Members of the Seattle international community gathered on Nov. 15 to hear Dr. Chandra Bhanu Satpathy, also known as “Guru Ji,” at the Celebration of Global Sai Movement, organized by the Shri Sai Cultural & Community Center of Washington.

In addition to a discourse from Guru Ji on the life and teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba, the evening included the international release of “Vardaan Do Sai,” a musical album written and composed by Dr. Satpathy.

The evening also included the youth group of Kaze Daiko Seattle with a Japanese Taiko drum performance, Miguel Angel Munoz of Utopia-Latina Band on solo guitar, Brandon McIntosh performing Sarod with his 6-year-old son Rishav, the young students of the Urvashi Dance Ensemble, and the local Sai women’s group.

Lt. Governor Brad Owen was there to welcome Guru Ji to Washington state and recognized the Sai movement’s contributions to enriching the multicultural, multiracial, and multi-ethnic society in the United States. (end)
