Issue 95 - October 28, 2018
Inspirational Note ...
In 2016 a Satsang held in the divine presence in California, USA. A devotee seeks guidance on the solar project which he had embarked upon.

And here is what Swami said:

Implement it on a project basis and demonstrate it, document it and then there will be an opportunity for you to present it to the scientific community. Within a year, acceptance will slowly come. Any new development is first rejected as impossible; thinking in the scientific world has always been to resist change, and that is the issue right now. Implement it, demonstrate it, document and present it in a forum which will come to your notice and things will start changing from there. It will be another year before it really starts seeing the daylight.
He is trying to produce something that will provide a constant supply of energy with the result that all the oil companies and all the power companies will have to shut down. It is that big a mission that he has embarked upon. Of course, acceptance will come slowly – in small pockets to start with, and then much later, people will accept it and embrace it.

The youth are the future of the world, and everyone's tomorrow is dependent on their skill and sincerity today. The world's population is young: 42 percent of people are under the age of 25! But many a youth are lost today for want of direction and proper guidance. Therefore, the necessary enthusiasm and encouragement must be generated among the youth. Every youth has the responsibility to undertake his or her journey of life with enthusiasm, dynamism, purity, patience and perseverance. The need-of-the-hour is to address their today holistically, for a better world tomorrow.

Argentina Seva
In September, Argentina was blessed by the Divine Visit of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in His Subtle Form. Swami visited Buenos Aires to inaugurate the Ashram for Latin America, which is located in the outskirts of the capital city. As a result, the youth were engaged in different activities to have the Ashram ready. The youth and the elders worked in unison to make the necessary arrangements for Swami. In this way, the hand, head and heart energy gave rise to the inauguration of the magnificent multi--religious Centre for Human Development.
Canadian News October 2018
We are grateful to our loving Lord, Shri Sathya Sai Baba, for giving us the energy and resources to serve and feed our needy friends on the streets. The youth are preparing to serve warm clothing for the upcoming winter season.
October Newsletter – Mexico
Two years ago, when the group of devotees first visited Rene’s Gym, they were shocked to see the humble abandoned house it was in. The tin roof had no structure to hold it, and a strong wind could send it flying. Little by little and with the help of Vivanza, a construction company where Rene worked, the gym became something else.

As part of their service, the Seva group advised Rene on how to convert the second abandoned house into a medical examining and psychological counseling room. An all-purpose room was also adapted for giving workshops on different trades.
Bay Area Outreach
The youth drove to Oakland to the usual place where they see a lot of homeless tents. When they reached to the spot, they were surprised to see that there was no homeless encampment there! Thankfully a Sai brother noticed a homeless person walking into a fenced area nearby which was secured and locked and noticed there were a lot of sheds / artificial temporary homes (which is good for two people).
The youth drove to another place in Oakland where they usually find a lot of homeless encampment. That encampment was not yet been moved and they parked on the streets and went out and distribute the hot soup to the residents in the tent. Soon, the soup was done and people were very thankful to receive the soup.
Huntsville, Alabama, Homeless Seva
October 12, 2018
Bhagawan’s very mission being to rescue humankind from the chaos they have created, the Sai youth of Alabama could not think of have been “sent” to a more fitting place – a rescue mission – to do Seva ! The youth are so fortunate to be anchored to Him and His teachings during these turbulent times. When disruption threatens to enter our lives, He gently guides us back towards the path and the goal.

October in Kansas City
The Sai Youth from Kansas City were inspired to embark on a journey to understand and start contributing to their local communities of displaced youth. What started out began as a few simple acts of service turned into an offering of personal transformation to our Lord. The youth had started out by providing meals weekly at a youth shelter in Kansas City every week. The meals they were providing allowed them the chance to interact with many youth, and it didn't take long for the group to see where they could get plugged in and be of most help.
Seva at Ronald McDonald House
Houston - Texas
On the morning of Sunday, 30 September 2018, Houston youth gathered to share their love by serving breakfast to seriously ill children and their families staying at Ronald McDonald House. This is a new Seva the Houston Youth have taken on in their continuing effort to serve the Lord through serving those who are suffering. The youth not only serve a healthy breakfast but also talk with the families, for as sometimes even just a few words of concern and compassion can light up a person’s day.
Transformation
Love and Service
Swami has always said that the real purpose behind doing any service activity is “Transformation” of the doer. Swami has also set “Love and Service” as the pathway for us to reach Him...
I always saw it as a way to help society and people, and could never connect the dots as to what “transformation” is, or how one would be transformed by Love and Service. How Love and Service would lead to self-inquiry and self-realization was and is a big mystery for me. Of course, this is something that would come only with direct experience. I feel extremely fortunate to share my own experiences regarding the same.
