In Australia 2015 a devotee asked about service opportunities that are “not under the Sai banner”. Swami’s reply:
What is Sai banner? (laughter) Do you have a Sai flag, like an India flag, or an Australia flag? (laughter) Everything is Sai. What is not Sai? Everybody is Sai’s. So, everything belongs to Sai. You should not lose an opportunity to serve, wherever it comes to you. In fact, you should do it with all your strength and heart, so that people say, “This person seems to be very different from the others.
What makes him so different?” SAI, See Always Inside. If you keep looking inside yourself, you will always find Sai within. If you look outside, you will not find Him. You must search for the thing where it is, not in some other place. It is like a foolish man who puts his spectacles on his head and looks for them everywhere else, when they are right on his head. God is right within you and everything belongs to God, so there is no distinction. If you have an opportunity, go and serve anywhere.
