As part of the Dasara Celebrations, the evening programs are conducted under the auspices of the ‘Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha’, where many erudite scholars, students and functionaries of Bhagawan’s institutions, address the gathering on topics concerning spirituality and philosophy, Bhagawan’s teachings and experiences of devotees, in the Sai Kulwant Hall. After the invocatory Vedam Chanting by the Sri Sathya Sai Primary School Children, Brahmasri Mylavarapu Srinivas Rao addressed the gathering this evening. Sri Srinivas Rao, a scholarly speaker who delivers lectures on Ramayanam, Mahabharatam, Bhagavatam, Vedas, Puranas and Itihasas, beautifully explained the significance of 'Dasara' drawing parallels between Devi & Mother Sai. His exposition on different 'Alankarams'(decorations) during the Navaratri was filled with lessons from scriptures. Please find below the glimpses for the same.
