Sai Kingdom (UK) Grama Seva Group 2010

Thursday 21/10/2010

With the Divine grace and blessing the UK Grama Seva Group arrived safely in London by 12:30. The Group consisted of boys from various parts of the UK. By 16:30 everyone had reached their homes safely. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Bhagawan Baba for this incredible 15 days of spiritual Sadhana through Seva. We have experienced and learnt so much from this Seva activity.
The essential message is that the body is given to us for the service of others (Paropkraya Idam Sariram) and that we should feel grateful for being given the opportunity to serve. When we serve others, it is in reality our own self that we are serving. We should not serve for the sake of show or ego but rather out of compassion to alleviate the suffering of others. The Lord could relieve the suffering of all in an instant but He with His precious grace has given us the opportunity to make our lives worthwhile and to realise the purpose of our lives by doing Seva. Most importantly sacrifice is central to Seva. Jai Sai Ram!

Wednesday 20/10/2010: Morning

Today is 20-10-2010, A very special day for the Avataric mission, as it marks the 70th Anniversary of the Divine Decoration Day. On this day 70 years ago, when Bhagawan Baba was only 14 years old, know to the village of Puttaparthi as Satyanarayan Raju, declared to His family and humanity that He was “Sai Baba”. Swami left this home as “His devotees” were calling him.
Swami did not give Darsan in the morning, a more regular occurrence these days, giving the devotees an opportunity to introspect by going within and celebrating the declaration of Avatarhood.

Sai Kulwant Hall once again witnesses a very large crowd who had gathered to get a glimpse of the Divine Personality who declared His Divinity in 1940. For the UK Grama Seva group, this day brings another important celebration as it was the 5th Anniversary of Heart Valve Bank Charity blessed by Swami on this day. Today was also the day when the UK Grama Seva Group was departing from Prashanti Nilyam to return back to the UK.
Swami glided in His chair at 18:20, to the delight of all present to bless and share His Love to one and all. Swami kindly went past were the UK Grama Seva Boys were sitting, and gave eye contact to all the boys, blessing for their departure. Swami also loving accepted a rose from one of the brothers.
After Swami completed the full round of Darsan, He approached the Veranda, where the UK Grama Seva Group Leader Sri Ajit Popat was blessed with a conversation with Baba. Swami spoke to “Puppet” for some time and gave him hand full of Vibhuti packets for the Boys as Swami’s blessings!
Swami listed to 2-3 Bhajans whilst interacting with a few bhajans boys. During this time, Swami demonstrated his tender Care and Love by asking the students to distribute Laddu Prasadam to all the devotees seated in Sai Kulwant Hall. Swami took Aarti and blessed everyone with both hands raised before headed towards Yajur Mandir just after 19:00.
