National Pilgrimage 2012

National News

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Om Sri Sai Ram!

It gives me great pleasure in announcing the National Pilgrimage 2012 to Prasanthi Nilayam, the abode of great peace and tranquility.

The Avatar of the Age, our Divine Loving Master Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, chose this hallowed place not only as his birthplace, but also as the spiritual epicentre for unfolding His Divine Mission. It is now also the most holy place where the divine physical form rests permanently to provide solace and blessings to the millions of devotees of the present and future generations.

When one looks around Prasanthi Nilayam, at the grandeur of His hospitals, His institutions, areas of worship such as the Kulwant Hall and the Mandir, one invariably experiences and feels the vastness of His Sankalpa, His Divine Will. When walking around, we are filled with the thrilling memories of His attributes, His Leelas (Divine acts) and His Mahimas (Glories). Our spiritual hearts expand instantly and experience the blissful love of God; our spiritual batteries are recharged and we feel refreshed by the ineffable peace that wells within us and envelops us. Indeed Prasanthi Nilayam has become our spiritual birthplace! His stirring words that reveal His Reality serve as constant reminders of our good fortune-

"This is a human form in which every divine entity, every divine principle, that is to say, all the names and forms ascribed by man to God, are manifest. Do not allow doubt to distract you; if you only install, in the altar of your heart, steady faith in My Divinity, you can win a vision of My Reality. Instead, if you swing like a pendulum of a clock, one moment devotion, another moment disbelief, you can never succeed in comprehending the truth and win that bliss. You are very fortunate that you have a chance to experience the bliss of the vision of the Sarvadaivathwa Swaroopam (the form that is all forms of the Gods) now, in this life itself."

~ 17 May 1968 (Sathya Sai Speaks VI, 210-213)

As devotees, let us rejoice together and congratulate each other that we were blessed with the most precious and rare privilege: That of being His contemporaries.

Let us resolve to offer our loving homage by treading the path shown by Him, and persisting in our Sadhana to redeem our lives. Let us all join in this Pilgrimage to express our love, devotion and gratitude to Him.

Dates: "Sai Jyothi" UK Pilgrimage to take place 7th - 27th October 2012.
