What does it take to be available? It takes tremendous amount of fearlessness and courage. Courage to let go and be free. Why do you have to fear? If you really have faith, there is no fear. Faith knows no fear. Fear knows no faith. And how can you be fearless? Have Faith that He is there to look after everything, 'Why should I worry about it, why should I fear?' This is the spirituality. You are not just ordinary humans, mortals. You are Divine, you are God. So, you have all that which God has. What God can do, you can do too, because you are God. But you forget it!                             
With the Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, we are delighted to present our One Hundred and Sixty Sixth issue of Ananda Vahini. The weekly newsletter includes interesting musings and short excerpts from the week's events.

In this issue, we present you the updates of Bhagwan's visit to different campuses of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Group of Institutions from July 24 to July 27, 2019.

In this week's INNER VIEW, Sadhguru Sri Madhusudan  Sai shares about an interesting moment between Sri Madhusudan Sai and a devotee in Melbourne.

God’s Experience! 
A lady in Melbourne got up to pray to Bhagawan to shower His blessings upon her children so that they could also experience Swami.

Swami asked her back, “What do you mean by experiencing Swami?”

She replied, “Swami’s presence and miracles....”

Swami was quick to cut her short and said, “Swami’s presence and miracles at a place is not the experience of Swami. If you do something that your child cannot, then your own child will call you a miracle woman. If I can do something that you cannot, then I am called a miracle man. So, it’s not miracles, but it’s the experience of God’s love in one’s heart which is truly experiencing Swami.”

Not stopping there, Swami further clarified, “And a mother can help the children experience God by raising them well, like the mother Madalasa of the yore, who while rocking the cradle, sang lullabies conveying that, beyond the delusions of the world they are purity, awareness and bliss personified. That led to her children becoming Brahma Jnanis (Knowers of God).”

More than God Himself, it’s the mother who can help her children experience God as love, we learnt. Isn’t it why they say that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, nay spiritual world!     
What is the phenomenon of Madhusudan Sai?
By Sri Madhusudan Sai 
Madhusudan's body is a vessel and Sathya Sai Baba's 'Pragya' is the water - the content. 

Madhusudan emptied himself of his own personality (Aham Bhava) to make space for Sathya Sai Baba to fill his being with His Pragya. Therefore, this form which has the body of Madhusudan but Pragya of Sathya Sai is - Madhusudan Sai. 

Just as the Pragya of Shirdi Sai manifested in the body of Sathyanarayan Raju and was known as Sathya Sai, so is the Pragya of Sathya Sai manifesting in Madhusudan and is now Madhusudan Sai. 

So, the outer form is Madhusudan and inner content is Sathya Sai. 

However, the way you address Him that is the way He will respond. Call Him as man and He will respond as man. Call out to Him as God, He will respond as God. However, when not addressed either as human or divine - he is the combination of both divine in human and human in divine - as Madhusudan Sai. 

Earlier, the choice of responding as human or divine was with the divine but now the choice is with human. Like the control button that switches the channel from one to another, which was earlier with Sathya Sai alone, now it is with Madhusudan Sai.     



Day 1 – July 25, 2019 

The visit of Bhagawan to Sri Sathya Sai Premaniketanam was an answer to the prayers of students who had prayed to Him to visit their Campus. It was the most wonderful and joyful surprise to the students when they got the news of Swami’s arrival!

All the students were lined up along the road to welcome their Master, their Swami. As soon as He got down from the Car, He was welcomed by the staff. After some refreshments were served to Swami and His guests who had accompanied Him, Mr Bob Imhoff, Dr David Cornsweet and his wife Mrs Jennie, He proceeded for Satsang. The thirst of all students was quenched as their Lord walked amidst them, blessed them, spoke to them, and showered His bountiful love.

Swami sat on His new Simhasana and all the students beamed in joy. Swami was lost in melodious Bhajans for a long time. This was followed by Veda Gosha. Swami and His guests were welcomed by Brother Gaurav, who spoke his heart out and told the students that everyone should follow in the footsteps of Swami’s guests who had accompanied Him, as they were walking in the footsteps of Sai.

A recipient of Sri Madiyala Narayan Bhatt scholarship spoke straight from his heart next. The student said Swami has given everything to him now, but before, he was struggling to get even get educated. Sri B N Narasimha Murthy spoke about the guests in....

When Bhagawan decided to spend precious moments with His beloved children, nothing could stop it, even though it was a short visit. Within 24 hours all the necessary permissions for helicopter landing were obtained. Even a new helipad was built overnight! Decoration was done by children with their own handmade creation. The stage was set. Many delicious dishes were ready. And the children waited with their eyes glued to the sky. When the helicopter landed on the soil of Sri Sathya Sai Vaniniketanam, Gadag of July 26, 2019, it was a sight to behold! God descending to be with His beloved creation. He was taken in procession of Veda and Dollu. Swami spoke to His guests about the importance of girl child education as part of His mission.

Swami dined with the guests and students. All the students prayed fervently that He speaks to them. He granted the boon by calling all of them inside His residence and talking to them. Children basked in His divine love. The prayers of the children were heard by all God’s and it started pouring, when He was about to leave. So, He....

July 26, 2019 – Evening

Swami was received at Sri Sathya Sai Sharadaniketanam, Mandya in the evening by the traditional Veeragaase and Kamsaale dancers, traditional trumpets, Mangalavadya. The procession was led by Veda and Poorna Kumbam. Students and staff from both the Mandya and Mysore Campus were present to welcome Bhagawan. After arrival, He took His guests straight to His room and spoke to them about the history and genesis of the Campus before urging them to rest for a while.

In the evening, Swami came down for Satsang. Sai Hrudayam prayer hall was filled with the students of both the campuses, their parents, devotees, alumni, who were all eagerly waiting to enjoy the divine nectar. Dr David Cornsweet addressed the students first and explained how Swami is toiling to provide best quality of education and facilities to thousands of students studying in different campuses. He told the students to make best use of the opportunity. Sri B N Narasimha Murthy sir spoke about how to offer gratitude to the Lord through daily prayers.

Swami blessed all with His divine message, “You are all learning Vedas, you all chant Upanishads. So Isavasya Upanishad says – Tatra ko noha ka shokah ekatvam anupashyataha. The one who sees oneness of God inside, outside, everywhere, in everything, will never be sad. There will never be a moment when he will be sad or sorrowful. So what is the secret to be happy always? To realise God within. That is the only way to be happy....
