Guruji Dr. Satpathy captivated the audience through his speech. He spoke about the strong cultural identity of the Telugu community, which is as strong at home in India as it is abroad. He emphasized equality and welcomed all to the umbrella of Sai Baba, regardless of gender, caste or any barriers.
He emphasized the sacrosanct relationship of unconditional love that a mother has for her child, a bond that starts in the child’s first moments, and continues through his/her lifetime. Mother could be perceived as the first Guru of any child.
Guruji also spoke about the qualities that a disciple must have. He cautioned that the relationship between a disciple and the guru is more a bond of love and requires gentle nurturing, rather than path of blind devotion.
