Press Release by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust

November 09, 2012


Globhal Akhand Bhajan will commence tomorrow evening (November 10) at 6 PM  at Sai Kulwant Hall and conclude at 6PM on November 11th .

The Global 24-hr. Akhand Bhajan started in 1944, in the home of the late Dr. R.S. Padmanabhan of Bangalore, where nine families met in the presence of Sri Sathya Sai Baba to conduct the bhajan. From that humble beginning attended by 150 people, this Bhajan is now conducted every year around the same time, at Sai centres all over India and in 126 countries in the world. This is in keeping with Sri Sathya Sai Baba's sentiments that he expressed during a discourse in 1986: "We are having non-stop 24-hr. global devotional singing by Sai devotees all over the world. This is being done not for the sake of one individual, one nation or one community. It is for the welfare of humanity as a whole."

This also  heralds the official beginning of the commencement of the 87th birthday celebrations of Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
