The Onus Of The Prasanthi Tag – The ‘Burden’ Of Being a ‘Prasanthi Nilayam Representative’

Puttaparthi is undoubtedly ‘The Land That Did Penance’, and Prasanthi Nilayam, ‘The Supreme Abode Of Peace’. For them who are blessed to be…, …blessed to live in ‘His Own’ sacrosanct Prasanthi Nilayam, does the ‘code of conduct’ remain the same like any other place, or does it come with any special ‘responsible’ tag? …An enlightening reminder from Bhagawan HimSelf.

The Only Correct Definition Of Truth Is, ‘That Which Krishna Speaks’…

Who else other than Bhagawan can describe the attributes and features of His previous ‘Avatar’ Bhagawan Sri Krishna, Who descended over five thousand years ago during the Dwapara!?! …And when He HimSelf speaks about HimSelf, it becomes a rare spiritual feast. Bhagwan discoursed on the Sri Krishna Janmashtami occasion in the year 1977, “this day is being celebrated as the ‘Birth­Day’ of Krishna, not for the reason that Krishna is being born every year, but, be­cause the hour, the asterisk, the month and the season during which He was born ages ago, recur every year, and this day, we have the same conjunction as happened when He was born millennia ago. Read on an extract from this Divine discourse, delivered at the Brindavan Hostel, Whitefield, Bengaluru.

Eashwaramma…the Amma Of SaiEashwara…

Who is Easwaramma? She is the mother of Easwara, said Bhagawan discoursing about the most privileged mother on planet earth, and in the entire creation, whose supreme destiny to carry ‘God’ in physical in her womb would ever remain unmatched, in the history ‘His-Story’. Sacrificing her claim upon her ‘Bundle Of Joy’ for the sake of humanity, the simple rustic illiterate mother hailing from Puttaparthi often stayed away from the limelight, astutely following Him with a heart full of love and devotion. Looking back into ‘His Story’, while dwelling upon the beauty of this tender-hearted Chosen Mother of Beloved Mother Sai, let’s join ‘Mother Sai Poet’ Sri Jullie Chaudhuri in singing this Supreme Mother’s glory, remembering Her on the occasion of Mother Easwaramma Day, on 6th May. read more »

Why Do We Call Him Back???

Never before in the ‘His-Story’ of Avatars that we witnessed countless clamour for an encore… encore of His Earthly Sojourn. Be it in the Treta or in the Dwapara or even after in the first quarter of the 20th century with Shirdi Sai… there was never any clamour for an encore. With Sri Sathya Sai, The One Who ‘hailed’ HimSelf as ‘Sarvadevadaateeta Swarupa‘… The One Who Is Beyond All Other Forms… after the Divinely ‘fateful’ April 2011, there has been innumerable instances of calling Him back… why? …and how do we manifest Him back? …a poetic ‘reminder’ from the desk of ‘The Prasanthi Reporter’. read more »

Sai Lent…The Period Sai Lent Us…

Prof. Kasturi, Bhagawan’s chosen biographer had rightly described HIM as The InCredible, The InExplicable, The InScrutable… When His biography was on the anvil, He alone guided Him to title it in the most perfect way ‘Divinity deserves’, Sathyam Sivam Sundaram.

OneNess – The Mantra Of True Truth Aspirants…

Ekoham Bahusyami – the most authentic Indian scriptural declaration about the process of creation indicates that in the ‘beginningless’ beginning The One chose to become many. The Big Bang theory of the western philosophy also points towards the same truth, of The One multiplying into many. The term ‘Oneness’ points towards The One without any second, call it Totality or The Absolute. Isn’t it the beginning of the ‘beginningless’ beginning? If one subtly observes the created world around, the answer becomes quite clear that, there is no second thing, except The One. To understand this man has to exercise a reverse engineering process, turning himself inward, instead of being focused on the illusory, hallucinatory world around. read more »
