Brabourne stadium brings to mind the joy and exuberance of cricket fanatics who would love cricket to death and beyond. …And the stadium had produced many a cricketing hero, witnessed many a cricketing heroic. The Sunday evening, on the 1st of November witnessed another kind of joy and exuberance when the music band of the Sri Sathya Sai University transported the thousands assembled in the stadium to an unknown spiritual realm, most heavenly. They sung in the immediate Divine Presence of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba whose visit to the city entered its second and penultimate day yesterday.
Describing the event and the excitement it produced, the official Dharmakshetra website writes: “every song as the sayings goes when one discuss about a game called cricket, was like a perfect shot played by the batsman (the singers) in the presence and under the supervision of the Divine Master. Mumbai people are fond of good music. The crowd enjoyed every moment and we in Mumbai will always remember in our hearts forever. We hope that there will be more such occasions in the future”.
“Each and every songs was laced with love and true feelings. It is this love and true feelings which have drawn the boys closer to Swami. Ultimately this is the only weapon we must carry with us in order to win the love and grace of Bhagawan”.
At the end of the function the grateful students were blessed with Paadanamaskar and a coveted photo session.
Earlier, the function started at 5:00 p.m. in the evening with devotional bhajans. Bhagawan arrived at 5:50 p.m. and marking respect and reverence to Bhagawan, symbolizing love for Divinity, heart shaped red-white balloons numbering over hundred, with inscriptions “SaiRam” were released…it was Divine Romance drifting all around…and elevating the spirit came the celestial musical show, elevating the thousands of minds, hearts and souls…Brabourne’s Spiritual Show on a glittering sunday evening!!!
