Dharmakshetra - An architectural breathtaking Beauty Beyond Compare.


This architectural breathtaking beauty which was built in exactly 108 days stands magnificently over a hillock and it serves as a reminder for mankind to embark upon the path of Righteous Conduct. Dharmakshetra symbolizes the core message of Bhagawan to mankind, i.e to embark upon Dharma.

Dharmakshethra, sometimes called Sathyam, is one of three special spiritual centres established by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the others being Sivam in Hyderabad and Sundaram in Madras. These three spiritual centres are visible manifestation of his mission to revive spiritual India. Sathyam, Sivam, and Sundaram are the attributes of Divinity within and without.

Dharmakshetra translates to the human body, which is kshethra, (the place) where Dharma (right conduct) occurs. Over the decades since its existence Dharmakshetra has been by now witnessed to innumerable miracles of Bhagawan Baba.

Bhagawan Baba has often described Mumbai as the stomach of India. Prime needs of the body has to be met before the aspirations of the soul becomes overpowering.

Message from All India President SSSSO India Sri Nimish Pandya


Dear Brothers and Sisters

Sai Ram

I am sure that by now you would have received my recorded message on the Family Celebrations of our Beloved Bhagawan's Birthday Celebrations. Please take all efforts to reach the message to everyone in the Samithi area and motivate them with the bliss of family Celebration.

Bhagawan always stated that His relationship with every one is on a one to one basis.

Bhagawan was very particular that families must live in harmony and unity. The feeling is of inviting Bhagawan home.

It is in this context that we want to urge every Sai Devotee family to ensure grand celebrations of Bhagawan in every home.

Needless to say that it does not matter that they may not be active as a part of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation. This celebration is for all mankind as it is a celebration of Unconditional Love and spiritual bliss irrespective of color caste creed and religion.

I am sure it will be befitting that the celebration of Avataarhood of Sai becomes an integral part of every home. Let the homes be lit up with lights and colorful decorations. The family must ensure the coming together of all members, neighbours and friends and relatives singing bhajans at home.

It will be great if the family and friends perform Narayan Seva ie. feed the poor and take up one activity at the family level of seva and experience the collective bliss of Swami's Presence.

Time spent in meditation as a family and Satsangh will draw immense blessings of Swami upon the whole family.

Family contemplation on a message of Swami could go a long way towards bonding between family members and friends.

I sincerely request that these thoughts are penned by all of you in your respective local languages and be sent out in print to every home in your State District and Samithis. I request the Mahila leaders to ensure that all Sisters in India are made aware of this message in their regional languages.The State Presidents can record their messages on video in their own languages.

Looking forward to your whole hearted efforts to ensure that this message reaches one and all and please do revert with your experiences after the celebrations.

Loving Regards
