The greatest property of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is His students and so, He is ready to do anything for His dear students. The Campus visits in the month of March was a testimony for the love the Lord has for His students. The Divine journey commenced from Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli on the morning of March 09, 2020 and ended on March 13, 2020 – covering seven campuses in six districts, blessing hundreds of children, guiding them personally and installing confidence in them to write their exams without any fear or confusion.
Bhagawan’s chopper took off from Muddenahalli around 07:40 AM. along with His guests Dr Atul Patel and his wife Smt Darshana Patel. The newly established campus in Shivamogga – Sri Sathya Sai Sarvaniketanam was the first destination. Upon arrival, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai was welcomed with Poorna Kumbham and Vedic Chants amidst the Jai Kar by the tiny tots of Bhagawan. The Lord then proceeded towards the hostel area, keenly watching and observing the hostel rooms, dining area, kitchen and expressed his happiness about the arrangements and also gave His valuable suggestions. After a short refreshment, He proceeded towards the Bhoomi Pooja site for upcoming school building.
Bhagawan then conducted the Bhoomi Puja for the new school building and shared His idea about the building and its construction. Though the campus started ten months back, the children had picked up Vedam very fast and chanted it with utmost devotion and clarity. Bhagawan who was happy hearing his children chant Vedam with utmost perfection, made them chant all the Veda Mantras they had learnt and blessed them with His loving words and Vibhuti. After Bhoomi Pooja, He made His way towards the prayer hall for a short Satsang with His children, staff and devotees.
The programme started with Vedic Invocation by the students who chanted Durva Suktam. This was followed by welcome address by Sri Surendra, Chairman of the campus, who conveyed his gratitude to Bhagawan for blessing the campus with His Divine presence for the first time after the commencement of the institution. He then welcomed all the guests who had travelled with Bhagawan and all the devotees who had gathered for the Divine Darshan.
Thereafter, Master Bharath of Grade 6 shared his journey to Bhagawan and his story of transformation. He narrated how Bhagawan had kept up His word that He had given during His Birthday celebration of visiting the campus.
Next was the talk by Sri B N Narashimha Murthy who shared the story of the campus and the challenges it had gone through and how Divine grace cleared all obstacles.
Quoting a Kannada poem, Bhagawan blessed all with His Divine Message. He explained in detail about the relationship between ‘Him and His Students’. He also expressed His happiness on the way the students are growing in the way He expects despite minimum resources and arrangements. He also expressed his future plans for the campus and announced that He will also start a Pre-University College in the future.
Mangala Arati was offered after which Bhagawan blessed the contractors and labourers with tokens of love and distributed Prasadam to all the students and staff. Around 11:30 AM, the Lord took off from Shivamogga Campus to Karwar Campus.
