Swami's Treasure Box - Youth Offering to Swami 23 Nov, 2013

Dearest Sai Youth,

Loving Jai Sai Ram to you all. We pray you are all shining bright with Swami's divine grace.

My Students are My Wealth - Swami's Treasure Box

Our Beloved Bhagawan has on many occasions reminded HIS youth that we are HIS wealth, knowing that truly it is He who is our Greatest Wealth! With this in mind, the International Sathya Sai Youth Council would like to present Swami a treasure box consisting of birthday messages from ALL Youth around the world. These messages will be compiled into one booklet and placed into a golden treasure box, which will be offered to Swami. The treasure box with our messages inside will be presented to Swami on 23rd Nov 2013 by a few representatives of the International Sathya Sai Youth Council. One of the aims of the International Sathya Sai Youth Council is to bring the Sai Youth of the world together as ONE. In this offering, cards from different countries, cards made with unique ideas, cards painted with selected colours and cards filled with chosen vocabulary will be put together as ONE into a treasure box. This implies that we are God's Treasure when we all work as ONE with a common objective. Offering the card to Swami as Sai Youth of the World is one of the many ways we will come together, celebrating our Lord who brings us so much Joy.

Card Guidelines:

  1. 120 GSM A3 paper is to be used. Kindly stick ONLY to this weight of Paper that compilation will be systematic and easy.
  2. Any colour of paper can be used.
  3. Cards have to be prepared in LANDSCAPE format on A3 paper. PORTRAIT format is not encouraged due to the orientation of the treasure box and presentation of the cards.
  4. Messages, paintings and any form of creative art work is welcome however, use of beads and other 3D objects on the cards should be minimal, so as not to affect the thickness of the card.
  5. Digital creations on the card are also permitted. A 30mm (3cm) margin is to be created on the left side of the landscape paper, for binding purposes. A 1 cm margin must exist on other sides of the paper.
  6. Personal/ Family cards will not be included in the offering

This offering is purely representative of the youth and their own creative ideas, messages and efforts. We are hoping to bind these A3 cards into one big book. Please include messages wishing Swami a Happy Birthday, expressing our love, prayers and gratitude. Let’s try this time not to ask Him for anything, but instead offer Him a Garland of Love, made by all his children everywhere. Keep in mind this is an offering from His Children all over the world, so let us try to get all the Youth from ALL the centres all over the world involved.

We hope the information provided above helps you in preparing a beautiful, heartfelt offering to Swami that can be put together with our brothers and sisters from other countries.
Please send your cards to your National Youth Coordinator.

Om Jai Sai Ram,

With Love,
