SSIO Australia’s National Education Wing, together with the Regional and Centre Education Teams offered their first virtual Easwaramma Day celebrations at His Divine Lotus Feet on 10 May 2020 at 10:30 am AEST.
The purpose of this offering was to come together as one broader family and commemorate the most important event dedicated for SSE children in the SAI calendar, an event SSE children, parents and SSE teachers eagerly await for every year.
The 2020 National Theme for Easwaramma Day Celebrations across Australia was “Unity is Divinity”. The SSE students of Australia took the audience through a journey of exploration of the Unity principle and Unity at different levels as explained by our beloved Sathya Sai Baba.
The program consisted of: devotional singing by SSE children, address on the theme by Kamala Pandya (Former All India National Balvikas Coordinator), a documentary on Mother Easwaramma and presentations focusing on Unity at Different Levels being Unity at the Individual Level, Unity of Head, Heart and Hand, Unity in the Family, Unity at the Creation level, Unity of Faiths, Unity in the Society and Unity the Purpose of the Sai Avatar.
All who watched the Easwaramma Day program were truly touched and amazed to see the many creative ways in which each regional offering explored the theme of unity is divinity and highlighted the importance of practicing unity at different levels. As a nation we collectively pledged to our dearest Lord to strive to see SAI in all.
To coordinate, prepare and present between 190 – 200 children remotely within two to three weeks required many talented hands. And we saw the dedicated loving service of many SSE teachers, coordinators, parents, young adults and members who assisted in many different ways to bring this offering to life. It was heart-warming to see the passion with which the SSE children, young adults and adults across Australia worked together in a spirit of unity to bring this virtual offering to life during these very challenging times. The offering served as a source of comfort and joy during these challenging times and helped everyone reminisce on all the past Easwaramma Day celebrations they were involved in whilst paying our humble tribute to our Divine Mother and the Chosen Mother of our Lord.
The year 2020 will be remembered by all of us for many reasons and for the SSE family the memories of coming together to celebrate Easwaramma Day nationally and virtually will forever be etched in our memories.
The National SSE Wing offer their loving salutations and gratitude to our beloved Lord for having given us this blessed opportunity to experience His presence and love through this National Virtual Easwaramma Day Offering.
