The long-awaited visit of Bhagawan Baba to the Hassan Campus, was fulfilled when He visited Sri Sathya Sai Sathyaniketanam on August 21, 2018.
Swami was welcomed to the Campus with Vedic procession and Dandiya dance by the students. All the guests, devotees from Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samitis of Belur and Hassan had gathered to receive Him. Everyone proceeded for lunch with Swami and rested for a while.
In the evening, at 5 p.m. Swami went around the hostel block and inaugurated the new room that that will house the sick studemts. The amenities for the room such as cots, beds, pillows, side tables and curtains were purchased and donated to the Campus by the Alumni of Alike. Swami named the room as ‘Arogya Dham’, and then proceeded to the Prayer Hall, Sathya Sadana for Satsang. The session commenced with the chanting of Durga Suktam by students of Grade 7. The Chairman of the Campus Sri K Vasudevan welcomed everyone and addressed the gathering with words filled with love for Bhagawan, and paid his gratitude to Him for blessing the Campus with His visit, yet again.
Thereafter, it was the turn of boys to express their feelings and pour out their hearts for their beloved Mother Sai. One boy said that he cannot offer anything but his life to Swami, for all that Swami is doing for the welfare of the world. When Swami asked the boy as to what He can do with his life, the little one readily replied that Swami can do whatever he wants to with his life. Swami was so pleased hearing this and blessed the boy with a ring!
Following this, the District President of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samiti, Hassan district, Sri Kale Gowda spoke for a few minutes. This was followed by a music performance by students. Sri B N Narasimha Murthy addressed the children about importance of devotion towards God , thereafter. A dance performance and yoga pyramid formations were offered at Swami’s Lotus Feet by the students next.
Swami then spoke to all the children and told them to keep their innocence and goodness by being in Satsang always, even as they grow older. Swami said that the children of these Institutions have given opportunity for the alumni and devotees to serve Swami and to be in His proximity. Swami urged the parents that they should first aspire that their children be good human beings before becoming great personalities. Dinner was served to all, and Bhagawan retired for the night.
Next morning on August 22, 2018, Swami blessed everyone with a farewell Satsang, and three boys delivered short speeches. Swami asked Sri Akhilan, an intern from Sri Sathya Sai Centre for Human Excellence to speak about his experience. Sri B N Narasimha Murthy addressed all the students, and Swami blessed all with His Divine message, before returning to Muddenahalli.
