The qualifications for membership are to be an eager aspirant for spiritual progress, to have full faith in the name that the Organization bears.

Sathya Sai Baba, April 21, 1967


Sathya Sai Baba says that selfless service is the first step on the spiritual path, the best spiritual exercise to remove the evil of egoism and to eliminate the nefarious pull of the mind toward desires. "The core of this spiritual discipline of selfless service," says Sathya Sai Baba, "is to see everyone as yourself and yourself in everyone." He says that when we serve, we are not serving others, we are serving the God in us, the same God who is equally present in others. It is this attitude that changes our service into selfless service, making it a spiritual activity. "The real value of this service," says Sathya Sai Baba, "is that it reforms us and reshapes us as we serve."

As members of the Sathya Sai Organization we are committed to a path of self transformation through the practice of loving selfless service. We hope that the resources on this website allows you to deepen your study and practice of this eternal message whether you are a member or whether you are simply interested in exploring further.
