An event filled day beckons

29th June 2012, the 53rd anniversary of the Meditation Tree will also witness another epochal event.  Lord Ganesha Who witnessed scores of interactions between Bhagawan and His devotees from the  coveted spot directly behind His throne will now welcome devotees who enter through the Gopuram gate, with a friendly familiar glance to the long timers and a warm smile welcoming the new pilgrims, conferring blessings.

The idol will be installed at 0530 hrs. in the morning. Later at 0945 hrs., after the Mangala Arati in Sai Kulwant Hall, there will be a special function at the Vata Vruksham or Meditation Tree. Read more about it here. The Tree stands on the road leading to the Administrative Block of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning and the Sanathana Samskruti Museum.

Additionally, a new side gate has been introduced next to the existing Ganesh gate opposite Chitravati Road which will be operational from 0815 hrs. for the convenience of devotees who exit Ashram by foot.

Also, the Mandir timings will revert to the traditional hours of 1630 hrs. to 1800 hrs. from the summer timings of 1700 hrs. to 1830 hrs. from tomorrow.
