Twin Inspiring Speeches…

Inspiring speeches by two of the International Sai Organisation office bearers was the highlight of the morning session today, in the ongoing 91st Birthday Celebrations of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba here, in Prasanthi Nilayam.

Addressing first, Ms Petra Van Kalinowski, Chair Person, Zone 7, SSIO, spoke of her late journey into the fold of Sri Sathya Sai. Being a late comer, after missing out practising human values during early moulding years, the speaker said, finally, after a long search she not only found Sathya, but Sri Sathya Sai HimSelf.

Quoting Bhagawan vide His letter written to a devotee from the US long ago, Petra, who spoke in a soft, serene tone, urged the audience to seek the butter, never be satisfied with the buttermilk. Accepting and acknowledging the ever incomprehensible mystery of Sri Sathya Sai, she reminded the audience that one has to simply accept Him…most unconditionally, ever ready for ceaseless work, as His instrument. He Is The Driving Force for everyone and He has a Master Plan for all of us, concluded the veteran speaker who has been into the Sai-Fold now for over 33 years. Ms Petra hails from Germany.

The next speaker, a young and dynamic Alex Ghrana, National Service Coordinator of the SSIO from the United States, spoke on the ultimate theory of Oneness, being the core of Bhagawan’s teachings. Principle of Oneness alone make us to follow His teachings in essence, echoed the speaker further explaining the importance of practising “Love All Serve All” adhering to the principle of Unity. To make His words ‘true’, that the world will become a Sathya Sai Organisations, we must become exemplars, following His teachings. Divulging into all-round intensity, a must for practising Sai, Alex reminded the audience of the absolute need to seek the Ultimate Thing for which Bhagawan has come on planet Earth.

Bhajans next ended with Mangala Arathi at 0935 hrs.
