CHRISTMAS AT PRASANTHI NILAYAM

Morning Programme

 Christmas at Pasanthinilayam is always unique--less of pomp and more of devotion,less of celebration and more of joy.

 The Australian devotees began at the 'day-break' with  some soulful Carol singing  Following the day-break offering  and after Rudram chanting, first to come was an offering by the Violin Band of Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School that played some melodious Christmas tunes including "Love Is My Form...

Lifting the spirits from the slow soothing violin to the fast paced beats of percussions, the Institute Brass Band  then presented a scintillating display of Band Music next, playing an array of special Christmas numbers. 

It was then the turn of the students, who with a sprinkling of Christmas hymns and stories made the morning most memorable.. Serenading the Mighty Heavenly Father and His Chosen Son...singing greater glory, the Institute Music Band presented a 45 minute programme next, depicting the life of Jesus through songs and commentary, beginning with his birth, traversing through his epochal life of events, teachings andhis ultimate sacrifice. Some of the songs were We Wish You A Merry Christmas..., Glory To The Lord..., Santa's Party etc. Excitement ran high when Santa began his party, twin Santas in twin directions delivering chocolates to the lucky ones, to the backdrop high-pitch singing of Jingle Bells...Jingle Bells...Jingle All The Way... The musical band ended their 'party' aptly singing the glory of Father and Son and the greater importance of following the life of Jesus, practicing his teachings.

Even as bhajans continued, students, both juniors and seniors took their turn offering Christmas Greetings to Baba..
