Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Medicare Project - Maharashtra & Goa
The Sri Sathya Mobile Medicare project has, with Bhagawan's Blessings, reached out to over 26 lakh patients since inception. Several initiatives were undertaken during this journey. The Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Maharashtra & Goa, instead of resting at this goalpost, continues wholeheartedly to this seva of taking Bhagawan's love to the masses, by undertaking many innovative methods.
Radio Sai is pleased to bring you some glimpses of the Drama entitled “Badlenge Hum, Badlega Vatan” by Bhagawan's Post Graduate Students held in Prasanthi Nilayam on 15th August 2014.

Bharat has been in th...e past the preceptor of all nations. All other people are coming to acquire peace and enlightenment. In this situation, it is a great misfortune that Bharatiyas (Indians) themselves are not conscious of their greatness.

In spite of these multifariou...s endowments, this country is being regarded as poor and backward. This is ignorance born of delusion. Only when we free ourselves from this delusion, we can experience Atmic bliss. We can experience Brahman (divinity) only when we can get rid of bhrama (delusion)."

Bharat - A holy land of sacrifice and merit
Baba always refers to Bharat
as a holy land of sacrifice

as the engine, which will
steer the destiny of other
nations which are like bogies
of a train. In His birthday

elaborated on this subject in

Freedom and Spirituality? What

lovingly explains to us today.
three situations, you do not
have freedom: the
discharge of duties (karthavyam),
actions done under compulsion (nirbandham)
and obligatory actions arising
out of certain relationships (sambandham).
If a poor man, unable to get
food, resorts to stealing, he
cannot claim that he is
exercising his freedom to
appease his hunger. Even if, for
his own selfish reasons, he may
try to justify the stealing, his
conscience will tell him that he
is committing wrong. Any action
performed against one’s
conscience is not an act of
freedom. True freedom happens
only when one is free from the
impulses of the mind. Freedom (Swechcha)
is made up of the words: Swa +
ichcha. ‘Swa’ means Atma. Only
when the will of the Atma
prevails can there be real
freedom. God and you are not
separate. This oneness should
not be a mere intellectual
concept. It should be a living
reality. Then you will
experience true freedom - the
freedom of the Spirit.

the purpose of such miracles and
lovingly explains to us today.
Supreme Lord can assume countless
forms including that of the entire
cosmos. Hence scriptures declare,
"The entire cosmos is God’s
dwelling. All are forms of the
Divine." Seeing a Divine
Incarnation people doubt whether
God has such miraculous powers
while He has the same body as
themselves. People who find it
difficult to perceive their
oneness with the Self (Atma), fail
to recognise the Avatar. Such
people reviled Lord Krishna as a
philanderer and a thief. Such
accusations, born of delusion,
will never undermine His
greatness. Lord Krishna's leelas
were intended to reveal His
Divinity. People make the same
mistake about themselves;
forgetting their inherent
Divinity, they identify themselves
with their bodies. Lord Krishna’s
Avatar is to teach mankind to
transcend their body

You are unity personifi...ed.
One finger cannot lift a cup; when one
finger moves to pick it up, all of
you, though different in sizes and
shape, rush to help and hold the cup!
You don’t care for or observe any
difference. Such is the unity inherent
in you, amongst your fingers. Oh hand,
you are very helpful in preserving the
human body, you remove troubles
through your hard work and you help
others. Why do you sometimes act in a
manner that develops enmity? Today
there is no unity in any congregation,
society or religion. However, you know
no hatred. Please never indulge in
wrong actions.” Thus instruct and
guide your hand so that your actions
become sacred. When your thoughts,
words and deeds are sanctified, all
the other instruments also follow suit
and thus you attain liberation.

Dear brothers and sisters,
Radio Sai Thursday Live August 7, 2014 Download links
Bandhan Greetings from Prasanthi Nilayam!
Wishing you all a "Happy Raksha Bandhan"
Raksha Bandhan symbolizes the divine bond between brothers and sisters. Sisters tie a symbolic thread of protection to ...brothers' hands and brothers, in turn, shower lavish gifts on their sisters and pledge to protect them always. Since Sai is the divine protector of all, we will be tying a raakhi (Symbolic thread) to Baba's hands and pray to Him to protect one and all
How is Raksha Bandhan connected with the life of Lord Krishna
Swami : Why do sisters tie Raakhis?… When Krishna was about to leave for the war, His sister, Subhadra tied a thread to His hand, praying for His welfare. Does anybody know Sanskrit? (When nobody could answer, Swami spoke two sentences in Sanskrit, which were spoken by Subhadra while she tied the thread to Krishna) It means, “May you shine like the full moon and may you be victorious.” This was the first time Raakhi was tied. Nowadays there are neither Subhadras nor Krishnas!
If everything is
in essence Divinity, why do we perceive
different entities? Bhagawan
lovingly elucidates to us today.
which sustains the
and the cell is one, the all-pervasive
Consciousness (Brahmam). When this
infinite vastness is related to the
cosmos, it is called the ‘Supreme Divine’
(Paramatma). It is called Atma when it is
considered as the core of individual
beings. All three are one entity, but they
'appear' different and delude the
short-sighted. This characteristic is
known as Maya. The Supreme Power uses the
three Gunas, serenity (Satwa), activity
(Rajas) and inertia (tamas) to express
Itself differently. The Gunas urge a
person towards knowing, desiring or
working. When Maya impels Brahmam to
project itself, leveraging Satwa Guna, it
appears as Eshwara or God. Brahmam
projects itself as living beings (Jivi)
leveraging Rajo Guna. It becomes Nature (Prakriti)
when associated with Tamo Guna. Thus
Brahmam is the basis of all three –
Nature, Living Beings and God. Maya is the
mirror in which Brahmam is reflected.
How should we live
in peace and amity, and resolve differences
on important religious matters?

