Sri Sathya Sai World Foundation

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Sai Ram!

We know that our beloved Swami lives in our hearts. Regardless of the chaos in the world and the tumult that assails us from time to time, He is always there. He is always enlightening us, loving us, fulfilling whatever each of us might need to realize our Divine Selves.

At this moment, there is a new challenge. Newspapers have been making unwarranted allegations against the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust of India. In so doing they have assailed the Great Works, The Divine Works, accomplished by our Beloved, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

The Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust has been responsible for managing all of the expenses entailed in providing free healthcare, education, water, and food for multitudes of poor people for decades. The Trust has been responsible for managing the maintenance of the ashram for the accommodation of multitudes of spiritual pilgrims for decades. This is true and evident for all to see.

These Great Works have been recognized and lauded repeatedly over the years by administrations of political leaders, supreme court justices, heads of state governing all of India, including the current leaders of India. This is true and evident for all to see.

Donations of Sai devotees from India and from all over the world have sponsored these remarkable humanitarian efforts without any solicitation whatsoever. All who are involved in the management of these great works are devotees, spiritual seekers. They have managed the affairs of the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust effectively and transparently. This also is true and evident for all to see.

Is it possible that the newspaper reporters have more knowledge and greater wisdom than the men who have led their country for so many years? No, it is not possible! What then is the basis for the outrageous allegations and misinterpretations being perpetrated so irresponsibly?

Let us all recognize with respect, gratitude, and Sai Love the men who have managed the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust. They were selected by Swami, Himself. They have remained close by His Side for decades living austerely as His devotees and performing their duties faithfully and effectively. They are resolved to continue their management of the Sri Sathya Sai Institutions in India and Prasanthi Nilayam in the same exemplary manner in which they were run under the Divine Guidance of our Beloved Swami.

Swami’s Divine Guidance will always be accessible to everyone. We have merely to seek and we will find.

Let us all pray that Swami’s Love and Inner Guidance will enable all of us to rise above these mundane problems and not be distracted from our spiritual quest.

Lovingly in the Service of Sai,
Michael Goldstein
