Sri Krishna Janmashtami
Krishna Janmashtami marks the birth of Sri Krishna. Krishna was born in the Dwapara yuga, over five thousand years ago, in Mathura on the eighth day of the dark half of shravana.
Janmashtami (also called Gokulashtami) is a very colourful and joyous celebration in India. In Prasanthi Nilayam, the Mandir transforms itself into another 'Brindavan' of the times of Lord Sri Krishna when as a child He frolicked in the company of His cowherd friends.
Teachers are as a beacon of light, showing the way for the students to achieve their goal.
Thanks to their purity, patience and perseverence and with the students' determination and effort the impossible becomes possible.
Happy Teachers' Day to all guiding instruments in our lives!
On this day the Indian God Ganesha is celebrated. He removes all obstacles, as well on material as on spiritual level. He's also known as the Master of Discrimination. This quality is very important because we need it to solve practical problems or to control subtle inner processes. Devotees ask Ganesha's guidance in these matters.
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.
