- Feedback from our readers on the September issue
So, you can imagine the pleasant surprise and boundless joy when I poured over the text and drank in all the pictures - it took me almost 90 mins to read through! I could scarce believe my eyes - one little wish made a few weeks ago and the grand fulfilment today, through this exquisite piece, not just with Swami's photos but a detailed description of all His expressions and comments. As I read through it, I felt the thrill and joy that you must have felt on that day. You gave the best gift possible - a "remote Darshan". You brought our Swami into my living room.
So, from the bottom and every other place in my heart, I express my gratitude for such loving service. It is said that the highest service one can do is to serve the children of the Lord.
Thank you, with love, Meema Kalluri
Dear Sai Brothers,
From start to finish the story was captivating and humbling as the realization of the grandeur of what we are experiencing in this lifetime hit home. Both "indescribably magnificent" as well as magnificently indescribable. While reading the words towards the end of your article “…without sparing a thought about the strain on the planet’s resources as the population rises exponentially” one of the many feelings prompting this heart was relative to a holiday here in the States, that of All Souls Day, when “all souls rise from the dead” and the role of the Sai Organization.
It was deeply felt here that as devotees of Lord Sai, we are all Seva Dals in this vast gathering of souls on planet Earth and we have been blessed with the opportunity and responsibility of promoting peace and silence among this unruly crowd through loving feelings, thoughts, speech and behavior, as the “Greatest Love Story Ever Written” unfolds, His Story. As the photo of the Earth in his hand depicts, “It’s all in the Hand”, which He lovingly told this heart in an interview. We need not worry about anything, just play well our part in the story, and pay attention to His directions.
Was it inspiring? Without reservations. Again, towards the end of your article, these words prompted this heart onwards with the above expressed feelings: “Incarnations of God in human form are extremely rare. God is now here with us and clearly, this is an opportunity we simply cannot afford to miss”.
Did it help you in any way? It helped to reassure the feelings in this heart that Swami’s Form is a focal point for the entire world in His Story, without exception or exclusion, and we need not concern ourselves with our seating arrangement as He has blessed each of us with a part to play, regardless of where we have been stationed. His Presence has been lovingly felt and expressed globally now,
With Love in Sai to all, Jai Sai Ram,
Sai brothers and sisters,
I do not have words to express my happiness and joy in reading such a huge and loving work of dear Baba’s students. It has given me tremendous happiness and peace and longing to be a smallest particle of service in His compassionate plan. Thank you for every article in H2H Radio Sai. I depend on them as my satsang. Thanks a lot again.
May His blessings be with everybody and always,
Again it is Swami's expression of Love that those of us who could not be present physically were given a taste of the exhibition through your cover story. Stupendous effort and marvellous job.
Thank you and Sai Ram,
WOW! Thank you so much for sharing the background to making this display. This article sends such a powerful and positive message to all – “Anything can be achieved if it is for the benefit of Mankind” and “Shared vision and selfless service accomplishes miracles.” Imagine this story being shared in a corporate world to inspire team building. I was in awe as I read the article.

Dear H2H team,
It gave me total bliss.....I felt as if Swami was talking to me face to face...wow!
I also like the inspiration page very much......
Keep up your excellent work....God bless!
With love and light,
After visiting the exhibition “Prema Jyothi” during Guru Purnima, it is such a heart filling experience to see it again at the internet, with a commentary which is:
With love, Aum Sai Ram,
Jaap van Setten,
I just finished reading the Prema Jyoti exhibition and would like to thank you so much for sharing this with us. It made me feel as if I was there watching the exhibition. I was so moved and overjoyed to read this.
Sai Ram to all involved in the new Exhibition.
It is a wonderful example to the whole world what can be done for the global harmony of the earth we are living on. It is really moving and exceptionally professional. Here in Australia we are experiencing the worst drought in centuries, and I know Swami is aware of all this.
Some people will be slow to come to terms with their innate divinity, and until then, we will have catastrophies. With the blessings and salutations of our Lord, we will overcome all hardships.
Thank you for the wonderfully inspiring articles, I always look forward to them, as they set the seal for my day. I am not the same without the inspirations you continue to send to me. I thank Swami for your hard work.
Yours in Sai,

