Twenty Four hours into its initiation, Akhanda Bhajan 2016 for Universal Peace came to a close at 1800 hrs. with Mangala Arathi this evening here, in Prasanthi Nilayam. Commenced at 1800 hrs. on Saturday evening, the Bhajans continued nonstop for twenty-four hours with men and women leading by turns, filling and fulfilling Prasanthi with unmatched spiritual vibrations.
Embracing Bhagawan’s ‘endearing presence’ with a final bhajans in His mellifluous voice, the glittering Sai Kulwant Hall turned engulfed in the Divine vibrations emanating from the ‘Intonation For Universal Peace’ all through the 24 hours. The concluding bhajan was "Giridhara Gopala...".
At the end of the Bhajans and Mangala Arathi, customary Prasadam was distributed to the entire assemblage of devotees. Swarms of students spread themselves across the spacious Sai Kulwant Hall, ably assisted by the Sevadal volunteers, distributing blessed Prasadam, tamarind rice and sweet pudding.
Adhering to Bhagawan’s injunction to chant the Food Prayer before the meals, students burst in to “Brahmarpanam…” joined by the audience before partaking the Prasadam.
