An Open Invitation to all the Youth of Mumbai



Saprem Sairam,  


1) With the Grace of Bhagawan, after a gap of more than a decade we are once again launching the Youth Awareness Program in the City of Mumbai. This program had caused hundreds of youth in the colleges of Mumbai to receive the Attention and Blessings of Bhagawan in their annual study tours to Puttaparthy. This year we are starting with three competitions -  Street Play, Art and Music. The Art and Street Play Competition is being held at Dharmakshetra, Sathya Deep lawns at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday December 13, 2014 and the Music Competition at Dharmakshetra Sathya Deep lawns at 6:30 p.m on Sunday December 14, 2014 with dinner thereafter on both days. 


2) You will all understand that we need tremendous participation from our devotees and Youth to motivate the college students and their professors as regards what a beautiful movement Baba's Sathya Sai Organization is and how it has transformed so many of us. Hence I call upon you to please make yourselves available for these events. 


3) I am also enclosing herewith a personal note addressed by Shri. Nimish Pandya All India Vice President to emphasize the importance that we attach to this event.  


4) I urge you all to participate positively.  


Your’s in HIS Service

To All my dear Youth Brothers and Sisters of Mumbai


Sai Ram


I feel very happy that I am addressing this letter to all of you on the eve of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organizations.

Our Beloved Swami has granted us so much Grace to enable us to live our lives meaningfully and with the confidence that He is always with us in our journey of life.


However, He always expected that we enlarge this circle of Unconditional Love to all our brethren. Swami always had a very special corner for Mumbai in His Heart. He used to say that Mumbai is like the stomach of India and if the stomach is healthy than the whole of India will be healthy.


We are making our effort to restart the Youth Awareness Program once again in Mumbai as we all know that youth is the greatest force and Swami had great faith in the youth, both boys and Girls.


Our first humble effort in this direction is slated on the 13th and 14 th of December 2014 at Dharmakshetra. The 13th DECEMBER Program starts at 5.30PM and the 14th program starts at 6.30 pm.


It is my fondest hope that all of you make a commitment to attend this two day fest of College students from various colleges of Mumbai who will be there at our invitation.


They will present street plays on the beautiful lawns of Dharmakshetra on the 13th and there will be an Art and Music festival on the 14th


Your overwhelming presence as Swami's youth will be an immense inspiration to these youth from Mumbai Colleges. Next year we will all plan this together to make it reach such Divine Levels that we will be able to make our Lord very happy and be a part of the amelioration mission of Swami for Mankind.


I am sure this will make all our lives worthwhile.


Lots of Love to all of you.


Nimish Pandya


All India Vice President

Rath Yatra held by Chembur Samithi on 30th Nov


It was a memorable Sunday, 30th November 2014, for devotees of Chembur who paid rich tributes to Bhagawan by participating in a Rath Yatra in large numbers to commemorate Swami’s 89th Birthday.

A record turnout of about 350 people including 100 Balvikas children participated in the Yatra. The Balvikas kids were carrying placards of Swami´s quotes. The program started with Vedam chanting at 8 am in front of the beautiful floral decorated chariot carrying Bhagawan. The large procession started from the General Education School and traversed through streets of Chembur. The bhajan singing all along created a reverberating atmosphere. The melodious Bhajans drew several residents to stop work, rush to the balconies or peep out of the windows and pay obeisance to the Lord. The beautifully decorated Rath complimented the beauty of our beloved Lord as HE kept gazing on all HIS devotees.

A special mention to the Chembur Police who helped manage the traffic along the Yatra route. Their police van was also a part of the procession alongwith our Mobile Medical Van.

The Rath Yatra ended at Shanti Krupa building premises at 10 am with Jhoola program to mark the celebration of the Lord's advent .

Today, youth are making great efforts to know all that is happening in the world through the medium of computers, television and newspapers, but they are not making any effort to ask the fundamental questions of human life: “Who am I?” “Where have I come from?” and “Where am I going?” Rather than investigating the world, we must make efforts to understand our own true nature. By such diligent, self-inquiry, we will transcend the mundane world and ascend to the heights of Divinity.- Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

“Youth is very sacred. Do not misuse it by indulging in limitless desires and building castles in the air. Pursue your education keeping God uppermost in your mind. Do not get entangled in unnecessary activities and bondage, which will cause restlessness. Today people are in search of peace. But peace cannot be found in the external world. You will find only pieces! Peace is in you. You are the embodiment of peace; you are the embodiment of truth; and you are the embodiment of love. So first of all, know thyself. Only then can you be blissful always.” - Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba with Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation - Youth Awareness Programme

Students—the architects of the future


Students! You are the ones who will assume the leadership of the country in future. The future of the nation depends upon you. Your nature and character will decide the character of the nation. You should work for the prosperity of the nation, welfare of the world, and universal happiness.
~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Summer Showers in Brindavan 1996
"I want you to be leaders to protect the world. Leaders like lions, self-reliant, courageous, majestic and just. Lion is the king of animals and I want you to be king among men."
~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba, inaugural address to students, Summer Course 1992
