How can I get involved in Sri Sathya Sai International Organisation?

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 any mission of publicity for any sect or creed or cause; nor have I come to collect followers for any doctrine. I have come to tell you of this Universal unitary faith, this path of Love, this duty of Love, this obligation to Love. -Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. 8 Ch. 22

Sri Sathya Sai Baba teaches that a human being’s basic nature is divine and that the purpose of life is the realization of this divinity. He reminds us that human birth is unique among all of God’s Creations; human beings can recognise that they emanate from God and have the capacity to commune with God by turning inward. Ultimately, it is our destiny to merge with God. He says all religions are the expressions of these same universal principles.

In the pursuit of our purpose in life, the world is our school, the Five Human Values (Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love, and Nonviolence) are our curriculum, and the realisation of the unity of Divinity throughout the diversity of Creation is our ultimate lesson. “Love All, Serve All” and “Help Ever, Hurt Never” says Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba strongly emphasizes selfless service to those in need as the highest means for enhancing one’s own spiritual growth and development.

The Sri Sathya Sai International Organization (SSSIO) was founded by Sri Sathya Sai Baba to enable those attracted to his teachings to have a base to practise them in the company of like-minded spiritual aspirants. Essentially it is a place providing an opportunity to develop our devotion to, and intimate connection with God through study, devotional practices and most importantly, engaging in group service activities that benefit our immediate communities.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba remains a living presence, an inspiration, a guide, and most of all a cherished, endearing and intimately felt divinity in the hearts of millions who know him.

There are Centres of SSSIO in various locations across Australia. Members of the Centres meet regularly to study and discuss the teachings and to engage in group devotional singing, meditation, and prayer. Centre members also plan and implement a variety of community service projects that are within their means and resources. Regular classes are conducted for children on spiritual and human values. There is never any solicitation or fee charged for any function that a Centre conducts. All are welcome, regardless of race, creed, economic status, or religious orientation. All can participate in any of these activities without having any prior experience.

There is only one Caste, the Caste of Humanity There is only one Religion, the Religion of Love There is only one Language, the Language of the Heart There is only One God, and He is Omnipresent -Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. 18 Ch.30
