A WEEK WHEN HISTORY WAS MADE
Imagine industry captains from the financial world ‘descending’ to Prasanthi Nilayam
to deliberate ethics and morality in the world of finance. …And sitting at His Lotus
Feet they deliberate on supposed reforms that would save the world from the disaster
it encountered; and they vie for singing praise of Bhagawan’s University and
students. The week had elements of such amazing developments that became history in
the history of Prasanthi Nilayam.
The Mission statement that He proclaimed long ago, Bhagawan had in no uncertain
terms announced about His vow: He said, I have a vow: To lead all who stray away
from the straight path again into goodness and save them. At a time when the world
economy is under stress, crumbled down to lower depths, when ethics, lofty ideals
and righteous principles were beaten to take a backstage to man’s ever unsatiated
greed, the week that passed had something quite interesting reflecting Bhagawan’s
vow in His mission statement.
The week’s highlight was essentially a high profile conference aimed at bringing
ethical values in the world of finance. Sri Sathya Sai University, in its relentless
pursuit to bring quality in the world of business management had organized a two-day
conference on “Ethics and World of Finance” attended by scores of Industry captains
from Banking and Financial Sector. The Conference that was inaugurated officially by
Bhagawan, who is incidentally the Chancellor of the University, was attended by the
Governor of Reserve Bank of India, Dr. Duvvuri Subba Rao and the former Governor,
Mr. Y.Venugopal Reddy along with scores of senior bankers from the country.
Delivering the keynote address at the inaugural function, Mr. Subba Rao said:
“Because of the very nature of the financial sector, leaders and the top management
in the sector have an extra obligation to be sensitive to larger societal
obligations. Economics, as an academic discipline, is losing its value base, and
conjectured, if that could be at the root of the malaise in the financial sector.”
In his in-depth analysis of the present economic recession and the role of ethics,
the RBI Governor outlined how a sense of responsibility to larger societal good
underpins on the mandate of the RBI. “All of us as individuals, families, social
communities and faith communities confront ethical dilemmas everyday, and we resolve
them in our own ways. We take the value of ethical behaviour to be axiomatic,” he
“Banks and financial institutions have a greater responsibility of being conscious
of the obligation they have of not jeopardizing the larger public interest,” added
the Governor divulging in detail about the Banking sector’s responsibility towards
the public interest in general.
Concluding his speech the Governor listed out the ethical dimensions of Reserve Bank
of India, listing the bank’s roles and responsibilities being the guardians of
nation’s financial security.
The high-profile guest of honour’s subject oriented lecture spreading across the
essentials of financial fabric, intertwined with illustrations and examples was a
treatise of relishing treat for the audience especially for the students from the
The former Governor of Reserve Bank of India, Mr. Y.Venugopal Reddy delivered the
invited lecture. Prof. Vishwanath Pandit, current Vice-chancellor and Mr. S.V.Giri,
the 6th Vice-Chancellor of the University also addressed the intellectual gathering.
While the panel sessions and deliberations continued at the Institute, the 28th
evening witnessed an extension of the ongoing conference in the Sai Kulwant Hall. In
a function officiated by Bhagawan Himself, and attended by over 24 top brasses from
the Banking and Financial Sector, selected luminaries spoke of their perception
about a whole gamut of issues ranging from business to ethics to spirituality.
Then came the valedictory on the 29th evening, when Bhagawan delivered a Divine
Discourse wherein many a maxim, that Bhagawan quotes quite often, come to the fore
imparting words of wisdom. Ensuring Divine Grace anywhere and everywhere, asking
students and devotees to develop intense love for God, Bhagawan cautioned them to
stay away from sins as sins once committed would rebound. Quoting once again His oft
repeated maxim, Love for God, Fear of Sin and Morality in Society, highlighting the
same to be the underpinning of the moral and righteous social fabric, Bhagawan
exhorted the students to engage in good activities in the larger societal benefit.
