AKHANDA BHAJAN STARTS IN PUTTAPARTHI
( The New Indoor Stadium)
11th November, 2006
Om sairam to dear Sai family,
Greetings to all. The atmosphere in Puttaparthi is looking serene and blissful as usual. There are so many things happening in Puttaparthi as part of 81st birthday celebrations and the talk of the town is the new indoor stadium and as a result of which Swamy is giving street darshans almost every day. The stadium is coming out beautifully under the Personal Divine Supervision, Every day, Swamy is giving suggestions, instructions to the engineers who are amused by Swamy's indepth knowledge even in construction. This morning I was speaking to one of the engineers and he expressed happiness and also surprise of Swamy's frequent visits which were full of Constructive instructions.
This stadium with an estimated cost of 11 crore rupees, was initially planned as a 122 days project finished its deadline a week ago and the workers are working day in and day out to meet the latest deadline November 22, the day when this stadium would be dedicated to the Sathya Institute Of Higher Learning, another flower in the garland of the institute, by Swamy, which will also be presided by the President of India, His excellency, Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam and chief ministers for 4 states..
Security arrangements for the VIPs visits has been beefed up.
Another happy news is the Puttaparthi police have banned selling chicken around 9kms in and around this Holy land to maintain its sanctity. Hopefully the authorities will also take a look at the roof top restaurants (right across the ashram) which are running against the interests of Puttaparthi culture where there is unnecessary socialisation and gossip spot
This afternoon there were many
people in the ashram premises on the occasion of Akhanda bhajan. Hoping to
be awake the whole night, I went to my friend's house for a afternoon nap.
In the sleep, Swamy appeared in my dream the car was near the bus station
premises, and there was no body around the car and I saw Swamy helping
Himself for the seat to come out. I run to the car and before I could see
what happened next, I am awake.I could hear Swamy saying, come to darshan
immediately to see what happened next. Immediately I ran towards Ganesh Gate
and there I see big crowd on either side of the road, waiting for Swamy. Not
knowing what happened I asked a cop, is Swamy coming or going (to the
stadium)and he said, Swamy iscoming from the stadium. Immediately I ran
towards the stadium as it's a nice spot where the crowd is comaparatively
Each person got a pant piece and the
ladies got sarees and prasadam. Before I went in I was told Swamy
materialized a ring and a chain to two people (labourers) and thus the loud
applauds. All of us were very joyfull and after about 40 mins stay Swamy's
car slowly moved out just passed me and Swamy gave a sweet smile as soon as
the car passed by?. I over take the car and found another good spot, ready
for Swamy with joined hands.. This time Swamy looks into my eyes.. just a
glance made me feel He is scanned my past, present and future.. and who else
can know all these other than our beloved Sai Ma? The car was moving very
slowly as it was still in the stadium premises, the car was approaching the
gate and Swamy bents a bit down to have a clear view of Sai Geetha's new
house..and says something to the driver (brother Sathyajit). He was visibly
happy with the building.
( Sai Geeta new house )
Exactly at 6pm the Akhanda Bhajan started and Swamy was in Kulwanth hall till 7pm after which He retired to His abode.
With Humble Pranams at the lotus Feet of our beloved Sai Ma, I conclude this email.
Tere charanomein Sai Mere Koti
