CELEBRACIÓN DE BUDDHA PURNIMA 2013 EN PRASHANTI NILAYAM



BUDDHA POORNIMA CELEBRATIONS-NEPAL SINGAPORE PROGRAMME
Prashantinilayam,26th May 2013

Two thematic drama presentations by Nepal and Singapore marked the second and final evening of the Buddha Purnima Celebrations-2013 in Prasanthi Nilayam here today.
After yesterday’s beautiful drama by the Thai devotees, depicting the malicious vices that affect the man of today, this evening, it was the turn of Nepal and Singapore to come out with two beautiful drama presentations, highlighting the teachings of Buddha and Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.
The programme commenced at 0520 hrs. with a Kauda Dance presentation by Nepalese children. This dance form, with Love as its underlying theme,  belongs to the Magar ethnic communities of the mountainous  regions of the Himalayan Kingdom.
Next to come was a small dance drama depicting the illustrious life of Chandalika, of Buddha’s time. Woven around the theme of untouchability and social discrimination, the story ended with Chandalika’s complete transformation and surrender at the Feet of Lord Buddha.
Chandalika lived with her mother. One day, as she was returning from the well carrying a potful of water, a handsome monk approached her asking for drinking water. Owing to ‘untouchability’ prevailing in the society, she hesitated for a while, before yielding to the monk’s relentless request. Later when she came to know of the monk’s identity, as Bikshu Ananda, the famous disciple of Lord Buddha, she became transfixed by his beauty and fell in love with him. When her mother brought the monk home one day, enamoured by infatuation she danced to attract the Bikshu. Bikshu remained nonplussed.  Later Chandalika took refuge at Ananda’s ashram to become a monk. Following the tradition, she went back home seeking alms from mother. Shocked and dumbfounded, the mother wailed before giving alms. Even as Chandalika left the ashram, mother remained grief-stricken, crying in agony of separation.
A Sherpa Dance by the Nepalese children followed next. This dance originated from the Northern Himalayan Region and is a common item during festivities and ceremonies of the Sherpas of the region.
As the title suggests, ‘All Are One, Be Alike To Everyone’, was the depiction of  Baba Buddha’s message of seeing everyone with the same eye as God dwells in everyone. The drama was presented in a comic style, airing the great good message of Buddha and Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.
Showcasing the protagonist, Dr Ji, who is overambitious, devoid of any values, the drama serves as a silent reminder to the modern men afflicted with greed and passion to relent from evil and unhealthy practices, to turn to join hands in serving the society.
Dr Ji was highly ambitious and to fulfil his dreams nothing ever mattered or stopped him; he was into cheating while practising his medical profession. Serving reminders to save him, Lord Narada appears with sage wisdom to the erring medico. Blinded by his greed, Dr Ji paid no heed to the sage’s wisdom.
Even as he fails and continues with his unhealthy practices, Narada with his celestial powers, brings  his mother back from the heavens to enlighten her son of the need to lead a rightful life, rendering service to the society. The son who meet his mother for the first time offers her with all the luxuries; the mother in turn seeks three ornaments, a primary school and a hospital for the underdeveloped locality apart from asking him to get into serving the society.
Dr Ji, the young, ambitious and ‘blinded’ son was not ready to budge. Here he cited reasons of lack of money to get into mother’s dream projects, as according to him, it would cost ‘a fortune’.
Narada was left with no option than to use his final weapon. Now comes the final guest from the ‘heavens’, messenger of Lord Yama. After initial round of ridiculing and teasing, Dr Ji was convinced that his life was on the peril and he had no time left to redeem himself. At this point , when he was left with no hope of survival, he turned to prayer mode, falling on his knees. Responding to his sincere prayers, Buddha appeared with sage wisdom, advising him to correct his vision as – All Are One and thus Be Alike To Everyone was Buddha’s advice. Buddha redeemed him with extended life as Dr Ji was a transformed man, having leant his lesson the hard way.
The presentation had an interlude scene, wherein Lord Buddha comes to save the life of a goat, that was to be sacrificed by the ill-affected men, in the name of liberation. The scene ended with the message of Samastha Jeevah Sukhino Bhavantu, as preached and practised by Baba.
The drama ended with a dance to the tune of the famous songMaula…Maula…depicting various service activities being done under the auspices and guidance of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.



