|That scintillating smile, those endearing eyes, that enchanting gait, those
beckoning fingers, those wonderful memories, sighed the students. On the
anniversary of His final public Darshan, thus far…, the students of the the
Brindavan campus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of
Higher Learning conveyed their gratitude to their Mother Sai through talks,
dances and songs.
Starting the programme with the invocation of Lord Ganesha with ‘Vakrathunda
Mahakaya…’, the passing out batch of Under Graduate students from Brindavan
christened ‘Vajras’ (Diamonds) went on to sing many memorable songs including
‘Kanula Mundara’, ‘Pyare… Sai… Hamare’, ‘What can I do but thank You’ and ‘
Premaku Rupama” which also saw two students choreographing it before concluding
with the Qawwali, ‘Dil Yehi Kahta Hain’.
Between the songs, many students got up and shared their innumerable
experiences with their Lord when He stood with outstretched hands and said ‘Take
Me’. He did give Himself to all, more perceptibly to His students. Saving the
life of some, consoling the grief of another and solving the financial crisis of
a third, He has saturated them with gratitude for Him.
The students brought the curtains down quoting Johannes A. Gaertner,
“To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is
generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.”
The teachers of the campus distributed gifts from Bhagawan to all the
passing out students. The Sunday session came to a blessed end with Bhagawan
singing “Madhuvana Sanchari Shyama Murari“. Arati was offered to
Bhagawan at 1830hrs.
