Global Akhanda Bhajan commences…

Popular Sai Bhajan “Narayana Bhaja Narayan… Narayana Bhaja Narayan…” sung by Sri Sathya Sai HimSelf has a beautiful line of insertion, wherein He sings, “Sai Bhajana Sey Bhavasagara Ko Paarana Bhi Sikhaladiya…”. This line speaks in unlimited volumes of the supreme importance of bhajans in the modern Kali-inflicted age. It is this Sai Bhajana Sadhana in the form of 24-hour marathon Global Akhanda Bhajan that Bhagawan has presented to this world full of temporal proportions, to alleviate the suffering by reinstating peace.

Today marked the commencement of the Global Akhanda Bhajan 2019 here, in Prasanthi Nilayam. Simultaneously, Sai Centres around the world will be engaged in this 24-hour Bhajan Sadhana based on respective time zones. Bhajans that commenced at 1800 hrs this evening will continue for the next 24-hours to culminate with Maha Mangala Arathi at 1800 hrs tomorrow evening.

This timeless spiritual exercise, known as “Intonation For Universal Peace” had its commencement in the mid-forties and ever since, every second week-end of November has been the fixed schedule for Global Akhanda Bhajan.

This practice precisely had its beginning in 1944, in the home of the late Dr. R.S. Padmanabhan of Bengaluru, where nine families met in the presence of Bhagawan to conduct bhajans.

From that humble beginning attended by over 150 devotees, today it has grown into global scale, conducting bhajans every year simultaneously (at the scheduled hour based on various time zones) at Sai Centres in India and around the world.

Student fraternity from the Sri Sathya Sai institutions along devotees from across the walk are participating in the Prasanthi Nilayam Akhanda Bhajan, being presided over by the Supreme Lord in His OmniPresent form.  Let’s join singing in devotion, “Akhanda Jyoti Jalaao Sai Mana Mandir Mein…
