The 12-hour nonstop Bhajan saga that commenced at 18 00 hrs last evening, after the Maha Rudrabhishekam to the Saieeswara Lingam, continued through the night with enthusiastic batches of students and devotees participating with much devotional zeal.
The Bhajans came to a close with twin numbers in Bhagawan’s mellifluous voice, “Om Shivaya… Om Shivaya” followed by the customary final bhajan, “Subramaniam Subramaniam”.
