Sathya Sai Baba continuously stressed the importance of service as a means of showing our gratitude for all that we have in this life and alleviating the distress of others. Selfless service is a powerful means of growing spiritually and expanding our limited outlook to encompass all of humanity, in fact all of creation. It fosters a flowering of love and selflessness and leads to seeing the divine in the other. Baba particularly encouraged the young to take every opportunity do service where there is a need. The Young Adults groups of the Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSIO) take this teaching very seriously and have a number of programs they are involved in. The NSW East Region group recently celebrated the start of its activities for the new year with one such activity.
