North Kanchipuram Parthi Yatra – Day 1

Devotees in large numbers from the North Kanchipuram district of Tamil Nadu are on a 2-day Parthi Yatra to sacrosanct Abode of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai, Prasanthi Nilayam. Coming up with the theme ‘Ceiling On Desires’ the contingent had two separate programme at the Sanctum Sanctorum this evening, a musical followed by a short ‘lively’ drama presentation.

The first offering, a delightful musical, mridangam ensemble, by the blossoming ‘Bal Vikas’ buds came up with a demonstration of their skills playing four different thalasmridangam coupled with vocal, on four distinct bhajans.

Next presentation, a drama entitled ‘Sai Soul Dears’, by the Disaster Management Team of SSSSO, served a pointer to the ever-expanding excellent service being rendered by the SSSSO in the area of Disaster Management. The Disaster Management had its initiation under the direct instance of Bhagawan in the year 2002 and has been one of the most effective wings of the SSSSO serving thousands during times of trial, be it tsunami, earthquake or floods barring time and place across India.

The live presentation turned out to be an awareness session serving useful tips on acting in different critical situations. Sai Kulwant Hall turned into a class room of practical demonstration, explaining and demonstrating life-saving tips during natural calamities, be it floods or earth quakes or any other calamity. From the ravaging tsunami that hit TN in the year 2004 to the latest flood that gulped the land of Kerala last year, the DM has been active, through and through, taking His message ‘Love All Serve All’. ‘Paropakarartham Idam Shareeram’, (the body has been given to us in order to benefit others) and the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation that had the unique distinction of having The Name Of The SupremeMost Divine Persona in its label does it uniquely, growing from strength to strength serving the afflicted.

Yes, the volunteers are Sai Soldiers, or more aptly Sai Soul Dears!!! Disaster Management is Bhagawan’s Vision and that becomes His Mission!!!

The presentation ended with a video on the mammoth DM initiative.

Bhajans next followed by Mangala Arathi marking the end of the session.
