Experiences by Devotees of Sri Sathya Sai Baba

  Avataar Day at Prasanthi Nilayam
Notes from
Indika at Prasanthi Nilayam

Sunday, October 20, 2002

Today at 10AM during Anil Kumar’s Lecture held in the N. Indian canteen mentioned that it is a very special day. He said although nothing has been announced during morning darshan, this afternoon we will have a celebration. He shared that although the dasara crowds have gone, this day is the most important & we are fortunate to be here on this day.

Today is the 62nd Anniversary of Swami announcing to the world for the first time, who he was. On October 20, 1940, Swami, after coming home from school, threw his books down and said that he no longer belongs to his family - he belongs to the people. He said, “My Devotees are waiting for me.”

In the afternoon some elders spoke and then Prof. Anil Kumar gave a talk as well. Before he began the talk, he offered a rose to Swami. Swami blessed his hands holding the rose, and then put it into Anil's coat pocket on the coat. Time was nearly running out and Swami asked Anil to end. Anil had a late start as the earlier speaker took a longer time than planned, Swami had asked her to end also. Anil so sweetly begged in front of Swami to give few more minutes, as he might not get this opportunity again. It was a very sweet moment to watch this. Swami gave his permission. Anil was so happy and was in full energy to talk about Swami on this Special Day.

We were also able to listen to the recording of Swami talking and announcing to the world who he is. Then girl students from the music school sang the Beautiful Bhajans.

Then Swami gave a discourse on how loving his mother was. Swami said he chose this couple to be his parents because they were very loving individuals.

Swami finished with the bhajan, Prema Muditha Manasekho.

Swami looked very beautiful and very, very happy. It was a lovely afternoon and we all had a great time showering in the Divine Blessings.
