‪#‎HappyBirthdaySwami‬

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has emerged as a beacon of hope in a world that is desperately seeking an end to the unrest and sorrow prevalent today. His message of “Love All Serve All – Help Ever Hurt Never” is a spiritual salve that will lead mankind from the pain of darkness and ignorance and to the light and bliss of immortality. All who listen to Him, experience His unconditional love, benefit from His caring counsel and witness His supernormal supremacy over mind and matter, get a real glimpse of the glory and majesty of God, and therefore, of the infinity that each human potentially and inherently is.

Swami always wants us to be happy and give happiness to others. He wants to see His children leading a purposeful life by following the path of righteousness and made themselves as an ideal for next generation.

PUTTAPARTH?I GEARS UP TO CELEBRATE THE 89TH BIRTHDAY OF OUR BELOVED LORD

Satish Naik

Om Sairam dearest Sai Family

The holy abode the "Pari poorna Avatar" of this kali age is all set to celebrate the 89th year of the advent. The devotees from all over the world are thronging to the holy Prasanthi, to touch the sanctified soil, to experience Him and to re-charge and energise their spiritual batteries with His divine energy..

Puttaparthi is and will remain the holiest of the places and a " dear" one even for the Gods in Vaikuntha for being an instrument to " accommodate" the " Latest" avatar of this Kali Age who let all of us turn inward failing which the world would have been in great turmoil in multiples to what it is today..

The people of Puttaparthi, for whom Swami is and will remain the dearest are all happy with the way this little hamlet is decorated.. It is like any marriage house which suddenly gets dusted off, cleaned, decorated with flowers, colourful Rangolis and beautiful music played on the background.

The birthday season also means some money to the local business men. One can already see poor men and women selling balloons, imitation floral decors, japmalas on the streets of Puttaparthi hoping to make few rupees. the flower ladies who sell from the pavements have also doubled up their inventory as every one is offering flowers, garlands to the deity of their choice in the ashram.

RATHOTSAVAM STARTS IN PRASANTHI:

As part of the birthday celebrations, as is the tradition, the venugopal Swami chariot which is usually placed in Swami' s old mandir ( now a wedding hall) was brought to the gopuram gate with beautiful floral decorations, amidst veda chants, bhajans and dance.

Speaking on this ocassion, Sri.Rathnakar said that the trust is inclined to broaden the seva activites and during the 89th birthday celebrations, the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust will dedicate the water project worth 80 crores and benefitting 118 villages surrounding Puttaparthi, the new archives building will be ready for inaugaration by April 24th next year.

CHIEF GUESTS FOR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS:

On November 22nd, for the 33 rd convocation of Swami's university, Sri.Kastruri Rangan Indian space scientist who headed the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) from 1994 to 2003 and a Member in the Upper House of the Indian Parliament will be addressing the students of Sri Sathya Sai University.

Shri. Chandra Babu Naidu, a long time devotee and the present chief minister of Andhra Pradesh would be visiting Puttaparthi on November 23rd to seek blessings of Swami and also to formally dedicate this water project to the society.

ELECTRIC BUGGIES FOR THE ELDERLY:
 

The ashram will now have two Electric Buggies for the benefit of elderly devotees living within the ashram. Those devotees who cannot walk to the Sai Kulwanth hall from their respective units, can now travel with comfort in these electric buggies. These buggies will also assist the devotees who come to Prasanthi by bus and have to walk a very long distance to the common dormitories.

This is a welcome gesture by the trust and hopefully more will be added to the fleet in the near future.

PRASANTHI ALL LIT UP FOR BIRTHDAY:

The abode of our beloved Lord, is all lit up with beautiful lightings and floral decorations.

Here are few photos (sourced from various facebook pages)

 

NEW MOVIE OF SWAMI BY SRI.ANUP JALOTA:

Not sure how many remember that there was a movie shooting done in Prasanthi some time back for a movie in which the legendary singer Sri.Anup Jalota is playing the role of Swami.(click this link for photos of the movie shooting that took place in Puttaparthi https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.501912279855350.105059.402496529796926&type=3

Looks like that movie is almost ready and Here is the official trailer of the movie

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfAbayOofWU

The songs sung by Sri.Anup Jalota, Sri.Sumeet Tapoo and others can be heard here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoWcwAFATi4  

This movie will definitely inspire the devotees especially the Hindi speaking states of India where Shirdi Baba's followers are in big numbers.

