Maula Sai is definitely a mesmerizing presentation of Sai Bhajans and a complete masterpiece.
This is the first time Mehndi has rendered a devotional album consisting of Sai Bhajans. Mehndi quotes,
“It has been in my heart to release a Sai Album. For me, all Gurus, all masters are a way to reach that supreme power. Love and righteousness is the universal message that every master has taught. Bhakti, faith, and devotion help one to connect with that highest power. The virtues of faith and patience are what Baba also preached! See… different times, different names but a love that is the same yesterday, today and forever calling – Come to me now. My latest release Maula Sai also encapsulates the same faith through four Sai devotional tracks. I have also composed a video featuring me crooning Baba’s Gyaarah Vachan.”
