Krishiv Khandelwal -Winner of Ganga Quest 2021


Ganga Quiz Winner – Krishiv Khandelwal – Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas Mumbai Metro Region (3)

It is indeed a matter of immense pride that Krishiv Khandelwal, a student of Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas has been declared the winner of Ganga Quest 2021. Krishiv Khandelwal’s journey in the Ganga Quiz has been a story of dedication, devotion, and determination scripted by the Divine Master to perfection. Out of lakhs of children from 113 countries, it is indeed a Divine Miracle that the winner is a student of the Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas. Although Krishiv, a student of Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas, Mumbai, was a topper in Week 4 of the Quiz, his name got missed out inadvertently. This blunder was discovered by the child himself and with the Divine intervention of Swami, he made it to finals. Swami motivated us to participate in this quiz and He rewarded the efforts of the brilliant child and his dedicated parents.

Boys’ Education Details: Krishiv Khandelwal, DOB – 21st Sept 2009, Class – VII [this academic year onwards]. School – Gokuldham High School, Goregaon (E), Mumbai

Mother’s Name – Jaya Khandelwal & Father’s Name – Piyush Khandelwal

This is also a lesson in teamwork and how crucial is the role of parents and Gurus in Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas. This quiz is not about winning or losing, but being aware of the rich tradition and glory of Bharat. My congratulations to all those who participated in this Quiz.

Jai Hind.-Jai Sairam

Loving Sairam! 


Every Act of the Avatar is predetermined with the goal fixed and unshakable. Our loving Lord Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba took a small step in the year 1959 on 29th of June, planting a Banyan sapling on the hilltop placing underneath a Yantra created by Him from thin air. This grew into a massive meditation tree giving solace to numerous Sadhakas in the past years and continue to help devotees connecting Swami even today. But this was not just the end of His Leela as we see things unfolding in a miraculous way whereby by around 5000 saplings made out of the sacred tree are going to be planted in the nook and corner of the world. These saplings in turn will grow into vast meditation trees in the future and will stand as a testimony to the Divine Legacy of the Avatar.

It is in this context that we are to prepare ourselves for the dawn of a new era and plant the saplings in various centres/locations of our states with utmost devotion and care. The following points may be looked into while undertaking this Seva to maintain the sanctity and uniformity. Read full text in PDF Planting Divine Saplings of Holy Vata Vruksha

Each Sapling is of average 5″ diameter, 12″-15″ in height and weighing 4.6. kgs on average.

E-Learning of Vedas


Sub: Launch of the Online Veda learning Module for Youth on Gurupoornima

Dear Brother & Sisters, Loving Sairam!

Bhagawan has always blessed that the young boys and girls must learn the essence of the vedas. He in the initial years of His Mission started the Prasanthi Vidwan Mahasabha and thereafter introduced Veda Chanting across all His institutions. Taking a cue from His Mission, many states in India have taken up Veda Chanting in a very big way. Even in the Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas , the learning of Vedas has been initiated in an appropriate manner. Details in the Circular-48.

Sevadals – The Unsung Heroes of Prasanthi

For over 52 days, 1326 selfless souls from different states of India continuously served in the Prasanthi Nilayam ashram.

During the national lockdown in India, while others elsewhere were in distress and fear, they strengthened their faith and soaked in His grace.

How did they do it?  What can we learn from them?

We hope this little documentary will kindle that spark of sacrifice that is present in each one of us.