Earlier the week began with a Burrakatha presentation by the trio, from the
University, who had been onstage several times during the year. It was His story in
His presence, the epic Ramaya in a nutshell, narrated in the Divine Presence, a
session meant for the devotees to understand the greater significance behind the
glory of the story of the Lord, Sri Rama!
Then came the immersion ceremony. Quite distinct from the world outside, typical of
the Prasanthi culture, where everything happens as per His loving command, scores of
Ganeshas were mounted on chariots to send in procession before immersing the
Chitravathi River stretch, bypass Enumanapalli, within two days of the Ganesh
Chatuthi festival. It was an apt example of greater harmony and unity, where
students joining hands making the festivity a grand success, showing up their
greater talent for their beloved Bhagawan. If paid attention to the background
details of enormity of such a festivity, one would understand the intensity of
devotion and sacrifice the students community puts in, all with one intention, to
make their Master happy.
…And this was very much reflected in Bhagawan. In an ‘unscheduled’ Divine Discourse
delivered the next day, that turned out to become the Ganesh Chaturthi Divine
Discourse, by virtue of the content and the tone and tenor He used, Bhagawan
lavishly praised the boys for their greater unity in making the occasion a grand
success. The discourse was a treatise on the Vinayaka Principle, divulging deep into
the esoteric wisdom that the elephant-headed God stood for.
Seven hundred odd Youth from the state of Orissa, come on a Parthi Yathra, had
something firm to affirm. In a Dance Drama, entitled “Kingdom of God, Here and Now”
staged on the auspicious Thursday evening, a beautiful portrayal of a real life
story, the youth reaffirmed their love and devotion to Bhagawan, depicting how
greater faith and dedication win His Divine Grace, achieving the seemingly
impossible. It was the story the coming into being of an orphanage, all by His
grace, in the process crumbling various roadblocks.
Devotees from the “God’s Own Country”, Kerala are already started getting off to the
“Valley of Peace”, Prasanthi Nilayam to celebrate their national festival, Onam
scheduled for the coming week, and Prasanthi would continue with her festive
The week’s rose beneficiaries were Mr. Ramalingam, Mr. Rangaswami, Mr. Sambhashiva
Rao, Mr. Padmanabhan, Mr. Rajendran, all with the maintenance section, Mr. Kulkarni
with the Publications Relations Office and Mr. Madhu Puri from the Mandir.
From the Burra Katha to the Orissa Dance Drama, from the Vinayaka Chaturthi Divine
Discourse to the Valedictory Divine Discourse on the Conference held, from the
Ganesha Immersion to the High-Profile Conference, the whole week was suffused with
greater ideals, higher principles, pristine love for God, who is One and One only.
…And what lingers in one’s mind is undoubtedly the big conference in the name of
ethics in financial world. Is it history being made in Prasanthi Nilayam?, wherein
Industry captains spoke of ethics and moral in the world of finance, in the process
submitting themselves at His Feet. When the world is watching Prasanthi for forms
and reforms, this conference could be taken as a landmark achievement towards a
righteous, moral world established in Sanathana Dharma.
Yet another week fades away, not before presenting one of the most auspicious
festivities in the Hindu almanac. The week bows out worshipping the Lord who is
hailed as the Lord without an OverLord, the Lord who is worshipped as the primary
deity praying for the removal of all obstacles, Lord Ganesha. The auspicious sunday,
the festive evening, was marked with special Ganesha Strotrams sung in the Divine
Presence followed by a scintillating Carnatic vocal that was cherished and
appreciated by one and all including Bhagawan Himself! And the Lord was gorgeous in
“His strides”, moving along the assembly of devotees, with adorable beatific
countenance, blessing one and all including the chunk of “spontaneity and
innocence”, the tiny tots from the Primary School.
