Toowoomba Sai Centre put together creative, energetic and beautiful celebrations for three major events which they observed in the month of November.
New South Wales Region West undertook a major service activity to mark the 95th Advent of Sathya Sai Baba. The service activity started with a spiritual discipline plan with members of NSW Region West practicing Ceiling on Desires for 95 Days.
Bhagawan in a discourse said “Man yearns for happiness in every act, in every kind of experience. Whether he does business or work in an office, his aim is to derive happiness. But does he find it? No. It is only a temporary phase as it is worldly happiness. He may be happy for a while, but permanent happiness is attained only by contemplation on God. So, contemplate on the Divine. You try to experience many things. Instead, experience the divine bliss, which is within you. That is the supreme bliss”
The ACT Region were fortunate to be able to celebrate the significant ocassion of the 95th Advent Day of Sathya Sai Baba by holding an in-person program where a limited amount of people could attend. With strict compliance to government requirements for holding functions during the current pandemic, the celebration proved to be a highly positive and uplifting event in the current circumstances. Despite the many restrictions in place, the devotees who were able to attend the event were grateful to be able to undertake a regional celebration after many months of not being able to do so.
SSSIO Australia’s Media team arose from the need to develop more ways to help Sai devotees feel inspired and connected to Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings and to each other through the use of digital platforms. This included the National SSIO Australia Website and major social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, Sai Click Apps, Vimeo and YouTube Channels.
