Sathya Sai Organization

"The Organization itself is not important; it only provided an opportunity for men, women and children of all faiths to gather together and find the way to progress along the spiritual path and to help others on the same journey." – Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The main unit of the Sathya Sai Organization is the Sai Centre. There is a Sai Centre in every major city in all over the world. Each Centre promotes spiritual, educational and community service activities.

The Organization provides a forum where spiritual aspirants learn spiritual values. It is a training ground where members practice the teachings of Baba, with special emphasis on loving service to others. The Organization seeks to purify the individual's heart and mind and enables them to see all people and objects as reflections of God. By spiritually transforming the individual, the Organization seeks to transform the world.

"The Sai Organization is simply a gathering together of people who have a common goal in personal spiritual development." – Sri Sathya Sai Baba
"The Sai Organization should be motivated by love. You join the Organization both to give, to receive, to progress, to learn, to become inspired and to serve." – Sri Sathya Sai Baba
