THEIR GENESIS AND FIRST PRESENTATION IN PRASANTHI
The Sai Pancharatna kritis are special carnatic compositions on Sri Sathya Sai Baba by renowned composer Mr. Raj Kumar Bharathi. The lyrics were done by Mrs. Vasanthi Lakshmi from Sri Sathya Sai Mirpuri College of Music.
These kritis have been sung on Aradhana Day (April 24) every year in Prasanthi Nilayam since 2015.
The story of how this beautiful endeavour started and how Bhagawan worked His magic in His own inimitable way is simply marvellous.
I captured some of this in my conversations with C G Sai Prakash and Balarama Chandran.
