Gayatri mantra- The Universal Prayer
Sathya Sai Baba on several occasions exhorted devotees to chant the Gayatri mantra and elaborated on its potency. In a discourse on October 13, 1961, Baba declared "Repeat the Gayatri - it is a universal prayer. It has three parts, meditation on the glory of God as the illumination immanent in the three worlds - upper, middle and lower (Om Bhur Bhuva Swah; Tat Savitur Vareñyam); it has smaraña or picturization of the Grace (Bhargo Devasya Dhīmahi) and prārthanā, prayer for compassion for the sake of liberation, through awakening of intelligence that pervades entire universe, not to any particular name or form of that intelligence; and so, all can use it and be saved by it. There can be no fanaticism, no hatred, no rivalry, if the Gayatri is adhered to, its pious repetition will clarify the passions and promote love."
Starting from today, we chant Gayatri (9x) with family/friends daily at 9pm local time followed by Samastha Lokha Sukhino Bhavanthu (3x) and Om Shanti (3x) till November 23, 2019. May our individual and collective prayers charge the environment with positive thoughts and vibrations.

Many are pleasantly surprised to learn how much Sathya Sai Baba has advocated for women, creating opportunities for them in education, spiritual practices and encouraging equal rights in the family and society at large. So, let’s talk about it! There are two segments to this Saicast- Let’s talk about it, series. First, we will be publishing curated excerpts from Swami’s discourses on topics related to women for either self or group reading. Feel free to create a ‘Sai-book club.’ These excerpts will include real-life scenarios and questions for reflection/discussion.
Twice a month leading up to the conference, we will be hosting an online forum (one hour) with an eminent guest speaker to share their perspectives on topic selected for study and explore ways by which we can apply Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings in our daily lives. Stay tuned!
