Timeless Intonation For Universal Peace…

Devotional singing creates a link, a bridge between The Divine and devoted hearts. The emotion of earnest devotion awakens the soul to its own Divinity…the Absolute Union, when Bhagawan and the bhakt become One. This union of the Jeevatma in The Param Atma is undoubtedly the highest legacy of Prasanthi Nilayam.

Sri Sathya Sai Prasanthi Nilayam that is replete with legacies galore has a unique distinction of being the front-runner championing the cause of Universal Peace, Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu. It is with this aim and purpose that Bhagawan had initiated the 24-hour non-stop bhajan saga called ‘Global Akhanda Bhajan’ way back in the mid-forties. Ever since,  this ‘Timeless Intonation For Universal Peace’ has been a regular feature in the Prasanthi Festive Calendar, scheduled for the second Saturday in the ‘privileged’ month of November.

Today, on 11th November 2017, Saturday, Prasanthi commenced its marathon saga at 1800 hrs., being attended by a full house of devotees. Simultaneously, Sai Centres around the world will be engaged in this 24-hour Marathon Bhajan Sadhana based on their respective time zones. Bhajans that commenced at 1800 hrs this evening will continue for the next 24 hours to culminate with Mangala Arathi at 1800 hrs on Sunday evening.

This practice precisely had its beginning in 1944, in the house of  late Dr. R.S. Padmanabhan of Bengaluru, where nine families met in the presence of Bhagawan to conduct bhajans.

From that humble beginning attended by over 150 devotees, now it has grown into global scale, conducting bhajans every year simultaneously (at the scheduled hour based on various time zones) at Sai Centres pan India and around the world.

Truly, this timeless intonation is the Divine message for the age of Kali… Sarvatra Sarvakaleshu Sarvada Harichintanam. Akhanda is transcendental reflection to a lifelong Hari Chintanam.
