Divine Chants - Dharmakshetra - 25th November, 2012


From 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, the holy precincts of Dharmakshetra reverberated with Swami’s Sweet, Divine Voice as He chanted the Gayatri Mantra for His devotees. It

was played on an audio track that had recorded Baba leading the chant of the Mantra in Prashanti Nilayam after a discourse on the Gayatri. The devotees of Mumbai gathered in Shanti Deep to join their Lord in chorus of the chant. Bhagawan's voice inspired great enthusiasm and joy and all those who attended chanted full throated with such tremendous gusto that the sounds of the chant could be heard right outside Dharmakshetra! More than 18 months after the Mahasamadhi, this continuous connection with Sai, established by listening to His Voice and following His pronunciation and intonation, word for word, line by line filled all with the thrill of being in His immediate presence. It was as if we were physically with Him and He was holding our hands as we walked with Him on the Path of love. While every person who came to Shanti Deep left with a feeling of the deepest fulfillment for having met their Lord, we wish many more would have joined in to partake of this beautiful bliss!

Divine Chants

Listen to the Gayatri Mantra chanted by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

As you will notice in the music link above , the chant is being lead by Bhagawan Himself and the audience are following in much the same way as a Bhajan is lead and followed. Baba He often spoke of the Mantra's Divine potency in enhancing the material and spiritual success of man. Such was His Love for the Mantra that He had a Mandir built in Her honor and gave discourses exalting Her Spiritual Sublimity by very often referring to Her as the most powerful of all Mantras! We are all so fortunate to not only chant the Mantra in His abode but also have Him lead us with the perfect pronunciation and intonation of this sacred verse!

The outcome of any Spiritual Sadhana is wholly dependent on the intention behind conducting it. And our single minded intention on November 25, 2012 while enunciating this Mahamantra will be TO RAISE THE SPIRITUAL VIBRATIONS OF LOVE, PEACE AND HARMONY on Planet Earth.; Request you all to kindly communicate the same to all in your Samithi so that we may generate the maximum possible spiritual strength through the Chant. Also, the more the number of people who chant together, the greater the vibrations generated. That is why Bhagawan had begun the movement of group singing and chorus in Bhajans and daily group recitation of the Vedas in Puttparthy. Hence an earnest request that all attend this chant and be with us for as long as possible. May we all soak ourselves and Mother Earth in this sublime bliss.

Divine Chants

As a part of Bhagawan's 87th Birthday celebrations, a 12 hour Gayathri Mantra chanting has been organised at Dharmakshetra on 25th November, 2012. One hour has been allotted to each samithi. Chanting will start from 6 am by Andheri Samithi and will go on uninterrupted till 6 pm. The details and the table is give in the enclosed note. 6 to 7 will be Bhajans by the P and P+ Singers of all samithies .




Gayatri is Sarvadevata Swarupini and Sarvamantra Swarupini (embodiment of all gods and all mantras). It is said, Gayatri Chhandasam Matha, meaning Gayatri is the mother of the Vedas. There is no need to chant any other mantra if you chant the Gayatri Mantra. (Gayatri protects the one who recites it) …If you chant the Gayatri Mantra wholeheartedly, you will never face difficulties or hardships in life.” -BABA 10-02-2000
Prashanti Nilayam

Swami has recounted the above on numerous occasions. Thus as a part of the celebrations of the 87th Year of the Avatar we offer tribute to Bhagawan through this Divine Chant, done continuously for 12 hours with the intention of enhancing the Spiritual vibrations of the world to promote peace, joy and harmony. And for this, we shall follow the Gayatri chant in Swami’s own voice so that our intonation and pronunciation are perfect for this most powerful Mantra.
