Doubly Auspicious New Year Morning…

Doubly auspicious – with holy Vaikunta Ekadashi aligning with the advent of the New Year, Prasanthi stepped into the New Year joyfully, blissfully and Sai-Fully in the everlasting omnipresence of Beloved Bhagawan here today. It is believed that Vaikunta Dwaram or The Gate Of Lord’s Inner Sanctum is opened on this auspicious day for His chosen devotees. Twin programmes, by the Institute Brass Band and the University Alumni, marked the celebrations on the auspicious morning.

Commencing the programme, the ‘rollicking’ Brass Band of Prasanthi Nilayam played a fusion number with a mix of classical instrumentals, followed by some scintillating numbers delivering a short yet wonderful musical offering. Aptly titled ‘Dhadkan’ – Heart-Beat, the musical tribute turned out to be the whispering voice from within, of the student fraternity to Beloved Swami. The numbers included the famous “where do I begin?”, one of the evergreen songs from the West.

The final programme was an Instrumental Offering by the Alumni of the Institute. Playing with an array of instruments, Saxophone, Flute, Mridangam and Keyboard etc., the alumni with rich talent in their kitty, offered a garland of songs that included Nagumomu Ganaleni… Jaya Maa…. Jaya Maa etc.

Beautiful decorations adorned the Sanctum Sanctorum with the theme message for the epochal 90th Birth Year – “You Are Everything…”. Effectively, the morning session turned out to be an apt introduction for the grant entry into the 90th epochal year of Bhagawan’s Avataric Mission.

Bhajans continued and ended with Mangala Arathi at 0950 hrs.
