The Wings of the Organisation

Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations functions under three wings viz. (i) Spiritual, (ii) Education and (iii) Service. These symbolise Worship, Wisdom and Work respectively. Although the nature of activities undertaken under different wings appear to be distinct or dissimilar, yet there is an inherent interrelationship amongst all the three wings. Spirituality and Service are complementary to each other. Spirituality is the motivational force behind service and service is the fulfilment of spirituality. Therefore, spiritual knowledge must be skilled into wisdom and should be put into practice in the form of service to humanity in order to realise the ultimate objective for which the organisation has been established.

Thus, in order to successfully realise the purpose of joining the Sai Organisation, one must participate in activities of all the three wings.


Spiritual Wing

As the tree grows, the roots must also grow inwards. The growth of the tree is dependent on the roots inside the ground. Thus, the spiritual wing undertakes activities that are targeted to arouse inspiration and inward vision with a view to developing the urge to connect with the inner core and obtaining clarification to doubts or answers to questions related to spiritual progress of the member. It helps to nurture the inner self and awakening the inherent divinity. The activities undertaken by the spiritualwing include the following:
  • Bhajans
  • Nagarsankeertan
  • Study circles
  • Naamsmarana
  • Japa and Meditation
  • Spiritual class or lectures
  • Seminars

Education Wing

The Educations wing undertakes the following activities:
  • The Bal Vikas Course for children up to the age of 15 years
  • Courses for youth in the fields of Human Values, Indian Culture and Spirituality and other spiritual topics
  • Parenting programmes targeted towards educating youngs parents on value based parenting in accordance with the teachings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Service Wing

Sri Sathya Sai Baba professed, “Service is the life breath of the Sathya Sai Seva Organisation. Remember the truth that you are born to serve society.” The Service wing undertakes service activities with a view to serve the society, more particularly, the lesser privileged in the society. Such service activities apparently seem to benefit merely the recipients of the service on a worldly plane. However, on a spiritual plane, it benefits those who render such service as it helps them in their spiritual elevation towards attainment of self-realisation. Service activities that the organisation primarily engages in are:
  • Narayan seva
  • Medical camps
  • Veterinary camp
  • Educational assistance
  • Vocational training
  • Visit to hospitals
  • Visit to old age homes
  • Visit to orphanages
  • Visit leprosy colony or hospital
  • Gram seva (service in villages)
  • Providing relief during natural calamities or accidents.
