Birthday with a difference

THE 14 Sai Baba organisation centres paid tribute to their founder at the weekend with charitable work.

Fiji's Sai Baba organisation national chairman Mohan Lal said members from all walks of life and religious backgrounds brought to the forefront the messages and teachings of Sai Baba.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born as Sathyanarayana Raju on November 23, 1926 and died at the age of 84 in 2009 after a long illness.

To a spiritual aspirant, Sai Baba is the divine master par excellence; to a rationalist, he is the greatest humanitarian on earth; to thousands of modern youth, he is the leader with a dynamic vision and a colossus of inspiration; to a devotee, he is simply divinity in human form; and to everyone else who has had the opportunity to interact with him, he is pure love walking on two feet.

Mr Lal said service to mankind is service to God.

"On selected days, visits are made to institutions such as old peoples' homes, Home of Compassion, Father Law Home, Hilton Special School, orphanages and the School for the Blind," he said.

"Food parcels are distributed on a regular basis. Medical camps are conducted in rural areas with help of volunteer doctors and volunteers from NZ, Australia and Fiji."
