Singing the Lord’s name should become an exercise in mutual sharing of joy and holiness.

Sri Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 19/Ch. 24, Nov 08, 1986.

The devotional session consists of singing in two styles – unison and lead-response. In the lead-response style, a lead singer sings each line which is followed in response by the group. By the act of group devotional singing, one feels closer to his/her inner self or God while singing aloud the name or glory of God. It is the process of singing that originates from the heart, not the lips or tongue. It is the expression of the joyous thrill that wells from one’s heart when the glory of God is remembered.
