More than a thousand ‘full moons’ ago, a day dawned that was to brilliantly enhance the destiny of mankind. The glorious day saw the ‘birth’ of a Divine Babe, in a tiny hamlet of South-India, Who would be called ‘Sathya’ and Who would usher in a golden era of great moral and spiritual regeneration. The Day was 23rd November, 1926. Subsequently, after ‘formally’ launching His Avataric Mission in later years, The Unique Graciousness called Sri Sathya Sai, most magnanimously granted His ‘folks’ acquiescence to celebrate The Day as ‘His Birthday’.

This was the day when The Lord would enchant His folks, out of His Cosmic Compassion, in the name of ‘His Birthday’, year after year for decades, at the same Darshan ground, in Prasanthi Nilayam. …And when Prasanthi woke up to 23rd November yet again this morning, it was golden nostalgia of ‘His Love That Conquers’ that lingered around.
