Beloved Bhagawan left us all a legacy; a legacy to carry His mission forward. And what does His mission entail? It may mean different things to different people, but the core remains the same - Selfless Service and Sacrifice and a life based on the principles of Sathya, Dharma, Shanti, Prema,and Ahimsa in thought, word and deed. ‘Prashanti’ is the expansion of peace. Prashanti Nilayam is within all of us, blazing forth the harmony of universal brotherhood that Beloved Bhagawan represents. And so, right at this moment let us all re-pledge our lives and pray to our dear Lord, that we may be guided always by Him to be befitting instruments of this harmony and for the restoration of Prashanti.
Wherever we are, let us pause and pray for the peace that His presence represents and only His presence can bring. A chain of thoughts across the globe...we can make a difference, for we are the difference....every drop knows the ocean to be its very own...as does each ray of the sun....lets do it for our very own Beloved One. Read a poem from Ms. Jullie Chaudhuri. Is not His very 'presence' amongst us His biggest legacy? let's ponder over it....
The Lord speaks from within us all,
Respond must we to His divine call,
Urging us to blaze forth His legacy,
Of brotherhood, peace and harmony,
Prashanti, Prashanti, Prashanti,
Expansion of Peace…
He wanted it so,
And that is how it shall be…
Are we all ready for it?
Putting in all our effort,
Doing our bit,
Can we allow life to pass us by,
Overlooking the message of Beloved Mother Sai?
Introspect, retrospect, inspect, pause and think,
Re-establish, reconnect, de-link and re- link,
Rededicate, re-pledge, replace, reinstate,
The shower of His love,
The prize winning bait,
Abundance we did receive,
And still do too,
Is there something missing,
That we need to do?
Re-dedicate, re-pledge, resolve, renew,
Our vows to the Beloved One,
To reflect His glory and effulgence,
What have we done or left undone?
What do we need to do,
To allow His message to seep through?
Sathya, Dharma, Shanti
Prema and Ahimsa,
Simple teachings profound and true,
Love All, Serve All; Help Ever, Hurt Never,
And Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu,
Has the flame within burnt through?
Let us re-ignite this spark for it is our Cosmic due,
It’s all about priorities that we must value,
Or sink in the quicksand of regrets and rue,
Strengthen, deepen, step up and intensify,
For time has no time, on swift wings it flies by,
We owe it to the One Who gave us life,
Who is our life,
We owe it, dear ones, to Beloved Mother Sai!!!
