Reinstallation of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's Idol | Prasanthi Nilayam Bhajan Hall | 5th March, 2020
When this statue arrived to Prasanthi in the summer of 2002, it was placed in the Poorna Chandra Auditorium. Swami was in Brindavan then.
When Bhagawan returned after a few days, He went straight to the Poorna Chandra Auditorium to see this masterpiece.
He asked the boys serving Him, "How is the statue?"
They kept silent.
Bhagawan asked again.
The boys did not say a word.
They did not know how to tell Swami that they were not comfortable with a statue when their beloved Bhagawan was with them in flesh and blood.
Sensing the discomfort in their hearts, the all-knowing Bhagawan, said, ”Now this body is there, what happens when the body goes? What will you do then?"
The students said, "Swami, we have You now. Why do we need this statue now? We cannot and do not want to think of a future without You."
Swami then looked deep into the eyes of these boys and said:
"Just like I chose when to come, I can also choose when to go. You might think I am here for 96 years but nothing stops Me from going whenever I want. You have to look beyond the body. Don’t be carried away by My physical form. Look at the Real Swami. Think of the Real Swami!"
In fact this statue was installed by Bhagawan Himself in the Sai Kulwant Hall in 2002 and later moved inside to the Bhajan Hall.
On this occasion, as the statue was being reinstalled in the sanctum sanctorum of Prasanthi Nilayam, Bhagawan had indeed materialised a sacred yantra and Himself placed it below the statue.
This Divinely Super Charged holy abode today goes back to how Bhagawan had Himself recreated it about two decades ago.
Every little aspect of His Divine Masterplan has been meticulously planned by Him. Who can understand the mysteries of the One who is Timeless!
