Serenading Lord Rama In Sai Rama’s OmniPresence…

 The rare beauty of nectarous Sri Rama Katha was sung in His immediate Divine OmniPresence on the auspicious Sri Rama Navami evening today, in Prasanthi Nilayam. Prasanthi possesses cherished nostalgic memories of Bhagawan asking the students to sing His ‘Rama’ story, often leaving Him ‘lost’ in the incomparable beauty of ‘His Own’ from the Treta Yuga. The programme titled ‘Sri Rama Vandanam’ was offered by the Prasanthi Music Troupe of Bhagawan’s students working in various Prasanthi institutions. read more »

The You Inside Of You Is Waiting For You…

25th March 2011, the Divine Chariot cruised along on a carpet of adoration that distinctly flowed from every heart that had gathered in Sai Kulwant Hall that evening, for a glimpse of God. All necks craned to view this most adored form. Awe, exultation and deep reverence did exude forth embracing the ever loving and living God. This exhibition of ‘The Beauty Beyond Compare’ is chronicled as ‘The Ultimate Darshan – Thus Far”. Commemorating the momentous moment that has no parallel, as one more 25th March approaches, Sri Jullie Chaudhuri takes her devotional imagination recapitulating the ‘The Incomparable Beauty Of The Beauty Beyond Compare. read more »

The ‘SaiLent’ Beginning Of Sai-Lent…

The Christian Lent, as a religious practice, was an unknown to me until March 2016. It was in March 2016 when I had travelled to Pune, on a visit to my ‘adopted’ mother, that I happened to hear of the same for the first time. One fine morning, during a dog-walk within the living society premises, she had something profound to share with me, baring her heart full of something new, fragrant, that was welling up. She said: ‘…I have a strong, surging feeling within that we should sanctify this period (ensuing period of Bhagawan’s SSSIHMS stay) by doing something profound, by walking His path, walking His talk, practising Him, paying our reverence and gratitude to Him…for all that He stands for?’…She went on:  ’I don’t know, this ‘Sai-Lent’ keeps hitting me over and over again. I have an unusual inner feeling about it.’ From The Prasanthi Reporter’s desk.  read more »

Beloved Bhagawan And The Period Of Lent

Bhagawan chose the period of Lent in 2011 for His stay in the SSSIHMS and His – this most baffling, unfathomable Drama culminating in the ‘withdrawal’ of His Beatific Form. Quite significantly, what does this period mean and signify to each one of us…to all us…to every bit on Planet Earth? Sri Jullie Chaudhuri reminisces… read more »

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai And The Period He Silently ‘Lent’ Us

We are passing through a unique period of Sai Lent… a period of intense sadhana, as rightly called, Sai Sadhana – Sai Aradhana. For The Supreme Resolve Whose Munificence touched you and me and His entire creation, we humans, being His contemporaries, recipients of His boundless bounty of Love, must resolve to step back to Him… silently recapitulating His Life and the Sai Lent He ‘Lent’ Us… knowing its fullest significance… a thought-provoking writing from Sri Jullie Chaudhuri commemorating the period of Sai Lent.  read more »

Soaking In HeartFelt Gratitude…

Being grateful is termed as the magical secret of success… and for the colossally magnanimous, bounteous flow of grace of Creator Supreme, but for Whose grace the possible turns into appear as a myth – ‘impossible’, where success masks itself appearing to express as abject failure, if one wants to express gratitude he is sure to be forced to content with absolute discontentment, of being unable to express it to his heart’s fullest content. read more »

Musical Ugadi Evening In Prasanthi Nilayam…

There was a rendition this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam that began quite uniquely with… ‘Allah-Sri Rama…’ that was potent enough to open the eyes of the naysayers of the prospect of a united world…a world that boasts of Oneness. Prasanthi Nilayam that stands for Universal-Cosmic-Oneness often comes up with such reminders of cosmic proportions, reminding the world of the untold beauty of unity. read more »

Ugadi In Prasanthi Nilayam…

It is said, one can feel Him first, hear Him next before having the coveted Sight – Darshan. At a time when the most beauteous form remains elusive for the myopic eyes, when The Beauty Beyond Compare Is missing from the human world, what best Prasanthi Nilayam could offer was the ‘next-best’, His most mellifluous voice of Supreme Wisdom, that gushes forth nostalgia galore. Truly, there was an electrifying Divine Divine discourse during the day that enraptured one and all. read more »
