Jai Jai Ram Krishna Hari was heard
again in Sai Kulwant Hall as thousands of devotees from Maharashtra
and Goa are celebrating Ashadi Ekadashi in the immediate Divine
Presence of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, today. Bhagawan
arrived in the fully packed Sai Kulwant Hall at 9:00 a.m.
to the accompaniment of Vedic Chants by the students of Sri
Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning. He went round the
entire Sai Kulwant Hall granting darshan to thousands gathered
before taking His seat on the specially decorated podium to
receive traditional welcome by the office bearers of Sri Sathya
Sai Seva Organisations, Maharashtra & Goa. This was followed
by an Invocatory Welcome Song by the Maharashtra Choir and
arrival of ‘Varkaris’ dancing in ecstasy (symbolically
signifying the ‘Dindi Yatra’ that happens every
year during this period in Maharashtra) surcharging the atmosphere
with divine vibrations. This was reminiscent of those days
when two of the greatest saints of Maharashtra, Sant Jnaneshwar
and Sant Tukaram set out for Pandarpur with their hearts resonating
with …Jai Jai Ram Krishna Hari and mind fully
engrossed in spiritual ecstasy.
The next was a musical presentation entitled
GOD – THE ONLY FRIEND. Man today lives in a delusion
that he is the doer which is incorrect. The reality that the
doer is some one else…some one more powerful…more
effulgent…more grand… and this can be understood
only by a true devotee of God. He is man’s true friend…and
He is God. The faster man realizes this, the swifter will
be the journey to the Divine Lotus Feet. This was the
central theme of the musical presentation entitled GOD –
THE ONLY FRIEND presented by Bal Vikas Children and Youth
Wing of Maharashtra.
