The Divine Annathanam, also known as The Divine Birthday Luncheon, was held on 15th April 2012 in Batu Caves in conjunction with The Divine Birthday of His Divine Grace Yoga Jnana Sitthar Om Sri Rajayoga Guru. This annual event of the Rajayoga Power Transceendental Meditation Society (RPT), had been organised for the sixth time this year under the patronage of Her Divine Grace Datin Seri G. This event was attended by more than 65,000 people who comprised of RPT disciples from Malaysia and abroad, their families and others.
The function commenced with the Divine Arrival of Their Graces Dato' Seri Guruji and Datin Seri G at the Batu Caves Lord Subramaniar Temple at 9.33 am, followed by special prayers and Maheswara Pooja . Their Divine Graces were given a warm welcome with cultural dances and martial arts performances. On this auspicious occasion, Their Divine Graces Dato' Seri Guruji and Datin Seri G presented laptops to 12 students who obtained outstanding SPM results in 2011. Their Divine Graces also presented mock cheques worth RM 5000 each to the representatives from 10 Tamil schools.
When addressing the crowd, His Divine Grace Dato' Seri Guruji stressed that RPT is an organisation that places great importance to culture and heritage and it has never gone against the cultural norms of the Indian community or any other community for that matter. His Divine Grace also encouraged all the disciples in RPT to practise meditation for at least 15-20 minutes a day.
This Divine Birthday Luncheon was well organised with more than 5000 disciple-volunteers helping out and overseeing that everything ran smoothly. The crowd waited patiently from morning to get a glimpse of Their Divine Graces and later went home happily after obtaining the blessed food. This event certainly gave everyone who attended, an opportunity to get the simultaneous blessings of Guru and God.
