Sri. Vijaya Bhaskar in satsang with R3 at Mill Hill Sai Centre on Sunday 11 Feb 2018
Devotees were blessed to have a glimpse of old and new Prashanthi through the eyes of Sri Vijaya Bhaskar. Sir covered a whole range of practical spiritual advice for earnest seekers from his experience as a student at Brindavan in 1970s and spending many years with Swami whilst observing him closely and following his advice on how to conduct oneself. He is now as Trustee at Prashanthi.
Most of us were mesmerised with his recounting of Swami's leelas whilst teaching a practical lesson.

Sri Vijaya Bhaskar speaking to Mill Hill SSE children and Gurus
How blessed we were on Sunday! -
Sister Vani has kindly shared her experience below with us and our wider Sai fold -
Sri Bhaskar started the discussions by taking the time to ask each of the 20 children present in the room, to introduce themselves to him, one by one – this was a lovely icebreaker to warm the hearts and energies and he made a special connection with each child in the room.
Celebrating Shivarathri ….
Festivals keep us reminding of the nature, inner meaning and path of travel. We are extremely fortunate that Swami encouraged his devotees to derive deep contentment from celebrating all major festivals of mankind. Mill Hill were blessed to host the Shivarathri festival last Tuesday evening and we have included a few photos below to remind us.
….. and Chinese New Year
We would like to share how our SSE Group 2 learnt about the Year of the Dog in their class.
The children knew today was a special and auspicious occasion and 2018, the ‘Year of the Dog,’ the 11th of the 12 zodiac animals. The Chinese Zodiac is a cycle of 12 years, where each year is represented by one of twelve animals.
Shreyas And Aditi went on to tell us all the myth of how the Chinese zodiac came about: According to a Chinese myths, the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac were selected through a race ordered by the Jade Emperor. This race is meant to create a time measurement for the people. There could only be twelve winners and in order to win, the animals had to cross a rapid current river and reach the finish line on the shore. The order was decided by the order in which they finished the race.
So ‘what are the characteristics of the dog’ I asked the children. They responded with loyalty & friendliness . Yes, A Dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work. Dogs are honest and just and are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. They are also good at helping others find and fix their bad habits. Despite how they act, they are worried and anxious inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it.
One of the children also mentioned the yin/yang aspect of the animals: the animals are separated into two categories -
The yin, the dark swirl, is associated with shadows, femininity, and the trough of a wave; the yang, the light swirl, represents brightness, passion and growth. The next question I asked was, ‘How do people celebrate Chinese New Year? They responded with parades, family meals, thorough cleaning of homes, exchanging gifts inc. red envelopes with money inside.
I then asked if any of them knew how to say Happy new Year in Chinese. None knew, so I taught them the phrase, ‘
Please see video clip below as group 2 wish all a Happy New Year.

Temple of Healing
We have come a long way since the 22nd November, 1991, when Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, inaugurated the hospital. This medical marvel has since then treated around 3.5 million( 35 lakh) patients from across India as well as abroad. Further the hospital has performed around 250,000 surgeries and procedures. All this completely free of charge for all irrespective of caste, class, creed, religion or nationality.
A majority of the patients who have been treated at our hospital come from extremely poor backgrounds, who could not have been able to afford such advanced care anywhere else.
Our Beloved Swami has always said that we should give the best to the patient. Following Swami’s word the hospital employs cutting-
The hospital prides itself for being one of the few hospitals in India, which is almost completely paperless and filmless and therefore is a completely digital hospital. But apart from a state-
