Prasanthi Nilayam, September 7, 2011: Sampradaya Bhajans by Sri Vinaya Chandra Menon were conducted in the evening. Sampradaya Bhajan is a traditional bhajan singing, more popular in South India, and is handed down by one's ancestors and is considered to be the forerunner of modern day Carnatic music.

Prasanthi Nilayam, September 8, 2011: This evening, on the eve of Thiruvonam, there was a musical offering by Child Prodigy S. Mahadevan, a 12 year old from Kerala, who had performed across the India. The artiste presented six carnatic pieces.  Music Director from Kerala Sri T. S. Radhakrishnan then rendered a solo piece. The artistes were accompanied by Ananda Padmanabhan in violin, Uduppi Sri Krishna in Mridangam, Shankar Vinayakam in Harmonium, Sahayak on Tabla along with other talented musicians.
Prasanthi Nilayam, September 9, 2011:
Onam, Kerala’s most important and colourful festival, was celebrated with gaiety and fervour. The festival is celebrated as the day when the king who once ruled Kerala, King Mahabali, visits his subjects. In the morning, the visiting group from Kerala rendered soulful bhajans including some new compositions. In the evening, the Bal-Vikas children conducted Vedam chanting. Prof. Mukundan, President, Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations of Kerala, introduced the distinguished speaker for the evening, Sri K. Jayakumar, IAS, who is currently serving as Additional Chief Secretary, Government of Kerala. Sri Jayakumar said that Bhagawan showed what could be possible with a human birth by following His own dictum, “My Life is My Message”. By looking into His actions we should be able to understand what and how we can reciprocate for all that Bhagawan has bestowed upon us most selflessly. According to Sri K. Jayakumar, we need to focus on two things that Bhagawan has left on us to complete: Purification of the heart, and “Love All Serve All”. Children from the state presented a colourful dance drama entitled 'Krishna Kripa Sagaram'.
