This two-part video documents New Year's Eve day 1982 in Prasanthi Nilayam. It has not been edited. Those who did not visit the ashram before Kulwant Hall was built can get a sense of what it was like to be at darshan in those days.
The video starts with a parade accompanying a car with the wedding party traveling from the ashram for the wedding at the old mandir. Sathya Sai Baba arrives and spends some time there. He leaves at minute 17:30. The wedding ceremonies continue until about minute 24, and people then proceed back to the ashram.
Bhajans starts at minute 33:30, and we see wonderful shots of the mandir as it was in the 1980s. Sai Baba comes out for darshan at minute 49:20 and bhajans begin again at 58:30.
