Sai Kingdom (UK) Grama Seva Group 2010

Saturday 09/10/2010: Morning

On this holy and auspicious day of Sanivar (Saturday), Hanuman is worshipped for his devotion to Lord Rama during the battle that took place in the Ramayana. Hanuman is known for his seva to Lord Rama with his army of monkeys. Today in Prasanthi Nilayam an army of students in higher education left the Abode of Highest Peace to carry out Grama Seva, which is Rama Seva.
The UK group were also given the opportunity to take part in this great service project to carry Swami’s love to the villages in the form of food (annam), laddus, saris and dhotis. The UK group served in a village called Pamdurti, which is located in the Bukkapatnam Mandal, and is a 45 minute drive from Prasanthi Nilayam. The village had a population of almost 1,000 homes.
The villagers had already cleared the streets with water and decorated the door steps with rangoli to welcome Swami’s army of students. The group commenced the proceedings by chanting Vedam as they processed from the centre of the village to one of the Mandirs in the village, where Aarti was then offered to Swami.
The seva activities took almost two hours to complete. The group then moved onto another neighbouring village called Arunagiri. The team returned to Prasanthi Nilayam with loud cheering of ‘Jai Bolo Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Babaji Ki! Jai!’
