In 1940, young Sathya walked out of the circle of friends and family,
of kith and kin, and He proclaimed " My devotees are waiting, I have
to attend to unfinished task".
The transformation of Puttaparthi into the present "Valley of Peace"
- Prashanthi Nilayam is a spectacle, which has never been, nor shall
ever be, witnessed in the history of humankind.
A village infested with snakes and scorpions, which was a few decades
ago accessible only by foot, bullock cart and horse carriage, now boasts
of its Sathya Sai Airport, well connected buses and trains from all
parts of the country.
The greatest transformation has been the blossoming of the bud of Puttaparthi
into a most beautiful and enchanting flower of Prashanthi Nilayam spreading
the fragrance of Peace and Righteousness, as it were, all over the Globe.
Prashanthi Nilayam has now become the Epicenter for intense spiritual
vibrations manifesting all over the world. It is truly the SPIRITUAL
CAPITAL of this age.
