Upcoming/Current Events - July
Our best wishes for the Indian Independence Day.
We express our sincere love and gratitude to Mother India.
Through unity in relation, let Independence Day inspire us to live by her example
and continue the inner battle for the freedom of our Soul.
Today several countries observe as Mothers Day to honour and rever the Universal Mother.
Swami says: "I have come especially for those of you who have never known a mother's love."
"If you honour your mother, the Mother of the universe will guard you against harm." (SSS: Vol. IV; Page 55)
In Bhagawan's words, "Onam means wearing new clothes. The 'Vastra' not only means cloth but also means heart. Therefore, the significance of wearing new clothes (Vastra) is that one should make the heart new by getting rid of all bad thoughts and feelings".
Every year thousands of devotees from all across the world, especially from the state of Kerala, throng to Prasanthi Nilayam to celebrate the festival. To Keralites, it has an added significance, as they are fortunate to celebrate the advent of Lord Mahavishnu to Kerala. Devotees and Balvikas children from the state stage different cultural programmes during these days of festivity.
Manifestations of Swami's Omnipresence
On April 24th, 2011, our dear Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's physical body has taken rest. But He lives ever so strong in the hearts of every one of us and He is with us, in us, above us, behind us, & in front of us always, to protect us, guide us and lead us to salvation.
The Samadhi (resting place) is at Sai Kulwanth Hall, Puttaparthi, India.
From out of the example of our Mother Sai , it is now up to our instruments to proceed with our mission.
Being out of His physical form, Swami is now showing Himself all over the world to His devotees, appearing in various manifestations.
