‘True and selfless love manifests as sacrifice. Such love knows no hatred. It envelops the entire universe and is capable of drawing near even those who are seemingly far away. Love is that which transforms the human into the Divine. – Summer Showers 2000.12
Sathya Sai Baba touched the lives of millions throughout the world with His teachings, His guidance and His example of Unconditional Love and Selfless Service. His many extraordinary service projects ranged from educational facilities covering primary to university level, hospitals including super-specialty ones dealing the most complex health issues, and major water projects providing potable drinking water to millions; all of these provided absolutely free-of-charge to the recipients. These are but a few of the undertakings He was responsible for. However, His most important work was His teachings on spirituality and the transformation of people through unconditional love to all and the promotion of the Human Values of Selfless Love, Truth, Peace, Right Action and Non-violence. He encouraged people to establish a personal relationship with God through the religion of their choice, teaching that all the different religions were but different routes to the same destination. His guidance remains undiminished as His spiritual teachings have an eternal application and the teachings of Human Values are universal and embrace the concepts found in all the major religions.
Those within the SSIO are tremendously grateful for the influence He has had in their lives and commemorate this date reflecting on His love and teachings.
‘Love all beings—that is enough. Love with no expectation of return. Love for the sake of love. Love because your very nature is love. Love because that is the form of worship you know and like. When others are happy, be happy likewise. When others are in misery, try to alleviate their lot to the best of your ability. Practice love through selfless service. By this means you will realise unity and get rid of the ego that harms. – Sathya Sai Speaks 12.4, 5 March 1973
