‘The program of devotional singing continuously done all around the world in all lands has, therefore, spread the message of love through the Names of the Embodiment of Universal Love (God). It has saturated the atmosphere with the thought of God and of the peace and joy He showers. The devotional singing that you have done here has affected not only this particular area and its environment, but it will transmute the entire atmosphere. Continue this attitude of devotion and humility, of service and tolerance and the atmosphere will not be polluted by hatred. – Sathya Sai Baba, 14.11.1976