Earlier during the week, after quite a waiting with extensive rehearsal sessions,
the youth from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, numbering over 2150, got their
opening with a dance drama entitled, “Manasa Bhajare Gurucharanam”. Coming afresh
from the glory of previous year’s rich experience, that brought them blessings in
abundance, the youth lit up the evening turned twilight with the message that could
be termed apt for the modern man who is reeling under the vagaries of the monkey
mind. The message was clear that only by controlling the mind and surrendering it at
the Guru’s Feet that one could attain self-realisation.
The week also witnessed “God’s Own Folk” turning up en mass, numbering over four
thousand, from Anantapur. Rewarding the greatest boon bestowed upon this terrain in
Rayalaseema region, by virtue of hosting the Divine Abode - Prasanthi Nilayam,
Bhagawan had declared long ago that He would make Anantapur into Anantapuram.
This group of over four thousand was brought under the auspices of the Sri Sathya
Sai Seva Organisations, Anantapur in a “Parthi Yatra” to relish the beauty of the
God in human frame living “next door”. In a rain drenched friday evening 173
selected forlorn from the district were given essential implements in the Divine
Presence that would help them to eke out a living. This was followed by an influx of
Divine messages, aptly displayed through a presentation entitled “Dharmodharaka Sri
Sathya Sai” going back in time, bringing anecdotes from the lore of yore.
21st August being the 23rd anniversary of The School of Business Management and
Finance, Sri Sathya Sai University, Bhagawan released the revised edition of the
popular book, “Man Management”, a management book for commoners based on His Divine
Teachings. Blessing the occasion, Bhagawan most magnanimously browsed through some
of the pages to the delight of Prof. U.S. Rao, the Dean of the Department, Prof.
Kumar Bhaskar, the editor and compiler of the book and other colleagues including
research scholars, who had put in unstinted effort in releasing the revised edition.
The book contains Divine Discourses on the theme, Management, delivered on various
occasions, especially during the anniversary celebrations over the years.
On the 21st evening, in response to the prayers of Mr. Srinivasan Chettiar of Sathya
Sai Padhuga Trust, Madurai, a Sphatika Lingam, brought from Nepal and made out of 98
percentage crystal, which would be installed in the sanctum sanctorum at the
Meenakshi Sundareshwara Sawmi Temple, Madurai was blessed by Bhagawan along with an
Ashta Dik Palaka Padhuga. This Padhuga symbolically signifying the eight gods ruling
eight directions would be taken out to different places for worship aiming at
universal peace, said Mr. Srinivasan Chettiar.
The week did not have much of “group movement” except for three small groups, a tiny
group from Germany which has been camping and doing rehearsal sessions over the
week, and another sixty member group of students from Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar,
Baripada, Orissa and a two hundred member group from Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samiti,
Tirupur. Women students from the Anantapur Campus had also been to Prasanthi to
attend the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.
Earlier Ganeshas representing different batches from the University were brought to
Yajur Mandiram for Divine Blessings on the penultimate evening, 22nd August.
The week’s Rose Beneficiaries were, Mr. Unni, in-charge, Accomodation, Mr. Suresh B.
Koppikar working with Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Mr. Vinod Kumar Passi,
in-charge, Finance and Accounts, Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Col. (Retd.) Bose,
caretaker, Chaitanya Jyothi Museum, Mr. Dixit, Civil Engineer with Maintenance Dept
as well working as Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kashi Viswanathan with Eternal
Heritage Museum and Mr. Tejo Murthy with Shanti Bhavan Guest House.
The week fades away, leaving the splendor as Ganesha is onstage, being worshipped
all over in Prasanthi Nilayam, as every single section would be having a Ganesha of
its own to worship, a Prasanthi tradition that has been on for quite long time. The
expectant week would be witnessing Ganeshas mounting the chariot for the much
popular immersion ceremony. The OverLord in Prasanthi Nilayam is expected to
officiate the function when Ganesha’s would be taken out in procession for immersion
and thus the week that follows evinces greater interest.
