Inspirational Note ...
In 2015 one of the Satsangs held in the divine presence at Cisternino, Italy. A devotee seeks Swami's guidance to understand the balance between self-confidence and the ego.

And here is what Swami said:

Nobody is useless, whom I have created. Even a blade of grass, which might seem insignificant, feeds and shelters beings, insects. When you are a human, the crest jewel of all creation, how can you be useless? The very fact that I am still giving you another day to live tells you about the faith and trust that I have in you. It is that that you must believe in. You are alive - that is proof that Swami still believes that you will be of service to others. Dust you think, dust you are. God you think, God you are. Therefore, it just depends on how you think.

Canadian Newsletter April Edition 2019
With Bhagawan ’s Divine Grace, the Canadian youth expanded their food distribution in British Columbia (BC) region of Canada.

For the Easter weekend; food packets with butter rolls, bananas, fruit juices and granola bars were served to their needy friends on the streets of Surrey and Vancouver, BC.
Bay Area Seva
The Sai Ashraya team have been serving in the local neighborhoods of poverty stricken Oakland for quite some time now. As the word is spreading that a group of people are doing excellent yeoman service to the community, more people have started joining in. These are not Sai devotees. They are friends and family from every walk of life.
This is what Bhagawan said, that His Love will expand and envelop the whole world! It is a great joy to see kids from ages 9-14 come together by themselves and bond over this selfless activity. It is more awesome to see the kids talk about homelessness in the city and discuss their issues and debate the solutions. Only Bhagawan can do this miracle of transformation of young hearts. It does not matter whether they pray to Bhagawan or not, but they are doing HIS work and God will pull them into His fold one way or the other. We are truly witnessing the spring of Prema Yuga, where the entire world is going to be filled with Atma Jnanis and spiritually elevated beings!
Huntsville, Alabama Homeless Seva
April 17, 2019
Bhagawan grants the opportunity to experience the immortal words of Jesus Christ - “I and My Father are One”- each time the youth participate in Seva . In truth, it is performed by Him and for Him. Work is transformed into worship and the serving of a simple breakfast consisting of bagels and oatmeal becomes an exchange of Divine Love, with His Grace. When the young adults of Alabama serve the homeless each month, their sense of individuality is dissolved and any sense of inadequacy vanishes. When Christ declared, “I have overcome the world,” He wanted mankind to know that the ever-pure Atma cannot be contaminated by any worldly defilements or mental conjuring.
Youth for Youth in Kansas City
After the long winter months, the youth of rural Kansas (Hays and Manhattan, KS) were finally able to drive to Kansas City to meet the homeless youth. They used to serve and support the homeless youth regularly, until the harsh winter made it unsafe to drive almost every weekend. Throughout winter, some of the volunteers from the rural areas had continued to provide long distance support to the homeless youth by daily calls and online services. Thanks to technology, they were also able to provide rides and meals despite the distance!
Feed The Need Seva
Houston - Texas, March 24 , 2019
Feeding the hungry with reverence and humility is the selfless service that is urgently needed today. The cry for food is being heard everywhere, though if each one worked hard, the problem would not arise at all. We talk of stomachs to be filled, but each stomach arrives in the world with two hands. Those hands, if they are kept idle or unskilled, cannot fulfill their assignment of finding the food for the stomach. Work hard; that is the message. And share the gain with others. The harder you work, the greater your gain, the more you can share. Work hard and more important still, work together with others in loving kinship.
