World Conference Evening News from Puttaparthi

Swami came for the evening program at appx 4.p.m.A Choir concert of international standard, representing over 42 countries, performed by appx175 devotees captivated the heart and soul of all the devotees present in Kulwant Hall and without a doubt they charmed the Lord Himself. Taking a clue from Swami’s facial expressions and hand - Swami was enjoying each and every song, His hand responding to the rhythm of the songs.  


The men and women devotees from international/world choir performed in Kulwant Hall while Swami watched the performance from mandir veranda sitting on His movable throne.  After the choirs songs praising the Lord ended, the bhajans in full swing started doing exactly the same but in Indian languages and together with the participation of all the devotees in the jam packed Kulwant Hall.  The world conference evening programme of today ended after that. The crowds of devotees after the program rush to the food stalls, canteens etc. to enjoy the free food. The ambiance of Ashram is enchanting. Also, there is high degree of discipline in most of the visiting devotees and Sevadal is doing a remarkable job of controlling the huge crowd of devotees with a smile.  We’ve been told that even the corridors of the apartments are reserved and are used for accommodation. Outside the Ashram on the main road and adjacent roads it is jam packed with devotees from all over the world. It’s quite amazing to watch this continuous rush of people in comparison to the normal days at Puttparthi. Many shopkeepers anticipate earning their entire years income during this week.  Puttparthi is experiencing one continuous celebration; lets all rejoice the 80th advent of our Lord. - SBOI

International Choir - 20th November 2005 (Evening)

You would have already read from our earlier update about the inauguration of World Conference of Sathya Sai Organisations. Plenary sessions of the Conference were held in Sai Kulwant Hall in the afternoon for Indian delegates and on a special Pandal erected near the North Blocks for overseas delegates. In the evening, Bhagawan arrived in Sai Kulwant Hall for Darshan at 4.00. Sai Kulwant Hall was filled to its brim and one could see people craning their necks to have a glimpse of the Lord. The centre of the Hall was occupied by members of the Sai International Choir waiting for the signal from Bhagawan to start their programme. 175 members from 45 countries had put in unstinted efforts for the last few days to make this programme a grand success. One could see their members practicing in small groups at different points in the Ashram. As soon as Bhagawan sat on the dais, He indicated for the programme to begin. The musical feast was set off with a vibrant song to mark the joy of celebrating Bhagawan’s birthday. The 175 member strong choir consisting of singers and instrumentalists produced such wonderful synthesis of musical notes in perfect harmony resulting in soothing symphony that the Hall resonated with mellifluous music. It seemed to touch the chords of everyone’s heart. The veritable musical treat ended with a song of gratitude to Bhagawan for this great opportunity. The huge concourse of devotees gave a thunderous applause for treating them to a wonderful display of music. Bhagawan was so impressed with their performance that He asked them to continue even after they had sung their planned 10 numbers. The choir sang two more songs after which Bhagawan went inside the Bhajan Hall and sat for Bhajans till 5.35 p.m. The day’s proceedings concluded with Arati to Bhagawan.
