Bhagavan releases the Compendium of

45 years of Seva Across the Globe

Sri Indulal Shah, International Advisor, Sathya Sai Seva Organisations (Overseas), Trustee, Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust and Sri Sathya Sai University, has been chosen by Swami since 1965 as a powerful, dedicated, indefatigable, self-less, dynamic and resourceful “human being”
for carrying out the Sankalp of the “Divine Being. The seed was already hatched by Mahatma Gandhi, nurtured under Sri Ramkrishna Paramahans Gospel and armoured with the teaching of several Indian Saints before it received the opportunity of shouldering the responsibilities as the Chairman of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation in 1965 under the Loving Wings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Just as the human physical heart supplies blood to all the parts of the body, the Divine Energy emerges from the Divine Heart at the Prashanti Nilayam and is supplied to all the parts of the Globe through the arteries, veins and capillaries of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation. During the last 45 years, the supply of this Divine Energy has been continuously flowing throughout the Globe under the command and guidance of Bhagavan in different forms such as Educare, Medicare and Sociocare. The bestowal of this Divine Grace is manifested in several forms such as establishment of Primary and Secondary Schools, Colleges, University, Education in Human Values, General and Super Speciality, Hospitals,
Drinking Water Supply Projects, Vocational Centres, Food Supply Centres, Gram Seva Centres and Spiritual Centres for the study of Vedas, Scriptures, Culture, Crisis and Stress Management etc. All these services are provided by different institutions and centres extensively and intensively throughout the world, completely free of charge without any obligation in a dedicated spirit of Love, Co-operation, Compassion and Forbearance with a firm conviction that all human beings being equal are entitled to fulfillment of basic necessities, comforts, health, happiness and peace which can be ensured only if material wealth, though acquired by human beings, is regarded as God's wealth held in Trusteeship for the benefit of God's children. The SSSO exactly does this as a Preamble to Swami's Divine Constitution – not to any particular national constitution

Shri Indulal Shah has brought out a Compendium of SSSO's activities all over the world during 1965 to 2010. This Compendium is virtually an Encyclopedia of one of the several branches of Bhagavan's Kalpavruksha (Wish-fulfilling Tree). Bhagavan has released and blessed this Compendium on 1 March, 2011 inside Bhajan Hall, Prashanti Mandir just few weeks before leaving His Physical Body. As such, it has become a very sacred and wish-fulfilling volume. As Swami is an Embodiment of Total self-less service, this volume blessed by Swami is full of Swami's Divine Energy in page by page and letter by letter. This Compendium itself, accompanied by 12 DVDs, is a Living Embodiment of Swami for all of
us now.

Divine existence, though Omnipresent is Physical during the period of God's Incarnation and it is Metaphysical after the physical body is deserted. Then the Divine Existence remains eternally in His Legacy in whichever form it manifests. This Compendium is, therefore, a Divine
Legacy in the form of a Museum depicting Sri Sathya Sai Baba emanating Divine Rays of Grace in all directions. The possession and experiencing this Compendium through its reading or viewing will be a constant companionship with Swami at all times and under all circumstances and situations.

This Compendium is essential for all the devotees of Swami so that they will come to understand the extent, the levels and the volume of Swami's self-less loving service to humanity. This Compendium is indispensable for all others including the critics and media for it will serve as an authentic documentary reference Volume for forming an opinion, verifying the truths and choosing appropriate words, usages and sights to disseminate information about Swami's fervent Mission which will march on progressively hereafter unhindered, uninterrupted and undisturbed since it is founded on Love, Truth, Righteousness, Peace and Non-violence.

When the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation (SSSO) was set-up in Mumbai in 1965, few realised that in hindsight, historians would view the event as epoch making.

Fewer still envisaged the unprecedented global penetration the organisation would achieve over the next four and a half decades. From the remotest taluks in rural India to island nations in the Pacific, to each of the republics of the former Soviet Union and the G8 countries, from the North Pole to the South Pole, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, the SSSO today has become synonymous with pure love driven social uplift projects. 2

Through its groundbreaking work in fields of community service, character education, healthcare and harmony of religions, the Sai Organisation has borne a definitive impact on the society and is increasingly being recognised by the world as a model worth emulating.

Based on Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s vision of Spiritual Socialism, the SSSO has emerged as the most globally spread, barriers-free, compassionate and far reaching service agency whose members unite as one human family while honouring their respective ethnic, cultural and religious traditions.

To capture this wide panorama of the Sai mission over the past 45 years, Sri Indulal Shah, Founder and International Advisor of the SSO, has cashed in on his long and close association with the Sai movement to compile the

This bible of the Sai Mission is a chronicle of a silent revolution that has ushered the Age of Sai Altruism globally.

Acclaimed as a spiritual lighthouse for posterity, the Compendium of the SSSO is a convergence of an insider’s view of the organisation’s growth, in-depth research, detailed documentation and state-of-the-art technology. 3

The Compendium package comes with a book, accompanied by a set of 12 DVDs to capture every possible aspect of the most peaceful yet potent revolution the human spirit has ever undergone.

It fulfills the prophecy that Bhagavan Baba revealed to the Blitz Editor (late) Mr. R.K. Karanjia in September 1976. In his most extensive media interview ever, Sri Sathya Sai Baba had prophesised a kind of spiritual socialism based on the conversion of wealth into a trusteeship for the removal of poverty. He has spoken of a change that must evolve from the heart instead of being imposed from outside. Recognising that all materialist doctrines had failed to bring about any real transformation, Baba had advised spiritual transformation through selfless social service as necessary for a revolution in human consciousness way back in 1976 when He had clarified:

"We need to transform society from false to real values. We have to convince people to embrace a high level of living and thinking on the basis of humility, morality, compassion and detachment, as against the existing greed for competitive luxury and conspicuous consumption. People have to be convinced that the only way to rouse the latent divinity in them is to master desires and conquer greed for pleasure and luxury instead of being a slave to these false materialistic values. Less Luggage – More Comfort.

Curb your desires, reduce your wants, live in spiritual austerity, and the available material will be sufficient for all humanity. More than that, the tensions of a competitive socio-economic system will be dissolved and peace of mind will be restored.

Life is like a journey in a vehicle between birth and death. The body is the vehicle in which you are motoring to death … Would it not be better to attend to the immortal spirit rather than waste time which is running out on gaining wealth and securing comforts? This is the logic of spiritualism with which I seek to change the attitude of people."

What Baba revealed to Editor Karanjia in 1976 has come to fruition as a global phenomena like none before and Shri Indulal Shah’s compendium captures the various facets of this historic mission with the same love, proficiency and excellence that have become synonymous with the name Sri Sathya Sai.
