Dearest all – Om Sri Sairam!
This pandemic is an incredible transformational force that has brought humanity to its knees. It is evident that the root cause of this Collective Suffering is the mass unconsciousness or unawareness that we are a Collective Cosmic Being including all others that share this planet. To overcome this suffering now and in future it is inevitable to surrender together in Collective Prayers to bring forth raise in mass awareness of Collective Living, Collective Learning, Collective Listening, and Collective Loving. This is the quintessential teaching and path of the Enlightened – The Buddha!
We offer Sata kOTi praNams at the Lotus Feet of Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba. These are undoubtedly testing times for the entire humanity and millions affected by the loss or ill health of a loved one due to the pandemic and beyond.
