Granting an early darshan Bhagawan arrived at 1805 hrs. to soulful tunes this Saturday evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam. As He moved past the pathway at a slow pace many received His blessings that included the birthday beneficiaries, both senior students and the little

ones from Smt. Easwaramma English Medium School. Distinct voices of the ‘little one’s’ from the school were heard, who sang with great enthusiasm. Coming on to the Verandah Bhagawan continued with His blessing spree as a couple of devotees earned His diligent attention.

Ascending the dais at 1830 hrs. Bhagawan got Himself busy with the ‘day’s mail’ for the next twenty minutes. Even as He completed the same, Bhagawan beckoned one of the senior bhajan singers on to the dais conversing with him for sometime. At the end, Bhagawan blessed the ‘student’ with a materialised golden chain.

It was time for Mangala Arathi. At 1900 hrs. Bhagawan accepted Arathi before blessing the assembly and retiring to Yajur Mandiram at 1905 hrs.
