Odisha Parthi Yatra…

Odisha Parthi Yatra 2017 donned a different colour this time in contrary to the previous years, as this year the Lord HimSelf embarked on a Ratha Yatra, traversing a distance of 1400 kms in 11 days to reach the holy Abode at Prasanthi Nilayam. Named as ‘Puri Parthi Prema Plabana Yatra’, the Chariot Procession started on the 14th of August to reach Prasanthi Nilayam on 25th, attended by 40 dedicated youth from the State.

Celebrating the occasion, devotees from the State presented a string of cultural presentations this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam.

The programme started at 1700 with an address by the State President Of SSSSO – Odisha. Three Odia devotional followed next before a dance drama presentation by the students from Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar, Baripada.

The drama entitled “Love Begets Love” illustrated the life of a little boy who was lost in the forest, befriending with the animal kingdom, drinking the nectar of ‘pure’ love from the nature around. The presentation served the message of Pure Love that begets Love in return.

Two more short plays on ‘live’ incidents of Seva by the Youth Of Odisha followed, one depicting an act of saving the life of a youth, who fell unconscious for over 21 days, but saved by the grace of Swami followed by a a cleanliness drive ina mosque during the holy month of Ramzan.

In the first case, the youth, who was found in an unconscious state was rushed to a hospital, but was the youth sevadals were left clueless for over 21 days as to ‘who n’what’ the youth was. As was His way, to meet with the almost unaffordable rising medical bill, someone came forward with an an unusual offer, offering a blank cheque, thanks to Swami. As the boy awoke to consciousness after 21 days, his identity was tranced that he was hailing from Cuttack. The youth, without losing any more time, met with the parents with the happy news, paving way for a grand reunion. At the end it was Swami and His unbounded love that remained in the air, engulfing one and all.

The second play was about a cleanliness drive organised by the Youth, cleaning a mosque and surrounding areas, during the holy month of Ramzan, spreading the message of communal, religious harmony as propagated by Bhagawan.

Bhajans next ended with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
