“Service is the best cure for egoism; so engage in it to relieve pain and grief to the extent that you can. Try to assuage, as far as you can, the distress of others; it is the best sadhana for the aspirant”
- Divine Discourse, Jan 13, 1968
Sri Sathya Sai Baba says, “Good health is the most important acquisition one should aspire for”. Through right action one achieves purity of heart which leads to the acquisition of the higher knowledge. When right action is coupled with the higher knowledge, there is true service. Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 17 (1984). Sri Sathya Sai Baba advises “Whomsoever you may serve, regard it as Service to God. Wherever you may be, render service with all your heart. Consider that in rendering service, you are serving yourself and not others”. To the medical community he instructs to treat patients with love and pray for the well-being of all patients.
At the Sathya Sai Organization, medical services are provided in the form of Medical Clinics, Dental Camps, Mental Health Camps, Supply Donation, Blood Donation and Marrow Drives. These services are provided at the center, regional and national level.