All the participants were presented with special gifts and prasadam was distributed to the entire assemblage.


Bhajans by students continued and ended with Sunday Special, Love Is My Form…in Baba's Divine Voice.
Mangala Arathi was offered at 1900 hrs. marking the end of the session.

DEVOCIÓN DE UN SACERDOTE INDÚ POR SAI BABA

Una hazaña Devocional sin precedentes
Sábado, 18 de Mayo de 2013

Hemos escuchado las historias de los antiguos Rishis y Santos que llevan a cabo rigurosas penitencias por un número de años, de pie sobre una pierna rodeado de fuego ardiente o colgado boca abajo de la rama de un árbol en el bosque salvaje, invocando la gracia de Dios y tener Su visión . Para el hombre moderno, estos logros se mantienen sólo en fábulas y cuentos.

An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Devidas, de 36 años de edad, sacerdote del templo por la ocupación del distrito Amaravathi de Maharashtra, tiene algo similar con estas hazañas de vejez que se atrevió a "un caminar diferente, dificultades en el terreno", para llegar a su destino, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Prashanti Nilayam, Puttaparthi.
An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Él tenía un voto, un voto para Dios, llegar a Puttaparthi como "Devoto Rodando" para tener su Santo Darshan en el Sanctum Sanctorum.

Ubicado en su arduo viaje, el 7 de diciembre de 2012 Devidas acompañado por sus familiares y algunos amigos cercanos llegaron a los recintos sagrados esta mañana. Mientras rodaba a las 9.20 hrs. todo Puttaparthi estaba emocionado, dio la bienvenida al gran devoto. En la puerta, fue recibido por el personal de seguridad, que lo llevo al Mandir, mucho antes de Mangala Ararthi.
An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Durante su Yatra Rodando que abarca más de 5 meses, ha cubierto una distancia de 1.727 kms, rodando todo el tiempo. En promedio cubrió 10 kilómetros al día, haciéndolo en dos turnos, en la mañana de 6 am hasta las 10 am y por la tarde de 4:00 hasta las 7:00. Fue seguido por un grupo de allegados, que, o bien caminaba con él se sentaba en el improvisado pequeño 'carro', adornado por hermosos retratos de Bhagavan, también dispone de un sistema de megafonía sonando Bhajans.
An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Piedra que rueda no cría moho, dicen. Pero en este caso, cientos de curiosos y devotos se reunieron en torno a este 'devoto rodando con las manos juntas, en señal de reverencia y admiración, en todas las aldeas, pueblos y ciudades, en ruta a Puttaparthi.
An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Antes, "el devoto que rueda" llego al campamento base 'al final, de los tres kilómetros de distancia, la noche anterior. Esta mañana, cuando comenzó su última vuelta, como la noticia se extendió por todas partes, Puttaparthi estaba listo para ser testigo de la hazaña única. Curiosamente, esta es la peregrinación del soltero Devidas a Puttaparthi, aunque ha sido un devoto de Bhagavan durante más de una década.
An Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Para el devoto que rueda, un primer contador de lograr tal hazaña, aunque sin fanfarria o publicidad, fue el darshan de Su Señor, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai, que era a todo lo largo en su mente, y él estaba demasiado decidido a lograrlo, a pesar de los embates del verano y otras penalidades.
An   Unprecedented Devotional Feat
Fue un sueño hecho realidad para este inocente sacerdote del barrio Amaravathi de Maharashtra ... Y para los espectadores, que resultó ser una historia inspiradora de fe inquebrantable y devoción ... La fe, dicen, mueve montañas! Devidas lo demostró, ganando una ardua batalla, sin ni un solo rasguño en su cuerpo, ganando finalmente su destino para su "Soñado Darshan" en Prashanti Nilayam.
Sí, tenía un voto, un voto para Dios ... y ¿Quién más podría haber ayudado a cumplir su promesa ... Ascender al 'soñado darshans ' que tenía en ruta dar testimonio al hecho de que Él es el hacedor, Quién lleva a sus devotos a lo largo ...!!!
II Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu II
