The past Saturday and Sunday have been special to us Sai devotees all over the world on account of Global Bhajans of 24 hours held for world peace.Here is a report on the activities held at Bangalore West Zone, India.
Self with family made the best use of this annual bonanza by staying in the venue for a total 8 hours spread over two days.
The auspicious akhand bhajans of Bangalore West were held between 6 Pm Saturday to 6 Pm Sunday at Mahalaxmi Layout Anjaneya swami temple hall premises.Soulful Bhajans started at the right time with Ganesh and Guru and Devi bhajans following in tow from the voices of now well trained singers.
Each local samiti attached to the West Zone like Rajajinagar, Basaveswaranagar, Prashantha nagar and Vijay nagar was given 1 1/2 to two hours of time throughout the 24 hours in turns and there was smooth transition amid some scramble expectedly so as not to break the Bhajan vahini even for a single minute.
The Organizers had arranged Dinner and Lunch at the venue and everyone could partake Swami’s prasadam.The bhajans on Sai,Rama, krishna, devi, Narayana and Shiva were lilting , pleasing and some even haunting.There was a lot of divine energy released and circulated at the venue from the spirited following in the highly surcharged atmosphere.
It was Namasmarana par excellence. All men, women and children were drenched in the prema vahini of Swami for a relentless 24 hours.
SOME OF THE BHAJANS, WHICH SPECIALLY HELD MY INTEREST AND IMPRESSED ME INCLUDED:
Aao Pyaare Nayan Hamaare
Ram charan sukha daai bhajore
Pavan suta Hanumaan Ki jai
Akhand Jyothi Jalaao
Pandu ranga(2) viththala paheey etc
There was a small stint by a flautist who played the opening lines of his Bhajans on his flute melodiously but the following guessed the lines correctly and sang it normally.
It was a blessed and blissful circle of devotees who left the venue after the 6-00 Pm conclusion, full of gratitude and love.
