Nagar Sankirtan

Baba has said that NagarSankirtan is a great Sadhana.  It is mass spiritual awakening.  Gather in the early hours before dawn, say about 4.30 a.m. or 5 a.m. and proceed slowly along the streets singing bhajan songs glorifying God.  Carry the name of God to every door, awake the sleeping with it, purify the atmosphere of the streets rendered unclean by angry shouts of hate or greed, faction or fights.  Let the day dawn for you and others with the thought of the Almighty, the Compassionate, the Omnipresent All-knowing God.  What greater service can you do to yourself and others.  This will give you health and happiness.  Your egoism will be shattered when you sing in the streets in full view of your neighbours.  You will forget in your enthusiasm all pride and self-esteem.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. VI Page 181)


Swami has further guided us by saying, “Do not start too early or too late; you must go through the streets slowly, singing aloud the names of all manifestations, just when the people of the locality are awaking and preparing to meet the new day that is dawning.  Do not carry any photo or picture with you, demonstrating your loyalty to any particular Form or Name.  Walk along in well arranged groups, men and women separately; do not plan Nagarsankirtan in buses, tractors, cycles or carts.”(Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol VII, Page 164)
