SRI SATHYA SAI ARCHIVE COMPLEX AT PRASANTHI NILAYAM

 


On the 15th of February, 2013, the Bhoomi Pooja for the construction of the 'Sri Sathya Sai Archive' Complex was performed at Prasanthi Nilayam. This Complex will have special vaults to store the valuable manuscripts, photographs and videos of Swami collected through the decades.

All the storage chambers would be scientifically built to store these treasures for centuries to come so that the audio-visual material is preserved for generations to come. This is a special legacy of the Sathya Sai Avatar.

There is also a plan for a separate chamber to keep some of Swami's personal belongings. The building is proposed to come up within the next 2 years and would be inaugurated around the 90th Birthday celebrations of Swami. The building is being constructed next to the SSSIHL Admin block. In the years ahead, on the mountblock, devotees would be able to see 3 buildings - the Sanathana Sanskruthi Museum, the SSSIHL Admin Block and the SSS Archive Complex.

It is said that this plan was blessed by Swami a few months before the Mahasamadhi.

CINEMA SHOOTING IN PUTTAPARTHI FEB 20,21, 2013
 

Pictures of Swami's new movie shooting in Puttaparthi

 

February 20,2013 (Wednesday)

Om Sairam dearest Sai Family

Puttaparthi has been buzzing with so much activity for the past two days thanks to Sri.Anup Jalota (famous Bollywood and Bhajan singer) and his team who are here to film some scenes for the latest movie on Swami titled, "Sri Sathya Sai Baba" in which Sri.Anup Jalota is playing the role of Swami.

 

 



(In this photo Sri.Anup Jalota is seen coming out of Hanuman Temple in Puttaparthi)



( This photo was taken on the banks of Chitravathi River)




( A close up of Sri.Anup Jalota in his car. Really liked his wig)
 

This movie directed by Vicky Ranavath and produced by Sri.Balakrishnan Srivatsav came to Puttaparthi with the entire crew to film some important scenes of the movie for five days.

On the first day of the shooting, some scenes were picturised on Sri.Anup Jalota, in Ganesh gate, Hanuman Temple, Chitravathi river.

So many Puttaparthians rushed to the shooting spot to see Sri.Anup Jalota dressed up like Swami. Even though no one can look or act like Swami in a close up, the wig of Sri.Anup Jalota was nicely done. Being a long time devotee of Bhagawan, I am sure he would have felt stress and ease in equanimity.

Speaking on this occasion, Sri.Anup Jalota said that it was his great fortune that he first had darshan of Bhagawan way back in 1960 along with his father. He said he also had the great fortune to witness the day when the Sarva Dharma stupa was inaugurated in Puttaparthi. He said apart from being a mainstream singer in bollywood, he also acted in 10 films before but this film according to him is his great fortune from the previous births and also a tough one.

For those living in Bangalore please note Shri.Anup Jalota would be having a musical programme in Sai Ramesh Hall, in Swami's Brindavan Ashram, on Sunday, February 24,2013.


FEBRUARY 21, 2013, THURSDAY:

Unlike yesterday, today the crowd were doubled in number. The whole of Ganesh gate area was jampacked. The cameramen, spot boys, light boys, makeup men every one were busy running up and down. For Puttaparthians, the biggest camera that we would have seen so far probably would be those used by the RADIO SAI team and it was first of its kind experience to see huge cameras used in Puttaparthi. For a while, when i took out the cameras, light boys etc from my mind and just saw the crowd lined up on either side of the road, a very blissful joy came from within remembering those golden days of Swami's street darshans where He would slowly pass in His car, blessing us with bonus darshans. But the very next moment the thought came, WHERE HAS SWAMI GONE? He is very much here with us...
 


Today's shooting had few scenes picturised on Bollywood hero Sri.Jackie shroff who apparently was playing the role of a Puttaparthi Police Officer and Ms.Shadi karandaba (hope its spelt right) as his wife. The first shot was of Jackie Shroff and his wife coming out of ashram after darshan.

The next shot shifted to Sai Towers Hotel, where Jacke Shroff dressed up like a police officer arrived in a car. After coming out of his car he goes into the hotel and then comes out to get into his car.