Bhagawan clearly explains to us today.
Musical Evening Greetings from Prasanthi Nilayam!
In what way is the
message of all religions the same?
Bhagawan lovingly explains us today.
No religion ever preached enmity amongst
faiths. It is the narrow-mindedness in
individuals that gives room for conflicts and
differences. Truly speaking, there can be no
scope for any such disputes. For example, the
word ‘Islam’ means surrender and peace –
signifying surrender to God, and a peace...ful
life with fellow beings. Two words in Quran
are important – Salaat and Zakaat; Salaat
means adoring God with steadfast devotion,
Zakaat means charity to the needy and
destitute, and helping fellow beings. Ancient
Hindus lived with the motto, “May all the
beings in all the worlds be happy” (Lokah
Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu) and “Help Ever,
Hurt Never” (Paropakarayah punyaya, papaya
para peedanam). Treating such aphorisms as
their life breath, people of all religions
lived with amity and harmony in the past. They
considered truth, peace, love and forbearance
as their very life breath.

DAINIK BHASKAR NEWS PAPER APPRECIATES SATHYA SAI CENTRAL TRUST
Om Sairam dearest Sai Family
Swami Founded Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust which was officially Registered in the year 1972. Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust has been doing unparalleled and yeomen service to the mankind and paved way to stupendous projects which stand as " Milestones" of Sri Sathya Sai Avatar, be it the Super specialty hospitals, Educational institutions , Water projects to name a few.
It is a moment of pride and happiness to all the Sai Family as the media which spoke ill on the entire Sai Set up is slowly opening its " eyes".
A leading English daily of India, DAINIK BHASKAR in its recent issue has appreciated the contributions of the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust especially after Swami's Mahasamadhi. Here is the link for the article.
Some Excerpts from this article
(Just three years ago, there were widespread speculations about the future of the empire of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, build (built) over five decades. Sai had created a network of trusts and institutions that provided health care, medical facilities and education to many. Since Sai's presence was considered enough to streamline everything, his passing away on April 24, 2011 led many to believe that end of the empire was imminent" )
On various occasions Swami has said it very clearly that Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust will remain so long as " Moon and Sun" exists in this world. Even though many Non- Devotees and few of our own Sai-devotee family members thought " otherwise", after being carried away by the misleading media reports during Swami's mahasamadhi, it is only His grace that the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust is functioning with doubled enthusiasm with so many service oriented projects in the recent past.
The unique feature of the Trust and the reason for its success in spite of PHYSICAL absence of Swami is because of the amount of transparency and accountability. The Trust is adhering to strict internal audits, contract evaluations and even today the first thing you read after entering the Ganesh Gate is OFFERINGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ( which includes any thing in cash and kind) unlike other temples which lately have come out with life size, fancy, Donation boxes and that's that first thing you see as you enter the Temple premises.
As part of the transparency measures taken up by the Trust, from the year 2011, Annual reports consisting of the expenses, new projects, interest earned on deposits, new donations etc are made public and available on the official website of the Central Trust. Here is the link for the Annual report for the year 2012-2013
As directed by Swami, even today there are no cash offerings and no practice of fund raising of any sorts. Lot of devotees who visit Prasanthi (i am sure you also would have experienced this) keep enquiring with sevadals or fellow devotees as to how to make offering to Swami ( Central Trust).
Here i would like to narrate a personal experience when i went to deposit a cheque sent by a devotee friend to the Central Trust office opposite the South Indian canteen. As i was asked by my friend to deposit the cheque into the " corpus fund" i was asked to wait for my turn. Mean while here entered one " visibly" poor man. He seemed to be little confused and unsure of something. I thought he mistook the Central Trust office for canteen token issuing counter. He was holding 100 rupee note in his hand. Looking at the 100 rupee note and his physical appearance this man reminded me of Lord Krishna's childhood friend " Sudama" ( also known as Kuchela in South India). He came up to me and asked ( in Hindi) "where is the place to make a deposit to Swami's Trust". I told him you have come to the right place. As i was seated next to him and as we waited for our turn, he started a small conversation . He said he is from a very remote village in the Indian state of Bihar. I asked him how did he come to Puttaparthi. He said his son had a heart related problem and was successfully operated in the Super Speciality Hospital. He continued, "such a big operation was done absolutely free of charge and this hospital should exist for eternity and beyond so i am offering this 100 rupees which is from my heart and I know it is nothing compared the huge expenses incurred in running this hospital but I feel it is my responsibility to offer something to Swami's hospital". I really had tears seeing his devotion and more importantly the " impact" made by Swami's hospitals to the poor and downtrodden.. He indeed is a very " responsible" devotee who took pains to find the office and made sure his hard earned money went to the continuation of Swami's mission and in spreading His message of love.
I had a chance to take few photos of the water project at various places. These photos are from July 2013.
Sri.Kondal Rao and Engineers from L & T company successfully get the trail run
A workmen busy joining the water pipes leading to the village
Photo of the pump house near Kesapuram Village, July 2013
High quality, specially designed pipes are being used for Swami's water project.
By Swamis grace the water project which was planned to give safe drinking water to 118 villages (These are the villages which were not covered in the previous phase of Sri Sathya Sai Water Supply Project) benefiting nearly 200,000 people is almost complete. It is likely to be dedicated to the Nation during the 89th Birthday celebrations of our Beloved Bhagawan on 23rd November 2014.
Every one of us are the " torch Bearers" of Sri Sathya Sai mission and it is every devotee's responsibility.. Lets pray to Swami to make us His humble instruments and work harder to spread joy and happiness to the society
Jai Sai Ram

