Program Highlights

 

The program is intended to bring together Sathya Sai devotees to discuss these profound truths in practical terms, learn from each other, energize ourselves, and move forward along the path laid out clearly by Bhagawan. Some highlights of the conference are noted below. 

 

The first day of the conference is dedicated to in-depth discussions on Love. The senior leaders of SSIO, Prasanthi Council, and SSSWF will address the audience from the depths of their personal experiences, garnered at the lotus feet of Bhagawan Himself. The youth, who are very near and dear to our beloved Swami, will share their experiences on the first day. After lunch, the participants will form small study circles, and engage in round-table discussions – followed by reports by the moderators. We will also have the opportunity to listen to short, 5 to 10 minute personal anecdotal stories of transformations, through Love. The Sathya Sai Youth and Children will entertain us after dinner with uplifting cultural programs that reflect their heritage and the theme of the conference. 

 

The second day will focus on Service, as love in action. The agenda follows a similar format as the first day, with study circles, reports by moderators, and panel discussions on love and service. An interesting part of the afternoon program is the briefing on Service Projects – specific to the countries in the zone. The youth will then present a program of their choice consistent with the conference theme. After dinner, national and regional service coordinators will present personal experiences of transformation through Service.

 

The third day program provides an opportunity for the youth to present their experiences of personal transformation, and other youth initiatives, including the Sathya Sai Youth Leadership Program and 2016 International Youth Festival. Participants will have an opportunity to ask the Chairman, Prasanthi Council, questions related to the SSIO, and also clarify their understanding and knowledge about Love and Service in practical terms. The Zone Chairs will present the global initiatives of the SSIO. We encourage all Sathya Sai devotees to participate in the Pre-World Conferences. The conferences provide chances to one and all to learn about the programs, the mission and the vision of the SSIO. It also offers them a blessed opportunity to share Swami’s message, His love, and His work. Swami has said that Unity is Divinity. This is a golden chance for us to experience that Unity.
