Bhagawan’s visits to the Educational Campuses add so much value to the very purpose of those living there as students and staff, in this magnificent setting of a cosmic drama, acting the roles of disciples and preceptors, all treading the path of transformation and spiritual realization.
One such visit to Sri Sathya Sai Prashantiniketanam Girls PU College was willed by the Divine on February 17, 2018. Bhagawan arrived at the Campus at around 10:30 a.m and He was welcomed by Vedic procession. He first went into His room, rested for a while and spoke to the guests.
Later, Bhagawan blessed the Brass band room, Computer lab, Library, Physics lab, Biology lab, Class rooms and Kitchen. Thereafter, Bhagawan went to the Prayer Hall where the programme was conducted. Programme started with Vedic invocation by students. They chanted Devi Suktam.
Soon after this, a welcome speech was delivered by Dr. Alamelu Ramasamy, the Director of Sri Sathya Sai Centre for Human Excellence. This was followed by soulful rendition of devotional songs by the music group, at Bhagawan’s lotus feet. There were two student speakers on that day. The first speaker was Divyashree G M , II PU who shared with everyone about the way in which Bhagawan intervened in her life to change her parents’ mind and took her to His fold. This was followed by another speech by Javali Battu- I year B.A., who thanked Bhagawan heart fully for blessing her with a wonderful family in which everybody lives only for Him. Later, He commanded Mr. Kishan Singhal from Canada to address. He expressed his happiness about the Campus and children.
Soon after the speeches, Bhagawan blessed the students with His Divine Discourse. He spoke about His love for the students and their love for Him. He expressed that the Campus exudes love for God and in turn receives immeasurable love from God. Bhagawan exhorted that if students face a situation where they have to choose between God and anything of the world, they should always choose only God, because when God is with them everything else comes on its own. He quoted the examples of Bharata, Vibhishana, Meera and Bali Chakravarthy who prioritised God leaving other things behind. Bhagawan also mentioned that He would be starting a PU College at Jayapura for girls, so that parents of children in that region need not send their children too far. He also said that, He would take all the Prashantiniketanam girls to Jayapura campus for the PU college inauguration in the month of June. He concluded His discourse by telling that He was very happy to see all the students and staff developing love for each other and for God.
Bhagawan commanded to prepare the Prayer Hall for lunch. In the meantime, He visited the Chemistry lab as well. He had lunch along with the guests, students and staff and distributed ice creams to all.
Before departure to Muddenahalli, Mangala Arati was offered to Bhagawan. Thus, ended the Divine visit to Sri Sathya Sai Prashantiniketanam – An abode of supreme peace.
