Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s birthday celebrations are joyous occasions for devotees all over the world. Thousands of devotees assemble in Prasanthi Nilayam to bask in the grand celebrations. It is a tradition that Prasanthi Nilayam administration makes the arrangement to serve free Anna Prasadam to all devotees coming for Birthday celebrations.
Due to the Covid restrictions, in consideration of the safety of the devotees, the Birthday celebrations in Prasanthi Nilayam are planned at a low key. The food courts which used to serve delicious food as prasadam in Prasanthi Nilayam are not functioning this time, as Covid does not allow crowding. But the penchant to serve is very high. In order to keep everybody safe, it has been decided to reach prasadam to 199 villages spread over 17 mandals of the Anantapuram District of Andhra Pradesh, serving over 1,00,000 meals on Swami’s 95th Birthday celebrations.
This initiative is being taken up by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, along with Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. To all the selected villages, groceries offered by devotees from Karnataka were flagged off this morning from Prasanthi Nilayam by Sri R J Rathnakar, Managing Trustee, SSSCT.
On the morning of 23rd November, 2020, in all the selected villages of Ananthapuram District, the 95th Birthday of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba Varu will be celebrated by the devotees with total dedication and devotion, in a modest way. ‘Anna Prasadam’ will be prepared in their respective villages by the Anantapuram district Sevadal and will be distributed to devotees.https://www.facebook.com/55153101118/posts/10159083790846119/
