Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 33/Ch 04: Feb, 10, 2000
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Om Sri Sai Ram.
The Sri Sathya Sai International Organization (SSSIO) is happy to announce the Worldwide Akhanda Gayatri chanting with Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
The broadcast will consist of Swami's Darshan and His teachings for the full 24 hours with Swami's voice chanting the Gayatri Mantra. The significance of Gayatri Mantra can be found HERE
Significance: Gayatri is a universal prayer that is addressed to the immanent and transcendent divine. The Gayatri Mantra is sacred and is considered the mother of Vedas. It is non-denominational and can be chanted by anyone to illumine the intellect. Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has emphasized that chanting of the Gayatri Mantra is good for spiritual seekers everywhere, irrespective of nationality, race, religion, faith, and gender. Gayatri will protect us wherever we are. It also prevents and cures diseases, wards off miseries, and fulfils good desires. Gayatri brings peace to the individual, the family, the society, the nation, and the whole universe.
I pray to Bhagawan to bless us with devotion and dedication to chant this mantra with love and one-pointedness.
Jai Sai Ram.
Lovingly in the Service of Sai,
Narendranath Reddy, MD
Chairman, Sri Sathya Sai International Organization
Gayatri is the reliever of all diseases ("Sarva-roga nivaarini Gayatri"). Gayatri wards off all misery ("Sarva-dhukha pariharini Gayatri"). Gayatri is the fulfiller of all desires ("Sarva-vaancha Phalasiddhi Gayatri"). Gayatri is the bestower of all that is beneficial. If the mantra is chanted, various kinds of powers will emerge in one.
