Sathya Sai Baba touched the lives of millions during his time with us. His example of ceaseless, selfless service in alleviating the distress of those in need has inspired those who have found His teachings an outpouring of wisdom. The Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSIO) was founded to practice the teachings and to provide members with opportunities to serve their communities, especially those in dire need. Sai Baba has been and continues to be an inspiration and guide for many spiritual seekers. The anniversary of his passing on 24 April 2011 is a special date observed the world over.

The observance of the anniversary of Sai Baba’s passing on 24 April 2011, is styled the Aradhana Mahotsavam, an offering of love and gratitude to Sai. Due to the current coronavirus crisis, SSIO group functions are temporarily in abeyance. To mark the occasion, a special webinar is being presented on Sunday, 26 April as an alternative to the usual events carried out by the various units of the SSIO.
Whilst the SSIO is a spiritual organisation with no particular affiliation with a specific religion, it honours the teachings of all the major religions seeking to find the shared ideals. It also seeks to encourage a sense of brotherhood of man within a Unity of Faiths by observing some of the various religions’ holy days. This year, members of the NSW Region West Young Adults will be using Ramadan, a holy time of Islam, to devote the period as one of sacrifice.
Easwaramma Day is an annual celebration held by the Sathya Sai International Organisation to honour and remember the mother of Sathya Sai Baba. 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. 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.
Clean Up Australia Day is an annual, national community event occurring on the first Sunday in March. The day is dedicated to responsibly cleaning rubbish in local environments, whether suburban or rural, parks, beaches, creeks, ……wherever volunteers can make a difference. The SSIO has been supporting this initiative for many years.
