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



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 a lovely center wide seva (P3 & Sandwich) activity led by our SSSE kids, parents, YA's and members! The energy all around was so intense and really reflected. A hearty thanks to Swami for giving us all this wonderful opportunity and thanks to everyone who came and participated.

“Swami says that the nutritive value and energy from food comes only when it is swallowed and digested, rather than just chewed. Similarly, the profound benefits of Swami’s teachings on human values parenting occur only through practice and implementation of these values into our daily lives.” 

We will have this Sunday March 19th starting at 9:30 AM @ Claude Moore Center, “Harmonious Homes – Human Values Parenting” satsang facilitated by Sister Maha Karthik and will have interactive activities and more food for thought. 

Requesting all Parents to Join the Satsang.

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

Sai Ram!
