and Greetings from Prashanti Nilayam.
in Prashanti Nilayam. Hot and dry, what with Swami not being
here. There are only memories. Just as these words are being
written, there is a big refreshing shower and lots of good
memories flash in our minds. Memories of those beautiful darshans;
memories of all the beautiful gifts that Swami was bestowing
on us all through the year; all the miracles that we have
seen and the selfless love we have enjoyed.
with awe and devotion we watch Swami when He materializes
gifts - a big diamond ring for one, a beautiful emerald for
the other or an out-of-the-world sweet dish for the third
one. But the most amazing gift that Swami has bestowed on
some chosen few is the 'Gift of Life' itself. And in this
issue's cover story we bring you this most astounding facet
of the extraordinary power that Sai is - the power
to bring back people from death.
it's nothing new. It has happened with all incarnations-be
it Rama, Krishna, Jesus or Buddha. But why does God enact
such eye-opening dramas from time to time? Why does He do
it for some and not for others? Why does he not do it always?
What is He trying to convey through these mind-boggling instances?
We have shared some of our thoughts in the cover story and
also given space to some very convincing explanations given
by Mr. Howard Murphet. But still there is surely much more
to it. Please feel free to share your thoughts with us on
this and related topics at [email protected].
lives are in fact, His gifts, meant not for ourselves but
for others just as He is for all of us. We are to be born
again and again till we realize that we are here to bring
smiles on the faces of others, to be His instruments of service
and derive bliss there from. When you read Mr. Charles Penn's
inspiring article in 'Window to Sai Seva' Column,
you will know a lot more about this.
from this, you will find two spiritually elevating articles
in the 'Feature Articles' section and some soul-stirring
stories in the miscellaneous section. Do not miss the 'Prashanthi
Diary', there are some lovely images of Swami's recent Kodai
visit. As you see these, imagine yourself sitting in the darshan
line and basking in the Love, Grace and Beauty of His beautiful
form in the cool picturesque background of the Kodai hills.
It is truly magical.
we leave you to explore this month's issue, just one happy
news: The number of subscriptions for H2H and Radio Sai updates
has reached a little over a thousand now and is still growing.
It surely would not have been possible without your continued
us live every moment in Sai,
