55th edition of Samarpan - Sri Nimish & Smt Kamala Pandya at Dharmakshetra - Sunday 20th October 2019
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Aum Sri Sai Ram
...Our Loving Tribute at HIS Divine Lotus Feet
Samarpan means ‘offering’, ‘total surrender’. This is an initiative by the alumni of Sri Sathya Sai Institutions (Sri Sathya Sai Students) as an offering in their loving gratitude to Swami.
For Sai Students, Swami is their parent, guru, friend, philosopher, guide and God. All initiatives organized are with total surrender to Bhagawan, whose divine guidance has helped them achieve several small and big milestones. Hence, ‘total surrender’ to His Will.
Samarpan is a platform for students & staff, devotees and alumni to re-connect with their Lord. A platform where senior devotees share their personal experiences with the Lord.
By Bhagawan's immense Grace, the 55th edition of SAMARPAN coincides with the 'Avatar Declaration Day', i.e. 20th October 2019.
To enjoy His Divine Presence on this auspicious day, when our Beloved Swami declared His Avatarhood to all, we were fortunate to have with us our very own Sri Nimish Pandya and Smt. Kamala Pandya as Guest Speakers.
