A Guide to Service in American Sathya Sai Baba Centers
Sai Organization USA Service Newsletter
"Between the hill of individual life and the region of the Universal, there is the flooded river of Nature, with all its confusions and complexities. It is difficult to discover where it comes from, how it accumulates all that uproar and where it ultimately ends. But fortunately, we have in every human community, BRIDGE-builders, who help people to cross" - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

In Sai Centers, selfless service is just as important a spiritual activity as devotional singing. The members of this organization are always ready and eager to help the needy, the sick and the poor.

Baba makes it clear that the service we do is for our own sake. Naturally, we want to help others, but the real value of the service lies in what it does for us  - provided we do it with the right attitude: as a spiritual discipline. Selfless service helps us to:
  • Control and purify the mind
  • Put a ceiling on our desires
  • Erase our karmic burden
  • Remove the ego
  • Bring love into our lives
  • Experience the Unity of all
  • Become aware of the God within all
  • Win the Grace of God

Our center undertakes a number of service activities...learn more

Consider service as the best spiritual discipline (sadhana), but do not believe that you can reform or reshape the world. - Sathya Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Speaks VII, Chap. 23, 192 (old edition)

Service is effective only when "I and mine" are replaced by "God and God's". - Sathya Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Speaks V, Chap. 22, 112 (old edition)

Do not keep yourself apart, working on your own salvation through meditation. Move among your sisters looking for opportunities to help, with the Name [of God] on the tongue and the Form before the eye of the mind. - Sathya Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Speaks VII, Chap. 39, 204 (old edition)
