Grand Culmination to Akhanda Bhajan in Prasanthi Nilayam…

Prasanthi Nilayam’s global peace initiative, Sri Sathya Sai Akhanda Bhajan – 2017, culminated this evening at 1800 hrs with the offering of Maha Mangala Arathi. This timeless intonation for Universal Peace commenced last evening at 1800 hrs and ran through the night and day completing the 24- hour non-stop sadhana, spreading ceaseless vibrations enhancing the global peace quotient.

As the session continued from last evening, ceaseless potency of His varied Names reverberated the whole of Prasanthi precincts through and through, with thousands of hearts and mind aligned in prayerful, beseeching mode calling The One And Only Supreme Divine with ceaseless, matchless devotional fervour for one cause, as Bhagawan HimSelf had defined it long ago, Universal Peace.

Adding flavour to the matchless saga came the grand-finale, the final bhajan, in His mellifluous voice, singing “Giridhara Gopala…Hey Giridhara Gopala…”, played on the public address system.

At the end of the Bhajans and Mangala Arathi, customary Prasadam was distributed to the entire assemblage of devotees. Swarms of students spread themselves across the spacious Sai Kulwant Hall, ably assisted by the Sevadal volunteers, distributing blessed Prasadam, tamarind rice and sweet pudding.

Adhering to Bhagawan’s injunction to chant the Food Prayer before the meals, students burst in to “Brahmarpanam…” joined by the audience before partaking the Prasadam.

This initiative also marks the beginning of the Birthday fortnight, celebrating the Advent Day of Beloved Bhagawan.
