Ganesh Chaturthi Celebration at Prasanthi Nilayam

Thousands of devotees on Thursday celebrated the auspicious Ganesh Chaturthi festival with much fervor at Prasanthi Nilayam.

In the morning, the students of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning offered a string of hymns attributed to Lord Ganesha. Singing special hymns propitiating the Lord, Who is hailed as 'Prathama Vandana', the students regaled the audience with devotional music for the next forty-five minutes. The musical offering had interludes of commentary in English and Hindi alternatively. After a forty-five minutes programme, students from Prasanthi Nilayam and Anantapur Campus sang bhajans for fifteen minutes before Mangala Arathi was offered at 0930 hrs.

In the evening, the students from Sri Sathya Sai Mirpuri College of Music, Prasanthi Nilayam, offered a programme entitled, "Naada Brahmarpanam". At the end of the programme, the musicians moved forward to the Mahasamadhi to offer their gratitude to Bhagawan. The forty-five minute programme was followed by bhajans before Arathi was offered at 1800 hrs.
