This director's technical mastery and artistic eye have given us a worthy setting for the most enchanting miracle Swami has blessed us with in recent times - the Creation of the Golden Lingham. The fervent bhajans of Mahashivaratri night set the scene as Swami first walks among the devotees and then dramatically produces the Golden Lingham.
A joyful celebration of bhajans and Divine Discourse translated by Anil Kumar; Swami's sweet voice unaffacted by the passing of the lingham minutes before. The film finishes with some beautiful close-ups of Swami blessing individuals in the crowd and walking gracefully about, to majestic music, in the glowing light of dawn.
A radiant film to treasure for generations.

It is an auspicious day in the Hindu calendar earmarked and dedicated to the great Veda Vyasa who collated the Mahabharatha which had earned him the status of a world preceptor. So, this day is aptly chosen by one and all to fondly remember and pay obeisance to one’s Guru. The day has now assumed unique importance because of the physical presence of the Avatar of the Age, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in whom the world has both the Lord and the Preceptor.

“You are making various efforts to experience Divinity. Do not search for God outside. He is in you. Everything is in you. All you see outside is illusory. Do not be carried away by the illusory world. Only then can you attain peace and ultimately realise the truth “I am I”. To know the simple truth, you need not go through various sacred texts. Keep the texts aside. Enjoy the taste of divinity within. Develop inner vision and visualise your true self.”

147 - Being with Baba “The Gopi Brigade”* This is a DVD only.
A Film about Sathya Sai Baba by James Redmond.
A group of Baba’s women devotees meet to share some extraordinary experiences with Him in the early days. These devotees formed one of the first group of Westerners to spend time at Swami’s ashrams in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They talk about a golden time before the great crowds of today, when sometimes there were only 100 to 200 people during darshan and close, frequent contact with Baba was possible.
One of the “Gopis” actually lived on the ashram in Puttaparthi with her family for many years. There is a lot of laughter and lively discussion as their reunion stimulates ever more vivid memories of Swami and we recall Swami’s words about satsang being like the coals being in contact with the Fire.
This film was taped in June 1996 at the Feather Pipe Ranch in Helena, Montana, U.S.A.
This DVD is approximately 1 hour and 8 minutes

A Film about Sathya Sai Baba by James Redmond.

One of them, Howard Levin the author of “Good Chances”, tells some unique and very funny stories, and the man who wrote “Love is my Form” describes how Baba inspired him. As they speak, we can see the love and reverence Baba inspired in them still glowing in their faces. It is said that if you really want to see the Lord you will find Him in the eyes of His devotees.
