After a memorable and historic morning session, the evening’s celebrations began as Bhagawan entered the Premamrutham hall and glided amidst all who had gathered, showering His love and blessings on everyone. Senior students from the Nallakadirenahalli girls’ campus chanted the Narayana Suktam to begin the evening’s programme.
Bhagawan then released a book for the Growing to be God programme which is a programme of education for child development. Initiated by Bhagawan in 2017, this programme has now spread to many European countries, with Australia, Singapore and New Zealand preparing to launch the programme as well.
This was followed by a musical presentation by Sri Mandolin U Rajesh and Mr Dimitris Lambrianos. The duo offered a selection of beautiful compositions. Beginning with an offering to Lord Ganesha, they played various pieces such as Amrita Varshini Sudhamayi and Deep End. They also offered melodious renditions of well-known Bhajans and were skilfully accompanied by, Bangalore Dr V Praveen on the Mridangam, Bangalore Rajashekhar on the Morsing, Sri Praveen Narayanaswamy on the Tabla and Rishabh Jain on the Bass Guitar.
Thereafter, Swami felicitated all the musicians and accompanying artists with tokens of His love, after which Mangala Arati was offered to Him. Prasadam was then distributed to everyone before the Lord retired to His residence.
