PRASANTHI THIS WEEK
Yet another 'eventful' Summer Week
Posted at 20:50 Hrs. May 17, 2009, Prasanthi Nilayam:
Summer’s travails seem to have not affected the hallowed spiritual township, Prasanthi Nilayam. Despite scorching summer, the township was abuzz though no special programmes or events were scheduled for the week. With Bhagawan granting darshan invariably every evening, often spending time onstage interacting with students, the week was indeed eventful for the hundreds and thousands of devotees present here.
Followed by the President of India’s visit coupled with some other popular political figures during the last week, two more politicos, the VHP leader and veteran devotee Ashok Singhal followed by the Maharashtra Home Minister, Jayant Patil, visited Prasanthi Nilayam during this week, paying obeisance to Bhagawan.
Entrance examinations for the University, the Higher Secondary and Primary Institutions entered the final phase with last set of exams and interviews scheduled for the week end. The coming week would be a week of expectations for many a student aspirants when results are expected to be announced.
The coming week would also mark the second year of passing away of Bhagawan’s pet elephant, illustrious Sai Gita. It was on 22nd May 2007 at 1800 Hrs. IST that the pachyderm dropped down after a lengthy script of glorious fifty years of dedicated service at His Divine Lotus Feet!
With yet another summer week comes to an end, one could see a steady stream of devotees flowing to the township to catch a glimpse of the Lord; and Prasanthi is abuzz.
