This afternoon marked another beautiful day as Swamy blessed all of us with His divine darshan and also divine Discourse. This afternoon as the car was parked at the verandah Swamy went into the interview room and after 15 minutes He came on the stage. Today Swamy preferred to be wheeled and as He came on the stage He was shifted to a much better chair that was already placed on the dias.
This afternoon there were 2 speakers blessed by Swamy to address the gathering the first one was Mr.Sanjay Mahalingam, Ex student of Swamy and presently doing his Phd on the teachings of Sri Adi Sankaracharya. He spoke elaborately on Detatchment. He reminded that Detatchment is the best Sadhana. He narrated a conversation with Swamy where one ex student of Swamy (Swamys institution) complained to Swamy that He was not able to control his mind and Swamy replied.. Is that so? Tell me where is your mind and I will control it? Brother Lingam, continued, we should have total control over mind and move forward in our spiritual journey..
After about 30 minutes of his talk, He bowed to Swamy for giving him the opportunity and when he went back to Swamy to take His blessings, He was asked to continue his talk and brother Lingam enthusiastically obliged and narrated few epics from Bhagwatgita.
There was another Speaker blessed this afternoon, Mr.Ravi (?), who is a alumini of Swamys college. He narrated very interesting miracles, one of which is worth mentioning. It so happened in the year 1966, Mr.Ravis father, fell sick and he went to the doctor, the doctor said he has cancer and needs to be operated. He was operated and after few months when he went to the hospital for another checkup the doctor found the cancer was still there and recommended another operation which was performed and after few months, when he went for another round of check up, the same thing happened and he was operated again
and this went on not twice, thrice or 5 times
He was operated 25 times!!!!
After being operated 25 times for the same disease, his body was getting weaker and weaker and Mr.Ravis sister, who was in her final year of her doctor course, went to the doctor to enquire the situation of her father. She was shocked when the doctor said, he will live hardly for a month, you better take him home so that he
can die peacefully amidst you.
Mr.Ravi, who was barely 9 years old was crying to know this and he had lost his mother when he was just 4 years and he would be a orphan in a few days according to the doctor. Mr.Ravis sister was very dull when she went to the college the next day, one of her classmates, who was Swamys devotee asked what was wrong with her and when she said her sad story, she asked her to come for Swamys darshan (Who was in brindavan then). They both went to Swamys darshan and nothing happened.
Later, the sister, told her father about Swamy and she asked him to go for Swamys darshan. Her father, said, I have prayed to all Gods and I dont want a NEW God again (referring to Swamy).
When his father went to the office the next day, his boss said, there is a gentleman from a foreign country, and he wants to see Sai Baba, and you being a Local man (bangalore), pls take him. As it was the bosss command, the father had to oblige and they both went to darshan and it was end of darshan and Swamy was going into His abode by the time they reached there. The father was bit upset and thought, even God has shut the door on his face so saying they sat down in the ashram premises.. Suddenly, in minutes, there
appears Swamy infront of him and says.. YOU HAVE BEEN OPERATED 25 TIMES.. YOUR CANCER HAS BEEN CANCELLED
. This gentle man was stunned and Mr.Ravi went to say that,My father whose days were counted in 1968 went on to live till he was 89 years old and he died due to old age(not due to cancer) and just 2 years ago. His father left his room one monrning saying that he is going to darshan and just when he came down he fell on the ground his head facing the mandir and left his body and in no time there arrived two people with stretcher and ambulance.. It seems the ambulance was brought there to park and Mr.Ravi said an interesting point here.. Swamy take care of our welFARE and also FAREwel
. How true!!!!
