Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, out of His sheer love and compassion, envisioned to start a girls’ educational campus in the rural hinterlands of Dindigul, so that girl students can have access to quality education – both academics and spiritual, completely free of cost, which otherwise will be denied to these children, considering the economic background they come from.

On July 31, 2021, Swami started from Muddenahalli to Dindigul along with few handpicked guests. En route, Swami along with His entourage visited Mother Meenakshi’s temple at Madurai and paid obeisance to Mother Meenakshi and Sundareshwarar. That particular day, there was an overflood of crowd in the Meenakshi Temple, and hence the Goddess, out of the feeling of comradeship and courtesy towards the Divinity Personified Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, appeared to Him in His vision and requested Him to proceed to the Campus, where she will be waiting for His arrival.

Swami and His entourage travelled towards the Campus location at Batlagundu in Dindigul district, and reached there around mid-noon, where the Campus and its children stood like the decorated brides to receive with a little blush and much happiness, their Eternal Bridegroom – The Lord, The Divinity in the form of Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai. After a warm welcome by the students, staff and devotees gathered there, Swami, with His most selfless goodwill for all, inaugurated the Campus on August 01, 2021. He did not forget to pay His respects to Mother Meenakshi who confirmed Her presence in the Campus, and then went to the hall where the homā (fire ritual) was being performed and offered the pūrṇāhuti (concluding offering).

Swami graciously granted His darśana (auspicious sight) and saṃbhāṣaṇa (Divine Discourse) to all who had gathered. He, like a loving mother, spoke to the students of Sri Sathya Sai Meenakshiniketanam in Tamil as they don’t understand any other language other than their mother tongue. He made them understand the importance of education, especially for girl children.

He advised them to learn well using all the facilities of the school and use the knowledge acquired in service of the society in the coming future. Swami also emphasised teachers to take care of the children, as they are Mother Meenakshi herself in the form of students. Finally, at the end, Swami revealed His master plan by announcing that the Campus will grow to become an extension or branch of Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence, where students can learn right from Grade Six till Research.

Infact, due to COVID restrictions imposed by the Government of Tamil Nadu, the inauguration was done in a simple manner with a small gathering of people. Nevertheless, Swami’s most important VIPs (Very Innocent Persons) – the little children of the Campus and their most treasured Lord were there and that made the occasion truly memorable.
