Ashadi Ekadashi Celebrations at Prashanti Nilayam  :

Celebrating the auspicious Ashadi Ekadashi, devotees from Maharashtra & Goa presented a colourful morning studded with Dindi Procession, Ganapathi Dance and a Dance Drama entitled Master The Mind Be A Master Mind, today at Prasanthi Nilayam.

Consitent with the age-old tradition of Varkari Yatra to Pandharpur, hundreds of devotees arrived at the Ashram last evening after their Dindi Yatra from Dharmavaram.

Commencing the proceedings men dressed up in typical Maratha style, blowing the conch, carrying the palanquin of the deity,they  marched into Sai Kulwant Hall,  to the backdrop of the famous Marathi song, Hey Oh Vitthale Bhakta Jana Vatsaley.

A colour pageantry of Ganapathi Dance by the Youth from Nasik followed by a Dance drama entitled “Master The Mind,Be A Master Mind“by theBal Vikas children of Mumbai.

The presentation portrayed the plight of modern day man, who is confused, caught up by devilish mind, seeking the ephemeral, dooming himself to perdition. When the illusory mind dies, or is killed, light dawns upon him as Intellectual Wisdom prevails upon him making him realise that ‘he is in essence Eternal Atma and not the body as he is often deluded to believe.

The presentation was interlaced with colour dance sequences.Bhajans by the Maharashtra & Goa devotees followed before Mangala Arathi at 10:00 hrs.
