“Devotional singing must be a felt experience. Together with melody and rhythm, you have to impart feeling to your singing to make the song a sacred offering to the Divine. A tune without feeling is an infliction. Giving up conceit and exhibitionism, you must sing in a spirit of humility and devotion. That is the right way to sing devotional songs.”
The Luton Sai Centre’s Spiritual activities includes
- Group Devotional Singing (bhajans);
- Study Circles,
- Other Spiritual Programmes.
Devotional singing is an important group spiritual exercise and is most vital for spiritual upliftment and progress of the individual. It is the gathering together of a group of people for the purpose of singing the glory of God. Sathya Sai Baba attaches great importance to devotional singing. Repeating the name of the Lord slowly changes character.
Devotional singing can create harmony within ourselves, as well as bring our own surroundings into harmony with the universe by being in tune with it. It modifies conduct, mellows and takes one nearer to the goal. The centre meets every month on the 3rd Friday for bhajan practise and has devotional singing on the last Saturday of every month except in August when the centre is closed for summer holidays.
During our monthly meetings, we also invite speakers and conduct study circles. Members are encouraged to attend various seminars, workshops and spiritual programmes that are regularly organised by the centre.
Please refer to our monthly calendar for more details on the centre’s activities.
