On the eve of Holy Guru Pournima today Sri Sathya Sai International Organisations presented an evening of inspirational talk and rejuvenating devotional music here in Prasanthi Nilayam.
The session started with an address by Mr Leonardo Gutter of Argentina, a veteran for over three decades with active roles in the organizations.
We all have come here in Prasanthi Nilayam after thousands of lives of struggle, as we are ready to move forward with intensity in our Sadhana to know our reality, said Mr Leonardo Gutter deliberating on the greater glory of Prasanthi Nilayam. Mentioning some of the interesting transformation stories from world over, Mr Gutter stressed on Bhagawan’s emphasis, given to the Prasanthi Council office bearers, to go and spread His message around the world.
Giving a brief overview of the spread and influence of the Organisation internationally, Mr Gutter then highlighted on the absolute essential “Love” while being engaged in His mission. Narrating his own personal story of ‘entry’ into the Sai fold, decades ago, how he earned a ‘Yes’ from Bhagawan after he offered a ‘yes’ the previous night, Dr Gutter reminded the audience of the absolute need to ‘be ready’ by not ‘disappointing’ Him.
Dr Narendranath Reddy, Chairman, International Sri Sathya Sai Organisations, then address the audience speaking on Sathya Sai Mission.
Sharing his personal and international travel experiences Dr Reddy then underlined the uniqueness of His Avataric Mission, that is, He Is The Bodha Guru, Guru and God in One… reminding the audience of His first and foremost teaching “Manasa Bhajare Guru Charanam…”
Purpose of Sathya Sai Organisation is very simple… is to realise our innate reality and help our brothers and sisters to realise the same, echoed the speaker quoting Bhagawan. Guru – Gu is gunaatheetha… Ru is attributeless and thus He Is meant to take one and all across, to the Supreme Reality.
Divulging more about the mission ahead in spreading His message, Dr Reddy then shared with the audience some of the important service projects on the anvil in various parts of the world, including service to the four-legged children of Sai. Story that followed next had some of the amazing features and achievements in the field of Sathya Sai Educations, bringing laurels Sri Sathya Sai’s Name, with effective transformation.
Touching in brief the humanitarian service activities around the world, Dr Reddy concluded with his profound personal experience with Bhagawan, wherein, Bhagawan asked him to strive relentlessly to know the Truth Within, man’s first and foremost duty.
A short video on International Sai Organisation’s relief activities followed next, before the final presentation of a Chinese Choir by the Sathya Sai Choir of Malaysia. Singing a stream of melodies of ‘Love For Bhagawan’ the session ensued next presented eight beautiful pieces that include, some of Prasanthi Bhajans, English and Mandarin numbers, including “You Raise Me Up…” to end with “Yuga Yuga Ke Avatara…” and “Amazing Grace…”.
