Enlightening Speeches and Musical Offering…

Detach yourself from body attachment and develop attachment to the Atma to the extent possible, exhorted Bhagawan ‘delivering’ His Divine discourse here in the second evening of Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha today. Man alone is responsible for both pain and pleasure; Right from birth man is accumulating all worldly transient things, said Bhagawan narrating  the story of a dog chasing the bone, ending up hurting its eye, rejoicing at its own blood.

Earlier, the second day of Prassanthi Vidwan Mahasabha commenced with Veda chanting by the students followed by a brief spell of chanting by the students from Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School.

First speaker for the session of Kum D. Bhargavi, Asst. Professor with Dept. Of English at the Anantapur Campus of SSSIHL. Kum. Bhargavi’s speech was centred around the theme ‘acceptance’. Flashing her memories back to an interesting episode from her student days with Bhagawan, wherein she could not muster the courage to accept the challenge to speak in His Divine presence, when an opportunity came off the cuff, Kum Bhargavi spoke on the various levels of acceptance one must muster that includes acceptance with ‘self-confidence’ at a personal level, acceptance of God, acceptance of God’s Words and acceptance of God’s lessons.

The second speaker, Sri Mudigonda Brahmananda Sastri, in his illuminating speech in Telugu, portrayed Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai as the very embodiment of Lord Sri Ramachandra of Treta Yuga and Bhgawan Sri Krishna of Dwapara Yuga. The speaker substantiated his splendid theme by quoting apt instance from the life of Sri Rama, Sri Krishna and Sri Sathya Sai which demonstrated the supreme virtues of the three Avatar,  sweetness of speech, adherence to righteousness, unflinching subservience to the wishes of devotees and supreme serenity.

Post the speeches, students from SSSIHL, Anantapur Campus presented a musical offering singing paeans to Bhagawan. Beginning with invoking Lord Ganesha, the girls sang another song extolling Mother Durga, Premaswarupini Srikari Shankari…., followed by a Telugu number illustrating the unfolding of His Avataric Mission to sign off singing a Hindi number offering gratitude to Beloved Mother Sai.

The musical programme was followed by Divine Discourse that reverberated in the spacious hall. Bhajans continued and ended with Bhagawan singing Bhaja Govindam…Bhaja Govindam…  The session ended with Mangala Arathi at 1850 hrs.
