October 2, 2006 

Today was Vijaya Dashmi, which marks the end of the nine day festival of Navratri and the completion of the Veda Purusha Sapta Gnaan Yagnam. The Sai Kulwant Hall was echoing with holy Vedam chants and the Nadaswaram music. Swami came out from His divine abode at 8.50am for darshan. As Swami's car approached the centre of the Sai Kulwant Hall, Sai Geeta was also waiting there to get a glimpse of her Lord. Sai Geeta was adorned beautifully for this special occasion. Upon blessing her from the car, Swami's car headed towards the veranda. To the delight of all those present in Sai Kulwant Hall, Swami allowed the students to take him back to Sai Geeta in His chair! What followed was extraordinary…Sai Geeta washed Swami's divine Lotus Feet three times by taking water in her trunk and showering Swami's feet. What wonderful grace she received today. Swami then made his way to the Poornachandra Hall to perform the `Purnahuti' ritual (closing ceremony of the Veda Purusha Sapta Gnaan Yagnam). It was truly a feast for the eyes to watch our beloved Lord of Lords offer water and rice into the yagnam. Imagine…here is a situation where Swami is both the Giver and the Receiver! Swami was taken to the Nataraja idol in the hall where aarti was performed. Swami personally blessed the priests who conducted the yagnam by sprinkling water on them all. The priests then began to bless all those present in the Poornachandra Hall with this water as well. Swami returned to His divine abode, whilst prashadam was distributed to one and all by Swami's army of students.

Afternoon Darshan:

Swami came into the Sai Kulwant Hall just after 4.00pm. Being a National holiday, the Sai Kulwant Hall was full to the brim as devotees had arrived from all over India to witness the celebration of Vijiya Dashmi. As Swami gave darshan, the brilliance on His face shone like a housand suns and His benevolence and compassion could be felt by one and all. To the great fortune of the Gram Seva Truck Drivers and local Police, Swami slowed down the car to give them superb darshan. Fortunately, the UK Grama Seva boys were sitting next to this group, so they also benefited from this wonderful darshan.

Swami then instructed Sri Hanumanthapa to address the gathering and speak about his personal experiences. During the talk, Swami offered water to the speaker to clear his throat on several occasions…what immense compassion! Whilst the talk continued, Swami called a number of his students, spoke with each individually and even materialised gifts for a few of them. The talk ended at 5,45pm, which was followed by beautiful energetic bhajans. Swami took Aarti
and left for His divine abode at 6.15pm. submitted: to SBOI-Group by Sai Kingdom (UK) Grama Seva Group 2006 – 2nd October 2006
