Why Do Seva For Animals?

Where man believes in the Fatherhood Of God, he is bound to follow His precept “All Are One…” fulfilling His dictum per word, acting upon it by being “Alike To Everyone…” Quoting Bhagawan’s precious gems on service to the co-inhabiting world of creatures, Late Ms. Mercini Sheratt, a champion animal lover who tirelessly worked for the co-existing world of varied lives, writes about the supreme significance of doing service to this unique world of beings. After a glorious earthly sojourn carrying a precious heart filled with Love All Serve All,  Help Ever Hurt Never, this Champion Crusader of the muted ones traveled back to The Source some time back, merging at Bhagawan’s Divine Lotus Feet. Ms. Mercini has always been our constant inspiration, for this particular section of The Prasanthi Reporter. Honoring SSIO’s crusade for Animal Love under the theme LOVE FOR ANIMALS, we continue with our series from Prasanthi Nilayam, carrying on ‘being’ their voice.  read more »

Do The Plants Complain?

An elderly sister of an inmate in Prasanthi Nilayam once asked her sibling, purely out of love and concern, as to, is he happy in Prasanthi  Nilayam. The boy, to her wonderment, ‘retorted’ questioning her ‘audacity’ to ask him such a ‘foolish’ question. He asked her, ‘how can you ask me such a question when I am with my Swami?’ Yes, we do forfeit all our rights to complain, once we are ‘basketed’ by our Beloved Bhagawan. He has often repeated, Bear All and Do Nothing; Hear All and Say Nothing; Give All and Take Nothing; Serve All and Be Nothing, exhorting His creation to excel in the path of ‘Life’ with ‘Love’. The following story, which has no bearing on the above incident, does sound this message from Bhagawan, and much more. A story from Summer Course 1978, as narrated by Sri S. Sankar, a student with Bhagawan’s institution then. read more »
