SRI SATHYA SAI DIGVIJAYAM
THE GLORIOUS JOURNEY OF SRI SATHYA SAI AVATAR
PART 3 (2006 – 2011)
The third volume of Sri Sathya Sai Digvijayam covers the years 2006 to 2011 of Bhagavan’s Avataric life. Though a brief span of five years, these have been the most well-recorded years of His Avataric life, almost on a daily basis, and hence an entire volume of nearly 375 pages has been dedicated for this period. Thanks to the meticulous updates provided by the Prasanthi Reporter series of updates by the Book Trust, and the Prasanthi Diary series of updates by the Radio Sai website, along with the details provided in the Sanathana Sarathi magazine, that devotees are able to relive those moments with vivid details.
This volume has 8 collages with over 100 rare photographs that cover important events during this period such Swami’s visit to Kodaikanal, Chennai, Hadshi, Mumbai, Delhi and Shimla, and occasions such as the Ati Rudra Mahayajna, the Sahasra Poornachandra Darshana Yajna and the 85th Birthday celebrations. These have been printed on large A3 size sheets for better viewing.
The first two volumes of this series were released by Bhagavan on the eve of Maha Shivaratri 2011 in the Prasanthi Nilayam Bhajan Mandir. A copy of photos documenting that event have been included on page 372. These were the last set of books physically released by Bhagavan in His Avataric life. On hindsight and reflection, it is symbolic and very insightful that He willed that the Digvijayam books, symbolising the triumphant journey of the Sathya Sai Avatar during this earthly sojourn, be the last blessed by Him personally.
With a heavy heart, yet supreme satisfaction, this volume was offered to Bhagavan on April 24, 2014, on the occasion of the third Aradhana Day at Prasanthi Nilayam.
