SaiRam Dear Members.  Please find below the latest Sri Sathya Sai Center of Loudoun Newsletter.

Please Note No Center Activities and SSSE Classes on April 2 2023 as we have Special Rama Navami Bhajans on April 1 2023. More Details below.


A warm and loving Sairam dear Members,

Hope all of you are having a blessed week! 

Last Sunday we had  blissful Hanuman Chalisa and Mantra Pushpam learning along with vibrant bhajans from our members on occasion of Ugadi celebrations. A hearty thanks to Swami for giving us all this wonderful opportunity and thanks to everyone who came and participated.


We will be celebrating Sri Rama Navami festival as special bhajans hosted at Sister Madhuri Chandra, this Saturday April 1st from 5:30pm onwards, by singing the glory of Lord Sai Rama to our hearts content!

For millions of men, women, and children, Ramayana, the Rama Story, Stream of Sacred Sweetness, has been for many centuries the perennial source of solace during sorrow, vitality when floored by vacillation, illumination while confounded, inspiration in moments of dejection, and guidance while caught in quandaries. It is an intensely human drama in which God impersonates man and gathers around Him, on the vast world stage, the perfect and the imperfect, the human and the subhuman, the beast and the demon, to confer on us, by precept and example, the boon of Supreme Wisdom. It is a story that plays its tender fingers on the heartstrings of people, evoking lithe, limpid responses of pathos, pity, exultation, adoration, ecstasy and surrender, rendering us transformed from the animal and the human into the Divine, which is our core. – N. Kasturi.

Requesting all parents, members to Join us.

Please find this week's Centre Newsletter, updates from all wings (Devotion, SSSE, Seva & YA) along with Centre Calendar for April 2023 and Zonal/Regional updates.
