Easwaramma Day Celebrations at Sai Sruti- Kodaikannal

With the immense grace of Bhagwan ,Easwaramma day celebrations at Sai Sruti- Kodaikannal started off with Omkaram and Suprabatham  followed by Poornahuthi of Gayatri Homam. This Gayatri Japa and Homam were regularly conducted since 26th March 2020 and concluded today on 6th May 2020. After the regular Bhajans at 09.30am the grand grama seva was flagged off.
 
During Bhagwan’s physical visits to Kodai, He would lovingly instruct us to celebrate Easwaramma Day by offering Narayan Seva and by conducting Vastra Dhanam (distributing Blankets/ Dhothis and / or Sarees) to the beneficiaries. It used to be a Divine sight to watch thousands of beneficiaries’ throng at Sai Sruti to receive this Prasadam from Bhagawan. 
 
Keeping the tradition alive, this year too,the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Tamilnadu had arranged to deliver Amrutha Kalasam Kits containing essential grocery items that serves good enough for a family of four for fifteen days. This would help them to overcome their impoverished situation due to prolonged lock down. 
 
The Amrutha Kalasam kits were distributed to the deserving families of the neighborhood villages of Kodaikanal, under the supervision of RDO,  in special vehicles that  were arranged by the government functionaries to transport these kits to the villages. The village heads, VAO and in some places even the local post master had joined the distribution team in identifying and distributing these kits to the deserving families. The beneficiaries were nearly 1000 families residing at Vilpatty, Paraipatty, Nattukavai, Pallangi, JJ Nagar,Machoor, Adukkam,  Kamarajapuram and Perungadu. 
 
We thank Bhagawan for having given us the opportunity to reach out to these needy families and celebrate Mother Easwaramma Day in a befitting manner.
 
Jai Sairam

A Plethora of Spiritual Activities during Aradhana Mahotsav &

Lockdown period , Tamil Nadu

“With prayer to God, you can achieve anything in life. I want you to pray. I am always with you, in you, above you, and around you. Make efforts to instil such faith and devotion in fellow human beings. That will make Me very happy. Happiness lies in union with God. Hence contemplate on God incessantly. Never give scope for anxiety or worry.”

Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.39/Ch.1

The divine assurances that Swami has bestowed on humanity, is enough for it to survive any calamity and thus take an opportunity to dive within, to reach Him deep inside, who is ever waiting to confer the desired peace. It is with this motive the devotees of Bhagavan in the districts of Tamilnadu, actively involved themselves in spiritual Sadhana during the Aradhana month which coincided with the lock-down period, which is known as the month of “Giving and Forgiving” among Sai fraternity.

Rajapalayam District:


Activities of this samithi during this month included activities like Gayathri homam in their respective dwellings. The devotees also participated in Satsangh conducted through App in the evenings. Also, the devotees participated in bhajan sessions conducted through internet, which covered 500 bhajan songs.

Tuticorin District:

As part of the daily activities, the devotees involved themselves in chanting of Sai Gayathri from 9pm to 9.15 pm. Devotees also chanted Kandha Sashti kavacham in their daily routine.

Tirunelveli District:

Apart from Sai Gayathri chanting, the devotees participated in the Satsangh conducted through App in various topics on Ramakatha rasavahini, Bhagavad Geetha, Tapovanam. Rudram chanting was also conducted through App.

By motivating the youth boys and girls through separate App sessions and after discussions they were given 9 point of code of conduct customised to each of them, to utilise the lock down period, effectively for their spiritual sadhana. The boys and girls look upon these activities enthusiastically, by not merely participating but reporting and analysis to their respective Gurus.

Kanchi South:

Reading of Sai Literature, chanting of Sai Ashtothram and Sai Sahasranama Archana, listening to Satsangh on various topics were the activities of the devotees. Balvikas classes were conducted through app.

Kanchi North:

With the recitation of Sai Gayathri, Sai Ashtothram and Sai Sahasrananama, reading of Sai Literature and Bhajan singing in common, there were diverse activities like Satsangh through App on varied topics for Balvikas children and elders and Narayana Seva, which included supply of cooked food to the local police station, as nearly as 25 food packets on a daily basis.

Swami says,”Time waste is life waste”, and the time of little children is more valuable. Keeping this in mind, using the App, balvikas classes and training for the event of talent search were conducted and thus the children were given “Value tasks” to keep them on track of the spiritual path. Youth in these districts were also motivated to attend the Satsangh and were given bhajan training sessions too.

Namakkal District:

Devotees of this district participated in various daily individual sadhana and collective prayers as well, with ardent devotional fervour. The activities included Omkar, Suprabhatham,, study of Sai Literature, chanting of Sai Gayathri, Sai Ashtothram and Sai Sahasranama. Apart from these they also involved in Jyothi meditation, Sai Divya nama Likhitha Japam, and participated in the Satsangh conducted online from time to time. Some of them also undertake sadhana in the 9 Point code of conduct given by Swami.

Bhagawan’s Aradhana Day-April 24, 2020

Devotees across the districts of Tamilnadu, observed this day with loving devotion to Bhagawan, along with their family. Omkar, Suprabhatahm, chanting of Sai Sahasranama were a part of the day’s agenda in every devotee’s family. Apart from this some chanted Vishnu Sahasranama and listened to and sang Sai Pancharatna Kritis, which form the major part of dedication to our beloved Swami, after a due training by learning through the classes conducted via App.

Also, some of the families had their family bhajans as their offering to Swami at His divine Lotus Feet.

The events concluded with Maha Mangala Aarthi to Swami.

……..activities are still on and reporting will continue…..

