NAMASANKEERTANA THE ULTIMATE SADHANA FOR LIBERATION:
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba at the tender age of 8 years proclaimed … हरेर् नामैव हरेर् नामैव हरेर् नामैव के वलम् कलौ नास्तयेव नास्तयेव नास्तयेव गततर्याथा Which means, except singing the name of God there is no other way for liberation in Kaliyug? This Divine message has touched every heart and today Namasankeertan has spread over 200 countries and is guiding the people of the world to dedicate themselves to the path of Love and Selfless Service to establish everlasting world peace. This spiritual awakening transcends all barriers of caste, creed, religion and brings the people of the world into one family as per the dictum “वसुधैव कु टुम्बकम
Genesis of 1008 Bhajans:
After offering 108 Bhajans based on Sri Sathya Sai Ashtotram on the occasion of 90th birthday of Bhagawan in 2016, a small group of devotees, lead by the Navi Mumbai District Bhajan Co-ordinator Sri J Jayakumar, were contemplating to offer a Mega Event of Bhajans, with participation from multiple cities. With this idea of hosting a Mega Event at Sai Prem, what would have been better than weaving the same around Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Sahasra Naamam (1008 names)?
