Two full rounds in the car, at a very slow pace, snaking His way through the assembly of devotees sums up this holy day’s darshan story in Prasanthi Nilayam. Bhagawan emerged at 1845 hrs. to go for a full round to come on to the verandah. During His round, Bhagawan paused a couple of times, interacting with some devotees that included a group of old students from Tamil Nadu, gearing up for a state level ‘Prema Bandham’ during this weekend.

Even as He reached the verandah, Bhagawan asked for Mangala Arathi and with Arathi on, the car moved past the verandah, to the gents’ side, going for a reverse round, returning to Yajur Mandiram at 1900 hrs.

Earlier, the bhajan session has been enhanced by the tiny tots of Primary School, who sang with great devotional fervour. A group of Badagas of the Blue Mountains, Ooty, has been camping in Prasanthi for the past three days, came on a Parthi Yatra. The Badagas, in pristine white attire coupled with typcial head gears, stood out as a special group in the Sai Kulwant Assembly.
