Pujya Sri Swamiji speaks on Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba - 26 April 2011

Pujya Sri Swamiji with Sri Satya Sai Baba - Puttaparthy - 16 November 2008

April 26 - 2011 - After Sri Chakra Puja today, expressing His deep condolence on the withdrawal of HH Sri Sathya Sai Baba's Avatar, Parama Pujya Sri Swamiji, spoke thus:

'Divinity doesn't depart'
The yeomen services rendered by Sri Sathya Sai to the mankind are inimitable and possible only to Divine and in our view, the services and the bodily abode of Sri Sathya Sai is an embodiment of the of a very high divine Sankalpa. Withdrawing His physical appearance is also the divine play of God. All the devotees of Sri Baba should recognize and realize this fact, overcome the greatest grief and implement His inspirational message. This is the most fitting homage to the divine Baba.
May Lord Datta give the needed strength to the devotee universe of Sri Sathya Sai to reach the most desired state by Sri Baba.

A cherished memory from 16th November 2008
