The main objective of the Sathya Sai Organisation --which you must always
keep before you-- is to help man recognise the divinity that is inherent in

you do or speak. Do not give any importance to differences of religion or
sect or status or colour. Have the feeling of one-ness permeate every act of
yours. Only those who do so have a place in this Organisation; the rest can
