This Sunday, we will start off with Unison Bhajans and following the bhajans we will offer 21 Gayatri Prayers chanting as part of 1008 Sadhana.
Sathya Sai baba says “It is not easy for the human mind, immersed in worldly concerns to turn to God. It is only when the mind is transformed and brought under the control of the Soul (Atma) that the body experiences Divine Bliss (Ananda). The means by which the mind is transformed is devotion (Bhakti – intense love for God). Progressively, turn your mind towards God until it merges in God. Meditation, repetition of the names of the Lord, group singing of devotional songs (bhajans), reading of scriptures and other such activities are designed only to purify the mind so that it can concentrate on God. As a field has to be properly ploughed and prepared for sowing so as to reap a good harvest, the field of our heart has to be rendered pure and sacred through good and holy actions and spiritual discipline (sadhana) if it is to yield the fruit of Divine Wisdom.Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.17/Ch.17
As part of our Aradhana Mahotsavam we will be showing our gratitude with Special UNISON Bhajans (Atleast One Bhajan Per Family). We will have Unison Family Bhajans from 10 AM with all lead singers (per family) coming together to offer a bhajan to Swami. Our Devotional Coordinator Br. Amit Palicha, has reached out / will reach out to all the families. At this time the goal is to have every family offer at least one bhajan as their offering to show their gratitude.

1008 Sadhana Offering 21 Gayatri Prayers chanting during center meeting on Sunday, April 17th, 2022 @ 10 AM
“The purpose of life is to know one’s own self”. Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) helps us to understand the questions,
“Who am I? | From where did I come? | Where am I going to? | How long I will be here? “
1008 days of sadhana program is to practice sadhana. Sadhana (Spritiual Practice) will help us to reach our goal of spiritual realization. Once you start practicing something, eventually that becomes an habit where there is no need for any Sadhana offerings. There is no time limit of 1008 days as this is always a life long Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that all of us have to follow.
Note: This is an progressive Sadhana Offering that will cover an span of 4 years leading to Sri Sathya Sai Baba 100th Birthday Celebrations.
The 1008 Sadhana offering was launched (start of 96th Birthday offering (96 days leading to 96th Birthday)) on Thursday August 19th 2021. Please join as this is open for all Children, Young Adults and Adults. Where ever one may be, you can still follow the sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that will help you to answer the above questions. You don’t have to register to participate as it is Optional.
