        Friday, Sep 03, 2010 - Sai News & Photo Updates: Today, in the evening, emerging at 1720 hrs., Bhagawan was ushered into the hall to a Poornakumbha Swagatham followed by a special escort of Vedic procession by a band of children from various Sathya Sai Schools across India, who have come on a Prasanthi Pilgrimage.

      Moving on, attending to some devotees and subsequently glancing upon the "Vidya Vihar Team", arrayed in hudreds, Bhagawan moved past casting His special benedictions upon the flag-bearing children posed at the centre against the backdrop for the day's programme. Moving on, Bhagawan had an interaction with some of the participants before proceeding to complete the round. Blessing the birthday boys, speaking to the chief organisers at the ladies' end, Bhagawan turned to the tiny tots from the Primary School, pausing for a while posing them, listening to their chanting encouraging them to chant with added vigour. Moving a further length into the ladies' side, Bhagawan turned about to come onto the portico, proceeding to the bhajan hall.

      Tomorrow being Arudra Star, the star presided over by Lord Shiva, is most auspicious and a Shiva Parvathi Kalyanam, a ceremony reminiscing the holy marriage betwee Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi would be held in the immediate Divine presence. Preceding to the auspicious day, this evening, Bhagawan performed the the Prana Pratishta of the idols, an act of infusing the Divine Life Force, followed by Netronmeelana, opening of the eyes of the deities, amidst Veda chanting.

       Upanayanam for the deity of Lord Chandrasekhara was also done as a part of the proceedings. The deities have been named as 'Chandrasekhara' and 'Parvathi' by Bhagawan Himself. These deities have been brought to Prasanthi Nilayam from Kumbhakonam, the 'temple town' of South India in Tamil Nadu. Before leaving the hall Bhagawan also blessed Angavastram for the priests.

      Emerging in less than ten minutes, Bhagawan came onstage at 1750 hrs. through the doctors' block.

      Veda chanting continued for ten more minutes before the commencement of the scheduled proceedings for the evening.

      Over 1400 children from 79 Sathya Sai High Schools across India have come on a pilgrimage, celebrating the 'Joy of being One in the Divine Presence of Mother Sai'. Beginning the function after invoking initial blessings, a group of children burst open with a song dancing to the tune of "Sathyam Vada Dharmam Chara...Jeevan Daata." hailing Mother Sai's glory as the Supreme Lord, the bestower of life!

      Soon, Dr. Ranga Rao, Trust Convener, Sri Sathya Sai Trust, Andhra Pradesh took over speaking on the mission and credentials of Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar Schools across India. Ninety One schools across India, including 79 High Schools with a student force of over 50000 are the centres of excellence imparting value based eductiion in the lines of the teachings of Bhagawan, said Dr. Ranga Rao, detailing credentials from the academic, sports and other extra-curricular front achieved by these schools.

      Grouped under a unique platform established in "Unity", these schools, under the label, Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar, are going to have a common logo, common uniform for the students and a common song. The"common logo" was unravelled by the Divine hands, while the common uniform is already in place. Dr. Ranga Rao also made a mention about the "Vidya Vahini" initiative mooted by the alumni of Bhagawan's Institutions, which would be of immense benefit to the teachers in getting trained to turn into professionals in Sai mode of education.

      Dr. B.G.Pitre, Director of Institute of Sri Sathya Sai Education, Mumbai presented a compendium on behalf of "All Sathya Sai Schools in India", entitled "Saplings of Love" that was released by the Divine hands.

      Representing the schools, four children from four different parts of India presented short speeches on the subject, Sathyam Vada Dharmam Chara, in Hindi, Telugu, Sanskrit and English. While a boy from Rishikesh spoke in Hindi, three girls Hyderabad, Chennai and Delhi followed in Telugu, Sanskrit and English respectively, essentially highlighting the greater importance of the subject under discussion in present times.

      "Sai Vidya Sarasa Vidya", a dance drama highlighting the importance of eduction imparted in Sathya Sai Schools followed. The presentation was a depiction of Deshabhakthi Vidya, Mathrubhakthi Vidya and Seva Bhakthi Vidya finally reiterating the truth that the only way to tranform the world is to propagate Sai Vidya in every nook and corner of the world.

      As the presentation got off, Bhagawan moved off the dais to get into the interview room. Spending almost fifteen minutes in, Bhagawan moved into the bhajan hall to emerge and come onstage at 1900 hrs. ...And the programme continued.

      The forty five minute presentation was a combined effort from the Sathya Sai Schools from Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Gujarath. Presentation was intertwined with thematic dance songs sequences illustrating the above three aspects, devotion and love for Motherland, devotion and love for Mother, devotion and love towards Service to Humanity. The presentation ended with a colourful dance followed by a reference to Prasanthi Nilayam which is verily the Kaliyuga Kaliyuga Kalisam and Navayuga Vaikuntam where dwells Sri Sathya Sai Saraswathi, the bestower of all boons.

      "...Bhagawan moved down the dais, posing for photograph session with the participating children..."

      At the end of the presentation, Bhagawan moved down the dais, posing for photograph session with the participating children assembled devoid of all barriers. Returning onto the stage in ten minutes, Bhagawan sat for some more time, as presentations, sarees and safari pieces for children went for distribution. At 1936 hrs., Bhagawan accepted Mangala Arathi. Asking the children to assemble in the front, Bhagawan graciously permitted the children to sing one Ganesha bhajan before asking for one more Arathi at 1945 hrs.

      Moving off the dais, Bhagawan glided into the ladies' side at 1950 hrs. moving towards Yajur Mandiram, retiring for the day.
