The Maha Shivarathiri celebrations commenced sharply at 0800 hrs at Sai Kulwanth hall with full exuberance of the Sai University Students playing Clarionet and Panchavadyam. This was continued with Sthothras on Lord Shiva and prayerful musical songs in Telugu interspersed with the commentary on the historical and divine 1963 declaration of Shiva Shakthi Avathaarhood by Bhagawan Baba.
The huge crowd of devotees floating at the ethereal grandeur for more than an hour, now descended to witness the release of the CD/DVD pack “SAI SYMPHONY” of the Spectacular Musical show on the 90th Birthday of Bhagawan Baba. After the introductory talk by Sri V Srinivasan, Trustee SSSCT, the Pack was handed over by Prof Sudhir Bhaskar, Director of Radio Sai to Sri K Chakravarthy, Trustee of SSSCT, who released the first copy.
Bhajans continued and Mangala Arathi marked the end of the proceedings of the morning session at 1015 Hrs.
