Bhaja Govindam Satsang- Delusion to Reality-11-14 June 2020

Bhaja Govindam also known as Moha Mudgara (Destroyer of illusion) is a popular 8th century Hindu devotional composition in Sanskrit composed by Adi Shankara. This work of Adi Shankara underscores the view that devotion (Bhakti) to God, Govinda, is a vastly important part of general spirituality, as emphasised by Bhakti Yoga.

This work is generally considered a summary of Adi Shankara’s Advaita Vedanta philosophy. 

In this prayer, Adi Shankaracharya emphasizes the importance of devotion for God as a means to spiritual development and to liberation from the cycle of birth and death. The prayer leaves one in no doubt that the renunciation of our egotistical differences and surrender to God makes for salvation.

Team Sri Sathya Sai Anugraham thanks each one you for being a lovely audience to this amazing journey by Shri. Subramanian Chidambaram.

Swami message at Sai Prem was Expansion of Love
Uthishtatha, Jagratha, Praptatha. Wake up from this darkness of ignorance. Narrow mindedness is ignorance. Develop expansion of love, not contraction of love. We have narrow-minded love today. Such a broad-minded love is on the decline today.

Embodiments of Love Body is like a water bubble. Mind is a mad monkey. Do not follow the mind. Do not follow the body. Follow the Atmic principle. That is Follow the Master, Face the Devil, Fight to the End and Finish the Game. Follow the heart. Follow the conscience. Conscience will not change. You set high ideals for humanity in every matter. Today’s youth argue against true values and put forth many wrong arguments in matters relating to God. They do not recognize the truth considering such wrong arguments as modern fashion. That is not good.
