Information about Sai Organisation

 

What is Sathya Sai Service Organisation?

The Sathya Sai Organisation is a service Organisation with spiritual core and base, founded under the guidance and inspiration of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, for the benefit of mankind, not having any distinction or separateness on the basis of religion, race, nationality, caste, creed or sect.

Around the world, the Sathya Sai Centres consist of members of different ethnic groups and different religions, all pursuing their respective religions and fulfilling the teachings of their religions, but joining together for the service of mankind with the firm faith that service to man is service to God.

The Sri Sathya Sai Service Organisation is not an evangelical or a proselytising Organisation; it is not a religious or a multi-religious Organisation. It is a spiritual Organisation, which does not recognise any distinction or separateness on the basis of religion, caste, colour or creed.

The Organisation is open to and takes within its fold persons belonging to all religions - Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Islam, etc. All these great religions have as their basic doctrine, the principles of Love and Non-Violence. The underlying unity of all these great faiths is the fundamental principle governing the functioning of the Sathya Sai Organisation and equal respect is given to al religions treating them as different sacred paths leading to the same goal.
