Sri Sathya Sai Vrindawith Love, at His service

Christmas Celebrations – Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli – December 26, 2018

The final day of Christmas celebrations began as Bhagawan entered Premamrutham whilst Bhajans were in progress around 6:30 p.m. While walking amidst all those who had gathered, Bhagawan blessed all those who had selflessly worked over the past few days, with tokens of His love. After He had taken His seat, the celebrations began with a musical offering by devotees from the Russian Federation of countries, including Russia, Belarus, Lithuania and Bashkiria. They presented a bouquet of nine songs in the languages of Russian, Lithuanian, English and Bashkir. Their upbeat and energetic performance which also included some dances, indeed uplifted the spirits of all and carried the spirit of Christmas love and joy.

Then, upon Bhagawan’s command Sister Mira Levchenko rendered a song which she had composed and written in Russian on her unending love for Bhagawan. Sister Mira is a professional singer who has been teaching music to children in orphanages for the last twenty years. Thereafter, Bhagawan profusely blessed the group and after gifting them tokens of love, took pictures with the choir members.

The next musical offering for the evening, was by Mr Cass Smith. Hailing from the USA, Mr Smith is a self-taught musician who first came to Bhagawan in 1981. On Bhagawan’s command, he along with his wife, moved to India and they now reside in Muddenahalli. Accompanied by musicians from various countries, Mr Smith presented five songs including his own composition, the ever-green ‘I Keep Feeling Your Love In Me’. After the performance, Bhagawan blessed Mr Smith and his wife along with all the musicians. Mangala Arati was then offered to Bhagawan and Prasadam was distributed to one and all, thus concluding a grand and glorious Christmas 2018.
