National Sathya Sai Orientation Conference 2014

National Event

Dear Fellow Office Bearers and Active Members,
Loving Sai Ram to you!

With the Divine Grace and Blessings of our Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, it is my privilege to invite you, on behalf of the UK Central Council, to the National Sathya Sai Orientation Conference 2014.

Date: Saturday 25th January 2014
Time: 10am to 5.30pm
Venue: Onslow St Audrey’s School, Old Rectory Drive, Hatfield, AL10 8AB.

The theme chosen for this conference is ‘One with Sai - His Work and His Words’. In living our daily lives as Sai devotees, and in performing our roles as office bearers or active workers in the Sai Organisation, it is indeed our aspiration and endeavour to experience the ‘Sai’ that we really are. Our Divine Compassionate Lord Sai reminds us always:

God is love, God is peace: God is strength. How can a person be in contact with God, and yet, be proud and acrimonious? Agitated and angry? Weak and vacillating? His claim to be in contact with God is only a laughable foible; it cannot be true. A tree is judged by its fruit. (SSS 12-15)

Do not feel, Dhehosmi (I am the body). Roar, Brahmaasmi (I am Brahman, I am all this and more, I am all this is, was, and will be)---and littleness, time, space, ego, all will flee from your heart! You will be Love, Love, Love - and naught else. That is to say, you will be Divine, one with the One. (SSS 10-31)

Only through Love can union with the Universal be realised. (SSS 19-1)

The Conference Programme - consisting in the main of talks, workshops and interactive sessions - will give an opportunity to share our experience and understanding of the theme, especially in the context of the various activities we undertake all across UK via the Wings of our sacred Sathya Sai Organisation. It is fondly hoped that with united efforts and sincere prayers to dearest Bhagawan, everyone would carry the love, enhanced understanding, and enthusiasm from the Conference to our respective Centres/ Groups, and thenceforth into our local communities.

I therefore invite all office bearers (current, outgoing and new) and active members of our Organisation to attend and participate in this conference actively, since we all have a significant opportunity to play in Bhagawan’s Divine Mission. Please accordingly reserve this date in your diaries and register immediately.

“This day, we are holding the Third World Conference of the Units of the Sathya Sai Seva Organisation. There is no special teaching to be offered to the office-bearers of these Units during this session. The life of Sai, the Message of Sai, the ideals Sai holds forth, the lesson that Sai teaches the world, are all enshrined in one word, love. Many are perhaps hoping for a special message on the occasion of the Inauguration of the Conference. I do not attach any extra importance to a World Conference nor do I feel any other gathering as less. These Conferences are held to satisfy your desire, to express your love. The petromax lamp needs pumping, off and on; the pin has to remove its grit sometimes. So, too, gathering together like this, you can exchange thoughts and make a few additions, or changes, improvements or amendments, in your attitudes and thought-styles.” (Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 14 , 55)

We look forward to meeting you.

I wish you and your families well and Sai Ram,

Dr Kiran Patel
UKCC Chairperson
