Global Akhanda Bhajan Commences In Prasanthi Nilayam…

Puttaparthi: A Ganesha bhajan at 1800 hrs followed by ‘Akhanda Jyoti Jalaao…Sai Mana Mandir Mein…’, a starving soul’s heart-wrenching prayer that seeks ‘The Divine Light Within’, marked the commencement of the annual Global Akhanda Bhajan this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam. 

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. When the pandemic threat and its after-effect are still prevalent, Prasanthi Nilayam is marching on joyously, embracing the call of the 96th Year Of His Divine Advent, which is coming up just after a week-time.

Come the second Saturday in November, and it is time for Global Akhanda Bhajan. 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. Devotees worldwide, year after year, join the marathon-bhajan saga round the clock, following respective regional timings.

With the pandemic restrictions continue, this year, the Sri Sathya Sai Global Akhanda Bhajan will continue to be a virtual affair like the previous year, effectively connecting the world around, over the world-wide-net.

Marking the grand commencement in the Divine OmniPresence in Prasanthi Nilayam, the Bhajans began at 1800 hrs and is scheduled to continue for 3-hours until 2100 hrs IST.

Various Indian states will continue the intonation then on through live streaming via the webcast of Sri Sathya Sai Media Centre, making it a unique one of greater unity. From midnight, International blocs will join the streaming until the following day at 0800 hrs, when Prasanthi Nilayam will come back live for another three-hour intonation. Live streaming with the Indian states will continue until 1600 hrs tomorrow, until the final two-hour schedule featuring live streaming from Prasanthi Nilayam.
