Aradhana Mahotsavam Seva Activites

As a Love Offering to Beloved Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba the Sathya Sai Centre of Central Durban, dedicated the month of April 2018 to perform extended Seva Activities. Three engaging Seva activities were meticulously planned that would allow a cross section of devotees to participate in over this sacred period.

1. The first thought provoking Seva activity took place on the 14th April 2018 as a Sports and Fun Day at the William Clark Gardens Children’s Home in Sherwood, Durban. 30 ardent devotees spent the morning interacting with the children and taking them through the various events and fun activities. The 46 children of William Clark thoroughly enjoyed this fun morning. It was evident that these loving children truly valued the time spent with them. A scrumptious delicious lunch was provided by the devotees to these children in the form of pizza. It was startling to discover that most of the children have never had a pizza before. To see the joy and happiness on their faces when having fun with the sports and then tasting pizza for the first time was priceless. This awe inspiring Seva taught us to value our time and appreciate what we have, even the little things in life matter and to share generously.

2. The second Seva initiative was an environmental based Beach Clean-Up seva. This was planned jointly with the KZN Beach Clean-Up Group. This love offering coincided with the 22nd of April 2018 being Earth Day. Twelve energetic devotees together with the KZN Group helped to collect 300Kgs of litter that morning.

Unfortunately there was so much litter still left and it would take a great effort and a massive number of devotees to remove the beach litter on our selected Blue Lagoon Beach. This could however be a great opportunity for a Sai Regional or National drive to embark on one massive Beach Clean-Up at a later stage. This Seva activity brought home the magnitude of litter that is constantly polluting our oceans and beaches. Sadly there is still great disrespect for the environment and our surroundings. Going forward the centre will plan more environmentally based Seva activities to benefit and add power to save our planet.

About

"The main objective of the Sathya Sai Organization ... is to help you recognize the divinity inherent in you. So, your duty is to emphasize the One, to experience the One in all you do or speak. Do not give importance to differences of religion, sect, status, or color. Have the feeling of one-ness permeate all your acts. Only those who do so have a place in this Organization; the rest can withdraw."
