Sai Youth, Youth Vikas from Indonesia, then presented a drama entitled “The Confucius – The Righteous” on the life of legendary Chinese philospher, teacher and Spiritual Master Confucius who lived over 2500 years ago. The presentation was set in a homely background having a grand father and grand daughter engaged in discussions leading unto Sai, Nine Point Code Of Conduct. Caught off guard by the grandfather, for knowing Sai as Everything, but not practising His 9-Point Code Of Conduct, when the girl turned perplexed, a consoling and caring grand father, pacifyied the girl narrating the ideal life story of Confucius.

Showing some of the noted incidents from his illustrious life, highlighting his golden rule: “What we do not expect others do to us then do not do it to others”, the presentation illustrated how Confucius could bring radical changes in Chinese civilisation, helping the society from the clutches of despicable inhuman rules. Even as a famous Confucius subsequently earned the warth of jealous men in the palace, resulting in him being exiled from the Kingdom, Confucius travelled across the country preaching his philosophy to the eager and anxious ones only to return much wiser helping humanity at large, leaving his footprints in the sands of time.

A couple of dance presentations followed before the studnets burst into Bhajans that ended with Bhagawan singing Thursday Special “Ksheerabdi Shayana Narayana…”

Mangala Arathi at 1830 hrs. marked the end of the proceedings.
