Sai Ram Dear All,


As you all are aware, the Centennial Celebrations of Swami’s Advent will be celebrated from now on until 2025. One of the celebratory initiatives that is being organized is a series of Ati Rudra Mahayajnas.  These are powerful Vedic ceremonies for world peace, happiness, and prosperity.  Further information regarding their significance can be found in this FAQ document.  The Ati Rudra Mahayajnam team led by Brother Sekhar Boddupalli from the Sri Sathya Sai Global Council Center of Sacramento is conducting the first in this series of Yajnams (sacred offerings) at the Orangevale, Greater Sacramento Area, California, USA from April 11 to April 16, 2022.

The virtual preparatory sadhana (spiritual practices) will begin on December 08, 2021 and continue until April 10, 2022. The online daily prayers and chants will be done collectively via Zoom. There will be multiple zoom sessions catering to devotees residing in various time zones. This online virtual sadhana offers everyone an opportunity to participate in the celebrations,  the Chandi Homa & Ati Rudra Mahayajna (CHARM), even if one is unable to attend the yajna in person.  

To participate in the daily sadhana, one does not necessarily have to know the chants or prayers. Dialing in to just listen and pray will bring immense benefit to the participants in the sadhana. Students who are learning the chants too will find the sessions valuable.  

This opportunity is a boon for all those who wish to be part of Swami’s Mission of spreading the Vedas to all the corners of the world and intensify our prayers for universal healing and peace. 

May all our collective prayers raise the immunity against all viruses, their variants as well as other ailments associated with the inner enemies.

Brief History

About

Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born in Puttaparthi on Nov 23, 1926 – an auspicious Monday in the lunar month of Kartika, when Lord Shiva is especially adored.

His Life
Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born in Puttaparthi on Nov 23, 1926 – an auspicious Monday in the lunar month of Kartika, when Lord Shiva is especially adored. He was given the name Sathyanarayana Raju. What intrigued His mother Easwaramma, most was the unbounded compassion her little Sathya had particularly for the poor and downtrodden. Even as a toddler, He insisted that the beggar at the door be served well in spite of their own limited means and would often give His own share to the needy. When He began school, His playmates were inspired by His ability to lead them to be socially responsible, spiritually aware, endowed with individual and national character. His friends were often fascinated by His extraordinary powers of creating things out of thin air, knowing the future, deep understanding of scriptural wisdom and so on.
The Childhood

The Raju family of Puttaparthi was noted for its piety since the days of the renowned sage, Venkavadhootha, a saintly ancestor who was looked upon as a Guru in hundreds of villages around. Not only did the family build and endow the Gopalaswami Temple (dedicated to Lord Krishna), but Sri Ratnakaram Kondama Raju, the grandfather of Baba’s physical frame, dedicated a temple to Sathyabhama, consort of Lord Krishna, a deity to whom this type of homage is seldom offered in any part of India. Peasants by vocation, they were known for their musical and dramatic talent and were much involved in the propagation of the sacred scriptures through village plays and musicals. Consequently, the family was given the name ‘Bhat Raju’ (Bhat – priest)

The Advent

23rd of November, 1926, the Hindu year of Akshaya, meaning, the Never-declining, the Ever-full. It was the time of sunrise and the villagers were chanting the names of Lord Shiva, remembering that the day was Karthika Somavara, a Monday of the Holy Month of Karthika, devoted to the puja (worship) of Shiva. That day was made even more auspicious for Shiva worship because the ascendant star was Ardra (the star of Shiva). On this day, when these rare and propitious signs came together, the people thronged the temples of the Lord to offer special pujas and pray for His benediction.
