The Night - long vigil of Akhanda Bhajan commenced in Prasanthi Nilayam late this evening on February 17. The Akhanda Bhajan, singing His glory, will continue till 06 00 hrs tomorrow morning (18 02 2015).

Maha Rudrabhishekam was offered to Saieeswara Lingam at the commencement of the event. The Maha Rudrabhishekam consists of 18 types of offering. The offerings included Milk, Curd, Ghee, Honey, Sugar, Fruits, Tender Coconut Water, Flower, Yellow Rice, Sandalwood paste, Vibhuti, Bilwa, Sugarcandy juice, Rudraksha, Darba, Gold, Turmeric and Kumkum etc.,  with each individual offerings bear spiritual religious significance. These 18 offerings are meant to appease the in-dweller within, who is verily Sai Shiva.

Sai devotees recalled Bagawan Sai Baba’s teaching on Sivarathri:  “Rathri means night, signifying darkness. Shiva means auspiciousness. 'Shivarathri' signifies auspiciousness which is inherent in darkness. It refers to the wisdom which exists in the midst of ignorance. Wisdom and ignorance are not two different things; they are essentially the same, opposite polarities of the same underlying principle. The state that transcends both wisdom and ignorance is Divinity, Paratatva. This Shivarathri is a day when one tries to establish friendship between mind and God. Shivarathri reminds everyone of the fact that Divinity is all-pervasive and is to be found everywhere. It is said that Shiva lives in Kailasa. But where is Kailasa? Kailasa is our own mind full of joy and bliss. It means that when you develop purity, steadiness and sacredness from within, your heart becomes filled with peace and bliss, and ultimately your heart itself is Kailasa.”
