speech by Sri J. Jayaraman @ Prasanthi Nilayam
« on: April 30, 2012, 10:40:27 AM »
Prasanthi Nilayam witnessed a festival of difference, Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam, a celebration in commemoration of the ascent of the Avatar of the Age – Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba on 23rd, 24th and 25th April 2012. It was on the 24th of April last year that Bhagawan moved on from the physical plane of existence, to become the subtler omnipresence all-pervading reality. The festivity for three days was attended by thousands of devotees from all around the world and was marked with speeches and cultural programmes.

Continuing with the colloquium, “Experiencing the Divine – the Form to the Formless” two programmes were slated for the evening session of 23rd April 2012. The first was a scholarly speech by Sri J. Jayaraman from the Ramanashram.

Sri Jayaraman gave a scholarly exposition delving into philosophical truths. Paying his salutations to the Self-effulgent, Self-sporting light Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the speaker spoke of his inner experiences. Sri Jayaraman opined that one cannot expect the form to be always there. One has to withdraw to go to a higher plane. One has to withdraw from the outer and travel to the inner plane. The inner subsumes the outer.

Speaking further, the learned speaker posed a question, “What is the most permanent thing in the Jagrat (waking) state?” It is the sense of being. One has to surrender, and that is the ultimate stage in one’s life. It will be foolhardy to say, “I want to experience the Supreme Oneness.” One has to surrender every action to the Lord.

Sri Jayaraman was also blessed with two interviews with Bhagawan. When he asked Swami in one of the interviews for Balam (strength), Swami gave a succinct reply: “Atma is Balam.” He concluded his speech with a Sloka (verse) of Ramana Maharshi.



The entire speech is currently unavailable, when it is made available, i shall post it here.

Salutations to Bhagavan
