Responses to the Cover Story of the January Issue
Loving Sai Ram to H2H team,
I have just finished reading the article titled “Sai Geetha” in the current edition of H2H. Words are in shortage to express my state of bliss. It was a trip around heavens. It was truly an experience of divine Love. As I read through the article it was a continuous stream of tears.
What is that one can pay in return to this ‘bliss – bestowing’ article. I feel greatly indebted to receive this gift of an article from you. It is only Swami’s Sankalpa to bless the multitude of devotees at the beginning of new year that has prompted you to bring out this article in this month’s edition. I hope and wish that millions of devotees all over the world read this article, enjoy the bliss and more importantly, pickup the wonderful message it gives us on “pure love and single minded devotion” that Sai Geetha possesses for Swami.
Sai Ram, Seshagiri Rao, Bangalore.
Sai Ram H2H Team,
I would like to express how I feel but do not have the words to write it, with regards to the article on Sai Geetha. It is so beautifully written and I have read it twice over. It is amazing to know how devoted Sai Geetha is to Swami. Only if we could be a little like her in this day and age and not be so serious about our problems and life. I have learnt from Sai Geetha that I need to improve myself and to be like her and to think of the Lord and love Him the way she does. She has so pure love for Swami. Thank you so much for the cover story on Sai Geetha it has so much value and inner meaning for all.

Dear Sai brothers,
[Dear Gopal Mehta, in the Bhajan tutor we have bhajans which are generally sung in Baba’s presence by His students – H2H Team]
Dearest H2H Team,
Dearest Heart2Heart Team,
Best wishes for 2007!! May the blessings of Our Dear Lord be always with you, may He keep inspiring you all along your way. I really wish to thank you - from my heart - for your wonderful work, and thank you for the careful and loving selection of Baba's most precious pictures and messages for our daily life. These are not only truly inspiring but also sent whenever I needed the most a loving word from our Dearest Lord, a reminder of what should the true service be, loving and selfless action-word-thought-feeling towards all of His creation...
On a daily basis, this is of crucial importance, that we never forget why we are here and why are we doing what we are doing...For all this, my deepest gratitude for your loving work. May the Lord bless your efforts.
Sai Ram, Carola Prochaska
Once I come into office your mail is the first to be read and it gives me a good start for the day. Not withstanding the jealousy and turmoil I have to over come in my working environment, the Thoughts for the Day & the Divine’s Message are reassuring. Thanks for a great job. Hoping to read Bhagavan’s speech and the 2 other speeches delivered on 25.12.06 soonest. I take this opportunity to wish you and your team a Blissful and Blessed 2007.
Sai Ram, Kunalan
Dear Heart to Heart Team,
I would like to thank you BABA to change my life and your wonderful team which provided Sai's instructions. And the content in website is very useful. I felt lucky that I can find Radio Sai website and Swami's teachings as per my purpose. Everyday I read Swami's instructions, I feel like "He talked to me, and I talked to him." It's hard to explain in words. He knew what I think, and gave me some advice which I can adapt in my real life. I am so lucky….Since I read it, my regret and stress has been emitted. I want to say the word "Thank You", and encourage you to continue Sai Inspires e-mail and develop the website. And Thanks again to Baba.
Jai Sai Ram, Jeed
Response to the Sunday Special Article: "Do We Understand What Freedom Really Means” sent on 24 Dec 2006
It was a very nice article and it truly reflects Swami's way of describing freedom. I could put myself in situations described and fully understand how, in various occasions I "exercised" my freedom to only fall victim to the six vices, and felt disempowered than empowered! I agree, True Freedom is an empowering Context, not a Disempowering context.

