Song and God
The principal feature of mankind which distinguishes him from the mineral, plant and animal kingdom, is that the knowledge of the Creator was planted within every man, woman and child. Men and women have the ability to use their faculties to discover and render worship to God. Sathya Sai Baba has taught devotees to engage in devotional singing right from the very inception of His mission, in 1940.
Devotional singing engages the whole person in a selfless activity; it lifts man, woman and child out of themselves and renders them divine, and places them in the very presence of the holy itself.