SWACH BHARATH (CLEAN INDIA)CAMPAIGN IN PRASANTHI

By the clarion call given by the Prime Minister of India Sri.Narendra Modi, the Clean India campaign had a fantastic start in Puttaparthi and it was a welcome move by the authorities to start the campaign by cleaning up the Chitravathi river belt which has been neglected over the years.

Speaking on this ocassion, the local minister Mr.Raghunath Reddy said his government is keen on developing Puttaparthi and they will be giving cleanliness the first priority. The government also sanctioned about 5 crore rupees for the beautification of the Chitravathi river bed where there is a proposal to built a nice Arathi place (for your information, every thursday around 7 PM there is Chitravathi arathi done by locals and is open for all), there is also a proposal to come up with green lawns, kids play area etc .

Sri.Rathnakar, Trustee of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust also participated in this programme. Addressing the crowd he said, millions of devotees from all over the world come to Prasanthi to clean up their minds and hearts which is filled with worries, jealosy, hatred and ego and it is time for all of us keep Prasanthi clean and tidy. He assured of extending every possible support from the ashram to keep Prasanthi clean.

CAPTURING DIVINITY

Yay! A beautiful and holy Thursday indeed!!! Starts off with a dream in which Swami grants me padanamaskar and seems happy. I am so happy... and then, I see His gift.

"Capturing Divinity" is released today. A sequel to the "Memoirs of a Sai Student", it captures the love and grace Swami showered as I transitioned from being His student in the University to being His student at Radio Sai.

"The book opens with the detailed story of how Swami granted me a job, a career and life at Radio Sai Global Harmony. Then, I try to compact my adventures and misadventures through 18 more chapters before concluding with 2 chapters on what we term as "Mahasamadhi" and how Swami can still be easily accessed by one and all..."

As of now, only the paperback has been released and can be bought from the Sathya Sai B...ookstore. You can also write to orders@sssbpt.org to order your copies...

How can we beautify ourselves and use the same method to attain liberation. Bhagawan explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Thursday, November 20, 2014

Do not find faults with others. If you point an accusing fi...nger at someone, remember three fingers are pointing to you. Wear the ornament of Truth to adorn your neck (Sathyam Kantasya Bhushanam). Charity is the true ornament that make your hands beautiful and elegant (Hasthasya Bhushanam Dhanam). Thus you must sanctify each limb of your body by engaging in sacred activities. Your eyes should look at only sacred things. Do you know what an enormous power is latent in your eyes? There are crores of light rays in them. In olden days, people used to invoke the grace of Sun God to have a better vision. When you perform Surya-namaskar (worship of Sun God) and invoke His grace, the light rays in your eyes will become more effulgent and inspire you. People aspire to attain liberation. What is liberation? Help ever, hurt never - that is true liberation. To get rid of attachment (moha) is true liberation (moksha).

- Divine Discourse, Nov 19, 2002.

When your tooth bites your tongue do you get angry at them and break the teeth that hurt your tongue? No! For, teeth and tongue are both yours! Similarly the one who hurts you and you, are both limbs of the same body, that is God.

"Thursday Divine Darshan"
Short darshan Video Clip every Thursday

Darshan - 20

When the compassionate Lord chose to move amidst us... even as He glided past us and before us, He silently slipped into our hearts too! The eyes that were intoxicated with the beauty of His Darshan and never satiated, unknowingly then, turned within in search of that divine glimpse. Isn't that how He purified us, isn't that how He made us seekers? That was the magic of our Sai's Darshan!

Looking at Swami we wondered, was He more gracious or more graceful... nay He is verily grace itself - when He walks, when He talks, when He scolds, or when he gathers His robe's folds, when he smiles and beckons or in disappointment frowns... Seeing His grace our hearts gaped, 'How could one be so very graceful?' He could be, because He was as gracious as He was graceful, and to shower His grace was the very purpose of His presence. Darshan was that special moment when He allowed us to witness His gracefulness and graciousness.

