Global MahaParayan Presents - Bal Gurukul - MahaParayan for Kids

July 2017, we came up with concept of Global MahaParayan which was directed by our Sai Baba to Sai sister Pooja. Initially there was only one format of the Parayan, which transited to various other formats and about 3 lakhs of devotees joined in this venture making it A Global Parayan Hall! All formats of Parayan were inspired by our Sai Baba and today on Childrens Day we are introducing yet another format of MahaParayan "Bal Gurukul - MahaParayan for Kids". Following write up is by Sai sister Pooja describing her journey from a thought to execution of the Parayan.

We know by now that after continuous prayers for nearly 7 months, On 25th June 2017, Baba gave orders for Global Mahaparayan. Now, after a long time, Baba indicated to start Bal Parayan through an early morning dream on the day of Janmashtami - 24th August 2019. But this time, there were no prayers made to start Bal Parayan. I did not have, even the remotest thought of starting Bal parayan exclusively for the kids. Some kids are already part of Mahaparayan and are reading 2 chapters every Thursday. There are examples where 2 kids sharing one roll no and read one chapter each. So the thought never occurred to start Mahaparayan exclusively for kids. But really, His ways are His ways - unique and equally beautiful!

The Dream for Bal Parayan:

I was sitting in an old room, which feels more like a temple but has no idol or image of Baba as such. A group of people accompanied by several musical instruments was singing Sai Baba aarti. I was sitting there, and I think I was playing the dholki. The arti that was being sung was the Marathi arti ( Arti Sai Baba..Saukhya Dataar Jivha..). After some time, all were quiet, and I was singing the arti alone. Everyone present was saying that she knows the arti well, so please give her the mike. As they said that, I started thinking - “What was the use of giving the mike now as the arti was about to get completed?”

By the time I received the mike, arti got completed. Then with all my heart and soul, I started chanting loudly on the mike “Shri Anantkoti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhiraj Yogiraj Parbrahma Shri Sacchidanand Satguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.” Everyone was enjoying it and was also staring at me at the same time. I was also overjoyed with the positive vibrations that I had goose-bumps.