The whole thing was wrapped up in 5 minutes and we all should wait for the film to release to see who this police officer was and what made him go to Sai Towers hotel and come out so quickly!!!!!..

As this film involves so many devotees i am sure they won't spoil it up and hurt the feelings of devotees. It would be a whole hearted attempt to portray the story of the Avatar of this Kali Age.

With the kind of information, access to the literature and state of art infrastructure it would have been nice, if RADIO SAI with the help of students who can act very well, had taken up this movie project instead of individuals from film industry. Of course all is His well.


Lets us all wish this film a grand success.

A NEW GATE OPENED IN SUPER SPECIALITY HOSPITAL:

To the relief of thousands of patients visiting Swami's super specialty hospital, a new improvised entry gate was inaugurated on Feb 21, 2013 (Thursday). All these years, patients visiting the hospital had to stand in the queue right from 2 am on wards for the gate which would open around 6 am. It was a big challenge for those poor patients most of them with heart ailments, to stand in the queue for the whole night, some times in very cold conditions and also in rains waiting for their turn.

From now on there won't be any more waiting. A new registration section separate for Cardiology and Urology was inaugurated this morning in the presence of three Trustees of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Shri.Chakravarthi, Shri.V.Srinivasan and Shri.Rathnakar.

This office would be open from 8 am to 5 pm and any one can walk in and get them selves registered. Every one would be given a bar coded identity card and the time slot for hospital visit would be intimated. The patients can just come on the prescribed time and consult the doctors for further treatment. This is a very well thought idea and a big relief to the patients who now can just walk into the hospital avoiding long queues. This programme was also attended by director of the hospital, Dr.Voleti Chaudary, Dr.Neelam Desai, Former students of Swami working in the hospital and also devotees and patients.

'SATHYA SAI WITH STUDENTS' BLOG UPDATE - WEEK 23

Sai Ram,

The 'Sathya Sai with Students' Blog Team presents before our readers, the articles for Week 23:

1. We continue to study Bhagavan's Discourses on the Divine life, message and mission of Shri Adi Shankara. This week, we present Part 6 of Swami's Discourse on the Life of Adi Shankaracharya.

http://sathyasaiwithstudents.blogspot.in/2013/02/shri-adi-shankarcharya-his-life-message.html

2. Brother C.N. Kshetrajna's article on 'How many friends do you have?'.

http://sathyasaiwithstudents.blogspot.in/2013/02/how-many-friends-do-you-have-by-cn.html

3. In the bygone era, one of the cherished opportunities that Swami would give students was a 'Poornachandra Session', wherein He interacted with students in the Poornachandra Auditorium in a very informal setting. In one such session in November 1998, Swami highlighted the need for His Students to be away from the currently rampant and deadly 'diseases' of hatred and jealousy. We reminisce the second part of the Divine Directions on the theme "For Jealousy, There is No Medicine - Part 2".

http://sathyasaiwithstudents.blogspot.in/2013/02/jealousy-has-no-medicine-part-2.html

4. Prof. Michael Porter (a renowned management expert from the Harvard Business School) in a landmark paper in the Harvard Business Review proposed the concept of 'Shared Value' in January 2011, wherein he highlighted the benefits of integrating societal and institutional goals for long-term success. Over two decades ago, Swami had mentioned to His students the importance of integrating societal welfare into business and personal decisions to be successful as an individual and as an institution. We read the Divine Directions on 'Creating Shared Value'.

http://sathyasaiwithstudents.blogspot.in/2013/02/creating-shared-value.html

5. In this month, world over so many musical presentations were given by vocalists in memory of the great saint Tyagaraja. Over 65 years ago, Swami too gave a musical concert! We reminisce the Divinely Musical Occasion!

6. In the section on the 'Song for the Soul', from this week, we start a series of Sanskrit hymns sung every year by Swami's students extolling the glory of Lord Shiva on the occasion of Mahashivaratri in the Divine Presence in Sai Kulwant Hall. This week we have the Linga Ashtakam - Eight verses dedicated to the glory of the Lingam.
