2016-11-17 06:02

SRI Sathya Sai Baba devotees are invited to celebrate the spiritual teacher’s 91st birthday at the Sai Centre in Marburg next week.

Sathya Sai Baba was one of the most revered spiritual teachers in the world. He is also known as Sri Sathya Sai Baba­, Sai Baba, Swami, Bhagavan or simply as “Baba” to millions of people.

His followers come from all faiths and races and meet regularly for devotional singing, to study his teachings, and to engage in service activities in order to practice his message of love and peace to unite all mankind.

On 28 March, 2011, Sai Baba was admitted to hospital following respiration-related problems.

After nearly a month of hospitalisation, he died on 24 April, 2011, aged 84.

The Sathya Sai Organisation was founded by Sathya Sai Baba to enable members to undertake service activities as a means to spiritual advancement and has over 1 200 Sathya Sai Centres (branches) in 126 countries.

The Port Shepstone Sai Centre will hold celebrations on 23 November from 6.30pm onwards.

Supper will be served.
