Buddha Purnima Morning Programme at Prasanthi Nilayam:

Love and Compassion was the theme of this year's Buddha Purnima Celebrations in Prasanthi Nilayam attended by devotees from Japan , Taiwan , Korea, Hong Kong, Bhutan, Nepal, Thailand, Sri Lanka,  China, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and Indonesia. The programme commenced with Veda Chanting by youth of the participating countries.

Sri Ashok Sakhrani, national coordinator of Sri Sathya Sai Organisations, Hong Kong welcomed the gathering for the Buddha Purnima celebrations. He spoke on the four sublime qualities of the mind that have taught by the Buddha, namely Maitri (Loving Kindness), Karuna (Compassion), Mudita (Sympathetic Joy) and Upeksha (Equanimity). The Chairman of Zone 5 of the Sri Sathya Sai Organisations, Worldwide, Sri Nari Chugani spoke on the similarity between the connection that millions felt towards Lord Buddha and Sri Sathya Sai Baba and their teachings of Peace, Love and Purity.

Dr Sunanda, a Professor from Sri Lanka and a consultant of various United Nations and World Bank Projects, spoke next on his initial confusions on following Baba's path, since he felt he would be deserting Buddhism. However Baba's Love helped him to see the similarity between the teachings of the Great Masters. He mentioned now his spiritual progress accelerated once his Sadhana was suffused with his love for Baba. He also quoted an alumni of Baba's university in Sri Lanka who on questioning what is the Sadhana one has to do, pointed to Baba's photo and said, sing His name and Love Him. That will suffice. The talks were followed by international Bhajans by the devotees.
