The dawn following Shivarthri

With the thousands assembled in the Sai Kulwant kept awaiting the auspicious sight of The Lord, time ticked past and bhajans prolonged with devotional intensity, this morning in Prasanthi Nilayam.

Rewarding the night long penance, Bhagawan arrived just after 0900 hrs. in the morning, out in the open, much to loud cheers from devotees. A quick round of darshan followed before Bhagawan arrived on stage. Bhajans continued till 0930 hrs. until Bhagawan indicated for Mangala Arathi.

Special Prasadam was ready and the ‘White Army’ of students swung into action. As blessed prasadam, tamarind rice and sweet pudding, went for distribution, Bhagawan sat on for the next ten minutes watching over the proceedings. At 0940 Bhagawan moved off, retiring for the morning session.

Earlier, before coming into the Sai Kulwant, Bhagawan headed towards Poornachandra Auditorium where thousands had assembled awaiting Divine Darshan.