Response to the Sunday Special Article: "Preserve That Thought" sent on 31 Dec 2006
Om Shri Sairam!
Kudos to Shri Vijay Prasad for so eloquently expressing Swami's message on "Spirituality". Indeed he is very blessed as a student and fully understanding and conveying the concept to all of us remarkably well. Our greetings to him and all the rest of you, the Blessed souls, for a year of wonderful and significant service to humanity. Our humble pranams to Swami.
Cordially, Shanti Chakravarti
Dear Heart2Heart team,
I cannot even express how much this article moved me! God's "love letter" to man - "preserve the thought"! Sometimes it is easy to forget what it really means to be aware of Swami's Divinity - and ours. This article was a powerful and impeccably crafted reminder. Thank you! What a wonderful way to start my Sunday!
Sai Ram, Ellesha Wanigasekera, Toronto , Canada
This Sunday Special is very inspiring, as all the others. The more I walk this spiritual path, the more I "feel" that the answer is Love, and Love alone. Love is the only thing that can make things go towards God. Still I don't know exactly what Love is, but is in me, and is emerging...
Have a divine new year!
Response to the Special Article: “ God, The Avathar and the Doubting Thomases" by Prof G Venkataraman
Loving Sai Ram,
Sai Ram, Arnapurna, Research Scholar, Bombay.
The article written yesterday by Dr. G Venkataraman about setting straight the recent critics of Swami and His Mission was profoundly educative. It is very well written and very well thought out and perhaps is the best explanation to the “questions” raised by mindless critics. I’m an ex-student of Swami living in the US for a long time. I’m so glad that Dr. GV has taken the bull by the horns, so to speak and has given a fitting reply to malicious propaganda. I only wish that the Sathya Sai organizations which are the generally the “first-stop” for any one exploring the Sai path, are as clear and educated about these issues! Thank you and I’ll make it a point to make copies of this great write-up and educate anyone who wishes to get more clarification about baseless stories and propaganda. Thanks once again, for your magnificent service through H2H and Radio Sai.

Dear and Respected Shri Venkataraman,
Sairam. Namaskarams and Greetings from Manila for the New Year and Pongal. I read with keen interest your recent article on “God, the Avatar and the Doubting Thomas.” It is very inspiring, insightful, and provides a balanced, fact based argument. The personal anecdotes in your life were very touching and brought me to tears when I read them. I hope that this article will be widely published by newspapers and magazines for serving the larger good in this world. As suggested, we will share it with our friends and interested persons.
Warm regards, Seetharam
Dear Venkataraman Sir, Sairam,
First of all the article you wrote 'God, The Avathar and The Doubting Thomas' was fantastic. Sometimes people cross their line of decency and behave in a manner which compels other persons to react sharply and not only me but many of the listeners would agree with what you wrote in the article. My heart felt congratulations for writing such meticulous and scientifically written article. When a person of high calibre and credibility writes an article, I think that would be the best reply we can supply to these so called 'journalists'.
I am a 23 year old young man and have faith in the Lord and this would also be same for millions of Sai youth all around the world. Once Sai has touched your life our faith only gets stronger and 'tested' occasionally. But what was heartening was the manner in which you tackled these issue in one of the most brilliantly written pieces of scientific paper on the miracles and God as such.
I am student of science and my kind request to you would to write such articles connecting science and spirituality. Many of the youth are not lucky to have studied in Swami's institutions to get your guidance. Such articles not only give us an opportunity to appreciate the mysteries of nature and admire His creation but also give us an opportunity to admire the work of great physicists like you and pioneers of a bygone era.
Also congratulations for re-vamping the program schedule. I am in US and the only way I can connect with bhajans and spiritual articles is through Radio Sai. So please keep up the great work you and your team is doing.
Sincerely, Sai Santosh, University of Alabama, Birmingham, USA .
Dear Professor Venkataraman,
Thank you very much for the article by Prof .Venkatraman. After I read it, I just wanted to stand up and applaud. I hope this would silence all the doubting Thomases. Swami Vivekananda would say, "Barking dogs make no scars on sparkling stars". All the criticism will only help to deepen the faith of the devotees.
