Onam festivity continues…

Two speeches and a dance programme featured the second evening of the ongoing 3-day Onam celebrations in Prasanthi Nilayam today.

The programme commenced at 1700 hrs. with an introductory speech by one of the senior office bearers of SSSSO – Kerala.

Addressing first, Hon’ble Justice Sri PB Suresh Kumar of Kerala High Court, who was a Balvikas student and a long time devotee of Bhagawan shared his personal perceptions narrating how Bhagawan has been guiding him through personally and professionally. Speaking with great humility, the Hon’ble Judge mentioned about his current position as a great opportunity to serve the deserving in the country. He has also narrated how Bhagawan in His own inimitable style solved a couple of professional hindrances helping him to move from Kerala to Delhi, to practise at The Supreme Court Of India.

Sri P Satheesh Chandra of SSSIHMS, Whitefield was the second speaker for the evening. An alumnus of SSSIHL, Satheesh Chandra had undertaken a unique task of traversing the length and breadth of Kerala on a bicycle, carrying Bhagawan’s Love, meeting up post-operative patients coming under SRP, Sai Rehabilitation Programme for cardiac patients. Satheesh Chandra spoke about his unique experiences during his arduous ‘love’ filled journey from Kasargode to Thiruvananthapuram and then to Kanyakumari.

A dance programme by the Balvikas children from Alleppy district followed next. The children began their program with the first bhajan sung by Bhagawan, ‘Manasa Bhajare Guru Charanam’, followed by popular devotional songs in various languages. The programme, incidentally on a very auspoicious ‘Sani Trayodashi’ evening aptly ended with the dance for the bhajan “Nache Bhola Nath”.

All the particapting children were felicitated at the end of the session. Bhajans continued and ended with Mangala Arathi at 1850 hrs.

Tomorrow is Thiruvonam, the day on which, as per the legend, Emperor Mahabali returns to the State, once in every year.
