The main objective of the Sathya Sai Organization ... is to help you recognize the divinity inherent in you. So, your duty is to emphasize the One, to experience the One in all you do or speak. Do not give importance to differences of religion, sect, status, or color. Have the feeling of one-ness permeate all your acts. Only those who do so have a place in this Organization; the rest can withdraw.
Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai Speaks IX, 35, 187-188 (old edition)
The inspiration of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's example and message of unselfish love and service has resulted in the establishment of over 1200 Sathya Sai Baba Centres in 114 countries throughout the world.
The Sathya Sai Baba Centres constitute a genuine spiritual movement. We are moving away from body consciousness and selfishness to God consciousness and selflessness. We are moving away from a world in which force maintains order, away from a world in which selfish goals are the foundation of human interactions and institutions. We are moving toward a world where acknowledgement of and love for God results in the harmonious and loving interaction of all members of the holy human family. Love is the fuel for our spiritual movement. The quality and constancy of our love determines the speed and duration of our journey.
The members of Sathya Sai Baba Centres are united by a common bond - love of God - and a common goal - spiritual growth. Centre activities include the study of the teachings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and the sacred literature of all religions, group devotional singing, spiritual meditation, and selfless service to the community, society, the world, and the environment. The membership includes people from all walks of life, and the Centre programs are compatible with all the major religions. There is never a fee for membership in a Sathya Sai Baba Centre, and members are never required to purchase books or materials. Donations are never solicited.
Swami Says ...
Do not be weighed down by the so-called downfalls you face at times. That which may appear as suffering to you, may become a big milestone of progress in your spiritual path to reach Me. Welcome Me in any form I appear, whether in happiness or sorrow. Do not judge Me badly because Things do not seem to go the way you think them to be. Trust Me and know for sure, that your welfare is more important to Me than to you yourself!
