Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital Turns 63

Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital turns 63 this year. Commemorating the occasion, the staffers from the Temple Of Healing presented an evening of musical adoration at the Sanctum Sanctorum this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam.

The session commenced with a brief address by Dr. Vinod Kumar Varma, Superintendent at Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital. Recounting Bhagawan’s bountiful love that resulted in the inception of the hospital, Dr Varma in his address briefly explained some of the statistical highlights before  concluding with a prayer seeking His continual blessings. He treats, He heals, concluded Dr. Varma, referring to Bhagawan’s Healing Hands.

A musical offering, ‘SAI – Service, Adoration, Illumination’ followed next. Setting the tone with an invocatory number in Raga Hamsadhwani, ‘Saieeshwara Nee Padhamula Sannidhini…’ the number that followed was ‘Vaidhyanathashtakam‘ set in Raga Kanada. The session flowed on with a piece extolling the protector of the universe, singing ‘Aadimoolame Maaku Antharaksha…’ in Raga Anandabhairavi, Adi Shankara’s Nirvanashatakam, ‘Mano Budhyahankara…’ in Raga Yaman Kalyani, concluding with ‘Achutam Kesavam Krishna Damodaram…’

The session interspersed with beautiful narrations was in line with the title ‘S-A-I, Service, Adoration, Illumination’ explaining the purport behind with beautiful anecdotes of the three paths, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga. A unique offering by the medicos and paramedics, who are His chosen instruments in His Medicare Mission, determined to serve the humanity with His Love…Love…Love…Prema Yoga!!!

Bhagawan’s Divine discourse followed next, played on the public address system. The discourse dated 7th Feb 1993 turned out to be an enlightening one with Bhagawan divulging into the mysteries of human life, the spiritual aspect leading to constant integrated awareness, leading to Atma Jnana.  Hailing doctors as the very form of Narayana, Bhagawan exhorted them to see that no one should be allowed to shed a drop of tear. Do it to the extent possible, forgetting the result, concluded Bhagawan.