Radiosai H2H Special: WOMEN MUST LEAD WITH THEIR IDEALS

When explaining the problems we face in everyday lives, Bhagawan would often tell us that we tend to give more importance than it is due to certain aspects of life, and ignore or demean those that are significant. This imbalance is what causes discord. Similarly in society too, a lot of the disharmony and chaos we notice can be attributed to the disregard we show to womanhood. The disrespect shown to women can no more be spoken of as a problem to be dealt with by that gender alone; it is a social issue that needs to be addressed by men and women, young and old. Unless and until we learn to respect womanhood, which is the very source of life itself, how can we respect and love our other fellow beings?

Even as we as a society tend to give more importance to wealth and power, the women too have been forced to re-order their priorities. This too has led to a gradual drift from what Swami would refer to as Sthree Dharma or the primary nature and role of a woman. It is to reinstate the importance of womanhood, to remind all to respect and revere the feminine aspect and to guide women along the right path Bhagawan instituted the observance of Ladies Day, every year on 19 November.

We are pleased to present before you few golden words of counsel from a Divine Discourse delivered during the Ladies day of the year 1995.

What are the primary duties of a woman? How does it help one in the path of liberation? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Women should look after their homes diligently and conduct themselves in a pleasing manner. Treat your guests in a cordial manner and to the extent possible. Empathise with those who are in diff...iculties, comfort and console them with soothing words. Those who talk harsh words are verily demons. If you hurt others’ feelings, you will be hurt twice as much and you cannot escape from the consequences of your actions. Embodiments of Love! These teachings are simple to practice in your daily life. But do not take them lightly - they can confer on you liberation! It is your good fortune (adrishtam) to know them! What is good fortune? A-drishtam is that which cannot be seen. You may not be able to see the results of your noble conduct and meritorious deeds, but they will confer on you all happiness and comforts in due course of time.

- Divine Discourse, Nov 19 2002.

The well-being of women is an index of the welfare of nations. -BABA.

Ladies Day Celebrations - Morning Programme - 19 Nov 2014


At times or in some circumstances, some people feel that God appears to have forsaken them. Is that ever true? Bhagawan lovingly explains and encourages us to be near and dear to Him at all times.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Tuesday, November 18, 2014

People today speak about God having forgotten them. This is not true. Most often, it is the devotee who gives up God. It is the devotee who forgets Him. It is their own feelings that are reflected in their utterances. People forget God and indulge in the world and one day they suddenly declare that God has forgotten and forsaken them. Separation from God is the primary cause for people wallowing in sensuous pleasures. Mind is the cause of one’s pleasure and pain. It must be directed towards God to secure freedom from pleasure and pain. You stray away from God and think God is moving away from you. God can and will never forget His devotee. God is never away from you. He is always with you, caring for you and waiting for you to turn to Him.

- My Dear Students, Vol 5, Ch 14, 14 Jan 1996.

God is always with you, for you, above you, below you, behind you and above you – guiding and guarding you at all times. - BABA

What according to Bhagawan is as important as worldly education and skill? Bhagawan Himself lovingly explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi N...ilayam, Monday, November 17, 2014

There are many Nobel laureates. How many remember them? But the great benefactors of mankind, the men of noble qualities, are cherished by all mankind. For instance, Kolkata produced many great intellectuals, who after a time are not remembered at all. But Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, a noble soul from that city, even though he was illiterate, is enshrined in the hearts of millions all over the world. Is education responsible for it? Likewise if many noble persons are instilled in the hearts of people, what is the reason? They have earned their good name by their faith in God, their character, magnanimity and spirit of sacrifice. This means that together with concern for worldly things, there should be devotion to God as well. Together with education Samskara is essential. What is the meaning of culture (Samskara)? Refinement of action is true culture - Samyak Kriti Iti Samskara.

2 NEW "SEVAKS" @ PRASANTHI NILAYAM

Facilitating pilgrims to commute at ease two Electric Buggies have been pressed into service here in Prasanthi Nilayam this ...morning. Electric Buggies are battery operated vehicles, used in-campus, for transporting people and carrying luggage.

