Sai devotees observe Akhanda Bhajan

2017-11-16 06:01

SAI devotees around the world will observe the Akhanda Bhajan on November 11 and 12.

In Tongaat it will take place at Gokhale Hall 10 Plein Street from 6pm on both days.

The Akhanda Bhajan is observed by Sai devotees all over the world for full 24 hours in November. It is an annual event of global significance, starting from 6pm on Saturday and concludes at 6pm on Sunday.

The Bhajans (spiritual songs) start with the lighting of the Akhanda Jyoti (sacred lamp) that is kept continuously burning for 24 hours.

This programme of Akhanda-Bhajan continuously done for 24 hours all round the world in all lands spreads the message of love through the names of the embodiment of universal love. It saturates the atmosphere with thoughts of God and peace and joy that He showers.

The observance of Akhanda Bhajans (non-stop twenty-four hour global Bhajans by Sai devotees all over the world), is being done not for the sake of one individual, one nation, or one community. It is for the welfare of humanity as a whole.

The Bhajans that are sung permeate the ether in the form of sound waves and fill the entire atmosphere, thereby purifying the whole environment.

Singing with intense yearning for God and enjoying the experience of adoring Him, helps to purify the atmosphere. Man is forced to breathe the air polluted by sounds that denote violence, hatred, cruelty and wickedness. Therefore, he is fast losing the high attainments that are in store for him.

The vibrations of the Namasankirtans can cleanse the atmosphere and render it pure, calm and ennobling. It is with this high purpose in view that this programme of global Sankirtan was designed.

Bhajans have a place of pride in Bhagavan Baba’s spiritual Sadhana. Devotional singing in groups serves not only to concentrate the minds of the devotees on the Divine but promotes also a sense of spiritual unity and harmony among devotees.

The prayer to the Lord to light the lamp of wisdom and love in the heart of every devotee, when it goes up from millions of devotees all over the world, must have an ennobling and unifying effect which cannot be produced by any other means

The Akhanda Bhajan should make devotees feel their unity with the Divine and at the emotional level, and fill them with love for entire mankind. Bhagavan Baba’s supreme role in His present advent is to unify humanity by promoting recognition of the inherent divinity present in everyone, transcending all divisions of creed, caste, language, nationality and sex.

The Akhanda Bhajan is like a beacon and trumpet-call to humanity to jettison this pretty division of the past and rise to the heights of its divine destiny.
