Endeavouring To Take His Message To The Masses…

The hagiography of Lord Sri Ramachandra is a timeless ‘intonation’ of one of the most sacred stories on the face of the planet earth, and for the entire creation. With its magical proposition of enchanting, enrapturing wisdom, the sacred Story-Divine from the Treta Yuga simply redeems even the worst of the afflicted, serving as the story-elixir. How about listening to the sacred intonation through the medium of Sai Bhajans in the immediate Divine OmniPresence Of Sai Rama HimSelf, reliving the same at the sacrosanct Sanctum Sanctorum in Prasanthi Nilayam?  

Prasanthi Nilayam witnessed the same this Sunday evening, Ramayana Through Sai Bhajans, an offering by the Prasanthi Bhajan Group commemorating the 20th anniversary of Sri Sathya Sai Media Centre, formerly Radio Sai Global Harmony. The ‘Voice Of Pure Love’ had its inception two decades ago, went on air precisely on 23rd November 2001 at the direct instance and blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Beginning on the right note heralding the glory of the Sri Sathya Sai Bhajan saga, the programme next meandered through the nectarous hagiography of Lord Rama, enlivening the epic at the Sanctum Sanctorum through the blessed medium of music. Lucid, enrapturing commentary flowed in tandem with the enlivening bhajan chords, transforming the session to enact the sacred story. Commencing with the epochal Advent, the sacred stream flowed on leading unto the grand finale of Rama’s return to Ayodhya and coronation. “Rama Rama Rama Seetha…” the Prasanthi Mandir Bhajan in His timeless voice echoed the precincts next, bringing an apt culmination to the hour-long presentation. The story-line had its base on the Rama Katha Rasa Vahini penned by Bhagawan in person. Enhancing the beauty, the backdrop LED display served as add-on, illustrating the epochal epic through colourful sketches.

The occasion also marked the 2nd anniversary of Sri Sathya Sai Bhajans Channel. The YouTube Silver Creator Award presented to the channel was subsequently placed at Bhagawan’s Lotus Feet. A couple of launches followed next, first Sri Sathya Sai Kids World, a YouTube Channel for the tiny tots followed by a dedicated new website (beta version), www.srisathyasaimediacentre.org. Into the 96th Year of Bhagawan’s epochal Advent, a dedicated 96th Birthday Logo was also released during the occasion. Managing Trustee of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Sri RJ Ratnakar, Director, SSSMC, Sri Sundar Swaminathan, and Team SSSMC were present during the occasion.

Sri Sathya Sai Media Centre serves as the ‘Voice Of Pure Love’ from Prasanthi Nilayam taking Bhagawan’s message of Love to every nook and corner of the world. The ‘Media Centre’ houses a state of the art audio studio, a comprehensively equipped video studio and a compact and elegant broadcast studio, helping the processing, fine-tuning, and airing of The Message Divine to every single aspiring hearts.

Bhajans continued and the session concluded with Bhagawan singing ‘Prema Muditha Manase Kaho…’ followed by Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