The ‘Feature Articles: In Quest of Infinity by Prof. G Venkataraman’ are giving good insight into the matters pertaining to the universe from scientific studies. Such valuable information in the form of serial articles may not be ordinarily available. Though it is difficult to understand all aspects covered in these articles, on the whole it is very interesting. I would like to convey my deep regards to Prof. Venkataraman for sharing his knowledge in such a simple, free and frank manner.
With kind regards,
C. Venkata Ratnam.

I was thrilled to read this article. I have been reading your articles for the last three years. This is one of the best and it straight went to my heart possibly because we all are in similar situations as the author and pray to Swami.
Sai Ram Dear Members of H2H,
I really liked the article "Sai Krishna - The Enigmatic Enchanter". It's given me a new perspective about the Krishna Avatar and the inner meaning behind the pranks of our Sai Krishna, which call for introspection. Please do present more such articles from the students, I am eager to read them.
Thank you for this beautiful article.
I know very little about Lord Krishna but try to understand Him because I love Sai Baba. Your article came at a critical time for me. I am trying to surrender all to Baba. I just had a very disappointing, hurtful experience. I pray to Baba to free me of feelings of grievances and even spite. I just want Baba to know whatever caused it, I know it is His grace. I am thankful. Your article was the blessed coincidence that let me know Baba is hearing me.

Sai ram, Brothers at Radio Sai,
Sri Sanjay Sahini's message to the Youth at WYC was inspiring; He clearly reflects he is a Gold Medalist. It is very thought provoking message not only to the Youth but to every member in the Sai Organization.
Would appreciate to publish more of Sri Sanjay Sahani's speeches. Also if you can get the speeches by other Youth leaders at WYC published, we can see their approach, too, including Dr. Reddy's speech.
Thank you for sharing this article. I was an Institute student, at one point so when I read articles like this it brings back a lot of memories. Thank you once again.
Regards, Kanthi Ayyagari,

I read the interview with Padma Kasturi. Really I felt very happy. I am Indian but now we live in Singapore because of my husband's job. But everyday I spend my time with Radio Sai. I want to read more experiences of old devotees because we can learn valuable lessons from them.
I found the article "Conversation with Padma Kasturi" very inspiring as well as it helped me understand Swami's many ways of being in constant communication with us. Please publish more articles on these lines.

Dear H2H team,
This feature is very moving and very impressive. We all know about the many miracles of Swami, and have witnessed many. However, He always mentions that it is the transformation in our attitude that is the miracle to count. This young individual has gone through that process and has laid it out beautifully in this article. It is from the depth of his own experience. It is encouraging to us, who are still learning this discipline of surrender.
After reading this article, it has rekindled my soul. I felt that it was Swami speaking through him. It woke me up, and I must aggressively go on with my seva project I promised Swami when I was in Puttaparthi last month. Thank You for circulating this article.

Sai Ram H2H Team,
I would like to let you know that you're commitment, discipline and love shows through the Radio Sai website! I'm not one to usually comment or even browse through websites, but today I thought I'd take a "quick" look around! You see, I usually get the "thoughts for the day" sent by someone else and I read that and be on my way. But, today, my "quick" look took some pleasant "time" and turned into sadhana!
Your article about the Youth Coordinator from Croatia was very inspiring and uplifting to all who are yearning and putting forth the needed effort to transform our lives and putting into practice, Baba's Teachings!
It is a good article to share with center members, including the older youths of the SSE wing of Sathya Sai Baba Centers. I will definitely read/share it for our study circle.
I hope it will give them some perspective of knowing and hearing how others, like Youth Coordinator, Ivan Bavcevic, can implement 'spirituality into living' and be viewed as a "cool" person among their peers who are not necessarily Baba devotees but are devotees of God! This article applies to all and all can benefit from it! Thank you.
With Baba's Love and Blessings,
I was in ecstasy when I read Ivan's letter. Yes, I am inspired enough to follow what he has said and has to say. Thank you all at h2hradiosai for bringing this news to us in the USA.
Sai Ram. Loves.

