The Youth from Kerala were yet again blessed when they got a golden
opportunity to bask in Bhagawan’s Divine Presence and learn the gems of
wisdom imparted by experienced speakers and the Lord Himself. The
Conference was held for three consecutive days from 19th May to 21st May
2006. On the evening of 21st May 2006, Bhagawan gave His Discourse to the
joy of the Youth and thus fulfilling the prayers of 3000 Kerala Youth who
had converged from different parts of the State at Whitefield, Brindavan –
the abode of Bhagawan at Bangalore.
On the morning of 19th May, Sai Ramesh Krishan Hall was beautifully decked
with fresh floral decorations, traditional lamps and colourful festoons.
Bhagawan came to the Hall at 8.30. After a few Bhajans by the Youth, the
Kerala State President of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, Sri Mukundan
expressed gratitude to Bhagawan for granting permission to hold the
Sadhana Camp for the fourth successive year in the Divine Presence. He
related to the joy of all assembled what Bhagawan had said on 31st March
2006 when the speaker had conveyed to Bhagawan the yearning of all the
Kerala Youth to come to His Presence. Bhagawan said then, “All their
prayers have already reached Me.” Before introducing the speakers for the
morning session, Sri Mukundan requested Bhagawan to release a book
entitled “Helpline on the Sri Sathya Sai Path” containing the answers of
the Warden of Brindavan Campus of the Institute, Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy
to the spiritual questions raised by the Kerala Youth in the previous
youth conferences. Bhagawan blessed the book and also signed on it.
Sri Madhu Balakrishnan, a renowned singer from Kerala earned Bhagawan’s
words of appreciation and delight by his soulful rendering of classical
music and light devotional music. After the music programme, Bhagawan was
offered Arati after which He retired to His abode.
In the evening, Bhagawan came to the Hall at 3.50 p.m. After a short
Bhajan session and Veda chanting, the evening’s proceedings started with
four youth speakers – two gents and two ladies sharing their experiences
with the audience. The talks were short, powerful and well appreciated.
Then the fifth speaker, the State Coordinator for Sri Sathya Sai Medical
Programmes took the dais and engaged the audience for a few minutes. This
was followed by a mellifluous music concert by Sri Madhu Balakrishnan.
This time the singer was blessed with a ring materialised by Bhagawan.
On the morning of 20th May, as Bhagawan entered Sai Ramesh Krishan Hall,
the Kerala Youth started Bhajans. After a few Bhajans, Dr. M.K.
Ramachandran Nair, Vice Chancellor, University of Kerala spoke of his
experiences and also advised the youth about the golden opportunity they
had got at a young age to have Darshan, Sparshan and Sambashan of the
Lord. After the Vice Chancellor’s speech, Sri Hari Hara Subramanian gave a

offered. Then He retired to His abode.

Kerala Youth filled the entire Hall with chanting of Sai Gayatri. Two

illuminating speech, Sri Kavalam Sreekumar and Sri T.S. Radhakrishnan gave

The evening session was a special one for the youth, which will be etched
in their hearts for ever. Bhagawan walked onto the dais at 4 p.m., and as
the Bhajans were in progress, Bhagawan to everyone’s surprise came down
the dais and collected letters from the youth, spoke to some of them and
also materialised Vibhuti to a few of them. The Youth were brimming with
joy and one could see their faces light up in Bhagawan’s Presence.
Bhagawan also went round the Hall giving Darshan to all the devotees. Then
came another special moment for which they had been waiting for the past
two days when Bhagawan gave His nectarous Discourse.
For the benefit of readers, a gist of the Divine Discourse is given below.
Bhagawan said that three days had passed like three minutes for Him and He
was extremely happy to see happiness in their faces.
The human heart is like a plain paper. It attains the quality with which
it is associated. For example, a piece of paper smells of fruits when
fruits are placed on it. On the contrary, when dry fish is placed on it,
it smells of dry fish. So, it is said, Yad Bhavam Tad Bhavati (as is the
feeling, so is the result).
Bhagawan reiterated that one should have good company. He said, Tell Me
your company, I shall tell you what you are. Basically everyone is pure,
but one has to maintain that purity by joining good company and avoiding
Man is not one, but three: The one others think you are, the one you think
you are and the one you really are.
You are God. When someone asks you, “Who are you?” You should answer, “I
am I.” This ‘I’ is changeless. The ‘I’ is present everywhere. There is no
place without the ‘I’. Sarvatah Panipadam Tat Sarvathokshi Siromukham,
Sarvatah Sruthimalloke Sarvamavruthya Tishthati (with hands, feet, eyes,
head, mouth and ears pervading everything, God permeates the entire
One should cultivate love. Do every act with love. Truth is God. Love is
God, live in love. See God in everyone. Even if someone blames you, you
should not get perturbed; you should think that it is for my own good.
For the last three days, the songs that you sang and the activities that
you undertook are very good and are very pleasing to me.
You have waited for this opportunity for one full year and now I have
fulfilled your desire.
You have been thinking that swami has not spoken to you for the last three
days, but Swami is always with you speaking to you.
There is only one relationship between you and Me and that is love. Our
relationship is like mother and child relationship.
Bhagawan at the end blessed the youth to live peacefully and happily. He
said our country Bharat is the Annadata (giver of food) for the entire
world and Kerala is the Annadata for the whole of India.
Bhagawan concluded His Discourse with the Bhajan, "Prema Mudita Manase
Kaho Rama Ram Ram …"
The Conference came to a happy conclusion with the offer of Arati to
