Introduction
It is a remarkable feature of festival celebrations in Bhagawan’s presence that they are not confined to any particular religion or deity. They are universal in character emphasizing the underlying unity of all religions and the fundamental message of love and peace. Indeed, Bhagawan had declared in a discourse delivered on the occasion of the First World Conference of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organizations at Mumbai in July 1968: “This is a human form in which every Divine entity, every Divine Principle, that is to say, all Names and Forms ascribed by man to God, are manifest”. Thus, we see today, devotees professing different faiths being drawn to Bhagawan from all over the world, seeing in Him the Name and Form that is most dear to them, and also deriving the bliss of celebrating their religious festivities in His Divine presence. Typically, the programme consists of speeches by students, functionaries of Bhagawan’s Institutions and devotees, where they share their thoughts and recount their experiences and lessons learnt at the Divine Lotus Feet. This is usually followed by Bhagawan’s discourse and cultural programmes. At the conclusion of the programme, Prasadam (sacramental food) is distributed to everyone.