Thank you for the Prashanti Diary! For senior citizens like us who are not able to make it to Prashanti Nilayam, it is a virtual treat to be able to have a glimpse into the events.
With pranams at the Lotus Feet of Swami,

Dear, dear friends,
Thank you so much for the Prashanti Diary. The commentary is so heart touching, the pictures are so beautiful and Swami's divine presence is so concrete...! Thanks for your love and devotional contribution, to all, who are living abroad. It really brings heaven on earth in the hearts and the lives of all of us.

Dear Heart2Heart Team,
Another wonderful and inspiring article. I have decided to share this article with many of my colleagues at work. This article touched the very core of my being so much so that I just wanted to leave what I am doing and work at the hospital even if it meant cleaning the floors. This is such a wonderful lesson on Selfless Love in Action.

Feedback on the Quizzes
Sai Ram, Brothers/Sisters,
It was nice playing quiz online with heart to heart. It is very interesting and gives us a chance to go back and recollect our sweet memories with Sai world. Thanks a lot. It’s a great effort from your side.
With Best Wishes,
These kind of quizzes are very, very good. We can learn a lot of other religions. How else could we learn about them without reading books etc. Happy to have discovered this possibility, thank you
Sai Ram Dear Radio Sai family,
Living in a very busy world, with literally 'no time' for anything, and after working for 28 hours, I opened up my mail. Finally some time to myself. Tried to glance through Swami's message for the day. I did not think that I will be awake enough to go any further with my reading.
But, the question ‘Which Do We Need More, SMS Or SMN?’ that has been put forward seemed really irresistible. And I was curious to know what SMN stands for.
As I go through your article, I see myself there....being nailed down....But I feel happy to see that part of myself undergo some change. Yes that's Swami's grace.
"No matter how busy we are, we should never allow ourselves to be so busy as to neglect the fundamental purpose of life"- All of a sudden the truth seems so simple and so obvious--- Thank you all for this precious minute.
Dr. Yamuna Sanil.
Your article on SMS or SMN was very inspiring. Everyone complains they have no time but we all have the same number of seconds in the day. We should get our priorities right.
Feedback on: Radio Sai
Sairam Radio Sai Team,
To be honest, the word 'Thank you' will not do justice to the seva you are doing. But, unfortunately this is the only word in English and I'm using it. Thanks a lot for your stupendous work you are carrying out in respect to Radio Sai and heart2heart.The programmes and articles are really helping me in one or the other way towards my goal of self realization. There are lots of lessons to be learned from various experiences, Chinna Kathas, discourses etc.
My humble request is kindly increase the on demand programs so that we can listen at a later times as it is difficult to listen live. I've asked earlier and I know it is really tough but am unable to hold back, please, please increase Telugu programmes. There is an enormous amount of Telugu audiences not just in USA but across the globe. So, it will be of great help to everyone. Also, please post more Telugu conversations by Prof Anil Kumar, Prof Gangadhar Sasthry etc. Kindly increase on demand interviews in English/Telugu. Thanks for your time.
Feedback on: Sai Inspires
Dear Radio Sai Friends,
Every time we go through the 'Thought For The Day' from the Nilayam, we are taught new lessons on spirituality. Also, Sai inspires brings us every day, Bhagavan's message as well as His beautiful photo enchantingly. Our memory is short lived and hence it is necessary for us to go through the messages more often so that it will get enshrined in our heart. Mundane things get lodged in our memory very easily, but the spiritual lessons take time to sink in our consciousness. In today’s thought, Swami has said 'everything happens according to God's will alone' - Hence forget the plans etc and leave everything to Him. He will get things done.
