Roddam Samithi 200th Satsang at Parthi by Pada Yatra

200th Satsang and 3rd Pada Yatra to Parthi by Roddam samithi

Roddam Samithi has been conducting Satsangs for every full moon day (pournami) in one of its bhajan Mandalis since 1997. Sometimes these Satsangs are also taking place in villages where there is no Bhajana Mandali. 

Usually the Program schedule will be as follows:

Satsang will be conducted in the evening after some service activity. Veda chanting by Nalluru Balavikas students,Grama Sankeerthan followed by Satsang for 1 to 1 1/2 hour by any eminent speaker will happen as a part of this Satsang. After Harathi, prasadam will be distributed and all the devotees will disperse.Every month nearly 250 members from all the 16 bahajan Manadalis will participate in this Satsang.

With Bhagawan's Divine Blessings, we have completed 199 Satsangs by last month and planned to organise the 200th Satsang at the Divine lotus feet (Prashnathi Nilayam) on 12th of March, 2017. For this all the devotees from 16 Bhajana Mandalis including Balavikas alumni (nearly 240 members) reached Parthi by Pada Yatra that started on 11th morning 5:30 AM. The 2 days programme is as follows:


We started our Pada Yatra with Omkaram, Suprabhatham and Ashtotharam at 5:30AM on 11th march after the waving of flag by founder of our Samithi Sri K.R. Lakshmana Rao.

On the way, we distributed Swami’s photoes, Vibhuthi prasadam and chocolates to all the people.

In addition, we have taken up the service of distributing books, slates, slate pencils, pens, swami’s photos and vibhuthi packets with a chocolate to all the schoolchildren in the villages, which we are passing by. We have also given a big Swami’s Photo to all the schools.

On the first day coffee and bread was served by Patarlapalli bhajana mandala and tiffin by Thurakalapatnam bhajana mandali. Lunch was served by Penukonda samithi at Satya Sai Mandir.

Meanwhile, other devotees throughout our journey served chilled buttermilk and water.
