Thu, Aug 26, 2010: Today, in the evening, Bhagawan emerged at 1745 hrs. to come for a full round of darshan. It was a slow detailed round, wherein, Bhagawan was seen interacting with many, enroute. Youth from Odisha (formerly Orissa), who were in costumes also got to interact with Him. At the primary block, Bhagawan spent a while before completing the round. Moving into the ladies’ end for an ‘extra length’, Bhagawan turned about to come onstage at 1810 hrs., from the right of Ganesha, interacting and blessing many.

Bhajans began soon as commanded by Bhagawan, much to the surprise of all. The state of Odisha was ready to stage two presentations, a short Odissi Dance presentation entitled “Dasavathar” followed by an offering of gratitude for the “Flood Of Love” of Bhagawan towards the flood ravaged districts of Odisha in rehabilitating 699 families, building as many “happy homes” along the River Mahanadi, that ran in spate causing havoc in the year 2008.

Bhajans continued for the next 45 minutes till when Bhagawan nodded for the programme to commence at 1855 hrs.. An announcement by the State President followed before internationally acclaimed dance form in “Odissi” took the centre stage, staging ‘Dashavathar’. The presentation was based on Poet Saint Jayadeva’s “Geeta Govindam”, illustrating the incarnation of Lord Vishnu as Dasavathar, ending with the final one “Kalki” representing the present day incarnation of Bhagawan.

Beginning the next presentation, “A Flood Of Love” with a background story hatched in the Divine Abode in Kailasha, wherein Lord Shiva bestows upon a special boon to Mother Parvathi that when He comes down as Sai Avatar, He will be building houses for the destitutes. Thus reveals the riveting episode of Odisha’s telling tale of Divine Love of Lord Sri Sathya Sai.
