Devotional Offering conducted by Visually Impaired 2016

On the evening of Saturday 19th March 2016, the South Region at the Easwaramma Sai Centre in Penal hosted a “Special Satsang” conducted by the Visually Impaired Persons of The Blind Welfare Association. This was the first satsang conducted entirely by visually-impaired brothers and sisters in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Visually Impaired used this occasion as a means of saying “Thank You” to the Sri Sathya Sai Baba Organization for the annual visit to the beach program which has been an on-going event for many years. The prayers and singing were vibrant, led by Mr. Deonarine Ragoo and the visually Impaired Persons. The singing was indeed superb, incorporating all faiths.