In a mini function held at the Ganesha Mandir precincts this morning, in presence of senior Ashram administrators and hundreds of devotees, coconuts were broken and Mangala Arathi was offered before the maiden service was offered to devotees.

With Bhagawan's 89th Birthday celebrations round the corner, this added facility would come handy, serving aged and infirm ones. Named 'Sevak', these Buggies can accomodate around 10 people and also have ample luggage space. A lovely way to wish our dear Swami, ‪#‎HappyBirthdaySwami‬!

The Sevaks will be in service everyday from 6:30am to 11:00am and 3:00pm to 8:00pm. They will run between the Ganesh gate and the farthest Shed in the Ashram, the Bhakta Nivas continously.

Priority will be given for senior citizens, physically challenged and heavy luggage.

89 YEARS OF UNIVERSAL LOVE

A Radiosai Exclusive facebook timeline cover to Celebrate the grand 89th Birthday Celebration of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

5 mor...e days left for the grand celebration of Swami’s 89th Birthday Celebration. On 23rd of November, we celebrate the Birth Anniversary of the Advent of our Lord Sai amongst us. It is an opportunity for mankind to pay homage to this embodiment of Selfless Love on this special day when He took this Sathya Sai Avatar for the sake of mankind. Millions of devotees from all over the world throng to Prasanthi Nilayam on this day to catch a glimpse of this grand celebration and to feel Swami’s divine essence.

This is not only a celebration but it is an event for which devotees wait a whole year. They come and fulfilled their wish by taking part in this divine event. Swami always has said that the day when divinity will blossoms in our heart, that will be His birthday. Swami will be happy if we could follow His teaching and make our life His message. That will be a true offering to Swami on His birthday.

To a spiritual aspirant, He is the divine master par excellence; to a rationalist, He is the greatest humanitarian on Earth; to thousands of modern youth, He is the leader with a dynamic vision and a colossus of inspiration; to a devotee, He is simply divinity in human form; and to everyone who has had the opportunity to behold Him, He is Pure Love Walking on Two Feet.

Ask Bhagawan Baba, “Are you God?” And He says: “Yes, I am God and so are you. The only difference between you and I is that while I am aware of this fact, you are not.” And this is no casual remark. Indeed, inherent in this small, but extremely significant statement, is the fundamental truth of humanity’s divine nature - its true reality; and revivifying the heart of every human being to this salient truth is the mission and message of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Very aptly, Baba begins His every discourse, addressing the gathering as, “Embodiments of the Divine Atma”.

All who listen to Him, experience His unconditional love, benefit from His caring counsel and witness His supernormal supremacy over mind and matter, get a real glimpse of the glory and majesty of God, and therefore, of the infinity that each human potentially and inherently is.

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has emerged as a beacon of hope in a world that is desperately seeking an end to the unrest and sorrow prevalent today. His message of “Love All Serve All – Help Ever Hurt Never” is a spiritual salve that will lead mankind from the pain of darkness and ignorance and to the light and bliss of immortality.

Swami always wants us to be happy and give happiness to others. He wants to see His children leading a purposeful life by following the path of righteousness and made themselves as an ideal for next generation.

Feel free to make it your facebook timeline cover and share it among all to celebrate this grand event. Let us make His birthday meaningful with our dedicated and devotional service.

We are pleased to inform you the special Hashtag of this holy month of November: ‪#‎HappyBirthdaySwami‬. For one day and one day only – we invite you to post your greetings (both pictures and videos) on social media and dedicate them to our divine master for His birthday using #HappyBirthdaySwami.

Mark your calendars for November 23rd as the day we offer Swami our prayers and add this special hashtag #happyBirthdaySwami to our posts...Let’s create a huge Sai movement on this grand day.

Let us pray to the Lord of the Universe, our dearest Bhagawan Baba to shower His choicest blessings upon all. Let us make His 89th Birthday grand with our heartfelt offerings at Thy Divine Lotus Feet. Feel His Universal love every moment and make them memorable to cherish them forever and ever.

Thank you and Loving Sai Ram,
Team Radio Sai