are set forth in order that people enjoy the benefits of
leading a moral life. Religion is a meritorious system
that unifies body, mind and intellect. Integrity or
wholesomeness of conduct is morality. Morality is also
called as Righteousness (Dharma). Practice of morality
alone can help the world attain...
greater levels of prosperity. All religions have the
same goal and establish the same truth. Their
fundamental duty is to transform a human being into a
divine being. Religion brings out the inner
transformation in a human being. It aims at developing
self-confidence to lead a good life. All religions are
built on the secure foundation of morality. If morality
deteriorates, not just religions, but humanity as a
whole deteriorates. Every individual must practice being
good and lead a moral life. Attainment of wealth and
prosperity is possible by practicing moral values.

Brothers & Sisters,
Conceived by Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba Himself,
the Sai Mobile Hospital is a unique free rural
outreach health service, which reaches the very
doorstep of the needy. This is yet another example
of Swamy's forethought and His concern for the
downtrodden. Keeping in mind that the under
privileged living in villages, not only have no
immediate access to medical care, but also find
visiting a hospital in a nearby town quite taxing,
Swamy willed that quality healthcare should be
made available to them in their villages and that
too it should be free of any cost to them. Thus
was born Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Hospital.

Bhagawan kindly reminds us today.
feel proud of the enormous growth in education eve...rywhere.
Acquiring degrees at great cost and developing
contempt for one’s parents out of intellectual
pride is not a sign of higher education.
Arrogance, envy and ostentation should have no
place in an educated person. Humility is the
hallmark of true education. The educated must
serve people through sweat and toil. Education
must inspire youth to offer service, to sacrifice
and to help. It must not inspire youth to amass
money as its goal, and to travel farther and
farther to earn more and more of it. Accumulated
money often breeds arrogance and its army of other
vices. You cannot crave for peace and happiness
and do things that bring unhappiness and worry.
Having been born as human beings, you must try to
rise above the level of animals and raise yourself
to be truly Divine.

Sairam Dear all,
brothers and sisters,
While the number of educated people has risen significantly, why is there no peace and happiness in the community? Bhagawan explains the problem and the solution.
Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Friday, August 1, 2014
The number of students in schools and colleges has increased very significantly. Formal education, which was for long the privilege of a few scholars and the sons of the rich, is now at the very doors of everyone. People rejoiced when schools and colleges rose up more and more in the countries of the world, without realizing what is happening through them. Unrest, fear and anxiety are increasing because of improper and incomplete education. Education process that does not involve itself in proper values or does not lay stress on morals is dangerous. Consequently, the products of the process, who have no sense of values, gradually enter the positions of higher authority in the administration of nations at very high levels. Hence the world has come to the brink of a disaster. Education can yield peace and prosperity only when along with technical skills and objective information, students are equipped with moral ideals, righteous living and spiritual insight.
- My Dear Students, Vol 2, Ch 15, Mar 1, 1981.
The spirit of sacrifice is the hallmark of true education. - BABA.
