Sai Anandam, a Musical Presentation from UK

Bhagawan Who loves music, Who is verily Nada Brahmam Himself, was treated with a scintillating musical feast this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

As a part of the national initiative by the UK Sathya Sai Organisations, inspiring devotees to focus on Bhagawan’s ideals and teachings, a group of 46 devotees are currently in Prasanthi Nilayam on a national pilgrimage from 7 October till 27 October. Offering gratitude and love for Bhagawan, the group, Sai Jyothi, offered a classical musical presentation entitled ‘Sai Anandam’, comprising of Bhajans and Instrumental music, this evening in Sai Kulwant Hall.  Beginning with an invocation in Raag Yaman Kalyan offering salutations, the programme continued with some of the popular Prasanthi bhajans before reaching a crescendo with stimulating instrumental jugalbandhi, signifying the ascension of man to higher realms of spirituality.

Sai Anandam had Roopa Panesar on Sitar, Kirpal Singh Panesar on Tar Shehnai, Kaviraj Singh Dhadyalla on Santoor and Vocal and Gurdain Singh Rayatt on Tabla.

At the end of the one-hour presentation, the group was given a rousing round of applause by the evening assembly of devotees. As bhajans continued, the artistes were felicitated and Prasadam was distributed for the entire assembly. Bhajans ended with the Thursday Special “Madhura Madhura Ghana Muraleedhara Shyama…” in Bhagawan’s own voice. Mangala Arathi was offered at 1815 hrs.

Continuing with their presentation the Sai Jyothi group would be presenting a medley of English bhajans tomorrow evening at the Sanctum Sanctorum in the omnipresent Divine Presence of Beloved Bhagawan.
