Serenading The Master Supreme…

In pursuit of excellence in their chosen field they perform, in their chosen field of music, singing their hearts out unto Him, serenading The Lord Supreme!!! This is the incomparable great good fortune of the selected bunch of musical students in Prasanthi Nilayam, Puttaparthi, the Holy Abode Of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai. Bhagawan’s Divine ‘sankalpa’ that resulted in the institution of  a musical college with varied specialities has been shaping up musical talents with strong devotional backdrop for the past almost two decades. Music is never an entertainment here in Bhagawan’s Presence, but a ‘Path Divine’, Sadhana-route enabling on to reach his True Truth.

Continuing with the sacred tradition the music fraternity of ‘freshening up’ talents at Sathya Sai Mirpuri College, SSSIHL – Dept of Music presented soulful musical offering, singing a string of devotionals supported by intermittent ‘awakening’ commentary at the Sanctum Sanctorum this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam.  Titled ‘Sai Swaranjali’, the offering began with a Saint Purandaradasa composition propitiating Lord Ganesha, set in Rag Hamsadhwani, Adi Talam. Voyage of man on earth in simplest terms, suffused with greatest wisdom, was the forte of Sant Kabirdas’s compositions. The next piece was a Kabir doha in four parts, set in for different ragas, packed with wisdom galore for the earnest ones. Not hiding their entreaties unto Bhagawan, to be worthy of His Love, they next presented a Sant Tulsidas composition hailing his Master as Garib Nawas, patron of the poor and downtrodden, praying for His mercy. A Hindustani Khyal followed next Deenan Ke Dukhhari Sai Mere in Rag Marwa…, a composition on Bhagawan entreating The Lord to grant Divine Darshan. Annamayacharya who was popularly known as ‘Keerthanacharya’ sung in devotional ecstasy many a compositios on his chosen deity, The Lord of sacred Tirumala shrine in Tirupathi. The concluding piece was one of Annamacharya compositions “Adivo Alladivo…”, serenading Lord Venkateshwara Sai.

Sri Sathya Sai Mirpuri College Of Music came into being on 20 November 2000, Divinely launched by Bhagawan.

Bhajans continued and the session concluded with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
