But, when He chose to descend down in physical frame, He, with His supreme munificence, conferred upon humanity the heavenly boon to celebrate His Advent. 23rd November is the landmark in the Sri Sathya Sai Calendar… and over 4 decades the Sai fraternity has been joining together celebrating The Day of His Supreme Advent!
