Sathya Sai Darshanam – The Beauty Beyond Compare!!!

Fri, Sep 10, 2010: Indonesia, the land with great cultural heritage, land of many islands, has come as a group on a Parthi Yathra. …And, the evening was earmarked for the island nation to celebrate the joy of the Advent of 85 years of Divine sojourn.

Given below is an excerpt from the ‘Darshan Story’ on 10 September 2010 in Prasanthi Nilayam as chronicled by The Prasanthi Reporter…

Let’s read..assimilate…live with it and thus manifest HIM, our Beloved Mother Sai!


Coming up with triple presentations, the island nation was ready on the beautiful evening joining the mass of devotees invoking the Divine. Bhagawan emerged at 1820 hrs. (06:20 pm IST), to the escort of a group from Indonesia, dressed up in colourful costumes reflecting national tradition. As The Lord moved past, Bhagawan blessed many including a group of boys having tiny Ganeshas,meant for different houses in the hostel, seeking blessings. Upon completing a full round of darshan, spending awhile with the tiny tots at the Primary School block, Bhagawan moved further into the ladies’ side. Turning about, after a full length, Bhagawan came onto the verandah, moving into the bhajan hall, where the students were waiting for “Swami” seeking blessings for a scheduled presentation on Ramzan.

Blessing the boys, Bhagawan emerged shortly to move onstage at 1840 hrs. (06:40 pm IST) and Veda chanting got into a crescendo. Seniors from the Indonesian group moved towards Bhagawan invoking blessings before the commencement of the programme.

At a time when personal interactions become a rarity, in this changing phase of time of the Avatar, every group that flocks to Prasanthi converse with The Lord through its presentations. Quite often, such programmes begin with introduction as a prelude, directly offering love and gratitude, in the process engaging in a sort of conversation with The Lord! Indonesian’s followed the pattern giving a fitting intro for the programme bursting into a melodious song, “Gaana Priye O! Bhaava Priye…” in praise of Mother Divine!

What ensued was an hour long cultural presentation by the Sai Youth, the Balvikas and the Sathya Sai Study Group of Indonesia, reflecting Bhagawan’s teachings, highlighting some of the Sai Ideals!

The final presentation was by the Sri Sathya Sai Study Group of Indonesia, a depiction of Cosmic Divine Dance of Lord Shiva! Marked by colourful costumes, to the accompaniment of typical South East Asian style of music, the presentation was an offering at Bhagawan’s Feet, seeking The Lord to shower His grace to help them achieve life’s foremost goal!

Soon after the presentation, Bhagawan moved down the dais, posing for photographs, blessing all the groups. …And the character of Ali, the good friend, earned special Divine attention as Bhagawan materialised a golden chain for the youth.

Bhagawan returned onstage and the session was far from over! As Bhagawan moved off, for a while, into the interview room, the Institute students were readying themselves for Eid celebration on the eve of the Muslim festivity. Wishing Id Mubarak, making a mention of the month long fasting and penance that entitles the community of highest Divine benediction, students burst open into a Qawwali tune in traditional Sufi style, in praise of Allah, The One Lord! Namaz, traditional Muslim prayer followed by a small skit.

Once again, after the end of the presentation, Bhagawan moved down the dais posing with His children. Returning onstage, Bhagawan sat for a while flipping through the leaves of “Holy Quran” placed at His hand by the students. At 2055 hrs. (08:55 pm IST) Bhagawan turned to the priest indicating for Mangala Arathi.

Blessing the concourse with His abhayahastha, Bhagawan moved off the dais. The time clock was ticking past 2100 hrs.  as Bhagawan was gliding into the western aisle leading to the ladies’ side retiring for the day, bringing curtains down on this glorious Prasanthi evening.
