GURU POURNIMA EVENING PROGRAM AT PRASANTHI NILAYAM - DAY 3
Russia's matchless devotion and discipline was once again on display! This was in evidence today, when a group of around 100 Russian speaking devotees, both men and women, assembled in Sai Kulwant Hall offering an evening of Russian Choir, marking the end of the week-long Guru Purnima celebrations, here in Prasanthi Nilayam today.
Men and women in disctinct colourful dress codes, men wearing white caps and women multicoloured flower bands, sang for forty minutes singing Russian hearts out presenting nine musical gems of devotion. Conducted by Ms Marina, the songs in Russian and allied languages were quite meaningful, and their English equivalents are... "People in Russia awakened..." "Swami guide us a real way...", "Boundless beauty of the Russian land", "Sai's Divine Love will save the world...", "No one can live without love...", "Swami's Grace will fill us with joy...", "Swami is our guiding light...", "Infinite field of the Russian soul..." and "Spring blossomed in the garden of my soul...".
The nine songs were followed by some Prasanthi Bhajans by the Russians, sung melodiously with great flair. The bhajans were: Guru Baba Guru Baba..., Mana Mohana Sri Nandalal..., Shankara Shiva Shankara Shiva Shankara Shambho....
This evening's offering was by Region 8 of Sri Sathya Sai Organisations - Worldwide, comprising of Russian and adjoining countries.
