Gujarati New Year In The Divine OmniPresence…

True to His famous saying Love My Uncertainty, while inviting one and all to love His uncertainty in the journey called life, it is He, Sai, Who pitches forward all the time helping, bailing out a sincere devotee in the face of any uncertainty. The Sai Youth from the State had a flavoured story on this topic this morning, well mixed with Bhagawan’s favourite theme of ‘Selfless Service’.

Today is Gujarati New Year and the session this morning commenced with a brief introductory talk  by the State President of SSSS Organisations, Sri Manohar Trikarnad. The State President wished Gujarathi brothers and sisters around the world a very happy and holy New Year, Gujarati Saal Mubarak.

Youth Girls then commenced the session with an invocatory song ‘Ye Safar Hey Pyaar Ki…’, a thematic offering on the journey of love.

The main programme for the morning was a drama presentation entitled “Antaryami Sai’ by the Sai Youth from Valsad district.

The drama portrayed the protagonist Chinmay, an enthusiastic Sai Youth who lost his appetite for service activities post Bhagawan’s withdrawal of physical frame. Left sans hope and inspiration, a completely disillusioned Chinmay withdrew himself into seclusion. His many attempts to get a decent job ended in sheer despair. In the meanwhile, the enthusiastic Sai fraternity was organising a Maha Narayayana Seva along with other activities in connection with the ensuing 91st Birthday celebrations of Beloved Bhagawan. As the discussion and preparation went on, as luck would have it, Chinmay was fondly remembered for his all-out dedicated activism. Soon he was invited and it turned out to be a ‘lucky’ beginning. Senior devotee and chief organiser Jignesh Bhai turned out to be his new source of immediate inspiration. Rekindling his spirit, Jignesh Bhai narrated a beautiful story from the time of Shirdi Sai, Who, trained His devotees to see Him in every being, advancing to a higher level in spirituality.

Against all odds, in the face of uncertainty, as Jignesh Bhai was going ahead with the Maha Narayana Seva, secretly mortgaging his personal belongings for want of immediate money, there came a twist in the story. A stranger appeared at the venue claiming himself to be a rich businessman. He, who was into catering business wanted to conduct a Narayana Seva on the occasion of his father’s 60th birthday, exactly falling on the 23rd of November. The puzzle of finding an affordable caterer was solved by Bhagawan, Who organised it in His inimitable style absolutely ‘free’, guiding the businessman vide a dream.  The businessman, who was in need of a sincere helping hand, also offered a managerial position to the young Chinmay, closing the second puzzle, a long-time search for the young, enthusiastic protagonist.

To the one who relies on Him… He is ever there, beyond all uncertainties. A fine portrayal on the importance of Selfless Service, Love and Faith.

Bhajans next ended with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
