In a world rampant with ‘dark knights’ of destruction, if, today, man is to seek a ‘safe home’, his ‘answer’ will be a definite G-O-D…’S-A-I’. Presenting the theme of SAI, being the ‘Safest Place’, devotees from Mexico and Central American countries presented a drama entitled ‘Swami Is The Safest Place’ this evening here, in Prasanthi Nilayam. The presentation was organised on the margins of a 3-day Sri Sathya Sai World Conference under the auspices of SSIO.
The drama, set in the home country, in two distinct stories of two individuals having contrasting feelings towards the Sathya Sai Organizational activities drove home the point that after much of soaring in heights of delusion, through the ‘muddy and murky’, one has to finally perch ‘back’ on the tree of sweet home, GOD… S-A-I.
The presentation portrayed two contrasting characters, son of an ‘arrogant and intimidating’ father, a father – who never accepted the selfless motto of his Sai-oriented son, and a rebellious daughter of a pious Sai-devout mother, who, at every instance fought tooth and nail to prove her point right. The son’s noble endeavours were always blocked by his intimidating father, while the mother felt hapless in convincing her girl, who was giving herself away to the delusive outside world.
Life brings greater lessons! Adversity comes at times as a ‘sailent’ reminder from the ‘Greater Heaven’, reminding one that he or she should not toe the line.
In the ‘referential’ cases here, of the antagonists in the story, adversity soon struck both the lives, who, in their trying moments returned to senses to effect transformation, knowing and experiencing Sai, Sai as the Safest Place’.
The Dominican Republic, Brazil and Azerbaijan followed up next, presenting three distinct sessions of devotional offerings, singing their hearts’ content in their vernacular.
The Dominicans with a soloist’s ecstatic pursuit of the Divine, with accompaniment, the Brazilians with the collective ‘boisterous’ pursuit in ‘Brazilian’, and finally the Azerbaijanis with their soothing ‘tranquilizers’ on ‘Allah Sai’ proved a point that Sathya Sai ‘understands’ only one language, The Language Of The Heart. All the three groups of musicians from all the three regions in their respective outfits were a picture of virtuous elegance, barring none. Preludes to the programmes, four in number,
were short and sweet, reflecting the unmatched ‘heart2Heart’ devotion of Swami’s children from overseas.
Bhajans continued and the session closed with Mangala Arathi at 1905 hrs.