This story is so touching and only Swamy can do
that and what we need to have is UNSHAKEN faith
Later it was our beloved Swamys turn to take on the stage
As the discourse tableand mike was brought and as Prof.Anil Kumar was ready taking his position
. Swamy looked at all of us for a minute or so and slightly rose from His seat
as we all joined our hands for Him
the sweet nectarine voice was heard saying
Embodiments of Love,
Students have got lot of education in science and technology and the subjects they are talking is not followed by any one but I appreciate that very much
Chakkera kante teepi sweeter than sugar
Dari saramu kantenu rutyamau tastier than curd
Pempekkina tene kanna ati rutyamu more tastier than honey
Notanu palka palkaga When uttered from your mouth
Amrutha me anipinchunu kana (gives the taste of Divine Nectar)
Manasa. Nityamu Smariyimpumu Rama Namamu (o mind always chat RamasName)
Embodiements of love
There is no village in India without a Ramas temple. You will find at least one Rama devotee in every village. So Ramas name has been contemplated since time unknown. When some one gets up from their seat they say RAMA
so Ramas name is very reputed in India. .not only in India, even in China Ramas name is famous. The whole world is full of Ramas name. We have to have the desire to chant Ramas name.
Dasaratha had no children but had 3 wives. He was hoping to have ateast one son from on of his three wives. While doing penance, God appeared before him and gave him a container consisteing of Payasam (rice pudding) and asked to distribute the same amongst his wives.
Dasaratha distributed the same in equal quantities to three of them. Sage Vasishta blessed them and said may you be blessed with children very soon.
Sumitra was not interested to partake. When Dasaratha married Queen Kaikayee (one of the three wives) he promised her father that the son born to them will be made the king. And Kausalya being the first wife was also entitled to claim her son to be the king. Both the queens had a reason to be confident of their son to be the king except Sumitra.
She was crying with the container next to her and as she was thinking about this a eagle takes aways the container. She immediately runs to Kaikeya and Sumitra and told what happened. And both of them offered a share to Kausalya.
A son was born to Kausalya and the boy had so radiance and charm that Vasishta was mesmirised by the boys charm and named him as Rama
Later on Swamy went on to narrate incidents of Ramayana and how Sita was rescued from the demon king Ravana.
Swamy continued to say that Rama had no doubts what so ever on Sita inspite of her being kidnapped by Ravana and to let the world know her sanctity, He asked her to get into fire and prove her honesty.
India is a landof such noble women.Women would never speak to men on the streets.Its all because of the effect of kaliyuga. One day Arjuna said, I saw one farmer bringing plough from his field to his home. When someone asked why dont you leave them in the field, the farmer replied no..no.. some one may steal it.. Thats the signal to the start of Kaliyuga. The houses were not locked in ancient times. There were no men women conversations on the streets.
There is no sacredness now a days. Only Dharma will protect you. There fore men and women should uphold their Dharma.The mind should be control. Dont have PICHI ALOCHANALU (mad thoughts).
Always think of God when you have bad thoughts. Its only Gods grace that will make you sacred. With these sacred thoughts, you will be a TRUE human being. So keep your hearts with pure and sacred thoughts
So saying Swamy sat on His thorne and sang one of my favourite bhajans,
Rama Rama.. Rama Sita.. Srimadravikula mandu Janinchi
Sita Devini Preethi Varinchi
Premana Ahalya Sapamu Teerchi
Priya Bhaktulanu Rakshinchina Sri Raghu
Rama Rama Rama Sita
Munduga Hanumanthuni Deevinchi
Chendina kinukuto Valini Drunchi
Cherina Vanara Veerulanu Brochina
The whole gathering was resounding with Ramas name
Swamy continued His discourse, Inspite of all the science and technology you can never have peace of mind.. Only Gods name
will confer bliss. So Happiness is union with God..One can experience Happiness only with GOD
Later the students sang a beautiful song Rama Kathanu Vinarayya
from All time Hit Telugu Movie
Tomorrow 2nd October is the last day of the Yagna and at 9:30 am the purna huti (final rituals of the Yagna ) will be conducted at Poorna Chandra Auditorium in the immediate presence of our beloved Swamy..
With Lots and lots of Love....
