The Mother’s Day Classic Walk is an annual fun run and walk event supporting Breast Cancer Research. The event is organised by Women in Super since 1998. Various organisations as well as individuals support and participate in the event, including various regions and groups of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG (SSIO). This year’s event takes place on Mother’s Day, Sunday, 13 May 2018.
‘Motherhood is the most precious gift of God. Mothers are the makers of a nation’s fortune or misfortune. They should teach two lessons, fear of sin and fondness for virtue. Both of these are based on faith in God, being the inner motivator in all. If you want to know how advanced a nation is, study the mothers; are they free from fear and anxiety, are they full of Love towards all, are they trained in fortitude and virtue? If you like to imbibe the glory of a culture, watch the mothers, rocking the cradles, feeding, fostering, teaching and fondling the babies. – Sathya Sai Baba, 5.9.1968
Sai Baba constantly stressed the importance of motherhood and the need to show gratitude and reverence to our mother for all the love, sacrifice and constant, selfless work she performs in the making of the home and care of the children and husband. Honouring our mothers by engaging in an activity that supports them is an excellent way to observe Mother’s Day.
Several regions and centres of the SSIO around Australia have organised groups to participate in the Mother’s Day Classic Walk this year. Some of the groups are also using the event to celebrate both Mother’s Day as well as Sai Baba’s mother, Easwaramma, a shining example of selfless motherhood who encouraged Sai in many of His humanitarian and social service projects and of showing love to all around her.
Details for the various regions and centres organising groups for the walk are available on the flyers available on the relevant links below.
