Would You Love To Join This Sacrosanct Mission?

Are we aware of… Are we aware of this stupendous happening in the sacrosanct Abode Of Sri Sathya Sai, Prasanthi Nilayam, on 31st August 2008, wherein Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai, The Cosmic Supreme Divine, rephrased the cosmic MahaMantra for Universal Peace, ‘Lokah Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu’ into ‘Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu’, all in a trice, sans any pretence…???

Thus Spake Sai on August 31, 2008, addressing a group of ‘His’ former students in the sacrosanct bhajan hall in Prasanthi Nilayam:

“At the end of the bhajans, you are chanting “Lokah Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu”.  As you chant this, you are thinking of only this world, in which you are living in, implying an individual feeling. This is not correct. It is “Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu”, which is an expansive, all-encompassing feeling, covering all the worlds, meaning, May All The Beings In All The Worlds Be Happy.”

…And as per His Divine Commandment, after an initial three rounds of instant chanting in that  that  very sacred evening, the newly born Maha Mantra, “Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu” came into existence from Thursday, 4th September 2008.

Now, the onus is on us us to remind and remember today, in the eternal now, that if alone our Beloved Bhagawan had anything, anytime categorised as His lone ‘desire’, that was (is) ‘Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu’.

Concluding His Dasara Divine discourse in 2009, Bhagawan spoke of God’s one and only ‘desire’:

“God illumines the entire universe as the Atma Tatwa immanent in all the living beings and objects. Even though God may appear to be involved in so many activities in the world, it is only for the pleasure of His devotees. He has no desire of His own. He has only one desire – Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu!”

Taking cue from this above statement from our most Beloved Bhagawan, Who Is The One And Only Source and Force for His creation and beyond, for all the worlds and beyond, for the Cosmic Existence and beyond, let’s pledge today, in the Everlasting Now, to plunge into, dedicating ourselves to an Eternal Yajna of intentional chanting of ‘Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu’… in an effort to fulfil our Beloved’s lone ‘desire’.

If we have to live a life that pleases You, Sweet Mother Sai,
We earnestly need to chant: ‘Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu’,
Peace for all beings,
For all are dear to You,
Peace for all beings,
For all belong to You,
This prayer pleases You immensely,
So let us chant it incessantly,
For life should be lived to please only You…
