Vishu, the Kerala New Year, was celebrated with traditional gaiety and devotional fervor in Prasanthi Nilayam today.
The morning function was marked by a devotional rendering by noted singer Sri TS Radhakrishnan.
In the evening, the session was marked by a speech, by Hon’ble Justice Sri Thottathil B Radhakrishnan of Kerala High Court followed by a musical offering by noted playback singer Sri Madhu Balakrishnan and Company.
Supplementing with the much required impetus Bhagawan's Divine 'Vishu' discourse was then played on the public address system next. Bhagawan delved in detail of the transitory human life, exhorting to lead an ideal life taking God's Name always.
Vishukkani, the auspicious sight, symbolical with reference to the prospect of the New Year, was arranged with traditional touch at the Sanctum Sanctorum marking the holy occasion. Back in the State, Vishukkani is unveiled in all temples, including the famous Guruvayur Shrine, in the early morning at the auspicious Brahma Muhurtham.
A sizable contingent of devotees from the State joined this year’s Vishu celebrations in Prasanthi Nilayam. A Youth Camp was also organized on the sidelines of the festivity, attended by hundreds of Sai Youth from the State.
