Main points by SP:

We have to realise that the spiritual journey should end with Bhagavan, for which we should strive continuously. We should rethink about our priorities in life and change directions if necessary. Only those who dare to jump in the ocean shall reap the pearls. Like a good farmer , we should prepare our soil for good activities. Only a pure heart can be the seat of Swami. Getting Swami is easy- retaining Him is difficult.

FOR ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITIES, TALENT IS NOT IMPORTANT, AVAILABILITY IS.

For our Spiritual journey, we should avoid bad company, reject evil, do good, develop nithya-anithya vivekam. Discard EGO . Aware that faith will be followed by tests.

Main points by SVP:

We should have PASSION for Sai work. It should become more essential to our life than food. We should do SWOT ( Strength, Weakness, Opportunites, Threats ) analysis on a n individual and collective basis. We have to ask ourselves if we derive happiness from Sai work. Quoting the mahaprasthana story of Pandavas wherein Yudhishtira was giving relief to the inmates of Naraka, SVP exhorted the convenors to become Yudhishtiras. When we do GOD’s work, even Devil shall do our work 9again a beautiful story).

Bhajan, Balvikas, Nagar Sankirthan, Study Circle and Continuous Service activities are the 5 key points of organization work. District Energetic Enthusiastic Person (DEEP) was then elaborated. Importance of Ceiling on Desires (COD- Call of Divinity ) also discussed.

SVP concluded with DIN- Do It Now

PROJECTOR INAUGURATION

A Dream of BV and IT wings was realized when the new Projetor and Screen was inaugurated by SVP. It is expected that this will add colour to Sai Activities in the District, especially BV Summer Camp, Parenting, EHV, Monthly meetings and any other occassion which warrant a presentation.

AFTERNOON

The afternoon session was an intensive analysis future activities. SP quoted MS Subbulakshmi’s words “ when he is giving me all I need without myself being aware of the need in the first place, why should I ask for anything? “. If you love Swami, obey Swami. Stressing on the rules of organization, it was pointed out that a football game without rules will be chaotic and uninteresting. Points of expansion for BV and IT activities were elaborated by SVP.
