Prasanthi Nilayam witnessed a regal Chariot Festival followed by a most enchanting Jhoola function accompanied by a Carnatic Concert by legendary Dr M Balamuralikrishna this evening, celebrating the 89th Birthday of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.

The Golden Chariot that The Lord mounted in 1997, fulfilling scriptural prophecies, was taken out in a regal procession today, at 1615 hrs., circumambulating the Prasanthi Mandir to the escort of Vedam and Bhajans. For the devoted thousands it turned out to be a rare spectacle, having ‘Suvarna Sai Darshanam’. Covering the Nagarsankirtan route, the procession finally entered the Mandir at 1700 hrs.

Grand Finale of the day, the ‘Jhoola Mahotsavam’ commenced at 1800 hrs. Legendary Carnatic Musician Dr M Balamuralikrishna regaled Bhagawan for over 80 mts. singing some of the most enticing Carnatic numbers, that included “Nagumo…””Pibare Rama Rasam…” etc.

 A capacity audience watched the evening turned twilight’s dazzling Jhoola-Musical spectacle. Mangala Arathi at 1945 hrs. marked the end of the grand festive day’s proceedings.
