As a lead-up to the anniversary of the birth of Sathya Sai Baba, an annual event of 24 hours of continuous singing of devotional songs for 24 hours is conducted worldwide units of the SSIO. The event this year commences 6.00 pm on Saturday, 9 November and ends 6.00 pm Sunday, 10 November.
The spiritual vibrations produced by devotional songs (Bhajans) confer great joy both on those who sing them and on those who hear the songs. The songs remove all negative thoughts, soothe the nerves, purify the mind and fill the body and the heart with sweet love for the divine. As one sings … the mind is saturated with God Consciousness and a great ecstasy wells up from within. No mental or intellectual effort is called for, as there is no need to understand anything while uttering the holy names of God and singing His glory. The singing and the atmosphere created … takes one beyond the realms of the body, mind and intellect and helps to establish communion with the Higher Self (consciousness) within. Therefore, singing … becomes a beautiful and blissful experience.
The SSIO is a spiritual organisation drawing its members from many faiths. It honours all faiths and the names given to the One by them throughout the world. The devotional singing thus glorifies God by those various names. It starts at 6.00 pm in local time for each country resulting in a wave of devotional singing sweeping around the world. The singing is dedicated towards promoting, peace, harmony and bliss throughout the world and bringing the singers into closer communion with the Divine.
Groups throughout Australia will be conducting the singing in various locations and possibly for differing duration. Please refer to flyers posted below for local details or make enquiries with your local Sai centre found from the ‘Locations’ link on the Home Page.
All are very welcome to participate in this energising and joyful experience. Individuals are free to come and go as they wish during the 24 hours although some groups may have specific time slots allocated for them. Please refer to the contacts on the flyers for the individual events for further information.
