A Warm and Loving SaiRam Dear Members,

Hope all of you had a fun and blessed summer week! 

This Sunday has been designated as the International Day of Friendship by the United Nations. As devotees of Swami, how can we celebrate this day? What does friendship mean for a Sai devotee?

Explore the profound concept of true friendship and discover why only God can be considered the ultimate friend. As the world celebrates the International Day of Friendship, let us make an attempt to understand the timeless wisdom of Sathya Sai Baba and the significance of cultivating a bond with the Divine. Read what Swami, in an exclusive discourse, spoke about how God's unconditional love, unwavering support, and gift of inner peace surpass all human relationships. Find out how the friendship between Kuchela and Krishna exemplifies the depth and purity of true friendship. Embrace the idea that God alone can stand as the unwavering guide and friend throughout life's journey.

Center Devotional Satsang & Bhajans will be at Sister Sahiti Vedantam's residence (Summer Bhajans Venue) this Sunday July 30th 2023 from 10am onwards. See below in devotional session for more details.

As a summer devotional initiative as we are taught Madhurashtakam & Ganesh Pancharatnam, we shall now start learning Durga Suktam to be offered during Dussehra.

Please join the sessions. 

See below for more details.

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