"The day when you resolve to practise My advice; to follow my directives, to translate My message into acts of service, and to engage in spiritual discipline-that day is My birthday for you. The 23rd of November which you now honor as the day on which I was born, is only like any other day, even if you celebrate it in a routine, ritual fashion. Adore man: the adoration reaches Me. Neglect man; you neglect Me. Of what avail is it to worship the Lord and to suppress man, His counterpart on earth? Love for God must be manifested as Love for man, and Love must express itself as service.”
 

- BHAGAWAN SRI SATHYA SAI BABA

 


 

Birthday special edition of Samarpan with Sri Vedanarayan - Dharmakshetra, 27th November 2016
 

 

 

The Vedas form the bedrock of spirituality and Bharatiya culture serve as a guidepost to man so that he can lead a wholesome life, both in spiritual and material terms. No wonder, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba declared ‘Vedaposhana’ (fostering the Vedas) as one of His primary tasks in His Divine Mission. In keeping with this, Bhagawan has actively encouraged the study and chanting of the Vedas, and conducted and participated in many Vedic rituals. Bhagawan’s devotees, irrespective of age, gender, economic status, caste, race, religion and nationality have taken to the study and practice of the Vedic teachings in their daily lives, thus demonstrating the universal relevance and appeal of the Vedas. Indeed, the Vedas cannot be limited to any particular denomination of humanity; it is a divine gift and legacy to which every human being is a rightful heir.

 

Brother Vedanarayan has been with Swami since last 5 decades and has been leading Vedam chanting since the beginning.

He is a Sanskrit teacher and an alumnus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning in Brindavan and has been associated with Swami’s educational institutions since 1976.

In 1981, after securing his Bachelors degree in Science from Swami‘s College, on Bhagawan's instructions. he completed his Masters in Philosophy from Bangalore University and secured First rank Gold Medal. Later he went on to do his Masters in Sanskrit from Mysore University and secured a rank in there as welL

In the year 2004, he received the National Award for Best Teachers', from the then President of India. Dr. APJ. Abdul Kalam.

He has traveled across the globe giving lectures in more than 15 countries. He also happens to be from the first batch of Balvikas students

Today at Dharmakshetra, Brother Vedanaraynan shared his wonderful experience as to how Bhagawan gave him the second lease of life when he was seriously ill and how the doctors lost hope & told he would survive for few hours. Indeed he connected all of us to our Lord with the vivacious narration.

The video of his entire talk will be release soon....

Global Akhanda Bhajan at Dharmakshetra - 12th November 2016

 

 



As part of the 91st Birthday celebrations of Bhagawan Baba, Bhajans (devotional singing) are conducted continuously for 24 hours at all Sathya Sai Centres on a global level praying for peace, harmony and bliss to all mankind.

The significance of community singing is immense, according to Baba. It is the easiest way to reach God in the present age. Speaking on the efficacy of Bhajans, Baba says, "The spiritual vibrations produced by Bhajans confer great joy both on those who sing them and on those who hear the songs. Bhajans remove all negative thoughts, soothe the nerves, purify the mind and fill the body and the heart with sweet love for the divine. As one sings Bhajans, the mind is saturated with God Consciousness and a great ecstasy wells up from within. No mental or intellectual effort is called for, as there is no need to understand anything while uttering the holy names of God and singing His glory. The singing and the atmosphere created by Bhajans takes one beyond the realms of the body, mind and intellect and helps to establish communion with the Higher Self (consciousness) within.

Today the entire atmosphere at Shanti Deep, Dharmakshetra was soaked in "Divine Vibrations". It was a lively and enthusiastic bhajan session. There was also one hour veda chanting by the devotees before the commencement of the Akhanda Bhajan.
