Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba: ALWAYS WILL BE AMONGST US – Dr. Pravin Togadia
New Delhi, April 24, 2011
Today, Sri Sathya Sai Baba has left His worldly body. Expressing his tribute to Sri Sathya Sai Baba, VHP International Secretary-General Dr. Pravin Togadia said, “It is the greatest miracle that Bhagwan Sathya Sai Baba left His worldly body exactly after the Dev Graha Brihaspati (Guru) had Udaya today at 07.29 am which was Asta for some time. This means He will be there with all of us through His spiritual powers all the time.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba did for the poor, the needy, the ill & the needy what mighty governments haven’t done. He created 3 high tech multi-facilities hospitals. By free heart surgeries, He saved many people. Giving water to thirst is the greatest thing. He created systems that supplied clean water to around 750 villages in Andhra’s Ananthpur dist. He also created universities & institutions that are giving free higher education. He will always be with us through His philanthropic work in the fields of Health, Education & Water supply.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba has always cherished a dream & wish of a grand temple of Bhagwan Ram at His birthplace in Ayodhya. Now it is the responsibility of all His devotees to fulfill His dream rising above political party lines. He also stood with Vishwa Hindu Parishad in its movement against breaking Rameshwaram Ram Sethu. It is also the responsibility of the concerned governments not to hurt His devotees & Hindu sentiments by any such acts that He would not have supported such as breaking the Ram Sethu. He was very keen that temples, Mutts & Ashrams must not be acquired by governments as they belong to the Bhagwan’s & devotees – therefore, governments should no more break His & His devotees’ hearts by grabbing temples, Mutts & Ashrams. Special appeal to a few media who enjoy abusing Hindus: Kindly stop degrading & defaming Sri Sathya Sai Baba & Hindu Dharm at least now after He has left his worldly body & stop dirty debates about the Social Charitable Trust He has been running for the poor, the ill & the needy.
We are sure that Sri Sathya Sai Baba will always amongst us & VHP will always be grateful to Him for His inspiration & guidance.”
