Akhanda Gayatri Chanting
If all humanity prays at one time for unrest, injustice, disorder, and falsehood to be transformed into peace, truth, love and mutual service, things will certainly become better.

Specific time slots are recommended for every Zone and are given below. Devotees can also join the chanting at any time. We urge as many SSIO members as possible, from all Zones, to participate in the first two hours and closing two hours of the Global Akhanda Gayatri chanting.
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 fulfills good desires. Gayatri brings peace to the individual, the family, the society, the nation, the world 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, Sathya Sai International Organisation
