SSS University Convocation
The Convocation of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning is celebrated on the 22nd of November every year.
An excerpt from Swami's Discourses:
"Students, Boys and Girls!
Give up selfishness. Develop the spirit of sacrifice. Be prepared to sacrifice your life for the sake of Sathya and Dharma (truth and righteousness). Today people are afraid to follow the path of truth. Why should one be afraid to speak the truth? In fact, one should be afraid to utter falsehood. One who adheres to truth is always fearless. When you do not follow the path of truth, the fire of fear will burn you to ashes."
Happy Birthday Swami!
On the 23rd of November, we celebrate the anniversary of the Advent of our Lord Sai amongst us. It is an opportunity for mankind to pay homage to this embodiment of selfless love. Swami says that His real birthday takes place the day God is born in our heart.
Guru Nanak Jayanti
This day is observed as the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.
He is revered as a great seer, saint, mystic and poet and gave great importance to bhajans (devotional singing).
His main message was to spread love, peace, and truth. He was influenced by both Hindus and Muslims, especially Sufism.
This festival is celebrated with pride, honor and great respect. Processions are carried out and the temples are decorated and illuminated.
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.
