Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha – Day 4

As the Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha entered day-4 today, Dr Ravi Kumar from the Brindavan Campus addressed the august gathering this evening that was followed by a Musical Offering by the Anantapur students of SSSIHL.

Offering salutation to the Mother Divine with propitiation of the last three Names of the sacred Lalita Sahasra Nama, Sri Siva, Sri Siva Shaktyakya Roopin, Sri Lalitambika… Dr Ravi Kumar then recounted the ‘Beauty Beyond Compare’ of the Divine Mother, Beloved Mother Sai, beginning with his entry into the fold of Sai in 1963. With a couple of anecdotes from His Story, the speaker reminded the audience why Mother Sai is ever the most accessible Mother Divine.

The speaker, whose association with Sri Sathya Sai dates back to over three-and-a-half decade, spoke of some of the most nostalgic of his experiences from his early childhood before coming up with a most defiant yet, absolutely faithful story from his diary of experiences that ultimately won him a permanent seat at His Lotus Feet.

In conclusion, Dr Ravi Kumar reminded the audience of the greater need to stay connected, utilizing the best at His Feet, burning load-ful of karma – to satiate lives.

Dr Ravi Kumar is an Associate Professor with Dept of Chemistry at SSSIHL. He is also the Warden of the Brindavan Hostel of SSSIHL.

Bhagawan’s Divine discourse was aired next, played on the public address system.

A musical offering by the Anantapur Campus was the final offering for the day. Opting to lose their identity with Supreme Mother Sai, brightening the waning twilight, the girls sang an array of compilations, praising, pleading and purifying – singing face to Face with Sai Maa.

Earlier, the Brindavan students set the proceedings on for the evening, with a  vibrant Vedic invocation, propitiating Mother Saraswathi. This was followed by an introduction by Sri Rajeev Rajan, a faculty at the Brindavan Campus. c

Bhajans continued and the session concluded with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan at 1830 hrs.
