Wednesday, October 1, 2008: The Devi Navarathri has begun at Prasanthi Nilayam with the Kalasa puja in the Mandir. Preparations are underway for the Veda Purusha Saptaha Jnana Yagnam which will commence in a couple of days. Bhagawan has been sitting onstage while the Vedam goes on for a few minutes over the last few days before going into the Bhajan Hall for bhajans. Today, He came for darshan a few minutes after five o’clock and moved around in the verandah and the Bhajan Hall before coming onstage at around 5.15. He sat there for nearly half an hour, blessing the Birthday boys and also the Iranian Primary School student who had come for Id blessings. Swami moved to the Bhajan Hall at 5.45 and the Bhajans began. He accepted Arati just after six and returned to His residence in the car.
