"Spirituality is beyond science, and is a full circle; science is only a half circle. Science is a part of spirituality. Everything is a part of spirituality and divine principal. In spiritual realms, there are no constraints of time, space and circumstances, and they have no reason of logic. The laws of spirituality are the laws of love. As God decides, He does. As God wants, He behaves! As God likes, He says. No one can restrict or limit God!”                                                                                                                                                                                - Baba
With the Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, we are delighted to present our twenty ninth issue of Ananda Vahini. The weekly newsletter includes interesting musings and short excerpts from the week's events.

In this week's issue, we bring you the continuation of Bhagawan's visit to Canada, the United States of America and Mexico which is underway.

Boston and San Jose, USA – June 14, 2016


An early start to the day, with some delicious breakfast and Mangala Aarthi offered to Bhagawan, ensured His entourage was well in time to the airport, despite the morning rush hour traffic. Before leaving the residence, Swami blessed the family of Sri Bharat Patel and assured He would return next year. He also spoke to them about the importance of ‘focus’. “If all our thoughts, words and deeds are focussed towards God, not for an hour, week or year, but throughout our lives, that generates tremendous power of divinity. Whatever we say, think or do becomes divine. Over the last two days, you have all spent thinking and speaking about God, and you have derived a lot of joy and happiness. Continue doing this throughout your life, and you will always feel this divinity. This is the key. We have all the powers within us. Because it is not focussed, it gets wasted. Keep God at the center of all that you do. As long as you have God at the center, all your ‘I’ and ego will disappear. You will then experience the divinity in yourself and the divinity in others all the time.

San Jose, USA – June 16, 2016

After breakfast, Bhagawan with His entourage proceeded to the venue for the Young Adults USA Meet. Over 150 youth had gathered from California and various other parts of the US. Swami is always excited to be with the youth, as He believes that they are the harbingers of His mission, and will be front runners in taking His mighty mission forward. The Lord was welcomed with traditional Purna Kumbham and bhajans.

Sister Divya Jayaram, the Youth Leader (Women) for USA, welcomed Bhagawan and His entourage. On behalf of all the youth gathered, she expressed her gratitude to Swami for meeting all of them and invited the first speaker Sister Bhuvana Santhanam to address the gathering. Sister Bhuvana, on Swami’s command, spoke about her journey from the time she left the portals of the Sathya Sai Institute, her successful professional career in Qatar and Dubai, her stint with upgrading her skills in the UK and also at Harvard Business School. She quoted a story which Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa would often narrate, “At the doors of large granaries are placed traps containing puffed rice to catch mice. The mice, attracted by the flavour of the fried rice, forgets the more solid pleasure of tasting the rice inside the granary, and fall into the trap. They are caught therein and killed. Just so is the case with the soul. It stands on the threshold of Divine bliss, which is like millions of the highest worldly pleasures solidified into one; but instead of striving for that bliss, it allows itself to be enticed by the petty pleasures of the world and falls into the trap of Maya, the great illusion, and dies therein.”
