News Update from Dharmakshetra - May 2017

 


 

 

From Karan Dewan .....

Om Sri Sai Ram!

Today, May 12th 2017, marks the 50th Dharmakshethra Day, the Golden Jubilee Anniversary of Dharmakshethra, Bhagawan's Holy Abode in Mumbai. This is truly a dharmakshethra where the Dharma Swaroopa Himself walked about and performed such momentous and important aspects of His Divine Mission.

It is here that the Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas Program grew...it is here that the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organization began reaching international renown....it is here that Bhagawan called thousands to His Lotus Feet...and it is here that our Sai Krishna taught each of us Arjunas how to fight this battle of life.
 

The Lord is not new to this sacred ground...20,000 years ago, our beloved Bhagawan, as Sri Ramachandra, rested on the hillock on top of which Dharmakshethra rests during his stay in the Dandakaranya forest. Ages later, that Rama of Treta decided to continue His Divine task of Dharma Samsthapana in that very same place already sanctified by His Lotus Feet.

And so it was that on November 3, 1967, Swami laid the foundation for Dharmakshethra, symbolic of the beginning of the new age where Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi, Prema, and Ahimsa reign supreme. As He laid the foundation, He declared that within 6 months time, His abode which would be christened by Him as Sathya Deep, the light of Truth, would be complete, well in time for the First World Conference of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organizations which would be held from May 16-19 1968 in Dharmakshethra, Mumbai.

As with all of His other tasks, His vajra sankalpa is absolute...none can come in the way of that Divine Will of His, no matter how much of a stretch it may sound like initially. And so it was that in 6 months time, Sathya Deep, the holy ground where the Light of Truth Himself would reside, was fully constructed as part of this new ashram, Dharmakshethra. During the inauguration function, Swami casually mentioned to Sri Indulal Shah that Dharmakshethra had been constructed in 108 days. Surprised, Indulal garu did some research, and found to His astonishment that indeed, the construction had taken exactly 108 days! This is the effect of Sai Sankalpa...the power of the Sai Mission which not only Sri Indulal Shah but so many chosen instruments of those days were blessed to participate in.

Since 1968, Dharmakshethra has been the guiding light for all who come under her wing...she has been a loving mother who has sheltered thousands of young hearts, nurturing them with the values, love, and glory of Bhagawan. May this Divine Gift to all of us by Bhagawan continue to shine forth as an oasis, a Heaven on earth, a true field of righteousness where the Golden Age thrives then, now, and forever.

 

On this Dharmakshethra Day, let us renew our promise to lead lives of character, purity, duty, devotion, and discipline, and thereby transform the entire world into a Dharmakshethra, a field where Dharma is forever victorious and where Sri Sathya Sai is instilled to guide the way until the end of time.

Happy Birthday to this holiest of spots in the world!

12th May 2017 was the most blessed day in my life.
 

 

 

Gratitude is beyond measures to have had this incomparable opportunity to offer a 90 min music recital at His lotus feet on such an auspicious occasion. Love and appreciation over poured from everyone present there, and soon after the concert came down Showers of Rain as ANUGRAHA VARSHAM from the heavens above smile emoticon:)

That moment when the revered All India President, Sri Nimish Pandya sir called me the INCARNATION of MEERA , all I had was tears of bliss and gratitude. I owe all these recognition to my Bhagawan.

It was a moment of privilege to perform in front of such an august audience of Bhagawan's true senior devotees like Keki Mistry Sir, Vijay Bhaskar Sir, Nimish Uncle, Ramesh Sir, Snathanam Sir, etc and have all of the audience in musical raptures of bliss. it was an honour to receive abundant words of kind appreciation from people like them.

Also to perform alongside Masterpiece Musicians was a heavenly experience. Sanket Bhaiya, Niranjan Bhaiya, Milind Sir, Harsh Sir and Uttam ji, a huge loving sairam for the wonderful team work with which you made it happen.

Happiness is when you bring people closer to the divinity within each of them and unite them with the Supreme Power and that happened yesterday with His grace!

Thank you to each one of you in the city of Bombay and everywhere else for the love and warmth with which you received My music and myself smile emoticon:)

Dharmakshetra 49th Anniversary Celebrations - 12th May 2017

Beautiful rendition by Kum Abhiram Ajai - playback singer from Kerala. Singing for more than an hour and half, Abhirami was a perfect picture of Bhava Ė Raga Ė Thala, mixing and modulating, raising and balancing with perfect elan. One of the most promising young talent from Godís Own Country, Kerala , her devotional singing today, here, in Dharmaksheta was simply brilliant.

Abhirami Ajaiís melodious voice had the blessings of Bhagawan. While she sang the mercury dropped suddenly and it rained in and around Dharmakshetra. The city recorded pre-monsoon showers, bringing a huge relief from the very hot weather.

She ended her musical performance with Sai Gayatri which was a sheer delight to listen to.

Around 7.20 pm the inauguration of Sri Sathya Sai Chowk took place near Dharmakshetra about 50 metres away by Smt Alka Kerkar, Former Dy Mayor & Sitting Corporator and Standing Committee Member, Shri Ajeet Manyal, General Secretary, BJP, Mumbai, Shri Santosh Kelkar, General Secretary, BJP, Mumbai and Shri Murji Patel, Corporator.
