredibly intense spiritual vibrations over a period of decades which have flipped His cellular structure into another quantum dimension of existence permanently.

Quantum physics shows us that when a subatomic particle is exposed to extremely high frequency of energy for a certain period of time it will flip into a quantum state or another dimensional state. Theoretical physicists now believe there to be at least ten dimensions of reality and have recognised that consciousness is the most powerful force in the known universe.

Consequently the cells in Swami’s dead body are still situated in that almighty quantum state!!…. and have received an extra blast at the point of His departure….. which renders the cells within His ‘dead’ body absolutely perfect transmitters/ receivers……. Each cell in His dead body is a sublime portal from this dimension to the dimension of universal supreme consciousness…. more so now than ever before!!

This is why the body is completely surrounded by several hundred kgs of salt to preserve the cell structure as much as possible…. and not cremated as is normally done in Vedic tradition…… By burying his body it is known that great emanations will still be omitted and purify the earth, its lay lines and also all those who pray earnestly infront of it.

In addition, the Atma of a Mahatma or Avatar…will always stays close to their own Samadhi…..and will use the quantum cells of their ‘dead’ body to receive and transmit powerful divine consciousness without any distraction or interruption…..this is why In India Samadhi’s are seen to be so auspicious…even more so when they were alive in certain departments.

This is why many disciples throughout the ages of India feel to live and do sadhana near the samdhis of such great souls.