A WEEK OF MANY HUES…
Posted at 23:59 Hrs. 17th Aug 2009
The falling week with sizeable public holidays in its kitty resembled an important
festive occasion as the swelling surge of devotees made every available space in the
ashram a scarcity. With a huge group of three thousand and five hundred from
Srikakulam arrived on a Parthi Yatra for three days, the Youth from Gujarat still
camping in Prasanthi, the week that began had sizeable rush that continued till the
‘falling week’ that had three consecutive holidays, owing to Sri Krishna
Janmashtami, National Independence Day followed by the weekly holiday on Sunday.
Prasanthi was filled to its brim and one could see huge serpentine lines outside the
canteens, reminding one of a Shivarathri or a Birthday occasion…. …And for a close
onlooker curious enough to learn the best out of observation the week had plenty to
The Gujarat Youth finally got their dues, an opportunity to stage a programme, but
not without the test of uncertainty. Repeating a script similar to that of the
previous evening, wherein instructions came to the UK group to get set for a
programme session, the youth got to perform a small skit entitled “Sai
Aapadbandhavaya Namaha” portraying some of the real life incidents happened during
the Sri Sathya Sai Village Integration Programme.
Call it a prelude to National Independence Day, the devotees from Srikakulam, came
in large numbers, a whopping 3500, on a Parthi Yathra put up a programme, a Dance
Drama, “Sai Bharati”, which sang paeans of praise on the greatness, grandeur and
glory of the sacredness of the great land of Bharat. In an imaginative portrayal,
brining in three great men of the time, namely, Max Muller, Rabindranath Tagore and
Bal Gangadhar Tilak unto the portals of Prasanthi Nilayam, the drama spoke through
these great men showcasing the ever colourful greater glory of the land of Bharat.
Something that is so close to His heart, something that comes quite often
referentially in His Divine discourses, noble women of the Land, was hailed by Max
Muller for their pristine character. This land of piety and nobility attained plenty
and prosperity and became the teacher of all the nations of the world because of
such women of chastity, said Max Muller glorifying Bharat. …In a sudden act of
blessing in appreciation, at this point, in between the presentation, Bhagawan
called “Max Muller” on stage to present him with a materialised golden chain!
Synthesis of Seva and Sadhana, perhaps this was what the 180 odd Youth Group from
the United Kingdom wanted to achieve as the troupe had their regular Sadhana
sessions continued before leaving back to the Kingdom happily after securing His
Divine ‘go-ahead’. The Youth of Sai Kingdom left on the 13th August, joyous and
filled to the brim with Swami’s Love, knowing full well in their hearts that what
they experienced in Prasanthi over their two weeks stay were rare chances indeed.
Next to follow was the “Falling Weekend”…with three consecutive holidays,
Krishnashtami, Independence Day followed by the national public holiday Sunday
brought a sudden surge of rush. …and the Krishnashtami morning had the rare Divine
Darshan that had been otherwise missing for 10-12 days. Yellow clad Bhagawan granted
darshan to the vast concourse of devotees making the morning a most memorable one.
Evening programme was marked by the regular “Gokulam Procession” of quadrupeds and
special keerthanams sung on Lord Krishna. Bhagawan, during His darshan rounds,
blessed the animals and birds, a traditional affair every year during the occasion,
symbolizing the Dwapara’s age old tradition derived out of Lord Krishna’s greater
affinity towards the quadruped…
The 63rd Independence Day of Bharat was marked with the flag hoisting ceremony at
various educational institutions in Prasanthi Nilayam. In the Prasanthi Nilayam
campus, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Vishwanath Pandit, addressing the students, exhorted
them to develop greater love toward motherland following Bhagawan’s Ideals. Where
love for mother and motherland has often been referred to as a duty par excellence,
by none other than the Avatar of the Age, Prasanthi Nilayam gets to witness
flashbacks from Nation’s Freedom struggle, recurrently every year, on the occasion
of National Independence Day, 15th August. 15th August, being a marked day with some
other engagements in Prasanthi Nilayam, the final year Post Graduate students from
the University staged a drama on the 16th August evening, “Bharatha Bhagya Vidhata”,
a portrayal of celebrity saint, Aurobindo Ghosh, whose undisputed role in Swaraj
Movement aimed at National Independence was depicted with astounding precision
bringing in subtler elements of his unflinching love and devotion to Bhagawan Sri
Krishna that finally played a pivotal role for the country winning her Independence.
