With blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, it is with great joy that we release the Sadhana of Love – Love is the Source, Love is the Path, Love is the Goal for the benefit of Sathya Sai Youth.
The Sadhana of Love is a spiritual discipline programme lovingly dedicated to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and His Mission to help humanity realise its inherent divinity through the manifestation of divine love. Download the Sadhana of Love document here.
Guided by one’s conscience, the voice of God within, devotees can chose four sadhanas to practice from a wide range of spiritual disciplines drawn from Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings. It is recommended that one sadhana be selected from each of the four steps of the programme: Self-confidence, Self-satisfaction, self-sacrifice and Self-realisation. These steps form Sathya Sai Baba’s path to Self-realisation. On Swami’s 90th Birthday, the Sadhana of Love will also be available on the new SSIO website with a sadhana selection tool to aid the selection process.
Sai Youth are encouraged to lovingly and consistently practise their four chosen sadhanas in the period leading up to the Sathya Sai International Youth Festival, to be held in Prasanthi Nilayam from 12-14 July 2016. Adults and children as well as youth not attending the festival are heartily encouraged to join in. This is a divine opportunity for us all to focus with full awareness on love, purify our hearts and minds, and realise love as our true Self.
Sathya Sai Baba’s life and teachings centre on love and so the “sadhana of prema or love” (SSIB 1973.5), or the practice of love, is central to devotees’ lives. As such, the Sadhana of Love programme recognises that love is the underlying source, path and goal of all sadhanas. For regardless of the type of sadhana, it is love that is important. In the practice of sadhana, Swami’s loving guidance and our own experience demonstrates that it is love alone that prompts, energises and fulfills sadhana. Thus, the Sadhana of Love programme places supreme importance on the practice and manifestation of love through sadhana.
The Sadhana of Love is a divine opportunity for all devotees to walk the path of love, manifest the love we already are and merge in the Ocean of Love.
