Service Wing Activities in Australia
Service to Man is Service to God. Man is not merely a human body, he is an embodiment of the divine. All acts of service done are treated as service rendered unto God. Sathya Sai Baba’s sayings are Love All – Serve All, Help Ever – Hurt Never.
Sathya Sai Baba has established His Organisation for the express purpose of giving devotees, in fact, everyone, opportunity to do selfless service. The fruits of selfless service are eradication of the ego, selfless love, and realisation of the inherent divinity within. No other spiritual activity provides these spiritual leaps and bounds other than service to the needy.
Service activity in Australia includes, among others:-
- Organising Soup Kitchens
- Helping Elderly and Youth
- Blood Donation
- Visiting Hospitals, writing letters for patients
- Distribution of Food
- Preparation of Hygiene Kits
- Survival Packs for Homeless Youths
- Flood, Earthquake and other disaster relief

- Preparation of Birthing Kits

Sathya Sai Baba has answered devotees questions on selfless service. You may download these Questions and Answers, and read at your leisure.
The Sathya Sai Organisation of Australia has a service wing at every Sai Group and Sai Centre. Every Sai Centre has a service coordinator and service activities are organised for the members to participate.
