After heavy showers of rain in the night, a refreshing coolness hung in the air as everyone rose early, ready to depart after a magical and momentous eight days in the presence of the Almighty. A final breakfast awaited everyone at 7 a.m. and soon after, everyone gathered in the living room of Swami’s bungalow as He glided down from His room. Swami lovingly went around giving pens to each and every person seated there, and distributed white clothes to all the students. Thereafter, He commanded young Sai Mukunda to give a speech as he had prepared earlier. He expressed his deep gratitude to Swami on behalf of all the devotees for allowing all to be with Him in Kodaikanal.
Swami then spoke about Sai Mukunda who had such a deep desire to study in Swami’s Institution, that he had requested a Transfer Certificate from his head teacher while he was still in Grade Four! Swami showered His love and compassion on him and now he has joined Swami’s institutions in Grade Six.
Thereafter, Mangala Arati was offered to Swami and in all His mercy and infinite love, He proceeded to the lawns to complete the photo session with all those who had missed the opportunity the previous day due to the rain. Once every person had been blessed with a photo with the Lord, Swami made His way to His car and departed as everyone lined the road to bid adieu to their Divine Master. On the way to Madurai Airport, Swami passed by Dindigul to bless His team who are going to commence the construction of Sri Sathya Sai Meenakshinikethanam Girls Campus. He partook His lunch with them at their newly built home ‘Sai Prema’, and blessing all profusely, Swami departed to Muddenahalli.
