April 26, 2007 - Om Sairam to dearest Sai Family
Amidst cheers, prayers and tears, Swami left for Kodai Kanal this morning
as thousands gathered on either side of the road, to greet a warm farewell
to the Dearest Son of this holy Puttaparthi…
Swami had already prolonged His stay for about 15 days and all of us were
expecting Swami would go to Kodai any time..
There was news running around that Swami might leave this morning (26 th
April) and governement owned Indian airlines flight landed in the Sathya
Sai Airport around 8:30am confirming Swami’s departure from Puttaparthi.
The selected Students, teachers and other dignitaries were already
assembled in the Airport… There was a separate lift placed for Swami to
get into the plane and in no time Swami’s flight took off,around 10:30am,
as thousands waved from the ground…
Puttaparthi, was fortunate to have Swami a bit longer than He used to ….
Courtesy of the marriage and some other functions…Devotees thronged in
large numbers, ignoring the scorching sun….
Puttaparthi will now wear a deserted look, SANNATA as they call in hindi..
All the big overseas groups, South Africans, Americans, Russians, all will
be gone.. It will be a quite time for other wise busy Puttaparthi…
All the deserving and desiring beggars will be gone (many of them have
already worked overtime as Swami prolonged His visit..)… and for all the
flower vendors, rickshaw drivers it will be a tough time.
The past 12 months… witnessed a NEW Swami, a big revolution in all our
lives.. Two big events that occurred were the two Yagnas in Parthi and
Chennai.. We got to witness about 20 discourses in this 12 months.. there
is also a sea change in our Sai Family.. Love is blossoming, hatred is
declining… jealousy is running away from us… yet we all know there is a
long way to go and our Swami will definitely make sure that we reach our
With prayers to our beloved Sai Ma to help us lead a more spiritually
fruitful life I end this small offering at the lotus feet…….
