An excellent live coverage by Sanskar T.V covering the emerging of the Lingodbhavam 2004 at Prasanthi Nilayam. Kudos to Sanskar TV for their magnificent work and for making it possible for millions of devotees all over the world to witness this splendid event. The devotees of Sai can never forget this saga. Sanskar TV will go down in history as the pioneer of Bhagavan's instrument in the medium of Television. We hope that this excellent coverage will continue for all the events to come and hoping that they will work in tandem with Prasanthi Digital Studio in bringing about World Peace. The telecast started showing the background of past Swami's Darshan covering the time Swami did Abhishekam till very recent events at Prasanthi Nilayam
Baba wore a yellow robe this evening on the occasion of Shivarathri. Baba gave the Divine Discourse at around 5.15 PM
At 5.55 PM (IST) Baba manifested the Golden Shiv-Lingam into the white cloth which he had held so close to his mouth. He showed this Golden Shiv-Lingam to the entire crowd assembled here in Prasanthi Nilayam. To see Baba materialising the Golden Lingam was really heart-wrenching. He went through lot of pain and suffering. Seeing Him in that state upset me a lot. Baba after materialising the Golden Lingam went inside the Interview Room.
Anil Kumar thereafter announced that Baba had manifested two more Lingams.
Baba once again reappeared this time in a much better frame. Baba said that the Lingam had many phases, but he would not show us those phases because we would not be able to seen Him suffering. In order to give Ananda to His devotees, Baba was undergoing suffering. Baba gave a discourse and sang few Bhajans. Baba said - " That which is True, Eternal, Immortal is Linga. This Linga is Eternal, Immortal, Attributeless and Formless. " He also said that the Lingam was Golden because his students were Golden. He blessed His students and told them that He would always be with them. Amidst a lot of applause He stated that He would be alright and would walk on His own from tomorrow. He also said that nothing will happen to His physical body and no one need worry about his illness and that He was perfectly alright and normal. He had also announced that about 3 tons of weight had come out of his body and that He could not eat for the last two months and hence became weak. Henceforth he will now be able to eat properly and assured his devotees that he will show no sign of weakness hereafter
Swami retired to his room around 7 PM
The Sanskar program ended at 8 PM highlighting the emergence of the Golden Lingam time and again and also the events held at Prasanthi Nilayam earlier in the morning and afternoon of 18-02-2004.
Thus ended a memorable day in the company of our Lord thanks to Sanskar TV for this wonderful gesture, not forgetting to thank our Lord that nothing can move without His will.
