Sahasra Poorna Chandra Darshana Santhi Mahotsavam

Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's 83rd Birthday Celebration


Greetings Dear listeners,

Here is an important announcement.

It is an ancient indian tradition going back to Vedic times, that when a person has lived through a thousand full moons, his children honour the person through appropriate and time-honoured ceremonies, that express gratitude to the Lord for blessing their elder with a long and glorious life.

What does one do, when the blessed Lord Himself, who created not only the entire universe but also all of us, comes in human form and enters the 83rd year of his advent, completing 1000 appearances of the full moon, a moon that He has Himself created? That landmark event would occur this November, when our beloved Swami enters the 83rd year of His advent.

Clearly something very special and unique is called for, since we are dealing with the Lord Himself. Recognising this, devotees of our beloved Swami are planning to celebrate this unique event in a grand manner by conducting a special function lasting many days.

This sacred program, would not only give expression to our adoration for Bhagavan but also offer special prayers for the well-being of entire humanity and for world peace.

The program would commence on the morning of Saturday, the 15th of November, 2008 and culminate on Monday, the 17th of November with Poorna Ahuti. Vedic scholars from all over India would be participating in the ceremonies.

As a prelude to all this, talks on the sacred Srimad Bhagavatham, the comprehensive story of the Lord as recorded in ancient scriptures, would be delivered every day for one full week, starting from 10th November.

Dear devotees, this is not only a once-in-a-lifetime occasion for all of us, but indeed for this entire Kali Yuga.

When else would we get the chance to witness such a unique and landmark event, and celebrate divine glory in the divine presence, expressing our limitless gratitude to the Lord and praying to Him directly for peace and harmony in a world that so badly needs them?

Start planning your trip now. Make sure you are here during this momentous event, have Bhagavan’s darshan, receive His blessings, and share in the limitless joy of the occasion.

Formal announcements concerning this function are already up in the official website of the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation but even so we here in radio sai thought we would bring the news about this momentous event directly to you and in person via the radio.

Please bring all this to the attention of those who might not yet be aware of this function.
