We all know the earth is in crisis. Climate change, pollution, over-exploitation, habit loss and species extinctions are ever-present reminders of our need to change our behaviours. 2020 marks the 95th year of the advent of Sathya Sai Baba. To mark the occasion, Envirocare Australia, the SSIO’s environmental program, is sharing via 3 videos, ideas of 95 potential green pledges we can all take to make a positive change for the environment.
The SSIO, a multi-faith spiritual organisation, honours the different religions as paths of developing deeper relationships with the One. It celebrates some of the significant holy days of the religions as a method of fostering tolerance, understanding and inclusion. The Hindu religion’s Maha Shivarathi, a night dedicated to God know as Shiva is one such event. The night is traditionally observed as one in which concentration on God in different ways is observed from sunset to sunrise the next day. This year, Maha Shivarathri falls on the night of Friday, 21 February. A number of regions and individual groups will be observing this and all are welcome to attend any of the celebrations
