A. V. Gokak welcomed Bhagawan and introduced the speaker of the morning,
Sri Rangarajan of the School of Business Management, Accounting and
Finance. After his short speech where he elaborated on the Sai
University's unique fortune, the VC prayed for Bhagawan's Divine Discourse. Bhagawan began His Divine Message at 9.15 am on
the theme of Educare. He noted that Educare deals with the eternal values
of Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non-violence, while worldly
education is associated with the six evil traits Desire, Anger, Greed,
Infatuation, Pride and Jealousy. He exorted the students never to forget
the knowledge of the Self while excelling in worldly pursuits. Bhagawan stood and spoke for nearly an hour, and
then continued after sitting down. He recollected how Sai Geeta had
come to Him as a 10-day old baby and how He had fed her
with His own hands. The bond of Love between the Lord and His elephant, "Vatsalya" as Swami said, touched everyone. Bhagawan concluded by saying that she would be reborn soon and would come to Him again.
