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.

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

24th of April every year will have an iconic significance in each Saiyan's life. Few of us might celebrate the day, few others might reminisce, and few others might even be choked and teary eyed.

Of anger, emotions and how world problems are a learning!

Sathya Sai Baba’s birthday!

In C's Thursday Live Show he had asked - What Swami's birthday means to several devotees. Questions like this, and "What Sai Baba means to us?" would either let us (followers of Baba) say a 1000 things, or none at all, for didn't the hymns eventually came up to say: 'Nethi! Nethi' to describe that inexhaustible … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s birthday!
