An environmental awareness project is under way in the NSW East Region of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG. The project is aimed at reminding us that much of our superseded possessions and materials can have another life and thus reduce wastage, land-fill and possibly provide someone else with something they can profitably use. Recycling reduces the demand on our precious earth resources in many ways and the environment they are harvested from. This is part of the SSIO’s ongoing commitment to ‘Serve the Planet.’
Our South Australian Region of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG will be conducting an introductory session on the Light Meditation at the request of a local community centre.
Light Meditation is a simple guided visualisation technique that aims to promote inner peace and personal growth.
The session will be held on Saturday, 13 May at the Adelaide South West Community Centre.
Easwaramma Day is an annual celebration held by the Sathya Sai International Organisation to honour and remember the mother of Sathya Sai Baba. It is held on the anniversary of her death. Easwaramma was a pious and pure village lady who over the years had to broaden her concept of love, expanding it beyond the confines of family and community to embrace all as the phenomena of Sai Baba attracted more and more people. During this time she was confronted with His teaching which challenged the confines of her understanding of religion, ultimately enabling her to see and accept all as One. The day honours the principle of motherhood and the role the mother plays as the child’s first teacher. It is also observed as Children’s Day, as children were her particular concern.
