COOL SHOWERS OF GRACE AT PRASANTHI
BHAGWAN RETURNS FROM KODAI
4th May 2009: Swami always says that joy and sorrow follow each other so closely. Devotees at Sai Shruti Kodaikanal, bid a rather tearful farewell to Swami as He boarded his chartered helicopter at 9.05 AM this morning. Back home at Prashanthi Nilayam, there was a buzz of activity to welcome Swami in about 2 hours time. Ten days of pure joy of darshan, sparshan and sambhashan for the Kodai devotees will now be followed for deep yearning to see His smiling countenance once more.
At 11.15, the special aircraft touched down at Puttaparthi Airport. Agninakshatram is scorching the rocky terrain but no one seems to care. Devotees are thronging either side of the road as the motorcade passes along, drenching everyone with happiness.
At the gates the boys chanting the Vedas received Bhagawan. Quickly followed up by the Bhajan Group who sang, “Swagata Shubha Vandanam, Easwaramba Priya Nandanam…”, specially composed for the occasion and Bhagawan seemed to be happy to be back Home!
Prasanthi Nilayam has come alive. And is fast gearing up to celebrate Eswaramma Day with Bhagawan. A day celebrated in remembrance of Bhagawan’s Divine Mother who gifted us this bundle of joy.
