Prasanthi Today

Prasanthi Nilayam, the Abode of the Ultimate Divine, wakes up with the chanting of Aumkar 21 times at 5:20 a.m in the Mandir, followed by Suprabhatam (invoking the Lord of Parthi). Vedic chanting by a small group of selected devotees, starting from the Mandir, and after circumambulation of the Mandir and Bhagawan’s Residence, culminating at the Ganesh Mandir. Simultaneously, Nagarsankirtan (devotional bhajan singing around the Mandir) by ladies and gents in two separate groups, one followed by the other starts from the Ganesh Temple, almost following the Veda chanting group, and, after circumambulating Mandir and Bhagawan’s Residence, returns to the same spot at the Ganesh Mandir.
