Swami also spoke to various people
on the Veranda whilst blessing the prasadam, which was to be distributed
immediately afterwards. The Vedam boys received instructions from Swami to
commence the walk to the Yagna in the Poornachandra Hall in the usual
manner, by encircling the Mandir. O Dear Sai stood in the middle whilst all
the students and the UK Grama Seva boys also walked around the mandir.
Within few minutes Swami stopped the
Vedam chanting in order for Sri Anil Kumar to announce the speakers for the
Swami immediately answered his prayers by standing up to begin His discourse. The Sai Kulwant Hall was filled with a thunderous applause.
Swami spoke in detail about
Education and Intellect. At one point, Swami mentioned the importance of
Purity and that He himself does not consume polluted water, food or air. In
fact, Swami made a very beautiful statement. The air that Swami breathes is
a reflection of the prayers of all His devotees. He continued by saying
Swami has no problems. Not even in dreams. He is full of joy. However, He
feels bad only when His devotees are waiting for darshan. Swami said Be
happy as Happiness is union with GOD.

Thereafter, Swami gave instructions
to commence the Grama Seva. This in itself is a huge task, undertaken solely
by Swami's students. This year was no exception. The sisters from Anantapur
Campus had began preparing the food consisting of Pulihora Rice and Ladoo,
at 10:00pm the night before and this continued until the early hours of the
morning. This will be routine until Gram Seva finishes. This year 700
hundred students will be taking part in the distribution of the sarees,
dhotis and food packets.

Om sairam to the Sai Family,
Hope this email finds all of you in good health and happiness by the grace of our beloved Lord. The Dasara celebrations are in full swing combined with the Grama Seva by Swamy's students. The Grama Seva started Yesterday 26th September after the Divine darshan and guidance. About 50 trucks (407s as we call in India) were readied and all the trucks were connected with a wireless radio set with a control room in the ashram to monitor the happenings and of course, Swamy taking keen interest and concern for minutest things for this stupendous DOOR DELIVERY seva which is unique and only ONE of its kind any where in the world.
Yesterday, morning the seva started with students going to the streets of Puttaparthi town. There was bit confusion especially in Chitravathi road,as people were rushing towards the trucks stretching their hands less for food, more for sarees.
In the afternoon of 26th September Swamy drove towards the new indoor stadium construction site to monitor the developments. The 120 days project is shaping pretty well and there are 40 days more to finish the stadium which is estimated to cost 11 crores rupees which will have tennis court, shettle, badminton, basket ball and also running tracks with a seating capacity of 5000 people. There are also reports that the first match will be played by the Indian tennis starts, Mahesh Bhupathi, Leandor Paes and not to forget the teen sensation Sania Mirza.
On the way to ashram, 100s of devotees were waiting along the road side to see Swamy as there is a good chance for all of us to see Swamy when He comes outside. He seemed to be very expressive and was looking towards His left side more. I ran with His car from the stadium site till Ganesh Gate a 2 km distance, having a great darshan and few eye-to-eye contacts and one Abhaya Hasta.
Swamy's car was now near the Planetarium and our Sai Geetha who now-a-days is living in a temporary house behind Planetarium came on the road and when she saw Swamy, ran up to the car and the car almost came to an halt as she said NO for the car to move forward. If the driver's window was open, she would have snatched the ignition key with her long trunk. Swamy who was sitting on the far side, had to pacify her and let the car move forward.. As all this was going on, we devotees had a great chance to witness this DIVINE ROMANCE. which we have seen many times during darshans but its very special when you witness this from so close.
As the car moved forward, the devotees started their jogging. There was one more boy running with me and he seemed more desperate than me and with a letter. The security boys were equally desperate to avoid him from getting closer to Swamy's car but he didn't give up. There were tears in his eyes and any one seeing him would just melt like ice and our compassionate Swamy is no exception. I too prayed Swamy to answer his request and atlast the boy was noticed by Swamy as the car approached the arch just before the general hospital and exactly before the general hospital gate, Swamy signaled the driver to stop the car and as the window glass rolled down, the boy with tears and loud cry handed over the letter to Swamy. There were tears in every one's eyes, how comapassionate you are Swamy!!!!.. NO SEASON FOR LOVE. NO REASON FOR LOVE. NO PARTICULAR PLACE FOR SHOWERING YOUR LOVE.. All these days we thought we can hand over the letter only in darshan halls but Swamy always has His bag of suprises, and this is one of them. That's why you are loved by millions Swamy.
This morning (27th September) Swamy's van with goodies came to my village (brahmanapalli thanda), (the photos will be posted later).

In the afternoon, Swamy came to Kulwanth hall around 4pm as thousands were gathered. Swamy made a full round towards the gents side and later Swamy walked to the interview as He was helped by two boys.
At around 4:30 Swamy came back on the dias and asked Mr. Giri, the former vice chancellor of Swamy's university to address the audience and it was 5pm by the time he finished his talk and just as we thought, the bhajans will commence, Swamy signals the boys to bring His discourse table. Another Surprise!!!!!! Sweet surprise and there were no words to express our happiness.. Swamy slowly raised from His chair as the two boys hold His BODY.. Swamy adjusts the two tiny mikes. Adjusts His voice and the world's sweetest voice with much more sweeter smile is heard.
Swamy's discourse was mainly based on giving up bodily attraction and realizing the Atma. Swamy said, we should not have a narrow mind. We should have a broad mind. We should not have a physical heart, which needs a surgery one day or other.. have a heart full of love then only you will be true a human being.
Students, don't waste time.. time is precious and sacred. Make use of time and experience the happiness. Human being is full of bliss. Remain happy always. Never be indifferent to others. Happiness is union with God. Always KEEP SMILING.. In any circumstances don't stop smiling. Even during your exams.
I am always smiling and happy. The more enthusiastic you are the inner divinity will manifest. For all the things happiness is very important.. why do you worry. Its God who takes care of you.. If you study well, you will be successful. Work for the upliftment of your country. Dasara festival is celebrated to fill happiness amongst you.
You are NARA. (human) understand your true qualities.. have good company, and you will have detatachment and ultimately you will have mukti. Be in good company. Say good bye to bad company. Be happy always. Always say Namaskar to every one. Its not a mistake to do namaskar. Do namaskar even to your enemy. Say how are you Brother. Then he will also say, How are you brother. Never run away from your enemy if you come across him. Where there is love, there is peace. Once there is peace there is Dharma. Then comes truth. Truth is one not two. Speak truth. Follow dharma and remain in Peace. Love is God, God is love, Live in Love.
Jai Sai Ram
