Kerala Youth Parthi Yatra and Sri O.S.Arun Concert

400 Youth from the state of Kerala reached Prasanthi Nilayam yesterday on a 3 day pilgrimage. Apart from listening to talks and sharing of experiences with Ashram elders, the youth also visited the various places of interest in the Global Township of Prasanthi Nilayam.

This evening there was a music concert by Sri O. S. Arun who began his music lessons under the careful ear of his father Vidwan O.V. Subramaniam. He is known for his sonorous voice that he wields with much confidence and musical personality and which he employs in tandem with his superior stagemanship. Sri Arun was blessed with the opportunity of performing in front of Bhagawan earlier during the Ati Rudra Maha Yajnam.

He started the concert with a classical Carnatic piece ‘Prabho Ganapathe…’ and ‘Narayana Narayana’ continuing with the Meera Bhajan, “Govinda…”, following it up with Vittala Bhajans “Ye O Vittalae’ and ‘Vittala Vittala’ interspersed with the beautiful Bhajan, ‘Antaranga Sai’. He concluded his recital with the Bhajan “Govinda Madhava”. Sri O.S. Arun was accompanied by Sri Hari on the Harmonium, Sri S. Ganapathi and Sri Nishikanth on the Tabla with Sri Kalai Selvan and Sri Freddie providing other side percussions. The Programme was followed by Bhajans and Arati. The artistes were honoured and Prasadam was distributed to all.
