Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Mandir, Moosapet, Hyderabad is one of the 99 Sai Schools where Prashantinilayam's new initiative Vidya Vahini is being introduced.The objective of Vidya Vahini is to bring the best practises of value education available to all secondary school children. The effect of such an initiative is evident in the presentation of the children from this school who presented a delightful Dance Ballet entitled Sri Sathya Sai Natya Malika this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Choreographed uniquely, offering a virtual ritual of Sri Sathya Sai Ashtotharam, the programme was interlaced with thematic dance sequences singing Baba's glory. The presentation that began with a Ganesha invocation continued with the Ashtotharam that was offered in phases, after every interlude. As the chants of Ashtotharam resounded in the vast Sai Kulwant Hall, the children danced gracefully to the tunes of beautiful songs, regaling the audience for an hour.
And when we were told later that this was their first visit to Prashantinilayam,their performance seemed all the more alluring.
Earlier, before the commencement of the programme, children along with organisers offered obeisance invoking Divine blessings. A brief introduction about the inception of the institution followed after which, Swapna, one of the students from the school spoke in brief reminiscing Bhagawan and His Love. Sai Ashtothara Likhita Japam done 1,17,000 by the devout children of the school was offered at Bhagawan's Lotus Feet before the commencement of the programme.
