Swami's Birthday Celebration - 23 Nov 2011

The divine sounds of "Om" vibrated in the morning air at 5.30am on Nov 23, 2011.  Today is the birthday of our beloved Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.  After twenty "Oms", we proceeded with 108 Sai Ashtotharam Naamavali and bhajans.  Breakfast was served to all members after arathi.


The evening session for Swami's Birthday began at 6.30pm with screening of videos on 'His Life Is His Message' and clips of Swami singing bhajans and walking amidst His devotees.  At 8.00pm, the celebration proper proceeded with veda chanting, mantras and bhajans.

At the end of the prayers, Bro Thum, our chairman, gave a short talk on Swami's message and read extracts from the most recent copy of Sanathana Sarathi.

Refreshments was served after arathi.  An estimated number of 200 people attended the entire event for this year.
