In a world rampant with ‘dark knights’ of destruction, if man is to seek a ‘safe home’, answer will be a definite ‘S-A-I’. Presenting the this theme of SAI, being the ‘Safest Place’, devotees from Mexico and Central American countries presented a drama entitled ‘Swami Is The Safest Place’ this evening here, in Prasanthi Nilayam.
The presentation, set in the home country, in two distinct stories of two individuals having contrasting feelings towards the Sathya Sai Organizational work, drove home the point that after much of soaring in heights of delusion, through the ‘muddy and murky’, one has to finally perch ‘back’ on the tree of sweet home, GOD, S-A-I.
The presentation portrayed two the contrasting characters, son of an ‘arrogant and intimidating’ father, who never accepted selfless service of his Sai-oriented son, and a rebellious daughter of a pious Sai-devout woman, who, at every instance fought tooth and nail to prove her point right. The son’s noble endeavors were always blocked by his intimidating father, while the mother felt hapless in convincing her girl, who was giving way to delusive outside world.
Life brings greater lessons! Adversity comes at time as a ‘salient’ reminder from the ‘Greater Heaven’, reminding one that he or she should not toe the line.
In the cases of the antagonists, adversity soon struck in both the lives, who, in their trying moments returned to senses to effect a transformation, to know and experience that ‘Sai Is The Safest Place’.
Three Musical Offerings followed next.
The Dominican Republic, Brazil and Azerbaijan
(Kazakhstani people) followed up next, presenting three distinct sessions of devotional offerings, singing their hearts’ content in vernacular.
The Dominicans with a soloist’s ecstatic pursuit of the Divine, with accompaniment, the Brazilians with the collective ‘boisterous’ pursuit in ‘Brazilian’ and finally, the Azerbaijanis with their soothing ‘tranquilizers’ on ‘Allah Sai’ proved a point that Sathya Sai ‘understands’ only one language, the Language Of The Heart. The Azerbaijani women in the regal outfit were a picture of virtuous elegance.
Bhajans continued and the session closed with Mangala Arathi at 1705 hrs.
