Reports of events from the Sai Baba Ashrams


Reporting from Prasanthi Nilayam - 21st November 2005

21st November 2005, 2:30 p.m. IST Reporting from Prasanthi Nilayam

The mood is absolutely upbeat with just one more day to go for the dawn of the day all of us have been waiting for… 23rd November 2005, the Day privileged to usher the 80th Year of the Advent of Bhagawan. Thousands of devotees have already occupied the nook and corner of this township, unmindful of inconveniences one could expect during such festive gatherings, be it the chillness that is the climate for the season in Puttaparthi, or the security restrictions imposed upon, they yearn to have a glimpse of the Lord. One could feel the pulse that every being present in this holy Abode wants to be a part of this historic spiritual carnival on Earth, that is unmatched by its spiritual stature.

True to Bhagawan’s famous adage, Service to Man is Service to God, one could see thousands of Sevadal volunteers of Sri Sathya Sai Organisations actively engaged in relentless all-round service to make every bit of the celebrations a grand success; be it the trolley-pushing young sevadals transporting heavy luggage of devotees; young group of sevadals offering drinking water with love to quench the thirst; the doctors of paramedical staff rendering round the clock medical service, security sevadals doing crowd-control; sevadals who are manning various temporary counters; sevadals who are the backbone of massive cooking and serving, Selfless Service is the lone Mantra for this highly motivated lot.

High gear preparation in the main venue of the function, at the Hill View stadium got a real boost today with the unexpected visit of Bhagawan to oversee the arrangements. To the delight of hundreds of sevadals, technical staff and students who were involved in various preparatory activities Bhagawan came to the stadium at 11:05 a.m., drove straight to the Shanti Vedika to have a look at the decorations on the stage. Smiling face of the Lord was indeed a green signal for all the elaborate preparations in progress at this main venue. Bhagawan went back to His Divine Abode after spending nearly ten minutes on the stage.