A convention of Thyagajeevis (of Alike and Muddenahalli) and Brahmacharis in
Prasanthi Nilayam and Brindavan was held on the 15th August in the building adjacent
to Bhagawan’s residence. Over 240 Thyagajeevis and Brahmacharis attended the one day
symposium organized with the blessings and guidance of Bhagawan. Eminent speakers
addressed the convention were Sri Sanjay Sahani, Principal, Brindavan Campus, Sri
B.N.Narasimhamurthy, Warden, Brindavan Campus, Prof. G.Venkataraman, formerly Vice
Chancellor, Sri Sathya Sai University, Sri. S.V.Giri, formerly Vice Chancellor, Sri
Sathya Sai University, Dr. Shiva Shankar Sai, Warden, Prasanthi Nilayam Campus, Sri
Vedanarayanan, Faculty with Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School, Sri U. Gangadhar
Bhat, Chairman, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust and Sri Narayana Rao, Secretary,
Sathya Sai Institutions, Muddenahalli.
Earlier, as a prelude to the a symposium, Mr. Narasimhamurthy, Warden, Brindavan
Campus addressed the gathering of “two hundred and forty” evincing details of the
proceedings followed by a peptalk on the greater significance of the institution of
Brahmacharya. Quoting Bhagawan, he announced that, You have made the sacred decision
in your life; hold on to it; you could not have done anything better… Bhagawan
blessed the meet at the valedictory function in the evening on the 15th Aug. He
exhorted the participants to practise all that had been deliberated during the
Three hundred and sixty young farmers with marginal land holdings, trained specially
on educare, medicare and sociocare in the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Agriculture
and Biotechnology, Aksa village, Malad were brought to Prasanthi Nilayam for Divine
Darshan under the auspices of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, Maharashtra. The
Vision of the “Sai Institute” is to grant the youth of rural and tribal India, which
constitute almost 70 per cent of our population, the message and practice of Human
Values of Bhagawan by imparting proper training which will help transform their
The students from Brindavan and Anantapur campuses had been to Prasanthi Nilayam for

A group of 130 Youth (ladies) from Dharwad, Karnataka and a big contingent
comprising 2150 Youth from Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh have come on Parthi Yatra
and are currently camping in Prasanthi Nilayam.
His subtle moves, if one could call it so, on the 15th August evening after the
Bhajans, Bhagawan called one of the singers and asked him something about the
“old-fashioned” Universal Prayer, “Lokaha Samasthaha…” and the students chanted the
same thrice followed by the revised prayer that has been in practice for almost an
year, “Samastha Lokaha Sukhino Bhavanthu…”
The week that gone past “passed the baton” to the fresh one, passing the beauteous,
mellifluous voice that heard echoing, often heard humming intertwined in the drama
presentation, the song of “Divine Romance” that enchanted the minds, hearts and
souls… “Shyamala Komala Hey Gopalana Tumho Mere Bhagawan… Shraddha Bhakthi Deejo
Dayakari Sreedhara Kripaa Nidaan….”
LOVING HIS UNCERTAINTY
Posted at 1100 Hrs.IST on 10th Aug 2009
God willing…is a common answer to many a question in Prasanthi, be it about one’s
next trip to the Divine Abode, be it on a proposed programme in the immediate Divine
Presence or be it anything. For the devotees it is “His Uncertainty” that makes
things more Divine, allowing themselves to resign to His Will!
