2,200 devotees from Kancheepuram North and South districts of Tamil Nadu have come on a pilgrimage to Puttaparthi. They will be participating in all the devotional programmes at Prasanthi Nilayam on 9th and 10th February 2013.Out of the 2,200 devotees, 1,500 of them are visiting Prasanthi Nilayam for the first time.
They presented a bouquet of devotional songs titled “Nadopasana.” at Sai Kulwant Hall this evening.Starting on a high note with the famous Tamil devotional song, “Marutamalai Mamamaniye Murugaiah,” a song sung by the Carnatic classical music virtuoso Madurai Somasundharam , they followed it up many other famous numbers which included Telugu songs too.
The next programme was a dance performance “Kalinga Mardhanam.” What followed was another equally delectable dance performance “Sai Premaye Veda Saramu” by the students of Bal Vikas and Sri Sathya Sai Human Values Excellence. The latter was formed to uplift students from economically backward sections and train them on ethical values. The presentation based on the theme of Bhagawan’s Avatarhood, Veda Rakshana and Bhakta Rakshana (protection of Vedas and devotees). The crescendo of this performance was reached when a student dressed as Baba officiated a Yajna as Baba does on the occasion on Veda Purusha Saptaha Jnana Yajna.
