God is in you, around you, behind you, above you, beside you - BABA
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, adored and followed by millions of His devotees and disciples as God Incarnate, around the world was born on November 23, 1926, in a tiny hamlet of Puttaparti in the South Indian State of Andhra Pradesh.
Living in abject poverty and deprivation lead Him to begin His divine mission of alleviating the sufferings of the poor and the needy, through free educational institutions that taught thousands from Kindergarten to Post graduate studies, healthcare centers from primary to the most specialised tertiary care hospitals which treated millions without a fee, massive drinking water supply projects in the arid districts of India that quenched the thirst of the parched millions free of cost, and social care centers actively run by His followers that reached out the bare essentials of life to the needy in the remotest parts of the world. Above all His contribution to the spiritual growth and religious harmony in the world is unparalleled. He inspired goodness and kindness in His followers, and transformed them in to agents of Selfless love and service towards their fellow beings.
After an earthly sojourn of 85 years on this planet, He shed His mortal coil on April 24, 2011 as recorded medically, however as He always reminded His followers that He was not just the body that housed His immortal spirit, He still continues to Live, Love and Lead the mankind in His own subtle ways. Those who have experienced His continuing presence even now, bear a witness to an unparalleled event in the human history.
