Shivarathri 2013 in Prasanthi Nilayam

Shivarathri 2013 witnessed auspicious Lingabhishekam to the sanctified Sayeeshwara Lingam this morning in Prasanthi Nilayam that was followed by a relay of Divine Discourse and commencement of Akhanda Bhajan this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

The proceedings began at 1610 hrs. with a procession carrying the “Sayeeswara Lingam” to the venue in Sai Kulwant Hall to the holy chants of Vedam. Mounted on an elevated platform, the Lingam that was sanctified during the Ati Rudra Maha Yajna in 2006 in the immediate Divine Presence of Bhagawan was the centre of attraction for the evening.

Ritualistic proceedings and Abhishekan continued with the Chief Priest Prof Nanjunda Dixit officiating the proceedings. Beginning with Maha Ganapathi Puja, milk, curd, ghee, honey, sugar, turmeric, vibhuti, kumkum, mixed fruit, bilwa leaf, lotus flower, rudraksha were offered to the Lingam followed by Arathi after every offering. Sanctified water from sacred rivers of India were also offered to the Sayeeshwara Lingam as part of the ritual.

Sri Sathya Sai Sahasra Namavali chanting followed with flower offerings at the Lingam before Mangala Arathi offering to the Lingam. The entire proceedings were conducted by Prof. Nanjunda Dixit who officiated the Ati Rudra Maha Yajnam in 2006. The Lingabhishekam is aimed at Universal Peace and Global Harmony.