Sri Sathya Sai Community Kitchen – at RED HILLS

TIRUVALLUR EAST DISTRICT, TAMIL NADU

 A humble offering at the Lotus feet of our Beloved Bhagawan Sri SriSriSathya Sai BabaVaru

Red Hills is a neighborhood in the northwestern part of Chennai, paddy and rice selling and buying is the major business in this suburban area and has one of the major water reservoirs ‘Puzhal Lake’ for the Chennai City. Mobile Hospital Seva is being conducted here for the past 5 years, where more than 450 patients are benefitted every month.

With lock down imposed by the Government of India from 25thMarch, 2020 due to Covid 19, there has been a consistent request from State Government authorities for providing food to the road side dwellers, migrant workers and daily wage workers in nearby slum. These people are sheltered in Government Community Centre and in the rice mills.

On 2ndApril, 2020 we received the approval from our Chennai Metro President Sri. S.R. Chandrasekaran for setting up Sri Sathya Sai Community Kitchen at Red Hills. He provided us with theset of instructions carrying pre-cautionary steps ensuring hygiene in the food supply to the needy and in protecting our Sevadals.

We discussed with Tahsildar of Ponneri Taluk who was very happy to note that Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organization is providing food to the needy, requested us to prepare dinner (4 Chappati’s with sabji per person) for around 500 people which includes Police personnel, Sanitary workers and the people staying in the Government Shelters.The Tahsildar provided passes to the Sevadals to carry out the same and confirmed us that respective authorities from the Government Department will collect the food packets from our end. Rice Merchants Association of Red Hills accepted to give their Marriage Hall Kitchen for preparationand packingof food. It is worthy to note that Mobile Hospital Seva is also conducted in this venue.

We had a meeting with Convenor and Sevadal of Red Hills Samithi over phone on implementing and following each and every instruction given in the preliminary steps for setting up The Sri Sathya Sai Community Kitchen (SSSCK). Subsequently Revenue Inspector of Ponneri Taluk visited the SSSCK and approved the venue and asked us to proceed with the Seva.

Our Sevadal identified a factory near Red Hills where Kneading machine and Rolling machines are available for preparing Chappatis. It is a new factory fulfilling all our set of requirements facilitating the food preparation process. 2 Sevadals go to this factory in the morning and bring the half cooked Chappatis to SSSCK for final roasting.

With Blessings of our Beloved Lord, The SSSCK started functioning from 4thApril, 2020. Please find below the number of beneficiaries from the day of commencement.

The noble work undertaken by the Organization is well appreciated by the Government officials and the number of beneficiaries is on increase day by day as one may understand from the figures. The Assistant Commissioner Of Police had commented that the taste and quality of the food supplied is worth being called ‘REAL PRASADAM FROM THE DIVINE HANDS’.Every day, Vibhuti mixed in water is sprinkled in the place of preparation, in the food prepared and the Sevadals drink the mixture and pray for the wellbeing of All.

All the Samithi’s in the Tiruvallur East district have voluntarily come forward and made generous contributions for the same. Our Heartfelt thanks to Our Dear Most Bhagavan to have Blessed us with the opportunity to execute this humble Seva to the needy. Sairam.

Multi Religious Balvikas

Loving Sairam!
 
It was a very memorable day in the history of V P Colony Samithi in Tamilnadu. It is well known that there are two Muslim & two Christian Bal Vikas children in the Samithi.
 
To facilitate them to undertake their religious prayers  *inagurated a Sarva Dharma arena in the Samithi. The holy Bible & Quran & their traditional accessories* were provided. The children performed the Christian prayer, readings of the holy Bible & a short rendition of a Biblical story. *Amidst  Quran rendering Namaz was performed even by other Children*
 
It was a miracle that Sri Gautama Buddha portrait was offered anonymously just before the commitment of the program which proved authentication by Swami. Thus we had chanting of *Buddham sharanam gacchami*
 
The portraits of other religions are to follow in due course. The children expressed their desire to render their prayers on all days.
 
Members are greatly indebted to Swami for having chosen them to participate in His divine mission of global harmony.

TAMIL NADU STATE LEVEL TALENT SEARCH 2019 @ TIRUPUR

By the Divine will and Blessings of our Beloved Bhagavan and with kind permission of our respected All India President I wish to narrate a miracle ( blessings of our Beloved Bhagavan) which happened yesterday. I had reached Chennai yesterday at 11.30 in the night after completing the state level Balvikas Talent Search at Tiruppur district, Tamilnadu. The District Education coordinator of Kanchi north Smt. Jothy Jayaraman was waiting eagerly to receive the certificate and gift which we had honoured them with at Tiruppur. There was a saree gifted for senior Mahila gurus along with the certificate and I had received it on her behalf since she was not able to come there personally to receive. She opened the cover in which the saree was packed and lo and behold, our Beloved Bhagavan had showered the saree with full of Vibhuthi blessings. This is a blessing not only for her but the gurus all over the world as a whole. Words fail to fathom the love and grace of our Beloved Bhagavan.  J Venu Gopal       (26 Dec 2019)

Bhagwan’s blessings in abundance for all the Guru’s and BV children

 SLBTS 2019

Sairam.
I am extremely happy to share that Bhagwan has  blessed all the participants during the recently held SL BTS at Tirupur in His own  inscrutable ways.
Many DEC’s have reported to me that similar Vibuthi manifestations are there in the sarees given to them too.
Not just this, Vibuthis were seen on the prize cups given away to the competition winners.
Seems like Swami is blessings all the worthy instruments on a wholesale basis.
 
Indeed His ways are mysterious, means are mischievous and the purpose are unfathomable. Yet, all His Leela’s are truly admirable beyond any words and lovable beyond our limited reasonings.
