The Agnipariksha…

With the arrival of simmering summer it is holiday time for the students from Bhagawan’s esteemed educational institutions. Branded as future ambassadors, these students carry a special ‘burden’ to be role models in the society, in letter and spirit.  The Supreme God Who Has, and the Alma mater that has, shaped them into what they are today have to be honoured through ideal conduct. And they have to also ensure that the crusade of their trust, faith, love and hope will not to be overcome or disturbed by the tiresome tirade of tattered tongues, spitting venom full of malice, unaware of the Truth. Sai students need not get panicky at the thought of holidays. Of course, we should remember to have an iron control over ourselves when we go home for holidays, writes M. Sainath, 3rd B.Sc., Prasanthi Nilayam Campus as published in Sanathana Sarathi April, 1988, later republished under Sai Spiritual Showers.
