Prasanthi Vidhwan MahaSabha – Day 1

Following the initiation of the Dasara Jnana Saptaha Yajna this morning, the Prasanthi Vidhwan MahaSabha, ensemble of the learned, commenced this evening, marked by a speech, Divine discourse, followed by a musical offering. The speaker for the day was Sri CR Santosh, Doctoral Research Scholar from the Prasanthi Nilayam campus of SSSIHL. With the help of anecdotes and analogies from the beautiful Bharatvarsha tales, the young speaker elucidated on the greater significance of the unparalleled love of Beloved Mother Sai.

Focusing on the central theme – Incomparable Love Of Mother Divine – the speaker, with 2 distinct incidents, a seemingly insignificant one from his own Diary of 2010 at Brindavan Hostel followed by an awe-inspiring Prasanthi tale dates back to a few decades, underscored in bold capitals the central theme for the day, ‘The Love Of A Thousand Mother’. Exhorting to see Mother in The Divine and in turn, to see Divinity in the physical mother, Santosh, talking on the significance of the Devi Navaratri, reminded the audience of the absolute need of the hour, love and respect for mother and parents in general.

Bhagawan’s Divine discourse followed next, aired on the public address system. Discoursing on Yama and Niyama Bhagawan spoke on the human values, speaking in detail about various aspects relating to human lives.

It is not perfection in the art that matters for the Divine, but perfection in the heart. The Muddenahalli musical offering next turned out to be a heartfelt call for the Mother Divine. The young raw talents sang their hearts out in the twilight, lifting up hearts many expressing deep passion for the Mother Divine, seeking Her immediate Presence. They ended up with a soul-stirring rap, calling Her out, beseeching for Her Darshan, all sans any instrument, with music emanating from effortless mimicking. In tandem with the music, a group of painters were on a special task, sketching the Mother Divine on a black canvas, a graceful endeavour with lots of aesthetic sense.

Earlier, the session commenced with invocatory Vedam by the students of Brindavan Campus. Master Of Ceremonies Sri H. Abhishek, Asst Prof, Dept Of Physics then introduced the session next, touching upon the significance of Prasanthi Vidhwan MahaSabha.

Bhajans continued and Mangala Arathi marked the end of the day’s proceedings.
