      November 23rd: 12:30 pm - November 23rd Program
       
      The morning celebrations have just finished in Puttaparthi. Swami arrived at stadium at 7:30 am and was accompanied by the marching bands. The fireworks went as soon as Sathya Sai Baba entered the ground. The ground was a sea of humanity. Swami was heart fully welcomed by all the devotees. Then Swami gave blessings to all the guest. Half of the Indian Cricket team arrived for the event. Sachin Tendulkar wished Swami happy birthday and said that he was very happy to be in the presence of Swami and privileged to be here for the 80th birthday.
       
      Then there was a song by Bala Subramanyam well known Indian singer who sang for Swami from the dais which was erected in the ladies stand. After the songs two devotees gave speeches one of them was the international sai organization leader Mr. Goldstein. He spoke about how devotee should see Swami in them and they should thing about asking, who am I to themselves before asking who are you. Then After that Swami gave a discourse Started with saying that "Kindness and help should be done with rightness and truthfulness. Only then they will be of value. Swami also said that now people are doing Show work rather than doing social work. Swami asked the devotee to see the god in themselves. Swami said that there is no use changing gods every time something happens. God is one and pray to one God from birth to death. Swami said that devotees should not aspire for worldly pleasures and should seek spiritual life. Swami said at the end of the discourse that he was very happy that so many people showed their love to Swami by attending the event. Swami wished them all a peace full, happy life. Mr. Anil Kumar missed the happy life so Swami repeated it again. And the crowd clapped their hearts out. After the discourse Swami accepted presents from the guest. Many of them gave Swami gift even the Indian cricket team did. After that Swami sat for a while then the aarathi started ending the morning event. There will more programs in the evening at 5:00 pm. Announcement was made that Prasadam will be distributed at the food counters where free food was being give. Then Swami left the ground at around 10:10 am.
       
      All through the event there was drizzling but never did it rain hardly enough to stop the proceedings. By the end of the discourse the rain was completely gone and it was getting warmer.

      Swami just left for the stadium at 7:30 am. As i am writing this i can hear the crackers going off. So far like ten of them have gone off 70 more to go. I tried to get a picture of Swami while Swami was going to stadium but Swami's car was surrounded by police and sevadals. I am about to leave to the stadium will let you know more later. Until then keep watching the webcam.
