Rudra Kramarchana to Sai Lingeshwara…

Scholarly talk, Divine discourse and scriptural renditions marked the second evening of the ongoing three day Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam, today here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

Earlier, proceedings for the evening commenced at 1700 hrs. with Rudam Chanting by the students.

Dr Papaya Sastry, an erudite Telugu professor was the guest speaker for the evening. Beginning his speech with a lengthy Telugu poetic rendition on the glory of Sri Sathya Sai, the learned speaker from Gollapudi, Khammam district of Andhra Pradesh spoke on for the next 45 minutes on Lord Sri Ramachandra as Embodiment Of Dharma.

Bhagawan’s Divine Discourse followed next, played on the Public Address System. Exhorting the audience to delve in to self-inquiry to know “Who Am I?”, Bhagawan assured the devotees that once they know their real essence, rest will be known.

Real spirituality is to get rid off all animal, bestial tendencies to transform into human to ultimately become Divine.

Human life is essentially Divine and God created humans with a purpose. Man should understand this and act upon said Bhagawan, illustrating a Mahabharata episode involving Bhagawan Sri Krishna and Dharmaja.

Speaking on ancient mode of worship of Mother Nature and Mother Earth, Bhagawan posed a question as to, if Mother Nature and Mother Earth are providing all wherewithal for human beings, what is wrong in worshipping them as Divine.

Bhagawan concluded His Divine discourse with the bhajan, Hari Bhajana Bina Sukha Shanthi Nahi…

Continuing with the Vishwa Shanthi Loka Kalyana Homam, Rudra Kramarchana was offered by the priests next, to the Sri Sayeeshwara Lingam. Other scriptural chanting for the evening includes Trishathi, Shiva Sahasranama and Lalitha Sahasra Nama Parayanams.

Tomorrow being the final day of the three-day Homam, Sudarshana Homam will be conducted before the Maha Purnahuthi Offering.

Bhajans continued before Mangala Arathi offering at 1950  hrs.