The One who is hailed as Kaalaatheethaya, one who reigns over the concept of time
and in whose presence time verily stands still, it is He who decides…and whose Will
The week that gone past had elements of “Divine Uncertainty” in ample measure. The
week that missed morning darshans completely, witnessed delayed darshan sessions in
the evenings, as Bhagawan chose to come late, often touching the six o’ clock mark
to stay for shorter sessions before retiring. Though many groups were camping, two
from the US, one from Canada, the U.K. Youth Sadhana Group, the Youth Group from
Himachal Pradesh and the Parthi Yatra contingent from Gujarat, all groups well set
to for presentations in the Divine Presence, God’s greater uncertainty prevailed
upon as the whole week till the last session on Sunday evening found only one group
getting the nod, the Youth from Himachal Pradesh.
A musical offering entitled “Sai Naam Taarakam”, a composition of selected verses
from the vast treasure house of traditional keerthanams, atypical from the normal
tone n’ tenor, strung together as a single piece and sung in tune with the famous
“Hanuman Chalisa” was the offering at the Divine Lotus Feet by the Youth on the
auspicious evening of Rakhi Purnima celebrated all over India as Raksha Bandhan.
Though the programme had two more sessions as originally scheduled, Bhagawan called
for Arathi out of turn bringing the programme to an abrupt end before retiring to
Prayerful hearts, submissive to His Divine Will were only too happy to enjoy His
uncertainty than forcing upon the Lord to grab their chances. A rare call came on
the 7th evening, most unexpectedly, when Bhagawan was about to retire to Yajur
Mandiram. Bhagawan had asked the UK Group Leader Mr. Ajit Popat to have their
musical session though Arathi was already offered. Though the group was well set for
a show, with their musical paraphernalia kept ready in the mandir, despite
Bhagawan’s repeated loving insistence - not once, but thrice, the dutiful servant,
with his eyes moist, prayed to Bhagawan that they would be having their session the
next day, if permitted; the reasoning was logical as it would be late for Bhagawan
to sit and watch the programme as the session for the day was already completed,
saving blushes of causing ‘discomfort’ to Bhagawan.
Though the next day, Saturday passed without any programme, the call came on Sunday
evening, when, amid the Vedam chanting instructions came from the Yajur Mandiram for
the group to get seated for the musical session. Beating the uncertainty, the Lord
came at 18:15 hrs. blessing the vast concourse of devotees that filled the Sai
Kulwant Hall….and what followed was a glittering twilight musical session, where
Lord reigned supreme, presiding over the session much awaited…and music was heard,
scoring in a fusion of east and west, parading songs on various God forms lighting
up hearts and souls to greater devotional ecstasy. This included an instrumental
piece, a musical medley of various songs of Lord Shiva, a Khawali, and a short stint
of Bhajans. A special mention should be made on the Sitarist, Ms. Rupa Panesar who
excelled with her blend of rhythm and beats boosting the effort making the evening a
lively musical twilight.
A CD titled “Language of the Heart” containing devotionals in nine different
languages, including four overseas languages was blessed and released by Bhagawan
during the occasion.
The week’s Rose Beneficiaries were Mr. Banerjee, Overseas Accomodation Office, Col.
(Retd.) Shyam Nanda, formerly Chief Security Officer, Mr. Janakiraman, Security
Officer, Mr. Bhaskar Rao, Maintenance Cell, Mr. K.V.Rao, Accomodation Office, Mr.
Nageswara Rao, Maintenance Cell, Mr. Chatterjee, Public Relations Office etc. The
Nursing Batch of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences - Bangalore, 92
girls, was camping in Prasanthi seeking His Divine Darshan during the weekend.
Gujarath Youth is still camping in Prasanthi and a Parthi Yatra contingent of over
1800 is expected from Srikakulam district in the coming week..
After a week full of testing and tasting of His Divine Uncertainty Prasanthi gears
up looking for yet another week with fresh happenings.
