If all humanity prays at one time for unrest, injustice, disorder, and falsehood to be transformed into peace, truth, love and mutual service, things will certainly become better.

Sathya Sai Baba, Prema Vahini- Ch. 70

Goddess Gayatri

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Om Sri Sai Ram.

Please join us at https://www.sathyasai.org/live to chant the Gayatri Mantra with Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba for 24 hours, from 8 AM, 13 June to 8 AM, 14 June 2020. Times are Pacific Daylight Time (Los Angeles time) – please check your local time carefully. Specific time slots are recommended for every Zone, as noted below. Devotees can also join the chanting at any time. We urge as many SSIO members as possible, from all Zones, to participate in the first two hours and closing two hours of the Global Akhanda Gayatri chanting.

However, anyone can join the chanting without registering.

Gayatri is a universal prayer that is addressed to the immanent and transcendent divine. The Gayatri Mantra is sacred and is considered the mother of Vedas. It is non-denominational and can be chanted by anyone to illumine the intellect. Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has emphasized that chanting of the Gayatri Mantra is good for spiritual seekers everywhere, irrespective of nationality, race, religion, faith, and gender. Gayatri will protect us wherever we are. It also prevents and cures diseases, wards off miseries, and fulfils good desires. Gayatri brings peace to the individual, the family, the society, the nation, and the whole universe.

I pray to Bhagawan to bless us with devotion and dedication to chant this mantra with love and one-pointedness.

Jai Sai Ram.

Lovingly in the Service of Sai,

Narendranath Reddy, MD

Chairman, Sathya Sai International Organisation
