Offers Rich Gratitude…
Posing themselves as “Shauriyas”, meaning Soldier’s Of Sai, passing out batch of under graduate students from the Brindavan Campus of SSSIHL presented the final gratitude offering for the academic year 2012-13 this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.
The one-hour presentation had group songs, dance and skit and multilingual expressions of His Touch Of Love & Grace.
Ready to step out of the campus, these students, 93 in number, began their presentation with an emphatic declaration echoing, Living With God Is True Education…and with Swami’s Love Our Lives Have Been Transformed.
The rest of the evening’s script was a continuation from this statement, narrating the evergreen, unmatched Bond Of Love between Mother Sai and His ‘properties’.
The presentation began with an offering to Lord Ganesha before switching into the usual Prasanthi pattern of Gratitude Offerings, bursting into melodious tunes interspersed with soulful narrations.
Naive yet ‘experienced’ with their level of understanding, these students declared to Bhagawan that He is their Father…Mother…Friend…Guru and God! As the floodgates of Sai Tales turned opened experiences poured forth in a seemingly unending stream underlying the essential Truth that Sai remains the first…intermittent and last word in their lives.
The narration of experiences ranged from anecdotes echoing… a fleeting thought turned prayer that became effective to produce a ‘miracle’ in healing a contagious eye syndrome…to… a convincing darshan of ‘Sai Krishna’ bringing clarity to a doubting mind of the oneness of Sai and Krishna…to…evergreen Primary School tale of Love etc…
Thanks, Gratitude and Indebtedness etc., are lofty expressions, but to this Mother of thousand mothers’ love, when offered unto Him, these expressions become too small an offering, said one of the students opening his heart out speaking in chaste Malayalam narrating a story of His ‘Visiting Card’, happened over 22 summers ago, when the boy was still in his mother’s womb, saving her from a certain ‘jaundice’ disaster, by way of a Sai-dream.
“We Will Be Ever For You All Our Lives…” echoed the students bursting into their final song, Tere Sangh Hum Rehney Ki Hum Kushi Manaathey Hey…”. This is not the end, but a graduation, graduating to a new beginning, to new frontiers of love with Divine Mother Sai.
At the end of the presentation the refrain was still fresh in the air, that echoed in the entire Sai Kulwant Hall…and definitely in the ever melting Supreme Mother Sai’s Heart…WE LOVE YOU SWAMI…
Even as bhajans continued prasadam was distributed and Mangala Arathi was offered at 1900 hrs. at the end of the final bhajan, Sunday Special in His Divine Voice, “Rama Kodanda Rama…”

Studentship at Sathya Sai

Set to leave the hallowed portals, the passing out batch of students of Post Graduate Students of SSSIHL, Prasanthi Nilayam Campus offered rich gratitude, Hrudayaath, at Bhagawan’s Divine Lotus Feet this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.
When love fills and fulfils with all the nostalgic memories outpouring from within, of the priceless memories of the Beloved Mother’s physical presence, no hearts can ever withstand the torrential stream from within but let it out as tears of Love & Gratitude.
This evening was no different with the students bursting into melodies, experiences, poetic expressions, band music and so on attempting to describe the most indescribable, in his own own language…suffused with Love.
“Let this river of love flow into the fullness of ocean..” echoed one student beginning the script for the evening as another one burst open daring the challenge, reposing faith in Bhagawan…Life outside is tougher, still we are ready to go out and sail across as Bhagawan is ever with us…
