Puttaparthi: Prasanthi Nilayam’s marathon spiritual sadhana with the call for universal peace and harmony, Global Akhanda Bhajan 2020, commenced at 1800 hrs here, setting in motion a unique virtual global event for the next 24 hours. 

Life is a challenge; meet it, thus spake Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai. Challenging the oddities of life is what Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai has always preached to humanity.  At a time when the pandemic threat and its after-effect of social distancing are prevalent all over, Prasanthi Nilayam is marching ahead joyously embracing the call of The Divine Birthday that is coming up just after a week-time. Come the second Saturday in November, and it is time for Global Akhanda Bhajan. Ever since its inception over a quarter-century ago, at Bhagawan’s ‘direct’ instance, this timeless spiritual sadhana of intonation for universal peace has been a fixed schedule in the Prasanthi festive calendar for the ‘Month of His Advent.’ Sri Sathya Sai centres in India and the world around year after year join the marathon-sadhana round the clock, based on the respective time clock.

This year with pandemic restrictions, the Sri Sathya Sai Global Akhanda Bhajan took a new dimension of ‘Unity In Diversity, virtually connecting the world around, over the world-wide-net.

Marking the grand commencement, Bhajans commenced at Prasanthi Nilayam this evening at 1800 hrs and will continue for 2-hours, until 2000 hrs IST. Various Indian states will continue the intonation then on, through live streaming via Radio Sai, making it a unique one of greater unity. From midnight, International blocs will join the streaming until the next morning at 0800 hrs, when Prasanthi Nilayam will come back live for another two-hour intonation. Live streaming with the Indian states will continue until 1600 hrs tomorrow, until the final two-hour schedule again featuring live streaming from Prasanthi Nilayam.

Apart from the live-streaming, world-over, many Sri Sathya Sai Centres and devotees’ homes will be joining the unique sadhana, following respective time zones. The Sri Sathya Sai Global Akhanda Bhajan is aimed at Universal Peace and Harmony.
