The first Sathya Sai Bhajan Mandalis established in Bangalore

October 1944

Sri Tirumala Rao and family with Sri Sathya Sai

Accompanied by Sri Narasimha Rao Naidu, Baba visited Sri Tirumala Rao’s house on St. John’s Road, Bangalore, staying there intermittently for a few months. Hundreds of people went to have His Darshan. The food prepared for the devotees, though seemingly little in quantity would miraculously cater to all those present. In 1944, Sri Seshagiri Rao, with the blessings of Baba, started Bhajans in various houses on all Thursdays. Baba materialised 5 photographs of Shirdi Baba and gave them to the 5 initial Bhajan groups. By the following year, ‘Bhajan Mandalis’ were formally established.
