9. Swami’s 87th Birthday Sadhana- 9 Point Code of Conduct

Please take a leaflet which has information on this year’s Centre Sadhana: -

"The day when you resolve to practice My advice; to follow my directives, to translate My message into acts of service, and to engage in spiritual discipline -that day is My birthday for you. The 23rd of November which you now honour as the day on which I was born, is only like any other day, even if you celebrate it in a routine, ritual fashion. Adore man: the adoration reaches Me. Neglect man; you neglect Me. Of what avail is it to worship the Lord and to suppress man, His counterpart on earth? Love for God must be manifested as Love for man, and Love must express itself as service."

- Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Thought of the Day- on Ugadi & message of Swami 

Special Message:

1. Today is very auspicious day. This time last year, Swami gave His last physical Darshan.

2. Time waits for no one. Change is the only constant in the chaotic world.

3. We should reflect on our journey so far from the form to the formless.

4. Spend a few minutes today and contemplate on our inward journey to realize the purpose of this human birth & to reach nearer to the Goal. 

Swami says:

“There is no place where I am not, there is not a form which is not mine.

I am the life in All beings.

I am the strength of the strong

The strength free from greed & lust

To experience my Presence & My Glory, there is not a special place, for I am

Everything, everywhere, ever”.

3. Prasanthi Council Letter
 
Narendranath Reddy, MD   Chairman                                                             
 
Dear Zonal Chairs,
Om Sri Sai Ram.
 
Please share the following information and announcement about Sanathana Sarathi with all the Sathya Sai Centers and devotees in your zone. Sanathana Sarathi is a monthly magazine started by Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba in 1958 devoted to the moral and spiritual upliftment of humanity through Truth, Righteousness, Peace, and Love. Swami wrote many articles for this monthly journal which were later published as books, namely, the Vahini series. As its name implies, Sanathana Sarathi is ‘eternal charioteer’ taking us to the goal of Self-realisation. Issued from Prasanthi Nilayam, it is the official publication of Baba’s Ashram, featuring Divine Discourses of Bhagawan Baba, experiences of devotees with Swami and reports of major Sai events in Prasanthi Nilayam and India and many countries of the world.  The good news is that for 2012 now we will be able to subscribe online for Sanathana Sarathi and also purchase e-copies.
 
Jai Sai Ram.
With loving regards,
Narendranath Reddy
