Suprabhatham (The good dawn)

The Suprabhatam song prays to Bhagavan (Sri Sathya Sai Baba), in whom is manifest all names and forms through which man has aspired to express his experience of the Divine, to render each new day "Thava Suprabhatam", your good dawn.

Sai is the indwelling "charioteer" of every living conscious being and when the appeal is made to Him to awake to our agony, it is an appeal to one's own consciousness to become aware of His Being one's innermost reality.

The dawn or day-break which the devotee yearns for is the emergence into his awareness of the Sai sun dispelling the darkness of ignorance and the fog of doubt.

There is in every one the "Hrdaya-akasa", the inner sky where the intellect or "Buddhi" is the sun and the mind or "Manas" is the moon. "Hrdayam" means "the cool pool ("Hrd") with Him in it ("ayam"). Who else can He be than Sai? To experience Him, in however slight degree, is indeed the good dawn, the Suprabhatam.
