Puttaparthi Glistens in Green!
The month of September has been very different in Puttaparthi. Rains have
blessed the dry earth for many successive days and the highlight of this has
been the filling up of the legendary Chitravati River, to the delight of one
and all. Prashanti Nilayam is fresh and there is emerald grandeur everywhere -
so clean, beautiful and picturesque. And here are a few ‘green glimpses’ of
this holy hamlet brought specially for you. (click to enlarge)
The Gujarat Youth were ready with a cultural programme this evening. The proceedings
got underway at 4.45 pm with Bhagawan coming onstage after His darshan round.
Bhagawan Blessed various items brought up to Him by the Youth. A brief
announcement followed, which mentioned the added significance of today being
Gandhi Jayanthi. A welcome song preceded the 20 minute drama presented by the
Youth, on how Faith is more to be valued than a dogmatic interpretation of
Science. Bhagawan Blessed the two main protagonists of the drama with a chain and a ring as the ending
song went on. He then came down from the stage and granted group photographs for the
participants. He asked them to sing Bhajans, and as Bhajans went on, He distributed clothes to
the participants. It was 6.15 when He accepted Arati and returned to His residence.
