Sri Sathya Sai Vrindawith Love, at His service

Divine Visit – Biarritz, France – April 28, 2017

After Mangala Arati, Bhagawan’s entourage proceeded to the Zagreb Airport to board their flight to Biarritz, a very popular tourist destination in South West France. The organisers had suggested many places to Swami, but for reasons only known to Him, this pretty Basque town by the coast was chosen. Living with Swami teaches everyone many valuable lessons. Trust His words and ‘going with the flow as He has willed’ is one of the paramount lessons. Due to the change of aircraft in Paris, and a four hour delay at Zagreb, there was a certain amount of anxiety regarding the possibility of making it to the boarding terminal for the internal flight to Biarritz at Charles de Gaulle Paris, which was almost at a distance of 30 minutes by shuttle! And ofcourse, all the bags had to be transferred from one end to the other end by the airport authorities. In spite of all the delay, and uncertainty, and last minute running, not only was the connecting flight delayed slightly, by Divine plan, but all the bags reached just in time, and Bhagawan’s entourage were promptly on their way to Biarritz!

As they landed, the entire Camblong family, Swami’s hosts in Biarritz, with Ms Edith Vuillon, one of the main organisers for this Divine trip to France, along with a few other devotees welcomed everyone with love, warmth and cheer. The Camblong family have been ardent devotees of Bhagawan for many decades, and had invited the Lord to their residence almost a year ago.

Since it was very late, everyone retired after dinner, which was very lovingly cooked by a Sri Lankan couple, who had driven all the way from Paris with their two sons, along with all the pots, pans,  ingredients and vegetables, to cook for their beloved Lord! It is always very endearing to see the devotion to their Master, when He is not even visible to the naked eyes. Indeed blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed!
