“THREE disciplines are essential, to become aware of Divinity in all and in the Avatar. No activity should be taken up with individual aggrandizement in view; intellectual emotion must be directed to the revelation of the Resident in the Heart, Atma. Every act should be done sincerely, with love, with no yearning for acquiring personal profit, fame or benefit. Above all, listen to the voice of God within. As soon as one contemplates a wrong act, that voice warns, protests and advises giving up.”
With the Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, we are delighted to present our Forty Sixth 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 highlights of the Bhagawan's visit to South America and Spain between October 13 and October 26, 2016, which is underway.

Also we present you a short video of remarks by Sri B N Narasimha Murthy about Sri Dwarakanath on 17th September, 2016 at Sai Anandam, Singapore.

In this week's INNER-VIEW, Brother Madhusudan Naidu shares another interesting moment which took place between the Lord and Brother Sumeet Tappoo in Fiji. Only God can elevate from wordly experience to an intense spiritual lesson.

While travelling in the car in Fiji, Swami was talking to Brother Sumeet Tappoo and was enquiring about  the construction of the upcoming Ashram in Pacific Harbour area. Brother Sumeet mentioned that the construction norms in Fiji are far more stringent that India, as it has to be cyclone prone and the building needs to have much stronger foundation, thicker walls, with a different kind of roof. Swami remarked, "When one lives in Fiji, one cannot wish that there shouldn't be any cyclone, as the natural location makes it prone to it. But what one can do is to have a stronger house, with better foundation in order to withstand the storms. Like wise in life too, there are storms of bad times which one can't simply wish away, instead one needs to accept the duality of life and have stronger spiritual foundation, so that one is not blown away during bad times".

Sri H S Dwarakanath, one of the Dearest devotees of Bhagawan Baba, is no more. He shed his mortal coil and merged at the Lotus Feet of Bhagawan Baba on October 13, 2016.

Sri Dwarakanath, who had been serving Bhagawan for over four decades at Sri Sathya Sai Grama, and thereafter was instrumental in developing the first campus at Gulbarga in Bhagawan’s continuing mission in the subtle form, followed by the Bagalkot and Vijaypura campuses, and thereafter, one in his own home district of Hassan, was the Principal of the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Pre-University College, Muddenahalli, when he was sent by Swami to develop the Gulbarga campus.

Sri Dwarakanath was born in Hulikal village, Hassan District, on May 15, 1955.

Always with a charming smile on his face, Sri Dwarakanath was a Tyagajeevi and a Karmayogi. He was one of the most dedicated soldiers in the Sai Army.

Below are some of the old Photographs of Dwarakanath Sir,




Even before the sounds of the drum rolls of the Dhakis of Durga Puja could fade in to the ether and the vibrant echos of the Vedic recitals of Dasara festivities could dissolve in to the eternity, Bhagawan’s entourage were once again in the Bangalore airport waiting to board their next flight, this time the destination was Latin America. Last year as the Argentinians prayed to Bhagwan to visit their country, He graciously accepted the invitation to their homes and hearts. Plans were made, events were organised to make the best of the divine visit the Latin American countries, and Spain.

The entourage boarded a Lufthansa flight in the wee hours of the morning on October 13th to Frankfurt. After a stopover of a few hours the journey continued to Buenos Aires. The dawn of October 14th saw a divine sunrise as the golden rays filled the hearts of the eager devotees, which shined forth in their twinkling eyes, and burst forth in their warm smiles as the entourage were received by the devotees of Argentina. Everyone boarded a mini bus to a beautiful countryside in Escobar, away from the humdrum of the busy city of Buenos Aires. After a two hour drive the entourage reached the residence of Dr Jorge Berra and his devoted wife Mrs Rosanna Berra, who learnt about Swami 30 years ago and since then has not wasted a moment in His service, be it translation of books in to Spanish, conducting study circles and Sai activities, providing relief to the sick and starved or motivating the young and the younger. Set in a picturesque gated community by the lakeside was ‘Sai Home’, waiting to truly become the ‘Home of Sai’.

Bhagawan was received with a lot of devotion as He made His way to the living room, where He....

Everyone woke up to a wet day, with rains drenching every bit of the place and making it more beautiful than before. After an Indian breakfast in Argentina, thanks to the untiring efforts of the devotees who brought all the ingredients from India and cooked it only to please Swami, Swami granted a few interviews before lunch guiding the devotees on both the spiritual and the worldly aspects of their lives. No one is new to Swami for all belong to Him. Nothing could testify it further than the interviews granted to some total new comers who left the place in awe of Swami’s omnipresence and omniscience! From enquiring about a disease of the past, “How is your lever now?”, to confirming the course for the future, “Study psychology”, to warning about some old sticky habits, “Don’t drive your car so fast”, to spiritual guidance, “The way you meditate on OM needs to be different”, Swami had something to say, guide, reveal and re-assure everyone.

After lunch and brief rest, Swami’s entourage proceeded to the venue in the heart of the city of Buenos Aires where the Public Satsang was organised. Almost an hour and a half of brisk drive and Bhagawan reached the venue, where over 700 devotees had gathered from over 12 countries of Colombia, Uruguay, Praguay, Chile, Brazil, USA, Mexico etc apart from a large number of Argentinian devotees. As Swami entered the hall that was reverberating with soulful bhajans, the hearts of the devotees melted away in to the warm tears of joy from their thirsting eyes, a scene that will ever remain etched in our memories. Swami’s heart was full and there was nothing needed to be spoken from the lips, as the eyes did all the talking in the language of silent tears. Swami walked amidst the devotees giving them the joy that was beyond this world – Happiness that comes only when you unite with GOD. Swami took His seat on the tastefully decorated.....
