Announcements for Sunday 20th December 2015 

1. Chennai Flood Relief You might be aware of the natural disaster in Chennai, and surrounding areas that have been paralyzed due to flooding from a record rainfall that has cut off more than 3 million people from basic services for days. It is reported that thousands have been forced to leave their submerged homes, offices and schools, and nearly 300 people have died.  

The Sathya Sai organisation is currently offering food to about 25,000 people each day. Blankets, bedding, food items, clothing and medicines are most urgently needed and are being distributed by local Sathya Sai organisations in Tamil Nadu.  

After the cessation of the rains, Sathya Sai volunteers will be engaging in rehabilitation of the victims of flooding. In this phase of relief activities, building materials, medicines and food items would be required in large numbers to help restore normalcy to the lives of our displaced brothers and sisters.  

The Sathya Sai International Organisation, via its Disaster Relief Committee, is coordinating further international participation in providing sustained relief and rehabilitation. 

Let us pray to our beloved Lord Sai, collectively in all our Sai Centres, to shower His Divine Blessings on all those affected in Tamil Nadu by this natural disaster and to alleviate their suffering. Through His Grace, let us serve those in need with humility and dedication. 

In continuation of these efforts, we request and encourage all the members of our Sai family in UK to come forward and participate in these efforts in a spirit of oneness, and in love and service to our beloved Bhagawan.  

For anyone wishing to voluntarily contribute funds towards the relief efforts led by the Organisation please see the information desk on how you can make your contribution either by cheque or directly into the Trust account. Let us also remember the thousands of people effected by the floods in the UK and pray that the Lord helps alleviate their suffering.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 

Two thousand years ago, when narrow pride and thick ignorance defiled mankind, Jesus came as the embodiment of Love and compassion and lived among men, holding forth the highest ideals of life. You must pay attention to the lessons he elaborated in the various stages of his life. 'I am the Messenger of God,' he declared, first. Yes. Each individual has to accept that role and live as examples of Divine Love and Charity.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 

Every human being has to develop three qualities: love for God, fear of sin, and morality in society...There are three spiritual practices by which love for God, fear of sin, and morality in society can be developed. They are devotion to God (bhakthi), the path of wisdom (jnana), and detachment (vairagya). Activity (karma) is a natural and essential attribute of the physical body. Only when the body undertakes good activity will the mind function well. When the mind is sound, love for God can be developed. Thus, devotion, wisdom, and detachment are interlinked with love for God, fear of sin, and morality in society. They are like the three blades of a fan. Only when the three blades rotate can we have refreshing air; otherwise we feel uncomfortable.
