The Diwali Special and the 31st edition of SAMARPAN session was held on 22nd October, 2017 and Dr. T. Ravikumar kept the audience spell bound for almost 2 hours.

Having been in Swami's close proximity for more than four decades, even 2 hours of his talk at Dharmakshetra was not enough to cover all his clsoe experiences with Bhagawan.

Dr. T. Ravikumar is presently the Hostel Warden of Brindavan Campus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning.

He has achieved a rare distinction of being Swami's student in Brindavan since its formative years. He was handpicked by Bhagawan as a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry, Brindavan Campus immediately thereafter.

The video of his talk will be released soon.

Swachate Se Divyata

Praana Shudhi: Immediately upon waking up in the morning and just before sleeping at night, sit up erect in the bed and breath in gently from the left nostril and breath out gently through the right (keeping the other nostril closed by pressing your finger against it). Then breathe in through the right nostril and breathe out through the left. Three such cycles need to be done.

Mana Shudhi: Immediately after the above, sit up with an erect spine and just observe the normal flow of the breath for three minutes. Keep the eyes closed gently and do not concentrate them at any spot. The same routine is to be followed at night time also.

Deha Shudhi: To protect yourself from sore throat, cold and cough, gently brush your tongue after having brushed your teeth. Thereafter, gargle three times and then rinse your mouth. Rinse and gargle your mouth each time you eat or drink something. Brushing the tongue results in harmful bacteria being removed thus reducing the chance of infections like sore throat, colds, coughs.

Deha Shudhi: Wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds before & after eating anything. Do not touch your face with unwashed hands. This will protect the eyes from infections like conjunctivitis and also protect you from cold, coughs etc. which result from touching contaminated surfaces and then touching your face with them.

Pariyavaran Shudhi: We are very closely related to trees - what the plants breath out we breath in and what we breath out the plants breath in. To protect our planet, each of us must get one sapling, name it and nurture it. The sapling can be kept at home till it matures and it is safe to plant it in any suitable place outside.
