SaiRam Dear Members.  Please find below the latest Sri Sathya Sai Center of Loudoun Newsletter.


A Warm and Loving Sairam Dear Members,

Hope all of you are having a blessed week! 

Last Sunday we had  blissful Hanuman Chalisa and Mantra Pushpam learning along with parental satsang “Harmonious Homes” led by sister Maha Karthik, Mom's & Dad's panel members. Added flavor was participation by center parents (Moms and Dads) in the satsang who gave a lot of inputs to all scenario discussions and energy was so intense and really reflected. A hearty thanks to Swami for giving us all this wonderful opportunity and thanks to everyone who came and participated.

This Sunday March 26th, we will be celebrating New Years Day (Ugadhi, Nav Roj, Baha'i etc). Although every day is just like any other, some days have special significance. And days, weeks, months and years are nothing but just flow of time, Swami has mentioned on several occasions the importance of time. See for couple of quotes of Swami in Devotional Session below.

Requesting all parents, members to Join in learning Mantra Pushpam.

Please find this week's Centre Newsletter, updates from all wings (Devotion, SSSE, Seva & YA) along with Centre Calendar for March 2023 and Zonal/Regional updates.

Swami's quotes from divine discourse about Ugadi

“Ugadi or New Year day is a festival that teaches lessons in selfless service. It is not intended for feasting. It is a sacred day when wholesome wisdom should dawn and enlightenment should blossom in the hearts of people…. Time is God. God is called Kala-svaruupa (the very embodiment of Time). Hence, we must respect Time and spend it in useful pursuits. Wasting of time is ungodly.”

 “….Without Time, there is no world. Without the world there is no creation, without creation there is nothing. Every created thing is born of Time. This New Year's Day proclaims the truth that God is the Master of Time. Unfortunately, man fails to understand the power of God. He wastes three quarters of his time in unworthy earthly pursuits. Spiritual pursuit is the right way of making use of time.”
