Br. Pradosh Dessai – Experiences Sharing SSSGC USA – Region 2 President Sunday, January 16th 2022 @ 10 AM
This Sunday, we will start off with Bhajans and following the bhajans we will follow 21 Aum Sri Sai Ram chanting (as part of 1008 Sadhana).
Happy Pongal and Sankranthi:
Swami says “This day has an outer and inner significance, the inner having a greater value for aspirants for spiritual progress. I do not attach much value for the outer meaning…One’s life must be a perpetual spiritual practice. Uttarayana is a matter of attitude…when your sight is on Brahman, it is Utarrayana…But for the real Uttarayana, you must make effort, tremendous efforts…The path is straight and hard, but the goal is glorious. It is nothing less than illumination. When you crave the thought of the Lord and the company of the godly, then you are in Uttarayana.”

1008 Sadhana Offering 21 Aum Sri Sai Ram chanting during center meeting on Sunday, January 16th, 2022 @ 10 AM
“The purpose of life is to know one’s own self”. Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) helps us to understand the questions,
“Who am I? | From where did I come? | Where am I going to? | How long I will be here? “
1008 days of sadhana program is to practice sadhana. Sadhana (Spritiual Practice) will help us to reach our goal of spiritual realization. Once you start practicing something, eventually that becomes an habit where there is no need for any Sadhana offerings. There is no time limit of 1008 days as this is always a life long Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that all of us have to follow.
Note: This is an progressive Sadhana Offering that will cover an span of 4 years leading to Sri Sathya Sai Baba 100th Birthday Celebrations.
The 1008 Sadhana offering was launched (start of 96th Birthday offering (96 days leading to 96th Birthday)) on Thursday August 19th 2021. Please join as this is open for all Children, Young Adults and Adults. Where ever one may be, you can still follow the sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that will help you to answer the above questions. You don’t have to register to participate as it is Optional.
