Shri. Bandaru Dattatreya, the Hon'ble Governor of Haryana, shared his personal experience from his visit to Sai Ka Aangan, Gurgaon in August 2023. He underscored Dr. Satpathy Ji's multifaceted contributions to society, especially in guiding and inspiring the younger generation.
The event commenced on a splendid and enchanting note with a classical dance performance by Vaishnavi Sainath and her team, interpreting select songs from Shri Guru Bhagwat.
Dr. Satpathy Ji held the audience spellbound with his address, where he expounded on the robust cultural heritage of the Telugu community, a heritage that thrives both within India and beyond its borders. He underscored the principles of equality and extended a warm welcome to all under the inclusive umbrella of Shirdi Saibaba, transcending gender, caste, or any other barriers.
Dr. Satpathy Ji stressed the profound and unconditional love that a mother holds for her child, a bond that commences in the child's earliest moments and endures throughout their lifetime. In this context, a mother can be regarded as a child's first Guru. He also delved into the essential attributes a disciple should possess. He cautioned that the connection between a disciple and their guru is primarily a bond founded on love and necessitates careful nurturing, as opposed to being a path characterized by blind devotion.
