Born on 23 November 1926, Sathya Sai Baba during His lifetime inspired millions with His teachings and guidance towards lives dedicated to self transformation by fostering the qualities He nominated as Human Values, Truth, Peace, Righteousness, Non-violence, and above all love towards our fellow man and all of creation. The cornerstone of this development He recommended is Selfless Service to those in need; a practice that He exemplified throughout His life in many ways. All of this was to develop a closer relationship with God and a continual exploration of our own inherent divinity.
The SSIO is a body of people who are inspired by His teachings coming from the many different faiths and who have affinity with the Unity of Faiths, and who especially put into practice His teachings of Selfless Service to the communities in which they belong, as well as further afield.
Every year, the anniversary of His birth is a time of celebration of His life and influence and a reflection on the legacy of His teachings.
The centres and groups of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG, will be observing this special day throughout the different regions of Australia akin with similar organisations around the globe. The celebrations are open to all and all are warmly welcomed. Details of the various meetings are available through the link below.
“I have come to light the lamp of Love in your hearts, to see that it shines day by day with added lustre. I have not come on behalf of any exclusive religion. I have not come on any mission of publicity for any sect or creed or cause; nor have I come to collect followers for any doctrine. I have no plan to attract disciples or devotees into my fold or any fold. I have come to tell you of this unitary faith, this spiritual principle, this path of Love, this virtue of Love, this duty of Love, this obligation to Love.” – Sathya Sai Baba 4.7.68
“Spend the years of your life, the wherewithal you earn or possess, in the service of others who are in distress. Love grows on such service. Service is the sincerest form of adoration of God.” – Sathya Sai Baba. May 15, 1971.
