Primary & Higher Secondary Alumni Offer Gratitude…

Back home, at the hallowed portals of Prasanthi Nilayam, hundreds of former students of Primary and Higher Secondary Wings of Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School offered an evening of love and gratitude today, on the New Year Eve here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

It is at this very portals that these students learnt the Art Of Living and finer aspects of the Art Of Being.

The programme commenced with an initial invocation followed by an introductory talk, introducing the speaker and the rest of the programme.

The speaker, Ms Bharatilakshmi, a former faculty at Bhagawan’s Primary School and an award winning teacher with great credentials, spoke of her interesting journey unto Swami, concluding in a convincing tone restating that ‘Sai Is Everything’.

Skits followed next, illustrating Swami’s messages on Vedas, Virtues etc. Explaining in detail the efficacy of Veda chanting and It’s universal application, skits followed next dealt with a question and answer session between a teacher and a group of students, educatiing the youngsters on the importance of Sense Control, Gratitude, Narayana Seva and Selfless Service.

The final phase of the programme was a presentation on the epic Ramayana. Presenting the topic innovatively, with a mix of video caricatures, Ramakatha songs and snippets of Divine discourses, the presentation concluded with an assertion by the alumni that as in the Ramayana Story, involving Gurukula education, imparting finer teachings of the Art Of Being, Bhagawan’s Primary School also provided them with the same basis, providing the best of moulding, under Bhagawan’s direct guidance. The grateful alumni ended the programme with a group song “Sai Darbar Hey Jag Sara…”

Bhajans continued and the session ended with Mangala Arathi at 1850 hrs.
