Sai Youth – Karnataka Parthi Yatra

Following the successful completion of a 41- day ritual of ‘Ishta Devata Vratam’, a Kannadiga tradition, over 1800 Sai Youth from Karnataka have come, for the first time, to sacrosanct Prasanthi Nilayam on motorbikes, participating in a Motorbike Rally aiming at spreading Bhagawan’s message. Youth from 33 of the 36 Sathya Sai districts are participating in this Rally. Adding on over 700 Mahila Youth also joined the troupe, participating in the 2-day Yatra. 

Addressing the Youth in His immediate Divine OmniPresence this evening Sri Nagesh G. Dhakkappa, State President, SSSSO,  urged the participants to follow the recommendations of the first ever Sai Youth Conference in 1997, that laid down principles for Dharmic Excellence for the youth. Being ideal in all walks of life is important, stressed the State President, highlighting on the need to practise Bhagawan’s footsteps.

State Youth Coordinator Sri Rajsekhar Reddy then addressed the youth in Kannada, profusely thanking Bhagawan for the ceaseless blessing and thus the successful completion of the rally.

A music offering followed next, “Hum Tere Hey Sai”. Propitiating the Primal Deity Lord Ganesh through a Purandaradasa kriti “Sharanu Siddhi Vinayaka”, the session flowed on with a Kanakadasa kriti “Baagilanu Teredu”, “Prem Ki Pukaar”, “Sankara Nadasarirapara”, “Shubhakarudu Suruchirudu” a composition by Bhakta Ramdas, Purandasa composition “Neenyako Ninna Hangyako”, “Sadguru Tumhare Pyaar Ne”, “Bho Shambho Shiva Shambho Swayambho” to conclude with the title song ‘Hum Tere Hey Sai”, re-pledging at His Lotus Feet. Sure enough, the session was poignant to the core, wrenching hearts many, stirrings souls countless, seeking Prasanthi deep within, in Sai…Sai…Sai alone! The youth had embarked on the Yatra after successfully completing a 41-day ‘Vratam’, offering gratitude to Beloved Bhagawan.

Bhajans continued and the session concluded with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
