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.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba, 14 November 1976

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Om Sri Sai Ram. 

The Sri Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSSIO) is happy to announce the online Global Akhanda Bhajans which is twenty-four-hour continuous devotional singing all over the world. The bhajans will start from 14th November 2020, 6:00 PM - 15th November 2020, 6:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (California Time). Please use the link to join the Akhanda Bhajans and sing aloud the glory of God that will charge the atmosphere with divine adoration. 

In His divine discourse on 21 April 1967, Swami says "For the major infection of asaanthi (anxiety), the course of treatment is bhajan." 

Prior to the program, the webpage will open at 5:30 PM 14th November 2020 with Darshan of Bhagawan, chanting of Sai Gayatri, and chanting of the divine name "Om Sri Sai Ram". All times stated here are Pacific Standard Time (California time). PLEASE CHECK YOUR COUNTRY'S LOCAL TIME CAREFULLY. 

Please see specific time slots for each zone to lead the bhajans. All devotees are welcome to join anytime during the 24 hours and enjoy the bliss of singing the glories of the Lord. 

I pray to Bhagawan to bless us with devotion and dedication to chant His name with love and one-pointedness.

Jai Sai Ram.

Lovingly in the Service of Sai,

Narendranath Reddy, MD.

Chairman, Sri Sathya Sai International Organisation.
