Inauguration of Sai Anandashraya – a dedicated accommodation for ladies Nov 16, 2016
The run up to Bhagawan’s Birthday Celebrations are always filed with divine benedictions and announcements. The 91st Birthday Celebrations at Sathya Sai Grama wasn’t any different. With the World Youth Meet slated to commence on the 17th of November, the evening before witnessed Bhagawan inaugurate Sai Anandashraya, a dedicated housing facility for the women delegates.
On the eve of the inauguration, two speakers were blessed to address the gathering of devotees, delegates, staff and students. The first speaker was Sri R K Subramanya, Trustee, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust. He began by thanking Bhagawan for His blessings, without which, he shared, the building couldn’t have come up in a record time of less than two months. He then went on to thank the architect, contractor and other people involved in the construction of the ladies accommodation.
The next speaker was Sri B N Narasimha Murthy, Mentor, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Institutions. He spoke eloquently about the Bhagavad Gita, drawing parallels from it to the Sathya Sai Avatar. He also shared Bhagawan’s grand vision for the entire ashram. Not only will the ladies accommodation get a big facelift in the coming years, the entire precincts of Sathya Sai Grama too would witness great developments, he said. Exhorting the audience to count their blessings, he said that it was only by divine design that everyone was with Bhagawan in this lifetime. He ended his speech, praying to Bhagawan to give His divine Discourse.
Bhagawan then delivered His Divine Discourse.
The evening ended with the offering of Aarathi to Bhagawan.
