Prashanthi Nilayam set for Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam - Sakshi Post


Prasanthi Nilayam Township in Anantapur is gearing up for the Second Anniversary of  Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam,on 24 April, this year amid heartfelt remembrance of the enchanting Divinity, commemorating the ascent of the Avatar from the physical plane, who walked the Earth for over eight decades. Baba has shown the world how to love and how to live in love.

Baba’s devotees firmly believe that it was His Sankalpa that when the Infinite One resolved to end His finite state on earth and return to Himself. In His infinite form, now,  He continues His Divine Mission, continues to be with His devotees. He continues to manifest Himself whenever and wherever He wills. His mission is ever expansive.
Millions of devotees around the world have experienced His divine presence and pristine love. There are no physical limitations for Baba, and He manifests anywhere according to His will. Baba reminds us that our true nature is divine.
The Andhra Pradesh Governor, His Excellency Shri ESL Narasimhan, last year on Aradhana Mahotsavam on 24 April 2012  equated  Baba  with Sun, who shines all the time without any beginning or end. The Governor beautifully narrated, the Sun grants happiness to everyone without any discrimination and Baba is someone whom one should experience, and He is eternal.
Baba has millions of followers all over the world from all strata, including scores of dignitaries from Prime Ministers to Presidents not just attracted to Him, but they revere Baba as the Divine Incarnate.
Baba’s work for education, social care, poor and medical relief is unmatched by any charity in the world.
Baba said, “You will not be wrong, if you call Me Prema-Swaroopa” In fact, Baba showers Prema, seeks prema and establishes Prema in the heart of the individual. His Devotees experience Baba in almost every phase of their lives. He has cured intractable illness; He has infused confidence and courage; He has opened several satisfying opportunities for millions of  His volunteers, offering skills and strength at  service of fellowmen.
The Five Year plan document of Government of India added a citation to the  Sri Sathya Sai  Central Trust in appreciation of the  Free Drinking water project of Baba , which read – “Sri Sathya Sai Trust has set an unparalleled example of private initiative in implementing a project on their own, without any state's budgetary support, a massive water supply project, with an expenditure of Rs. 3,000 million to benefit 731 scarcity and fluoride/salinity-affected villages of Andhra Pradesh.. Baba seeing the poor in Chennai city  struggling for water, instructed 
His central trust take up the construction of a 63-km stretch of in the Telugu Ganga scheme…. Thus, Krishna water reached Chennai, irrigating some three lakh hectares of agricultural land on the way. The Department of Posts, Government of India, released a postage stamp and a postal cover in recognition of the pioneering service rendered by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in addressing the problem of providing safe drinking water to rural masses.
Further to laud and commend the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust in its initiatives to continue the Baba’s Social welfare programs, the Trust has  recently announced that it  would spend  Rs. 80 corers to take up the extension of  Free Drinking Water Project to  benefit  118 villages and 2.5  lakh rural population,which were in the clutches of heavy fluoride content presently.
The Sathya Sai Trust runs world-class specialty hospitals, General Hospitals, Mobile Hospitals and number of medical and health units. They have served  over 4 million patients so far , performed some 35,000 cardiac surgeries, 54,000 cardiac cathertisations, 10,000 neuro surgeries, 60,000 eye surgeries, and 1000 orthopedic surgeries and treated millions more — all free. There is no  a billing department. The bill for these services might exceed Rs 1,000 crore. Baba’s trusts also run free educational institutions, cultural centres and music colleges.
Even after Baba’s attaining MahaSamdhi  hundreds of thousands of His followers have witnessed emanations of vibhuti, nectar, gems from pictures of  Sai Baba, in homes and shrines in places hundreds of miles away from Puttaparthi. To millions, Sai Baba is God; to his disbelievers He is the unparalleled humanist.
Baba’s message to Humanity is clear: Love is God; live in love. In fact, He says , when truth and love go together, nonviolence is the result. Divinity is only one; it assumes different forms in different ages. Sai Baba, in His Cosmic form, continues to inspire millions  and  initiate messages of truth, peace, love and non-violence.
It is well known fact that Baba maintained that he did not require followers to give up their religious beliefs.. Shri  RJ Rathanakar , Member of the Central Trust held that Sai Baba’s popularity  continues to be huge across the globe and each day thousands of devotees from all faiths and  different regions of the world  continue to visit Prasanthi Nilayam travelling from far and wide, including from  all States of India and abroad.
Prashanti Nilayam, the ashram of Sai Baba, will witness a series of programmes to mark the occasion Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam (grand festival of adoration and homage)  on 24 April 2013 with hundreds of thousands of  pilgrims participating in the  holy Anniversary. Baba’s devotees firmly believe  that …there is no corner of this universe where Sathya Sai is not…He will be there for time eternal…fortunate are those who continue to enjoy His communion.. It’s time for all millions of His followers to walk  their lives in His footsteps to serve the needy and uphold the pristine culture, that Baba Lived.
