Sathya Sai: An ode to my Guru

"Cometh we, in this auspicious hour Sitting embraced in Thy ever-jubilant love Reflecting, reminiscing Thy regal life Or humming humbly Thy hallowed glory In Your merry mellifluous voice, Thee then whisper Awakening us affably to angelic acuity “Auspicious: Isn’t every hour, bangaru? and each moment momentous!” Gather we again, another hour Discussing, dissecting or defining … Continue reading Sathya Sai: An ode to my Guru

The Master, some prayers and an experience!

On this year’s Mahasamadhi day, I wrote how Sathya Sai Baba let me experience different shades of love in a matter of 5 hours. Today, not until I completed the below post, I knew I was writing about the potency of prayer. How He answered all those unfiltered thoughts that rose in my head in … Continue reading The Master, some prayers and an experience!

So what? (an open letter on the insider controversy)

I was watching a science fiction movie the other day called 'The Man from Earth'. The protagonist claims that he has lived for thousands of years, and what happens then is the rest of the story. There is a particular scene where he says that he was called Jesus Christ for a while, when he tried … Continue reading So what? (an open letter on the insider controversy)

Nija Bhaktha Hrdaya Vihari: Sri Sai Natha Deva! (24th April, 2015)

Sonna Vannam seitha perumal (The Lord who did as told)!

For a week now, I was being constantly reminded of a particular story that appa used to narrate to us kids, so animatedly. It's a fabulous story, with stellar poetry. I kept … Continue reading Sonna Vannam seitha perumal (The Lord who did as told)!

Sathya Sai: Agnanam Brahma?

Walking towards Mandir this morning, earlier than 9'0 clock, gave me a rush. It felt like those good old days, when darshan didn't just mean 9'o clock mandir bajans. To be honest, I missed His form today too, but I didn't miss Him like how I did this past Krishnashtami. I could sense Him around, … Continue reading Sathya Sai: Agnanam Brahma?

Of Veda cravings, butterfly effect, and a radio show on ARMY!

I was in my final year when ARMY (Athi Rudra Maha Yagna) happened at Parti. It's a joyous recollection for more than the obvious reason of the yajna itself. When I joined Anantapur, the Saiyan experiences were brand new from an organisational/university perspective. The setback rubbed in, when I didn't know the Prayers/Vedas/the usual Saiyanness, … Continue reading Of Veda cravings, butterfly effect, and a radio show on ARMY!
