Liquid Love - Blood Donation Camp - Zone 1 - Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation - Tuesday 26th May, 2015 (Morning)

Every time you donate blood, you are saving lives. Blood cannot be manufactured, and there is no substitute for it. It is in constant demand for accident victims, hemophiliacs, surgeries, infants, patients battling cancer and more. In addition, blood supplies need to be replenished constantly, as blood products have a short shelf life. With blood shortages occurring worldwide, it is important to create a network of young blood donors. And It is for these reasons that the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Mumbai (Zone 1) has taken up this task in collaboration with doctors from Sion Hospital in the blood donation drive at Churchgate Station.

After the lighting of the lamp around 9.45 am the volunteers from Zone 1 who were carrying the placards were posted around important exit points requesting people to donate blood.

Within 2 hours ( 11.45 pm), with Swami's Grace around 60 people (and still counting) had lovingly donated, in the words of Sai Baba Himself, ‘Liquid Love’. Each unit of blood, around 370ml has the potential of saving the lives of three people. At the time of uploading these photos ( 2.45 pm) .... around 125 people had donated this "Liquid Love"

The blood donation drive will conclude in the evening around 5 pm.

Samarpan - Sri Sanjay Sahni Talk at Pushpa Kunj, Churchgate - 25th May 2015.


Living with God, living for God, living in God

Man since times immemorial has been in quest of God. Man has been in search of happiness from the beginning of this creation. God can only be realized. God cannot be experimented upon. God can only be experienced. Bhagawan gave the answer: "God is Love. Love is God. Live in Love.

Sri Sanjay Sahni very beautifully narrated the above subject, his innumerable experiences with Swami, to the devotees assembled here at Pushpa Kunj, Churchgate on 25th May, 2015....

In short living with God he said is education, Living for God is service and living in God is surrender.

Magical Moments at Dharmakshetra - Whistling by Sri Sai Sivaprasad

direct link:



Story behind photos – 181 – Anniversary, Dharmakshethra.




May 12th is the Anniversary day of Dharmakshethra.  This year the chief  guest  was the Whistling Wizard Sri. Sai Sivaprasad. He is not singing; He is not using any musical instruments. He just whistles away through his lips, and produces the best melodious music  around him.   More than one hour of melodious Bhajans !! The vast crowd splendidly gave their best chorus support.  We felt like that Swami was singing and we devotees are following Him !!


Sri Sivaprasad had rendered concerts in all leading sai centers including, Parthi, Sundaram and Sivam. His  long  time desire of singing in Dharmakshethra had found fulfilment today.  He had 6 other music supporting team with him. Sri. Sivaprasad mentioned the team as Sapth swaras.

Sri. Mumbai Srinivasan spoke for few minutes about the old time incidents in Dharmakshethra from the day of Foundation stone ceremony, by Bhagavan Himself.  He also introduced Sri. Sivaprasad and his  music team. The State President of Maharashtra & Goa Sri. Ramesh.Sawant, All India Vice President Sri.  Nimish   Pandya,  and Sri. Vijay Bhaskar, Trustee of Sri Sathya Sai Maharashtra  felicitated Sri. Sivaprasad and his  team.

With Love & regards, Mumbai Srinivasan.

a. Chanting Gayatri Mantra 108 times from 5 to 6 pm on Friday 1st May.

b. The Chanting to be followed by Bhajans and Aarathi.

c. Although preferable, it is not necessary that everyone should assemble at one place only. However, larger participation has multiplying effect from the Chanting. Devotees unable to reach their center, can assemble in somebody’s house and do the chanting.

d. Those unable to go anywhere to join the chanting, are requested to atleast chant from wherever they are.

2) Please circulate this to as many people as possible.

Your’s in HIS Service

Saprem Sairam.

All of us are aware that due to the nature's fury unleashed on 25th April 2015 , our brothers & sisters in Nepal as well as in some parts of our country are facing innumerable problems and have lost every thing they possessed besides their own kith and kin.

While Government of India has taken all possible steps that are needed on humanitarian grounds, duty is cast on our Organisation to seek the blessings of Mother Sai to give enough strength to the persons affected by the calamity, to overcome the mental trauma caused in the aftermath of the colossal tragedy.

It has been therefore decided that all the Districts/Samitis across Maharashtra & Goa will assemble on Friday,1st May 2015 and chant Gayatri Mantra minimum 108 times or multiple thereof. Besides the devotees, please also involve Balvikas children, alumni of Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas and Swami's students.

District Presidents may decide on the time and location convenient to all.

Please give publicity in your local areas so that many others can also participate in the endeavour.

Let us pray to Mother Sai to protect all.

With respectful regards & Sairam,

Your's in Sai service,
