Dearest all – Om Sri Sairam!

We invoke the grace and blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the epitome of Universal Love that holds us all together. We are going through a crisis in our history due to a global pandemic that is continuing to engulf a life every second or less. We are also witnessing insurrection temples of freedom and also desecration of temples of worship in world’s greatest democracies. These are inflamed by the intoxicated political behaviors flared by fanatic religious forces. All of these threaten the basic fabric of human beings in character and values.  

With an intent to resurrect the universal love that is within all of us and invoke the power of collective prayers for universal peace, we urge you all to join Sadhana-4-Aradhana commemorating the 10th anniversary of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Baba Aradhana Mahostavam. The offering will begin on Sunday Jan 17 culminating on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. 

We request you to join ASAP by clicking on the link below and also share with those spiritually inclined.
