On the occasion of the 4th edition of SAMARPAN session on 12th July, 2015, Prof. Anil Kumar shared his wonderful experiences with His Divine Master, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba at Shanti Deep, Dharmakshetra.

Satsangh with Prof Anil Kumar - Jain Mandir Hall (Mulund) - 11th July, 2015

Professor Anil Kumar Kamaraju from Prasanthi Nilayam hardly needs any introduction Bhagawan Baba, bestowed upon him the unique opportunity to render live translations of His Divine Discourses in Telugu into English. And this sacred but difficult duty, Professor Anil Kumar performed with great devotion, humility, enthusiasm, concentration and clarity.

Hailing from State of Andhra Pradesh, Professor Anil Kumar was educated in the famous Andhra University and worked as a Professor of Botany in Andhra Christian College in Guntur. He belongs to a very scholarly family who were staunch followers of Brahmo Samaj, a progressive thinking reformist movement in India and known for its worship of the Brahman as the Formless. However in early 1970s, Bhagawan Baba entered his life through the faith and devotion of his wife, Srimati Vijaya Lakshmi. After some initial hesitation and scepticism, Professor Anil Kumar soon found convergence of his Brahmo Samaj ideas with those of Bhagawan’s teachings: Only, Bhagawan’s explanations were clearer, fresher, interesting, inspiring, gave great joy and solace.

He never looked back after this, and with his trademark enthusiasm and in his inimitable style plunged into the Divine Sai Mission. He studied and digested Bhagawan’s Discourses with great dedication, and toured many places to interact with fellow devotees and spread the Divine Sai Message. He has endeared himself to students, staff, devotees and others, and above all to our dearest Lord Sai!

His ability to make the Divine Lord laugh with him! Swami enjoyed his sense of humour and Himself participated in the mirth at times.

Prof entertained the very creator of the universe with wit and humour, whilst all the time he relaying to us His divine message. We are indeed fortunate to have him amidst all of us and sharing his unique experiences, deep understanding and love of our dear Bhagawan and His teachings................

The programme began with the Vedic Chanting by the Balvikas children followed by bhajans

For over one and half hours Prof Anil Kumar narrated his personal experiences with Swami to devotees who assembled at Jain Mandir Hall (Mulund) on 11th July, 2015. Being very popular with the Sai Devotees, Prof Anil Kumar kept them smiling throughout with his light-hearted talk and good sense of humour.
